Following the pandemic, the ways in which mobile bodies are being administered and governed are in sync with advanced techniques of demographic control, which manifests into increasing digital surveillance on mobilities. Conversely, the neo-liberal economic order reifies speed and mobility, while ‘deterritorialization’ continues to constitute an important paradigm for the ‘flows and networks’ in a globalized world.

Tuesday, June 8, 2021 - 11:20am

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, August 20, 2021

The conference seeks to explore the narratives of displacement and to demonstrate the validity of a cross-disciplinary approach which brings together the historical, cultural, social and literary expertise in the handling of text. The conference will particularly focus on time and space representations and on treatment of the theme of cultural ambivalence and identity conflict. The subject of displacement will be regarded as both a migration, voluntary or forced, and a sense of being socially or culturally “out of place”.

Papers are invited on topics related, but not limited, to:

Through the centuries, humans have often shaped their social life by fictional moments and by taking part in fictional events: carnivals, representations, role plays, society plays, structured and semi-structured collective and singular moments where strictly coded contexts organize specific worlds and cultural dimensions. Play, in its wide acception and in its nature of artificial and coded mechanism, reflects historically the symbolic work by which human societies have elaborated, explained and organized the world.

Inspired by and Invigorating Myth and Literature: Contemporary Literature and the Classics

updated:

Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

Margaret Atwood’s Penelopiad, Madeline Miller’s Circe, Natalie Haynes’s A Thousand Ships, Luigi Malerba’s Ithaca Forever, Chigozie Obioma’s An Orchestra of Minorities, and Colm Toibin’s House of Names are just a small sample of contemporary works of literature that engage with and re-tell Classical literature and mythology. Drawing upon ancient subject matters, these new works demonstrate that the Classical tradition remains lively and relevant, even as they pull in new histories, points of view, and contexts.

Journal Articles for Special Issue: "Teaching Girlhood Studies"

updated: 
Tuesday, June 8, 2021 - 11:18am
Girlhood Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 15, 2021

Girlhood Studies, as an academic discipline, is still growing. Since some educational institutions do include girls’ studies as part of a special curriculum, an academic program, a certificate course, a minor, or as part of Women’s Studies or Gender Studies, Girlhood Studies does have a presence in academia although at this stage rarely in an autonomous department. This interest in the pedagogies and practices of teaching Girlhood Studies is an important aspect of its growth as a field of study at university level, at school, and outside of formal academic settings.

The Journal of American Culture -Theme Issue: Generations

updated: 
Tuesday, June 8, 2021 - 11:18am
Shay Rahm / JAC
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 1, 2021

Generational Studies is growing as an area of research as multiple generations now co-exist in the workforce. Each generational cohort brings with it diverse viewpoints and varied lived experiences—sometimes quite disparate of one another. Therefore, exploring these age cohorts potentially provides an opportunity to discuss and better understand the challenges of creating cohesiveness as well as discovering the interrelatedness of cultural experiences that have the potential to connect generations.

We welcome papers on topics related to America’s generations including: Baby Boomers, Generation Jones, Generation X, Xennials, Millennials (Gen Y), and iGen (Gen Z).

Journal of Science Fiction Special Issue on Young Adult Speculative Fiction

updated: 
Tuesday, June 8, 2021 - 11:18am
MOSF Journal of Science Fiction
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, August 1, 2021

Young adult (YA) speculative fiction routinely engages with many of life’s most important questions: love, death, relationships, the future of the planet, identity, belonging, and our very future as human beings. Whether styled after the classical bildungsroman or otherwise, coming of age narratives in the speculative genre encourage readers to challenge existing power structures and advocate self-expression and self-confidence. They also return agency to those often divested of power by the institutional and social structures that restrict freedoms based on age, and recenter the adolescent as a critical social figure.
