Wednesday, January 6, 2021 - 4:27pm

deadline for submissions:

The Book Out of Order: Structure, Inversion, Dissent

updated: 
Sunday, December 20, 2020 - 11:41pm
University of Toronto's Book History and Print Culture Student Colloquium
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 11, 2021

“The book always aims at installing an order, whether it is the order in which it is deciphered, the order in which it is to be understood, or the order intended by the authority who commanded or permitted the work.” (Roger Chartier, The Order of the Book)

If, according to Roger Chartier, “the book always aims at installing an order,” what does it mean for the book to be out of order? Is it broken? Is it committing some kind of transgression? Is it still a book? What is a book supposed to do, and what does it mean when it falls short of its perceived functions – or overshoots them?

Searching for the Modern Girl: Flappers and Bright Young Things Around the World 1920s–40s

updated: 
Wednesday, December 16, 2020 - 9:52am
The Space Between Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, December 30, 2021

While the Bright Young Things of England and the flappers of the America remain fixed in cultural memory, their incarnations elsewhere around the world have all but disappeared from history.  Affiliation with a feminized Anglo-European metropole may have contributed to their invisibility in the colonial peripheries, constructed around paradigms of masculine nationhood or anxious to distinguish themselves from Anglo-European mass culture. Despite her iconic status in the interwar period, the stigma associated with this notorious female figure in her own time seems to have carried over into the academy, inhibiting serious critical analysis of her role and function as an image for modernity.

updated:

University of Toronto Graduate English Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 15, 2021

In the introduction to the Winter 1998 edition of Critical Inquiry, Lauren Berlant suggests that “the inwardness of the intimate is met by a corresponding publicness.” Over two decades later, Berlant’s pronouncement remains pertinent, particularly as the transition of our work and social lives to online spaces complicates the relationship between the private and the public. Stripped of actual bodily closeness and intimacy, the virtual body, along with its intimations and those of its domestic space, has been thrown into relief.
