Call for Articles: Linguistic hybridity in literature

updated: 
Thursday, April 7, 2022 - 3:54pm
Marianna Deganutti
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 21, 2022

The last few decades have been characterised by a growing interest in literary multilingualism. Multiple studies have examined the way linguistic diversity manifests itself in literary works, for instance focusing on multilingual practices such as code-switching. However, fewer and often isolated studies (Jacquet 1972, Gauvin 2004, Montermini 2006, Bürger-Koftis, Schweiger and Vlasta 2010, Loison-Charles 2016, etc.) have focused on linguistic hybridization in literature, a process “whereby separate and disparate entities or processes generate another entity or process (the hybrid), which shares certain features with each of its sources” (Sanchez Stockhammer 2012).

Queer Studies in Media & Popular Culture, a refereed academic journal now in its seventh volume, is currently seeking manuscripts addressing how the construction of sexual/gender identity as conveyed in recent media and popular culture is changing.

Multidisciplinary Collection on Transraciality

updated: 
Thursday, April 7, 2022 - 3:51pm
Molly McKibbin & Rebecca Tuvel
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 30, 2022

Description:

In 2015, the case of Rachel Doležal sparked a heated debate about transraciality and helped to establish an academic examination of the subject.  The scholarly consideration of transraciality is in its formative stages and this edited collection is an effort to expand and develop the existing discussion.  The first of its kind, this volume will include interdisciplinary contributions from scholars who bring a wide range of perspectives and approaches to the subject.  We are interested in chapters that help us, as an academic community, better understand transraciality as a concept or practice.

CLASSIC HORROR - abstracts due April 25, 2022

2022 is the 90th anniversary of the numerous amazing classic horror films that were released in 1932, among them Freaks, Island of Lost Souls, The Most Dangerous Game, The Old Dark House, The Mummy, and White Zombie. To mark this anniversary, we are soliciting abstracts for a special 'journal' issue of the website Horror Homeroom on classic horror.  This special issue, which will come out in 2022, will certainly honor those films that have their anniversary this year, but we also want to broaden what classic horror looks like and are interested in essays that explore other national cinemas and lesser-known films.

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.

MLA Options for Teaching Series: Science Writing
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, June 15, 2022

As fans of the genre can attest, popular science writing belies the notion of “science” and “literature” as separate domains.  Bestselling science writers borrow freely from the techniques of fiction writers to craft compelling narratives, memorable examples, and evocative re-presentations of technical information.  Of course, scholars have long recognized the literariness of science writing: as pioneering work by Gillian Beer, George Levine, Devin Griffiths, Donna Haraway, and others attests, it is difficult to overestimate the historical traffic between science and literature.  Since the early modern era (if not earlier), writers and scientists have routinely traded metaphors, images, and conceptual frameworks.

Borders, Boundaries and Identities

updated: 
Tuesday, March 29, 2022 - 9:33am
Intersections: A Journal of Literary and Cultural Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, April 6, 2022

The marking of borders and boundaries aims at structuring and naming spaces – both geographical and symbolic – as distinguishable entities. This naming, however, is subject to the incessant erasure and redrawing of lines of demarcation and redefining of spaces and identities, the demolition and reorganization of power structures, and the repositioning of the centre and the margins. Despite attempts at disciplining territories, spaces and identities, transgressions of boundaries and borders are inevitable. And the passages created by differing boundaries constitute the most contested fields. Nomenclature, therefore, remains a problem without a closure.

NEW BOOK SERIES: Routledge Studies in Edward Albee and American Theatre

updated: 
Monday, March 28, 2022 - 6:19pm
Michael Y. Bennett, Series Editor, University of Wisconsin-Whitewater
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, March 31, 2025

The Routledge Studies in Edward Albee and American Theatre book series aims to examine mid-to-late 20th Century American theatre; its most influential and important playwright, Edward Albee; and his contemporaries. This series is equally dedicated to both dramatic literature and theatrical performance, thinking about the American theatre in its totality. This series wants to examine the milieu of American theatre during the course of Albee’s six-decade-long career. Additionally, Edward Albee was a great champion of supporting other playwrights; therefore, in keeping with the mission of the Edward Albee Society, this series is especially interested in books about playwrights that were influenced by Albee.

The editors of Philosophy of Photography invite contributions to a special issue: Violence!

 

Full call for papers here>>

https://www.intellectbooks.com/asset/65396/1/POP_CfP_2022.pdf

 

Photography’s ubiquity means that it touches all realms of life. Indeed, it has arguably taken on a new and fundamental characteristic as the way that things emerge in heavily technologized societies. Violence is undoubtedly a determining category of this mode of society. Is violence, then, photographic? If so, is this a contingent fact or a necessary condition?

updated: 
Wednesday, March 23, 2022 - 2:06pm
Lisa Hopkins / Sheffield Hallam University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

Sir John Falstaff enters the Shakespearean stage asking what time of day it is and leaves it at the turning of the tide.  This collection of essays is interested in ideas about temporal shifts in early modern drama. Topics could include (but are not limited to) changing seasons; the representation of individual seasons in plays; holidays and ritual markers of time; the ebb and flow of tides; measurement of time and perceptions of temporal change; day, night, dawn and dusk; understandings of different time zones; the ageing process; saints’ days, quarter days, anniversaries, and other calendrical markers; accession days; and whether there was any awareness at the time of what we would now call the Little Ice Age.

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, May 31, 2022

Peace and justice educators have long recognized the value of the arts in helping students identify, critique, and reimagine themes related to conflict, peace, and efforts toward social justice. Using various creative elements, literary, visual, and/or auditory arts can explore complexities of the human condition in ways that are often overlooked in fields associated with the social sciences. By exploring people’s lived experiences of conflict, artistic works can provoke us to reconsider questions of social justice and our standpoints in relation to others.
