CfP: Verge 8.1 A&Q – “Race, Racialization, and Antiracism: Reimagining the Study of Global Asias”
journals and collections of essays
This collection investigates how humanities teacher-scholars grapple with the opportunities and challenges of leadership roles, as well as connect them with their teaching and research endeavors. It offers the opportunity for a sustained and serious conversation about the multiple professional roles many humanities specialists play. It provides strategies for professional growth, sustenance, and satisfaction, while also meaningfully considering the relationship between our disciplinary areas of study, our academic training, and the lives we inhabit and aspire to. We seek research-inflected essays that address various types of institutions and leadership roles and that speak to lived experience in these multiple roles.
Call for Papers. Special Issue
Strangers and Trespassers in Contemporary Women’s Crime Fiction (2000-2020)
Papers on Language and Literature (Southern Illinois University Edwardsville)
Guest editors: Carla Rodríguez González and Esther Álvarez López
(Universidad de Oviedo)
For a collection under contract with Lexington Books, we seek submissions that address both historical and theoretical perspectives of “Hallyu” that specifically intersect with issues regarding gender, sexuality, and stereotype. We anticipate that the edited volume will be cross-disciplinary and bring insights from international scholars. We welcome papers that address new research and cultural products that are relevant and current. Space for visuals is limited so non-textual elements should be included sparingly. Abstracts are due August 1, 2020 and acceptances will go out August 20.
Completed essays are due in Microsoft Word by December 1, 2020 and should be around 10,000 words in English.
The Journal of Finnish Studies is now inviting manuscript submissions for a special issue on working-class literature. While we are specifically inviting revisions of the papers presented in the literature panels during FinnFest USA 2019 in Detroit, Michigan, this call is open to any work that focuses on academic research on Finnish-American working-class literature, or working-class literature of the Finnish diaspora anywhere in the world (including, but not limited to, Sweden and Australia). The submissions are due to email@example.com by January 31, 2021.
The Journal of Finnish Studies is a peer-reviewed research journal, ranked as JUFO-2 in Finland.
