Jonathan Bayliss created a fictional science called "dromenology" in his Gloucesterman series which was meant to study collective human endeavor. In contrast to the Romantic concept of individual action, this science describes activity conducted by humans as groups: work and play, religious ritual, and artistic endeavors such as dance or drama. He conceptualized such activity as the work that staves off entropy in the thermodynamic systems we call communities or societies.

For a prospective peer-reviewed cluster on Modernism/modernity’s Print Plus platform, we seek proposals for original essays that analyze the role of art and culture in building modern worlds in the aftermath of revolutions. Situated within the discourse of global modernisms, the transdisciplinary cluster probes whether there is something intrinsic to the post-revolutionary reconstructive moment that can be teased out through focused studies on contemporaneous constellations between the aesthetic and the political around the globe during the twentieth century. 

YOUNG SCHOLARS PANEL: BEING ONE AND MANY. FACES OF THE HUMAN IN THE 21ST CENTURY

Thursday, December 31, 2020

The emerging cyborgs, transhumans and posthumans call for an urgent reconsideration of humans as individuals and collectives. The identity of the human in the 21st century eludes the constraining boundaries of definitions underpinned by simplifying and simplified dichotomies. Affecting all the spheres of life, the discoveries and achievements of recent decades have challenged the bipolar categorizations of human and nonhuman, human and animal, or even human and machine, and thus opened the door to transdisciplinary considerations.

Cities and Fantasy: Urban Imaginary Across Cultures, 1830–1930 (Edited Volume)

updated:

Friday, January 15, 2021

The long nineteenth century witnessed the rapid expansion and modernization of cities around the globe. It is often also heralded, by critics working with Anglo-American literature, at least, as the starting point for studies of the fantastic. Nonetheless, despite the claims of critics such as Rosemary Jackson and Stephen Prickett that modern fantasy is, in part, a reaction to industrialization,[1] few projects have explored nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century fantasies’ engagement with the urban, and fewer still have attempted to address the intertwinement of fantasy and the city across cultures, a gap this volume seeks to fill.

Seeking submissions for a Critical Insights volume on Joseph Heller’s Catch-22 under contract with Salem/Grey House Publishers. Known as being a satirical, anti-war novel that initiated the eponymous phrase regarding paradoxical situations, Catch-22 was originally published in 1961. Catch-22 is appreciated for its dark humor, use of flashbacks, contorted chronology, countercultural sensibilities, and bizarre language structures. With current trends and political climate considered, we will revisit this classic text for a contemporary audience.

Issue 31 (2020): Art, Disease, and Expression

Science and art are the very nature of human attempts to understand and describe the world around us. As COVID-19 continues to dominate public discourse across the world - its ongoing effects trickling into every facet of our lives - the relationship between our health and how it affects the way we move through society has never felt more prescient. The 31st issue of FORUM aims to explore what has been identified as ‘sickness’ in literature and art through the years. How have the body and mind been treated by writers, artists, and cultural commentators - in sickness and in health.

Evelyn Scott Society -- SSAWW -- Deadline January 15, 2021

Evelyn Scott Society
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 15, 2021

The Evelyn Scott Society invites abstracts of 1-2 pages on the American writer Evelyn Scott (1893-1963). Papers may focus on any of her works (novels, short stories, memoir, poetry, young adult literature), and they may take any contemporary critical approach. We encourage papers that engage with the themes of the 2021 Society for the Study of American Women Writers Conference: Ecologies, Survival, Change. Scott’s work showed keen awareness of the “dynamic, interlocking systems that make up our world,” and often revealed stresses and fault lines where systems conflicted. She also frequently represented resilience in the face of change and hardship, but also probed characters and situations where change was experienced irrevocably as loss.
