Intro

In recent years, there has been a flurry of new interest in the work of Mina Loy (1882-1966) resulting in a steady output of monographs, new translations, and republications that present Loy from increasingly diverse perspectives. As Sarah Hayden writes in the introduction to the republication of Insel (2014) ‘there have been many Loys; more are emerging’.

Rereading Elden Ring

updated: 
Tuesday, March 21, 2023 - 7:31pm
The University of Virginia Department of English Speakers’ Committee
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 7, 2023

With its massive world, open-ended quests, and near-limitless options for customization, Elden Ring––the most critically acclaimed video game of 2022––is designed to be replayed. But it is also a text that demands to be reread. Whether we study its environmental storytelling or the lore in item descriptions, the game’s fragmented narrative fuels exegeses that resemble the long history of Biblical interpretation, midcentury criticism of modernist enigmas like Ulysses, and hermeneutic fandoms surrounding popular culture like Twin Peaks. Its spatiotemporally disjunctive universe frustrates efforts to interpret its world “realistically” and prompts one to place it in dialogue with theories of unconventional space and time.

The MLA’s Forum on Psychology, Psychoanalysis and Literature solicits abstracts for a guaranteed panel at the January 2024 MLA Convention in Philadelphia on queer theory and psychoanalysis. We particularly welcome theoretical and archival scholarship that centers LGBTQI+ theorists, artists, intellectuals, and writers.

Queer theory embraces psychoanalysis and its speculative concepts as crucial elements of counter-identitarian critical practice. Yet the relationship between these two fields remains under-examined. Topics of particular interest include:

Call for Papers - Creature Redux: Considering the Pasts, Presents, and Futures of Chimera in Fiction and Popular Culture
Extended Deadline: April 21st, 2021 (4/21/23)

Animals are the quotidian absolute Other. They are not inherently horrifying, dangerous, or invasive; nor do they have designs to usurp or subjugate humanity. In his lecture-turned-book The Animal That Therefore I Am, Derrida critiques the use of the word “animal” to describe an almost limitless array of creatures. “Animal” becomes a catch-all term for everything that is otherwise than human–and not the biological entity, but a specific, constructed hegemonic entity.

While we sometimes feel like life is moving around us rather than with us, it is essential to take a moment and consider how we got where we are. Over time, attitudes, opinions, and feelings have shifted along with what we choose to carry with us. To avoid leaving important things behind or risk forgetting them altogether, it is time to ask ourselves why we leave certain things behind and what it means when we do.

Adaptation

Adaptation is a term that bridges the divide between literature and evolution. Texts are adapted to speak to new circumstances as time advances and younger writers, directors, actors, artists, and audiences seek connections to a mutable culture. Likewise, organisms adapt over generations to better suit their circumstance.

Mechanization and the Child

updated:

JOCPC: Journal of Children in Popular Culture
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, August 31, 2023

JOCPC is now accepting article submissions for the Fall 2023 issue focusing on the broad theme of the mechanized child. We have kept the theme open-ended and invite works across a wide range of disciplines where researchers are exploring representations of the intersection between the child figure, childhood and mechanization. This may include robotics, automatons, cyborgs, AI, VR, and other emerging technologies, both historical and future forward, real and fictional, and how these are used by, to, on and for children. Born alongside new and emerging technologies, children have an innate fluency with new technologies that often leave their adult counterparts behind, reinforcing the notion of children as symbols of futurity.

Histories of Earth Sciences:

visual and interdisciplinary approaches amid an environmental crisis

 

For decades now, the history of Earth sciences has been a ground for the development of interdisciplinary research. Historians and scientists from different disciplines have been contributing with methodologies coming from the history of institutions, art history, visual studies, material studies, geoscientific fields (such as integrating geoscientific iconography or retreating historical fieldwork), philosophy, gender studies, the history of literature, political and colonial histories, disciplinary histories, and history of fieldwork.
