deadline for submissions:

Venti: Air, Experience, and Aesthetics invokes both the number ‘twenty’ and ‘the winds.’ Conceived in the year 2020, the journal is a forum for discussions centered on the year’s foregrounding of air, its related themes, and historical, interdisciplinary, and critical resonances. Ventiasks: how do we become aware of something invisible and of things that are always in the air — such as the air itself? Investigating this query in a series of thematic issues, Venti explores the indexical qualities of air and our awareness of it through effects and affects.

CALL FOR CHAPTERS ‘STARS AND FRANCHISES’ EDITED COLLECTION

updated: 
Friday, May 20, 2022 - 1:12pm

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, July 30, 2022

This edited collection seeks to examine the intersections between two significant media systems: stardom and the franchise. It will explore the convergences, tensions and inter-dependences that star-driven texts and franchise cultures have constantly negotiated within the entertainment industry, on a global, historical and multiplatform scale. It aims to analyse franchise sites and strategies as significant nexus where an understanding of stars is created, managed and interpreted, and to analyse the place and value of the star to media franchise production.

Sustainability Culture and the Sense of Belongingness to the Land, 2022 International Conference on Sustainability Culture

Theodoor Richard / National Chung Hsing University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 15, 2022

Our Call for Papers focuses on an interdisciplinary study of sustainability culture and the Agroecological Transition. In our research at NCHU/IAC, we find that the same core question arises over and time again: how is it possible that even though we already have all the knowledge and technology required to live and farm sustainably, we do not seem to be able to fully achieve this? We postulate that the answers are found in how we form our culture and how we relate to the technology that gives us our comforts. Which values do we have, how do we think the world works, and do we really want to be sustainable, no matter what?

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, October 1, 2022

After the New Oxford Shakespeare credited Christopher Marlowe as co-author of 1, 2, and 3 Henry VI in 2016, Shakespeare’s short-lived contemporary has drawn a wave of renewed interest. Since then, new editions of Doctor Faustus, The Massacre at Paris, and The Jew of Malta have appeared, three collections of essays have been published, and a well-attended international Marlowe conference was held in Wittenberg, Germany. Marlowe’s plays continue to be a staple of contemporary non-Shakespearean performance with recent celebrated productions at the RSC’s Swan Theatre and the National Theatre.

Special Issue of The Hemingway Review on Hemingway, Blackness, and Whiteness

updated: 
Friday, May 20, 2022 - 12:33pm
The Hemingway Review
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, August 29, 2022

 

This special issue of The Hemingway Review aims to deepen the conversation about Hemingway, Blackness, and Whiteness. Recognizing Hemingway was taught and expected to perform White Supremacy and Privilege, we call on scholars to demonstrate ways to identify and make meaning of racism and anti-racism in Hemingway’s work. What can we learn from Hemingway about the performance of Whiteness and what use is that knowledge? How have Black writers engaged Hemingway, both in his lifetime and later? What questions about Blackness and Whiteness in the United States should we be asking of Hemingway’s public persona, Hemingway’s writing, and our teaching of both?

The Body and the Human

Southeastern Medieval Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, July 7, 2022

In his Timaeus, Plato hypothesizes that human beings participate in the same world-soul that animates the cosmos, a microcosm of the wider macrocosm. This analogy proved stimulating for the inhabitants of the Middle Ages and inspired them to explore the connections between the body and the wider universe, as well as the relationship between bodies. This conference likewise encourages scholars across the fields of medieval studies to examine the body, the human, and the spaces in-between.
