Metaphors of Compilation

English Language Notes
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 1, 2024

This special issue of English Language Notes invites interdisciplinary perspectives on the poetic and metaphorical possibilities of compilation, a word both ubiquitous and lacking a single, agreed-upon meaning. From Latin compilatio (“a raking together, pillaging, plundering; hence, concr., sportively of a collection of documents, a compilation”), “compilation” can describe poetic composition, physical construction, and the artful orchestration of those domains by means of page-layout, indexing, and comparable readerly aids. Both action and result, compilation figures an object in terms at once material and literary.

This panel seeks 250-300 word abstracts exploring political and aesthetic questions across postbellum 19th and 20th century African American and Caribbean literature across a range of subjects including nonhuman animality, ecocriticism or ecopoetics, political ecology, and/or what Chelsea Frazier calls "black feminist ecological thought." Papers placing themselves in conversation with J.T. Roane's theorization of "black ecologies" in and/or beyond literature as well as those taking up Kimberly Ruffin's work on Black ecoliterary traditions are especially encouraged, but the call is open to the broadest sense of the concepts and terms listed above.

What is left of myths in contemporary arts and literature?

International Conference in Toulouse (France) - December 6-7, 2024

As founding narratives or idealized representations of historical figures, myths have, from time immemorial, tied humans together, creating communities that grow into organized societies. They have therefore become the safeguards of a vision of History that the arts and literature have ceaselessly spun into stories, in order to better transgress, deconstruct or simply revisit an ever-changing mythos. Contemporary stories reshape the contours of an all-too-often glorified past and they question our cultural heritage at the same time as rekindling it.

The Ruins of Empire: Postcolonial Hauntings

Wednesday, February 21, 2024 - 5:43am

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 19, 2024

The notion of ‘haunting’ connotes windswept houses tormented by ghosts and specters, forging a connection between an unresolved past, the troubled present, and imagined futures. With Derrida’s coinage of the French neologism l’hantologie (hauntology), the figure of the specter became a byword for the “disjunction in the presence of being” (Goellner 5), pointing to the conflicting connection between the present and the past. Indeed, “[i]nstead of demanding a distancing, the twists and turns of haunting manifest as a thinking against or after” (Blanco and Peeren 32).

Going to the Movies with C.S. Lewis, Call for Chapters

An edited collection tentatively titled “Going to the Movies with C.S. Lewis” is seeking chapter submissions. The book is expected to be published through Cambridge Scholars Publishing.  

Having been born many years after C.S. Lewis died I of course never had the opportunity to watch a movie with the man. However, over the years I feel, as many others probably feel as well, like Lewis accompanies me as I watch movies, read books, attend church services, and make other daily pursuits. Lewis’ works shape my thinking on many theological, educational, and cultural matters like few other authors’ works do.
