“Speculative Visions” –​ ​Issue 27

For its twenty-seventh issue, ​InVisible Culture: An Electronic Journal for Vis​ual Culture invites scholarly articles and creative works that address the complex and multiple meanings of specul​ative visions.

The last decade has seen a rise in popularity among science fiction, fantasy, and horror. These

genres encourage the capacity to imagine post-human bodies, extraordinary worlds,

techno-utopias, and claustrophobic spaces of violence. In their reliance upon the imagination,

these speculative visions provide a space to consider contradictions and a carnivalesque

interaction between popular culture and critical theory.

FORUM Call for Papers, Issue 24: Taboo Taboo permeates all aspects of everyday life, acting as the boundary against which society polices human experience and experimentation. Frequently characterised as social or religious customs that proscribe particular ideas, practices, words or persons, taboos not only help define a set of shared rules for society, but also clarify the limitations of the accepted.  Kelly Hurley highlights the positive facets of taboo, suggesting that it is only through the enforcement of certain boundaries that humans might “continue to experience the world as an epistemologically stable site” (The Gothic Body 25).

This thematic double issue of Studies in the Humanities addresses globalization as a blossoming of inclusive systems of transnational capitalism, multicultural traffic, and networking technology, which has also generated symptoms of exclusion related to migration/refuge, precarious life, and various catastrophes that debunk the holistic universality of one rainbow global village. Political dialectics has turned into the absolute antagonism between the ‘soft’ ethical inclusion of differences in the whole and the ‘hard’ ethical backlash from its excluded remnants. Multiculturalism and terrorism, neoliberalism and fundamentalism, compassion and hate, human rights and bare life interlock like two sides of the same coin.

Young Perspectives to Legal Education in Universities

The law is in our lives since the 22nd century BC, when a Sumerian ruler Ur-Nammu created the first law code

which consisted of casuistic statements. Since then, every society happened to create their on laws in order to live in

ordonnance and security, which would bring justice to their lives. For Plato, justice is an asset establishing rational

order, with each part performing its appropriate role and not interfering with the proper functioning of other parts.

Hawthorne and the Environment: Ecocritical Perspectives

Wednesday, March 15, 2017

Through depictions of forests and seashores, animals and plants, the wild and the domestic, Hawthorne’s writings abound with explorations of the human relationship to the physical environment. Yet the moral and ethical significance of nature as physical, biological environment has often been overlooked in critical interpretations of “Nature” as symbol in Hawthornian romance.

Transformations: Tracing Forces of Change in the Medieval and Early Modern Period

Duke-UNC Medieval and Early Modern Studies Collaboration

Monday, January 9, 2017

Since Ovid’s first-century Metamorphoses, transformative experiences and transformed selves have been fundamental sites of interest in European literature. At times bewildering, marvelous, and horrid, these physical transformations can invite readers to reconsider their bodies and, because of Ovid’s moral ambiguity, to reconsider their morality and thus to reconsider themselves. The powerful idea of transformation has shaped medieval and early modern thinking, a specter heralding what is yet to come, whether feared or longed for. Transformations can be violent, often involving aggressive bodily catalysts, or even death. But other transformations are rapturous, holy epiphanies. Transformations can be sly and illusory, indiscernible yet suspected.

Ladybird Books for Grown-ups: Between Nostalgia and Parody

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 3, 2017

The publication of Ladybird books ‘for Grown-Ups’ in the UK in 2015 and 2016 was a phenomenon, with the books selling over 2 million copies collectively. Titles such as The Ladybird Book of the Hipster, How it Works: The Mum, and The Ladybird Book of The Meeting ostensibly offer a frivolous take upon a variety of popular subjects in an attractive format. However, in doing so they reveal a complex temporality that prompts the reader to consider how their memories of an adult life imagined in childhood measure up to a present filled with everyday frustrations. What can these books tell us about contemporary British culture and its relationship with personal memory, collective historical past, and once-imagined future?

MFS Special Issue - Inter-imperiality

Modern Fiction Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 1, 2017

 

Guest Editor: Laura Doyle
Deadline for Submissions: 1 June 2017

The editors of MFS seek essays that engage with the concept of inter-imperiality, as developed in the recent PMLA “Theories and Methodologies” cluster (March 2015) and elsewhere. The global turn in literary and cultural studies, although productive, sometimes elides the post/colonial, economic, and other historical or geopolitical conditions of literary-cultural production. We solicit essays that offset this tendency by reading literary-cultural texts within an inter-imperial framework.
