True Crime Index - Call for Book Reviews

True Crime Index
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 30, 2021

As an increasingly popular genre, true crime has enjoyed a fascinating surge in both academic and cultural interest over the last twenty years. As a relatively new academic discipline, scholars such as Mark Seltzer, David Schmidt, Tanya Horeck, and many others have published ground-breaking studies of the phenomenon of true crime and our various responses to it. However, the gap between popular culture’s interest in true crime and the burgeoning academic discipline remains wide, and True Crime Index invites reviews that seek to close this gap.

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 8, 2021

The thirteenth biennial Thomas R. Watson Conference in Rhetoric and Composition, which will be held virtually from April 21-23, 2021, will focus on policies and practices for planning and convening antiracist conferences. The exigence for our theme is global and local. This year’s uprisings for Black liberation have only reaffirmed the need for institutions of higher education to confront their roles in perpetuating a white supremacist system and, with the BIPOC students, faculty, and staff who have endured this violence and marginalization, to create just and equitable structures in its place.

Out of Bounds: An Exploration of Boundaries in CrisisOnline Conference: 14 & 15 July 2021Trinity Centre for Literary & Cultural Translation

From the exact lines on an architect’s blueprints to the demarcations on maps that shape the world today, boundaries have consequences. In concrete form they have separated societies, but they need not be material in order to exert power. The onset of crisis often sees the imposition of boundaries that are nebulous and ill-defined but surely no less potent than the menacing walls of segregation.

Writing center professionals are called not just to react, but to proactively transform their identities, missions, and services.

Body Memory and the UnconsciousOnline Conference and Workshop12-13 December 2020London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research

Does the body remember what the mind tries to forget? The psychoanalytic tradition grew out of Sigmund Freud's interest in hysteria, and the body's capacity to record painful events in the guise of psychosomatic symptoms. The painful narrative that becomes 'unspeakable' gains potency as it roams around the body, possessing various parts of us. Instead of a wandering womb (originally believed to be the cause of hysteria), it is the banished signifier that wanders, seeking expression.

The idea that studying the humanities generates more empathy and compassion is one that is now commonly understood. However, the humanities have been at a crossroads for these past ten odd years, since the rise of the digital humanities as “the next big thing” (Panapacker, 2009). Staunch advocates of the traditional humanities would look back and defend the discipline's ongoing relevance from its inception. Although there has been much-needed innovation in the humanities in recent years, partly in response to greater funding and public fervor for so-called “STEM” fields, it has not been without controversy.
