From the Kennedy assassination to the moon landing hoax and QAnon, the United States have witnessed myriad conspiracy theories throughout their history. While the US is, of course, not alone in its love for conspiracies, conspiratorial rhetoric and conspiracy theories have been a fixture of US culture and politics for over two centuries. But even to this day, conspiracy theories are evoked both seriously and humorously from the political realm to popular culture, shaping public discourse and challenging established narratives.

This call for papers aims at bringing efforts geared towards the study of a much-neglected field of translation which is self-translation. Self-translation may look transparent and easy in terms of definition: an author or a writer translates his work into another language. This of course involves a bilingual attempt: an author writes a text in Arabic and then translates it into English or any other language. What are the problematics involved in this attempt is the main theme of this call for paper which will gather contributions in a publishable special issue once the reviews are completed.

The global and digital connectivity of recent years has transformed creative writing infrastructure and practice around the world. Recent decades have seen a number of critical and popular publications exploring the history and practice of creative writing, from Marc McGurl’s “The Program Era: Postwar Fiction and the Rise of Creative Writing” (2011) to Lisa Jaillant’s Literary Rebels: A History of Creative Writing in Anglo-American Universities (2022). Yet, as these titles suggest, the critical focus has been on US and UK courses.

‘EcoGothic from postcolonial societies has long pointed towards the need to reconceptualise the relation between humans and their environment as central to the project of decolonisation.’
—Kerstin Oloff, 2012
In the winter of 2022, with the launch of ChatGPT and the pursuit of advancing Large Language Models, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning quickly appeared in the mainstream of the social, scientific, and artistic debate. While the use of AI in social and scientific development is widely accepted and advanced in art and creative work, the presence of AI is not so obvious and undisputed. Many artists reach for AI as a tool enabling them to accomplish their artistic intentions. At the same time, AI is not original and has already raised plagiarism and copyright problems within the context of the arts, including visual art.
Chapter proposals are invited for a volume on contemporary memory and literary studies edited by Dr. D. Sudha Rani ( VNRVJIET ), Dr. Rachel Irdaya Raj ( VNRVJIET ), Dr.Shashibhusan Nayak (GP Nayagarh).

To mark the fortieth anniversary of William Gibson’s Neuromancer, in 2024 Foundation will be publishing a special summer issue devoted to the legacy of cyberpunk in the twenty-first century. Cyberpunk culture is conspicuously everywhere – from books and films to videogames, pop videos, TV shows, fashion, advertising, and the visual arts. If cyberpunk was once ‘cutting-edge’, what future does it have when AIs and virtual/augmented realities are increasingly part of everyday life? When global corporations such as Facebook are encouraging its customers to inhabit ‘the Metaverse’, what function does cyberpunk have?
Television has long been a space for comfort. Often, we watch television in the most intimate surroundings with our closest family members. Additionally, viewers are often encouraged to develop relationships with characters or situations over multiple serialized seasons. With the advent of Peak (or Prestige) TV over the past twenty years, our relationships to characters and situations have grown more complicated as both dramas and comedies have placed viewers in uncomfortable situations with unlikeable characters. However, recent works on television have played with the relationship between irony and sincerity in determining how “nice” we want our television.

SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS
Note: This call for papers was first made in October 2021. Since then, Instagram accounts such as Recognize Our Pride (@recognizeourpride) and Out Greek Fest (@outgreekfest) have gained popularity and have made more visible queer Divine Nine Greek Organization members. With hope, such visibility (and normalizing) will encourage more folks to answer this call and to share their stories thus holding the Divine Nine Greek Organizations accountable to their social justice missions while archiving the social justice work of Black queer organizing folk.
