In the past two decades, crowdfunding and renewed interest in non-digital games (board games, role-playing games, and instructional games) and video games have created a diverse gaming production, which has become the subject of several studies and projects related to education. This session aims to explore and assess the impact that game-based learning can have for developing language proficiency, intercultural competence, or critical thinking in our Italian language, literature, and culture courses. We invite contributions that explore theoretical foundations and focus on practical activities and student work that are informed by game-based, and video game-based F/L2 language acquisition principles.

The 2022 Call for the Queer Caucus is centering on topics surrounding queerness and the body: the effects of the Pandemic. The call wants to ask questions like "How has the queer community experience the devastating and last effects that have arisen out of pandemics?" "What happens with the lost of queer geography?" This call also seeks papers that explore how the queer community has continued to find creative ways to maintain communities, connections, and support when their physical spaces, their livelihoods, and their health have been threathened. How do you find community, other queer bodies? The recent closure of gay bars has also taken a toll and what does this mean for the future?

Burning the Ballot: Feminism Meets Anarchy

Friday, September 10, 2021 - 12:17pm
A Special Issue of Coils of the Serpent: Journal for the Study of Contemporary Power
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, December 1, 2021

Anarchism’s engagement with the question of gender is at once ambiguous and contradictory. Historically, the anarchist response to the “woman/sex question” was mixed. During the period of ‘classical anarchism’ (1840-1939), women took on active roles in anarchist movements – they were active in anarchist organizations, publications, and projects across the globe. They took part in uprisings, rebellions, and revolutions, as well as in the work of day-to-day anarchist organizing, propaganda, and more. While many (though not all) rejected the label of feminist, they nonetheless spoke out against sexual subordination and called for the emancipation of women with the overthrow of all forms of social, political, and economic hierarchy.

The Promises of Care and Saudi Women’s Invisibility

updated: 
Friday, September 10, 2021 - 12:13pm
NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

Saudi women have always been perceived distinctly in both Arab and global communities. It’s not a secret that Saudi women have occupied the focus of international interest for a long time. Although this interest may come across as “care,” leading political global forces hide behind the promises of “caring” about women’s rights to achieve political gains. In the latter sense, this concept is manipulated and misused. The misuse of “care” has led to Saudi women’s “hypervisibility” as oppressed, powerless, inferior, and unheard while their true power is still invisible. Evidently, to communicate their unique perception of “care,” Saudi women have utilized different tools ranging from publishing traditional genres to posting on social media.

Crisis in Contemporary British Fiction (edited volume)

updated: 
Friday, September 10, 2021 - 3:24am
Anastasia Logotheti
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, October 30, 2021

This collection of critical essays explores how contemporary British authors engage with the theme of crisis in their fiction (as apparent in novels and short stories by Kazuo Ishiguro, Julian Barnes, A S Byatt, Graham Swift, Hilary Mantel, Zadie Smith, Pat Barker, Martin Amis, among others.)

‘Crisis’ can be investigated not only as informing any aspect of fiction involving sociopolitical and cultural systems, but also as a mode of challenge to established power structures and modes of representationacross narrative traditions.

Submissions should focus on one or more of the aforementioned major contemporary British authors (though you are welcome to propose additional British authors who explore the theme of crisis).

EXTENDED DEADLINE: DISTRIBUTION IN THE STREAMING ERA (Velvet Light Trap #90)

updated: 
Wednesday, September 1, 2021 - 3:12pm
The Velvet Light Trap
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 1, 2021

Over the past decade, the media ecology has been dramatically shifting with the advent of online “over-the-top” streaming services, the streaming wars that followed, and the platformization of the web. As the distance between big tech companies and legacy media players rapidly dwindles, rippling effects can be felt across industries, audience practices, regulatory frameworks, and more. Simultaneously, the rise of streaming services also continues to provoke further theorizations on topics that have concerned media scholars for decades regarding the asymmetrical dynamics of power and influence as it relates to globalization processes, representation, identity, politics, cultural and national mediations, and economic development.

Suicide and Popular Culture

Dr. Mike Alvarez/University of New Hampshire
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 15, 2021

According to the World Health Organization, more than 700,000 people die by suicide every year; one in 100 global deaths is by suicide. In the U.S., the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported 45,000 deaths by suicide (14.2 per 100,000) for the year 2020, representing a 30 percent increase over a 20-year period. Suicide is the eleventh leading cause of death in the U.S., and among persons between the ages of 10 to 34, it is the second leading cause. Women are more likely than men to attempt suicide, but men are three to four times more likely than women to die by suicide. In short, suicide is an intractable public and global health issue that has shown few signs of abating.

Germany and the African Diaspora

updated: 
Wednesday, September 1, 2021 - 2:54pm
Northeast Modern Languages Association annual convention
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

Why Germany? What relation does Germany, a country, have with the African continent? The relationship between African countries and Germany dates back to the seventeenth century, long before the Berlin conference of 1884 under Otto von Bismarck—itself a historical turning-point in German colonial politics. The meeting resulted in the scramble for and partition of Africa by European nations like France, Germany, Spain, Portugal, and Great Britain. The nineteenth-century saw an explosion of adventurous trading enterprises that pushed Bismarck to start a more official, state-supported form of colonialism and ultimately to the Berlin Conference.
