Excursions 11.1 "(Re)Connect

updated:

Excursions Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 10, 2020

(Re)Connect. (Re-)Establish a bond.

To connect is an integral part of the human experience. We are social, connected, beings. The unparalleled events of 2020 have made this even more evident --- they have forced us to disconnect from life as we knew it and to (re)connect to history, nature, people, ourselves, and forgotten practices. This has weakened and strengthened our established bonds, while creating new ones. Ultimately, it revealed how dependent we are on our connections.

EDITED VOLUME RESPONDING TO RASHID KHALIDI'S IRON CAGE (2006), deadline 1 October

Geoffrey Sloan & Elizabeth Bishop
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, October 1, 2020

Care to join us in an edited volume? When Beacon Press published Rashid Khalildi's Iron Cage, an early review described it as "at heart a historical essay" (New York Times, 7 October 2006), suggesting that it was, "more ... analysis than an exercise in original research." 

The Senses & Interior Design

updated: 
Monday, August 24, 2020 - 4:05pm
Dr John Potvin
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 2, 2020

Apart from the recent exhibition and attending catalogue for the 2018 Cooper-Hewitt exhibition, Senses: Design Beyond Vision, which focused on countless objects, and Diana Fuss’ compelling The Sense of an Interior(2004) which explores the specific rooms of four giant literary figures from the nineteenth century, a sustained investigation of the complex relationships between the senses and interior design remains elusive. Yet, despite this absence countless are the examples and vantage points from which to explore a constellation of interior design practices, theories and uses that have taken the five senses (sight, touch, smell, taste and hearing) into consideration.

The Routledge Handbook of Refugee Narratives

updated: 
Friday, August 21, 2020 - 4:32pm
Vinh Nguyen and Evyn Lê Espiritu Gandhi
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

The Routledge Handbook of Refugee Narratives, currently under contract with Routledge, presents a transnational and interdisciplinary study of refugee narratives. In response to the oversaturation of sociological, governmental, and journalistic narratives about refugees, this anthology features academic essays that examine the narratives refugees tell to, for, and about themselves. Engaging a rich variety of genres—fiction, autobiography, prose, poetry, graphic novels, film, photography, performance, social media—the chapters will analyze how conditions of forced displacement and encounters with different asylum regimes shape, but do not circumscribe, the form and content of refugee cultural productions.

Immersive Stories. Virtual Reality, Post-Cinema and Storytelling

Edited by Simone Arcagni (Università degli Studi di Palermo) and Adriano D’Aloia (Università degli Studi della Campania “Luigi Vanvitelli”)

In recent years, virtual reality (VR) has emerged as a new frontier of innovation and experimentation within what is known as “immersive entertainment” — gaming, art, museum exhibitions, TV and cinema. The proliferation on the market of new headsets (from the expensive HTC VIVE and Oculus to the popular Google Cardbox), the spread of platforms, apps and also VR cinemas around the world, and the inclusion of VR productions in international film festivals (e.g. Sundance, Tribeca, Venice) are trends demonstrating that VR is no longer just a fascinating 1980s-inspired literary or cinematic subject (from Tron to the Matrix trilogy, to the recent Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One).

Coronavirus, the brutal murders of George Floyd and so many other innocent Black people, and the Black Lives Matters movement have indelibly marked how 2020 will be recorded in history.  All of these revolutionary social, medical, cultural and historical movements intersect with the body.  The Body Studies Journal specifically invites papers that focus on the events of 2020.

CFP: Chants, Dreams and Other Grammars of Love

Dear friends, artists, comrades and colleagues,

We invite you to contribute to a commemorative anthology celebrating the life and work of Professor Harry Oludare Garuba (1958-2020); poet, literary scholar, teacher, mentor, and beloved friend.

Harry Garuba has been described as “the magnetic force of lasting and legendary friendships” (Raji 2020), an ever-present power “in the conviviality of people that he [...] nurtured, comforted and added in his ever-expanding circle of inclusion” (Fuh 2020), “African intellectual and icon” (Kessi 2020), and “one of the world's finest and most innovative poets” (Omoyele 2020).

400 years ago, the Mayflower arrived on Patuxet land and established the settler colony of Plymouth. Just two years later, the Patuxet peoples were pronounced extinct. Despite or due to this settler violence, the Plymouth colony gave rise to the American tradition of “Thanksgiving” and the mythology of Europeans building a ‘City upon a Hill’ in America.

Call for Papers – Uncharted [EXTENDED DEADLINE]

updated: 
Monday, August 17, 2020 - 7:47am
Łukasz Muniowski
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, October 1, 2020

 

Abstracts are sought for a peer-reviewed collection of philosophical essays related to the Naughty Dog action-adventure video game series Uncharted (2007-2017). The essays should refer to the games that are considered the canon of the series: Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. As the production of the movie adaptation of the game has been once again put on hold, and it seems that Naughty Dog will not develop new entries in the series in the foreseeable future, a book of essays seems rather timely.

Unreliable Narrators

Humanities in Transition
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, September 1, 2020

Unreliable narrators are storytellers that the reader (or viewer) cannot trust. They most often occur in narratives that are written from a first-person point of view. Unreliable narrators deceive purposefully in some cases and unintentionally in others. As a result, the reader/viewer is left with the sense that something is “off.”

Eurasian Folk and Fairy Tales: Bridging Continents

updated: 
Thursday, August 6, 2020 - 10:12am
European Languages and Cultures Research Centre, Ege University
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 31, 2021

Emerging from oral literature, folk and fairy tales are embedded and entangled within the very confines of human consciousness and are continuously rewoven into the fabric of cultural memory. Often categorised as stories for children, these tales not only provide vital information into the psyche and disposition of the human mind, but also enable us to understand social and cultural interactions. The vast imagery, motifs, and archetypes these tales produce enable them to be constantly re-conceived, reinterpreted, and disseminated. Even though folk and fairy tales emerge from differing cultures with diverse traditions and customs, they seem to share similar formation mechanisms.
