“Immediacy, Causality, Plasticity: Catherine Malabou and the Future Undoing of Philosophy”. A special issue of Culture, Theory and Critique (2019) co-edited by Richard Iveson and Greg Hainge.

Wednesday, April 4, 2018 - 9:06am
Culture, Theory and Critique.
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, October 31, 2018

Catherine Malabou opens Before Tomorrow (2014) with a striking yet seemingly simple question: ‘Why has the question of time lost its status as the leading question of philosophy?’ At one time, once upon a time, time led the way to the meaning of being, so why has no one ‘taken up the problem by trying to develop afresh a decisive concept of temporality?’ And, more, why does no one even ask this question anymore?

What’s Missing in Shakespeare?

Shakespeare's plays are often complicated by what they lack. Key characters go missing from scenes or drop out of the action entirely; absent characters exert influence over those onstage; mislaid or immaterial objects are pivotal to the resolutions of plots; urgent questions are settled through silences; and plays are frequently haunted by untaken roads or abandoned plot threads. In addition, contemporary performances are shaped significantly by cuts to the script, with some scenes or characters rarely realized in performance, and some plays rarely performed at all.

A diachronic approach to Ian McEwan’s fiction : from sensationalism to ethical writing ”

We are specifically looking for chapters that examine the earlier part of his literary output – his stories in First Love, Last Rites and In Between the Sheets as well as his novels and novellas The Cement Garden, The Comfort of Strangers, The Innocent – and some of his more recent work: Saturday, On Chesil Beach and Solar.

Journal Submission - Call: great apes and personhood

Monday, April 2, 2018 - 12:36pm
ASEBL Journal, St. Francis College
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, August 1, 2018

Call for a paper that addresses and compares great ape intelligence and social behavior. Specifically, we’d be interested, in line with the aims and scope of the journal, for a paper that looks at, among great apes, what has been traditionally considered human-unique traits and characteristics like moral behavior. Therefore, emphasis could be placed, comparatively speaking even among the great apes, on the similarities and differences in helping, aggression, and intelligence among orangutans, gorillas, chimpanzees, and bonobos. In this regard, one could discuss recent findings in the context of great ape personhood. In turn, the paper could dovetail into a discussion about great apes in captivity, habitat loss, and animal rights.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Edited Collection

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 25, 2018

The CW’s show Crazy Ex-Girlfriend has attracted considerable critical acclaim, including creator and star Rachel Bloom’s Golden Globe for Best Actress and Emmy awards for choreography and editing. Because of its female creator, screenwriter, and directors, its hybrid form as a television musical comedy, and its blatant engagement with “sexist term[s]” and mental illness, the show is ripe for feminist media analysis. I seek proposals for papers for an edited collection on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.
