Illinois Open Publishing Network (IOPN)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, July 31, 2021

Deadline Extension: Due to an extension of our funding timeline, we are making a significant extension of this CFP deadline, which will now be July 31, 2021 (moving back work on the proposed edition by a semester as well). We hope this gives people more time to develop a proposal than the original tight turnaround, especially after the semester is over and people can take a step back from what is an unusually disruptive year. We are happy to talk to people about possible proposals. Updated CFP text is below.

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, April 1, 2021

The Iowa Journal of Cultural Studies, a peer-reviewed academic journal edited by graduate students at the University of Iowa and dedicated to publishing cultural studies scholarship from both established and emerging scholars, is currently soliciting book reviews for our upcoming issue: Justice Framed. Reviewers must be post-comprehensive exam scholars, and reviews must not be previously published elsewhere. The deadline for reviews is April 1, 2021.

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, June 30, 2021

2020 marks the centennial celebration of the publication of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s first novel, This Side of Paradise. Because a centennial is also a time to look back in order to reevaluate, reassess and then speculate on the future, we invite scholars to explore and analyze not only the lasting significance of Fitzgerald's oeuvre, but also the many possible parallels and/or tensions between his work and that of other writers and artists. Essays that turn to new perspectives and expand upon connections between Fitzgerald’s work and other literary and artistic expressions are also especially welcome.

Topics may include (but are not limited) to:

Update on the 41st APEAA Conference at the University of Aveiro - 21-22 May 2021 

First of all we would like to thank everybody for their patience and understanding when the 41st APEAA Conference at the University of Aveiro had to be cancelled due to the pandemic!  

Given the ongoing uncertainty around the Covid pandemic, we have decided the best course of action is to hold the APEAA Conference entirely online, using Zoom. The new date is 21-22 May 2021, during Portuguese working hours. 

This is of course disappointing, since we will be unable to see our colleagues face to face to exchange views at greater length, but circumstances dictate this format.
