Female Narratives of Protest: Literary and Cultural Representations from South Asia

updated: 
Friday, October 23, 2020 - 1:31pm
Nabanita Sengupta
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 1, 2021

Contemporary regimes of protest in South Asia are informed and injuncted by its ever shifting geopolitical modalities. With the rise of globalisation, neoliberalism and multiculturalism, South Asian geopolitics comprise a quest for redefinition of biopower and subjectivity formations. As hegemonies of Western  dominance are toppled, South Asian geopolitics are evolving as a complex assemblage of biopolitics, citizenship ethics and human rights concerns. In this evolving engagement with global politics, South Asia is fast emerging as a contending power itself with competent human and capital resources. An important consequence of this is the appearance of newer axes of fault lines in terms of polity, economy, religion, culture, art, and gender.

Call for book chapters on Marguerite Henry's King of the Wind

updated: 
Saturday, October 17, 2020 - 11:10am
Northwestern State University
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, November 30, 2020

I invite chapter proposals on Marguerite Henry’s Newbery-winning novel King of the Wind for the first in a series of edited collections about Henry’s individual works, edited by Rachel L. Carazo (Northwestern State University).

All areas of study, with a common goal of representing the cultural, social, philosophical, and material significance of King of the Wind are invited to participate.

While writing my graduate thesis, “Conflicting Views of Culture and Power: The Arab World in Marguerite Henry’s King of the Wind”, Dawn Heinecken also published an article about the absence of scholarship on Henry’s works. These proposed collections therefore seek to increase the scholarship available about Marguerite Henry.

Contagions and Non-Human Animals: (Re)Viewing Disregarded Species in Real and Imagined Pandemics

The impact of COVID-19 and the threat that it poses to future human experiences has been well-documented in news reports during the past few months. However, now that non-human animals are possible carriers and becoming infected, their experiences, while often overlooked, are nevertheless integrated into the worldwide pandemic.

Thus, this collection seeks to balance essays about non-human animals during real-world pandemics, such as the COVID-19 one, with those of their experiences during literary or cinematic ones. The scope of this call for papers is broad and can include topics such as:

CALL FOR BOOK CHAPTERS on Chen Qing Ling/The Untamed

Thanks to an increasing range of streaming platforms, a greater general familiarity with adaptation-driven and transmedial storytelling, and faster rates of communication among invested viewers—among other factors! —audiences today have access to an increasingly transcultural range of popular culture content. The 2019 Chinese web series Chen Qing Ling (English translation: The Untamed) is one such example. While the show is not the first of its various genres or circumstances, it has generated and sustained a wide appeal that is worth exploring.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 15, 2021

      In recent decades, critical theory and scholarship have taken up the category of matter and the material in order to renew interrogations of categories such as the “self” and the “human.” But whereas mid-twentieth century scholarship’s Marxist-historicist turn focused on material circumstances of reading and its social and political effects, these more recent theoretical endeavors – loosely aggregated under the framework of “new materialism” – explore and expand the notion of matter itself: what, after all, is matter, and how does it affect society and its discursive practices? How does it have agency or force, and how does it relate to life, broadly understood?

updated: 
Friday, October 16, 2020 - 10:54am
Vinicio Busacchi (University of Cagliari, Italy)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, December 31, 2020

I am pulling together an Edited Collection called The Metamorphoses of Historical Past: Memory, Representation and Facts and I would like to invite you to consider submitting one or more chapters.
The abstract/call for the Collection is here:
Historical facts are not objects. The ‘historical-real’ is constitutively representational because it is a process. The question of what is a given truth in history becomes the dilemma of creating a representative reconstruction of the process of (past) events that are close to the ‘real’ events as they are given in that specific time.
