Call for Chapters: Performance in the Gutter: Cultural Construction and the Graphic Novel

 

This special edited collection responds to the increasing interest in comics generated by readers and scholars in the last decade. From cartoons to graphic novels to manga—the variety of comics in combination with an awareness of their expressive potential has generated robust, critical conversations about how these forms work and contribute to our social, cultural, and political understanding.  

 

SPECTRA Issue 6.2: Call for Papers: Critiques of Resilience

SPECTRA
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, December 18, 2017

‘Resilience’ has gained traction in recent discourses: whether the rise of nationalist/populist movements throughout many parts of the world, disastrous consequences of climate change, continuous debates around online security and network integrity, or the stresses of self-optimization under increasing economic precarization, resilience, so it seems, is produced as an ideal type to confront these conditions.

Issue 6.2 features an interview with Julian Reid, whose most recent work concerns modes of resilience and indigeneity.

SPECTRA calls for papers that critically engage with the notion of resilience by way of integrating theoretical, empirical, literary, and ethnographic research.

As a result, The Lemon Project: A Journey of Reconciliation and the 50-Year Commemoration of African Americans in Residence Committee are teaming up for “Desegregating Higher Education in Virginia: William and Mary in Historical Context.” As the first three women to live on campus at William & Mary were moving in, other colleges and universities in Virginia and elsewhere were experiencing similar change. What were their stories? What was their process? How did they keep moving forward?

GUEST EDITOR:

Dr Thomas Knowles (Birmingham City University)

DESCRIPTION

J. G. Ballard’s fictional worlds are alive with making, remaking, repurposing and reinvigorating: ‘survival kits’ composed of unlike objects; the rekindling of creativity amongst the beach-fatigued denizens of Vermilion Sands; the surrealist constructs of ‘The Unlimited City’; the wound mappings and death scenarios of Crash; the consumerist totems and shrines of The Unlimited Dream Company, and more.
