Call for Articles – ‘Uncanny Perspectives: Texts, Images, Experiences’

 

IDEA – Interdisciplinary Discourses, Education and Analysis launches a call for articles for its new issue ‘Uncanny Perspectives: Texts, Images, Experiences’.

 The twentieth-century literature and culture tended to explore and to celebrate subjectivity. But this tendency did not mean the turn to the self, but beyond the self, to a dimension of fragmentation of experience, which questions, often in radical ways, our ordinary notions of identity and belonging.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 27, 2023

The Charles Olson Society will sponsor a session at the annual American Literature Association Conference, to be held in Boston, May 25-28. We are interested in abstracts that examine the influence of Charles Olson and/or other Black Mountain Poets on poetic practices and their developments up to the present. A variety of poets took up the innovative practices of figures like Charles Olson, Robert Creeley, Ed Dorn, Robert Duncan, John Wieners, and others associated with Black Mountain. How have the practices of this fundamentally important school of poetics been extended, transformed, and/or resisted by other poets?

Human-Plant Entanglement: Thinking with Plants in the Anthropocene

Wednesday, November 30, 2022

The human and plant relationship stretches back to the earliest of times, arguably 20,000 years ago when the prehistoric hunter-gatherers had not quite learned to domesticate the wild vegetal species that grew around them. Learning to domesticate the plants for their own use was a decisive moment that changed humans into an agricultural unit and left the promise of a quantum leap in human history. Indeed, for the last twenty millennia, humans and plants have co-evolved in such diverse but intimate ways that the history of one would be unthinkable without the history of the other.

Thursday, December 1, 2022

The editors of New Global Studies invite proposals for essays on the subject of ‘global futures’. Essays may cover any historical period. The central questions that this forum poses are:

How have globalization and globality affected historical periodization?

How do global re-conceptualizations of the past and present rely on assumptions and beliefs about the future?

How has the now-widespread use of the term ‘anthropocene’ affected a global consciousness?

How do the phenomena of de-globalization and re-globalization relate to global futures?

How do ‘unforeseen’ future events (particularly crises such as pandemics) employ global narratives?

What is the place of futurism in global studies?

Monday, October 31, 2022

Scholars have turned to genre as both method and topic in recent years. It has arisen as a heuristic for literary sociologists, feminist critics and race theorists. At the same time, critics observe a so-called “genre turn” in the contemporary novel, noting that generic forms have begun to transgress into the domain of literary fiction.

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 30, 2022

Catherine Malabou places her signature concept of “plasticity” within the material encounters between the Kantian, Hegelian, and Derridean threads of the continental philosophical tradition and emerging developments in neuroscience, epigenesis, and political organization. Her recent work has demonstrated the relevance of these encounters to fields as diverse as trauma studies, gender and queer studies, hermeneutics, anarchism, postcolonialism, artificial intelligence, evolution, anthropogenic climate change, sexuality, and affect studies, to name just a few.
