deadline for submissions:

This special issue of The Projector seeks submissions focused on contemporary community media as activist and aesthetic practices. In 2005, Kevin Howley described community media as “popular and strategic interventions into contemporary media culture committed to the democratization of media structures, forms, and practices.”[1] In revisiting this definition 15 years later, the holistic aim of this special issue is to interrogate shifts in various community media making environments brought about in the past decade.

A popular site such as ShortList https://www.shortlist.com/ offers lists of what it presents (without qualification) as the best movies of a decade or genre and the best shows to watch on streaming services. The site was first launched in 2010 as an adjunct to Shortlist, the free British weekly magazine designed for young professional men. After its print edition ended in 2018, shortlist.com ostensibly became a venue no longer aimed at white, upwardly mobile (British) men. Today, it presents itself as providing a “new way of ordering your world and helping you find the best of everything [in] entertainment, tech, style, home, health & fitness and food.”

European Shakepeare Research Association Conference 2021

3-6 June 2021, Athens, Greece

Call for Seminar Papers: Shakespeare in Second and Foreign Language Learning

From text to classroom, at all skill and grade levels, and in every medium and format, Shakespeare appears in textbooks and curricula around the world. Educators choose Shakespeare across languages and with recourse to diverse media, encouraged by student recognition of cultural references, images, and quotations which generate a valuable touchstone for teaching literature and theatre, and from there lead to developing critical thinking, artistic expression, language, and communication skills.

Tradition and Innovation in Ezra Pound's Modernist Circle

Monday, September 28, 2020

Ezra Pound’s role in modernism is undeniable, but his connections to Philadelphia may be less obvious and are worthy of exploration. He spent his formative years in this “birthplace of America,” where his father worked at the U.S. Mint. Among the many artists he befriended in Philadelphia were fellow poets who would become modernists: Hilda Doolittle (H.D.), Marianne Moore, and William Carlos Williams. Pound’s relationship with Philadelphia institution University of Pennsylvania is a tumultuous one. Having earned his master’s degree, he was “pushed out” of the program, and his efforts to get a PhD were denied by the university, including many recent efforts to award him a posthumous PhD. This remains another source of controversy in Pound studies.

Images of the Mafia

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

Call for Roundtable Participants

This roundtable will illustrate how the image of the mafia has been romanticized, falsified, glorified, or held up to historical accuracy in film, television or literature.

The image of the mafia and how it has been appropriated into cultural studies as a romantic business where loyalty and friendship drive a way of life, has contorted our view of its reality. The many images of the mafia we see ranging from filmic representations of the good-hearted mafia Don like Vito Corleone to the fun-loving, soldier like Henry Hill to the flawed but honorable aging Junior Soprano help situate an idea of what it means to be part of this thing called the mafia.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream in Subversive Performance: essay cluster

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, August 31, 2020

In a brief survey of four 2016 A Midsummer Night’s Dream productions, Katherine Brokaw remarked that, this is, “perhaps of all Shakespeare’s plays, the one that most tempts radical and experimental interpretation. It is at once familiar and other” (Shakespeare Bulletin 35.1, 2017, pp. 148-156). Indeed, A Midsummer Night’s Dream has often been interpreted as a benevolent, cheerful story with airy, glittering fairies, well-meaning mechanicals, and lush natural settings, ending with a vision of natural harmony and social order.

[ Context: Big Data & Society has issued a call for Special Theme Proposals. I will be proposing “Divisive Data” as a special theme. This initial call is to gather a list of interested contributors, along with titles and abstracts of articles, to submit to BD&S. ]

The promise of the internet was a promise of connection. Networked technologies would erase the physical and cultural space that separated us. Digital communications would unite us like never before. Online platforms would “bring the world closer together” (Zuckerberg 2017). Communication technologies would collapse boundaries, encourage dialogue, and facilitate mutual understanding.

deadline for submissions:

ICNOVA book collection - a Portuguese editor - prepares an electronic book that gathers some of the texts presented at the Images & Archives seminar in 2019. The proposal intends to deepen the relationships between historical, artistic, anthropological and cultural research on photographs and films preserved in archives, both public and private. The documentary features of these images, their contexts and forms of re-contextualization, exhibition and display, the multiple histories with which they relate and the power relationships that produced and are reproduced by them are among the themes we wish to address, in the context of the "material turn" in the social sciences and the arts.
