Cognitive Modernisms


Guest Editor: Paul B. Armstrong, Brown University

Deadline for Submissions:   8 January 2021


Modernism has long been associated with an interest in consciousness, psychology, and the inner life, but critics have also long disagreed about how to understand this interest and what to make of it.  The recent proliferation of cognitive approaches to reading and literature has renewed interest in questions concerning the modernist preoccupation with consciousness but has spawned new controversies about how to address them. 


Life Writing as Political Voice

Monday, March 30, 2020 - 2:45pm
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 17, 2020

City dwellers have a unique opportunity to see and engage in group political activities that those in more rural areas do not. Their everyday lives can be impacted by political demonstrations whether they are actively participating or not. The perspectives that we usually get are from the government, press, or political leaders. These accounts miss how people actually experience and understand the protests they see and/or participate in.

Sports-Related Young Adult Literature: Society, Culture, and Politics

Thursday, March 26, 2020 - 12:59pm
Study and Scrutiny: Research on Young Adult Literature
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 15, 2020

The confluence of sports culture and sociopolitical issues has a long history. Memorable examples of athletes of yesteryear embracing activism include Tommie Smith and John Carlos raising their fists against institutional racism, Muhammad Ali opposing the Vietnam War, and Billie Jean King fighting for gender equity. Contemporary examples include Colin Kaepernick protesting police violence against people of color and the U.S. women’s national soccer team charging U.S. Soccer with gender discrimination. Each example underscores the reality that athletes are so much more than the games they play. Many authors have honored this tradition through the fictional athletes they portray in contemporary sports-related young adult literature (YAL).
