The proposed anthology of critical writings on 20th-century war-literature and war-movies is likely to be published from an old university-press in the northern U.K. The last date of submission is 31 July 2022.
Prospective writers are being requested to submit critical approaches to the literatures and films of the First World War, the Spanish Civil War, the Second World War, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and the Bosnian War in not less than 6000 words, with M.L.A.-style of citation to the editor at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as they are completed. Prior to that, abstracts of the proposals could be sent. This is a very old project, and is scheduled to be completed this year.
Professional development prepares humanities majors for post-baccalaureate success and undermines myths about weak career outcomes, yet too often, it remains an afterthough rather than an integral component of undergraduate curricula. Furthermore, increasing professional development opportunities for undergraduates also has programmatic benefits for recruitment and retention, not least becuase such programs better equip faculty and students to more effectively articulate the value of the humanites to public life, and the applicability of humanities across public, private, and volunteer sectors.

CALL FOR PAPERS:
We are editing a Handbook of the Short Story in the World for Brill as part of the series Handbooks of Literary and Cultural Studies, and we are looking for chapters on some specific topics (see below). We are well aware that the chapters are broad in their scope. Some of these chapters should have a comparativist approach that covers several countries. For that reason, we are looking for potential contributors who have expertise in the field to write a synthetical approach to the topic while at the same time being analytical in the discussion of concrete short stories. Ideally a chapter should offer an overview of the topic, and then discuss three or four authors and/ or stories.
The academic journal Queer Studies in Media & Popular Culture, published by Intellect Ltd., seeks an established or emerging scholar to serve as its Reviews Editor. We particularly seek individuals with expansive interests in the areas addressed by the journal, evidence of an accomplished or promising record of scholarship, and familiarity with the editing process. The successful candidate will be responsible for recruitment of three to five reviews per issue of books, other media, or older works deserving a new look; editing those reviews; and securing author permissions to publish them. A small stipend from the publisher is provided.

As the world begins to come back together after years of social distancing, quarantine, and uncertainty, the English GraduateStudent Association’s 32nd Annual Mardi Gras Conference at Louisiana State University will be considering the relationship between environments and communities. Due to the continued presence of Covid, our conference this year will be conducted in a hybrid format. Our theme for this year's conference is“de/Constructing Environments and Embodying Communities.”The idea of environments and communities can be interpreted in a variety of interdisciplinary modes. Despite ongoing climate and public health crises, the renewal of shared spaces asks us to interrogate how our environments and communities are constructed.
Caste and caste-based practices are understood to be predominantly associated with the Indian subcontinent and broadly Hinduism. This structural, exclusionary process operates on entrenched, subconscious notions of heritable hierarchy, trans-historically modified by capitalism, environmental progressions, liberal democratization, globalization and other complex socioeconomic rocesses. The changing dynamics of these complex social patterns are equally susceptible to postmodern discourses of categories and identities, decolonial and postcolonial critical movements and political imaginaries that range from reification of status quo to challenging the immutability of the nation state.
Meridian Literary Journal is currently accepting new submissions. The journal publishes poems, short stories and scholarly articles.
Meridian Literary Journal aims to be a truly literary platform fulfilling the primary aim of Literature to entertain through the publication of original poetry and short fictions.

What happens when the images come into the world? With or without its consent, civil society has been constantly imaged, recorded, documented, archived and exhibited. This omnipresence of images created, circulated, and displayed merits an analysis of the multiplicity of its forms and its roots.
