Tuesday, January 31, 2023

For nearly two decades, the “antisocial thesis” has enthralled queer theoretical thought, permeating a variety of debates surrounding relationality, sexuality, gender, race, psychoanalysis, and temporality. Christened by Robert L. Caserio during an infamous 2005 MLA panel, the antisocial thesis, Caserio elaborates, described a “decade of explorations of queer unbelonging” positioned against an intensifying “gay rage for normalizing sociability.” As Robyn Wiegman warns, however, the antisocial thesis “is not ‘a’ thesis.

Reading HBO’s Euphoria - Edited Collection

 

In recent years, there has been no more controversial TV series than HBO’s Euphoria. Adapted from an Israeli production by the same name, by Sam Levinson, its explicit portrayal of Gen Z addiction, sexual violence, and identity crisis has attracted cult devotion and open-mouthed condemnation. The furore around Euphoria’s portrayals of heroin, nudity and mental health have obscured just how complex a take on our culture this high school drama really is. Peek behind the social-media-mirroring of its tone, and you find a work of deep sophistication.

Present Futures

 

The present is great with the future.

—Gottfried Leibniz, 1703

 

In times when the present seems to be facing an imminent – and immanent – crisis, we want to take a step forward and investigate how various concepts and imaginaries of the future can be made fruitful for the present. The 15th issue of On_Culture seeks to explore forms of present futures – futures that manifest in the present and a/effect it – to provide new approaches and critical perspectives to thinking about the future in the study of culture.

Michelle M. Sauer
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, November 1, 2022

I am editing the Companion to Sexuality of the Medieval West with Jenny Bledsoe for Arc Humanities. The projected publication date is early 2024. This volume is intended to be an update of the classical Bullough and Brundage volume, with a more inclusive approach.

We are looking someone to write on North Africa. The deadline for submission can be somewhat negotiable, but May 2023 would be ideal. The essay should 6,000-6,500 words, and use a broad approach rather than a specific argument (e.g., handbook style). Chicago style citations as appropriate. Use of images possible as well. All essays peer reviewed.

Please contact me for further details and/or with questions.

As the pandemic has made it palpable, anxieties can turn into pervasive affects with detrimental effects on the psychological well-being of the individual. To be anxious is to be on edge, not only psychologically, but also ontologically and existentially; or to use Heidegger’s terms, it is to be in a state of “groundless floating” (1996).

Continually being transformed, the humanities have expanded into a discursive field of trends, movements, and methodologies that have appropriated the thoughts, ideas, and viewpoints from social and other sciences by transgressing and crossing traditional boundaries, limitations, and demarcations. The humanities which traditionally include the study of disciplines such as language, literature, arts, history, culture, and philosophy rarely prove to be “disciplined” as each one often tends to encroach upon prescribed and reserved territories of other disciplines not traditionally humanities labeled.
