CFP: Class and Contemporary UK Film and Television. Virtual Conference 7 July 2022

Contemporary film and TV in the UK appear to offer at least three interrelated problems for the lower socio-economic classes. There is imbalance, exploitation, and precarity in the industry; perennial problems around representation; and the inculcation of neoliberal ideology antithetical to social justice and equality. This free virtual conference, held by London Metropolitan University on Thursday 7th July 2022, is an opportunity to reflect upon and react to this scenario. Presenters will be welcome to develop their papers for submission to a special double edition of the Journal of Class and Culture.

Ernest Veyu: Poetics of Textual Transactions

updated: 
Monday, January 10, 2022 - 3:09pm
Ken Scholars
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 31, 2022

Ken Scholars Publishing invites book chapters to be included in a forthcoming scholarly volume on intertextuality in the poetry of Ernest Veyu. 
As a postcolonial African (Cameroonian) poet, the texts of Veyu exhibit multiple layers of connection with a multitude of texts. The textual dialogues between Veyu's texts and the broad range of other texts reflect not just "the anxiety of influence" (Harold Bloom) but more profound symbiotic connections with cultures, movements and styles.
