This year's theme is "kindness."

Specific to Goddess Studies, what are some of the ways women have been portrayed as kind in religious and mythic narrative or iconography? In which ways has the personification of kindness-as-feminine been damaging to women's roles in the larger socio-political context? Does this have specific implications for narratives including LGBTQ and people of color? Are there any narratives of figures which the mainstream has adopted as malevolent, but actually have much more nuanced and complicated histories? Send your proposal to Angela Sells (omingintobeing@gmail.com.

Decolonization and globalization have made us conscious of the fact that not only is literature no longer national and autonomous, but it never was. Indeed one can only understand any national literature by comparing it with others…or by comparing it with a non-national or a transnational literature. For these reasons the field of comparative literature is more urgent than it ever was.

Thinking the Global with Literature (journal special issue)

updated: 
Monday, November 20, 2017 - 11:18am
New Global Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, November 30, 2017

For this literary-focussed issue of the New Global Studies journal we invite proposals for essays on any aspect of literature’s engagement with ideas of the global, from the ways in which literature’s conceptual reach may help us to think the possibilities of the planetary, to how the global literary marketplace can act as a barometer for shifting cultural norms.

The central question that this special issue poses is: how does literature help us to conceptualize the global? Secondary to this, the issue asks how literature, literary theory, and literary movements and networks may help us to shape, observe, and define what Bruce Mazlish called the ‘emerging global civil society’.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 6, 2017

With the current spate of contemporary high-budget properties that have sought to engage and adapt online horror content, increasing attention has been turned to communities of amateur critics, writers, illustrators, and fans that work to create horror in digital space. Their influence has been felt in a variety of media, from the television series Channel Zero and Supernatural, to the film The Tall Man and video games like Slender and SCP: Containment Breach. Fora in Something Awful, “r/nosleep”, and the SCP Foundation represent attempts by massive communities to create negotiated fictions, imagining mythic spaces and enduring, horrific creatures.

Comparative Drama Conference

April 5-7, 2018

Orlando, Florida

 

In light of the Broadway revival of M. Butterfly (opening in October 2017) we are particularly interested in receiving abstracts that address this production (some possible topics: Taymor’s vision of the play, Hwang’s changes to the play, the timeliness of M. Butterfly, the casting of Clive Owen as Gallimard, or a comparison with the original production).  Recognizing that not everyone will get a chance to see the play before abstracts are due, we also seek abstracts on the play in general.
