Marcy Tanter
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, December 1, 2020

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. We anticipate that the edited volume will be cross-disciplinary and bring insights from international scholars. We welcome papers that address new research and cultural products that are relevant and current. Space for visuals is limited so non-textual elements should be included sparingly. Abstracts are due August 1, 2020 and acceptances will go out August 20.

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

Grace Kelly (1928-82) was a very successful Catholic Irish-American film actress who received the title of Princess Grace of Monaco upon her marriage in 1956, a decade in which, even though members of her ethnic community were increasingly assimilated into American society, they were still excluded from certain very exclusive roles. Thus, the impact of Kelly’s wedding cannot be underestimated: filmed by her studio, MGM, it was watched on television by an estimated 30 million people, which made it one of the largest international media events of that decade.

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

This interdisciplinary panel invites papers from those working at the intersection of any of the following areas: Modernism, Women’s and Gender Studies, Law, and Literary and Critical Theory. It focuses on the literary response to the changing legal landscape in Britain between the years of 1890-1945. Though there has been much critical work on law and gender in the Modernist period, particularly as relates to canonical Modernist figures Virginia Woolf and Ford Madox Ford, among others, this panel invites contributions that considers literary texts in the context of the law, broadly conceived.

Middle Eastern Literatures
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

MEL (Middle Eastern Literatures) is willing to consider a potential special issue on men and masculinities to discuss the changing social construction of masculinities in Middle Eastern literatures, and to elaborate on how literature as a field can contribute to the theorization of masculinities. This special issue is intended to explore masculinities as dynamic and multifaceted phenomena emerging within contradictory cultural, material and discursive contexts of the Middle East. The aim is to locate and dislocate masculinities, along the line of thought presented by Andrea Cornwall and Nancy Lindisfarne in Dislocating Masculinity (1994).
