Gothic Nature Journal -- Film/TV Reviews

Sunday, November 3, 2019 - 7:08am
Gothic Nature Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 1, 2020

Gothic Nature is seeking TV/ film reviews for its next issue. The show or film reviewed should have a clear thematic link to ecohorror/ecoGothic, and the reviews should aim to be about 1,000 words in length (Harvard style and British spelling and punctuation conventions appreciated). We prefer reviews that focus on recent films or TV (within the last couple years), but we can be flexible about this, especially if you want to concentrate on a longer thematic through-line.Send inquiries and submissions to Sara L. Crosby at For further information about the journal, please visit:

Natural Philosophy, Literature, and the Embodied Imagination

Sunday, November 3, 2019 - 6:35am
SCSECS (St. Augustine, Florida - February 7-8, 2020)
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, December 9, 2019

From Tita Chico’s The Experimental Imagination (2019), Karen Bloom Gevirtz’s Women, the Novel, and Natural Philosophy (2014), and Dana Jalobeanu’s “Disciplining Experience” (2014), recent criticism has disrupted the notion of objectivity and detached or modest witnessing that is typically associated with the scientific method and that was put forth by seventeenth- and eighteenth-century natural philosophers, themselves. This panel seeks to explore the connections between seventeenth- and eighteenth-century science and literature by paying particular attention to the role embodiment—broadly construed as corporeality, experientiality, materiality, and/or subject-position—played in both.

Modern Language Studies, the journal of the Northeast Modern Language Association, is seeking reviews for the winter 2018-2019 issue.

I am especially interested in reviews of primary sources (including scholarly editions, contemporary literature, art, film, comic books, visual and popular culture), pedagogical works, and hypertext publications. However, reviews are no longer restricted to these categories.

Graduate students are welcome to contribute to the journal. Please submit your review electronically (as a Word attachment) to Randy Robertson, Reviews Editor of MLS, at
