With Disney’s initial apathetic response to the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill which recently passed in the state of Florida, it is time to shed light on Disney’s complex relationship with the LGBTQIA2S+ community. Recently, there have been works which briefly discuss the relationship of queerness and Disney, such as Sean Griffin’s Tinker Bells and Evil Queens (2000), Melanie S. Kohnen Queer Representation, Visibility, and Race (2016), Jennifer Sandlin and Julie Garlen’s edited collection Disney, Culture, and Curriculum (2016), and Joseph Brennan’s edited collection Queerbaiting and Fandom (2019). However, the queer artist/contributor has yet to be the main topic of discussion.

Less is more. Unclutter the mind. Spark joy. More than a generation has passed since Columbia University’s 1988 Summer Writers’ Festival brought together a roundtable for “Throwing Dirt on the Grave of Minimalism,” but it seems minimalisms are alive and well both in aesthetics and in lifestyles in the twenty-first century. What are the forms, styles, and genres of minimalism today? What is their relation to the heyday of minimalist sculpture, music, literature, and architecture in the 1960s through 1980s? Who are the practitioners of minimalism, and how are various minimalisms gendered, racialized, sexualized, and classed? And under what social, political, and economic conditions are these practitioners drawn to minimalism now?

James Joyce’s Ulysses first appeared in its entirety on February 2, 2022, on the occasion of his fortieth birthday. In this its centenary, as we naturally celebrate its remarkable literary achievement, we just as naturally take note, given the state of the world a hundred years on, of the circumstances of its composition and earlier appearance.

Routledge Companion to Ecopoetics call for abstracts

updated:

Orchid Tierney
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, July 31, 2022

The Routledge Companion to Ecopoetics offers comprehensive coverage of the vital and growing movement of ecopoetics. We understand the term ecopoetics as including innovative approaches to the entanglement of individuals, cultures, and languages with the natural systems that permeate and envelop them. We begin with the assumption that ecopoetics is not a genre such as ecopoetry or nature poetry, but rather a dynamic field of inquiry and a laboratory for new ways of knowing. The collection will be global in scope, with contributors drawn from a wide range of nations, ethnicities, and gender identities.

Disability in the Global Middle Ages

updated: 
Thursday, July 14, 2022 - 5:02pm
Society for the Study of Disability in the Middle Ages
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 15, 2022

Since its emergence, medieval disability studies has asked questions about the meanings of disability in the Middle Ages, the lived experiences of people with disabilities, and how scholars can apply the frameworks of disability studies to medieval texts. Although these questions have led to insightful and field-changing scholarship, much of this work centers the Western tradition. In order to explore a broader and more accurate view of disability in the global Middle Ages, we ask these same questions but with a focus on non-Western texts. This panel seeks presentations on any aspect of disability in the global Middle Ages, and we welcome submissions from across disciplines, including literature, art, history, religion, and philosophy.

Charles Olson Adrift: The Reach of Black Mountain Poetry

The Charles Olson Society
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 9, 2022

The Charles Olson Society will sponsor a session at the annual Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture Since 1900, to be held February 23-25, 2023. We are interested in abstracts that examine the influence of Charles Olson and/or other Black Mountain Poets on poetic practices and their developments up to the present. A variety of poets took up the innovative practices of figures like Charles Olson, Robert Creeley, Robert Duncan, John Wieners, and others associated with Black Mountain. How have the practices of this fundamentally important school of poetics been extended, transformed, and/or resisted by other poets?

The Hidden Queer: Queer Approaches to Disney's Fairy Tale Films

updated: 
Thursday, July 14, 2022 - 10:58am
Brittany Eldridge
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

This edited collection would focus on the application of queer theory and queer approaches to Disney films that are infamous for queerbaiting, queer coding, and queer pandering, as well as the parodies of Disney films that stem from this. 

Previous works such as Kay Turner and Pauline Greenhill’s The Transgressive Tales (2012) looks into the queer retellings of the Brothers Grimms' edited collection of tales. This collection seeks to go beyond the Brothers Grimm and showcase queer approaches to the Disney fairy tale. With the 'Don't Say Gay' Bill and the apathetic response, it is time to shed light on this academic area and the link between Disney fairy tale films and the queer community.
