To the surprise of analyst expectations, at the end of 2019 Netflix recorded a record-high growth in subscribers and revenue outside of the United States, specifically in its Asia-Pacific region. The growth in this region is attributed to the establishment of regional offices and the commissioning of local productions, the success of which travels even further afield in the wealth of pan-Asian content making its way into Netflix’s global catalogue.

Alluvium Special Issue: 21st Century Irish Women's Writing

Monday, December 7, 2020 - 9:47am
Alluvium, Journal of the British Association for Contemporary Literary Studies (BACLS)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 18, 2020

We find ourselves at an exciting moment as scholars of contemporary Irish writing – Irish literature is, as the Irish Times points out, ‘having a moment’.

As some commentators have noted, both established and emerging female writers are disproportionately represented in the thriving contemporary Irish literary scene. Canonical figures like Anne Enright and Edna O’Brien continue to publish new work. The last two winners of the Sunday Times Audible Short Story Award – Danielle McLaughlin and Niamh Campbell – are Irish women, both of them relatively new to writing. In 2018, Anna Burns became the first woman from Northern Ireland to win the Man Booker Prize.

Reminder: Edited volume: “Trans Identities in the French media” - Call for abstracts

updated: 
Tuesday, December 1, 2020 - 2:55pm
Dr Romain Chareyron
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 31, 2021

 As a preamble to this call for abstracts, we want to specify that we are using the terms “transgender” and “trans identities” as umbrella terms for people whose gender identity and/or gender expression differs from what is typically associated with the sex they were assigned at birth. Our use of “transgender” or “trans identities” thus encompasses a variety of experiences within and outside the gender binary, and a range of expressions, as trans individuals pursue many different options (medical changes, clothing, make-up, etc.) to bring their appearances into alignment with their gender identity, or may choose not to.

Man as Catalyst: Posthumanism and Beyond

Concept Note

“If my nightmare is a culture inhabited by posthumans who regard their bodies as fashion accessories rather than the ground of being, my dream is a version of the posthuman that embraces the possibilities of information technologies without being seduced by fantasies of unlimited power and disembodied immortality, that recognizes and celebrates finitude as a condition of human being, and that understands human life is embedded in a material world of great complexity, one on which we depend for our continued survival”.

CfP for Edited Collection on Jesmyn Ward

updated: 
Sunday, November 22, 2020 - 6:05pm
Maria Torres-Quevedo
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, February 28, 2021

Jesmyn Ward is a two-time winner of the National Book Award, winner of the 2013 National Book Critics Circle Award, and a recipient of the MacArthur “genius grant.” Known for her critically acclaimed fiction and non-fiction, Ward’s lyrical narratives of Black life, home, and family in Louisanna’s Gulf Coast are visceral and evocative. Moreover, while her work is often set in the same geographical region, the concerns explored within it stretch beyond the shores of the Gulf Coast, extending if not physically then cosmologically toward the Caribbean and the African continent. Yet, despite the critical celebration and geopolitical breadth of her work, Ward remains remarkably under-studied, particularly outside the United States.
