Friday, January 20, 2023 - 9:31am
Sanglap: Journal of Literary and Cultural Inquiry
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2023

In a 2019 piece in The Guardian, Indian writer-activist Arundhati Roy says of the space, created by the literary: “It’s a fragile place in some ways, but an indestructible one. When it’s broken, we rebuild it. Because we need shelter. I very much like the idea of literature that is needed.” This idea of literature as a fragile shelter that needs constant rebuilding throws open the question of the literary communities. What is the nature of this community of readers and writers constructed by the act of literature? How can literature have a purchase on public culture, if at all? With the onset of social media, can we see literature in the 21st century as a communitarian exercise anymore?

This edited volume will explore myriad ways in which colleges/universities have worked with and against their communities, covering such issues as neighborhood gentrification, town-gown conflicts, innovation alliances, local food programs, and the existence (or lack of) access pipelines for local students. This project has been motivated by the recognition that, “From their founding, universities introduced class differences to cities in ways that only intensified as the institutions became key platforms for social and economic

REDEN journal
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, April 15, 2023

Special dossier | edited by Marica Orrù and Igor Juricevic

A fundamental element of the American imaginary, superhero and heroic narratives have seen a new apogee since the turn of the century. New and old heroes and heroines have populated popular culture, giving rise to a variety of texts that tackle diversity, nostalgia, and the need for imaginaries and narratives that help us deal with the struggles inherent to our current times.

This two-part dossier, co-edited by Marica Orrù and Igor Juricevic, will collect essays on (super)hero figures in twenty-first century US popular culture, with a specific focus on diversity, cross-genre texts, and transmedia representations.

CALL FOR PAPERS: Creativecritical Writing Now 
A Special Issue of TEXT Journal of Writing and Writing Courses 

This Special Issue aims to explore forms of, and approaches to, creativecritical writing: writing which performs scholarly and creative functions simultaneously. Such blended approaches are no longer new—indeed, they are tracking distinct paths and uses in various contexts inside academia and beyond. As such, this Special Issue will take stock of the current nexus between the creative and the critical, as well as speculate on future conceptions of hybrid creative writing/scholarship.   

Centering Blackness in Fan Studies **DEADLINE EXTENDED**

updated: 
Monday, January 16, 2023 - 10:02am
Transformative Works and Cultures
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, July 1, 2023

This special issue centers Blackness in fandom studies. Fandom studies has gestured toward race generally, and Blackness in particular, from its alleged white center while always keeping race at its margin. It has largely co-opted the language of race, difference, and diversity from the margins and recentered it around white geeks and white women. Indeed, fandom studies has done lots of things—except deal with its race problem. But as Toni Morrison (1975) asserts, that is the work of racism: it keeps those at the margins busy, trying to prove that they deserve a seat at the center table.

https://sciendo.com/journal/HSY

 

 

Hungarian Studies Yearbook is the latest intellectual venture of the Hungarian community from the Faculty of Letters at the Babeș-Bolyai University. The launch of this new platform comes after a long preparation and seems to be a natural and logical outcome both of the rich glocal scholarly traditions and the substantial impact this community had in Hungarian studies in the last decades.

Discussions around reproduction in the contemporary era have usually been bound up with debates around abortion rights and pro-life/pro-choice campaigns. From the UK’s proposals to create buffer zones at abortion clinics to prevent protests, to increased legalisation of abortion rights in several Latin American countries over recent years. Yet the conflict between continued restrictions in some countries and the relaxing of abortion laws in others continue to dominate the debate.

Call for Papers - Creature Redux: Considering the Pasts, Presents, and Futures of Chimera in Fiction and Popular Culture

Animals are the quotidian absolute Other. They are not inherently horrifying, dangerous, or invasive; nor do they have designs to usurp or subjugate humanity. In his lecture-turned-book The Animal That Therefore I Am, Derrida critiques the use of the word “animal” to describe an almost limitless array of creatures. “Animal” becomes a catch-all term for everything that is otherwise than human–and not the biological entity, but a specific, constructed hegemonic entity.

The immortal Fascination of the Monster. Monstrous Births and human Phenomena between Normality and Deviation.

Edited by Marina Mascherini and Bruno Accarino 

Today wonders and prodigies are on the agenda and populate literature, cinema, art, philosophy. A new curiosity about deviance and normality has certainly contributed, and still contributes, to the fascination ascribable to the extraordinary and the marginal. Once the ideals of order and rationality entered deeply into crisis, wonder and the marvelous have assumed an unimaginable importance, especially in intellectual circles.

Call for Papers: Small Screen Supers: Essays on Superhero Television 

As superhero films have proliferated, so too has superhero television. But as scholarship on superhero films has similarly proliferated, scholarship on superhero television has not. When superhero television is discussed by scholars, it is often as an offshoot of filmic franchises rather than as a phenomenon in its own right, with its own histories and contexts of production, its own approaches to adaptation, and its own dynamics of reception.
