Fandom today is often entangled with digital platforms, which offer spaces and features that make some aspects of fan culture more widely accessible amid increasingly globalized communities and models of consumption. Fans are perceived to be early adopters of new technologies, particularly those that provide space for gathering and community building. Likewise, many types of fan works, fan labor, and fandom participation depend on certain platforms for hosting, sharing, distributing, and discussing such content. However, fans also have complicated relationships with platforms, whether because their needs and uses are in conflict with other stakeholders or because platforms can generate and challenge notions of access, accountability, and community.

+++EXTENDED DEADLINE+++++Whether Poe was correct in asserting that “The death of a beautiful woman is, unquestionably, the most poetical topic in the world,” he certainly was correct in associating her demise, mythical or otherwise, with the generation of art.  This special session for PAMLA 2022 invites papers that consider the significance of representations of death in modern popular culture.  Papers may engage the following questions or consider the topic from other directions.  How does the gendered and raced association of death with femininity produce normative masculinity?  In what ways does the overdetermined association between women and mortality stabilize concepts of geography, including nation?  Can we even imagine “America” without the quoti

dominant cultures and literature. We know that there are also associations which are focusing
on one or the other marginalised community and their literature. Our aim is to provide a
single and unique platform to all the possible marginalised literatures and cultures, which are either
neglected or not taken seriously.
We are planning to bring the scholars and academicians on a single stage that will

deadline for submissions:

As the COVID-19 pandemic exposed structural cracks in public health policies and health care systems around the globe, the humanities intensified arguments for their inclusion in health care, health education, policy development, and public health initiatives, citing, among other things, their existing work on cultural analysis, gender, race, and class, disease construction, illness narratives, the decoding of text, and perspective-taking. At the onset of the pandemic, humanities scholars from across the world quickly produced editorials and lecture series, arguing for, and demonstrating the value of, the humanities in responding to the global health crisis.

Crisis in Contemporary British Fiction (edited volume)

updated: 
Friday, April 22, 2022 - 9:03am
Anastasia Logotheti
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 30, 2022

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 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).
