deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 15, 2024

This is a call for pitches to write a chapter for an edited collection tentatively entiled: Devilish, Delightful or Divas? Magazines and Magazine Editors on Screen edited by Rebecca Johinke, University of Sydney, Australia.

 

Routledge are interested in the project but I need several more chapters before I can finalise the book proposal. I'd like to do that by the end of January, if possible.

I already have a strong group of prominent scholars who have committed to writing chapters but there are gaps.

If you have an interest in magazine studies, gender and cultural studies, feminist media studies and/or television studies then please get in touch and I will send you more information.

In Literature and Evil, Bataille argues for a close connection between literature and "Evil" as a sovereign and productive value, which is defined against an oppressive use of reason that "flattens" all knowledge into a reductive uniformity. Bataille finds in Blake's A Marriage of Heaven and Hell "agitations", "poetic violence" and "lacerations" that occur in Blake’s drive towards human totality and death. At the same time, Bataille observes that this violence and Evil also "raise us to glory" in Blake's attribution to Evil of "the wisdom of Hell that heralds ... truth” --albeit a truth irreducible to representation, priority of the logos, and assimilation by reason.

A Queer Presence: Queer Ghostlore in Folk and Popular Cultures (edited collection)

In an essay for the New Yorker, author Nell Stevens writes that, growing up as a reader of ghost stories, the “spectral presences, by being seen and not seen, by exerting energy where none was anticipated, spoke to the queerness I felt within me and didn’t understand. At that time in my life, I experienced my queerness as an unknowable force” (2022). With the advent of media like the YouTube series Queer Ghost Hunters (2016), Mike Flanagan’s The Haunting of Bly Manor (Netflix 2020), and Kristen Stewart’s long-awaited queer ghost hunting show Living for the Dead (Hulu 2023), queer ghosts have begun to make themselves visible in the broader landscape of paranormal media.

Exploring the Scandalous

updated: 
Friday, December 15, 2023 - 12:08pm
ESSE Conference 2024
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 31, 2024

For this seminar as part of the ESSE conference 2024 in Lausanne, 26-30 August 2024, we invite abstracts on the topic/narrative structures/media conditions of the scandalous (in the 19th-21st centuries) through the lens of  in_visibilisation. Scandals – in the context of sex, money or power – tend to involve obfuscation, an audience that is in the dark, but willing to see, agents who have an interest either in disclosure or in concealment. These interests are shot through with power that can be gendered, often contains a class-imbalance, is sometimes racialized, and not infrequently centres on non-normative desires. One area in which these dynamics of scandalization become particularly obvious are the cultural practices of fame and celebrity.

Gaston Bachelard asserts that "all really inhabited space bears the essence of the notion of home." How does one define "home"? Is it a materially constructed shelter, or a psychological space that holds one's memories, imaginations, and, essentially, a space that "protects the daydreamer" (The Poetics of Space, 5)? Furthermore, what does it mean to exist in a "body"? And what does it feel like to be "at home" in a body? How does one traverse these inhabited spaces, both in public and in private? Or, how are spatial boundaries reinstated when the home and the body is misaligned?
