Reading HBO’s Euphoria - Edited Collection

 

In recent years, there has been no more controversial TV series than HBO’s Euphoria. Adapted from an Israeli production by the same name, by Sam Levinson, its explicit portrayal of Gen Z addiction, sexual violence, and identity crisis has attracted cult devotion and open-mouthed condemnation. The furore around Euphoria’s portrayals of heroin, nudity and mental health have obscured just how complex a take on our culture this high school drama really is. Peek behind the social-media-mirroring of its tone, and you find a work of deep sophistication.

Disability in the Global Middle Ages

updated: 
Thursday, September 22, 2022 - 12:32pm
Society for the Study of Disability in the Middle Ages
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 15, 2022

Since its emergence, medieval disability studies has asked questions about the meanings of disability in the Middle Ages, the lived experiences of people with disabilities, and how scholars can apply the frameworks of disability studies to medieval texts. Although these questions have led to insightful and field-changing scholarship, much of this work centers the Western tradition. In order to explore a broader and more accurate view of disability in the global Middle Ages, we ask these same questions but with a focus on non-Western texts. This panel seeks presentations on any aspect of disability in the global Middle Ages, and we welcome submissions from across disciplines, including literature, art, history, religion, and philosophy.

Present Futures

 

The present is great with the future.

—Gottfried Leibniz, 1703

 

In times when the present seems to be facing an imminent – and immanent – crisis, we want to take a step forward and investigate how various concepts and imaginaries of the future can be made fruitful for the present. The 15th issue of On_Culture seeks to explore forms of present futures – futures that manifest in the present and a/effect it – to provide new approaches and critical perspectives to thinking about the future in the study of culture.

Essay on Sexuality in Medieval North Africa

updated: 
Thursday, September 22, 2022 - 9:36am
Michelle M. Sauer
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, November 1, 2022

I am editing the Companion to Sexuality of the Medieval West with Jenny Bledsoe for Arc Humanities. The projected publication date is early 2024. This volume is intended to be an update of the classical Bullough and Brundage volume, with a more inclusive approach.

We are looking someone to write on North Africa. The deadline for submission can be somewhat negotiable, but May 2023 would be ideal. The essay should 6,000-6,500 words, and use a broad approach rather than a specific argument (e.g., handbook style). Chicago style citations as appropriate. Use of images possible as well. All essays peer reviewed.

Please contact me for further details and/or with questions.

Big Feminism: The Fiftieth Anniversary Issue of Signs

updated: 
Wednesday, September 21, 2022 - 11:21am
Signs
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 1, 2023

Signs was founded in 1975 as part of an emergent tradition of feminist scholarship and has been publishing continuously ever since, establishing itself as a preeminent journal in the field of women’s, gender, and sexuality studies. At the time of the journal’s conception, Signs’s founding editorial staff sought not only to raise consciousness and develop theories around women’s oppression but also to challenge the taken-for-granted and to strive for theoretical nuance and interdisciplinarity. To honor half a century of publication, our fiftieth anniversary issue aims to generate new questions and critical discussion around “Big Feminism,” around the role and power of feminist theory, today and into the future.

Anxious and Precarious: Entanglements of Affect and Labor in Contemporary Culture (31.10.2022)

updated: 
Wednesday, September 21, 2022 - 7:52am
Leiden University / KU Leuven
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 31, 2022

As the pandemic has made it palpable, anxieties can turn into pervasive affects with detrimental effects on the psychological well-being of the individual. To be anxious is to be on edge, not only psychologically, but also ontologically and existentially; or to use Heidegger’s terms, it is to be in a state of “groundless floating” (1996).
