Chiasma #8 Non/Non-being/Negativity
The Marxist Literary Group invites you to join us for the 2021 Institute on Culture and Society, which will take place entirely online. In an effort to make the most of our virtual environment, we aim to foreground MLG’s longstanding commitment to provide intellectual and professional mentoring and support for graduate students, pre-tenure faculty, and contingent or precariously employed faculty. To that end, this year’s ICS will primarily comprise seminar-style sessions featuring works in progress from early-career scholars. There will also be two plenary events, to provide venues in which MLG members can meet collectively, see comrades, and engage intellectually in matters relevant to our organization.
This call is for editorial assistants for the peer-reviewed academic blog https://popmec.hypotheses.org (ISSN 2660-8839). Assistants will be regularly invited to join in editorial discussions, learn about the peer-reviewing process, and have the chance to participate in the coordination of calls, events, and activities. We welcome applications by early career researchers, including skilled BA and MA students interested in the topics the collective works on. Assistants will appear in the PopMeC Team page and a certificate of their editorial activities will be released whenever needed.
We are looking for editorial assistants for any of these tasks:
A non-guaranteed roundtable sponsored by the Association for the Study of Literature and Environment (ASLE) at MLA 2022.

We invite 250-word abstracts for papers about the role of creative expression in creating and maintaining Black life-worlds. How do experimental, transgressive, and radical aesthetics do more than just query historically entrenched racial discourse? How might they also activate, sustain, and rehearse Black liberation?

A Handbook of Indian Indie Cinema
Each year, a large number of Indian Indie films are released that suffer from lack of viewership even when it comes to their target audience, not to mention critical assessments: films that are regional, experimental in nature or have fresh, timely interventions. Many among these deserve recognition, not only from general audiences and moviegoers but also from film scholars and the academia. With the onset of streaming sites and OTT platforms, some of these have made it to the limelight, although a systematic handbook that discusses and features many of these films is currently, absent.
