TRANSFORMATIONS 

 

JOIN CEA IN ATLANTA!

 

The Big Peach. The ATL. The Dogwood City. Atlanta is a city always reimagining itself. The city’s history parallels America's own complicated and continuing story. This spirit of TRANSFORMATION—the theme of CEA 2024—is captured in the city's seal featuring a phoenix rising from the ashes. The image captures Atlanta's resilience as a city in how it emerged from the devastation of the Civil War to become a modern industrial metropolis, the center of the movement for Civil Rights, and what the New York Times describes as “hip-hop’s center of gravity.”

 

Three Day National Conference from December 13-15,2023 on Food and Culture: Transforming Perspectives and Paradigms

updated: 
Tuesday, October 31, 2023 - 3:19am
Dept of Humanities. Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, November 6, 2023

Food, the basic amenity of all living beings, is beginning to be perceived from multiple cultural and ideological perspectives, which leads to the broadening of its theoretical concerns as well as its praxis. With the transforming curriculum modifications put forward by NEP for encouraging cross-cultural inquiries, interdisciplinary research, and multidisciplinary collaborations, cutting-edge research in food studies would lead to more rigorous academic deliberations on both the sociocultural significance of culinary studies and the politics of the everyday. Culinary is the most pertinent and bridging agency that engages various sociocultural spaces.

Call for Book Chapters: Lights On: Staging Post-Millennial Cultural Aspects in American Women Drama (with reference Pulitzer Prize winning plays) * working title

updated: 
Monday, October 30, 2023 - 12:27am
Dr. SUBHASSHRI. R
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, November 30, 2023

The proposed book looks for chapters exploring the contemporary Pulitzer Prize winning American women-authored plays and their engagement with post-millennial cultural dynamics. This volume / book wants to showcase women playwrights’ responses to and shaping the cultural landscape of American society of the 21st century. By examining themes, characters, narratives, and dramatic techniques, the chapters want to address a nuanced understanding of how American women drama reflects and challenges the complexities of changing times of the society.

Chapters proposals invited on the following plays and themes:

Breaking the Silence: Minority languages in contemporary music as reclamation, resistance and revitalisation

updated: 
Thursday, October 26, 2023 - 1:27pm
University of Waikato
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, February 1, 2024

We invite extended abstract proposals for chapters that explore the significance of songs sung in marginalised or minority languages within contemporary music genres (from indige-punk, metal, hardcore, hip hop, rap, pop and so on). For so many minority cultures, language signifies survival. Language presence in contemporary music often constitutes a conscious form of language activism, in terms of freedom of expression and/or a deliberate effort to revive language through increasing its presence, value and usage. As Huang (2022) notes, through modern music the perception of minority languages can be shifted “from traditional, inferior, and underprivileged to international, modern, and confident” (p. 44).
