This collection serves to extend current conversations of games studies beyond the existing, status quo of postmodern influenced discourses through offering an integrated, multiperspectival approach that emphasizes the production, consumption, and formal analysis of interactive digital games.

Post secondary teaching institutions are increasingly called upon to provide innovative, transformative learning experiences for diverse student populations. One of the ways in which educators in writing-intensive courses may facilitate accessible, student-centered lessons is through the interrogation of high-interest fantasy literature. This edited essay collection will investigate ways in which fantasy literature in various print and visual media is a pivotal pedagogical tool that enhances, complicates, and reinvisions college composition instruction and student experience. Contributing chapters by faculty of color, scholars who are members of marginalized populations, and community college faculty are especially sought.

Resilience and Collective Action Versus the Empowered Neoliberal Self 

[A Panel at NeMLA 2023, Niagra Falls, NY: March 23-26, 2023]

Public and private life in the 21st Century hurts. Our daily doomscroll informs us that our sense of belonging in the world, our values as scholars are fading away from the larger public discourse. Mark Fisher’s notion of “the slow cancellation of the future” echoes a collective feeling that doing just about anything is an act of tremendous resilience. The question is how does resilience echo neoliberalism or reject it?

Narrative representations of migration can be more overtly symbolic or, perhaps, non-literal or metaphorical insofar as origin and destination are not strictly spatial or geographical categories, but, rather, categories of an ontological dimension such as identity. While migrations of identity, for example, entail the crossing of metaphorical borders, this panel wishes to explore how they also include a spatial dimension, insofar as they are articulated through spatial difference, across literal as well as symbolic boundaries and borders. Conversely, “literal,” that is to say, conventionally spatial migrations are (always?) themselves imbricated with symbolic migration, even when not explicitly thematized as such.

University of Fribourg (Switzerland), 5–6 May 2023

This two-day conference will explore the notions of trust and uncertainty in linguistics and literary studies. Trust and certainty are crucial aspects of knowledge and its production, covering/in relation with a range of phenomena among which authority, authenticity, faith, evidence, manipulation, and falseness. Following the COVID-19 pandemic crisis, many of these aspects – information and misinformation, the role of the expert, conspiracy theories – have gained acute prominence. However, this conference will draw much wider circles, taking into account historical developments and diverse aesthetic approaches to these topics.

SPECIAL ISSUE INFORMATION

It’s a statistic we hear often: the United States incarcerates more people per capita than any other nation. Yet, many U.S. Americans can go about their daily lives without thinking about their physical proximity to prisons or the people locked within. Prisons have become increasingly removed to rural, remote areas, set back from main highways, not visible from shopping centers, restaurants, and housing developments. Likewise, the U.S. political landscape works hard to obfuscate the realities of life locked up, reducing mass incarceration to shocking statistics. However, prisons remain hidden in plain sight, coming to life in American literature and film.

For people of Latin America and the Caribbean, centuries of modernity/coloniality have resulted in continuous and compounding traumas that demand resilience. Yet, when we talk of resilience, are we ever naturalizing trauma and legitimizing the status quo, accepting that the way to be of oppressed peoples must always be in response to abusive conditions? Is it not possible that in focusing on resilience, we enable the continuation of unequal power structures by putting pressure on the oppressed to learn to adapt to what hurts us, rather than putting pressure on the world to destroy oppressive systems including racism, patriarchy, and capitalism? Instead of focusing on resilience, we should be imagining and enacting ways of being otherwise.
