Representations of Violence in Literature, Culture and Arts

updated: 
Tuesday, May 11, 2021 - 12:28pm
Osmaniye Korkut Ata University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 16, 2021

In his foreword to World Report on Violence and Health, published by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2002, Nelson Mandela states that “the twentieth century will be remembered as a century marked by violence” (Krug et.al., 2002, “Foreword”).  Now we are nearly at the end of the first quarter of the twenty-first century, but violence still permeates in our lives at various levels. Various forms of violence occurring at levels of interpersonal, self-directed, collective, state, warfare, child and youth violence, intimate partner violence, environmental violence, and animal violence lay bare the complexity and pervasiveness of the phenomenon, yet it also brings along the necessity to discuss violence from multiple perspectives. 

Science and Technology in Popular Culture

updated: 
Tuesday, May 11, 2021 - 12:28pm
Northeast Popular Culture Association (NEPCA)
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, August 1, 2021

The Science and Technology area of NEPCA encourages proposals for presentations that explore the relation of science and technology (broadly defined) to popular culture and to American culture. We are particularly interested in putting science, technology, culture, and the humanities in conversation with one another. How are science and technology represented in popular culture? How do we use popular culture to understand science and technology? And how do we use science and technology to understand narratives, art, and culture? What do we gain, what do we risk by approaching science and technology from the lens of the humanities, the humanities from the lens of science, by putting these disciplines in conversation with each other?

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, May 10, 2021

Food and food practices constitute a significant part of national identity. People derive their sense of belonging through food cultures, which embody the memories of community and group membership. Eating Culture: The Poetics and Politics of Food posits cooking as an act that “performs cultural memory” (Doring, Heide & Muhleisen 2003) and reinforces communal relationships. While the Covid-19 pandemic that began in 2020 forced everyone to practice social distancing, shutting all social gatherings and communal activities. Food is one of the few things, which nevertheless aided in the continuance of social interaction.

The Banshee is the leading magazine for women who scream.*

It is a journal for women who scream, by women who scream, about women who scream, and about screaming in all its forms. Screams of laughter; screams of rage, fear, and delight. A journal for supernatural yelllers, emphatic prophets of doom, and all those who adhere to the Japanese theme-park credo in this time of respiratory pandemic: please scream inside your hearts.

 

If you scream inside your heart, or anywhere else, please write for The Banshee.

 

Women in the World: Shaping Identity Through Objects and Space

In texts representing women and their lives, the physical spaces and items a woman has access to or desires, are often indicative of her social position, emotions, and/or psychological state. In the well-known example of Samuel Richardson’s Pamela for instance, owning and being able to wear her mistress’ clothes is an indication that Pamela is socially higher than the other servants in the household. Her access to these clothes is also read (by those around her) as a sign that she is morally compromised; she in turn sees this access as part of her suffering.

MMLA Writing Across the Curriculum

updated: 
Friday, April 30, 2021 - 10:36am
Alejandra Ortega / MMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, May 1, 2021

The Midwest Modern Language Association’s 2021 conference theme is “Cultures of Collectivity.” The conference will take place November 4-7 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

The Writing Across the Curriculum permanent session will explore this theme by considering how writing pedagogy can encourage students to make connections between their sense of self and the community at large. Academia is rarely limited to the space of the classroom. Often lines between the individual student, the university space, and the local community blur to facilitate a deeper engagement with learning.

Topics might include, but are not limited to:
