To find a point of intersection between the realms of fashion and psychoanalysis, we should first try to define what exactly is fashion. As an expression of creativity, fashion could serve as a medium to canalize the inner life of the individuum, which is a concept that evokes the notion of the subconscious. Some artists and designers have already undergone an exploration of this field of work, Dalí and Schiaparelli being the most relevant case among them. Despite its clear connection with the principles of the surrealist movement, which generates its creativity precisely from the shadows of the human psyche, fashion articulates its imagery in highly symbolized language.

A new book series has been established by Routledge, with a focus on popular culture. 

The Routledge Advances in Popular Culture Studies series is looking for original and interdisciplinary monographs or edited volumes, which expand our understanding of popular culture as reflecting world challenges, contexts, and situations. The Series places a particular emphasis on evolutions and transformations within popular culture — with a focus on icons, narratives, practices, and identities — and aims to provide interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, and transmedia perspectives.

The editor of the series welcomes proposals for projects on a wide range of topics, including (but not limited to):

"There Will Be Poems": Depictions of Masculinity and Care in Modern Media

updated: 
Monday, August 9, 2021 - 1:42pm
NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

The title for this session is taken from the AMC series The Terror, in which an older man is heartbroken as he stands by the bed of his dying captain. “It was an honor serving you, sir. You are a good man. There will be poems,” he assures him (The Terror Episode 9). His grief and his care are portrayed sincerely and not as an indication of a lack of masculinity or courage. His desire to create poems for a beloved dying man is not pathologized and instead represents a strength of character. This year, NEMLA asks us to consider the theme of care, and our vulnerabilities and interdependence on each other.

Eating Feeling: Food, Affect, and “Other” Communities in Medieval Literature (ICMS 2022 Kalamazoo; online)

Wednesday, September 15, 2021

Medieval archives abound with accounts of food-related practices and encounters, with acute attention paid to the food habits of “others” (neighbors, foreigners, pagans) and the impact of communal eating in various social spaces. This session explores the rich intersections of food, affect, and communal identity in the medieval period. We especially welcome contributions that engage with affective responses to the food cultures of “others,” paralleled in the COVID-19 era by the Western world’s alarm at “exotic” foodstuffs, or contributions that focus on sociocultural practices (such as eating together or sharing dishes) long taken for granted but recently destabilized due to the effects of the pandemic.

NeMLA 2022 -- Roundtable -- New Directions in Feminist Pedagogy

This roundtable asks participants to engage with and present the new directions in feminist pedagogy that inevitably emerged in the past two years (2020-2022) during the coronavirus pandemic, but also beyond it. In the words of Kevin M. Gannon in the book Radical Hope: A Teaching Manifesto, “Teaching is a radical act of hope. It is an assertion of faith in a better future in an increasingly uncertain and fraught present. It is a commitment to that future even if we can’t clearly discern its shape. It is a continuing pedagogical practice rather than a set of static characteristics” (5). Grounded in feminism, this roundtable asks participants to present their innovations in pedagogy across a spectrum of challenges.

NeMLA Panel: Resonating Voices from the French Early Modern Period

Thursday, September 30, 2021

When reading a text, the reader is often confronted with the issue of voice. Who is speaking? Is it an affirmed voice or, on the contrary, a discreet voice? Is it a single or a collective voice? Voice is polymorphous and can take several aspects in the text: speech, shout, whispering, song. The reader must constantly keep in mind these interactions between voice, writing, and silence. In the Early Modern Period, voice can took many forms; In Montaigne’s Essais, we find occurrences of the term “voice” to designate both “word” and “speaking.” In La Rhétorique Française, Fouquelin refers to voice to talk about pronunciation.

C19: The Society for Nineteenth-Century Americanists
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 3, 2021

On July 4, 1826, Robert Owen delivered an oration that would go on to be known as the “Declaration of Mental Independence” in which he situated an ideology animating his experimental society in New Harmony, Indiana within an existing tradition of American liberty. Communal societies seek to reconstruct society in miniature, though in the 19th century several of these experiments ultimately aspired to reshape society on a grand scale.

We seek essays that explore 19th century American communitarian experiments as revisions, renewals, and reconstructions of existing institutions, cultures, and mores. Essays may explore:

  • tensions between the public and private in intentional communities

Searching for Truth in Documentary Storytelling Online Workshop

updated: 
Monday, August 9, 2021 - 1:39pm
London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 31, 2021

The documentary film is a non-fictional motion picture that shapes and interprets factual material; the intent is to capture "reality" with a view to inform, educate, entertain, or maintain a historical record. Documentaries have contributed to the development of realism in movies; the style has been influential from the earliest days of filmmaking. Critic and theoretician Bill Nichols has characterised it as "a practice, a cinematic tradition, and a mode of audience reception that remains without clear boundaries".

"Fashion, Body and Culture" International Conference

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, November 1, 2021

Applying diverse methods from across subject disciplines the conference will explore fashion and style in wide-ranging contexts. It will examine connections between fashion, body and culture and will focus on dress, cosmetics, coiffure and body alterations (piercing, tattooing, circumcision, aesthetic surgery, etc). 

How does our dress or hair style create our identity and status? How is it concerned with sexual and body politics? Is the desire to be "in fashion" universal or unique to Western culture? These and other questions we set out to discuss at the conference.

Papers are invited on topics related, but not limited, to:

Thursday, September 30, 2021

Nowadays we live and breathe media, minute-by-minute, hour-by-hour. News, television, social media, celebrity culture, music, and more. As the media and communication sector becomes ever more diverse and dynamic, and we are going to consume it, we also need to understand it.

Today, the new bio-technical forms of life produced by mainstream digital media and by a whole range of artistic and non-artistic practices confront us with unprecedented theoretical questions, which can be dealt with by combining profound and perplexing perspectives. We need appropriate theoretical frameworks in order to understand the phenomena.

Fear and Loathing at 50: Five Decades of Hunter S. Thompson and Gonzo Journalism

2022 marks a significant anniversary for the celebrated — and divisive — work of Hunter S. Thompson.  His seminal Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas celebrates fifty years since its publication in book form, as do the dispatches from the George McGovern campaign that would later become Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail ’72.  This panel aims to reexamine Thompson’s body of work and the refractions of his presence as a cultural signifier in popular conception, as well as to consider the viability of the Gonzo form and style as something that could survive — and evolve beyond — its virtually metonymic association with Thompson.
