CALL FOR BOOK CHAPTER PROPOSALS

We’re seeking chapter-length contributions to an edited volume on politics and the Western. The working title for this project is A Fistful of Politics: The Western and Political Thought. We’re anticipating that much of our collection will deal with Western films, but we’re open to—and excited about—contributions that discuss anything within the Western genre (prose fiction, films, television series, comics, poetry, video games, theater, music, etc.) in connection with politics and political thought.

Journal of Literary Multilingualism
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 15, 2022

Literary multilingualism studies is a relatively new but burgeoning area of research. With the impact of translation studies, the ‘transnational turn’ within literary studies, and the growing relevance of the ‘postmonolingual condition’ in the contemporary world, multilingual and translingual writing practices – considered in the past to be exceptional and unusual – are now at the forefront of literary studies.

"Queerness and the body: the effects of Pandemic"

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 15, 2021

The 2022 Call for the Queer Caucus is centering on topics surrounding queerness and the body: the effects of the Pandemic. The call wants to ask questions like "How has the queer community experience the devastating and last effects that have arisen out of pandemics?" "What happens with the lost of queer geography?" This call also seeks papers that explore how the queer community has continued to find creative ways to maintain communities, connections, and support when their physical spaces, their livelihoods, and their health have been threathened. How do you find community, other queer bodies? The recent closure of gay bars has also taken a toll and what does this mean for the future?

Networks of Song and Story: Convent and Community in Medieval France

updated: 
Friday, September 10, 2021 - 1:22pm
A Special Session at ICMS, Kalamazoo 2022
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 15, 2021

This session adopts an interdisciplinary approach to women’s communities centered at French religious houses, and interprets creative, devotional, and other kinds of output inspired by these institutional contexts. How did music, art, liturgies, and literature figure in representations and articulations of these women’s voices? We consider how such works created networks among writers, readers, and performers, and we investigate how convents, functioning as inspiration and narrative loci, shaped lyric and text. We aim to newly demonstrate how particular institutional contexts framed gendered expression and communal life, and how particular works reflected and fashioned women’s voices, within and beyond convent walls.

International Conference: "The Aesthetics of Decay: Creative Modes of Destruction"

London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, November 1, 2021

Decay as a state of nature is inevitable, yet it is something that could be at least postponed: decay in art as the main decadent idea has been on the cultural front row long enough to make certain conclusions about its essential characteristics. Decay as a philosophical issue is much more complex than its natural incarnation: French Symbolists and, later, fin de siecle authors regarded decay as an inseparable part of any type of cultural cognition. Its original interpretations can be found in the ideas of Schopenhauer, Hartmann, Nietzsche, Wagner, Bergson's intuitivism, modern scientific discoveries and folklore. The art of decay feels the need to justify its aesthetic principles, to explain to the public audience its goals and tasks.

Italian Western: From Revolution to De-contextualizing the Mythology of the American Genre

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

This panel seeks original contributions to the study of the Italian Spaghetti Western, its filmmakers, and their production through perspectives such as Feminist theory, Men’s Studies and Queer Studies, (De-)Coloniality, and Auteur Theory. Politics, the Mexican Revolution, the invention of an American Civilization through the experience of the Wilderness, and Western Symbolism are lenses that can be applied to the analysis. Original approaches that emerge from a specific ideology and/or iconography are also welcome. Particular attention will be given to those papers that examine how the Italian Spaghetti Western satirizes both American and Italian cultures through the representation of a world destabilized by violence and death.

Over the course of the 20th century and into the 21st, cinema, television, and related media have become increasingly central both to individual lives and to the lives of peoples, groups, and nations. Cinema has become a major form of cultural expression and films both reflect and influence the attitudes and behaviour of people, representing their tensions and anxieties, hopes and desires and incarnating social and cultural determinants of the era in which they were made.

Embodied Rhetorics in the long Eighteenth Century (Roundtable)

ASECS (American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 17, 2021

Where and why do we find examples of “embodied rhetoric” in the eighteenth century? We might think of Defoe’s description of Friday’s gesture placing his head beneath Robinson Crusoe’s foot signifying voluntary servitude and its relation to the supplicating figure of “Am I not a Man and a Brother” emblem, memoralized by Wedgewood. Or we might consider Trim’s gesture with his hat in Tristram Shandy describing how we pass from life to death, and onwards to Gilbert Austin’s Chironomia as a handbook for speaking gesture (building upon Bulwer’s Chirologia) as figures for something like “embodied rhetoric” or an emphasis on gesture and persuasive or signifying postures.

Supporting Women Writers: Coteries as Feminist Praxis (Roundtable at ASECS Annual Conference, March 31-April 2, 2022, Baltimore, MD)

Eliza Haywood represents The Female Spectator as part of a coterie that acts as “several Members of one Body, of which [she is] the mouth.” Through this writing club, Haywood encapsulates the important role that such coteries played in circulating women’s writing in the long eighteenth century. Lady Mary Wortley Montagu circulated her travel writing for feedback in a letter-book within a close circle of friends and family members. This correspondence between women represented an opportunity to share work in a safe space. Co-writing groups remain a safe space and an essential resource for women to share work today.

Dirty London

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

Abstracts for 15-17 min. papers sought for NeMLA 2022 on the topic of "Dirty London." Even before industrialization, London was a dirty city. The Victorians brought the Sanitary Acts, which improved health conditions, but my use of the word "dirty" applies to not just those aspects of sanitation, but also treatment of sexuality in, for instance, My Secret Life, and other publications explored so well by Steven Marcus in The Other Victorians. The "Sanitary Aesthetic" is obvious in works by such authors as Wilkie Collins, George Gissing, Charles Dickens, and Elizabeth Gaskell.
