The goal is to broaden the scholarly assessment of the period and to suggest innovative curricula for students in the humanities, who are also interested in working in museums and cultural institutes in Italy and abroad.

SPECIAL ISSUE CALL FOR PAPERS

'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

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.

The twenty-first century is nearly a quarter done. The contemporary – that category which has so often been theorised, following Barthes and Agamben, as fundamentally out of step with its own time – is starting to synchronise its watch with the temporal bounds of the current century.

Adrienne Rich has written that her feminist politics entails “locating the grounds from which to speak with authority,” beginning “not with a continent or a house, but with the geography closest in–the body.”  Taking inspiration from Rich and foundational women of color feminists, this panel invites papers exploring the politics of position within the academy and scholars' embodiment in relation to our work.

From Body Hacking to Body Activism: Redefining Bodies in Digital Media

updated: 
Wednesday, January 17, 2024 - 9:40am
Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, February 1, 2024

Digital media has dramatically changed our understanding, knowledge, and experience of bodies. Body tracking apps and smart watches allow for new and intense practices of self-surveillance; social media platforms such as Insta and Tiktok present the constant work of body optimization as reasonable and desirable; selfie culture commonly serves to demonstrate willing compliance with new unachievable beauty standards. Filters, editing, lighting, and angling suggest that everybody can be brought into normative shape. Bodies are highly commodified when influencers link their accounts to LTK or amazon storefronts where products are being sold that suggest that youth, fitness, health, thinness, and beauty can be bought.

In her 2020 publication Glitch Feminism: A Manifesto, Legacy Russell explores the notion of “glitch-as-error with its genesis in the realm of the machinic and the digital.” With this framing, she argues that glitches might “inform the way we see the AFK [Away-From-Keyboard or real] world, shaping how we might participate in it toward greater agency for and by ourselves” (8-9). With her sights set on social systems of gender, race, and sexuality in particular, Russell asks how embodied subjects who defy patriarchal white supremacist cisheterosexist norms are positioned or appear as glitches, as errors, in digital and AFK spaces.

Towards Inclusion and Authenticity: Addressing Cultural Dilemmas in Black Children's Audiobooks

updated: 
Wednesday, January 17, 2024 - 9:37am
Vashalice Kaaba/ Children's Literature Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 1, 2024

In the contemporary digital era, there has been a notable transition of Black children's literature towards the audiobook format, facilitated by platforms such as Audible, Overdrive, and Libby. This shift has significantly expanded the accessibility of Black children's literature beyond the traditional confines of physical books (Rubery, 2011). The role of audiobook narrators in this context becomes crucial, as they are instrumental in bringing stories to life, thereby enhancing the listening experience, comprehension, and the overall success of publishing ventures (Burkey, 2007).
