Call for Chapters and Visual Essays on Images&Archives: Photography and film
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

ICNOVA book collection - a Portuguese editor - prepares an electronic book that gathers some of the texts presented at the Images & Archives seminar in 2019. The proposal intends to deepen the relationships between historical, artistic, anthropological and cultural research on photographs and films preserved in archives, both public and private. The documentary features of these images, their contexts and forms of re-contextualization, exhibition and display, the multiple histories with which they relate and the power relationships that produced and are reproduced by them are among the themes we wish to address, in the context of the "material turn" in the social sciences and the arts.

About the Conference

The social exclusion, economic marginalization and cultural subjugation of Indigenous people are pervasive in all regions across the globe due to colonialism and neocolonialism. Even today, Indigenous people continue to struggle to protect their rights to culture, community, heritage, and land. This international conference on Indigenous Studies will allow like-minded researchers, scholars and academicians to explore new avenues in Indigenous Studies. The conference will enable participants to discuss current issues within Indigenous Studies while emphasizing new ways to empower and work collaboratively with Indigenous communities around the world.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 1, 2021

The months of May and June, 2020, saw unprecedented global protests against anti-Black racism and calls for a more equitable and just society that recognizes the humanity and lives of people of African descent. While these protests initially originated across the United States, protesters around the world quickly galvanized in support of these issues organizing events in a growing number of countries, including Canada, Mexico, Haiti, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, South Africa, Australia and Japan. This has been an important moment for Black scholars, activists, and cultural producers everywhere—as well as their friends and allies—to reflect not only on the crisis that has marked Black lives, but also on our future possibilities.

'Floyding' Institutional Racism

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 26, 2020

Intellectus invites submissions of research articles, interviews and book reviews that are specifically or broadly related to the focus: "'Floyding' Institutional Racism"

Following the death of George Floyd on May 25, 2020, there are protests, toppling and removal of iconic statues relating to slavery and racism. Despite some acts of reprisals, there seems to be an overwhelming acceptance of the protests and that there is an urgent need for reforms against systemic injustice to black people and/or people of colour. In memory of George Floyd, we refer to the various shows of acceptance as Floyding.

Decolonising Science Fiction

updated: 
Sunday, June 28, 2020 - 6:00pm
Foundation: The International Review of Science Fiction
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 4, 2021

In the wake of the worldwide protests after the killing of George Floyd, and the toppling of statues implicated in the legacy of the slave trade, we propose a special issue of Foundation on the topic of ‘decolonising science fiction’. As John Rieder and others have argued, the emergence of sf as a genre is embedded in colonial discourses of the late nineteenth century. The pursuit of new frontiers in outer space, within the Earth or under the oceans not only mirrored ‘the scramble for Africa’ but was also informed by the racialist and pseudo-scientific ideologies of the period. In more recent years, authors such as N.K. Jemisin, Jeannette Ng and Tade Thompson have sought to confront sf with the racist legacy of its origins.

How do we understand dispossession and subjections that result from imposed demarcations, displacements, and deprivations? How do we see the dispossessed or subjugated as re-articulated in literary works, and what functions can those re-articulations of present/spectral absences play in the literary analysis of the dispossessed territories or bodies, and beyond?
