Historians and archaeologists, heritage scholars and professionals routinely focus on the digital transduction and rendering of text and artefacts when discussing the digitization of the heritage sector. Repositories, databases, 3D artifacts, immersive environments, interactive maps, and computer games are but some of the ways in which the past is currently reproduced and conveyed. But the implications of this digital turn for those outside the academy have yet to be fully appreciated and analyzed. This volume aims to further this conversation.

“The Exorcist: Studies on Possession, Influence, and Society”
Deadline for abstract submissions: October 31, 2021
Guest Editors: Edmund P. Cueva (University of Houston-Downtown) and Nadia Scippacercola (Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II)
This edited collection aims to theorize and contextualize transnational manifestations of the “millennial novel,” a term that has been used often derogatively to describe contemporary fiction from a generation of writers living through unprecedented historical upheavals. The book will not debate the use of the term, but rather provide an initial theorization of its forms and primary concerns. Characterised, we might say, by rootlessness, anxiety, ennui, and a general detachment from the governing socioeconomic structures of neoliberal modern life, the millennial novel is a genre at once over-debated and under-examined.

Growing out of two panels on access in higher education at the 2021 Modern Language Association's annual convention, this special journal issue will focus on the fundamental issues of access that plague American higher education. We will send the special issue proposal to several journals that take a radical approach to pedagogy in higher education.
Annulet: A Journal of Poetics seeks submissions of literary criticism for our second issue.
Among its meanings, "annulet" means a little ring. As a literary journal, we are committed to bringing into closer quarters poetry, poetics-driven prose, and public-facing scholarship and criticism.

Postcolonial Interventions invites academic articles for the upcoming June 2021 issue of the Journal which will be an Open Issue.
While the COVID-19 pandemic has plunged the world into similar processes of distress, loss and anxiety, it has also exacerbated authoritarian inclinations in various nation-states, widened socio-economic disparities and hardened competing fundamentalisms. It is hoped that the prospective submissions will take into account these recent upheavals alongside the usual explorations of literary and cultural representations focusing on postcolonial concerns from various corners of the globe.
East Asian Film Remakes

As the editors of a proposed addition to Edinburgh University Press’ newly launched “Screen Serialities” series, we are seeking abstracts for chapters that explore East Asian film remakes.
In Passage : The International Journal of Writing and Mobility, the journal of the Department of English of the University of Boumerdes (Algeria), seeks essays in English or French for its fourth issue, to be released in December 2021. All the contributions should either be written in English or discuss questions that relate to the English-speaking world. They should fit within the broad scope of texts and mobility and their interconnectedness in the fields of literature, linguistics, and translation, among others. The subjects it seeks to investigate include but are not restricted to:
- Literary genres and movements
- Travel literature and intercultural contact.
Queer and trans people are overrepresented in the foster care system yet there are few initiatives to improve conditions for LGBTQ youth in care.
Global South: Incarceration and Resistance
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.
CFP: "Nevertheless, she persisted": Girls, Literature for Girls, and the Politics of Persistence
Special issue of Women’s Studies
In 2017, Mitch McConnell explained his silencing of Senator Elizabeth Warren by stating, "She had appeared to violate the rule. She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted."
The English theatre culture from the early Restoration to the early 18th century witnessed a marked shift towards increased commercialization and popularization of theatre. Gone were the post-1660 close association with the court, royalist productions, and prominently elite (well-off and upper-class) audiences. Instead, the experimentation with new genres, opening of new theatres, and a growing differentiation of the theatre programme into mainpieces, entr’acte entertainments and afterpieces revolutionized the established cultural hierarchies of the period.
Essence & Critique: Journal of Literature and Drama Studies invites submissions for the inaugural issue of the journal - a general issue on Literature and Drama Studies.
Essence & Critique: Journal of Literature and Drama Studies is an open access peer-reviewed academic journal that serves as a forum for multi- and interdisciplinary discussions across Literature and Drama Studies, providing academicians, scholars, professionals, and students with the opportunity to disseminate their research to a diverse audience of peers and professionals.
For over twenty years, Ricky Gervais has entertained audiences with a brand of comedy all his own. The groundbreaking sitcom The Office pioneered the mockumentary genre and has influenced countless programs. Subsequent projects have continued to propel comedy into new directions, forms, and platforms.
Hybrid Pedagogy Books is pleased to announce this call for contributors for a new reader which will explore critical instructional design, a humanizing and problem-posing digital design approach grounded in the critical pedagogy of Paulo Freire. The collection will seek to feature voices from all over academia—designers and technologists, and also faculty, staff, and students—with a specific focus on voices from BIPOC, LGBTQ+, disabled, neurodivergent and other marginalized communities.
Food, more than a material substance is also a cultural expression handed down from generations to generations. In most societies, the older people pass on their knowledge of food and what constitutes “healthy or good” food to their new members. In this sense, the idea of food also marks a society’s relation with the larger environment- human and biotic. But, food also defines what is “within” from what is “without,” so that culinary skills, inherited through years of practice could be transferred to those who make up the members of a legitimate community.
ABO announces "Concise Collections on Teaching Eighteenth-Century Women," a new series that seeks to promote the teaching of eighteenth-century women writers and artists who remain seriously underrepresented in university classrooms, beyond a small collection of now-canonical authors.
In ABO’s Pedagogies section, we seek to publish groupings of three to five short articles focused on a specific female author/artist/grouping in each of the next six issues. The issue on Charlotte Lennox (Spring 2022) has now selected six proposals and is closed to further submisisons.
We are putting together an edited collection on cultural productions by children, theorizing children as creators and exploring children’s cultural production as a crucial, albeit often understudied, area of children’s literature, media, and cultural studies. We have most of the contributors in place, but we are seeking 2 to 3 additional chapters to round out the collection--specifically chapters on performance, music, visual art, digital media, film, television, and/or handicrafts from any time period, with special attention to BIPOC children. Please note that we are seeking work on children, not teenagers.
Is drag separable from gender? A preponderance of self-described "drag things" (versus drag kings and queens) specializing in performances of non-human entities and appearing everywhere from stages in local gay bars to digital platforms like Instagram and YouTube would suggest so; however, when we speak of drag in academic literature, we hew closely to notions of drag as demonstrating gender performativity above all else. This collection therefore seeks to theorize a previously underrepresented form of drag performance that does not necessarily play with gender so much as it plays with humanness:We call this "posthuman drag."
