Edited volume: Narratives of Gendered Abuse in Academia

The popularity of the Netflix Series The Chair seems to be tied to its hyperbolic depictions of faintly legitimate power struggles that circulate on contemporary college campuses. But in focusing on the slapstick character Bill Dobson (male, white, hopelessly romantic), the narrative offers a political feint that distracts from actual abuses of power in academic life, abuses that are often misogynistic. While the #MeToo movement as a cultural, feminist, and antiracist force has been slowly and steadily uncovering and altering landscapes of gendered harassment and abuse across our society, academia itself as an abusive culture has remained fairly immune to these critiques.

Algo-rhythms: Living in and out of sync with technology

Guest editor: Evelyn Wan

Deadline: 18 December 2021

Published: May/June 2022

 

In his One Year Performance 1980-1981 (Time Clock Piece), Tehching Hsieh imposes upon himself the task of clocking-in using punch-card technology every day, every hour, 24 hours a day, all through 365 days of the year. Forcing his corporeal self into the cold rigid regularity of mechanical clock time, he makes visible the rhythmic bind of the machine.

I am seeking chapter submissions for an interdisciplinary edited collection concerning medieval and early modern medicine (from 1300-1700). The book will be interdisciplinary in nature. I am also especially interested in feminist and queer perspectives. It will focus on the influence of the ‘empirical turn’ (the scientific revolution of the 16th and 17th centuries) in Western medicine. It will include topics on any aspect of medicine, including but not limited to animal medicine, medical recipes, treatments, education, and facilities. The audience will be academic in nature, and I will seek publication with academic presses.

Sandstorm is a peer reviewed arts and literature journal edited by students and faculty at the University of Texas Permian Basin. We publish the best poetry, fiction, art, and photography from around the world and West Texas. The editors look for work with a social consciousness, but as for that, we do not have any bias that leans toward the lyric or narrative impulse, or formal or open--either is acceptable so long as the writer displays a sense of the organic. We also respect the objective correlative, shunning any detached abstraction.

Cfp. Between XII.24 (November 2022), "Entering the Simulacra World: Aesthetic and Cultural Phenomenologies in Literature, Media, and the Arts"

updated: 
Friday, October 8, 2021 - 11:10am
Edited by Alessandra Ghezzani, Laura Giovannelli, Cristina Savettieri and Francesco Rossi
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 31, 2022

This issue of Between aims to investigate the phenomenology of simulacra and their range of functions (conceptual, cultural, literary, aesthetic, and in the media). What is meant here by “simulacrum” is any artificial creature that imitates or replicates the outward form and/or behaviour of living beings, especially human beings. When it comes to artefacts produced by technology – conceived in its broader sense as techne, and therefore also including magic and art – the simulacrum reveals itself as marked by operational autonomy and a variable degree of awareness.

Saturday, November 20, 2021

This special issue of Women’s Studies aims to bring together new and exciting scholarship on the work of Eileen Myles. From their early involvement with the St. Mark’s Poetry Project in New York City in the late 1970s, to their breakthrough success in 2015 with the Ecco/HarperCollins publication of I Must Be Living Twice: New and Selected Poems and republication of their 1994 book Chelsea Girls, Myles has operated at the intersection of multiple traditions: the New York School, queer and trans feminisms, autofiction, and performance.

updated: 
Thursday, October 7, 2021 - 3:33pm
Katherine Mansfield Society
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, December 12, 2021

This special issue of Tinakori seeks to explore representations of physical and emotional pain in Mansfield’s writings. In her seminal text The Body in Pain, Elaine Scarry suggests that pain defies language to become ‘unrepresentable’, an idea more recently challenged. How does Mansfield represent hurt and pain using the literary conventions of short story form (or verse) as a medium? How is this also communicated in her letters and journals?How do bystanders in Mansfield’s work or life respond to those who suffer in some way? Is pain a source of connection or separation?

The Art of Drag (Racing): Reading The Fast and the Furious

Despite its outsized popular impact – which spans 20 years, 9 films, a chart-topping song and several viral memes – The Fast Saga remains under-studied. This call for papers invites sustained inquiry into these films for a collection in Post45’s Contemporaries forum, seeking to understand the implications of this series in and on the cultural imagination, especially given the questions posed by its notable divergence from the action film genre.

English Literary Renaissance
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, August 1, 2022

English Literary Renaissance invites article submissions of 8000 to 12000 words on race in non-dramatic Sixteenth- and Seventeenth-Century literature in English. We especially encourage submissions that forgo analysis of canonical work by Shakespeare and Spenser, and instead showcase other literary texts and authors of the period, along with new archival materials. While we have plans for a special issue that focuses on Sixteenth-Century literature to be published in 2024, we hope to add more than a single issue’s worth of material to our publication pipeline. We welcome a range of theoretical and methodological approaches. The deadline for authors who wish to be considered for the 2024 special issue is 1 August 2022.
