Tracing its roots to a long history of philosophical discourse, identity stands as one of the most intricate and ubiquitous concepts within the large debates of human and social sciences. It is taken for granted in everyday life and assumed to be an all-inclusive determinant of empirical and virtual entities; yet, obscure when it comes to marking out its essence as a referential determinant and delineating the shaping politics of its concretizations. The ambiguity and paradox of identity stem from the contradictory dimensions it encompasses, entailing at the same time a sense of similitude yet difference, uniqueness yet commonness, and independence yet reliance.

Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) have played a pivotal role in higher education in the United States of America by serving as institutions of excellence and opportunity for African American students and others wishing to obtain an education. HBCUs have a rich history of fostering a culture of academic achievement, leadership development, and empowerment. In recent years, discussions around diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging have brought a renewed focus on the value that HBCUs bring to higher education and their unique contributions to preparing students for the ever-changing demands of the workforce.

 

Call for book chapters - Critical Food Cultures from the Global South

Sunday, June 30, 2024

Usually, the narratives around food habits and culinary practices are structured around individual tastes. However, the narratives can be and need to be structured much beyond individual tastes. Historically, it has been observed that individual and collective food habits and culinary practices are driven by various social, cultural, gendered, sexual, racial, caste, geographical, commercial, and political factors. These factors provoke us to go beyond the stereotypical scientific narratives of consumption and unpack the various social dynamics and power structures that are associated with our daily food habits and culinary practices.

Studies in World Cinema
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, October 1, 2024

Since the 1990s, the impact of transnational flows in technology, finance and knowledge have significantly altered the trajectories of filmmaking from South-Asian countries. Among the new developments is indigenous cinema, in a multitude of linguistic varieties and cultural diversities. South Asia is home to several indigenous communities, with India alone having 104 million Adivasi communities across the nation, as per the 2011 census data (Adivasi being the collective term for indigenous groups in India). These communities share certain features, their heterogeneity being the most striking. Many of these communities belong to the margins, with minimal resources and social capital to ensure their wellbeing.

National Narratives of the Far Right: The New American Mythopoeia

updated: 
Monday, May 13, 2024 - 2:37pm
Laura Jeffries, PhD
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, June 30, 2024

This year’s South Atlantic Modern Language Association (SAMLA) conference theme, Seen and Unseen, considers how the perceptual lens influences our vision of the world around us. All national narratives are iterative projects that never quite arrive at the truth, but the (re)mainstreaming of far-right ideologies across American society has engendered a collection of false histories and mythopoetic frameworks shaped in their image, often aggressively vying for space in the public imagination. This session invites papers and multimedia presentations examining the development, dissemination, or impact of alternate visions/versions of any component of the American story and the principles that have animated it.

Pacifism - Special Issue and Book - Call for Abstracts

updated: 
Monday, May 13, 2024 - 1:32pm
Angelaki: journal of the theoretical humanities (Routledge)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 31, 2024

Edited by John Kinsella and Nicholas Birns

Abstract of c. 500 words by the end of May 2024. For publication April 2025. See below for full details.

The issue is concerned with pacifism as both a mode of conceptualising and also interacting with the world. Non-violence is a characteristic of various spiritual and secular modes of both maintaining peace and also enacting conflict resolution, and this issue will have a strong focus on these agencies, but further, pacifism as a system of perceiving and interacting with the world, as a ‘complete’ philosophy will be considered.

PAMLA 2024 CFP "Work in Multi-Ethnic American Literature (co-sponsored by MELUS) "

updated: 
Tuesday, May 7, 2024 - 12:51pm
Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association 2024 Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, June 16, 2024

This allied session on work in multi-ethnic literature of the United States (co-sponsored by MELUS) invites papers that explore work as a component of identity formation, especially as it intersects with gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, cultural identity, and citizenship. In the spirit of Moishe Postone’s antiproductivist Marxism, this panel is particularly interested in papers that present a “critique of labor in capitalism” rather than a “critique of capitalism from the standpoint of labor.” While papers that engage with work broadly from the traditional Marxist position are welcome, we are particularly excited about scholarship that theorizes work itself.

In a period of tumultuous changes like the ones brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic, the rise of far-right governments, racism, and international tensions caused by the war in Ukraine and Gaza, a great reckoning is happening in the Western cultural context, especially with regard to the Atlantic and Transatlantic world. No nation has undergone more rapid and sometimes contradictory transformations than the US, showing tensions between its foundational narratives and counternarratives rising from its too often neglected socio-cultural realities. Culturally embedded American ideals have always emphasized a single unifying narrative capable of synthesizing the plurality of voices on US soil.
