deadline for submissions:

Call for papers for a book approved for publication by Routledge, on Bollywood cinema, expected to fall within the interdisciplinary spaces of Cultural Studies, Film Studies and Postcolonial Studies.

Even as the air in Delhi grows increasingly toxic and poisonous, a fearful, dreaded specter is haunting the subcontinent today, just as toxic as the poisonous air. The rise and rise of Hindutva, or Hindu nationalism or political Hindu agenda that has engulfed India has also initiated the favorite pursuit of right wing of invoking the ‘glorious past’. This ‘glorious past is primarily being invoked by a surge of historical(s) in Bollywood.

Medieval Leavings
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, December 31, 2020

Medieval Leavings (https://medievaleavings.hcommons.org/) is a new, Open Access, online journal that publishes editorial orphans on topics in Medieval Studies (broadly construed) and makes them available for our community to use. We hope to ameliorate some of the inequities (and maybe also indignities) of journal publishing.

Medieval Leavings will also feature a special section, Archival Darlings (https://medievaleavings.hcommons.org/our-archival-darlings/), highlighting exciting archival finds that may be useful for other scholars to know about, but that simply don’t fit our own formal publication plans.

An international conference hosted by the Chicago Fashion Lyceum
October 8-10, 2020, Chicago, IL

For a generation of fashion students and lovers of fashion raised on Project Runway, fashion is defined with a hard binary: you are either ‘in’ or you are ‘out’. “Fashion at the Periphery” aims to destabilize this binary by looking at fashion issues and subjects that reside in the periphery, some by choice, others through neglect, and many as a result of injustice.
