Issue Eight: Invisibility (escaping notice)Call for Papers / Works  

Silence, unseen, unspeakable, inapreciable, faint, concealed, unheard, impalpable. These are terms that fall within the semantic realm of invisibility. How do we begin to speak about, create alongside, sit with, and/or reflect on what cannot -by definition- be reified?  

Invisibility offers the opportunity to retrospectively observe and chronicle what goes (un)intentionally ignored. On the other hand, to acknowledge invisibility is to deterritorialize our sight, to be open to experience what is around us without hierarchizing the senses. Verónica Gerber Bicecci (2010) writes,

CFP Issue 2: Media, Materiality and Emergency

deadline: 30th June 2020

Guest editor: Dr. Timothy Barker (University of Glasgow)

In what ways do questions of materiality matter in a time of crisis? What does it mean to explore the matter of things at a time when we are threatened with the annihilation of that matter, its disappearance, or its disintegration? The second issue of MAST journal seeks to answer and further explore these questions through essays from arts practitioners and theorists.

Call for papers for a book approved for publication by Routledge, on Bollywood cinema, expected to fall within the interdisciplinary spaces of Cultural Studies, Film Studies and Postcolonial Studies.

Even as the air in Delhi grows increasingly toxic and poisonous, a fearful, dreaded specter is haunting the subcontinent today, just as toxic as the poisonous air. The rise and rise of Hindutva, or Hindu nationalism or political Hindu agenda that has engulfed India has also initiated the favorite pursuit of right wing of invoking the ‘glorious past’. This ‘glorious past is primarily being invoked by a surge of historical(s) in Bollywood.

EXTENDED: CFP, Special Issue 32, "Aesthetics of Idleness"

updated: 
Friday, January 17, 2020 - 12:47pm
InVisible Culture: An Electronic Journal for Visual Culture
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 31, 2020

For its thirty-second issue, InVisible Culture: An Electronic Journal for Visual Culture invites scholarly articles and creative works that address the aesthetics of idleness. This issue will also feature an introduction by and an interview with Jean Ma.

Idleness suggests slack and stasis. It evokes empty, wasted time, and thus the dangers of being useless. It even recalls the religious notion that there is something satanic about not being occupied with work. But what are the aesthetics of idleness? In what ways does being idle function as a cultural or artistic practice? How can we theorize idleness, and perhaps do so idly? Or does treating idleness as a site of cultural analysis and critical theory undo the danger of it?

Edited Collection: Silenced Masculinities

updated: 
Friday, January 10, 2020 - 2:56pm
Gene Melton and Catherine Mainland / NC State University
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, March 31, 2020

Masculinities have been created and codified by every aspect of society, and have been embodied in everything from images of cave men to the Ken doll. Much of this creation depends upon the stifling of manifestations of masculinities that, over time, fluctuate in terms of social acceptability and utility. This volume will interrogate classic and contemporary cultural products in order to expose and explore how and why masculinities have been censored as “toxic” or are increasingly being silenced in other ways. The collection seeks to offer a mindful engagement with the rapidly evolving field of masculinity studies and the emergent crises facing masculinities of all kinds.
