The Global South
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, June 1, 2021

The editors of this special issue of the Global South are seeking contributors whose work engages with questions of incarceration and movements for resistance and abolition. As many major works regarding the development of mass incarceration in the United States draw explicit links between the development of the prison and the legacies of U.S. slavery and Jim Crow practices, this issue is, rather (or also), interested in examining the development of the prison-industrial complex through a global south perspective.

Constant transformation has been the norm in the new digital media environment since its inception. During the 2020 health crisis, the impact of this ever-changing digital world in our daily lives has been especially notable. Due to quarantine measures, the only opportunity to interact with friends and to consume culture was to rely on social networks, streaming services and video conferencing softwares. Web-based cultural activities have affected people’s relationships with cyberspace: many have visited museums, seen award ceremonies, and even been to concerts online. In other words, we are never disconnected from the Internet (DeNardis 2020).

DEADLINE EXTENDED: FEBRUARY 1, 2021

 

Seeking submissions for a Critical Insights volume on Joseph Heller’s Catch-22 under contract with Salem/Grey House Publishers. Known as being a satirical, anti-war novel that initiated the eponymous phrase regarding paradoxical situations, Catch-22 was originally published in 1961. Catch-22 is appreciated for its dark humor, use of flashbacks, contorted chronology, countercultural sensibilities, and bizarre language. With current trends and political climate considered, it is time to revisit this classic text for a contemporary audience.

Recent political transatlantic events, from the culmination of the Brexit to the attempt of coup in Washington D.C. in January, demand new interpretations of the declining role of populist political formations of the 21st century. On the one hand, Trump's America aspired to the establishment of a totalitarian regime that would counterbalance the emergence of China as a global political leader; on the other, the negotiations leading to the Brexit revealed a kind of British exceptionalism that is not at all new in relation to continental Europe.

We invite proposals for papers exploring aspects of “Hawthorne and Fatherhood.” This may include, but is not limited to: Hawthorne as father; Julian’s and Rose’s memories of their father; missing fathers (as in Hawthorne’s own); father stand-ins, such as grandfather in "Grandfather’s Chair"; Dimmesdale as deadbeat father or Chillingworth as want-to-be father, leaving his money to Pearl; Coverdale and Hollingsworth avoiding fatherhood, though the latter wants to be some great paternal figure; barren men and husbands, as in The House of Seven Gables; or other fathers in Hawthorne’s shorter fiction.
