Special Issue "Shakespeare and Digital Humanities: New Perspectives and Future Directions"

Monday, June 18, 2018 - 9:47am
Humanities (ISSN 2076-0787).
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 28, 2019

Shakespeare is now fundamentally digital. The technologies, resources and cultures of the digital age influence how we humans variously read, watch, research, and teach Shakespeare. This influence occurs in both apparent but also unseen ways since digital technologies include hidden processes, or non-human actors such as algorithms. In fact, the thing we call “Shakespeare” is the consequence of the interaction of agential humans and digital, non-human actors. The Special Issue of Humanities explores this technogenic dynamic and its significance for understandings of Shakespeare’s works and their cultural afterlives.

CALL FOR ARTICLES: Materiality in Wilkie Collins and his Contemporaries

Monday, June 18, 2018 - 9:41am
Dr Laura Eastlake, The Wilkie Collins Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 27, 2018

 GUEST EDITORS: DR KYM BRINDLE, DR LAURA EASTLAKE ‘I prophesy that we shall see ghosts and find treasures, and hear mysterious noises –and, oh heavens! What clouds of dust we shall have to go through’ (The Dead Secret) Wilkie Collins’s fiction depicts a rich cabinet of material curiosities. His novels evidence the wealth of objects with which the Victorians surrounded themselves in everyday life. This special issue looks to explore the entanglements between object and subject in Collins’s work. We seek proposals exploring the ways in which aspects of identity in Collins’s novels are articulated through forms of material culture.

Trash Objects (Deadline 7/1/18)

Trash Objects


The defining qualities of trash can change from moment to moment.  Who gets to discard detritus, and who is thrown into to the garbage can? Whether referring to cast-off material or undesirable aesthetics and affects, “trash” is designed, regulated, and disposed of by social hierarchies. Consumer culture manufactures trash–both the literal waste that lingers in landfills and the lowbrow schlock produced by executives in corporate boardrooms. But can trash also refuse Western power structures and the white, masculinist heteronorms inherent to them?


Origins and Assemblages of the "Modern;" Shakespeare and the Gothic Imagination

Monday, June 18, 2018 - 9:32am
Lucian Ghita (Clemson University)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 30, 2018

Writing in 1800, the Marquis de Sade claimed that the Gothic was the inevitable product of the revolutionary tremors felt throughout Europe. In revealing the proximity between poetic and political terror, the Gothic became the inescapable condition and symptom of modernity itself. The rise of the Gothic in late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century Europe is closely bound up with the discovery of Shakespeare as a "modern dramatist" by Hegel and, later, Marx. Like the Gothic, Shakespeare's plays had a propensity for exploring the "dark underbelly" of the new modern world. This seminar explores the mutually constitutive relationship between "Shakespeare" and "the Gothic," viewed as cultural catalysts for modernity and modern creativity.

This year, we particularly seek papers focused on pedagogical uses of fairy tales at all levels and in all fields, discussions of folkloric shifts from oral to literary to visual (filmic, artistic, etc) versions of tales, and creative pieces that retell or critique fairy tales or use the tales to comment on some aspect of culture or history.

Still, we are interested in as wide an array of papers as possible, so please do not hesitate to send a submission on any fairy tale related subject.
