The Politics of Food in the United States

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, June 30, 2021

Food in the United States is framed by myths and stereotypes. The myth of America as a land of plenty, embodied by the “first” Thanksgiving, is far from the reality the first settlers encountered, and creates an image of harmonious relations between Native Americans and New England colonists that belies the violence of colonization. Today, the image of the “fast food nation” masks the diversity of local cuisines and the rich history of food and foodways in the US.

Metamorphosis: Transformations across Time, Culture & Identity

University of Glasgow College of Arts Postgraduate Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, June 1, 2021

Registration is now open for the annual University of Glasgow College of Arts PGR Conference.

Metamorphosis refers to a dramatic change in the form, structure or character of an entity, distinctly characterised as a process whereby the old is subsumed, absorbed or self-devoured to provide the substance to forge the new—but how is this concept experienced in contemporary culture?

How does metamorphosis materialise in research practice, academia, social justice, or identity? What social, political or cultural forces engender metamorphosis, and how have these transformations been received? Is metamorphosis creative or destructive? Tangible or intangible? Abrupt or fluid?

updated:

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, July 1, 2021

Unsettling Sexuality: Eighteenth-Century Queer Horizons invites proposals for chapters that trace, explore, and imagine new interdisciplinary horizons in eighteenth-century queer studies. This collection of essays primarily seeks to revisit archives of gender, sex, and sexuality in order to visualize the ruptures and fissures of previous queer studies scholarship and trends that are just emerging--some of which are described below. We are especially interested in essays that imagine other queer worlds, outside of a British or continental home, to better flesh out global explorations and conceptions of queerness that are not beholden to colonial parameters and definitions.

Friday, June 18, 2021

Contemporary depictions of the long eighteenth century – whether drawn from historic sources or responding imaginatively to the era’s multifarious legacies – regularly captivate TV, film and theatre audiences and gamers alike. Increasingly, scholarly biographies provide the basis for big budget biopics, eighteenth-century narratives are adapted in new and experimental ways, objects from museum collections are replicated in cultures of fandom, and academics are invited onto sets as consultants.

MMLA 2021: Countering the Culture in Contemporary Fiction

updated: 
Thursday, April 22, 2021 - 10:48am
Midwest Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, May 1, 2021

Marginalized groups may be contrary to the dominant culture within a society through their very own existence. In cultures where those who reinforce divisions may seek to ostracize the Other by portraying them in a negative light, counter-hegemonic representations of the marginalized can be revolutionary. This panel will examine how non-dominant cultures in contemporary literature are depicted in the context of the dominant. 

 

Central questions include:

  • What makes something (e.g. an action, a person's/group's identity) within a dominant culture subversive?

  • What are the benefits and repercussions of acting against the collective conscience?
