I am seeking proposals for essays to be included in a proposed volume exploring conceptualizations and representations of Queenship as a dramatic role or performance. In bringing together essays from different disciplinary perspectives, that focus on particular Queen or a group of them, on particular actors or other aspects of performance the volume aims to create a clearer picture of what it has meant to ‘play the part’ of Queen at different times, in different places, and across different media and contexts to shed light on the ways in which the office of Queenship in practice in real historical situations has been culturally understood, interpreted and re-interpreted.

Literature from a local and regional perspective - World and Word special issue

University of Bielsko-Biała
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, March 20, 2023

The central  theme of the forthcoming 40th issue of our interdisciplinary journal "Świat i Słowo" [“World and Word”] is "Literature from a local and regional perspective." In the era of progressive globalization and universalization of culture, sometimes imposed  by the media and the so-called opinion-forming centers of the dominant civilization model, in which the world is perceived as a "global village" inhabited by a consumer society that is supposedly subject to inevitable changes forced by technological progress (with the revolution of artificial intelligence at the forefront), we want to turn to what we perceive as primal and natural, i.e. sources of literature, culture and art in our local and regional spaces and communities.

Presentations that highlight the successes and joy of Black/Afro-descendant communities, resistance, activism, and cultural production as well as interdisciplinary approaches are especially welcome.

MSA 2023 Proposed session on Queer Modernist Travel

Organized by Galen Bunting (Northeastern University) and Laura Tscherry (Indiana University) 

The figure of travel drives modernism: motion, migration, and mobility are enduring markers of modernist writing across genres. Much has been written about the urban flâneur, American émigrés to Paris, and modernist writers’ interest in “primitivism.” This panel seeks to expand the conversation by paying particular attention to queer modernist travels and travelers at the intersection of gender, race, and disability. 

Big Bad Future: Scale and Speculation in Environmental Literature (ASLE @ SAMLA)

deadline for submissions:

From Thoreau’s description of “vast, Titanic, inhuman nature” to Timothy Morton’s hyperobjects, scale has long been an epistemological tool for theorizing the relationship between nature and humanity. This tool has taken on special significance in the age of global anthropogenic climate change as artists and scholars struggle to give form to such enormous, widely dispersed upheaval as it slowly but persistently creeps into view. In the light of drowning major cities and intensifying weather events, we are left with the evergreen question: “what is to be done?” What role, if any, can literature play in the comprehension of and adaptation to such a brave new world? What interdisciplinary connections can be adopted to make art a more transformative force?
