“I was like, ‘Yo is something wrong with me? That the whole society seems to think that people like me don’t exist?’ And part of what inspired me, was this deep desire that before I died, I would make some mirrors so that kids like me might see themselves reflected back and might not feel so monstrous for it.”

Natural Philosophy, Literature, and the Embodied Imagination

From Tita Chico’s The Experimental Imagination (2019), Karen Bloom Gevirtz’s Women, the Novel, and Natural Philosophy (2014), and Dana Jalobeanu’s “Disciplining Experience” (2014), recent criticism has disrupted the notion of objectivity and detached or modest witnessing that is typically associated with the scientific method and that was put forth by seventeenth- and eighteenth-century natural philosophers, themselves. This panel seeks to explore the connections between seventeenth- and eighteenth-century science and literature by paying particular attention to the role embodiment—broadly construed as corporeality, experientiality, materiality, and/or subject-position—played in both.

As the popularity of mythical creatures in films and literature grows, there is one creature that remains prominent: the dragon. Dragons have become most visible recently in the cinematic versions of The Hobbit and in George R.R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones Series). However, there are other films, such as Dragonslayer (1981), Reign of Fire (2002), Dragonheart (1996), and the How to Train Your Dragon series (2010-2019), and numerous adult and children’s literature series that feature dragons.

deadline for submissions:

I invite chapter proposals on Marguerite Henry’s Newbery-winning novel King of the Wind for the first in a series of edited collections about Henry’s individual works, edited by Rachel L. Carazo (Northwestern State University).

All areas of study, with a common goal of representing the cultural, social, philosophical, and material significance of King of the Wind are invited to participate.

While writing my graduate thesis, “Conflicting Views of Culture and Power: The Arab World in Marguerite Henry’s King of the Wind”, Dawn Heinecken also published an article about the absence of scholarship on Henry’s works. These proposed collections therefore seek to increase the scholarship available about Marguerite Henry.

CFP -- Doctor Who: New Dawn (Essays on the Jodie Whittaker Era)

updated: 
Sunday, November 3, 2019 - 6:34am
Brigid Cherry
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, November 4, 2019

Doctor Who: New Dawn is a collection of essays devoted to the era of the first female Doctor, Jodie Whittaker, and the work of showrunner Chris Chibnall. Edited by Brigid Cherry, Matt Hills and Andrew O’Day, and due to be published by Manchester University Press in 2020, the collection responds to the reinvention and ‘new dawn’ of Doctor Who, primarily engaging with the show’s reframing in terms of gender and diversity. Due to an untimely withdrawal, we now invite proposals for a 6,000-word chapter on female fans’ responses to the casting of Jodie Whittaker and/or their reception of a female incarnation of the Doctor.
