CFP LANGUAGE AND TECHNOLOGY

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 31, 2021

The accelerated evolution of technologies greatly affects our social practices and transforms how we use, teach, and learn languages. 

The democratization of access to information and the facilitation of authorship destabilize social roles once anchored in stability, calling into question what it means to be a teacher, a learner or even a user of the language.

It is difficult to imagine a society where humor is completely absent. From ancient times to the present day, this phenomenon performs the most important functions: from psychological détente to reflection of the socio-cultural and political atmosphere in which this or that community resides. Since the XVIII century, it has also become an instrument of mass communication and political struggle, and becomes an integral part of the mass media.

Critical Essays about Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 31, 2021

Overview: In 2010, Cartoon Network debuted a new animated series called Adventure Time, and within just a few short years, the show had become both a pop culture phenomenon and a critical darling; perhaps this reception is best exemplified by the words of the George Foster Peabody Awards Board of Jurors, which praised the show for “subtly teach[ing] lessons about growing up, accepting responsibility, and becoming who you’re meant to be.” But despite this admiration, not many works of scholarship have looked at the show through a critical lens.

Wednesday, January 6, 2021

“Climate change,” as former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Mary Robinson so astutely notes, “requires a feminist solution.” Global heating is causing rising sea levels, extreme weather events, and the circulation of new pathogens. It impacts economically, socially, and politically marginalized people and communities most severely. Women and children, the majority of the world’s poor, are already disproportionately burdened by its effects. In the Global North, the climate breakdown compounds the environmental racism that many communities of color already experience.

Imagining the 1980s: Representations of the Reagan Decade in Popular Culture - update

updated: 
Wednesday, October 28, 2020 - 12:05pm
McFarland Publishers
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, December 1, 2020

Popular culture scholars often refer to a 40-year cycle of nostalgia, and so it is not surprising that there has been a recent wave of movies and television shows set in the 1980s.  The Netflix series Stranger Things, the film IT: Chapter One, the interactive film Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, and the ninth season of American Horror Story, titled “1984,” all provide prominent examples of recent texts that have used the semantic texture of the 1980s as a dramatic setting.  These examples of ’80s horror suggest a contemporary apprehension of an undercurrent of demonic violence that undergirds the glittering fads, suburban affluence, and Reaganite yuppieism associated with the 1980s, even as they suggest parallels between Re

Female Narratives of Protest: Literary and Cultural Representations from South Asia

updated: 
Friday, October 23, 2020 - 1:31pm
Nabanita Sengupta
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 1, 2021

Contemporary regimes of protest in South Asia are informed and injuncted by its ever shifting geopolitical modalities. With the rise of globalisation, neoliberalism and multiculturalism, South Asian geopolitics comprise a quest for redefinition of biopower and subjectivity formations. As hegemonies of Western  dominance are toppled, South Asian geopolitics are evolving as a complex assemblage of biopolitics, citizenship ethics and human rights concerns. In this evolving engagement with global politics, South Asia is fast emerging as a contending power itself with competent human and capital resources. An important consequence of this is the appearance of newer axes of fault lines in terms of polity, economy, religion, culture, art, and gender.

Hello, everyone. I'm editing a series with Rowman & Littlefield/Lexington on a line of academic books critically analyzing elements of Jewish science fiction and fantasy (that's the series title). As such, I’d love some authors with concepts to write about.

At this stage, a paragraph-long proposal emailed to valerie@calithwain.com with a subject of JEWISH SPEC-FIC would be great. Here are some examples:

 

The Secret Jewish Roots of Star Wars (or some other top franchise)

Batwoman to Felicity: Jewish Characters in the Arrowverse

Rewriting the Narrative: Jewish Fairytale Novels
