This collection focuses on the cultural, global, political, and social narratives of future space(s).

We suggest that critiques of narratives and discourses about digital and virtual spaces,

artificial intelligence, space exploration, and even the colonization of space and planets can

provide needed insights about global futures, especially as they inform how we ought to and who

ought to live in the present with environmental destruction, information capitalism,

neoliberalism, and the remaining infrastructures of colonialism. The works here complicate the

Tolkien’s Medievalism in Ruins: The Function of Relics and Ruins in Middle-earth

updated: 
Tuesday, May 9, 2023 - 4:42am

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, July 1, 2023

Many notable scholars have probed the motif of ruins in ancient and medieval texts: Alain Schnapp, Alan Lupack, Geoffrey Ashe, and Richard Barber read the poetics of ruins in Latin poetry, the Exeter Book, and Arthuriana. Scholars working outside of the Classical Age and Middle Ages have also examined how this topos persists in literary periods up through the Renaissance, Romanticism, and to today. In short, the structural and symbolic purposes of ruins in literary texts have a long history, and the literary-critical history of engaging these poetics influences our interests in essays grounded in reading relationships between literary history and relics and ruins in Tolkien’s legendarium.

Approximately one year ago, on May 2, 2022, a draft decision leaked from the US Supreme Court confirmed what many had feared: that the highest US court was set to overturn the 1973 decision Roe vs. Wade and roll back protections governing women’s rights. Almost immediately after, appointment books and clinics began to close in multiple US states. This situation was far from isolated; in the U.K., for example, pandemic gains for women in access to early at-home abortion rolled back on August 29th, 2022. As these and other examples from around the world demonstrate, the present moment appears to be one of regression and regulation.

International Conference on Poetry Studies: "Poetry Between Creation and Interpretation"

updated: 
Tuesday, May 9, 2023 - 4:37am
London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 30, 2023

Poetry is a constant, being produced by all known civilisations from ancient to modern times. Throughout its extensive history, the individual art of high emotions sublimated into perfect language has approached a vast array of subject matters, including love, war, social issues, the beauty of nature, etc. A particular exercise of the mind and soul, and a unique way of apprehending reality, poetry is a self-sufficient universe that intensifies and enlarges life experience. Pointing to inner knowledge rather than real circumstance, it activates different layers of perception, sweeps away human thoughts, feeds emotions and soothes suffering.

"Narratives of Displacement" International Conference

updated: 
Tuesday, May 9, 2023 - 4:37am
London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 15, 2023

The conference seeks to explore the narratives of displacement and to demonstrate the validity of a cross-disciplinary approach which brings together the historical, cultural, social and literary expertise in the handling of text. The conference will particularly focus on time and space representations and on treatment of the theme of cultural ambivalence and identity conflict. The subject of displacement will be regarded as both a migration, voluntary or forced, and a sense of being socially or culturally “out of place”.

“Queer Politics in Media and Legal Cultures”

 

In 2022, the Floridian Parental Rights in Education bill, commonly known as “Don’t Say Gay Bill,” heralded a new era of legal censorship specifically targeting LGBTQ persons. Later that year, Florida’s Governor Ron DeSantis punished the Walt Disney Company for publicly speaking out against the state’s increasingly hostile anti-queer stance. By dissolving Disney’s special status as an independent governing district, DeSantis retaliated for the company’s public criticism.

Nanjing University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 30, 2023

    Writers and critics have in recent years hailed for a “return” of realism to the literary arena with revised notions of what constitutes realist representation to take account of the experiences that are unique to our new era, e.g. “speculative realism”, “metonymic realism”, “ecocritical realism”, and “quantum realism”, to name just a few. Indeed, realism has neverbeen away from the academic limelight despite its accused naivety in aspiring to represent reality objectively, unabashed interpellation of readers into dominant ideologies or as a symptom of the waning of affect in late capitalism.

- The second must focus on Santayana and Romanticism (German, but not exclusively) and explore the philosopher's attitude to the philosophical principles and ideals of Romantic culture (his relation to Romantic poetry is the object of a different chapter.

Queer Environs

Special Issue of Diacritics

Edited by Austin Lillywhite and Nicole Seymour

Call for Proposals

Both noun and verb, “environ” points to what’s “out there,” one’s milieu or surrounding world, the assemblage of human and more-than-human beings in which one finds oneself situated, as well as the activity of encircling an area to enclose, circumnavigate, or occupy it. So too, “queer,” as noun and verb, derives its original meaning from space, referring to something that is oblique, slanted, or off-center.
