In Ellen Forney’s autobiographical comic Marbles: Mania, Depression, Michelangelo and Me (2012), the author narrates her journey following her bipolar disorder diagnosis, a journey that sets off an exploration into how her art is connected to that of the “crazy artists” of the past. Just like Vincent van Gogh and Sylvia Plath, whose work has been connected to their mental health status, Forney explores how her condition possibly influenced her art.

As the vision of an "academic career" changes, what are the options for someone who might be looking for a different path, or is looking to change careers after spending time in the academy?
Postcolonial Interventions invites academic articles for the upcoming June 2021 issue of the Journal which will be an Open Issue.
While the COVID-19 pandemic has plunged the world into similar processes of distress, loss and anxiety, it has also exacerbated authoritarian inclinations in various nation-states, widened socio-economic disparities and hardened competing fundamentalisms. It is hoped that the prospective submissions will take into account these recent upheavals alongside the usual explorations of literary and cultural representations focusing on postcolonial concerns from various corners of the globe.
In Passage : The International Journal of Writing and Mobility, the journal of the Department of English of the University of Boumerdes (Algeria), seeks essays in English or French for its fourth issue, to be released in December 2021.

The subjects it seeks to investigate include but are not restricted to:
- Literary genres and movements
- Travel literature and intercultural contact.
Queer and trans people are overrepresented in the foster care system yet there are few initiatives to improve conditions for LGBTQ youth in care.

Hybrid Pedagogy Books is pleased to announce this call for contributors for a new reader which will explore critical instructional design, a humanizing and problem-posing digital design approach grounded in the critical pedagogy of Paulo Freire. The collection will seek to feature voices from all over academia—designers and technologists, and also faculty, staff, and students—with a specific focus on voices from BIPOC, LGBTQ+, disabled, neurodivergent and other marginalized communities.
We are putting together an edited collection on cultural productions by children, theorizing children as creators and exploring children’s cultural production as a crucial, albeit often understudied, area of children’s literature, media, and cultural studies. We have most of the contributors in place, but we are seeking 2 to 3 additional chapters to round out the collection--specifically chapters on performance, music, visual art, digital media, film, television, and/or handicrafts from any time period, with special attention to BIPOC children. Please note that we are seeking work on children, not teenagers.
