"Tantra" has the distinction of being one of the few conceptions that simultaneously refers to intensely esoteric and antinomian systems of traditional mystical, magical, and occult practice deeply rooted in and contextualized in cultural specificity while also being used to describe popularized receptions that variously narrow its focus, broaden its scope, secularize it, moralize it, sanitize it, demonize it, and diabolize it.  Sometimes popular conceptions also associate its practice with variant interpretations of concepts such as the "Left-Hand Path" that themselves have accrued a considerable range of both emic and etic significances frequently at odds with one another.  Unlike abstractions such as the "Left-Hand Path," Tantra has retained a common t

"Sovereign Bodies, Movements, and Imaginaries"

The peer-reviewed journal Voces del Caribe invites proposals for a special issue titled “Sovereign Bodies, Movements, and Imaginaries” edited by Joshua Deckman (Marywood U) and Ana Ugarte (College of the Holy Cross). This issue is a follow-up to a series of panels to be presented in Spring 2021, which bring together faculty and graduate students from a broad array of disciplines with the aim of fostering collaborative research and activism. Our tasks: to identify and explore new paradigms for understanding “sovereignties” across the globe, and to construct new cartographies of cultural creation and circulation beyond the confines of modern nation-states.

“‘Getting lost’ still takes us somewhere; and being lost is a way of inhabiting space by registering what is not familiar: being lost can in its turn become a familiar feeling [...] The familiar is an effect of inhabitance; we are not simply in the familiar, but rather the familiar is shaped by actions that reach out toward objects that are already within reach.”

In recent years, numerous instances of anti-Black violence have brought to light a long, complex history of institutional racism and violence in the United States. At the same time, these events have inspired collective action and consciousness across the globe, prompting communities to recognize their own histories of racism, racial inequality, and discrimination as well as their manifestations in contemporary society. In the Latin American context, the effects of conquest and colonization have played an especially significant role in the shaping of social and cultural histories, and identity representations.

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.

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

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.
