Centering Blackness in Fan Studies **DEADLINE EXTENDED**

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, July 1, 2023

This special issue centers Blackness in fandom studies. Fandom studies has gestured toward race generally, and Blackness in particular, from its alleged white center while always keeping race at its margin. It has largely co-opted the language of race, difference, and diversity from the margins and recentered it around white geeks and white women. Indeed, fandom studies has done lots of things—except deal with its race problem. But as Toni Morrison (1975) asserts, that is the work of racism: it keeps those at the margins busy, trying to prove that they deserve a seat at the center table.

Global Complicities

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, January 24, 2023

Complicity rhetoric is frequently adopted in public and political discourse. For example, Joe Biden has repeatedly used the formulation ‘silence is complicity’ as a call for the defence of human rights. Yet, in an ever more interconnected and globalised world, identifying and tracing the often complex relationships of cause and effect that comprise complicity is more and more difficult. The notion of collective complicity seems to be increasingly applicable to phenomena that define the contemporary world, such as the effects of global capitalism and the climate emergency (and has been elaborated, for example, by Christopher Kutz in Complicity: Ethics and Law for a Collective Age (2000)).

“Whenever we try to envision a world without war, without violence, without prisons, without capitalism,” writes Walidah Imarisha, “we are engaging in speculative fiction. All organizing is science fiction.” This panel seeks to bring together critics probing historical, present, and possible future relationships between speculative fiction and social justice. The emergent concept of “visionary fiction,” developed by Imarisha and adrienne maree brown, articulates radical and generative connections between speculation and social movement work.

The topic is therefore open, but possible approaches might include:

Hungarian Studies Yearbook is the latest intellectual venture of the Hungarian community from the Faculty of Letters at the Babeș-Bolyai University. The launch of this new platform comes after a long preparation and seems to be a natural and logical outcome both of the rich glocal scholarly traditions and the substantial impact this community had in Hungarian studies in the last decades.

Friday, January 20, 2023

Poetry is a constant, being produced by all known civilisations from ancient to modern times. Throughout its extensive history, the individual art of high emotions sublimated into perfect language has approached a vast array of subject matters, including love, war, social issues, the beauty of nature, etc. A particular exercise of the mind and soul, and a unique way of apprehending reality, poetry is a self-sufficient universe that intensifies and enlarges life experience. Pointing to inner knowledge rather than real circumstance, it activates different layers of perception, sweeps away human thoughts, feeds emotions and soothes suffering.

Dante's Trasumanar and Monsters - CAIS 2023 Session Proposal

updated: 
Wednesday, January 11, 2023 - 4:41pm
Chiara Caputi, The Graduate Center CUNY
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 1, 2023

Dante Alighieri expressed the transcendence of the human condition beyond its limitations through the verb trasumanar in Paradiso 1. It is rare evidence that Alighieri had thought of a kind of "transhuman" change in the early 1300s. In the past years, we witnessed the change raised by the feminist movements, especially the last wave called ''transfeminism'', which pointed out how ''being human'' it is not enough for the subjectivities in order to be recognized by politics. For this reason, the word ''posthuman'' was used to show how monsters can be active participants in our society, being part of us.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 30, 2023

Discussions around reproduction in the contemporary era have usually been bound up with debates around abortion rights and pro-life/pro-choice campaigns. From the UK’s proposals to create buffer zones at abortion clinics to prevent protests, to increased legalisation of abortion rights in several Latin American countries over recent years. Yet the conflict between continued restrictions in some countries and the relaxing of abortion laws in others continue to dominate the debate.
