The Politics of Food in the United States

updated: 
Thursday, April 29, 2021 - 2:59am
Alice Béja - Lille Institute of Political Science
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, June 30, 2021

Food in the United States is framed by myths and stereotypes. The myth of America as a land of plenty, embodied by the “first” Thanksgiving, is far from the reality the first settlers encountered, and creates an image of harmonious relations between Native Americans and New England colonists that belies the violence of colonization. Today, the image of the “fast food nation” masks the diversity of local cuisines and the rich history of food and foodways in the US.

Contemporary depictions of the long eighteenth century – whether drawn from historic sources or responding imaginatively to the era’s multifarious legacies – regularly captivate TV, film and theatre audiences and gamers alike. Increasingly, scholarly biographies provide the basis for big budget biopics, eighteenth-century narratives are adapted in new and experimental ways, objects from museum collections are replicated in cultures of fandom, and academics are invited onto sets as consultants.

Acta Ludologica

Acta Ludologica is inviting manuscripts for Vol. 4, No. 2, scheduled to be published in December 2021. The submissions deadline is June 30, 2021. The journal has no thematically oriented issues, so this CFP is general for manuscripts of any topics related to games and digital games.

Shakespeare in Indian Cinema, Muse India Issue 99, Sept-Oct 2021

updated: 
Thursday, April 22, 2021 - 11:34am
Muse India
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, April 21, 2021

Naseeruddin Shah, the actor, once claimed that “The roots may look lost but every big story in the Hindi film industry is from Shakespeare.” It might not be as simple as that but what Shah was pointing out was to the fact that there are many references to Shakespeare’s plays in Hindi film. Not just Hindi but Indian cinema reveals an adaptation and appropriation of the Bard of Avon. There are themes and devices so commonly found in Shakespeare’s plays in Indian films, such as twins separated at birth, cross dressing characters, star-crossed lovers, characters falling in love with messengers, the wise fool, the tamed Shrew and the mousetrap device.

Since ancient times, mirrors have been viewed as place where the dual worlds of soul and self merge. In ancient Mexico, polished obsidian mirrors were viewed as magical portals through which sorcerers traveled to reach the world of the gods. The fictitious mirror of 18th-century author, Oliver Goldsmith, revealed the inner workings of the mind rather than the surface.  In the 21st century, our reflections may obscure rather than uncover the truths we once searched for.  Through technology, we can recreate ourselves and the world around us. We see our altered, perfected reflections in our photos, on our web cams, and in advertising. Images may come to show not necessarily our realities, but visions of the world that we prefer.
