CALL FOR PAPERS: Essays on Police and Policing in 21st Century Film and Television

The Black Lives Matter movement, the trial and conviction of Derek Chauvin,  calls to defund the police, the prominence in the media of killer police such as Joseph James DeAngelo are recent manifestations of intense and even unprecedented levels of media attention on policing at interlocking points of race, inequality, social justice and political agendas.  Equally, exciting cross-disciplinary engagement between fields of justice studies, criminology, cultural studies and popular culture are increasingly opening up.

The Millennial Novel (Edited Collection) - Deadline Approaching

updated: 
Wednesday, August 18, 2021 - 8:53am
Loïc Bourdeau and Christopher Lloyd
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

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.

The Journal of Gender, Ethnic, and Cross-Cultural Studies is an interdisciplinary journal with the primary goal to facilitate the examination of the intersection among gender, cultural, and ethnic studies. Published biannually, this journal seeks to invigorate discussions of the global mobilization of people, ideas, and capital, and the ways in which this circulation has influenced conceptions of gender, ethnicity/race, migration, and culture. In the very same way, the journal examines the gendered nature of cultures and cultural encounters across borders. It is committed to facilitating intersectional, interdisciplinary dialogue which results from the crossing of disciplinary boundaries.

A dark urban setting scattered with dots of light. Yellow gas flames shoot up against a glowing red horizon, creating an almost hellish feel. Flying cars pierce the atmosphere, revealing the orange smog haze that reappears in urban sequences throughout the movie. As the camera moves closer to futuristic, monumental buildings, cold white beams of light transition to interiors dominated by blue hues. Sequences in the Tyrell Corporation are marked by cool tones as opposed to Deckard’s warm-toned private spaces. How would we feel and think about a cult film like Blade Runner (1982) if cinematographic choices about color had been made differently?

Consent affects people of all genders, sexual orientations, and nationalities. Responding to recent campaigns such as #MeToo and #TimesUp, as well as the work of the 1752 Group, this edited collection brings together and develops the intersectional and interdisciplinary conversations that emerged during a 2019 conference on Consent hosted at Durham University. We are looking to broaden the scope of our collection, and invite papers which focus on historical formulations of consent, literary and cultural representations of consent, and potential pathways and dialogues for the future.

Anger in the Nineteenth Century: Critical Perspectives

updated:

Cambridge Scholars Publishing
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 15, 2021

From the Gothic beginnings of E.T.A. Hoffman’s Mademoiselle de Scudéri (1819-20), one could sense the heavy breathings of a darkness almost entirely manifested in Anger. When Olivier Brusson comes knocking at de Scudéri’s door, standing on the verge of being turned away by La Martinière, he responds in an axiomatic manner: “Remember, her anger will rest upon you for ever when she comes to know that it was you who cruelly drove away from her door the unfortunate wretch who came to beg for her help”. What Olivier communicates, albeit cryptically, is that the perpetuation of anger becomes a remote possibility in instinctive nescience, whereas Knowledge creates that anger which stands capable of generating fruitful results.

In 2017 historian Per Faxneld published the landmark study Satanic Feminism: Lucifer as the Liberator of Woman in Nineteenth-Century Culture. The book argues for the existence of a nineteenth-century counter-reading of Satan that constructed the Devil as a symbol of women's liberation, progressive values, and intellectual freedom. For nineteenth- and early twentieth-century suffragists, artists, and radical thinkers, Satan served as an empowering model of self-determination and nonconformity.

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, November 30, 2021

Modern Language Studies, the journal of the Northeast Modern Language Association, is seeking reviews for the winter 2021-2022 issue. In recent years, the temperature has risen around free speech debates, and books on censorship and free speech come out with such frequency that it is hard to keep abreast of the new scholarship. I am interested in receiving reviews and review essays on academic books published in the last several years that are in some way related to free speech. The books to be reviewed can center on any historical, geographical, or disciplinary context, and the reviews and review essays can be written from (almost) any theoretical perspective.
