Global Futures

New Global Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, December 1, 2022

The editors of New Global Studies invite proposals for essays on the subject of ‘global futures’. Essays may cover any historical period. The central questions that this forum poses are:

How have globalization and globality affected historical periodization?

How do global re-conceptualizations of the past and present rely on assumptions and beliefs about the future?

How has the now-widespread use of the term ‘anthropocene’ affected a global consciousness?

How do the phenomena of de-globalization and re-globalization relate to global futures?

How do ‘unforeseen’ future events (particularly crises such as pandemics) employ global narratives?

What is the place of futurism in global studies?

In conceptualizing nationalism and “nation-ness,” Benedict Anderson considered not only their emergence and historical transformations but also “why […] they command such profound emotional legitimacy” (Anderson 2006, 4). Intrinsic to the widely accepted understanding of the nation as a politically powerful construct is its affective depth, which shapes the atmospheres, spaces, bodies, and relations of national life.

The goal of this seminar is to provide a forum in which to discuss how TV shows (reality shows, true crime shows, documentary broadcasts, docufictions, and web series) bridge the gap between factual knowledge and myths, and how it facilitates the transfer of ordinary knowledge into the implausible, especially in Iberia and Latin America. Entertainment business and journalism intertwine to engage an audience oriented to the consumption of serialized narratives.

Monday, October 31, 2022

In recent decades, human rights have risen to prominence as a “dominant discourse for addressing issues of social justice” (Swanson Goldberg and Schultheis Moore 2012, 4). Scholars have demonstrated (and interrogated) the role that literature has played in human rights’ ascension–from the novel’s progressive expansion of the category of the “human” (Hunt 2007), to the widespread (albeit compromised) liberal belief that conveying narratives of suffering to concerned publics can promote justice (Schaffer and Smith 2004), to the evidence that “human rights bestsellers” shore up American militarism and neoliberal imperialism (Anker 2012).
