Call For Submissions – Creative Collection - Fears and Phobias – Sunderland Creative Press (University of Sunderland)

 

Tip-tap on your window, a nightmare comes to taunt you. It starts slowly, softly, building intensity through the dead of night. A thunderbolt of fright strikes through you; you tremble under the covers alone in the dark with creatures of the night, the perpetrators of your restless, anxiety-ridden slumber. Are you brave enough to explore fear a little closer? If you are, then we want to hear about which monsters lurk in your closet, and even the ones that hide under your bed and inside your head.

As Russia began its invasion of Ukraine earlier this year, we saw a massive outpouring of
support and statements of solidarity from different corners of the globe. This news brought
conflict to the fore of white, US- and Euro-centric consciousness in a way that Palestine,
Kashmir, Yemen, Somalia, Afghanistan, and Armenia had failed to do. This impulse to
selectively engage and empathize invites a careful consideration of which conflicts find space
and articulation in particular discourses and, perhaps more importantly, which do not. We invite
you to think with us on conflict - excavate the ways in which it challenges or reinforces

Interdisciplinary and critical displacement studies reader

updated: 
Wednesday, December 7, 2022 - 9:58am
Center for Refugee, Migrant, and Displacement Studies at Virginia Tech
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, January 1, 2022

Work in Displacement Studies lies at the intersection of numerous interdisciplinary fields, such as migration studies, refugee studies, border studies, Indigenous studies, Africana studies, Food Studies, coastal studies, human rights, urban studies, data studies and Latinx studies. Building on that body of literature and the NEH/SSRC working group on “Converging Displacements” at Virginia Tech, this reader takes a critical approach to displacement studies. Critical displacement studies is a methodology examining disruptions of displacement where community access and contribution is essential. An increasingly common experience, being uprooted from place occurs across a range of geographic and temporal scales.

Filibusters in Birmingham: a Conference on Wyndham Lewis

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, January 19, 2023

In his travelogue Filibusters in Barbary(1932), the modernist painter and writer Wyndham Lewis evoked the fantasy of being ‘thoroughly unanchored’ from London, from controversy, from recognizability: from his life as he lived it at the time, in effect. The fantasy compels not only because it’s a typically contrarian move made by an unapologetic contrarian, but also because it invites reflection on the very Lewisian problem of autonomy itself.
