Multidisciplinary Collection on Transraciality

updated: 
Thursday, April 7, 2022 - 3:51pm
Molly McKibbin & Rebecca Tuvel
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 30, 2022

Description:

In 2015, the case of Rachel Doležal sparked a heated debate about transraciality and helped to establish an academic examination of the subject.  The scholarly consideration of transraciality is in its formative stages and this edited collection is an effort to expand and develop the existing discussion.  The first of its kind, this volume will include interdisciplinary contributions from scholars who bring a wide range of perspectives and approaches to the subject.  We are interested in chapters that help us, as an academic community, better understand transraciality as a concept or practice.

CLASSIC HORROR - abstracts due April 25, 2022

2022 is the 90th anniversary of the numerous amazing classic horror films that were released in 1932, among them Freaks, Island of Lost Souls, The Most Dangerous Game, The Old Dark House, The Mummy, and White Zombie. To mark this anniversary, we are soliciting abstracts for a special 'journal' issue of the website Horror Homeroom on classic horror.  This special issue, which will come out in 2022, will certainly honor those films that have their anniversary this year, but we also want to broaden what classic horror looks like and are interested in essays that explore other national cinemas and lesser-known films.

(MMLA 2022, Minneapolis) Trauma in the Age of Trauma

Friday, April 15, 2022

Recent essays and articles in publications like The Atlantic and Vox have voiced growing concerns about the increasing elasticity of “trauma.” Even so, those same texts note the value of recognizing others’ trauma and of responding ethically to their stories. This worth is particularly evident in the wake of the many Covid-related traumatic events and the most recent racial reckonings (that may or may not have occurred) in the US and around the world.

The Art of Drag (Racing): Reading The Fast and the Furious

Despite its outsized popular impact – which spans 20 years, 9 films, a chart-topping song and several viral memes – The Fast Saga remains under-studied. This call for papers invites sustained inquiry into these films for a collection in Post45’s Contemporaries forum, seeking to understand the implications of this series in and on the cultural imagination, especially given the questions posed by its notable divergence from the action film genre.

In today's culture, it's almost impossible to avoid "monsters."  Straight from mythology and legend, these fantastic creatures traipse across our television screens and the pages of our books.  Over centuries and across cultures, the inhuman have represented numerous cultural fears and, in more recent times, desires. They are Other. They are Us. This panel will explore monsters--whether they be mythological, extraterrestrial, or man-made--that populate fiction and film, delving into the cultural, psychological and/or theoretical implications.

Introduction

Borders, Boundaries and Identities

Tuesday, March 29, 2022 - 9:33am
Intersections: A Journal of Literary and Cultural Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, April 6, 2022

The marking of borders and boundaries aims at structuring and naming spaces – both geographical and symbolic – as distinguishable entities. This naming, however, is subject to the incessant erasure and redrawing of lines of demarcation and redefining of spaces and identities, the demolition and reorganization of power structures, and the repositioning of the centre and the margins. Despite attempts at disciplining territories, spaces and identities, transgressions of boundaries and borders are inevitable. And the passages created by differing boundaries constitute the most contested fields. Nomenclature, therefore, remains a problem without a closure.

Sunday, March 27, 2022

When mass movements are rising up against so-called “gender ideology” and succeeding in implementing anti-trans and anti-queer legislation across the globe, has the time come to reconsider—or perhaps even suspend—radical critiques of queer liberalism, homonormativity, and homonationalism? Elżbieta Korolczuk and Agnieszka Graff, for instance, have asserted that “while feminists, mostly from the global South, have long critiqued the discourse of universal human rights and the neocolonial elements in UN population policies, today it is clear that a wholesale rejection of universalism plays into the hands of right-wing populists” (816).
