The Portrait of an Artist as a Pathographer: On Writing Illnesses and Illnesses in Writing

Health is silence, illness voice. The lived-body (leib), the body as it is lived and the body which is not merely a corporeal body (korper), speaks through illness (Sarkar, 2019). The latter is a ‘psychosomatic’ condition of not being at ease with-the-world and is, both pathologically and conceptually, different from disease and sickness (Aho & Aho, 2008). This then becomes insignificant whether that illness is the illness of the mind or the body— as the body which is lived is beyond the Cartesian dualism. It is more of an ambiguous continuum of mind-body entanglement rather than the more simplistic mind/body binary. Mental illnesses, therefore, are as much as of the body as physical illnesses are of mind.

Mary Butts, Feminist Reconstructions: Edited Collection

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 15, 2020

 

In the past couple of decades, much has been done to recover British modernist author Mary Butts (1890-1937).  Butts’s Collected Essays and unpublished novel Unborn Gods, forthcoming from McPherson & Co, attest to the ongoing nature of this project.  There is still much more to do, and much to explore in a body of work that plays between high modernist forms and more popular genres, a work that might be described as occult, Gothic, queer, proto-environmental, and feminist. Questions must be asked of Butts’s work and her position in the modernist canon, but also of the continued recovery and reconstruction of this important author.

 

*Deadline approaching* Edited Collection: Silenced Masculinities

updated: 
Thursday, March 19, 2020 - 12:44pm
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.
