The Interdisciplinary Journal of Leadership Studies is seeking submissions for its inaugural volume, themed around “Leadership, Pandemic, and Disease.” We welcome submissions from any discipline in the social sciences, humanities, sciences, arts, or cross-disciplinary studies that address questions of leadership, justice, policy, and/or society relating to the concepts of illness, disease, and pandemic (taken literally or metaphorically).
The COVID-19 pandemic challenged the capabilities of our modern healthcare infrastructure and forced us to reimagine everyday spaces as sites of convalescence and caretaking. As hospitals reached mass capacity, we had to question: what accommodations can we make to transform both private and public places into spaces of care? The same question motivated nineteenth-century debates over how to best tackle the century’s national health crises. At a time of high imperialism, rapid industrialization, and rampant contagion, Victorians realized that models of caretaking could no longer be relegated to the provincial sickroom.

BOOK: Studies in Religious Trauma: Causes, Manifestations, and Treatments
Click the link below to submit your proposal:
GCRR Press is releasing a large-scale publication that will offer an interdisciplinary and scientific examination of the origins, impact, and treatment options of religious trauma. The intended audience for this publication will be therapeutic practitioners, psychological researchers, and sufferers of religious trauma. Currently, this textbook-style resource will include sections on:
In June 1906, James Joyce wrote to his publisher Grant Richards, who suggested changes to Dubliners for mitigating the text’s supposed ‘indecency’, “I seriously believe that you will retard the course of civilization in Ireland by preventing the Irish people from having one good look at themselves in my nicely polished looking-glass.” Joyce’s metaphor recalls the popular Wildean aphorism, first published in the preface to The Picture of Dorian Gray: “The nineteenth century dislike of Realism is the rage of Caliban at seeing his own face in a glass.

“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.”
The editors are seeking historically and theoretically insightful essays that explore various aspects of crime and criminal justice films made and/or released in the United States during the decade of the 1970s. Individual contributions may address the social construction of crime, application of criminological theory, examination of moral dilemmas, as well as analysis that connects past representations to present social and cultural conditions. In-depth analyses of period representations of class, ethnicity, gender, masculinity, race, and sexual orientation are also desired. Potential contributors are encouraged to interpret and explore this topic area quite broadly and innovatively.
The Latchkey: A Journal of New Woman Studies is soliciting articles, book reviews, short essays on teaching resources, and brief biographical sketches of New Woman writers and cultural figures.
A peer-reviewed and open-access online journal, The Latchkey seeks a balance between established and emerging scholars devoted to current and innovative scholarship on the concept of the New Woman, the lives and writing of New Women authors and figures, representations of the New Woman in culture and society, sports and travel, and fin-de-siecle proto-feminism.
When Siskel and Ebert famously launched their offensive against what they labeled as “Women in Danger films,” they effectively positioned slasher films as anti-feminist, exploitative, and lacking all artistic merit. But in the intervening years, this once much maligned sub-genre has enjoyed increasing acclaim for its subversive potential and reflection of cultural norms. This special issue seeks to examine the elements of the “new slasher” that potentially explain this shift.
When Serena Williams wore a ‘catsuit’ during the 2018 French Open, this choice of clothing was banned because it allegedly showed a lack of “respect” for the game of tennis. The decision, and the overall incident, caused an uproar that went well beyond the world of sports, with many commentators criticizing the ban as a punishment directly aimed at policing women’s bodies.
This panel will explore the particular liminal quality of the way women write about the houses they live in: how they develop relationships with their domestic places, how they express themselves in the way they inhabit the space, and how they may even come to interact with the house as if it’s a knowing, responsive entity. Looking at examples in fiction and memoir, from writers as varied as Virginia Woolf, Shirley Jackson, May Sarton and Sarah Broom, we’ll explore women’s houses as seats of psychic power and sites of domestic alchemy.
Early Modern Women: An Interdisciplinary Journal Volume 17.1 (Fall 2022) will feature a forum on “Women’s Soundscapes in the Early Modern World.”

Well-developed essays on major rock music artists are sought for publication in the For the Record book series. These essays should extend beyond biography into some aspects of the artist's creative work. Of particular interest are essays on rock performers who have made an impact since 1980 and essays that discuss the artist's music, iconic status, and cultural significance. Of course, essays on Elton John, David Bowie, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, and other major figures who made their mark before 1980 are also welcome.
An extraordinary nineteenth-century American woman, Julia Ward Howe was a courageous abolitionist, suffragist, pacifist, poet, public speaker, and founder of many organizations whose purpose was the intellectual and political advancement of women. To acknowledge and examine this notable woman’s increasingly complicated and fraught legacy a one-day symposium will be held at Boston University’s College of General Studies (CGS) on June 11, 2022, and includes a luncheon with a keynote address by Pulitzer-Prize winning biographer and historian, Megan Marshall.
The symposium is co-sponsored by the Harriet Beecher Stowe Society, Boston University’s College of General Studies (CGS), and CGS’s Center for Interdisciplinary Teaching & Learning.

Realism, which had played an important role in the literary output of the era of decolonization, is now often cast as outmoded, especially in comparison to post/modernism and impugned as insufficient to represent the current crisis. Mark Fisher and Amitav Ghosh are two of the most recent, widely read critics who maintain realism is incapable to address the politics of our times. Others, pointing to Lukács’ classical definition of realism as specific to bourgeois culture, argue that it is an inherently conservatism form, able only to depict the status quo, but incapable of imagining alternative frameworks for thinking about the world in an era of increased globalization and climate crisis.
Abundance and Scarcity
International conference for young researchers (CLIMAS-Culture et Littérature des Mondes Anglophones)
Bordeaux Montaigne University, 17-18 February, 2022, Bordeaux, France
The Charles Olson Society will sponsor a session at the annual Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture Since 1900, to be held February 24-26, 2022. We seek abstracts concerning the relationship between avant-garde American poetics and empire, colonialism, and other national or international issues. These concerns are intimately related to Charles Olson’s poetics, given his choice of Gloucester, Massachusetts, as his subject for The Maximus Poems as well as his six-month stay in Yucatan during 1951.
The Charles Olson Society will sponsor a session at the annual Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture since 1900, to be held February 24-26, 2022. We seek abstracts concerning the relationship between avant-garde American poetics and spirituality, religion, and/or other mystical influences. The connection between experimental verse and spiritual traditions relates directly to Charles Olson’s poetry and to the poetry of many other important post-1945 figures. While Olson’s early poetry is often lauded for its materialist concerns, his later poetics has, at times, been dismissed for what poet Jack Clarke once called “the kook strain,” a line of thinking that grew increasingly esoteric, mystical, and gnostic.
