Food, more than a material substance is also a cultural expression handed down from generations to generations. In most societies, the older people pass on their knowledge of food and what constitutes “healthy or good” food to their new members. In this sense, the idea of food also marks a society’s relation with the larger environment- human and biotic. But, food also defines what is “within” from what is “without,” so that culinary skills, inherited through years of practice could be transferred to those who make up the members of a legitimate community.

Special Issue on "Modern and Contemporary Irish Writing"

Humanities
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, February 28, 2021

Dear Colleagues,

We seek original, previously unpublished essays for a Special Issue of Humanities on the topic modern and contemporary Irish writing.

Irish writing has emerged, especially since the turn of the last century, as a space of compelling and varied production. While we remain mindful of Emer Nolan’s important proviso that the Republic of Ireland “now appropriates all ‘success’ (including literary ‘success’) as evidence of its own dynamism, tolerance, and inclusiveness,” we are nevertheless interested in examining the ways in which historical and emergent forms of expression have combined in contemporary Ireland to produce this present moment of innovation and compelling creativity.

    The Middle East is a highly dynamic and strategically located region that is experiencing numerous challenges and opportunities in contemporary times. Political revisionism, religious fundamentalism, major regional and international powers foreign intervention, the rise of radicalism and terrorism, endeavor to reshape the political systems, replace them with a one- model political, social, and economic system led to slowdowns surrounding the decline in global energy supply chains and people-led protests against corrupt regimes. These are just a few variables affecting the region.

Wednesday, September 30, 2020

The Routledge Handbook of Refugee Narratives, currently under contract with Routledge, presents a transnational and interdisciplinary study of refugee narratives. In response to the oversaturation of sociological, governmental, and journalistic narratives about refugees, this anthology features academic essays that examine the narratives refugees tell to, for, and about themselves. Engaging a rich variety of genres—fiction, autobiography, prose, poetry, graphic novels, film, photography, performance, social media—the chapters will analyze how conditions of forced displacement and encounters with different asylum regimes shape, but do not circumscribe, the form and content of refugee cultural productions.

These topics shall be explored under the following themes:

400 years ago, the Mayflower arrived on Patuxet land and established the settler colony of Plymouth. Just two years later, the Patuxet peoples were pronounced extinct. Despite or due to this settler violence, the Plymouth colony gave rise to the American tradition of “Thanksgiving” and the mythology of Europeans building a ‘City upon a Hill’ in America.

Tuesday, September 15, 2020

According to the United Nations, more than 70 million people have been displaced worldwide. The UN monitors statistics on internally displaced persons, refugees, and asylum-seekers, and within those groups there are nuanced experiences of displacement based on gender, race, sexual expression, class, religion, and ability. Experience of forced displacement—whether because of civil unrest, natural disaster, government-induced development, or climate change—is more and more a shared experience, and the narratives of these experiences can both bring together and challenge us. The recent global Coronavirus pandemic affects us all, and yet it exacerbates the inequities in medical care, services, and ability to adhere to stay-at-home mandates.

The Gendered Arab

Salma Yassine & Vicky Panossian
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, November 30, 2020

The Arab notion of identity, defined by traditional gender roles, categorizes the binary subsets of the patriarchal understanding of performative “male” and “female” facades. Gender remains vaguely defined in the Arab world due to layers of taboo and stigma; untraditional gender roles and practices result in a halt of the fragile cyclical reality within the Arab realm. In recent years, the academic world began to decode expressions of gender within the Arab world; however, the gendered Arab identity has been fundamentally stereotyped. In this edited volume, we venture into various subsets of the 21st century Arab identity that pertain to deciphering the gendered Arab.

The College English Association welcomes proposals for presentations on the general conference theme: Justice. The College English Association’s 52nd national conference will be held in Birmingham, Alabama, where the freedom ensured by civil rights has been contested by the government in both the past and present. Birmingham’s notoriety as a focal point of the Civil Rights Movement, including the Birmingham Campaign, the imprisonment of Martin Luther King, Jr., and the writing of his “Letter from Birmingham Jail” is matched by the city’s renown for forging steel, founding Veteran’s Day, and hosting the USA’s second-oldest drag queen pageant.

Few people know about Kelly Thomas, a homeless man diagnosed with schizophrenia who, in 2011, was beaten to death in Orange County by six police officers. Thomas was unarmed. All the officers were acquitted. The way we treat those with mental illness has become of interest to humanities scholars, particularly those working in Disability Studies. Margaret Price’s brave research, in Mad at School, rallies against the exclusion of those with mental disability from academic discourse (and academic life). Scholars of early modern disability have explored various neurodiversity in theater, from figurations of wise fools to imaginings of mad revengers.

In 2005, Kevin Howley described community media as “popular and strategic interventions into contemporary media culture committed to the democratization of media structures, forms, and practices.”[1] In revisiting this definition 15 years later, the holistic aim of this special issue is to interrogate shifts in various community media making environments brought about in the past decade.

Images of the Mafia

Wednesday, September 30, 2020

Call for Roundtable Participants

This roundtable will illustrate how the image of the mafia has been romanticized, falsified, glorified, or held up to historical accuracy in film, television or literature.

The image of the mafia and how it has been appropriated into cultural studies as a romantic business where loyalty and friendship drive a way of life, has contorted our view of its reality. The many images of the mafia we see ranging from filmic representations of the good-hearted mafia Don like Vito Corleone to the fun-loving, soldier like Henry Hill to the flawed but honorable aging Junior Soprano help situate an idea of what it means to be part of this thing called the mafia.
