Dissenting Beliefs Edited Collection: Heresy and Heterodoxy in Fantasy

updated: 
Wednesday, September 7, 2022 - 9:52pm
Centre for Fantasy and the Fantastic
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 3, 2022

Religious fantasy, for a great many readers, is synonymous with Christian fantasy; more specifically, it is understood as literature overtly reproducing biblical narratives within a fantasy world, such as C. S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia. Concurrently, fantasy texts engaging with theology through non-allegorical means that challenge mainstream Christian doctrine are all too often dismissed as disingenuous, offensive or deliberately antagonistic. While this is sometimes the case, such a narrow view of religious fantasy excludes all but the least innovative texts from the genre and leaves little room for authors of other faiths.

 “Resiliency in the Face of Trauma”

The concept of trauma is largely understood as the impact of disruptive experiences on one’s sense of self, one’s environment, one’s external reality. In this panel, we would like to further investigate the aftermath of trauma and the resiliency of both physical and human nature in the face of destructive events as represented in contemporary Italian literature and cinema.

Reimagining #MeToo in South Asia And the Diaspora

updated: 
Thursday, September 1, 2022 - 11:25pm
Nidhi Shrivastava
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

At the center of the #MeToo movement lie survivor testimonies, which demystify victim-shaming, victim-blaming, and legitimizing the victim-survivor's testimony as the unquestionable truth. In the South Asian context, such testimonies are still a taboo, which leads to victim-survivors refusing to share and relive their experiences and narratives even if they have the means and access to do so. Our panel seeks to problematize the #MeToo movement in order to reimagine and contextualize it in South Asia and the South Asian diaspora as a much-needed intervention to examine the implications of a transnational feminist movement.

Is the UK a country of immigration? British immigration historian Panikos Panayi says yes. Although its history and founding are not comparable to that of the United States, which is synonymous with the history of immigration, the history of Britain is also not unrelated to immigration. On the contrary, for the past 200 years, immigration has been a major driving force in history, leading to significant changes in British society. In the context of the dissolution of the British Empire and the decline of the British economy after World War II, Englishness has emerged as a public concern by British people who ask themselves, “What is British?” or “What is English?”.

DEAD WOMEN & GENDERED DEATH IN VISUAL CULTURE

updated: 
Thursday, August 25, 2022 - 9:29am
MAI: Feminism and Visual Culture
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, November 30, 2022

This focus issue seeks papers offering critical and creative insights into representations of dead women, the dead female body and gendered death. The mounting demand for death-centric shows, films, music videos, and texts has made it obvious that death sells. However, as bell hooks argues, typically ‘the death that captures the public imagination . . . is passionate, sexualised, glamorised and violent’. (2021 [1994]) More often than not, it is the death of a woman.

Call For Papers: “New Formations of Game Genre,”

updated:

Gerald Voorhees
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

 

Game Studies has adopted a notion of genre that overcomes the “tension between ‘ludology’ and ‘narratology’... [by] “conceptualizing video games as operating in the interplay between these two taxonomies of genre” (Apperley 2006). That is, the consensus of the field is that game genres are a combination of both narrative and other forms of representation (e.g. Adventure, Western, or Sci-Fi stories and/or motifs) and formal, ludic structures (e.g  cooperative or competitive, role-playing, shooting, platforming). 

 

The Intertext in Literature and Film - NeMLA Panel

updated: 
Tuesday, August 23, 2022 - 2:41pm
NeMLA's 54th Annual Convention
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

The panel, “The Intertext in Literature and Film”, aims at gathering papers that discuss the plurality of texts in literary genres and the film genre. Intertextuality is conceived of, in this discussion, from Kristeva’s coinage of the term. In her Semeiotike: Recherches pour une sémanalyse (1969), Kristeva develops the term after Bakhtin’s concept of dialogism in the novel. Kristeva’s seminal work on “intertexuality” may entail it as a concept that accentuates the intertwining feature of narratives. Added to that, the Bakhtinian concept is also paramount to the approach of this subject matter as his theory of the novel is intrinsic in fiction especially within “the multiple voicings of a text” (A Poetics of Postmodernism 126).

CCR releases three issues per year, and a set of reviews is included in each issue. If more than one reviewer volunteers, reviewers can split the work.

The environment is still being shaped by anthropocentric acts, facing continuous destruction, and reverberating catastrophic effects on numerous species, including humans both as individuals and as communities. This panel wants to contribute to the ongoing debate about the necessity to improve the human relationship with the environment, with nature, and the need for a significant, long overdue change of the current course of action. The ongoing unscrupulous devastation can lead to extreme outcomes such as extinction, announcing the termination of numerous representations of life in various forms. Yet, a strong resistance to this threat can be encountered in various contexts and is defined in disparate ways through diversified means of communication.

To be held in person March 16-18, 2023

This interdisciplinary conference on Women and Gender brings together participants from all academic fields to engage in wide-ranging conversations about education as a catalyst for freedom and transformation. Contributors are encouraged to consider education in the diversity of its forms, and how “traditional” and/or “alternative” models, both inside and outside of the classroom, intersect with the politics of gender. What are the social, economic, and intellectual consequences of denying women and marginalized communities access to education? Alternatively, how may education serve as an act of resistance to systems of oppression throughout the world?

“That’s a Take”: The International Television Commercial as Short Film is a two-day, virtual conference that engages interdisciplinary scholarship from any critical/methodological perspective examining the international television commercial production as a short film narrative. As examined in Consuming Images: Film Art and the American Television Commercial (Edinburgh University Press, 2020) which established the complex vitality of the television commercial both as a short film and as an art form, the television commercial has an aesthetic and historical dynamic linking it directly to cinematic and media cultures.
