Unsettling Sexuality: Eighteenth-Century Queer Horizons

Jeremy Chow (Bucknell) & Shelby Johnson (FAU)
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.

MMLA 2021: Countering the Culture in Contemporary Fiction

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?

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 1, 2023

The Journal of Literary Multilingualism explores texts written in non-native languages, in a mix of languages and alternating languages. It examines a wide range of literary practices from around the globe broadly defined by multilingual and multicultural situations. The phenomenon of literary multilingualism is as old as literature itself but has received more scholarly attention as migration and globalization have increased in recent years. As the first international journal devoted entirely to this emerging interdisciplinary field, it offers a forum for cutting-edge research across the humanities and social sciences.

We Did Not Move to the Cities to Die: The Changing Urban Indian, PAMLA (sponsored by MELUS)

The publication of There There by Cheyanne/Arapaho writer Tommy Orange in 2018 and Sacred Smokes by Lakota writer Theo Van Alst in 2019 marks a shift in Indigenous stories. Unlike so many Native texts before, Oranges places his story not in Indian Country but in the urban setting of Oakland. The figure of the Urban Indian has had negative connotations within Native communities as a mark of assimilation and dilution of Indigenous culture since the figure is removed from traditional homelands and communities. Orange and other Indigenous authors, however, are publishing stories that challenge this connotation and reimagine the Urban Indian.
