Call for Creative Submissions for Inaugural Issue [The Waggle]

Sunday, December 22, 2013 - 4:45pm
The Waggle magazine

The Waggle (thewaggle.ca) is a new online magazine of engaged writing and the arts. We are committed to publishing interesting writing, visual art, and multi-media art from northwestern Canada and the world beyond.

Our name, The Waggle, is taken from the dance performed by honey bees. The dance is central to their communication, culture, and survival. The waggle-dance is performed centrally, within the hive, but provides information about the world beyond, and sends the bees off in new directions, so that every member of the hive can contribute.

Honey bees are essential to our survival. They're also beautiful, intelligent, and productive.

[UPDATE] "Visual Culture in African American Periodicals," deadline Dec 30, 2014

Saturday, December 21, 2013 - 8:51pm
African American Expression in Print and Digital Culture, University of Wisconsin, Madison, September 19-21, 2014

African American periodicals such as the Indianapolis Freeman, Colored American, Crisis and The Black Panther emphasize the impact of images, as well as the printed word, in enabling black Americans' self-expression and empowerment. Such periodicals often have been the primary venues for showcasing and supporting the work of black visual artists, including Aaron Douglas, Black Panther illustrator Emory Douglas, and political cartoonist Garfield Haywood. This interdisciplinary panel seeks papers that address the production, history, and aesthetics of black periodical art in a range of forms: mastheads and stock images, cover art, comics, sketches, political cartoons, and other illustrations.

Post-9/11 Literature and Media (abstracts due January 31, 2014)

Saturday, December 21, 2013 - 5:21pm
Paul Petrovic

I seek proposed chapters for a collection of essays tackling emergent post-9/11 literature and media. An academic publisher has already expressed interest in this collection.

While several books already exist that cover post-9/11 literature, they typically camp out on the usual suspects (Don DeLillo's Falling Man, Jonathan Safran Foer, Oliver Stone, Paul Greengrass). In contrast, the primary aim of this collection is to broaden that coverage by gathering together articles on newer fiction and examining how these diverse texts complicate and expand upon the initial wave of post-9/11 media.

Bullying Research: Its History, Findings and Comparison to a Personal Narrative

Saturday, December 21, 2013 - 3:32am
John Sizemore Jr., Southern New Hampshire University

This research paper explores the current attitudes of teachers towards the bullying—or "peer victimization"—of children and compare with the attitudes teachers held thirty years ago. At that and prior times, the attitude was that peer victimization was considered a part of the childhood experience.

This author examines the previous attitude through research on the documentation of the period before the research conducted by Norwegian psychologist Dan Olweus, who began to study the phenomenon in Norwegian schoolchildren in the 1970's. This author will also provide a summary of Olweus' work, which led him to developthe Olweus Bullying Prevention Program (OBPP), which the author will explain.

Elena Stylianou & Theopisti Stylianou-Lambert / European University Cyprus & Cyprus University of Technology

This is an open call for submissions for an edited volume on the ways in which death is displayed in museums through photography. The editors seek submissions that investigate theoretically and/or through specific international case studies the complexities of displaying photographs of death in a museum context. Submissions are expected to contribute to our understanding of the changing role of photography in museums and of the museum's ethical, pedagogical and political responsibilities for addressing diverse audiences with the display of death through photography.
