deadline for submissions: 
Monday, March 1, 2021

"Troubling Topics, Sacred Texts": Sacred texts continue to inspire a diversity of scholarship that seeks to transform the ancient into the contemporary, the remote into the immediate, and the distant into the visceral experience. At the same time, the texts confront a plethora of troubling topics. Reflecting the spirit of comparative studies in religion seriously engaging two or more religious traditions around a common topic and the recent publication of Troubling Topics, Sacred Texts: Readings in Hebrew Bible, New Testament, Qur’an (De Gruyter 2021), this panel focuses attention on how not only sacred texts themselves but their religious inflections function to manage, signify, and negotiate the most troubling of topics.

HBO’s recent series Lovecraft Country takes up the monsters of H. P. Lovecraft’s universe, but flips the script to make the heroes an African-American cast battling various demons in the Jim Crow era.

2007 has been heralded as one of the best in film history. Numerous exceptional films were released, and some actors and directors reached career pinnacles with their 2007 work (the Coen Brothers, Paul Thomas Anderson, Daniel Day-Lewis, George Clooney). I am soliciting 250-word abstracts on any topic related to films from that year, whether as single-film studies, comparative analyses, or studies in cinematic trends. Your presentation can involve films from other years, as long as the 2007 film plays a central role in the argument. I am especially interested in essays on any of the following films:

Nickelodeon’s Avatar: The Last Airbender (2005-08) and its sequel The Legend of Korra (2012-14) are among the most acclaimed and influential animated television series of the twenty-first century. Yet, there has been little scholarly writing about them. To remedy this gap, I am looking for contributors for an edited volume of essays on this franchise.

The book will be designed for a general undergraduate readership, covering a range of topics in relation to the Avatar franchise. These include (but are not limited to):

Monday, March 1, 2021

This special issue of Science Fiction Studies examines food’s multiple registrations across the spectrum of historical and contemporary SF. As a core element of both the problems with and solutions to the climate crisis, the global food system is the nexus of an array of future-oriented concerns emerging around issues such as security, diet, foodways, technologies, population, habitats, consumer cultures, production techniques, energy regimes and much more. As a result of this focus the very concept of eating and food as baseline cultural material has arguably been placed under the sign of the future to a greater extent than hitherto experienced.
