“Only the media techniques of the 19th century, that is, photography, gramophone and film, had saved the sensuous reality from the absolutism of the book – however, one could formulate more radically: before the absolutism of language”, – N. Bolz writes in the book "Das ABC der Medien". The proposed opposition between writing as an "informational" media (which was most interesting to McLuhan) and "sensory" media needs critical reflection. This is especially important in conditions when a person's immersion in the media space implies that not only the information brain memory should be involved, but also various performative practices of experience and memory of the body.

Call for contributions to volume on Myth and 21st cent. Environmentalism. Literary and Artistic Practices for Saving the Planet

Myth and the environment have shared a rich common cultural history travelling as far back as the old times of storytelling and legend (Love 2003; O’Brian and White 2017, Schama 1996). From native American oral narrative where animals, humans and other beings interact, to Genesis in the Bible or the Darwinian theory of evolution, we can trace a rich array of elements which qualify as myth in different cultures. All of them, almost constantly have effects on the environment. From animals to “supernatural events,” the liminality of myth exhibits transition and transformation.

Working Title of the Volume: Wings, Wonders, and Warriors: Dragons in Children’s Literature and Graphic Novels

As the popularity of mythical creatures in films and literature grows, there is one creature that remains prominent: the dragon. Dragons have become most visible recently in the cinematic versions of The Hobbit and in George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones Series). However, there are other films, such as Dragonslayer (1981), Reign of Fire (2002), Dragonheart (1996), and the How to Train Your Dragon series (2010-2019), and numerous adult and children’s literature series that feature dragons.

Searching for the Modern Girl: Flappers and Bright Young Things Around the World 1920s–40s

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, December 30, 2021

While the Bright Young Things of England and the flappers of the America remain fixed in cultural memory, their incarnations elsewhere around the world have all but disappeared from history.  Affiliation with a feminized Anglo-European metropole may have contributed to their invisibility in the colonial peripheries, constructed around paradigms of masculine nationhood or anxious to distinguish themselves from Anglo-European mass culture. Despite her iconic status in the interwar period, the stigma associated with this notorious female figure in her own time seems to have carried over into the academy, inhibiting serious critical analysis of her role and function as an image for modernity.
