Stratified Nature: Women’s Writing and Nature Past, Present, and Future

I would like to invite you to consider submitting one or more chapters to the forthcoming essay collection.

As we continue the study of the Anthropocene and society’s intersections with nature, this collection searches for essays on women’s writing, Anthropocene, and futurism. This anthology’s scope will be broad, with a focus on analysis of women writers, society, and nature in the past, present, and future.

Giant Steps: Coltrane, Space, and Innovation

The Savoy Ballroom in New York, Preservation Hall in New Orleans, the intersection of 12th Street and Vine in Kansas City, and the Green Mill on Chicago’s North Side all stand as cradles for jazz tradition.

How does one site those spaces though that have housed jazz innovations, like 1511 North 33rd in Philadelphia, John Coltrane’s Strawberry Mansion?Where are the places that jazz can call home? Improvisations and experimentation certainly, but what spaces and which places make those transitions in the artform, its delivery, and reception?

BALANCING ACTS No. 14, Vol. 2

Balance is an insecure state. When extreme acts of falling (releasing) and suspension (being unable to move) push bodies off balance, into a state of disorientation, balance is put into question. Following Sara Ahmed’s observation that bodies lose their balance if they do not move along the straight vertical line of capital (2016) and Anne Cooper Albright’s analysis which explores how we can practice realigning ‘at the edge of our balance’ (2019), this issue of Platform investigates moments in which balance is put at stake.

Periodicals and Silent Cinema (Special Edition of the Journal of Modern Periodical Studies)

Submissions are solicited for a special edition of the Journal of Modern Periodical Studies on the relationship between periodicals and silent cinema. Work is encouraged which treats the topic in its global, as well as Anglophone, context. 

The rise of silent cinema in the early twentieth century changed the business of writing and publishing forever. Editors, journalists, essayists and authors found themselves catering for readers whose cultural expectations had been transformed by their interactions with cinema. Debates raged over which periodical form would first be rendered obsolete: the daily newspaper? The illustrated magazine? The serialised novel? The weekly comic? The compendium of short fiction?
