Postcolonial Interventions invites academic articles for the upcoming June 2021 issue of the Journal which will be an Open Issue.
While the COVID-19 pandemic has plunged the world into similar processes of distress, loss and anxiety, it has also exacerbated authoritarian inclinations in various nation-states, widened socio-economic disparities and hardened competing fundamentalisms. It is hoped that the prospective submissions will take into account these recent upheavals alongside the usual explorations of literary and cultural representations focusing on postcolonial concerns from various corners of the globe.

Global South: Incarceration and Resistance
In recent decades, research has repeatedly demonstrated the overrepresentation of boys and men in children’s media (tv and movies, literature, and games). This field of research has, justifiably, focused primarily on the impact of this inequality on girls and women and has grown to consider not only the quantity of representations but also their content.
One year later, a “return to normal” remains the pandemic’s most enduring political promise, a token of hope to hedge against continued death and precarity. Held within this recursive promise, however, is a prima facie condition that deserves interrogation. What, exactly, is the “normal” to which we will return? Will capitalism and its attendant crises no longer demand our attention absent a continual state of emergency? The coherence and stability of the “normal” eludes us; Georges Canguilhem sees the normal as itself a chimeric category, one which, from the perspective of medicine and science, is not so distant from the “pathological” it is meant to foil.
This is a call for roundtable participants for a proposed roundtable at the Modernist Studies Association annual meeting in Chicago. Papers accepted into the roundtable are not guaranteed to be accepted into the conference.

The English theatre culture from the early Restoration to the early 18th century witnessed a marked shift towards increased commercialization and popularization of theatre. Gone were the post-1660 close association with the court, royalist productions, and prominently elite (well-off and upper-class) audiences. Instead, the experimentation with new genres, opening of new theatres, and a growing differentiation of the theatre programme into mainpieces, entr’acte entertainments and afterpieces revolutionized the established cultural hierarchies of the period.

With an abundance of caution, the Visawus Conference Committee are planning a possible virtual 2021 Conference in the event that Covid restrictions require such a change.

Unfortunately, our hotel contract requires that we make a decision on going live or virtual by June 1.
ABOUT CONFERENCE: 22-23 April 2021, ONLINE (via Zoom)Affects, emotions and perceptions have always been at the center of philosophical discussion. Yet the so called “Affective turn” in social studies and humanities is relatively a new phenomenon inspired by Deleuze and Guattari´s influential works among others. Affective turn challenges the still dominant representational approach in semiotics, discourse analysis and text analyses of all kind. Its goal is to overcome human exceptionalism together with the domination of the word-based language over the other forms of expression in the process of creating meaning and knowledge altogether.
We are currently accepting submissions for the Interdisciplinary studies panel at South Central Modern Language Association's 2021 conference. We encourage graduate students at the MA and PhD level to submit as well. There is no theme this year for the conference or the panel. A variety of approaches and topics may be submitted for this panel. Last conference's topics included media analysis; gender studies and drama; and business and literature.
