Margaret Atwood Studies invites submissions of articles that focus on ageism and aging in Atwood’s works or in the works of both Atwood and other authors, such as Doris Lessing, another prolific and influential woman writer who examines these themes. This special issue aims to explore the ways these writers present the passing of time in relation to life experiences and self-consciousness. Articles might discuss the works’ depictions of what it means to come of age, how age and the aging process change how we see ourselves, when and how one becomes old, ways that gender affects the aging process, and how age discrimination shapes societies and individuals.Submissions due 1 September 2016.

CFP // Games and Literary Theory Collection

We are soliciting proposals for a collection of essays at the intersection of game studies and literary theory.

This coming year will mark the fourth meeting of the International Conference Series on Games and Literary Theory at Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland. Having hosted the previous two meetings, we have witnessed a rich diversity of scholarship claiming this interdisciplinary field. Yet, we have also noted in the breadth of approaches a lack of a shared disciplinary history or critical archive.

Disclosing Class: Pedagogy and the Working Class

Researcher and social activist Jean Anyon, in her investigations of social class reproduction in education, suggests "there is a ‘hidden curriculum’ in school work that has profound implication for theory—and practice—in education” (“Social Class” 67). By making class unhidden in the curriculum, students no longer feel they must "hide" themselves, and allows faculty to foster more honest conversations and writing about such issues.

What does it mean to be working class? How do languages spoken, values held, and cultural representations vary given one’s class position? Though 62% of the country is working class (Zweig), the answers to these questions are left largely unclear and unspoken. Among others, these questions will be addressed via reflection and exploration from individuals from the working class, or who many call “working-class academics.”

This session will examine the emergence of invention/experiment with basic materials of expression, such as the word or image, in literature, other arts, and culture. In what ways does novel expression produce meaning, or reflect aesthetic or social change, or belong to broader changes of form or the development of new media? How does it involve cultural or other difference? What novelty is deliberately produced, what inadvertently or passively?

The Mise-en-scène editorial team is pleased to announce an open call for papers for the journal’s premiere issue. Debuting in the fall of 2016, Issue 1:1 will be a multimodal showcase for mise-en-scène scholarship that encompasses the latest research and theoretical concerns in film and media studies. Given the journal’s mandate to renew discourse around one of screen culture’s most ubiquitous yet indefinable terms, the submissions for this and all subsequent calls are to be mise-en-scène centric. Analysis of the image, frame or screen capture must play an essential role in each manuscript.
