East Asian pop culture has been increasingly in vogue across the globe since the 1990s, and the Hallyu wave of the early 2000s has further propelled the momentum of this movement. With the growth of this incredible cultural enterprise arose the global fandoms, paving way to the birth of novel fan cultures and traditions and, furthermore, to a global tribe of its own. This presence, which is felt internationally, calls for a space of parrhesia, of breaching certain boundaries, of destroying normative assumptions, of suggesting deviancies, of reclaiming spaces, and so on. The BTS revolution exemplifies this changing geo-cultural flux rather well.

Studies in Musical Theatre Special Issue: Disability in Music Theatre

updated: 
Saturday, March 23, 2024 - 8:31pm
Studies in Musical Theatre
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 1, 2024

Disability and musicals have a complicated relationship. Usually comprised of athletic, triple-threat actors, the musical theatre genre is preoccupied with health and wellness–often figuring disability as a stumbling block to a musical’s slickly choreographed world. At the heart of musicals like Side ShowThe Hunchback of Notre Dame, and The Light in the Piazza, a disabled character’s non-normative status is of narrative consequence. However, these inclusions of disabled characters with diegetic disabilities are often only remarkable because of their societally defined excessive existence.

Crime Fiction in the Multilingual Classroom (Teaching Forum, Clues: A Journal of Detection)
Organizer: Barbara Pezzotti

Crime fiction sheds a light on different cultures and societies, as well as challenges assumptions about gender, class, race, and ethnicity. By luring students into thinking that popular fiction is an easy read, an increasing number of language teachers have used crime fiction to teach both foreign languages and cultures. At the same time, crime fiction instructors have expanded their syllabi to include texts in translation that tackle important issues such as gender violence, environmental concerns, and racism. This Clues Teaching Forum invites short essays that address the following questions:

Global South: Incarceration and Resistance

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 1, 2024

The editors of this special issue of the Global South are seeking contributors whose work engages with questions of incarceration and movements for resistance and abolition. As many major works regarding the development of mass incarceration in the United States draw explicit links between the development of the prison and the legacies of U.S. slavery and Jim Crow practices, this issue is, rather (or also), interested in examining the development of the prison-industrial complex through a global south perspective.

HEL and Writing Studies Presentation Thread at SHEL-13 Conference

updated: 
Saturday, March 23, 2024 - 7:27pm
Studies in the History of the English Language Conference
deadline for submissions:

We invite proposals for the second HEL (History of the English Language) and Writing Studies thread at the 13th Studies in the History of the English Language (SHEL) conference at Fairleigh Dickinson University in Madison, New Jersey, October 17-20, 2024.

 

The HEL and Writing Studies thread will explore ways in which the study of language change and variation can contribute to rhetoric and writing studies, and vice versa. When proposing, keep in mind that the history of the English language extends from the origins of the language to very recent history, so proposals that engage contemporary language use through a historical lens are welcome.
