Special Issue on Black Australian author Mudrooroo

updated:

Australian Studies Journal / Zeitschrift für Australienstudien
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 16, 2022

The editors of the Australian Studies Journal are inviting contributions to a Special Issue on Black Australian author Mudrooroo (1938–2019), to be published October 2024. It will be guest-edited by Gerhard Fischer, UNSW Sydney.

Nearly 30 years after Mudrooroo's publicly rejected claim to Indigenous ancestry, and five years after the author's death in Brisbane (20 January 2019) following a decade of exile in India and Nepal, the proposed Special Issue will provide a first opportunity to re-appraise the complete oeuvre of one of Australia's most prolific, innovative and internationally renowned writers.

Baltic Horror (Edited Collection)

Editor: Fernando Gabriel Pagnoni Berns. Universidad de Buenos Aires (Argentina)

Horror cinema and nationhood are inextricably linked together. As Robin Wood stated in his now classic essay “American Nightmare”, the horror film is the nightmarish meeting of director and audiences, both acknowledging that the film is the enactment of national repressed fears and anxieties. Wood’s thesis has been applied to other geographies, including Latin-America, Asia or part of Europa. Regarding the latter, Italy, Spain or UK have been object of different studies, essays and monographies. Yet, there are European geographies still lacking critical attention

2023 marks the 400th anniversary of Mr. William Shakespeare's Comedies, Histories, & Tragedies, known as the First Folio, published in 1623. It included 36 plays, some of which had not been published before. On the website of The Folger Shakespeare Library readers are invited to “learn more about Shakespeare’s language, life, and the world he knew,” suggesting that we might be able to unlock, or at least better understand, Shakespeare’s works by studying what he and his contemporaries not only read but also saw or heard.

Tuesday, November 1, 2022

Writers, filmmakers, musicians, and other arts performers have taken a leading role in protesting governmental failure and corporate responsibility for environmental destruction and disaster across the Caribbean. In the 2000s, Caribbean writers, filmmakers, visual and other artists have spoken truth to power in Puerto Rico and Dominica after the tragedy of Hurricane Maria, in the struggle to preserve Jamaica’s Cockpit country from bauxite mining, and against extractive industries, tourism, and other environmentally destructive forms of development. In fact, writers and artists have been documenting, illuminating, and protesting environmental destruction since Caribbean cultural traditions emerged.

Tales of explorers and adventurers often blur the line between science and fiction, with chronicles of the exotic and the unknown becoming the stuff of legends and the building blocks of history. Explorer’s tales spin heroic stories of adventures that cross borders, shatter boundaries, develop new knowledge, and, in so doing, depict the causes and consequences of seeking dominion over people and places.

Call for book chapters | Conceptual Writing and Humor (Extended deadline)

updated: 
Monday, October 3, 2022 - 5:41am

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 30, 2022

Laughter is a physical manifestation or, as Jean-Luc Nancy wrote, it is “a body shaken by a thought that is not possible”. In a performance of conceptual poetry you hear as much laughter as in a stand-up comedy performance. However, in the academic world, conceptual writing has been treated mainly as a rational endeavor or a cerebral and intellectual exercise. Enthusiasts and critics alike have often read conceptualist works very seriously.

updated: 
Friday, September 30, 2022 - 4:05am
Anastasia Logotheti
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 30, 2022

This collection of critical essays explores how contemporary British authors engage with the theme of crisis in their fiction (as apparent in novels and short stories by Julian Barnes, A S Byatt, Graham Swift, Hilary Mantel, Zadie Smith, Pat Barker, Martin Amis, among others.)

‘Crisis’ can be investigated not only as informing any aspect of fiction involving sociopolitical and cultural systems, but also as a mode of challenge to established power structures and modes of representation across narrative traditions.

Submissions should focus on one or more of the aforementioned major contemporary British authors (though you are welcome to propose additional British authors who explore the theme of crisis).

A growing percentage of the American population is leaving the church and opting to let go of religious and spiritual frameworks to find social and personal meaning and even economic success, and this is true for African Americans who would have had no other option than to be “churched.” This development is noteworthy because much of what it means to be “black” in the United States, at least from a Western standpoint, is immersed in religious or spiritual frameworks that claim that people of African descent are inherently religious or spiritual. To be sure, it is often assumed that being religious is synonymous (ontologically) with being black and African.
