Edited collection “The Politics of Othering”

updated: 
Tuesday, February 23, 2021 - 4:20pm
University of Gafsa
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, June 30, 2021

The concept of “Othering/ Otherisation” refers to the classification of individuals or groups as outsiders. This cognitive classification divides any sociocultural and political formation into potential two generally monolithic and mutually exclusive blocks: the in-group community versus the out-group community. The inclusion or exclusion of each block is contingent on different criteria like religion, ethnicity, culture, race, politics, class, etc. When these differences are used descriptively, they become somewhat acceptable and harmless. However, when they are normative, they are often couched in the discourses of superiority or inferiority, goodness or badness, civilized-ness or uncivilized-ness, etc.

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, April 20, 2021

Call for Papers (Spring Issue 2021) The image of Syria as a war-torn country has always dominated global news cycles. On one hand, news outlets discuss how the international powers serve their own economic and political interests by implementing the Middle East Grand Strategy revolving around ‘ Creative Chaos’ policies. In short, waging a proxy war on Syria’s political and economic system, destroying culture and infrastructure, affecting civilians, violating human rights principles under the pretext of democracy and protection of human rights, with the aim to reshape Middle East politics. In this context, such news cycles persistently distort President Assad's counterstrategy.

The global medieval and early modern world (broadly considered, c. 900-1750) underwent myriad profound changes, from devastating famines, plagues, and wars to an increased entanglement of the continents, economic transformations, and technological and scientific developments. These changes were often accompanied by calls for the reshaping of the institutions and structures – political, religious, intellectual, etc. – which undergirded societies’ approach to these challenges, encompassing such responses as resistance, resilience, and renewal.

                                                                        A Handbook of Indian Indie Cinema

Each year, a large number of Indian Indie films are released that suffer from lack of viewership even when it comes to their target audience, not to mention critical assessments: films that are regional, experimental in nature or have fresh, timely interventions. Many among these deserve recognition, not only from general audiences and moviegoers but also from film scholars and the academia. With the onset of streaming sites and OTT platforms, some of these have made it to the limelight, although a systematic handbook that discusses and features many of these films is currently, absent.

I am currently editing Graphic Novels and Comics as World Literature for Bloomsbury and unfortunately had an article on African comics drop out and am looking for a fairly quick replacement.  Feel free to send me an email with a short abstract by January 25.  The article due date is negotiable but would need to come before April 1.  The original description for the collection, which already includes articles on Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, Oceania and on movement between borders, is below. The article would need to focus on comics from and/or about Africa but the approach is certainly open. I am happy to answer any questions at jhodapp@northwestern.edu.
