Association for Philosophy and Literature Conference “Borders/Freedom/Civility” Gettysburg, PA, June 12-15, 2024
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 28, 2024

We are seeking speakers to fill up a panel at the APL Conference “Borders/Freedom/Civility” at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, June 12-15, 2024, on the question of how science fiction aesthetics, the experience of science fiction, and the experience of otherness in science fiction relate. Science Fiction is one of the foremost genres exploring the relation between the alien other as a way of thinking through interhuman relations across borders, but, as a liminally “high” literary form, it is often excluded from discussions of the aesthetic experience of literature as a driving force of intellectual engagement.

The Journal of Gaming & Virtual Worlds invites submissions for a guest edited special issue exploring consent in games.

As discussions around consent and entitlement swirl around the public sphere, game scholars and designers have a critical opportunity to explore this crucial cultural conversation through the lens of games.

Edited Collection: Fairy Tales and Social Critique in Adaptations by Women Writers

This collection considers how women writers subvert normative structures in their adaptations of fairy tales. Though fairy tales, as a genre, have long been associated with conservative values, writers like Anne Sexton , Angela Carter, and Emma Donoghue, among others reimagine fairy tales as the instrument of social critique of traditional structures. The essays in this collection consider the way women writers rewrite mythologies inherited from the past, charting the decline of aristocratic systems and entrenched class structures. 

Interested Contributors should send their chapter, an abstract, and a CV to the editor, Dr. Laura Alexander at

There is an extractivist monoculture of the way of producing images that performs imagery itself as a mere representation of a given world and which has the effect of homogenising pictures and, therefore, the possibility of performing worlds. How can we address these issues?

 

CFP on "The Everyday" (Deadline: March 15, 2024)

updated: 
Wednesday, January 31, 2024 - 4:02pm
Sanglap: Journal of Literary and Cultural Inquiry (10.2, June 2024)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 15, 2024

In the last few years, the Covid-19 pandemic has created an unprecedented experience of the everyday in us. We were all locked up at home somewhere in the world spending time with family or our own selves in isolation. In the absence of the ‘busyness’ of routine public activities, life showed down. In the tremendous fear of whether we would survive the disaster or feel anxiously for our family based elsewhere, we noticed the slow spiralling out of each day, sometimes at the level of the moment, in our lives. Slowness, an awareness of our body and movement, and a deep noticing of our surroundings and our loved ones – in short, a re-cognition of the everyday marked our ‘species’ life.

Call for Papers (Issue 35): Emotion and Affect

updated: 
Wednesday, January 31, 2024 - 4:02pm
FORUM
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, May 4, 2023

Affect theory turns our attention towards a re-contextualisation of emotional and affective experiences within past and contemporary constructions of race, gender and sexuality. It leads us towards the para-rational zones of lived experience (sensations, disturbances, intensities, etc) and offers new interdisciplinary methodologies. The study of emotionality interrogates the boundary between human and non-human, with contemporary research in ecological feeling playing with the border between humans and other species, nature and geological formations. This issue is interested in how these contemporary and modern affective debates have impacted, and continue to impact, the ways in which we think about feeling.

In July 2023, a tech startup called “Simulation Inc” released an AI technology capable of generating entire t.v. episodes—including dialogue, voice acting, animation, and editing—from nothing more than a two-sentence prompt. Somewhat oddly (and provoking suspicion that the project might be a hoax or internet prank), Simulation Inc’s website lists a fake address under their contact info: 500 Baudrillard Drive, San Francisco, CA.

I was, besides, endued with a figure hideously deformed and loathsome; I was not even of the same nature as man. I was more agile than they and could subsist upon coarser diet; I bore the extremes of heat and cold with less injury to my frame; my stature far exceeded theirs. When I looked around I saw and heard of none like me. Was I, then, a monster, a blot upon the earth, from which all men fled and whom all men disowned?” - Frankenstein, Mary Shelley
