Dear Colleagues,

We are looking for proposals for the second volume of Screening Sex: The Sex Scene.

The Sex Scene: Representation, Performance, Aesthetics is the second of two volumes that will launch the Screening Sex book series with Edinburgh University Press (the first: The Sex Scene: Space, Place, Industry). We are open to essays that will interrogate the form, function, politics and significance of the sex scene in film, television and beyond. Taking the ‘sex scene’ as a critical starting point for the book series, the two edited collections offer a critical exploration of the significance of sex on screen and in sexual cultures, combining original research with a review of existing and current literature and debates.

The editors of the Australian Studies Journal are inviting contributions to a Special Issue on Black Australian author Mudrooroo (1938–2019), to be published October 2024. It will be guest-edited by Gerhard Fischer, UNSW Sydney.

Nearly 30 years after Mudrooroo's publicly rejected claim to Indigenous ancestry, and five years after the author's death in Brisbane (20 January 2019) following a decade of exile in India and Nepal, the proposed Special Issue will provide a first opportunity to re-appraise the complete oeuvre of one of Australia's most prolific, innovative and internationally renowned writers.

T.S. Eliot considered Dante to be his stylistic and existential model and his Commedia a fundamental reading for the appreciation of modern poetry in any language. He maintained that Dante appealed to universal concepts, which is the aspect that made his poem successful throughout the centuries and across the world. According to the festival Dante nel mondo, realized by the municipality of Ravenna in 2016, there are 58 complete translations of the Commedia in European, Asian, African, and South American languages.

Baltic Horror (Edited Collection)

Editor: Fernando Gabriel Pagnoni Berns. Universidad de Buenos Aires (Argentina)

Horror cinema and nationhood are inextricably linked together. As Robin Wood stated in his now classic essay “American Nightmare”, the horror film is the nightmarish meeting of director and audiences, both acknowledging that the film is the enactment of national repressed fears and anxieties. Wood’s thesis has been applied to other geographies, including Latin-America, Asia or part of Europa. Regarding the latter, Italy, Spain or UK have been object of different studies, essays and monographies. Yet, there are European geographies still lacking critical attention

1st International Conference on the Literary Knots between the Hispanic and the Anglophone Worlds “De guiris y castizos”

The pathways of both the Hispanic and the anglophone world, despite the apparent distance between them, and the different historical events that have confronted them, have usually been parallel, showing multiple links. These have affected all aspects of society (politics, economy, war, tourism, education…) and have been reflected by arts and letters. From the English intellectuals working at the Toledo School of Translators to Javier Marías’s novels, via the English (and then American) travelers in Spain, Telesforo de Trueba y Cossío’s hybrid texts, and the successive Spanish exile waves, both worlds have coalesced. And that has been done so with multiple and enjoyable fruits, attracting the attention of Academia in the recent decades.

Pursuing new directions in the subject of Shakespeare and race and addressing some of the gaps in current conversations about representation, casting, performance, diversity and inclusion, Mixed Race Shakespeares explores the ways in which Critical Mixed Race Studies (CMRS) might offer alternative readings of the plays and complicate certain trajectories and terminologies. More specifically, this collection aims to challenge hypodescent and monoracial norms, destabilize official racial categories/designations and advance the study of topics such as racial mixing, racial passing, interraciality, biracialism, multiracialism, transracialism and ethnoracialism.
