deadline for submissions:

This "call for chapters" is for a collection through Lexington Press (which has approved the concept and is awaiting the chapter list). The focus of this collection is mentorship as portrayed in shonen anime and film.

Shonen anime and film is loaded with mentors. Some are insightful, benevolent, and effective. Boku no Hero Academia’s All Might is one such mentor. His treatment of Midoriya is founded in compassion. And, All Might himself is a beloved leader. Who he is before the camera is the same as when there are no cameras to be found (excluding his physical transformation, of course). He is a model mentor.

While interest in postcolonialism has spanned a vast number of sub-fields and disciplines such as psychological explorations of resistance, the persistence of colonial topography in post-colonial governmentality, etc. not much attention has been given to the domain of Indian spirituality as an effective counter-discourse to the Colonial epistemic tradition.

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 16, 2023

No matter how many years have passed since the end of the Golden Age of Hollywood, this era never seems to leave the popular imagination. James Dean and Judy Garland remain household names; modern celebrities still seek to emulate the glamour of this bygone time; and audiences still go to see contemporary biopics and television shows about stars such as Marilyn Monroe, Joan Crawford, and Bette Davis. There is something about this moment in American moviemaking that grabbed the public’s attention and has never let go, even as the larger cinematic landscape continues to change dramatically.

WATER

The sea is calm tonight.

The tide is full, the moon lies fair

Upon the straits; on the French coast the light

Gleams and is gone; the cliffs of England stand,

Glimmering and vast, out in the tranquil bay.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 4, 2022

Modern Language Studies, the journal of the Northeast Modern Language Association, is seeking reviews for the winter and summer 2023 issues. In recent years, the temperature has risen around free speech debates, and books on censorship and free speech come out with such frequency that it is hard to keep abreast of the new scholarship. I am interested in receiving reviews and review essays on academic books that relate to free speech. The books to be reviewed can center on any historical, geographical, or disciplinary context, and the reviews and review essays can be written from (almost) any theoretical perspective.Keywords: free speech, freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom of the press, liberty of the press, censorship.

The productivity of ‘negative emotions’ in postcolonial literatures

updated: 
Tuesday, November 8, 2022 - 9:35am
Isabelle Wentworth / University of New South Wales
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, December 1, 2022

Emotions, affect, and moods do not happen to us. Rather, we are our emotions: they configure our manner of relating to, and existing within the world. Ontologies of emotion—in their embodied and symbolic dimensions—alter our perceptions, experiences, and predictions of ourselves and our environment in ways which problematize inside/outside and mind/body dualities. This is also true of the so-called ‘negative emotions’. Studies of negative affect abound in the humanities, from Aristotle’s fear and pity, Heidegger’s angst, and Robert Burton’s melancholy, to Sartre’s nausea, Germaine Greer’s rage, Kristeva’s disgust, and, more recently, Sianne Ngai’s “ugly feelings.”
