CFP: The Global South (Journal): “Toxic Ecologies of the Global South”—Deadline December 31st, 2023

Shouldn’t the World Bank be encouraging more migration of the dirty industries to the LDCs (less developed countries)? … I think the economic logic behind dumping a load of toxic waste in the lowest wage country is impeccable and we should face up to that… I’ve always thought that under-populated countries in Africa are vastly under-polluted. (Lawrence Summers, chief economic advisor to the IMF, 1991).

Comics and Life: Illustration, Intersections, and Insights

Higher education and research in humanities and social sciences have a rich history of addressing complex societal issues. But today, with technological advancements and globalization, academia is changing rapidly. Interdisciplinary research is the way forward, promoting innovation and preparing scholars for the complexities of our modern world. The emerging field of comics studies exemplifies this approach by exploring diverse subjects through a unique lens. This evolution in academia reflects our need to adapt and find creative solutions to the multifaceted challenges we face.

Postcolonial studies as a way of reclaiming history from the perspective of the colonised continues to uncover the myriad fraught legacies of colonialism. The emergence of newer interdisciplinary areas of inquiry, such as climate change, has further revealed tangled legacies of colonialism that continue to persist. The burgeoning field of postcolonial print culture studies, in turn, has been bringing to the fore a fascinating terrain of production, circulation and consumption of print in colonial contexts that is particularly enriching our knowledge of anticolonial resistance in various ways.  This conference aims to bring together academic work in some of the newer sub-fields of postcolonial inquiry with attention to continuities.

Caribbean Without Borders 2024: 10th Graduate Conference
deadline for submissions:

The Caribbean region is a vibrant and culturally diverse space where languages, literatures, and identities have long intertwined. In the digital age, these intersections are increasingly complex, opening up exciting avenues for interdisciplinary exploration. This call for papers invites graduate students to examine how digital technologies are reshaping Caribbean languages and literatures, while also influencing the construction of identities in multifaceted ways.

Suggested topics include but are not limited to:

Deadline for submissions:

January 15, 2024

Note on Updated Proposal:

We currently have most of the selections made, and essays in process, for a volume on re-considering Modernism with regard to British & world literature. We are, however, still looking for a small handful of high-quality proposals to fill out a few remaining chapters in the project. Our initial call was so successful that we decided to create two collections. The first one, on American Modernism, is currently under review by an academic publisher.

[UPDATED: Deadline Extended] CFP for an Edited Collection on the Contemporary Global Novel

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, November 20, 2023

We are seeking proposals for contributions to an edited collection of essays, titled Unruly Fictions: Geographies of Genre in the Contemporary Global Novel, focused on how the contemporary global novel expands the generic boundaries of fiction. This collection returns to a question that is at this point familiar terrain within literary studies: what is a novel? Our goal in this collection is to approach this question through scholarly essays that span a broad geographic scope and rethink the idea of “global” within and beyond established binaries: global norths and souths, easts and wests, colonial centers and peripheries, travelers and travelees.

DEADLINE EXTENDED: Re-Reading British and Irish Landscapes in the 21st Century: Nature, Networks, Identities

University of Mannheim
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, November 20, 2023

International Workshop / University of Mannheim, 14-15 June 2024

This conference takes its cue from the fact that various topical tendencies and events have refuelled interest in landscapes and the countryside in recent years, be it the climate crisis, the crisis of national identity in the context of the Brexit debate or reconsiderations of Britain’s colonial past. It aims at exploring the multi-layered interest in British and Irish landscapes in the 21st century, as writers and researchers alike critically engage with the ideologically charged notion of the countryside by re-reading and reconfiguring popular tropes.

Breaking the Silence: Minority languages in contemporary music as reclamation, resistance and revitalisation

updated: 
Thursday, October 26, 2023 - 1:27pm
University of Waikato
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, February 1, 2024

We invite extended abstract proposals for chapters that explore the significance of songs sung in marginalised or minority languages within contemporary music genres (from indige-punk, metal, hardcore, hip hop, rap, pop and so on). For so many minority cultures, language signifies survival. Language presence in contemporary music often constitutes a conscious form of language activism, in terms of freedom of expression and/or a deliberate effort to revive language through increasing its presence, value and usage. As Huang (2022) notes, through modern music the perception of minority languages can be shifted “from traditional, inferior, and underprivileged to international, modern, and confident” (p. 44).
