The last two decades have witnessed an explosion of literary works that adapt, challenge and elaborate the narrative and lyrical traditions of the Spanish-speaking world. From the neorrural novel of Spain to the Mexican ‘Generación del Crack’, from the neoclassical poetry of Aurora Luque and Juan Antonio González Iglesias to the experimental artifacts of Agustín Fernández Mallo or Pablo Katchadjian, novelists and poets in Spain and Latin America have reimagined their literary traditions and adapted them to the new realities of the 21st century.

Middle Eastern Literatures
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

MEL (Middle Eastern Literatures) is willing to consider a potential special issue on men and masculinities to discuss the changing social construction of masculinities in Middle Eastern literatures, and to elaborate on how literature as a field can contribute to the theorization of masculinities. This special issue is intended to explore masculinities as dynamic and multifaceted phenomena emerging within contradictory cultural, material and discursive contexts of the Middle East. The aim is to locate and dislocate masculinities, along the line of thought presented by Andrea Cornwall and Nancy Lindisfarne in Dislocating Masculinity (1994).

The concept of evil received much attention throughout the 20th century. Despite the industrial scale atrocities committed in Nazi Germany, Stalinist Russia, and Maoist China, alongside the genocides in Cambodia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Rwanda, as well as the explosion of serial killers like Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, and Andrei Chikatilo in the latter part of the 20th century, the first two decades of the 21st century have been largely unconcerned with rigorous discussion of such evil.
