The Righteous Gemstones is a dark comedy about a world-famous megachurch pastor; his three children, who assist with the ministry; and various associates, extended family members, and antagonists. Each season (2019, 2022, 2023) is self-contained and intricately structured, inviting scene by scene and even frame by frame analysis. Typically the family faces two interconnected outside threats; parallel father-son crises featuring patriarch Eli, his eldest son, and his grandchildren; parallel relationship crises involving the other children and their partners; and a disruptive force.

ECOLOGY AND INTEGRATIVE DISCOURSE: A REFLECTIVE ANALYSIS
The word eco comes from the Greek word oikos, which etymologically implies household or earth and logy from logos implies rational discourse. Together they mean criticism of the house- the earth as represented in writing. It is therefore defined in general, as the study of literature and the physical environment put together. However, in larger context, it incorporates numerous variants of human life.

CFP: “Intelligence,” Journal of the Midwest Modern Language Association (JMMLA), Spring 2024
The Journal of the Midwestern Modern Language Association invites submissions for a Spring 2024 special issue on the theme of “Intelligence.”
In 2021, as a consequence of the pandemic, schools and colleges across the country placed a temporary freeze on standardized testing, reinforcing doubts regarding the necessity and efficacy of such tests to assess intellectual potential. Soon thereafter, the November 30th 2022 launch of ChatGPT-3 elicited responses ranging from the apocalyptic (the software is a huge step toward artificial general intelligence) to the skeptical (the software is not and cannot be intelligent).

Pedagogy is an exciting topic within Victorian scholarship that has attracted new critical focus in recent years. This issue seeks to include themes relating to the history and depiction of education in the nineteenth century, but also the ways in which Victorian Studies are being taught to students today.
To promote excellence in Collaborative T&I research, the “International Center for Research on Collaborative Translation” rewards MA theses and PhD dissertations in English, French and Italian that make a significant professional/practical or academic contribution to the field of Collaborative Translation.
The call is open to any student from any country.

The next issue of Diffractions explores immateriality in artistic and cultural practices as a form of both expression and resistance. For centuries, the histories of artistic practices (as well as historiographies and historicities) have been anchored to materiality and the production of objects. As Michel Claura argues, “[t]he history of art is the history of the technique of art” (1969, 83). Indeed, curatorship as we know it today initially developed around objects and their need of care.
Call for Papers: Special Section on "Reflecting on ‘The Teen Whisperer’: Twenty Years of John Green"
Edited by Dr Jennifer Gouck
Hailed by Margaret Talbot of The New Yorker as “the teen whisperer,” John Green has arguably been one of the most influential YA authors of the twenty-first century. Yet Green was not an instant success. His debut novel, Looking for Alaska, sold only a few thousand copies – most of which, Green told Shannon Maughan in an interview for Publishers Weekly, were hand-sold. Despite garnering critical acclaim in the form of the 2006 Printz Award, Alaska did not become a bestseller until seven years after its 2005 publication.
