In a brief survey of four 2016 A Midsummer Night’s Dream productions, Katherine Brokaw remarked that, this is, “perhaps of all Shakespeare’s plays, the one that most tempts radical and experimental interpretation. It is at once familiar and other” (Shakespeare Bulletin 35.1, 2017, pp. 148-156). Indeed, A Midsummer Night’s Dream has often been interpreted as a benevolent, cheerful story with airy, glittering fairies, well-meaning mechanicals, and lush natural settings, ending with a vision of natural harmony and social order.

[ Context: Big Data & Society has issued a call for Special Theme Proposals. I will be proposing “Divisive Data” as a special theme. This initial call is to gather a list of interested contributors, along with titles and abstracts of articles, to submit to BD&S. ]

The promise of the internet was a promise of connection. Networked technologies would erase the physical and cultural space that separated us. Digital communications would unite us like never before. Online platforms would “bring the world closer together” (Zuckerberg 2017). Communication technologies would collapse boundaries, encourage dialogue, and facilitate mutual understanding.

deadline for submissions:

ICNOVA book collection - a Portuguese editor - prepares an electronic book that gathers some of the texts presented at the Images & Archives seminar in 2019. The proposal intends to deepen the relationships between historical, artistic, anthropological and cultural research on photographs and films preserved in archives, both public and private. The documentary features of these images, their contexts and forms of re-contextualization, exhibition and display, the multiple histories with which they relate and the power relationships that produced and are reproduced by them are among the themes we wish to address, in the context of the "material turn" in the social sciences and the arts.

The Spanish Flu of 1918-19 killed somewhere between 50 to 100 million people, but it did not infect every country. The Covid-19 pandemic of 2019-20 has not killed nearly as many people but is arguably the first event in human history that affects every person on the planet. The Greek word pándemos means “belonging to all the people.” The Covid-19 pandemic belongs to everyone. It shows, in dramatic fashion, how we are all connected.

Making a Murderer: True Crime in Contemporary American Popular Culture

Crime Fiction Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 31, 2021

“Everybody’s fascinated with the notion that there is a cause and effect,” claims notorious serial killer Ted Bundy, quoted in the Netflix original, Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes (2019) – that we can “put our finger on it,” and reassuringly rationalise the genesis of the uniquely modern phenomenon of the American serial killer. But when there is “absolutely nothing” in the background of a serial murderer that would lead one to believe they were “capable of committing murder,” how do we begin to acclimatise ourselves to this violent defect of contemporary history?

Call for Participants: CLOSURE Interdisciplinary Autumn Online School (CIAOS) »Graphic Knowledge: Comics, Research, Communication« (University of Kiel, Germany, 12-14 October 2020)

What can comics know? At the CLOSURE Interdisciplinary Autumn Online School (CIAOS), we would like to explore forms of knowledge encoded in text and image, in panels and sequences, and in cartoons and symbols. Together with the participants, we will explore how the complex medium of comics represents and negotiates individual and collective knowledge, semiotics and social relationships, and performs and re-informs knowledge.
