Reconceptualizing Religion in Early African American Literature (Deadline Extended)

updated: 
Wednesday, June 26, 2024 - 11:17am
Special Issue of Early American Studies (UPenn)
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, July 31, 2024

For a special issue on early African American literature and religion, Early American Studies (UPenn) seek article-length contributions on how 18th and 19th century Black writers reconceptualized religion beyond the telos of the nation-state. The roles of religion and religious thought in early Black culture have often been understood within the dualistic frame of resistance whereby Christianity, the dominant religion of colonial and antebellum American society, is both employed by masters to subjugate the enslaved and employed by the slaved to resist their masters’ subjugation of them.

Extended Deadline ‘A word after a word after a word is power’: The Hulu Adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale (2017-2024): A one-day multidisciplinary symposium.

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, July 31, 2024

We are inviting proposals for 20-minute conference papers on the Hulu Adaptation of The Handmaid’s Tale, Margaret Atwood’s famous 1985 dystopia. The novel was published during Ronald Reagan’s troubled presidency, which witnessed second-wave feminism, anti-pornography, pro-life and pro-legal abortion campaigns, but the first season of the adaptation was likewise released during troubled times, a few months after the controversial election of Donald Trump as the 50th President of the USA, which created an equally tense political scene. Women across the world were protesting for female and human rights, often dressed in the now iconic Handmaid’s costume.

Gladiator 2 Edited Collection

Wednesday, January 15, 2025

The twentieth anniversary of Ridley Scott’s Gladiator (2000) was an important moment in film history, for it not only marked a great film and work of art, but it also reminded audiences how peplum and historical epics still mattered. The edited collection “A Hero Will Endure”: Essays at the Twentieth Anniversary of ‘Gladiator’ (2023) provided insights on the film two decades after its release.

Yet now there is a sequel with a November 2024 release. This CFP therefore serves to build on the work done in the 2023 essays and provide a further avenue of exploration for connections between the two films as well as innovative readings of Gladiator 2 on its own.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

The continuation of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, political repressions, crackdowns on LGBTQ+, women’s, ethnic and religious communities’ rights, environmental crises, and the ramifications of colonial legacies have marked the past several years in the region of Central and Eastern Europe, Russia, Central Asia, and the Caucasus. While indispensable academic research is being carried out to investigate various forms of political, social, cultural, and economic oppression and violence, it is crucial to highlight positive alternatives nurtured in these hostile contexts.

Queer Horror: A Companion

Monday, September 30, 2024

“To create a broad analogy, monster is to ‘normality’ as homosexual is to heterosexual” (Benshoff, 1997). This quote, well worn within the pages of academic criticism, speaks to how the connection between queer identity and the horror genre is now so established as to become indivisible. From Frankenstein’s Creature to Dracula, the Babadook to Jennifer Check, in fiction and in film these monstrous queers “live in a world that hates them. They’ve adapted, they’ve learned to conceal themselves. They’ve survived” (Machado, 2020). Kirsty Logan, in the Foreword to It Came From the Closet, suggests that “horror [never] gives us LGBTQIA+ people accurate representation.
