    Writers and critics have in recent years hailed for a “return” of realism to the literary arena with revised notions of what constitutes realist representation to take account of the experiences that are unique to our new era, e.g. “speculative realism”, “metonymic realism”, “ecocritical realism”, and “quantum realism”, to name just a few. Indeed, realism has neverbeen away from the academic limelight despite its accused naivety in aspiring to represent reality objectively, unabashed interpellation of readers into dominant ideologies or as a symptom of the waning of affect in late capitalism.

The immortal Fascination of the Monster. Monstrous Births and human Phenomena between Normality and Deviation.

Edited by Marina Mascherini and Bruno Accarino 

Today wonders and prodigies are on the agenda and populate literature, cinema, art, philosophy. A new curiosity about deviance and normality has certainly contributed, and still contributes, to the fascination ascribable to the extraordinary and the marginal. Once the ideals of order and rationality entered deeply into crisis, wonder and the marvelous have assumed an unimaginable importance, especially in intellectual circles.

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 15, 2023

Looming ecological and economic catastrophe has lent urgency to calls for “concrete utopian” solutions to capitalism’s excesses and to global governments’ failure to constrain those excesses—or to constrain them in ways that are consistent with democratic principles and international solidarity.  In this issue, we would like to prioritize articles that address the humanities’ role(s) in articulating and implementing real solutions to the political and economic issues of the twenty-first century.  We are interested in articles that emphasize the constructive over the diagnostic.

Postcolonial Infrastructure [EXTENDED]

Annual Conference of the German Association for Postcolonial Studies (GAPS) University of Konstanz, 18-20 May 2023
deadline for submissions:

Extended Deadline: 31 January 2023

 

Mobility systems, urban planning, markets, educational facilities, digital appliances: infrastructure organizes social life, assigns subject positions, and enables or prevents cultural exchange. Yet its powerful role often goes unnoticed as most infrastructure is designed to recede into the half-conscious background of daily life. In recent years, researchers in several fields have begun to uncover the sociopolitical hierarchies and resistant forces at work in the construction, maintenance, transformation, and dismantling of infrastructure. Postcolonial studies has much to contribute to this research—and vice versa.

The keynote presentation, panels and roundtables will focus on the historical connections between Haiti and Africa, and the cultural, political, social, and economic specificities of Haiti that derive directly and indirectly from those connections. The conference will explore how the transatlantic slave trade and the colonial era, through the revolutionary and the post-independence shape contemporary Haitian realities. Papers will also seek parallels and intersections among contemporary Haitian and African realities as emergence of shared colonial and neocolonial experiences, and take stock of current intellectual, cultural, political, and economic links and gaps between Haiti and Africa.

Call for Papers: Small Screen Supers: Essays on Superhero Television 

As superhero films have proliferated, so too has superhero television. But as scholarship on superhero films has similarly proliferated, scholarship on superhero television has not. When superhero television is discussed by scholars, it is often as an offshoot of filmic franchises rather than as a phenomenon in its own right, with its own histories and contexts of production, its own approaches to adaptation, and its own dynamics of reception.
