Critical reflections on pandemic politics: left-wing, feminist and anti-racist critiques

updated: 
Thursday, January 20, 2022 - 5:05am
The Institute for Cultural Inquiry (ICON) at Utrecht University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 11, 2022

As various formats of lockdown to contain the Covid-19 virus in many nations across the world continue into their second year, there is an urgent need to critically analyze this situation and its historical backdrop from more traditionally left-oriented perspectives. This urgent need is likewise required in light of the more recent global vaccine rollouts and various digital health pass mandates that have followed as a supposed ‘way out’ of the lockdown logic. Such lockdowns, health pass mandates, and blanket vaccine rollouts clearly attempt to posit some kind of ‘public good’ or ‘solidarity’ over more individualist considerations; sentiments which on the surface appear to be benevolent and even left-oriented.

Tuesday, March 1, 2022

Research on the premodern intersection of race, gender, and sexuality has steadily increased as a result of the efforts of a diverse group of scholars working across traditional periodization and geographic limits. Nevertheless, a great deal of work remains to be done to understand the many varieties of ways such aspects of identities intersected and were mobilized or challenged in the marking of difference.

Conversations concerned with borders often address the extent of geopolitics, the anthropocene, and the techno-industrial. Yet, “the meaning of the word border has progressively changed from a fact of nature to a cultural, political, and ideological product of human will (Power 6-13; Harvey). Natural frontiers do not exist either in a topographical or in a linguistic sense, and the self-conscious linking of place and identity is quite a modern phenomenon” (Spiridon 376).

80 Years and Beyond: The Past, Present, and Future of Canadian Comics

updated: 
Friday, January 7, 2022 - 7:35pm
Canadian Literature
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 31, 2022

The Canadian Parliament passed the War Exchange Conservation Act (WECA) late in 1940 to preserve its currency for the war effort by limiting the importation of nonessential goods. Periodicals, including popular American comic books, were one casualty. Within a few months, Canadian artists and entrepreneurs responded by launching a domestic comic book industry often regarded as Canada’s golden age of comics. This industry produced four publishing companies and six years of original Canadian comics production, including Robin Hood Comics and Triumph-Adventure Comics, which featured Adrian Dingle’s Nelvana of the Northern Lights, one of the earliest female superheroes in comics.

Critical Race Theory in 2022 - Deadline in 3 weeks!

updated: 
Friday, January 7, 2022 - 2:30pm
Journal of Critical Race Inquiry
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 31, 2021

This special issue of the Journal for Critical Race Inquiry aims to theorize, historicize, and challenge contemporary misreadings of and antagonisms toward Critical Race Theory. Last summer, an attack on Critical Race Theory was launched in a series of articles in the conservative magazine City Journal. The attack gained momentum when the articles’ author appeared on the Tucker Carlson show and drew the attention of then-President Trump. “Critical Race Theory” came to signify and conflate everything from diversity training and employment equity to critical thinking about white privilege or the history of racism and colonialism in the United States to campaigns to defund the police.

We invite prospective contributions for the forthcoming Routledge Companion to Cultural Texts and the Nation, an exciting new addition to the growing, dynamic book series

 

Despite robust discourse on globalization and a perhaps momentary preoccupation with post-nationalism toward the end of the 20th century, nation and nationalism continue their tenacious hold on our imaginations—a hold that, given the state of global politics, surely deserves further and renewed explanation, unpacking, and critique.

Saturday, January 22, 2022

Twenty-five years after Gloria Anzaldúa published Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza, the U.S.–Mexico border is still “una herida abierta where the Third World grates against the first and bleeds.” As Anzaldúa would have predicted, this “bleed[ing]” is both violent and vital, destructive and constructive; anytime “a scab forms it hemorrhages again, the lifeblood of two worlds merging to form a third country—a border culture.” However, in ways Anzaldúa failed to see, this “blood” does not flow from a single Chicanx “country,” but rather through two settler states, dozens of Native nations, and countless migrant communities: the “blood,” in other words, does not flow from a single “border culture,” but rather through a range of border cul
