“Drum Dream Girls and Northern Lights Kids: New Models of Constructing Childhood for Diverse Children” - ChLA Guaranteed Session for MLA 2022

In their chilling study “Listening to Black Women and Girls: Lived Experiences of Adultification Bias,” Jamilia J. Blake and Rebecca Epstein conclude “that adults perceive Black girls as less innocent than white girls as young as 5-9 years old.” While Blake and Epstein centralize Black girlhood, this adultification bias similarly affects Black boys and other children of color. Children of color’s perception as ‘more adult’ than their white peers does not imbue them with any agency or power, rather, it divests them of childhood, at least within childhood’s contemporary definitions. Yet, these contemporary definitions of childhood are grounded in whiteness and white privilege.

Jonathan Bayliss created a fictional science called "dromenology" in his Gloucesterman series which was meant to study collective human endeavor. In contrast to the Romantic concept of individual action, this science describes activity conducted by humans as groups: work and play, religious ritual, and artistic endeavors such as dance or drama. He conceptualized such activity as the work that staves off entropy in the thermodynamic systems we call communities or societies.

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, March 1, 2021

"Troubling Topics, Sacred Texts": Sacred texts continue to inspire a diversity of scholarship that seeks to transform the ancient into the contemporary, the remote into the immediate, and the distant into the visceral experience. At the same time, the texts confront a plethora of troubling topics. Reflecting the spirit of comparative studies in religion seriously engaging two or more religious traditions around a common topic and the recent publication of Troubling Topics, Sacred Texts: Readings in Hebrew Bible, New Testament, Qur’an (De Gruyter 2021), this panel focuses attention on how not only sacred texts themselves but their religious inflections function to manage, signify, and negotiate the most troubling of topics.
