Between Heaven and Ground: exploring new atmospheres

 

The atmosphere is an ever-present component of the Earth, and although airy and diffuse, gives rise to an endless multiplicity of realisations, affects and presences. The epistemological and ontological vagueness of the atmosphere belies the criticality of the atmosphere as central to conditions of being (both human and more-than-human), and as a material site for attention and attunement. As Lyall Watson writes in Heaven’s Breath, ‘the more we learn about our atmosphere, the more substantial it becomes… close to being a living tissue in its own right’ (1985: 146). 

 

Evil in/and Stephen King: Essay Volume

Friday, March 4, 2022

The concept of evil received much attention throughout the 20th century. Despite the industrial scale atrocities committed in Nazi Germany, Stalinist Russia, and Maoist China, alongside the genocides in Cambodia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Rwanda, as well as the explosion of serial killers like Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, and Andrei Chikatilo in the latter part of the 20th century, the first two decades of the 21st century have been largely unconcerned with rigorous discussion of such evil.

Chinese Fandoms

Chinese fandoms are a growing area of interest attracting attention from groups as diverse as academia, industry, and even government. Although the foci of these groups vary, at the core are questions related to the function, organization, interests, and activities of fan groups. As Chinese media and entertainment industries mature and transnational collaborations increase, content and celebrity figures both inside and outside the Chinese context are increasingly distributed, consumed, and implicated in the formation (or extension) of fan communities.

We are editing a Handbook of the Short Story in the World for Brill as part of the series Handbooks of Literary and Cultural Studies, and we are looking for chapters on some specific topics (see below). We are well aware that the chapters are broad in their scope. Some of these chapters should have a comparativist approach that covers several countries. For that reason, we are looking for potential contributors who have expertise in the field to write a synthetical approach to the topic while at the same time being analytical in the discussion of concrete short stories. Ideally a chapter should offer an overview of the topic, and then discuss three or four authors and/ or stories.

Elephant&Castle #28/2022
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 20, 2022

The theme of environmental crisis has been present in the public debate for several decades, and forcefully resurfaced in 2015 when the 2030 Agenda containing the goals of sustainable development was launched, including the preservation of all forms of life, the struggle against global warming and the production of clean and renewable energy. In the same year, the publication of the papal encyclical Laudato si’ on “integral ecology” and the conclusion of the Paris agreements on climate change also prompted debate on this theme. Throughout the years, environmental issues have progressively permeated the realm of scientific research as well.

CFP:Dark Academia: Definitions, Theories, and Prospects

updated: 
Tuesday, January 18, 2022 - 9:50am
Cody Jones-- NYU
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 1, 2022

We are seeking essays and papers for an edited collection which engages the concept of ‘dark academia.’ 

At the center of the dark academic sensibility lies a paradox: though dark academia enjoys the cosmetic trappings of the pursuit of higher knowledge, it is at its core a celebration of the university as a place of occultation and performativity. The dark academic’s taste for mystery, history, and a distinctly Anglophone, Romantico-Modernist canon – coupled with an equally distinct early 20th century sartorial and lifestyle model – runs inevitably into exclusivity, elitism, and reactionary nostalgia. Indeed, the case can be made that these very elements are in fact constitutive of dark academia, as such.

*Extended Deadline* Shakespeare's Odysseys

updated: 
Monday, January 17, 2022 - 2:33am
Shakespeare-Seminar 2022
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 28, 2022

In Episode 9 of James Joyce's Ulysses, “Scylla and Charybdis,” Stephen Dedalus develops a theory about the origins of Shakespeare’s works that is both original and controversial. It is in the National Library of Ireland that Dedalus, in a wild and winding conversation, develops his ‘Hamlet theory’. The episode stages the strong and sometimes comic appeal of a biographical approach to Shakespeare’s works and, at the same time, casts Dedalus – Joyce’s alter ego – variously as Hamlet, Hamlet’s father, Shakespeare, and as a modern-day Ulysses.
