ISLANDS AND TIME - ISLAND TEMPORALITIES IN THE CONTEXT OF ISLAND RESEARCH

updated: 
Monday, March 28, 2022 - 6:12pm
Narodna umjetnost journal (Institute of Ethnology and Folklore Research)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 1, 2022

In the context of the social sciences and humanities, research on islands from a variety of disciplines is primarily characterised by spatiality as a fundamental determinant of island cultures. The frequent emphasis on spatiality has resulted in representations of islands as constrained both in everyday life and geographically and marked by a historicised present and a belated modernity. In doing so, the transformative and dynamic character of culture has often been neglected, as well as the heterogeneity of the lived experience of island communities.

In Edwidge Danticat’s short story “Without Inspection,” an undocumented Haitian immigrant, Arnold, dies from unsafe working conditions at a construction site in south Florida. In the news coverage about the event, the construction company and developer release a statement in which he is referred to as Ernesto Fernandez, probably from the false documents Arnold offered to be hired. Danticat’s story illustrates the blending of Caribbean cultures in the U.S. South through worksites and migration processes, centering labor and labor conditions in immigrant and refugee life.

Chicon 8
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 29, 2022

Science fiction (and its cousin genres, fantasy and horror) have long explored what it means to explore the unknown. In particular, some of SF’s familiar narratives have pondered life beyond our world, grappled with the vast expanse of the universe and the many things to be discovered there, and tackled complicated meetings with other beings and other ways of life. Beyond the SF bubble, fantasy has imagined entire worlds and wondered at a cosmos of gods and magic; meanwhile, horror has teased at the edges of its genre cousins, offering disturbing visions of space and other forms of travel and exploration in which the unknown is often waiting with jaws wide open.

Violence and Autonomy: Indigenizing Speculative Fiction (PAMLA 2022)

updated: 
Friday, March 11, 2022 - 11:40am
Carlos Tkacz / University of Nevada, Las Vegas
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 15, 2022

Speculative fiction has become the space in which imaginings of the future proliferate not totally free of the specter of history but free from the fatalism that subaltern communities often are forced to cope with under the weight of that history. As such, Indigenous writers, both in the US and in the rest of the world, have turned to the genre as a way to construct futurisms of survivance and resistance. If the weight of history has and does manifest itself in violence, both physical and otherwise, then the question of autonomy is central, for violence is perhaps the most basic violation of the individual and the communal.

Genres Against Markets

updated: 
Tuesday, March 8, 2022 - 7:02pm

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, July 11, 2022

This week-long workshop will bring together both critical and creative writers to support one another in the development of new written work across a wide range of “popular” genres, forms and approaches. “Genres Against the Market” aims to foster a temporary community to encourage radical writers to explore new methods for reaching unconventional audiences toward a critique of economic limitation and possibility. Leaving aside the familiar form of the conventional academic essay and monograph, we aim to host a gathering to explore how radical ideas that challenge reigning forms of social and economic power can be expressed and broadcast using “popular” formats of writing.
