deadline for submissions:

Seeking submissions for a Critical Insights volume on Joseph Heller’s Catch-22 under contract with Salem/Grey House Publishers. Known as being a satirical, anti-war novel that initiated the eponymous phrase regarding paradoxical situations, Catch-22 was originally published in 1961. Catch-22 is appreciated for its dark humor, use of flashbacks, contorted chronology, countercultural sensibilities, and bizarre language structures. With current trends and political climate considered, we will revisit this classic text for a contemporary audience.

Close to 8 million people worldwide have contracted Covid-19. 1 million have died. In the United States alone, over 200,000 have succumbed to this deadly virus, and counting. With no end to the pandemic in sight, the "new normal" involves lockdowns, social distancing, face masks, fear, and political strife.

Newton and modern science, especially Mathematics and Physics, have completely changed the concepts of space and movement. Unlike other thinkers of that century, among whom Immanuel Kant stands for his remarkable thought, the new concepts of space and movement don’t seem to have influenced Diderot’s thinking effectively.

Stranger Forms: Translating the Unusual and Minor of Early Modernity (ACLA 2021)

Laura Francis and Sara Stamatiades - Cornell University
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, October 31, 2020

While canonical works like Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra’s Don Quixote have enjoyed rich histories of translation, minor texts rarely see as much activity. Even for famous authors, unusual forms may not see the light of day at all. Take Cervantes’ own entremeses, for example: a kind of theatrical interlude prevalent in Golden Age Spain, these short texts have attracted only a handful of translations compared to the Quixote’s hundreds. Carrying out the author’s own biting remark that he wrote dramatic pieces never to be dramatized, the lack of translation only reinforces the already problematic centering of canonical texts. Unavailability across languages ingrains the marginal status of other works and, with them, the marginal figures they represent.

Just as the Greeks on the plains of Troy faced the plague-arrows of Apollo, the modern world currently stands before unprecedented challenges.  The present pandemic has forced us to face issues of mortality more closely than has been the case in recent decades. At the same time, the situation in which the academic world now finds itself is breaking down barriers in many areas: between home and work environments; between academics, students and the wider community; between teachers and pupils; between traditional disciplines; and between different methods of teaching. In fact, there has been a feeling amongst many for quite some time that winds of change are blowing through the corridors of academia.

The exploration of prison is not new in literature and theatre. It is one in which convicts tell their stories from the inside. Here, the detained locate their experiences and conditions of prison. According to Arnold Erickson, prison has been a fertile setting for Artists, Musicians and Writers alike. Prisoners have produced hundreds of works that encompassed a wide range of literature books describing the prison experience. Modernist literature and theatre with its eclecticism saw the upsurge in the prison narrative. While Tennessee Williams’ Not about Nightingales establishes the prison genre, John Herbert’s Fortune and Men’s Eyes focuses on the harsh treatment of imprisoned homosexuals.

Although the ascendancy of Charles II on the English throne in 1660 was a restoration of Stuart hegemony, thereby giving the latter half of the seventeenth century its name, in reality the age heralded a new mode of living quite different from the one that existed in the pre-Civil War era. The culture and social mores that Charles II had imbibed during his exile at France were incorporated into English lifestyle with his coronation. The sudden release from Puritan stringency that had characterised life under Cromwell resulted in a general relaxation of morality that affected the dynamics of love, marriage, and human conduct.
