Culture and Dialogue
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 15, 2024

Culture and Dialogue provides a forum for researchers from philosophy as well as other disciplines who study cultural formations dialogically, through comparative analysis, or within the tradition of hermeneutics. The journal publishes one volume of two issues each year. One issue welcomes manuscripts that consider the broad theme of “culture and dialogue” in all its forms, from all perspectives, and through all methods. The other issue is thematic and seeks to bring manuscripts together with a common denominator such as “Philosophy and the Dialogue,” “Art in Conversation,” “Comparing Cultures,” or “Dialogical Ethics.” The theme of the thematic issue is announced through dedicated calls for papers.

Special Issue on "Borders / Crossing in medieval English literature, language, and culture"

ÉTUDES MÉDIÉVALES ANGLAISES
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, October 15, 2024

We are pleased to announce a call for papers for a special issue of EMA (Etudes Médiévales Anglaises) on the theme
"Borders / Crossing in medieval English literature, language, and culture." 

The notions of borders and crossing, and the articulation between them, can be conceived in many ways. Borders, whether natural or arbitrary, sealed or porous, fixed or mobile, as limits or confines, spatial or temporal, can be seen as an obstacle or a wall. They are also a challenge to be taken up and overcome (expansion, threshold to a new era), hence the notion of crossing (movement, transfer, transformation). As delimitations, borders help to constitute an identity which refers to the outside as otherness.

“Revolutions are the locomotives of history,” wrote Marx 175 years ago in The Class Struggles in France, where the working and peasant classes were struggling against the capitalist system. Today, not only have the conditions of human beings failed to improve, but the rise of neo-capitalism and its imperial power has led to the rebirth of slavery in countries such as Congo and Libya, the complete destruction of third-world nations like Palasteine and Haiti by neocolonialism, and the further isolation of the working class across the globe.

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, August 1, 2024

For a special issue of TDR: The Drama Review, a journal of performance studies, co-editor madison moore and consortium editor Rebecca Schneider seek submissions that engage the “knowing how” of queer nightlife. “Knowing” here finds kinship with feeling, glitter on the floor, skin on skin, tactility, sweat, diffraction, dissolution.

We are interested in the many elemental gestures, performances, forms of labor, mess, doing/undoing, imagination, making/unmaking as well as the failures, exhaustions, and obstacles that power or foreclose the rhythms of community, pleasure, and ecstasy at
night.

This session at the 2024 Pacific Ancient & Modern Language Association (PAMLA) conference will explore the tendency of contemporary literary works to portray non-human entities through a racial lens. We invite papers that examine this trend in the context of techno-Orientalism, which often reduces and objectifies the image of Asians to that of the hyper-modern. Submissions may adopt either a theoretical or a literary analysis approach. Please check the details here: View Session (ballastacademic.com).

Migration, Diaspora, and Critical Nostalgia in Modern Arab American Literature

Apply here: https://pamla.ballastacademic.com/Home/S/19317

 

The complexities of migration, diaspora, and critical nostalgia provide a lens through which to explore identity, belonging, and cultural memory. In the context of Arab American literature, these themes take on added significance, reflecting the multiple experiences and narratives of individuals and communities navigating the intersections of Arab and American senses of un-be-longing.

Queer Horror: A Companion

“To create a broad analogy, monster is to ‘normality’ as homosexual is to heterosexual” (Benshoff, 1997). This quote, well worn within the pages of academic criticism, speaks to how the connection between queer identity and the horror genre is now so established as to become indivisible. From Frankenstein’s Creature to Dracula, the Babadook to Jennifer Check, in fiction and in film these monstrous queers “live in a world that hates them. They’ve adapted, they’ve learned to conceal themselves. They’ve survived” (Machado, 2020). Kirsty Logan, in the Foreword to It Came From the Closet, suggests that “horror [never] gives us LGBTQIA+ people accurate representation.

Horror Homeroom Special Issue #9: Body Horror

Horror Homeroom
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, August 18, 2024

Though the term was coined in 1986, ‘body horror’ dates back to the beginnings of Gothic literature—Shelley’s Frankenstein (1818); Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1886)—and extends into contemporary fiction, film, and new media. From seminal works including David Cronenberg’s The Fly (1986) to contemporary zombie films and portrayals of the digital-corporeal connection, as in the Unfriended franchise and Jane Schoenbrun’s recent I Saw the TV Glow, embodiment remains central to the horror genre. Mirroring the porousness of the body itself, the category evades compartmentalization and definition.

 Special Issue CFP for TWC: Disability

Robert McRuer writes in Crip Theory that at some point in every person’s life, if they live long enough, they will be disabled. Yet, while disablement is an extremely common experience and ableism a hegemonic form of marginalization, disability is largely understudied across fields (Minich 2016, Ellcessor 2018). Fan studies has neglected to consistently explore disability or acknowledge the presence of ableism, resulting in a dearth of peer-reviewed publications on this intersection and a silencing of crip critique from disabled fans and scholars.

Counterfactual Game Design: Past-as-Process

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 22, 2024

Counterfactuals in games have started to catch the attention of various disciplines, aiming to understand just what pasts are (and are not) reckoned with. The fields of historical game studies, media studies and archeaogaming have begun untangling the conceptual and theoretical underpinnings of counterfactual play to focus on player experience. In this two-day workshop held at Leiden University on August 28th and 29th, we aim to approach counterfactuals from the other side of the same coin: the processes at play in counterfactual game design and development.
