deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, January 31, 2023

For nearly two decades, the “antisocial thesis” has enthralled queer theoretical thought, permeating a variety of debates surrounding relationality, sexuality, gender, race, psychoanalysis, and temporality. Christened by Robert L. Caserio during an infamous 2005 MLA panel, the antisocial thesis, Caserio elaborates, described a “decade of explorations of queer unbelonging” positioned against an intensifying “gay rage for normalizing sociability.” As Robyn Wiegman warns, however, the antisocial thesis “is not ‘a’ thesis.

Reading HBO’s Euphoria - Edited Collection

 

In recent years, there has been no more controversial TV series than HBO’s Euphoria. Adapted from an Israeli production by the same name, by Sam Levinson, its explicit portrayal of Gen Z addiction, sexual violence, and identity crisis has attracted cult devotion and open-mouthed condemnation. The furore around Euphoria’s portrayals of heroin, nudity and mental health have obscured just how complex a take on our culture this high school drama really is. Peek behind the social-media-mirroring of its tone, and you find a work of deep sophistication. 

 

The South Asian Diaspora: Dynamics of Change in American of Comparative Literature Association Conference, Chicago, 16-19 March 2023

Thursday, September 22, 2022 - 11:44am
Medha Bhattacharyya, PhD
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, October 27, 2022

“Diaspora” has broadly come to mean all people who have a particular country of origin but live outside it either due to the 'pull' or 'push' factor. According to James Clifford, the diaspora is a “signifier”, “not simply of transnationality and movement” (1994, 308). At present, “diaspora” goes beyond the context of geographical migrant and marks a departure from the heterosexual identity of a subject. The goal of this special session is to create a space to understand the problematics of the South Asian Diaspora in the contemporary scenario and to explore the gap areas in this field. This panel aims at re-constructing the category of South Asian Diaspora who leave the ‘origin’ of their forefathers and settle or are born elsewhere.

Present Futures

 

The present is great with the future.

—Gottfried Leibniz, 1703

 

In times when the present seems to be facing an imminent – and immanent – crisis, we want to take a step forward and investigate how various concepts and imaginaries of the future can be made fruitful for the present. The 15th issue of On_Culture seeks to explore forms of present futures – futures that manifest in the present and a/effect it – to provide new approaches and critical perspectives to thinking about the future in the study of culture.

Michelle M. Sauer
deadline for submissions:

I am editing the Companion to Sexuality of the Medieval West with Jenny Bledsoe for Arc Humanities. The projected publication date is early 2024. This volume is intended to be an update of the classical Bullough and Brundage volume, with a more inclusive approach.

We are looking someone to write on North Africa. The deadline for submission can be somewhat negotiable, but May 2023 would be ideal. The essay should 6,000-6,500 words, and use a broad approach rather than a specific argument (e.g., handbook style). Chicago style citations as appropriate. Use of images possible as well. All essays peer reviewed.

Please contact me for further details and/or with questions.

Big Feminism: The Fiftieth Anniversary Issue of Signs

updated: 
Wednesday, September 21, 2022 - 11:21am
Signs
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 1, 2023

Signs was founded in 1975 as part of an emergent tradition of feminist scholarship and has been publishing continuously ever since, establishing itself as a preeminent journal in the field of women’s, gender, and sexuality studies. At the time of the journal’s conception, Signs’s founding editorial staff sought not only to raise consciousness and develop theories around women’s oppression but also to challenge the taken-for-granted and to strive for theoretical nuance and interdisciplinarity. To honor half a century of publication, our fiftieth anniversary issue aims to generate new questions and critical discussion around “Big Feminism,” around the role and power of feminist theory, today and into the future.

Seeking Contributions for a Special Issue of ProudFlesh entitled “Black Motion: Looking Our Way Back to Black.”

updated: 
Tuesday, September 20, 2022 - 9:34pm
Kent State University
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 18, 2022

ProudFlesh: New Afrikan Journal of Culture, Politics and Consciousness is seeking contributions for a special issue entitled “Black Motion: Looking Our Way Back to Black.” This issue will examine how contemporary black people of both Africa and the African diaspora reinvent and reimagine their identities in terms that celebrate or draw attention to the body. These ways of imagining, representing the body and its various parts have historically played important roles in the lives of both Africans and peoples of African descent. Yet scholars have often neglected to study such representations and their significance in the day-to-day existence, lifestyles, hobbies, performances, and imaginations of blacks living in both the United States and abroad.

As we figure out what new social configurations look like, and whether or not we want to be a part of them, it seems we are at a point in queer and feminist theory where the futurity of our current conceptions of the social is also being called into question.
