Non - A Journal of Alternative Sexualities in Literature and the Arts
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, May 31, 2022

Despite forming the basis for many cultural and political norms in the world today, sexuality is also that which resists easy normativity. In addition to agitating for change in the form of legal rights, critical thinking on non-conforming sexualities has also raised the question of sexuality itself as non-conformist. This latter strand of thinking allows us to think of sexuality as always having alternatives, and also being alternative to fixed forms of itself. This theorisation considers sexuality both from the political perspective from which it is often studied, and also from the perspective of literature and the arts.

The aftermath of societal and cultural traumas can be cause for growth, hope, change, and (r)evolution. The last two years have brought the world to such moments. Questions may arise such as: What is the role of Children’s and Young Adult Literature within and after such traumas? How do events such as war or pandemic cause reflection and change on societal, cultural, and/or individual levels? We seek papers that explore all aspects of Children’s and Young Adult Literature, as well as those addressing the conference theme of Post Now.

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, January 31, 2023

For nearly two decades, the “antisocial thesis” has enthralled queer theoretical thought, permeating a variety of debates surrounding relationality, sexuality, gender, race, psychoanalysis, and temporality. Christened by Robert L. Caserio during an infamous 2005 MLA panel, the antisocial thesis, Caserio elaborates, described a “decade of explorations of queer unbelonging” positioned against an intensifying “gay rage for normalizing sociability.” As Robyn Wiegman warns, however, the antisocial thesis “is not ‘a’ thesis.

Carryin’ the Banner: Critical Essays on the Newsies Film and Broadway Adaptation

updated: 
Wednesday, April 20, 2022 - 2:16pm
Emily Hamilton-Honey/SUNY Canton
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, October 1, 2022

Newsies, both as a film in 1992 and a Broadway show in 2012, has been a sleeper hit for all of its existence. Disney wrote the film off as a failure when it took roughly $15 million to make and only grossed $2.8 million – and yet, the film found a wide, willing, and devoted audience through VHS rentals and Disney Channel showings. The Newsies Broadway show was originally intended to be a licensed adaptation for high schools and colleges - and yet, the built-in audience was so eager for a Broadway adaptation that Disney Theatrical Productions decided to make the gamble.

Beyond Nancy Drew: U.S. Girls’ Series Fiction in the Mid-Twentieth Century, 1920-1970

Friday, October 28, 2022

As the series heroine par excellence, Nancy Drew has taken up most of the scholarly attention surrounding mid-century U.S. girls’ series, and for good reason given her popularity, longevity, and feminist leanings. Running from 1930 into the present day, Nancy has been foiling criminals for nearly a century, first as a spunky blond driving a roadster and then as a versatile  titian-haired girl in a convertible.

A growing number of scholars have acknowledged how the works of feminist scholars and feminist film scholars have influenced filmmakers and screenwriters (Radner and Stringer 2011; Roche 2014 and 2018; Maury and Roche 2020).
