Queering Disney: History of The Walt Disney Company and the Queer Community

Wednesday, August 31, 2022

With Disney’s initial apathetic response to the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill which recently passed in the state of Florida, it is time to shed light on Disney’s complex relationship with the LGBTQIA2S+ community. Recently, there have been works which briefly discuss the relationship of queerness and Disney, such as Sean Griffin’s Tinker Bells and Evil Queens (2000), Melanie S. Kohnen Queer Representation, Visibility, and Race (2016), Jennifer Sandlin and Julie Garlen’s edited collection Disney, Culture, and Curriculum (2016), and Joseph Brennan’s edited collection Queerbaiting and Fandom (2019). However, the queer artist/contributor has yet to be the main topic of discussion.

"Minimalisms Now: Race, Affect, and Aesthetics"

Sunday, July 24, 2022

Less is more. Unclutter the mind. Spark joy. More than a generation has passed since Columbia University’s 1988 Summer Writers’ Festival brought together a roundtable for “Throwing Dirt on the Grave of Minimalism,” but it seems minimalisms are alive and well both in aesthetics and in lifestyles in the twenty-first century. What are the forms, styles, and genres of minimalism today? What is their relation to the heyday of minimalist sculpture, music, literature, and architecture in the 1960s through 1980s? Who are the practitioners of minimalism, and how are various minimalisms gendered, racialized, sexualized, and classed? And under what social, political, and economic conditions are these practitioners drawn to minimalism now?

The Hidden Queer: Queer Approaches to Disney's Fairy Tale Films

updated:

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

This edited collection would focus on the application of queer theory and queer approaches to Disney films that are infamous for queerbaiting, queer coding, and queer pandering, as well as the parodies of Disney films that stem from this. 

Previous works such as Kay Turner and Pauline Greenhill’s The Transgressive Tales (2012) looks into the queer retellings of the Brothers Grimms' edited collection of tales. This collection seeks to go beyond the Brothers Grimm and showcase queer approaches to the Disney fairy tale. With the 'Don't Say Gay' Bill and the apathetic response, it is time to shed light on this academic area and the link between Disney fairy tale films and the queer community.

Cultures of Popularity: Understanding Popular Culture in India

updated: 
Sunday, July 10, 2022 - 1:07am
Journal of Comparative Literature and Aesthetics
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 15, 2022

Popular culture has been a rising area of interest in India, with dedicated departments of Game Studies, Media Studies, Visual arts and culture and many more. In the contemporary context, where the world has been miniaturised into the palm of our hands, with information available at the tip of our fingers, it becomes more important to question how we can include popular culture into the larger domain of academia, both in Humanities and in the Social Sciences. The Popular Culture Association, established in the USA in 1971, has taken the study and research in this domain to new heights.

Disruptive Labor: Early Modern Gender, Capital, and Illicit Work

Disruptive Labor: Early Modern Gender, Capital, and Illicit Work interrogates how some labor is denigrated and yet simultaneously supportive of the formation of the capitalistic markets upon which European nations expanded empires. By focusing on how these patriarchal societies see specific types of work as gendered, this edition explores how the gendering of labor establishes dynamic markets as either culturally sanctioned or illegitimate and, in turn, grapples with how cultural approbation undergirds economic growth.

**Please note the updated deadline for submissions***

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.

Radical changes have been felt nowhere as intensely as in Berlin throughout the long twentieth century: shifting from Weimar liberties to Nazi oppression, and from Cold War fragmentation to an unsteady reunification in 1990 and after, Berlin has often transformed into a space in flux focalizing emergence. Many texts like to channel Berlin's role as a precarious playground of transgressive unsettlement.
