Fumbling Towards Ecstasy: The Intersectionality of Music and Deviance
Editor:Sylvia M DeSantis

This volume will explore the avenues through which 20th century musicians, and their enthused audiences, created necessarily deviant cultural movements. From the optimism engendered by the Big BandEra to socially justice-mindedGrunge in the ‘90s, musicians have used their stage power to resist, reward, and recreate long-standing cultural codes.

LATIN AMERICAN WOMEN WRITERS’ CONTRIBUTION TO WORLD LITERATURE

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 31, 2021

Latin America encompassing South America, parts of Central America, and the Caribbean Islands is remarkable for women’s movements from time to time. While most historical genealogies trace the origin of Latin American feminism around the time period of 1960s and 1970s, a strong feminist expression is evident long before the significant decades of 1960s and 1970s. The earliest feminist expression can be traced as early as during the seventeenth century which emerged as a result of Latin American women’s encounter with the European colonisers. As a result of colonialism, Latin American women became dual victims of oppression: one at the hands of the Europeans, and other, at the hands of their own countrymen.

Optimistic Apocalypses: The End as a New Beginning, March 4, 2022

Wednesday, December 1, 2021 - 3:35pm

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 21, 2022

Apocalypse implies a number of fraught theoretical terms, such as Freud’s death drive or the concept of the Anthropocene. Apocalypse, as a genre and a term, invites capacious understandings and definitions. To ground apocalypse in the past, present, and future, we can look to Kathryn Yusoff’s conception of the Anthropocene as “a politically infused geology and scientific/popular discourse [that] is just now noticing the extinction it has chosen to continually overlook in the making of its modernity and freedom” (Preface xiii).
