CLASSIC HORROR - abstracts due April 25, 2022

2022 is the 90th anniversary of the numerous amazing classic horror films that were released in 1932, among them Freaks, Island of Lost Souls, The Most Dangerous Game, The Old Dark House, The Mummy, and White Zombie. To mark this anniversary, we are soliciting abstracts for a special 'journal' issue of the website Horror Homeroom on classic horror.  This special issue, which will come out in 2022, will certainly honor those films that have their anniversary this year, but we also want to broaden what classic horror looks like and are interested in essays that explore other national cinemas and lesser-known films.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 3, 2022

The Teaching Writing in College section welcomes all submissions but is particularly interested in those that consider writing instruction in relation to the conference theme of “Change.” By June 4, 2022 please submit and abstract of 300-500 words, a brief bio, and any A/V or scheduling requests to Lisa Diehl, Chairperson, at lisa.diehl@ung.edu. Teaching writing has always existed in the intersection of culture, identity, and expression. Writing instructors encourage their students to attend to style, voice, and other aesthetic elements of their text. Writing instructors also encourage their students to think of their work as socially situated and able to effect change in the “real world” outside of the classroom.

(MMLA 2022, Minneapolis) Trauma in the Age of Trauma

MMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 15, 2022

Recent essays and articles in publications like The Atlantic and Vox have voiced growing concerns about the increasing elasticity of “trauma.” Even so, those same texts note the value of recognizing others’ trauma and of responding ethically to their stories. This worth is particularly evident in the wake of the many Covid-related traumatic events and the most recent racial reckonings (that may or may not have occurred) in the US and around the world.

Totalitarianism & other radical ideologies as social phenomena have always been a scourge of societies big and small. The present time demands from academics and intellectuals to engage in a detailed analysis of what happens in the rhetoric of radical approaches, and in the deconstruction of its influence on the content and form in which it is delivered.

Kristin Prins, Kristin Ravel, and I are seeking chapters for an edited collection tentatively titled Feminist Design Rhetorics: Theories, Practices, and Pedagogies for Building Equity and Collective Justice.  We hope authors will explore questions such as: What are the roles of design, technologies, and rhetoric in furthering intersectional feminist activism? What impacts do intersectional approaches to design bring to our rhetorical theory, practice, and pedagogy? And how might we use a feminist design lens to make rhetorical choices that center accountability, equity, and social justice?

Contemporaries at Post45 

The Art of Drag (Racing): Reading The Fast and the Furious

Despite its outsized popular impact – which spans 20 years, 9 films, a chart-topping song and several viral memes – The Fast Saga remains under-studied. This call for papers invites sustained inquiry into these films for a collection in Post45’s Contemporaries forum, seeking to understand the implications of this series in and on the cultural imagination, especially given the questions posed by its notable divergence from the action film genre.

deadline for submissions:

Papers are sought from any period, any cultural form/genre, and from any critical perspective that investigate the way that science and culture have influenced, informed, and challenged one another, either within society more broadly or even within higher education. Projects from the medical humanities, environmental humanities, and/or digital humanities are relevant to this panel, as are other interdisciplinary fields at the intersections of science and the humanities. We are looking for papers that consider science and culture as lived human experiences, rather than speculative science fiction per se.

MLA Options for Teaching Series: Science Writing
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, June 15, 2022

As fans of the genre can attest, popular science writing belies the notion of “science” and “literature” as separate domains.  Bestselling science writers borrow freely from the techniques of fiction writers to craft compelling narratives, memorable examples, and evocative re-presentations of technical information.  Of course, scholars have long recognized the literariness of science writing: as pioneering work by Gillian Beer, George Levine, Devin Griffiths, Donna Haraway, and others attests, it is difficult to overestimate the historical traffic between science and literature.  Since the early modern era (if not earlier), writers and scientists have routinely traded metaphors, images, and conceptual frameworks.
