Transmotion is seeking submissions on the theme of Transgender, Two-Spirit and Nonbinary Indigenous Literature. In the past decade, an increasing number of transgender Indigenous writers have been published, especially in the settler state known as Canada, such as Gwen Benaway, Arielle Twist, and Smokii Sumac.

Detective fiction has historically been dominated by male individuals who represent a raced, classed, and gendered form of knowledge. From Sherlock Holmes to twentieth-century figures such as Hercule Poirot and Sam Spade, the iconic detective has traditionally been embodied by a white man, with characteristics that echo Anglo-European colonialist discourse: the detective deduces, discovers, pursues, and reveals; he is full of agency and reason, bringing meaning and order to darkness and mystery.

Travel is a vehicle for which to explore the condition of living, how our relationships to place shape us and our experiences, how our identities and political histories inform place, how power structures inform how we migrate (or don’t) and how that affects the places we pass through. --Bani Amor, “Getting Real About Decolonizing Travel Culture” (2017)

As the MOSF Journal of Science Fiction continues in our endeavor to highlight and generate discourse around diverse science fiction narratives, we’ve begun to look for ways of expanding our global readership. With that in mind, the Editorial Board has suggested a special issue on Middle Eastern Science Fiction for our winter issue, due for publication around November 2020. To do such an endeavor justice, we would like to release the project as our first dual-language issue, published in both English and in Arabic.

Relgion and the Marketplace
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 1, 2020

We are seeking one or two chapters to fill out our edited collection Religion and the Medieval and Early Modern Global Marketplace (already under contract with Routledge). Ideally the chapter(s) would provide a case study that addresses some intersection of economy (market, exchange) and religion (faith, sprituality) in medieval and/or early modern Africa. How did matters of faith enter the marketplace in a specific region of Africa? How did religion facilitate or provide resistance to the growing slave trade? How did religions adapt to changing markets?

Cfp: Articulating belonging: translingualism, belonging and the creation of South African social collectivities

updated: 
Monday, April 6, 2020 - 11:31am
University of Amsterdam/University of Gent
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 8, 2020

In the creation of nation-states during the 19th and 20th century, standardized and official languages were of key importance to develop feelings of belonging to social collectivities through the public sphere. However, contemporary global neoliberal conditions have put pressure on Romantic notions such as belonging, togetherness and culture, that used to be seen as the building blocks of national identity. Postcolonial and decolonial debates have, furthermore critiqued the presumed monolingual character of communities and nations (Yildiz 2012; Mignolo 2003) by pointing to their linguistic heterogeneity.

Re: Extended Deadline 24 April: Words, Music and Marginalisation, University of St Andrews, 1-3 September 2020

Dear colleagues,

Many thanks to those of you who have already sent abstracts through for our conference Words, Music and Marginalisation with the WMA Forum in St Andrews in September 2020.

We appreciate that everyone is operating in a state of uncertainty, and with many more personal, professional and family demands on their time than usual. It is impossible at this stage to predict what travel will look like in September, but we recognise that colleagues are not comfortable making arrangements for future travel until things become clearer.
