Turkey has a long tradition of reading, translating and staging William Shakespeare’s plays as part of the country’s modernisation process. Yet, this long tradition has remained relatively obscure for the majority of both Turkish and non-Turkish academic and non-academic circles.

St. Thomas University
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 1, 2024

I am in the process of reviewing essays for an edited volume, Mythological Equines in Literature, but a few contributors were unable to continue with the collection. Thus, I am looking for 2-3 more essays to round out the collection. Harry Potter, Legend, and Narnia are well covered. Please send an inquiry about the potential topic to ensure that it has not already been covered.

Essays should be roughly 5,000-7,000 words, Chicago-style with endnotes and a bibliography page.

Complete chapters will be due in August 2024.

Please send ideas, abstracts, and short biographical notes to Rachel L. Carazo at rachel.carazo@snhu.edu

 

Russell Crowe: His Films and Pop Cultural Impact

St. Thomas University
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 1, 2024

Russell Crowe’s talents were globally recognized in the early 2000s after he appeared in a slate of well-received films – L.A. Confidential, Gladiator, and A Beautiful Mind, among others – that earned him critical acclaim. Nevertheless, in the years following these productions, he has continued to be a part of numerous projects with international and creative appeal. Alongside his films are his associations with Roman soccer teams – established in Spera’s (2023) chapter in my recent volume on Gladiator (https://vernonpress.com/book/1213) – his social media presence, and his musical performances.

Academic workshop at the University of Tübingen, Germany

10-12 June 2024 (in person)

 

In an increasingly globalized world, where a combination of digital technologies and multiple possibilities for migration, as well as the unfortunate realities of regional conflicts and climate change, people are brought together not just across geographical but also socio-cultural barriers. Race, class, gender, and creed, among other factors, come into collusion and synchrony in the most stunning ways to produce more and more questions about the value and meaning of a human life. In this context, the question of authentic voice and its representation looms paramount and the writing of literature its biggest ally.

Money on the Left
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 31, 2027

We are pleased to invite contributions to Money on the Left: History, Theory, Practice. Money on the Left publishes peer-reviewed articles about monetary arrangements, knowledges, and cultures with the aim of promoting ecosocial justice. This open-access journal understands money creation as a situated political problem that constitutes societies. It moves away from claims that money is a scarce instrument of barter, an inherent (if necessary) evil, or the infamous commodity-form and toward actualizing money’s unrealized potentials to shape collective life in emancipatory ways.

Noted Marxist scholar, Kohei Saito in his book, Karl Marx’s Ecosocialism: Capital, Nature and the Unfinished Critique of Political Economy (2018) rightly pointed out that the evolution of society is in close correlation to the trajectory of the progress of technology. Drawing upon the principle of thermodynamics, another notable Marxist scholar, Amy E. Wendling argued in Karl Marx on Technology and Alienation (2009), that purpose of labour had undergone a radical transformation following the progression of technology, allowing for a re-valuation of all material objects. Hence, the use of labour for harnessing natural resources, chiefly for the purpose of sustenance of human life, had been deeply altered by technology.

The directors invite papers on a variety of topics related to Cather, readers, and reading, including but not limited to the following areas.

“In a time of destruction, create something”

Maxine Hong Kingston

This year, our theme is “The Resilience of Imagination.” Imagination intrinsically ties into stories and the creative work that creates the world and characters contained within said stories. Imagination does not limit itself just to writers though – anyone who creates or interacts with art relates to imagination. What does imagination mean in a story? How do you use imagination? What does it encompass?
