Call For Submissions – Creative Collection - Fears and Phobias – Sunderland Creative Press (University of Sunderland)

 

Tip-tap on your window, a nightmare comes to taunt you. It starts slowly, softly, building intensity through the dead of night. A thunderbolt of fright strikes through you; you tremble under the covers alone in the dark with creatures of the night, the perpetrators of your restless, anxiety-ridden slumber. Are you brave enough to explore fear a little closer? If you are, then we want to hear about which monsters lurk in your closet, and even the ones that hide under your bed and inside your head.

Panel proposed at the 2023 ASLE + AESS Conference: “Reclaiming the Commons”

July 9-12, 2023 in Portland, Oregon

Environmental disasters along with lack of resources and global recession are increasingly rendering many parts of the globe inhabitable and forcing the displacement of billions of people. While large corporations and the global north – directly responsible for the climate crisis– refuse to take responsibility for the ecological breakdown, a narrative casting the blame on vulnerable and marginalized communities has been reemerging. In their attempt to “reclaim the commons” the far right has been reframing the climate crisis through the lens of race while calling for environmental cleansing.

The #MeToo has significantly impacted how we understand sexual harassment, rape, and gendered violence, especially in the US.  However, the movement was taken up only briefly by the media and entertainment industry in South Asia and the Diaspora.

Horror Homeroom
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 23, 2023

Horror literature’s resurgence in recent years has yielded huge results for the genre - not only a proliferation of new and diverse horror fictions but also an interest in reclaiming critically dismissed titles of the past. Whether disdained as pulpy trash or ignored for appealing to youth demographics, a large swathe of pre-2000s horror literature has frequently been deemed unworthy of critical analysis.
