Exploring Transnational Dimensions of Activism in Contemporary Book Culture

updated: 
Friday, November 19, 2021 - 10:44am
Studies in Book Culture/Memoires du Livre
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, December 1, 2021

“A is for Activist” is the title of a best-selling children’s board book, published in 2013 by Innosanto Nagara. This small book amplifies a large message: books can catalyze change. Publishing has both supported and hampered progressive political and social change, in a variety of international contexts. Activism in publishing is also transnational because national contexts and identities matter, but they exist within a transnational network with unequal power dynamics and “literary capital” (Casanova 2004). Building on ideas of “print activism” in the long twentieth century (Schreiber 2013), this special issue is dedicated to furthering our understanding of activism in the contemporary publishing industry – and in the research thereof.

This multidisciplinary publication brings together leading scholars and practitioners, to explore what pulse phonation is, what it can do, and how it can be framed as a cultural phenomenon. This volume will draw on a broad range of approaches, from psycholinguistics and vocal training to new materialism and queer theory. By fusing critical theoretical approaches with performance, the book will consider the processes of production and perception of pulse phonation, its uses, and meanings in contemporary culture, music, theatre, and performance art, and the place it occupies in a broader reflection on voice and sound production. The book will conclude with a series of interviews and short statements from users and listeners of creaky voices.

TRANSNATIONAL CALIFORNIA: Special Issue of Comparative American Studies

Deadline for abstracts: 1 December 2021

Deadline for essays: 1 May 2022

California has been transnational since the moment of colonial encounter from which it acquired its name – borrowed by Spanish explorers from a work of contemporary fiction and imposed upon a place (indeed, multiple places) long known to indigenous peoples by other words. Since that time, California has been defined by further transnational encounters, exchanges, and conflicts – as a site of cross-cultural communication where borders often characterise experience but equally often prove to be porous and mutable.

Taylor Swift, one of the best known musical artists of her generation, has left an indelible mark on popular culture and the collective consciousness. Although Swift is a perennial subject in the media, cast in both a positive and a negative light, few professional scholars have considered her work.

Tuesday, November 1, 2022

The concept of virtual worlds, while not new, has become a normalized part of 21st-century consciousness in the wake of the worldwide novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Once a realm reserved for playful escape, “dissolv[ing] the constraints of the anchored world so that we can lift anchor—not to drift aimlessly without point, but to explore anchorage in ever-new places” (Heim, 1993), virtual spaces have taken center stage in our everyday lives. Our meeting places, our workplaces, our places of learning, even the places where we unite to break bread have shifted from the physical realm to the virtual.

Call for Papers: Wisconsin English Journal Spring/Summer 2022 Issue (64.1)

College students with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and/or other learning disabilities are frequently allowed to complete examinations and assignments under separate rules or even in a separate, distraction-reduced setting. For example, although separate room test accommodations are believed to provide students with equal access to testing and thereby improve performance, little experimental research has examined their effects on actual test/essay scores. Even less research and scholarship focus on the location of testing and the impact of testing centers on students with various documented disabilities.

EXTENDED DEADLINE: Greek Mythology & Modern Culture: Reshaping Aesthetic Tastes

Thursday, November 11, 2021 - 1:12pm
Humanities
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 28, 2022

Dear Colleagues,

Much of the Western world has a rising problem with white nationalists. These white supremacists often co-opt fields like Classics, medievalism, and Norse mythology to support their racist ideologies—twisting these disciplines and repressing or ignoring evidence for the multicultural and multiracial realities of the ancient and medieval world. In terms of Classics, these distortions and appropriations have been documented by an emerging generation of scholars like Donna Zuckerberg, Dan-el Padilla Peralta, Curtis Dozier, Sarah Bond, and others. Ancient myth, literature, and symbols continue to pervade modern culture.

CALL FOR PAPERS: The CEA Critic, Special Issue: “Impediments to Student Success”

For the past year (and more), teachers at all levels, across disciplines, and, indeed, around the globe have been working overtime to ensure their students’ success in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. COVID presented a set of obstacles new to most of us. At the same time, COVID called our attention to obstacles that have interrupted our students’ paths since long before the pandemic. These obstacles, which have only become more obvious, are what we now wish to explore.
