Borrowers and Lenders Special Issue: Shakespeare and Gaming

Monday, April 30, 2018 - 9:16am
Borrowers and Lenders
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, August 15, 2018

In what game designer Eric Zimmerman calls our 'ludic century', the proliferation of games of all sorts makes them a schema for (re)understanding the modes and habits of cultural production. Indeed, the practices of Shakespearean appropriation are frequently products of playful engagements, whereby the appropriator traverses the text, building virtual or imaginary worlds that interact with the received Shakespearean corpus, its margins, and its outliers in creative ways. Moreover, just as play may be likened to appropriation, aspects of Shakespeare games and game development might reflect and/or challenge traditional modes of humanistic inquiry, and adaptive play has the capacity to influence critical reading practices.

Panel for SAMLA 90, "Women of the Avant-Garde and Political Dissent: Resisting Power from the Margins"

Monday, April 30, 2018 - 9:15am
SAMLA 90, November 2nd-4th, "Fighters from the Margins: Socio-Political Activists and Their Allies"
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 4, 2018

This panel examines the role of avant-garde women in confronting models of gender, domesticity and political practices safeguarded by patriarchal society. From the margins of vanguardism women effectively engaged in syndicalist and anarchist movements that reacted to state politics, while urging the importance of launching social reforms and radical art. This panel will thus provide an overview of artists who participated in a variety of experimental trends such as Cubism, Futurism, Expressionism, Imagism, Vorticism, Dadaism and Surrealism, among others.

Correspondences is an international, peer-reviewed online journal dedicated to the academic study of esotericism. The editors acknowledge that the use of this umbrella term for a widely variant field of alternate scientific and religious ideas is problematic. Correspondences therefore maintains an openness toward varying interpretations of the boundaries of the field of esotericism and encourages submissions from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds, such as History of Religions, Sociology, Art History, Philosophy, History of Science, Literature, Musicology, and Cultural Studies.

Reconciliation through Cross-Cultural Collaboration

Following milestone moments in Canadian history, namely the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, it has become imperative that all members of the nation should be implicated in processes of conciliation and reconciliation. This turn must include immigrants, migrants, and refugees who diaspored to Canada through colonial networks of their own, and whose presence has been largely overlooked in the “difficult binary” constructed between colonizer and the colonized in both historical and emergent discourses on decolonization. How might these postcolonial subjects enter into artistic or curatorial collaboration with Indigenous peoples of Canada that both acknowledge cultural diversity and their shared colonial beginnings?
