Global South: Incarceration and Resistance
In recent decades, research has repeatedly demonstrated the overrepresentation of boys and men in children’s media (tv and movies, literature, and games). This field of research has, justifiably, focused primarily on the impact of this inequality on girls and women and has grown to consider not only the quantity of representations but also their content.
CFP: Space, Place, and Locus: Mapping the New Europe (Online)
Conference Date: 2-4th June 2021
One year later, a “return to normal” remains the pandemic’s most enduring political promise, a token of hope to hedge against continued death and precarity. Held within this recursive promise, however, is a prima facie condition that deserves interrogation. What, exactly, is the “normal” to which we will return? Will capitalism and its attendant crises no longer demand our attention absent a continual state of emergency? The coherence and stability of the “normal” eludes us; Georges Canguilhem sees the normal as itself a chimeric category, one which, from the perspective of medicine and science, is not so distant from the “pathological” it is meant to foil.
This panel invites papers exploring new subjects and approaches in the field of cognitive literary studies and, especially, cognitive poetics. We are interested in investigations of both the formal and the cultural/historical convergence of literary and cognitive research. What poems, novels, stories, etc. could be newly read and understood with the aid of insights and frameworks borrowed from such disciplines as experimental psychology and neuroscience? But also, why is it that literary scholars can turn to cognitive theories as plausible hermeneutical models in the first place? Where does the resonance between the concerns of writers and scientists, which today we seem to take for granted, come from?
This is a call for roundtable participants for a proposed roundtable at the Modernist Studies Association annual meeting in Chicago. Papers accepted into the roundtable are not guaranteed to be accepted into the conference.

Cities of Sound: Podcasting as Public Texts, Media, and Performances
Much of the Western world has a rising problem with white nationalists. These white supremacists often co-opt fields like Classics, medievalism, and Norse mythology to support their racist ideologies—twisting these disciplines and repressing or ignoring evidence for the multicultural and multiracial realities of the ancient and medieval world. In terms of Classics, these distortions and appropriations have been documented by an emerging generation of scholars like Donna Zuckerberg, Dan-el Padilla Peralta, Curtis Dozier, Sarah Bond, and others. Ancient myth, literature, and symbols continue to pervade modern culture.

The English theatre culture from the early Restoration to the early 18th century witnessed a marked shift towards increased commercialization and popularization of theatre. Gone were the post-1660 close association with the court, royalist productions, and prominently elite (well-off and upper-class) audiences. Instead, the experimentation with new genres, opening of new theatres, and a growing differentiation of the theatre programme into mainpieces, entr’acte entertainments and afterpieces revolutionized the established cultural hierarchies of the period.

ABOUT CONFERENCE: 22-23 April 2021, ONLINE (via Zoom)Affects, emotions and perceptions have always been at the center of philosophical discussion. Yet the so called “Affective turn” in social studies and humanities is relatively a new phenomenon inspired by Deleuze and Guattari´s influential works among others. Affective turn challenges the still dominant representational approach in semiotics, discourse analysis and text analyses of all kind. Its goal is to overcome human exceptionalism together with the domination of the word-based language over the other forms of expression in the process of creating meaning and knowledge altogether.
