Thursday, August 31, 2023

A new book series has been established by Routledge, with a focus on popular culture. 

The Routledge Advances in Popular Culture Studies series is looking for original and interdisciplinary monographs or edited volumes, which expand our understanding of popular culture as reflecting world challenges, contexts, and situations. The Series places a particular emphasis on evolutions and transformations within popular culture — with a focus on icons, narratives, practices, and identities — and aims to provide interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, and transmedia perspectives.

The editor of the series welcomes proposals for projects on a wide range of topics, including (but not limited to): 

Eighteenth-Century Studies (ECS) Special Issue on Infrastructure Guest Editors: David Alff (University at Buffalo) and Jo Guldi (Southern Methodist University)

Eighteenth-Century Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, October 1, 2022

In recent years, growing numbers of humanists and social scientists have asked how societies provision basic amenities like potable water, waste disposal, rapid transit, and telecommunications. The resulting field of infrastructure studies extends critical attention to the environments we manufacture to gratify material need on a mass scale. Our special issue will consider what eighteenth-century studies brings to a multidisciplinary conversation that usually restricts its focus to the present.

Nexus Grad Conference Roundtable "From Interrogation and Critique to Dreaming and Doing: Postcritical Futures in Literary Studies"

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 21, 2022

In 2004, Bruno Latour published his seminal essay “Why Has Critique Run Out of Steam: Turning from Matters of Fact to Matters of Concern.” In the nearly twenty years following, there have been several literary scholars who have ruminated on this topic. We have since seen a rise of close reading (Heather Love, Sharon Marcus, S. Best) methodologies and theoretical frames regarding the usefulness (Rita Felski, 2008 and Sara Ahmed) of literature and literary studies. Yet, we still seem to be asking if what we do matters.

Cultures of Modernity

The Australasian Modernist Studies Network
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 31, 2022

Modernity is a cracked looking-glass, a double-edged sword. Michel Foucault describes modernity as a period acutely aware of itself as modern, determinedly engaged in reflecting on what it means to be of the moment, and self-consciously focused on presenting itself as new. But as Kirby Brown (Cherokee Nation) reminds us, formulations of the modern are equally formulations of the non-modern, since there is ‘no civilization without the savage, no modernity without the primitive, no modernism without tradition (or convention), no modern subject without its cultural, racial, temporal, geographic, and historical Other.

Women’s Writing and their Writings on Writing

The area of research delineated under the seminar Women Writers and their Writings on Writing is that of women novelists having inscribed their fictional and non-fictional contributions in English within the frame of postmodernism. Simultaneously using and abusing the canon, writers like Margaret Atwood, Antonia Susan Byatt, Ursula Le Guin, Doris Lessing, or Angela Carter, to name but a few, make their voices heard via metafiction, literary theory and criticism, newspaper articles, reviews, lectures and recorded/televised interviews – demarches which are quintessentially technical, therefore automatically/stereotypically associated with men.
