Configurations of Friday’s Body

A Special Issue of the Nordic Journal of English Studies

Ed. by Patrick Gill and Jakub Lipski

When Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe was published in 1719, it confronted readers with a newly developed realism expressed, among other things, through the detailed description of its characters’ worlds and bodies. The connection between mind and body or physical and spiritual world was more than allegorical to eighteenth-century readers: it represented a literal and immediate correspondence, so that discourses of the body in much eighteenth-century fiction can be read as material figurations of character.

Intersectionality in the Early Global World

Research on the premodern intersection of race, gender, and sexuality has steadily increased as a result of the efforts of a diverse group of scholars working across traditional periodization and geographic limits. Nevertheless, a great deal of work remains to be done to understand the many varieties of ways such aspects of identities intersected and were mobilized or challenged in the marking of difference.

CFP:Dark Academia: Definitions, Theories, and Prospects

updated: 
Tuesday, January 18, 2022 - 9:50am
Cody Jones-- NYU
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 1, 2022

We are seeking essays and papers for an edited collection which engages the concept of ‘dark academia.’ 

At the center of the dark academic sensibility lies a paradox: though dark academia enjoys the cosmetic trappings of the pursuit of higher knowledge, it is at its core a celebration of the university as a place of occultation and performativity. The dark academic’s taste for mystery, history, and a distinctly Anglophone, Romantico-Modernist canon – coupled with an equally distinct early 20th century sartorial and lifestyle model – runs inevitably into exclusivity, elitism, and reactionary nostalgia. Indeed, the case can be made that these very elements are in fact constitutive of dark academia, as such.

Sue Matheson / University College of the North
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, March 15, 2022

I am currently soliciting abstracts of 250 words for essays to be included in a book which will examine the richness and relevance of Mel Brooks’ body of work, from its beginnings in stand-up comedy and improvisation, the broad farce and parody for which Brooks is so well known, his forays into drama and his success on Broadway. I welcome proposals that foreground Brooks’ significant contributions to American culture and comedy. Proposals may examine an individual or a number of Brooks’ works, Brooks’ work as a comedian or a dramatist, and Brooks as a writer, actor, director, or producer of television, film or on Broadway.

What happens when the images come into the world? With or without its consent, civil society has been constantly imaged, recorded, documented, archived and exhibited. This omnipresence of images created, circulated, and displayed merits an analysis of the multiplicity of its forms and its roots.

Call for papers/articles
Derived from the Latin word littera which means “a letter of the alphabet,” literature has been predominantly associated with language, and has rarely been considered as intermedial. However, as recently underlined by researchers of intermediality, any form of communication involves all our senses, and so “[t]here are no purely visual, textual, or auditory media” (Bruhn & Schirrmacher 2021,p. 3).

Telling Life Stories: Ethos, Positionality, and Structures of Narrative


The reading and analysing of life stories offer multiple perspectives in understanding the self-reflexivity of authorial consciousness, the rhetorical/stylistic fashioning of ethos, and the fabulation/fictionality of narrative. Lived experiences, of the author as well as the reader, allow perception of meaning against the sedimented social, political, and cultural paradigms of the “master” or “grand narrative,” as Jean-François Lyotard puts in his seminal work, The Postmodern Condition (1979). The dialectic of human action and social reality within such narratives serves to map the interrelated progression of individuals and cultures throughout history.
