THE ZOO OF THE IMAGINARY

According to Michel de Certeau, in a technocratic society as our own, religion is caged in the ‘zoo of the imaginary’, together with other genre-creatures, such as science fiction, romance, or the ‘witchcraft of ethnology’, as he calls it. For the next issue of Passage, we want  to let these spiritual, imaginary animals out of the cage, and into the banal, crumbling, hyperconnected everyday reality we inhabit.

We’re seeking chapter-length contributions to an edited volume on politics and the Western. The working title for this project is A Fistful of Politics: The Western and Political Thought.

Anthologies, Zines, and Magazines: The Collaborative Avant-Garde (ACLA 2022)

Tuesday, October 5, 2021 - 3:45pm
ACLA 2022
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 31, 2021

The avant-garde has often been defined by its asserted antagonism towards existing norms, and, in turn, critiqued for its ultimate co-option or complicity in those norms. Building on this rich tradition of reflection on the significance and role of the avant-garde, this seminar is interested in shifting the focus to its collaborative dimensions: its networks and communities of production and consumption, including editors and publishers, distributors and readers, and literary networks and communities, alongside the more-studied figure of the individual artist/author. Robert Darnton has influentially referred to this as a “communications circuit”; Mark S.

Totality and Culture, a special issue of Qui Parle

Tuesday, October 5, 2021 - 3:41pm
Qui Parle: Critical Humanities and Social Sciences
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 1, 2022

Is theoretical resistance to totality still viable today, in this moment of totalizing crisis? How might we reclaim totality as a conceptual ground that can account for the relationship between experience, on the one hand, and the historical-material processes that shape cultural production, on the other? Almost a century after György Lukács reinstated the concept at the very center of Marx’s project, and some four decades since the publication of Fredric Jameson’s The Political Unconscious, we are compelled to ask: how might we think about cultural production, circulation, and consumption in relation with, rather than in opposition to, totality?

Girlhood Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 15, 2021

Girlhood Studies, as an academic discipline, is still growing. Since some educational institutions do include girls’ studies as part of a special curriculum, an academic program, a certificate course, a minor, or as part of Women’s Studies or Gender Studies, Girlhood Studies does have a presence in academia although at this stage rarely in an autonomous department. This interest in the pedagogies and practices of teaching Girlhood Studies is an important aspect of its growth as a field of study at university level, at school, and outside of formal academic settings.

CFP: Performance and Public Shakespeare

 

For a special issue being proposed to Shakespeare Bulletin, we seek essays on the topic of performance and public Shakespeare, with a focus on markets and social responsibility.

Of course, performance is public Shakespeare, but as a result may be under-theorized in the ways current scholarship on social justice, eco-justice, and anti-racist pedagogy, to name a few, are reimaging and re-interrogating Shakespeare’s outward meanings and possibilities. We hope to expand our understandings of performance as public Shakespeare. Questions contributors may think about include the following:

"W(h)ither the Christian Right?” Papers are invited for a Post45 Contemporaries cluster on the U.S. Christian Right and literature. Recent evidence suggests the evangelical share of the population may be decreasing, but its political power so far has not waned and it is geared for apocalyptic combat. Momentarily defeated but unbowed like their champion President Trump, conservative white Christians have not received much attention in literary studies.
