Verge: Studies in Global Asias Issue 11.2

Special Issue: The Asian Century: Idea, Method, and Media

Edited by Christopher T. Fan, Paul Nadal, Ragini Tharoor Srinivasan, and Tina Chen

Deadlines | Essays: May 1, 2024

What is the Asian Century? Are we living in it? Do its recent invocations—by writers and readers, politicians and pundits, journalists and academics—mark a return to earlier eras of relative Asian centrality on the world stage or announce a future we have yet to inhabit? Is it a paranoid, U.S.-centered discourse of Western decline or a triumphant announcement of Asian economic-semiotic arrival? Is the Asian Century an aspiration or a threat—and to whom?

Resisting Extraction in the Age of Global Climate Change

Critical Humanities
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 31, 2024

Fall 2024 Issue of Critical Humanities examines narrative innovations and new scholarly approaches in representations of contemporary and/or day-to-day struggles against climate change and extraction. How do narratives from the Global South ― in literature, print, film and media ― understand the impacts of climate change and industrial extraction on minority communities? In what ways do representations of climate change highlight its intersections with colonial, neo-colonial and postcolonial forms of extraction? What are the new and innovative methods for us to theorize responses, struggles, and resistance efforts against the hostile conditions of extraction in the context of climate change?

'THE HUMAN AND THE MACHINE: AI AND THE CHANGING WORLD'

If we are to believe the entertainment media, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is destined to go rogue and take over the world, destroying humanity as we know it. In reality, the growing accessibility of AI is seeing its use normalised and it is becoming a useful tool to improve and alter society. Artificial Intelligence has been an area of research since the 1950s and hinges on machine functions that learn from humans or independently. Despite its long history,

Neobaroque (in) Word and Image – call for the contributions to the edited volume

Dominika Bugno-Narecka, Catholic University of Lublin
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 15, 2024

Studies by scholars including Greg Lambert, William Egginton, Omar Calabrese, David Castillo, Helen Hills, Monika Kaup and Lois Parkinson Zamora indicate that the Baroque is more than merely a period in art of and around the 17th century that derives its name from an irregular and odd-shaped pearl and refers to something strange, bizarre, irregular and disproportionate, hence, imperfect. Neobaroque stems from the baroque tradition and accommodates the baroque as a historical period with its complexity and proliferation. It is appropriate for the instances of reproduction and/or transformation of the ideas and the strategies of the Baroque in contemporary culture.
