Samyukta: A Journal of Gender & Culture proposes to bring out a special number on early women’s magazines in Malayalam. These magazines played a significant role in negotiating the gender dynamics in the late 19th and early 20th centuries in Keralam. The debates on the lives of women with reference to modernity, colonial or otherwise, have been fraught with paradoxes and contradictions that require detailed interrogation. While the grand narratives of the times were scripted by and for men, women’s lives were punctuated mostly by the banalities of everyday lives. The new found interest at the turn of the twenty-first century in micro-narratives that tell alternate stories contesting the dominant has prompted us to undertake the present study.
HUNGER AND WASTE
Volume 40, Number 1, Spring 2022
Issue Editor: Isabelle Meuret
This issue of Literature and Medicine will interrogate expressions of hunger and waste in both literary and biomedical contexts.
Hunger is a physiological disposition, a daily preoccupation, and a metaphor for desire. On another scale, global hunger—leading to malnutrition and starvation—affects hundreds of millions living in poverty. As for waste, the dearth, careless use, or squandering of resources, together with climate change and other environmental challenges, have raised new concerns about food supplies and unequal access.
The 13th Annual Louisiana Studies Conference will be held September 24-25, 2021 at Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. The 2021 conference will be held in a virtual delivery format via Microsoft Teams. The conference committee is now accepting presentation proposals for the upcoming conference. Presentation proposals on any aspect of the 2021 conference theme “Heroes, Saints, and Outlaws,” as well as creative texts by, about, and/or for Louisiana and Louisianans, are sought for this year’s conference.
Wide Screen invites papers for its 2021 General Issue (Issue 9 No. 1).
For the last several years, we have worked primarily with guest editors who have edited special issues that have attracted exciting work on subjects such as the production of cinematic space, video games, and the studio system in Indian cinema. This year, we want to invite papers for a general issue that is open to new, critical work in all areas of film and media studies.
You can submit critical essays, book reviews, festival reports or interviews.
We are also accepting abstracts for two dossiers that will be a part of this issue.

Nature and Overnature in SF and Fantasy Discourses
Science Fiction and Fantasy are lasting fields of inquiring into today’s world. They have become privileged means to question issues of aesthetic, ethical, political, social, economic, environmental and historical nature with high impact on contemporary societies. They have promoted hot-button issues and rich critical debates in literature as well as in cinema, TV, and videogames among other media.

Solo Theater and Performance
Solo Theater and Performance is envisaged as an edited anthology of critical essays encompassing contemporary practices, issues and methods, prominent figures, and historical contexts in the domain of one-person theater and performance. Research scholars and academics interested in the area are welcome to contribute to the proposed volume.
2021 marks the 10th anniversary of Allison Hawthorne Deming and Lauret Savoy’s The Colors of Nature: Culture, Identity, and the Natural World. The essays that Deming and Savoy collect in this important anthology all seek to expand traditional understandings of nature writing and environmental thought by reflecting on “how identity and place, human history and ‘natural’ history, power and silence, and social injustice and environmental degradation are fundamentally linked” (10).
In the early modern period, numerous travel memoirs and geographical texts assumed the form of printed compilations or composite collections. For a long time, only bibliophiles and book collectors, in their search for the “complete” collections, considered such texts as having true unity; Boucher de La Richarderie (1808), who put together a bibliography that is authoritative to this day, is a case in point. Such collections were often used as a way to find precise texts from such and such traveller or chronicler, without taking into account the book in which the texts featured, qua book.
Papers are sought for a book collection on any aspect of epistemological representations with a focus on ecocritical, environmental, ethic and literary approaches. The book explores both oral and written representations of the land and nature throughout the Ibero-American world.

While the Bright Young Things of England and the flappers of the America remain fixed in cultural memory, their incarnations elsewhere around the world have all but disappeared from history. Affiliation with a feminized Anglo-European metropole may have contributed to their invisibility in the colonial peripheries, which constructed political identities around paradigms of masculine nationhood or were anxious to distinguish themselves from Anglo-European mass culture. Despite her iconic status in the interwar period, the Modern Girl was a stigmatized female figure in her own time, and that stigma seems to have carried over into the academy, inhibiting serious critical analysis of her role and function as an image for modernity.
