Langston Hughes's long career spanned these two movements, with his first collection, The Weary Blues, appearing in 1926, and his final collection, The Panther and the Lash, appearing two months after his death in 1967. The Langston Hughes Society invites papers related to the decades between the New Negro and Black Arts Movements, or to artists who are not typically associated with those movements.

“Read anything I write for the pleasure of reading it. Whatever else you find will be the measure of what you brought to the reading” - Hemingway
In a world saturated with images in which audiovisual storytelling has dominated for decades shaping the aesthetics and expectations of the audience, and in which binge-consuming TV series on digital platforms and homemade videos on social media have become the trend of the last few years, it is quite unexpected to witness the reemergence of a storytelling that resists visual representation. Of course, audio storytelling is not new; Stories voiced for the ear to listen have been with us since early on, for as long as there have been stories to share. What has changed in recent years, whetting our story-listening appetite anew, are the computing technologies ever rapidly developed for audio production, distribution and reception.

Poetry has exploded off the page in recent decades, making a prominent home for itself in new semiotic and material environments. Poems circulate on subway systems, through platforms and apps, on placards at protests, in art museums, and the built environment. These poems, in turn, are composed in a variety of human and nonhuman languages, from Spanglish to mathematics, code to GPT-language models.

Messengers from the Stars:
On Science Fiction and Fantasy
No. 7, 2024
Guest Editor: Ana Daniela Coelho
Co-editor: Diana Marques
Messengers from the Stars is an international, peer-reviewed, open-access journal, offering academic articles, reviews, and providing an outlet for a wide range of creative work inspired by science fiction and fantasy. The 2023 issue will be dedicated to the following theme:
Adapting Fantasy and Sci-Fi in the Age of Streaming
What is the potential, liberatory or otherwise, of excess as a figure, motif, scene, or problem? Blake’s “road of excess” offers a counterpoint to an industrial-capitalistic ethos of productivity, frugality, and reason. Moreover, Bataille speaks of “excess” as a form of unproductive expenditure of energy under modernity. If “animatedness” (Ngai) operates as a racialized iteration of exaggerated affect, how does one read the overdetermined sentimentality of the lyric “I”? Lyric excess, then, invites an engagement with scenes of excess, or in other words exuberance, surplus, or waste, to rethink lyric poetry’s non-utilitarian possibilities in form and content.

Chapter proposals are invited from interdisciplinary scholars for a collection tentatively titled Recasting the Bygone Witch.
From Sabrina to Supreme, there are plentiful modern representations of the witch in popular culture, each exuding singular or group-sourced power borne from traditions of centuries-past, as manifested in literature, television, film, or local lore.
Modern Language Studies, the journal of the Northeast Modern Language Association, is seeking reviews for the winter 2023-2024 issue. In recent years, the temperature has risen around free speech debates, and books on censorship and free speech come out with such frequency that it is hard to keep abreast of the new scholarship. I am interested in receiving reviews and review essays on academic books published in the last several years that are in some way related to free speech. The books to be reviewed can center on any historical, geographical, or disciplinary context, and the reviews and review essays can be written from (almost) any theoretical perspective.
“NOT DISABLED, JUST DIFFERENTLY-ABLED” is the motto-title of this WORKSHOP as it is intended to raise awareness and help us change perspective not only of the way we perceive people with additional needs but of the way it may be faced with exclusion because of the lack of knowledge. As luck would have it, over the years, there has been a shift in the way society views people with special needs from "disabled" rather to "differently-abled". This is a comprehensive phrase that is used to promote a more inclusive and respectful approach to disability, highlighting the unique skills and refreshing perspectives that individuals withspecial needs bring to society.
