deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, May 15, 2021

The Twentieth century saw the rapid development of the city and its impact on the socio-cultural fabric of nations manifested in the social and cultural ways of living. The city came to be represented as an urban wasteland and the loss and moving away from the pastoral was eulogised in many texts. These texts looked into the anonymity of the individual in the milieu of the city where the older closed bonds of the familiar rural community got replaced by the unfamiliar existence. The village was seen as an idyllic space nurturing the humans towards an organic and symbiotic coexistence and ways of living.

Metamorphosis: Transformations across Time, Culture & Identity

updated: 
Wednesday, April 28, 2021 - 11:33am
University of Glasgow College of Arts Postgraduate Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, June 1, 2021

Registration is now open for the annual University of Glasgow College of Arts PGR Conference.

Metamorphosis refers to a dramatic change in the form, structure or character of an entity, distinctly characterised as a process whereby the old is subsumed, absorbed or self-devoured to provide the substance to forge the new—but how is this concept experienced in contemporary culture?

How does metamorphosis materialise in research practice, academia, social justice, or identity? What social, political or cultural forces engender metamorphosis, and how have these transformations been received? Is metamorphosis creative or destructive? Tangible or intangible? Abrupt or fluid?

After the Pandemic: The State of English

Pedagogy 23.3

How has COVID-19 affected the already vastly altered landscape of post-secondary English studies, for good and/or for ill? After all, recent years have brought important, ever-growing attention to a range of inequities, even as the public continues to question the value of higher education and the humanities. COVID-19 has only magnified the terrain of higher education, which has been shifting economically, pedagogically, and technologically. Pedagogy invites both commentary and narrative pieces of no more than 15 pages addressing this broad question, from whatever part of the discipline you find yourself.

A gap has crept between what writing for the workplace requires and what professional and technical writing departments that were set up with the purpose of preparing our students for workplace writing are producing. The special issue of  Writing and Pedagogy intends to discuss ways that departments, instructor cohorts, and individual instructors  are bridging the gap through new approaches to syllabus design, discussion facilitation, digital feedback, incorporation of digital, social media spaces, and teaching innovations.

Shakespeare in Indian Cinema, Muse India Issue 99, Sept-Oct 2021

updated: 
Thursday, April 22, 2021 - 11:34am
Muse India
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, April 21, 2021

Naseeruddin Shah, the actor, once claimed that “The roots may look lost but every big story in the Hindi film industry is from Shakespeare.” It might not be as simple as that but what Shah was pointing out was to the fact that there are many references to Shakespeare’s plays in Hindi film. Not just Hindi but Indian cinema reveals an adaptation and appropriation of the Bard of Avon. There are themes and devices so commonly found in Shakespeare’s plays in Indian films, such as twins separated at birth, cross dressing characters, star-crossed lovers, characters falling in love with messengers, the wise fool, the tamed Shrew and the mousetrap device.

SPECIAL ISSUE OF THE CEA CRITIC: Impediments to Student Success

Monday, October 25, 2021

For this special issue of The CEA Critic, we seek essays that examine various obstacles to student learning in higher education. To be clear: we are not interested in essays that deal with teaching in the time of COVID per se—our special 2020 COVID issue took on that subject. Rather, now that the end of COVID seems not far off, what other obstacles are inhibiting the success of students?

In addition to the overall conference theme of “Politics of Protest,” the SCMLA African American Literature Regular Session encourages students, researchers, and scholars to submit presentations that explore the Legacy of Toni Morrison. As the author of eleven novels, five children's books, two plays, and nine non-fiction texts, Morrison stands tall as one of the most well-known, well-read, and often-taught authors of the twentieth (and 21st) century.

Literature and Cognitive Science

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, June 30, 2021

This panel invites papers exploring new subjects and approaches in the field of cognitive literary studies and, especially, cognitive poetics. We are interested in investigations of both the formal and the cultural/historical convergence of literary and cognitive research. What poems, novels, stories, etc. could be newly read and understood with the aid of insights and frameworks borrowed from such disciplines as experimental psychology and neuroscience? But also, why is it that literary scholars can turn to cognitive theories as plausible hermeneutical models in the first place? Where does the resonance between the concerns of writers and scientists, which today we seem to take for granted, come from?
