The post-socialist reality in East Europe profoundly changed the rural and urban settlements. Abandoned factories, vacant villages, unfinished housing projects, decline and abandonment are some common threads that appear in post-socialist rural and urban landscapes. De-industrialisation and the post-1990s capitalist rules left small towns and villages empty and decayed. In the former socialist countries of Africa, Latin America, and south-east Asia rural and urban decline has also been linked with the history of colonial expansion, the destruction of nature, and racial violence. While some communities have embraced spatial regeneration trends, others remain ruined, marginalised, and declined.
“Human and Non-Human Animals in 19th century English Literature.”
According to John Berger in his famous essay, “Why Look at Animals?” (1977), there was a fundamental shift in the ways in which Europeans imagined and interacted with non-human animals (domesticated and wild) in the 19th century. The nature of this shift, Berger argues, was a symptomatic consequence of the social, cultural, and demographic transformations brought about by industrialization, urbanization, and capitalism.

Call for Papers (CFP)
for Volume VII Number ii (July 2022 issue)
In today's culture, it's almost impossible to avoid "monsters." Straight from mythology and legend, these fantastic creatures traipse across our television screens and the pages of our books. Over centuries and across cultures, the inhuman have represented numerous cultural fears and, in more recent times, desires. They are Other. They are Us. This panel will explore monsters--whether they be mythological, extraterrestrial, or man-made--that populate fiction and film, delving into the cultural, psychological and/or theoretical implications.

This panel intends to examine the works of Muslim American poets, novelists, playwrights, musicians, performers, filmmakers, and visual artists.

Talking Heads have proved to be one of the most influential of any of the groups associated with the punk and new
wave scene that flourished in New York in the mid-1970s. They released a number of epoch-defining albums (Talking
Heads 77, Fear of Music, Remain in Light, Little Creatures); they spawned influential and successful offshoots- David
Byrne’s collaboration with Brian Eno on My Life in the Bush of Ghosts; Tom Tom Club (Tina Weymouth’s and Chris
Frantz’s side project); and their forays into other media (music video; the concert film Stop Making Sense; and the
feature film True Stories) were, for the most part, both critically and commercially successful. After the band’s

“Animals of a Different Color: Animals and Race in Literature and Film”
This year’s “Animals in Literature and Film” panel at the Midwest Modern Language Association’s annual meeting (November 17–20, 2022 in Minneapolis, MN) invites papers engaging the conference’s theme of “Post-Now,” specifically how works of literature or film use animals as a vehicle for engaging with, responding to, and/or implicating racial/racist discourses.
The marking of borders and boundaries aims at structuring and naming spaces – both geographical and symbolic – as distinguishable entities. This naming, however, is subject to the incessant erasure and redrawing of lines of demarcation and redefining of spaces and identities, the demolition and reorganization of power structures, and the repositioning of the centre and the margins. Despite attempts at disciplining territories, spaces and identities, transgressions of boundaries and borders are inevitable. And the passages created by differing boundaries constitute the most contested fields. Nomenclature, therefore, remains a problem without a closure.

New Volume: Activist Archivists and Archival Activisms: Documenting 21st Century Social Justice
Seeking paper proposals for a panel on The Child in Utopia for the Society for Utopian Studies, November 9-13, 2022, in Charleston, SC.
If how a society is judged by how it treats its children, what can we make of the representation of children in utopias and dystopias? How are our cultural perspectives of childhood influenced by utopian or dystopian notions? Are utopias themselves childlike? How are childhood and utopia linked? Are these static or dynamic? These and many other questions can be explored in this panel. The conference’s theme is “make, unmake, remake”—which echoes the path of maturation. Papers dealing with any aspect of child culture, stemming from any academic or creative discipline, are welcome.
The Comparative Literature section of the MMLA invites proposals for papers that engage with any aspect of this year's conference theme, "Post-Now." Building on the conference CFP's proposal to discuss the role of humanities in imagining a different future, this section asks these corollary questions: What is the role of comparative literature in these changing times? How can comparative perspectives and critical theory confront the most critical challenges in the 21st century? How should we imagine our roles as teachers and scholars of comparative literature when national and ethical boundaries are being deconstructed and reconstructed?
The Routledge Studies in Edward Albee and American Theatre book series aims to examine mid-to-late 20th Century American theatre; its most influential and important playwright, Edward Albee; and his contemporaries. This series is equally dedicated to both dramatic literature and theatrical performance, thinking about the American theatre in its totality. This series wants to examine the milieu of American theatre during the course of Albee’s six-decade-long career. Additionally, Edward Albee was a great champion of supporting other playwrights; therefore, in keeping with the mission of the Edward Albee Society, this series is especially interested in books about playwrights that were influenced by Albee.
Submission period for the PAMLA 2022 Conference is now open. Please consider submitting a proposal to the Critical Theory panel. The description of the panel is included below. Here is the link to submit a paper: https://pamla.ballastacademic.com/Home/S/18551

In a rapid changing world that we live nowadays, interdisciplinary studies are at crossroads between tradition and innovation.Scholarly activities are at the intersection of computing or digital technologies and the disciplines of the humanities and social sciences. Studies on common practices of research and analysis in the discipline is now questioned in terms of the over whelming spread of technology.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) based approaches have become increasingly popular as “solutions” to curb the extent of mis-, dis- mal-information, hate speech, online violence and harassment on social media. The pandemic and the ensuing work from home policy forced many platforms to shift to automated moderation which further highlighted the inefficacy of existing models (Gillespie, 2020) to deal with the surge in misinformation and harassment.
In the context of the social sciences and humanities, research on islands from a variety of disciplines is primarily characterised by spatiality as a fundamental determinant of island cultures. The frequent emphasis on spatiality has resulted in representations of islands as constrained both in everyday life and geographically and marked by a historicised present and a belated modernity. In doing so, the transformative and dynamic character of culture has often been neglected, as well as the heterogeneity of the lived experience of island communities.
