Critical Race Theory in 2022 - Deadline in 3 weeks!

Friday, January 7, 2022 - 2:30pm
Journal of Critical Race Inquiry
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 31, 2021

This special issue of the Journal for Critical Race Inquiry aims to theorize, historicize, and challenge contemporary misreadings of and antagonisms toward Critical Race Theory. Last summer, an attack on Critical Race Theory was launched in a series of articles in the conservative magazine City Journal. The attack gained momentum when the articles’ author appeared on the Tucker Carlson show and drew the attention of then-President Trump. “Critical Race Theory” came to signify and conflate everything from diversity training and employment equity to critical thinking about white privilege or the history of racism and colonialism in the United States to campaigns to defund the police.

We have been invited by McFarland to expand a recent article on diversity and cancel culture in television (Anderson-Lopez et al., 2021) for a book proposal further exploring the phenomenon of audience sway over television content. Please see the CFP below and feel free to reach out to us with questions. We hope to turn around the book proposal to McFarland in a timely manner, so please note the January 10, 2022, deadline for 300-500 word chapter proposals. We look forward to reading your submissions and collaborating on this edited collection!


Infrastructure and Aesthetics in the Global South (ASLE 2022)

Thursday, December 30, 2021 - 11:08am
Rebecca Oh / ASLE 2022 (Association for the Study of Literature and Environment)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 11, 2022

This session seeks papers that attend to the affordances of infrastructure for aesthetics and of aesthetics for infrastructure in postcolonial/global South literature. We aim to explore infrastructure's own aesthetic capacities, the ways in which built forms and their materials produce specific aesthetic effects and social uses, or the ways in which infrastructure makes aesthetic perception available to social practice. In turn we are interested in the way aesthetic qualities like form, genre, reception, plot, narrative, or medium are themselves infrastructural and shape encounters with infrastructure.

How Things Will Go: Genre and Infrastructure in the Environmental Humanities (ASAP/13)

Sunday, January 9, 2022 - 5:48pm
Rebecca Oh, ASAP/13 (Association for the Study of the Arts of the Present)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, February 5, 2022

Genre and infrastructure are both structuring forms that shape how things will go. Generic narrative worlds shape emplotment, likely or unlikely events, types of characters, in/appropriate actions, and readerly expectations; genre organizes both narrative elements and the relations between them by creating frames and edges through which to interpret the world. Likewise, infrastructures organize things and the relations between them, whether by enabling or blocking the movement of people and objects. They constrain or facilitate uses and perceptions. This seminar will consider the affordances of genre for infrastructure and of infrastructure for genre, asking how these structuring forms are being taken up in the environmental humanities.
