deadline for submissions:

Elizabeth Wurtzel (1967-2020) is most famous for her controversial bestselling autobiographies, Prozac Nation (1994) and More, Now, Again (2001). These works are often cited as seminal in the ‘memoir boom’ of the late 1990s and early 2000s and established Wurtzel as a cult classic and an icon of her generation. Her writing spans across almost 40 years and includes journalism, personal essays (most notably Bitch: In Praise of Difficult Women (1998)), and other non-fiction. In the aftermath of Wurtzel’s passing in January 2020, a reappraisal of her literary career seems both timely and a mark of tribute. We welcome articles exploring the following aspects:

On April 30th, 2020, protesters flocked into Lansing, MI, to contest stay-at-home orders that slowed the spread of Covid-19. A number of the crowd carried assault rifles, Confederate flags, swastikas and nooses. Such displays of racism and violence prompt a questioning of the “right to protest” and “allowed” voice, especially when such displays harm people.

How is undergraduate research implemented at community and technical colleges? How is undergraduate research used to train the workforce?

Contagions and Non-Human Animals: (Re)Viewing Disregarded Species in Real and Imagined Pandemics

The impact of COVID-19 and the threat that it poses to future human experiences has been well-documented in news reports during the past few months. However, now that non-human animals are possible carriers and becoming infected, their experiences, while often overlooked, are nevertheless integrated into the worldwide pandemic.

Thus, this collection seeks to balance essays about non-human animals during real-world pandemics, such as the COVID-19 one, with those of their experiences during literary or cinematic ones. The scope of this call for papers is broad and can include topics such as:

The Tunnel at 25 Project

William H. Gass’s magnum Opus The Tunnel turns 25 in 2020, and it’s been just over fifty years since parts of the novel began appearing in print in 1969; thus, it may be an appropriate time to reassess Gass’s massive work, which was met with a wide range of reactions when it came out in 1995, from effusive praise to bewilderment to outright hostility.

The primary goal of this project is to direct attention to The Tunnel, which has become one of those great books (no matter how one defines great) which is rarely read. In fact, on April 9, 2020, Lithub.com published a list of “The 50 Best Contemporary Novels over 500 Pages” – “Long Books, Worth Your Time” – and The Tunnel was not among them.

Designing the Self

Humanities Graduate Student Association, York University
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, May 30, 2020

Humans navigate personal and social relationships in the world through self-definition. Human nature is a capacious concept; one that has been challenged by diverse cultural revolutions in history. Today, as we stand at the crossroads of the human and the digital, technologies force us to reflect on how we view, create, and alter our selves through multiple media. As we enter the age of new media, and algorithms, the interpretations, perceptions, and representations of the self are continuously altered, while our identities become more fragile multiple and fluid.

Over the past four decades the increasing number of women film directors in Latin America has provided a substantial contribution to the field of world cinematography, adding original perspectives that deconstruct conventional conceptions on filmmaking. Their work sheds light across a vast spectrum of themes such as inquiries of history and memory, denunciation of dictatorships, condemnation of violence against minorities and the environment, and exploration of female sexuality.
