Torture: An Inclusive Interdisciplinary Project

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 22, 2019

As terrorism has seen a new rise in past decades, organizations such as ISIS, Boko Haram and similar others are thriving on the fear that is increasingly gripping the world. Their way of spreading horror and gaining the obedience of controlled populations is largely based on mass torture and killing. However, they are far from alone in this practice. Throughout history, torture has been used for a great variety of reasons, ranging from the twisted satisfaction of psychopathic criminals, to state and/or Church sanctioned means of punishing evil doers or extracting confessions; from violently resolving domestic disputes to means of protecting national security.

Thursday, January 31, 2019

I am looking for one essay to fill an empty spot in an edited collection on the television show Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. This essay should address the critical reception of the show. The final draft of the essay is needed by March 15, 2019. 

The collection overall argues that the show participates in quality or post-quality television programming through its generic hybridity and diverse cast and storylines. 

If interested, please submit queries and/or a 300-word abstract to akonkle@georgiasouthern.edu by January 31, 2019.

Monsters
An Inclusive Interdisciplinary Conference

Saturday 31st August 2019 - Sunday 1st September 2019
Lisbon, Portugal

This inclusive interdisciplinary conference seeks to investigate and explore the enduring influence and imagery of monsters and the monstrous on human culture throughout history. In particular, the project will have a dual focus with the intention of examining specific ‘monsters’ as well as assessing the role, function and consequences of persons, actions or events identified as ‘monstrous’. The history and contemporary cultural influences of monsters and monstrous metaphors will also be examined with a view to forming a selective publication to engender further collaboration and discussion.
