Yellowstone (2018, Paramount Network), Taylor Sheridan’s neo-Western television series that premiered in 2018, has grown into a cultural phenomenon. Not only has the show itself been enormously popular (as measured by its ratings and fan following within the United States and South Africa, for example), but its characters, and the Dutton family that are central to the story, have since been incorporated into a shared story universe covering a period from 1881 to the present day. This story is centred around the fictional Yellowstone ranch in Montana, which is both the main setting and metaphorical heart of the show.

Palgrave Handbook on Parenthood in Popular Culture: Deadline approaching!

Monday, August 28, 2023 - 12:10pm
Edited by Elizabeth Podnieks (Toronto Metropolitan University) and Helena Wahlström Henriksson (Centre for Gender Research at Uppsala University)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, August 31, 2023

As editors of the Palgrave Handbook on Parenthood in Popular Culture, which is under contract and has 15 commissioned chapters, we seek approximately 25 additional chapters (6,500-7,500 words) on topics related to parenthood in popular culture. We aim to foreground Indigenous, racialized, LGBTQ+ and non-normative experiences, in contributions that explore popular cultural representations of parental identities from intersectional perspectives, and from diverse cultural and geopolitical locations. Chapters may focus on either mothers/mothering/motherhood or fathers/fathering/fatherhood, or interrogate parents/parenting/parenthood as more comprehensive terms, across genders and in non-binary contexts.

Narratological Perspectives on the Public Faces of Science

updated: 
Sunday, August 27, 2023 - 5:39pm
International Society for the Study of Narrative
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 1, 2023

The intersection of narrative and science has become a major area of theoretical and practical interest in communication studies, journalism, literary studies, education, evidence-based policymaking and, of course, science itself.

Considerable attention has been paid to narrative as a tool that can facilitate the communication, reach, persuasiveness and comprehension of scientific information (e.g., Dahlstrom 2021; Olmos 2020; ElShafie 2018; Suzuki et al 2018). While we are interested in this topic, it already enjoys ample theoretical, empirical and pedagogical attention. We are therefore most interested in other ways of thinking about the nexus of narrative studies and public science.

The line, encased by parentheses in the 1892 version of Leaves of Grass, famously runs: “(I am large, I contain multitudes.)” Extending and containing the self conceptually and syntactically, Whitman proclaims his potential for contradiction as well as the creation of a protean lyric psyche.

The Rise of Autoliterature (NeMLA 2024 panel)

updated: 
Thursday, August 24, 2023 - 11:42am
Northeast Modern Language Association / NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2023

This panel will analyze autofiction and autotheory as contemporary literary genres still on the rise, with particular interest in putting the two in conversation with each other. 


Autofiction and autotheory continue to grow in popularity as forms of contemporary life writing. Despite their differences, these two genres share a concern in representations of selfhood and subjective experience that explicitly engage and are shaped by other literary and philosophical texts. Moreover, by emphasizing the intertextuality of lived experience, they both challenge (1) the perceived conventionality of more established life writing genres, such as memoir, and (2) everyday assumptions of unmediated, individual self-expression.

Transcending Boundaries – Interdisciplinary Insights in Transpacific Studies

TPSN Hybrid Conference

Terisa Siagatonu knows a thing or two about not being afraid to rile up her audience. The Samoan American poet and Pacific Islander activist pushes listeners to reflect on what it means to come from a region of the world that is often misunderstood, if not altogether ignored. In “Atlas” (2018) she memorably writes:

Batman… Also Starring: Essays on the Caped Crusader’s Supporting Cast

updated: 
Wednesday, August 23, 2023 - 10:43am
Christopher Maverick
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 1, 2023

The editor of Batman… Also Starring is seeking abstracts for essays that could be included in the upcoming collection. Many academic texts focus on Batman as a cultural figure in comics as well as in films, television programs, and video games. However, like all great superheroes, Batman is as much defined by his supporting cast as he is by his costume, abilities or origin. While there is no shortage of scholarship devoted to his most famous sidekicks — such as Nightwing, Batgirl or the many Robins — and his most popular villains — like Joker, Catwoman, and Harley Quinn — little critical attention has been paid to the majority of his cast.

New Directions in Eighteenth-Century Visual Culture

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 15, 2023

During a roundtable discussion (now published in Journal18), scholars pointed out that visual culture emerged as a distinct methodology. Visual culture aims to problematize the Eurocentric, colonialist, racist, heteronormative, and patriarchal assumptions that enforced and continue to enforce the art historical discipline. This panel continues and expands these crucial conversations by exploring the relationship between art history and visual culture during the long eighteenth-century.

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2023

The intersection of technology and the human body has given rise to a myriad of possibilities, transforming our perception of self, relationships, and the world around us. In this panel, we will delve into representations of corporeal technologies in literature and the impact on understandings of memory, body, and lived experiences. Panelists are invited to explore the ways in which corporeal technologies influence the formation, preservation, and retrieval of memory, ultimately shaping subjective experiences. 

Panel topics may include but are not limited to:

Awash in Digital Imagery: what next for traditional art and museums?
In this panel, we explore provocative questions related to the inevitable shifts that art makes in order to survive and thrive in the digital era. We consider the changes to our perceptions of art this shift enacts. We look for answers to the question of where art history finds itself as a discipline when some argue that art may have lost its Heideggerian thinginess?

As part of Peter Lang’s “Companion” series, the proposed volume is a collection of essays on Ray Bradbury, his life, works and cultural impact.

The series: https://www.peterlang.com/series/gffc

We are looking for proposals for 25-30 essays of 2500-3000 words (all inclusive) for the volume.

The Indiana College English Association invites papers for its 88th Annual Conference that engage conversations about “Making the Invisible, Visible” through the discipline of English and its subfields. How do we encourage the sharing of stories, of research that shines light on disparate truths through reading, writing, analysis, discussion, epistemology? How do we engage English Studies to resist restrictions on bodies, identities, teaching and learning, to resist the banning of books and canonical literature? How do we make the invisible visible, from the unpaid labor of adjunct faculty to the unrecognized work of English students, faculty, and Writing Program Administrators? How do we compose and converse about texts of all kinds?
