Ariel 50th Anniversary Special Issue

updated: 
Thursday, May 3, 2018 - 4:26pm
Ariel: a Review of International English Literature
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, August 1, 2018

Ariel: a Review of International English Literature seeks proposals for publication in its 50th Anniversary Special Issue, slated for publication in 2020. This special issue will unpack and explore the tensions and interrelationships between postcolonial studies and Indigenous studies. When Bill Ashcroft, Gareth Griffiths, and Helen Tiffin published The Empire Writes Back (1989), the ensuing recognition of Canada and the United States as products of imperialism and colonization necessarily provoked questions about the people who preceded settlers. Indigenous literary studies became recognized as a necessary missing piece of those conversations.

Eid Mohamed and Barkuzar Dubbati (Guest Editors) / Arab Studies Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, May 1, 2018

This special issue focuses on the rise of graphic arts, Comics and Memes in the Arab world as a means of expression, representation, and political resistance against ideological hegemony. The aim of this Special Issue is to explore Graphic arts, Comics and Memes, and their uses and functions in a changing Arab world. We are interested in scholarly works that examine the intersectionality of the literary and artistic production created before, during, and after the Arab uprisings and the significance of the development of visual means of production of these works especially in relation to online communication. The uprisings that began in Tunisia in December 2010 popularized the use of non-traditional and independent media for publishing.

Reconciliation through Cross-Cultural Collaboration

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, May 1, 2018

Following milestone moments in Canadian history, namely the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, it has become imperative that all members of the nation should be implicated in processes of conciliation and reconciliation. This turn must include immigrants, migrants, and refugees who diaspored to Canada through colonial networks of their own, and whose presence has been largely overlooked in the “difficult binary” constructed between colonizer and the colonized in both historical and emergent discourses on decolonization. How might these postcolonial subjects enter into artistic or curatorial collaboration with Indigenous peoples of Canada that both acknowledge cultural diversity and their shared colonial beginnings?

Emmanuel Levinas writes extensively about the temptations of knowledge and the seductions of intelligibility and intentional consciousness as they enable a fascination for ontology, power, and war. For nearly 13 years, the North American Levinas Society has worked to preserve and focus this critique through social apertures that privilege questions of historical violence, transgenerational suffering, memory and repair.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 4, 2018

The contemporary world is undergoing a period of accelerated change which can be attributed to a number of different developments: technological advances, the ubiquity of social media and smartphones, the acceleration of global warming and the resultant environmental disasters, and major political upheavals such as Brexit and the growth of white nationalist movements across the globe. These and other changes create constantly shifting and unstable contemporary environments. In this climate of economic, political and environmental uncertainty, it is important to address the impact on and outcomes of these and other major changes in our contemporary world.
