Over the past two decades, several institutions have emerged that collect, preserve, and make available for study obsolete media-technological artifacts and apparatuses: the Media Archaeological Fundus at Humboldt University, the online Museum of Obsolete Media, and the Media Archaeology Lab at CU Boulder are only a few of the most prominent examples.
This is a call for paper submissions to a special issue of the open-access, peer-reviewed journal, Literature. Here is the topic description:

It is common for studies in the Energy Humanities to identify the “late eighteenth century” as a backstory to the cultures, industries, and sciences of coal that emerged in the nineteenth century. This panel is interested in questioning that periodization with more complex genealogies or alternate imaginaries of energy throughout the eighteenth century.

Panevėžys County Gabrielė Petkevičaitė-Bitė Public Library together with its partners invites you to the XXII scientific conference "A Story of History Preservers: Retrospective, Present, and Future Possibilities of Research on the History of Memory Institutions", dedicated to the 100th anniversary of Panevėžys County Gabrielė Petkevičaitė-Bitė Public Library.
The history of any institution is a story that records how the institution emerged, developed and changed over time, what functions it performed and what place it occupied among other organizational structures of society. Without knowing the history of institutions, it is impossible to successfully create visions and strategies for their future activities.
Several examples of literature produced from the late Victorian age narrate great concerns about the future and the destiny of humanity, concerns that would be significantly exacerbated in the twentieth century by the First World War, soon followed by the Second, the unspeakable savagery of Nazis, the nuclear detonations in Hiroshima and Nagasaki and, last but not least, by the terror of a nuclear apocalypse during the long Cold War. Modernism appears thus as a cultural movement that, as Vincent Sherry maintains, “works most indicatively within an imaginative concept of time interrupted”, of a time that presents itself basically as provisional and utterly deprived of a future.

Call for Chapter Proposals:
Figures of Freedom in Anthropocene Fiction
We are soliciting chapters for a forthcoming book, Figures of Freedom in Anthropocene Fiction, a collection of essays examining how American literary, filmic, and televisual narratives have represented and reimagined themes of personal and political agency within the context of 21st-century aspirations and anxieties.
Continuing an ongoing philosophical conversation about the order of rank and value, media theorist and evolutionary biologist Donna Haraway states in A Cyborg Manifesto that the classifications of human, machine, and animal species blur if one examines them at the genetic or molecular level; the order and rank of human supremacy dissolves. In the late 19th century following the acceptance of Darwin’s theory of evolution, how were the fuzzy lines between humans, animals, and machines drawn and by whom? At what point do we, as humans, become transhuman—enhanced by technology?
Competing concepts of “medicine” and “healing” abound, with roots in our period; what might we think of as “alternative” medicine? Competing conceptions of medicine were proposed by Bruonians (John Brown’s binary of stimulant vs sedative) and Cullenians (followers of William Cullen), and yet another by Samuel Hahnemann (the law of similars, the law of the minimal dose). We might consider physiological interventions (surgeries, purgings) in contrast with more palliative approaches aimed at restoring “nature’s balance.” The origins of obstetrics (and its displacement of midwives), anatomical dissection and pathology (and their relation to criminality), and mesmerism are linked to famous male figures but also their critics.
‘Toxic’! Toxicity In-Between the Humanities and Natural Sciences // 18 Nov. 2022 (09.00-17.00 CET)
Toxicity and intoxication surround us: If anything, the resurgence of the terms in the late 2010s reminds us of this statement’s basic truth. Toxic masculinity, for example, has become a rallying cry against problematic gender norms, while Britney Spears’ 2003 mega-hit ‘Toxic’ has become a queer anthem conjuring the ‘poison paradise’. The future of our planet is decided at the dead banks of toxic rivers, with people living on toxic soil and drowning in an increasing mass of toxic waste. In the Western world, lifestyle-gurus promise ‘mental detox’ while an opioid crisis ravages the United States.
