Ernest Veyu: Poetics of Textual Transactions

updated: 
Monday, January 10, 2022 - 3:09pm
Ken Scholars
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 31, 2022

Ken Scholars Publishing invites book chapters to be included in a forthcoming scholarly volume on intertextuality in the poetry of Ernest Veyu. 
As a postcolonial African (Cameroonian) poet, the texts of Veyu exhibit multiple layers of connection with a multitude of texts. The textual dialogues between Veyu's texts and the broad range of other texts reflect not just "the anxiety of influence" (Harold Bloom) but more profound symbiotic connections with cultures, movements and styles.

CFP:  Precarity in Performance in the Early Global South

If New Orleans and the greater Atlantic world have been characterized by recurrent states of emergency and endemic oppression and hardship, it has also produced profound cultural invention and innovation, particularly in its wide array of performance cultures.  “Precarity,” as this panel imagines it, invokes the vulnerability of living at sea level in an age of rising sea levels, but we also use the term to invoke the resourceful responses that shore up the region’s carefully constructed and balanced lives.

Gender & Sexuality on the High Seas | 2022 ASA

updated: 
Monday, January 10, 2022 - 2:59pm
American Studies Association (ASA) 2022 meeting
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 23, 2022

The theme of the 2022 meeting poses that “the roof is on fire” and the water is rising, but perhaps this very water provides respite from the confines of our social roles. This panel explores open water as liminal space with its loosely defined—or absent—borders facilitating broader self-expression for the people working, serving, and living upon it. We call for scholarship examining ways in which contemporaneous boundaries of gender and sexuality have been expanded, rejected, and/or pantomimed on the high seas, ranging from the expression of 18th century pirates to 19th century whalers to 20th century naval officers.

Life-history approach occupies the central place in conducting and producing  (auto)biographical and (auto)ethnographic studies through the understanding of self, other, and culture.

Food is a basic foundation of culture and society, it is vital to our health and well-being and it plays a significant role in our everyday creative engagement with nature. The shifts in activities surrounding food acquisition, preparation and consumption are not only essential for learning a culinary tradition but for examining a broader societal change.

This conference will explore food as a complex cultural product, an indicator of social, religious and political identity. It will focus on people's relationship with food and discuss how food choices are determined by historical period, region, class, gender, kinship and/or ethnicity.

How Things Will Go: Genre and Infrastructure in the Environmental Humanities (ASAP/13)

updated: 
Sunday, January 9, 2022 - 5:48pm
Rebecca Oh, ASAP/13 (Association for the Study of the Arts of the Present)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, February 5, 2022

Genre and infrastructure are both structuring forms that shape how things will go. Generic narrative worlds shape emplotment, likely or unlikely events, types of characters, in/appropriate actions, and readerly expectations; genre organizes both narrative elements and the relations between them by creating frames and edges through which to interpret the world. Likewise, infrastructures organize things and the relations between them, whether by enabling or blocking the movement of people and objects. They constrain or facilitate uses and perceptions. This seminar will consider the affordances of genre for infrastructure and of infrastructure for genre, asking how these structuring forms are being taken up in the environmental humanities.

Hotels & Crisis: Historical and Cultural Perspectives (Deadline extended)

25-26 June 2022

London, UK

Scholars exploring histories and stories of hotels have identified many ways in which they have been actively embroiled within civil conflicts. They are sites of violence and of refuge. They are communication and command centres. They are also sites for diplomacy which aims to bring conflict to an end. Hotels have often been ‘soft’ targets in conflicts, because of their high level of openness compared to other institutions. Potent symbolisms and distinctive affordances have made hotels significant shapers of conflict.

The Children and Youth Studies Caucus invites participants examining children’s experiences of and responses to climate change. Our discussion may address the following questions:

-What is the role of the child within climate change movements?

-How do young people articulate climate crisis, imagine and enact environmental change or simply survive a changing world?

-How are the young people of New Orleans and Louisiana addressing climate crisis and environmental disaster?

-Transnationally, what strategies of survival and change are children and young people enacting in their communities?

80 Years and Beyond: The Past, Present, and Future of Canadian Comics

Canadian Literature
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 31, 2022

The Canadian Parliament passed the War Exchange Conservation Act (WECA) late in 1940 to preserve its currency for the war effort by limiting the importation of nonessential goods. Periodicals, including popular American comic books, were one casualty. Within a few months, Canadian artists and entrepreneurs responded by launching a domestic comic book industry often regarded as Canada’s golden age of comics. This industry produced four publishing companies and six years of original Canadian comics production, including Robin Hood Comics and Triumph-Adventure Comics, which featured Adrian Dingle’s Nelvana of the Northern Lights, one of the earliest female superheroes in comics.

Critical Race Theory in 2022 - Deadline in 3 weeks!

updated: 
Friday, January 7, 2022 - 2:30pm
Journal of Critical Race Inquiry
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 31, 2021

This special issue of the Journal for Critical Race Inquiry aims to theorize, historicize, and challenge contemporary misreadings of and antagonisms toward Critical Race Theory. Last summer, an attack on Critical Race Theory was launched in a series of articles in the conservative magazine City Journal. The attack gained momentum when the articles’ author appeared on the Tucker Carlson show and drew the attention of then-President Trump. “Critical Race Theory” came to signify and conflate everything from diversity training and employment equity to critical thinking about white privilege or the history of racism and colonialism in the United States to campaigns to defund the police.

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, February 15, 2022

We invite prospective contributions for the forthcoming Routledge Companion to Cultural Texts and the Nation, an exciting new addition to the growing, dynamic book series

 

Despite robust discourse on globalization and a perhaps momentary preoccupation with post-nationalism toward the end of the 20th century, nation and nationalism continue their tenacious hold on our imaginations—a hold that, given the state of global politics, surely deserves further and renewed explanation, unpacking, and critique.
