updated:

Special issue of Humanities journal: Translating Health through the Humanities
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 20, 2022

As the COVID-19 pandemic exposed structural cracks in public health policies and health care systems around the globe, the humanities intensified arguments for their inclusion in health care, health education, policy development, and public health initiatives, citing, among other things, their existing work on cultural analysis, gender, race, and class, disease construction, illness narratives, the decoding of text, and perspective-taking. At the onset of the pandemic, humanities scholars from across the world quickly produced editorials and lecture series, arguing for, and demonstrating the value of, the humanities in responding to the global health crisis.

Non - A Journal of Alternative Sexualities in Literature and the Arts
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, May 31, 2022

Despite forming the basis for many cultural and political norms in the world today, sexuality is also that which resists easy normativity. In addition to agitating for change in the form of legal rights, critical thinking on non-conforming sexualities has also raised the question of sexuality itself as non-conformist. This latter strand of thinking allows us to think of sexuality as always having alternatives, and also being alternative to fixed forms of itself. This theorisation considers sexuality both from the political perspective from which it is often studied, and also from the perspective of literature and the arts.

The aftermath of societal and cultural traumas can be cause for growth, hope, change, and (r)evolution. The last two years have brought the world to such moments.

Carryin’ the Banner: Critical Essays on the Newsies Film and Broadway Adaptation

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, October 1, 2022

Newsies, both as a film in 1992 and a Broadway show in 2012, has been a sleeper hit for all of its existence. Disney wrote the film off as a failure when it took roughly $15 million to make and only grossed $2.8 million – and yet, the film found a wide, willing, and devoted audience through VHS rentals and Disney Channel showings. The Newsies Broadway show was originally intended to be a licensed adaptation for high schools and colleges - and yet, the built-in audience was so eager for a Broadway adaptation that Disney Theatrical Productions decided to make the gamble.

Beyond Nancy Drew: U.S. Girls’ Series Fiction in the Mid-Twentieth Century, 1920-1970

Friday, October 28, 2022

As the series heroine par excellence, Nancy Drew has taken up most of the scholarly attention surrounding mid-century U.S. girls’ series, and for good reason given her popularity, longevity, and feminist leanings. Running from 1930 into the present day, Nancy has been foiling criminals for nearly a century, first as a spunky blond driving a roadster and then as a versatile  titian-haired girl in a convertible.

Researching the Influence of Feminist Film Theory

on 21st Century Films and TV Series

               

 

A growing number of scholars have acknowledged how the works of feminist scholars and feminist film scholars have influenced filmmakers and screenwriters (Radner and Stringer 2011; Roche 2014 and 2018; Maury and Roche 2020). The objective of this collected volume is to pursue inquiry of cross-fertilization between (intersectional) feminist (film) theory and films and TV series,           produced in the English-speaking world of the 21st century.

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, August 1, 2022

This Roundtable discussion welcomes submissions on any aspect of pre-pandemic college classroom access, post-pandemic college classroom access, or policies implemented in college classrooms post-pandemic which could limit access. Abstracts addressing the conference theme are especially welcome.  Due to the pandemic, instructors have all felt the strain change placed on our classrooms. However, these changes have brought to light important aspects of access at the university level previously regulated to individual or case-by-case discussions. This roundtable seeks to generate a wider conversation about how instructors handle access in the classroom, and what has improved or hindered access.

Taking into account the presidential theme for MMLA, 2022--“Post-Now”--, it is important to foreground the constituency of 'now', and what its discursive urgency means for this panel. While 'now' can be ontologically considered as the transient nature of the present moment in time, which is relative in nature (Einstein 14), its association to time can also be extended to understand the persistence of circumstances and ideas as situated in the present age, or the contemporary times (Dubreuil 44). Laurent Dubreuil links literature to temporality, mentioning how “literature does not exist before but rather after itself: we reconstruct and designate it without exhausting its signification” (Dubreuil 45).
