*CFP: ‘Personified Body Parts and Organs with a Mind of Their Own in Cinema, Literature and Visual Culture’
edited volume*

*Editors*: Gilad Padva and Yair Koren Maimon

 

This collection initially examines cinematic, televisual, literary, visual and poetic representations of body parts who are vitalized, autonomized, individuated and animated. They become independent entities with a mind of their own. Instead of being parts of intricate mechanisms, these organs turn into independent, humanized and personified "bodies."

According to Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, “To imagine is to represent without
aiming at things as they actually, presently and subjectively are.” Imagination is
associated with creativity and the ability to conceive and envision ideas, images,
visions, societies and sensations in ways that transcend reason, and reach beyond
reality. It is a force that ongoingly wrestles with the constitution of reality, and is
credited for having shaped the world as we know it through the cumulative work of
writers, artists, scientists and philosophers. Imagination, hence, produces, creates a
higher reality that becomes the new reality. It is a synthesizing force that oscillates

International Conference - Afterlives of Empire in the Public Imagination (Sapienza University of Rome)

CALL FOR PAPERS 

The resurgence of nationalist ideologies in Europe and the US has reignited interest in the histories and legacies of modern Empires. As of late, this has been strongly visible in the UK. The role of imperial nostalgia in the debates that paved the way for Brexit has drawn the attention of historians and cultural critics to how the memories and myths of Empire informed Europe-free imaginaries. Recent historical works have fruitfully investigated the legacies and memory of Empire in the UK and the unaddressed legacies of colonial rule, such as, in Caroline Elkins’s phrase, its “legac[ies] of violence”.

Textual-Sexual-Spiritual:Artistic Practice and Other Rituals as Queer Becoming and Beyond

Guest Editor: Dr. Jocelyn E. Marshall (Emerson College)

This issue of Rejoinder addresses the relationships between text/artwork, sexuality, and spirituality to navigate tensions of being and becoming. As E. L. McCallum and Mikko Tuhkanen have argued, the idea of ‘‘queer becoming” involves not only never “straightening up” and “flying right,” but also the possibility of “one’s becoming something other than queer” (2011, 10-11). How do our approaches to “becoming” allow us to cultivate community, extend work, shape praxis, guide pedagogy, and beyond?
