The Ages of Batman: Essays on the Dark Knight

Joseph J. Darowski
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 10, 2022

The editor of The Ages of Batman: Essays on the Dark Knight is seeking abstracts for essays that could be included in the upcoming collection. The essays should examine the relationships between the DC comic book adventures of Batman and the social era when those comic books were published. Analysis may demonstrate how Batman’s comic books stories and the creators who produced the comics embrace, reflect, or critique aspects of their contemporary culture. This will be a companion volume to existing essay collections in the series that have already focused on Superman, Wonder Woman, the X-Men, the Avengers, Iron Man, Hulk, the Justice League, Flash, and Black Panther.

Being Undocumented and Belonging in US Ethnic Literature

updated: 
Monday, November 1, 2021 - 1:44pm
Sherry Johnson/Society for the Study of Multi-Ethnic Literature of the United States (MELUS)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 14, 2022

Understandings of what it means to be undocumented remain a part of critical discussions in the US -- whether about immigration status or a citizen’s sex designation or voter eligibility on official documents, for example. MELUS invites individual paper proposals that explore what it means to be undocumented -- legally, culturally or otherwise -- in fiction, memoir, or poetry by ethnic American writers. Specifically, we are interested in papers that consider how authors (re)imagine what it means to be undocumented -- and how intersections of identities of historically excluded populations function to further understanding of being undocumented in such works.

Plural / Pluriel
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 30, 2022

Pluralism is a very central but elusive contemporary value. Pluralism is the belief that diversity is beneficial to society. Most of us would agree, but what does diversity exactly mean? How to measure it and tell whether a society is more or less diverse?

Cultural pluralism, political pluralism and value pluralism all have slightly different meanings, but they all share the belief that coexistence of diverse opinions, ways of life and value systems is enriching for all members of a society.

Thinking about literature to write history : common paths, tensions, and encounters between historical and literary writings

updated: 
Monday, November 1, 2021 - 8:52am
Revue Post-Scriptum
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, November 15, 2021

This Post-Scriptum’s conference wishes to address different ways in which the relationships between history and literature are thought out as sources of tensions, interrogations, and mutual influences. Two questions underlie this perspective: how can literary texts deal with historical events, and, conversely, in what way(s) works of historiography borrow elements from literature, both formal and narrative? Hence, problems that are related to these questions can be addressed. These problems concern the theoretical, formal, narratological, epistemological, etc. consequences of the encounters between history and literature.

Media, art and literature in the late-twentieth and early twenty-first century have been inundated with the memories and portrayals of wars, upheavals, declarations, political persecutions, colonial struggles and religious/ideological wars and terror acts. The spectacles of the industrial and global world as well as digitalised life, ruthless socio-economic dynamics, widening rich/poor gap, generational discrepancies and pandemics have left lasting marks on the human psyche and fostered art and literature to tackle the stigmas and impacts of the long century on contemporary life. Dystopias and anti-utopias of the modern world also made the past a space for (social, political, artistic) exploration, reconsideration, reclamation and reconciliation.
