HUNGER AND WASTE

Volume 39, Number 2, Fall 2021

Issue Editor: Isabelle Meuret

This issue of Literature and Medicine will interrogate expressions of hunger and waste in both literary and biomedical contexts.

Hunger is a physiological disposition, a daily preoccupation, and a metaphor for desire. On another scale, global hunger—leading to malnutrition and starvation—affects hundreds of millions living in poverty. As for waste, the dearth, careless use, or squandering of resources, together with climate change and other environmental challenges, have raised new concerns about food supplies and unequal access.

“‘Getting lost’ still takes us somewhere; and being lost is a way of inhabiting space by

registering what is not familiar: being lost can in its turn become a familiar feeling [...] The

familiar is an effect of inhabitance; we are not simply in the familiar, but rather the familiar is

shaped by actions that reach out toward objects that are already within reach.”

Scholars at all stages of their career are invited to take part in a one-day interdisciplinary symposium hosted by the School of English, University Cork, to explore the diverse roles historically played by contagion/outbreak narratives and disease metaphors. We invite 15-minute papers that engage with a variety of cultural forms, such as literature, film, television and photography.  Examples of relevant topics include the function served by fear of contagion in the othering process, contemporary vampirism as a metaphor for sexually-transmitted diseases, zombiism as a metaphor for capitalism, and why epidemics and plagues that stay confined to Africa or Asia rarely form the plots of novels or films.

CFP: Letters from Black Faculty

This collection seeks unfiltered, unedited letters from Black academics, intellectuals, and faculty activists that address structural racism and individual experience in the academy, and the tenuous divide between the professional, the political, and the personal. What we are looking for are those letters sent to department heads, college administrators, fellow faculty and trustees that have as their goal holding institutions to their words when they say that “Black Lives Matter”.

Movement: 2021 Medieval Studies Student Colloquium

Wednesday, October 28, 2020 - 1:20pm
Medieval Studies Student Colloquium at Cornell
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 15, 2021

The Medieval Studies Program at Cornell University is pleased to announce its thirty-first annual graduate student colloquium (MSSC). The conference will take place on the 26th and the 27th of March, to be held virtually over Zoom.

This year’s colloquium focuses on the theme of movement. Movement denotes the movement of peoples, cultures, thoughts and goods, the migration of plants and of animals. What happens to movement when it is frozen in stone (the swoop of hair across a person’s face in a marble statue)? How does an idea change when it is translated from one language to another? We are interested in movement defined broadly and represented across a range of disciplines.

Critical Essays about Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 31, 2021

Overview: In 2010, Cartoon Network debuted a new animated series called Adventure Time, and within just a few short years, the show had become both a pop culture phenomenon and a critical darling; perhaps this reception is best exemplified by the words of the George Foster Peabody Awards Board of Jurors, which praised the show for “subtly teach[ing] lessons about growing up, accepting responsibility, and becoming who you’re meant to be.” But despite this admiration, not many works of scholarship have looked at the show through a critical lens.

After the success of the Folk Horror in the Twenty First Century conference hosted by Falmouth University, we are holding another related conference in 2021.

 

We are aiming to have a face to face conference at the beautiful Falmouth Campus in Cornwall. With sub-tropical gardens and the beach nearby, there will be a ‘Welcome to Dark Falmouth’ cemetery walk above the lovely Swanpool lake, an art exhibition, a gig and street food in place of the more usual staid conference dinner. If we’re going to beat Covid we want to do it in style!*

Newton and modern science, especially Mathematics and Physics, have completely changed the concepts of space and movement. Unlike other thinkers of that century, among whom Immanuel Kant stands for his remarkable thought, the new concepts of space and movement don’t seem to have influenced Diderot’s thinking effectively.

“Climate change,” as former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Mary Robinson so astutely notes, “requires a feminist solution.” Global heating is causing rising sea levels, extreme weather events, and the circulation of new pathogens. It impacts economically, socially, and politically marginalized people and communities most severely. Women and children, the majority of the world’s poor, are already disproportionately burdened by its effects. In the Global North, the climate breakdown compounds the environmental racism that many communities of color already experience.
