Special Issue on "Modern and Contemporary Irish Writing"

Humanities
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, February 28, 2021

Dear Colleagues,

We seek original, previously unpublished essays for a Special Issue of Humanities on the topic modern and contemporary Irish writing.

Irish writing has emerged, especially since the turn of the last century, as a space of compelling and varied production. While we remain mindful of Emer Nolan’s important proviso that the Republic of Ireland “now appropriates all ‘success’ (including literary ‘success’) as evidence of its own dynamism, tolerance, and inclusiveness,” we are nevertheless interested in examining the ways in which historical and emergent forms of expression have combined in contemporary Ireland to produce this present moment of innovation and compelling creativity.

The 2020 COVID-19 pandemic impacts the lives of societies, communities, and individuals deeply. Since the beginning of the pandemic, experts, scholars, journalists, and individuals have testified time and again to the fact that the virus does not impact everyone in the same ways. Identifying factors that heighten vulnerability is an important part of protecting those at risk. However, just as it is vital to recognize that racism and not race translates to higher exposure to and less protection from the virus for people of colour, it is crucial to recognize that ageism and not age is the greatest factor that puts older people at risk.

The Senses & Interior Design

Apart from the recent exhibition and attending catalogue for the 2018 Cooper-Hewitt exhibition, Senses: Design Beyond Vision, which focused on countless objects, and Diana Fuss’ compelling The Sense of an Interior(2004) which explores the specific rooms of four giant literary figures from the nineteenth century, a sustained investigation of the complex relationships between the senses and interior design remains elusive. Yet, despite this absence countless are the examples and vantage points from which to explore a constellation of interior design practices, theories and uses that have taken the five senses (sight, touch, smell, taste and hearing) into consideration.

At the end of 2019, there were approximately 4.2 million people around the world waiting for a decision on their asylum claims (UNHCR). Amongst them is a particularly vulnerable group: LGBTQI+ people: sons, daughters, parents, partners and lovers, with horrendous histories of imprisonment, bodily harm, torture, and psychological trauma.These atrocities are inflicted on them by their own governments, countrymen, and, worst of all, friends and families.This conference aims to discuss the situation of LGBTQI+  asylum seekers and refugees  who have committed no crime, yet cannot live freely in their own countries due to their sexual orientation or gender identity. 

 

These topics shall be explored under the following themes:

Gender & Embodiment in Narratives of Displacement: Special Issue of Feminist Encounters

Katrina Powell, Virginia Tech
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, September 15, 2020

According to the United Nations, more than 70 million people have been displaced worldwide. The UN monitors statistics on internally displaced persons, refugees, and asylum-seekers, and within those groups there are nuanced experiences of displacement based on gender, race, sexual expression, class, religion, and ability. Experience of forced displacement—whether because of civil unrest, natural disaster, government-induced development, or climate change—is more and more a shared experience, and the narratives of these experiences can both bring together and challenge us. The recent global Coronavirus pandemic affects us all, and yet it exacerbates the inequities in medical care, services, and ability to adhere to stay-at-home mandates.

The Gendered Arab

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, November 30, 2020

The Arab notion of identity, defined by traditional gender roles, categorizes the binary subsets of the patriarchal understanding of performative “male” and “female” facades. Gender remains vaguely defined in the Arab world due to layers of taboo and stigma; untraditional gender roles and practices result in a halt of the fragile cyclical reality within the Arab realm. In recent years, the academic world began to decode expressions of gender within the Arab world; however, the gendered Arab identity has been fundamentally stereotyped. In this edited volume, we venture into various subsets of the 21st century Arab identity that pertain to deciphering the gendered Arab.

Pride/Sacrifices: Soldier Wives’ Memoirs (1947-2020)

(Call for Entries for an Anthology)

 

She cleans the house and pays those bills
And has her moments when all time stands still
With the love in her heart for just one man
She can't help but cry as she looks at her band

She prays someday he'll come home safe from harm
And once again she'll snuggle up in his arms
She speaks to God about her plans and wishes
As she stands and cries while doing dishes

She's trying to hold it together the best that she can
Doing all she can do for the love of just one man

This special issue of Women's Studies: an interdisciplinary journal invites submissions to address the global phenomenon I am calling “desexualization.” Long before the pandemic and social distancing, scientists had been reporting that people are having far less sex than ever before, in the United States, Japan, Britain, Europe, and elsewhere.

Call for Papers: Cinematic Bodies

updated: 
Wednesday, August 12, 2020 - 6:09pm
Cinephile (The University of British Columbia's Film Journal)
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 11, 2020

The body on the screen and the body of the screen have always formed a compelling and productive pairing. From apparatus theory to production and exhibition histories, these two conceptualizations of cinematic bodies remain valuable avenues for reflecting on the use of images, their visibility, materiality, and presentation. As cinema continues to fracture and expand across our cell phones and living spaces, the screen is increasingly tangible, mobile, and ubiquitous. Like the mobile toys and popular illusions preceding modern cinema, these forms of new media present particular bodies on particular screens.

deadline for submissions:

For a collection under contract with Lexington Books, we seek submissions that address both historical and theoretical perspectives of “Hallyu” that specifically intersect with issues regarding gender, sexuality, and stereotype.

Abstracts are due August 31, 2020 and acceptances will go out September 15.

Completed essays are due in Microsoft Word by December 1, 2020 and should be around 10,000 words in English.
