After the New Oxford Shakespeare credited Christopher Marlowe as co-author of 1, 2, and 3 Henry VI in 2016, Shakespeare’s short-lived contemporary has drawn a wave of renewed interest. Since then, new editions of Doctor Faustus, The Massacre at Paris, and The Jew of Malta have appeared, three collections of essays have been published, and a well-attended international Marlowe conference was held in Wittenberg, Germany. Marlowe’s plays continue to be a staple of contemporary non-Shakespearean performance with recent celebrated productions at the RSC’s Swan Theatre and the National Theatre.

This special issue of The Hemingway Review aims to deepen the conversation about Hemingway, Blackness, and Whiteness. Recognizing Hemingway was taught and expected to perform White Supremacy and Privilege, we call on scholars to demonstrate ways to identify and make meaning of racism and anti-racism in Hemingway’s work. What can we learn from Hemingway about the performance of Whiteness and what use is that knowledge? How have Black writers engaged Hemingway, both in his lifetime and later? What questions about Blackness and Whiteness in the United States should we be asking of Hemingway’s public persona, Hemingway’s writing, and our teaching of both?

4th Ventana Conference on Latin America:
Decolonial Dialogues from, within and beyond the Global Margins
5th-7th October 2022
University of York, United Kingdom
This special issue centers Blackness in fandom studies. Fandom studies has gestured toward race generally, and Blackness in particular, from its alleged white center while always keeping race at its margin. It has largely co-opted the language of race, difference, and diversity from the margins and recentered it around white geeks and white women. Indeed, fandom studies has done lots of things—except deal with its race problem. But as Toni Morrison (1975) asserts, that is the work of racism: it keeps those at the margins busy, trying to prove that they deserve a seat at the center table.
Essence & Critique: Journal of Literature and Drama Studies invites submissions for a special issue of the journal on Myths, Archetypes and the Literary Arts.

This proposed special issue navigates the intersections of Black and Indigenous ecologies. Ecologies encompass natural and constructed environments, understories, and overstories that allow renewed attention to notions of mobility, modernity, protest, climate change, human and nonhuman relationality, and more. Ecologies shape and are shaped by macro as well as micro units of the community, the nation-state, and the global. Ecologies are also fundamental to the ways we approach and understand historical, social, political, and economic relationships around the world.
