Life Plus 2 Meters: How will we (not) adapt to life in a climate-changed world

updated: 
Friday, July 7, 2017 - 9:20am
David Zetland/Leiden University College
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 15, 2017

We’ve just finished a successful Kickstarter that raised $660 from backers.  That money will fund prizes for authors who submit the best “visions” (short essays of 800-1,000 words) of how we might (not) adapt to life in a climate-changed world.

Visions are “fictional” because they take place in the future, but they are based on the storyteller’s imagination or practitioner’s knowledge.

Anyone can submit a story or perspective no matter the author’s background, qualifications or job.

There will be four categories of prizes:

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 15, 2017

The 'animal turn' is one of the newest and most exciting developments in medieval scholarship. Researchers are increasingly interrogating the role of animals in society and culture, the interaction between human and beast, and the formation of human and non-human identities.

The Medieval Romance Society is hosting two inter-related sessions on the role of animals in romances at the 53rd International Congress on Medieval Studies 2018, Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo. We welcome papers which draw on a broad range of methodologies and address a variety of themes relating to animals.

SAMLA 89: High Art/Low Art Borders and Boundaries in Popular Culture
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 14, 2017

In the last two decades, Young Adult (YA) literature has become increasingly popular; both the YA fan base and YA publishing imprints have continued to grow at a time when many other subsets of book publishing are shrinking. Debates about whether YA literature qualifies as “High Art” or is always relegated beyond an arbitrary boundary to be “Low Art” are ongoing. Regardless of those debates, YA literature and its adaptations dominate popular culture.

Deadline Approaching: The New Urban Gothic Edited Collection Call for Chapters

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, August 30, 2017

Urban Gothic is a subgenre of Gothic fiction, Gothic crime fiction, and television whose narratives spring from discourse on industrial and post-industrial urban society. Often dystopic, it was pioneered in the mid-19th century in Britain and the United States and developed in serialisations such as R. L. Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1886); into novels such as Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray (1890). Much has been written on 19th century Anglo-centred Urban Gothic fiction and vampiristic, monstrous Urban Gothic, but less has been written on the 21st century reimagining and re-serialisation of the Urban Gothic in mechanised, altered, disabled, and dystopic states of being.

Deadline Extended: Learning to Teach: Women of Color Reflect on Graduate School Pedagogical Praxis

updated: 
Wednesday, July 5, 2017 - 2:34pm
Kimberly McKee and Adrienne Winans, editors for a special issue of Feminist Teacher
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

DEADLINE EXTENDED: SEPTEMBER 30, 2017 

Editors: Kimberly McKee, Grand Valley State University

Adrienne Winans, Utah Valley University

 

We are soliciting submissions for a special issue in Feminist Teacher focusing on pedagogies employed by women of color while in graduate school. Often, we do not critically engage with the formative processes and experiences that shape our future teaching praxis. This issue focuses on how we learn from our successes and failures in the classroom including women of color’s creation of supportive mentoring and peer networks. We envision these essays serving as touchstone in the ongoing conversations on how women of color survive and thrive in the academy.

Françoise Lionnet and Shumei Shi define transnational “as a space of exchange and participation wherever processes of hybridization occur and where it is still possible for cultures to be produced and performed without necessary mediation by center” (Minor Transnationalism 5). Yogita Goyal sees transnationalism “as a replacement for the outdated category of multicultural literature, and as an acknowledgement of the interconnectedness of the United States with the rest of the world through circuits of capital and culture” (Cambridge Companion to Transnational American Literature 7).
