Owing to a variety of reasons, a number of entries in London's East End: A Short Encyclopedia (under contract, McFarland) that were initially assigned have now become available. I am currently look for writers in a number of different categories, including people, film and literature, architecture, periodicals, major events, television, music, and art. Entries range from 50-2000 words with most following on the lower end of the spectrum. Interested individuals are urged to contact the editor for a contents list and style guide. A description of the encyclopedia appears below. Established scholars, early career researchers, and advanced graduate students—those who, in a US context, have passed their qualifying exams—are welcome.
This special issue of The Projector, edited by guest editor Jamie Ann Rogers, seeks submissions focused on contemporary community media as activist and aesthetic practices. In 2005, Kevin Howley described community media as “popular and strategic interventions into contemporary media culture committed to the democratization of media structures, forms, and practices.” In revisiting this definition 15 years later, the holistic aim of this special issue is to interrogate shifts in various community media making environments brought about in the past decade.

Submissions are now open for the 2020-2021 issue of the Digital Literature Review, “Food Matters in Literature and Culture.” We welcome original, engaging submissions that consider representations of food in literature, film, television, or popular culture. In particular, we are interested in scholarly essays that consider food as a vehicle for exploring issues of inequity and empowerment, including but not limited to race, gender, class, ability, sexuality, and nationality. For example, how does food function as an expression of identity, as well as a common language bridging sociocultural, political, and economic gaps?
Call for Pakistani Stories: Fiction and Creative Nonfiction
Deadline: January 15, 2021
The long nineteenth century witnessed the rapid expansion and modernization of cities around the globe. It is often also heralded, by critics working with Anglo-American literature, at least, as the starting point for studies of the fantastic. Nonetheless, despite the claims of critics such as Rosemary Jackson and Stephen Prickett that modern fantasy is, in part, a reaction to industrialization, few projects have explored nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century fantasies’ engagement with the urban, and fewer still have attempted to address the intertwinement of fantasy and the city across cultures, a gap this volume seeks to fill.

Constant transformation has been the norm in the new digital media environment since its inception. During the 2020 health crisis, the impact of this ever-changing digital world in our daily lives has been especially notable. Due to quarantine measures, the only opportunity to interact with friends and to consume culture was to rely on social networks, streaming services and video conferencing softwares. Web-based cultural activities have affected people’s relationships with cyberspace: many have visited museums, seen award ceremonies, and even been to concerts online. In other words, we are never disconnected from the Internet (DeNardis 2020).

Hip-hop is one of the most successful forms of global cultural production today. Since its emergence in the Bronx neighborhood of New York City, it has spread around the world and exerted a considerable impact not only on pop culture, but also on social debates around race, class, language, nationality, gender, and a range of other issues. One topic that is rarely discussed, however, is the relationship between hip-hop and the environment.

- devoted to literary, historical, film and cultural studies of the English-speaking world
- an international scholarly journal with an international audience available at major research centers and libraries throughout the world
