We seek articles that explore how the conflation of 2020 events played out in the lives of women.
In 2020, women juggled professional careers and education, childcare and homeschooling, caregiving responsibilities for older family members, and unpaid household labor in the midst of a global pandemic. “Juggling” is perhaps too euphemistic a term for the kinds of pressures and decisions women made, willingly or not, in 2020. In a year that was at once the same experience and unique to every person, women know “the personal may be political, but the difficulties for women that feel personal are actually systemic” (Cheryl Glenn, Rhetorical Feminism and this Thing Called Hope, 73).

In Roland Emmerich’s Anonymous, the playwriting Earl of Oxford looks on from the galleries of the Globe as a performance of his/Shakespeare’s Henry V whips up a large crowd of groundlings, just as the Earl had intended it. Earlier the Earl had already enthused over a match of tennis about the possibilities of theatre – “That’s power.” This year’s Shakespeare Seminar seeks to discuss the countless ways in which Shakespeare, his works, early modern culture as well as later performances of Shakespeare’s works are political or have been politicised. To what extent can his plays be seen to endorse certain power politics? Are politics in Shakespeare ultimately a question of genre?
Registration is now open for the annual University of Glasgow College of Arts PGR Conference.
Metamorphosis refers to a dramatic change in the form, structure or character of an entity, distinctly characterised as a process whereby the old is subsumed, absorbed or self-devoured to provide the substance to forge the new—but how is this concept experienced in contemporary culture?
How does metamorphosis materialise in research practice, academia, social justice, or identity? What social, political or cultural forces engender metamorphosis, and how have these transformations been received? Is metamorphosis creative or destructive? Tangible or intangible? Abrupt or fluid?
We invite you to submit to our upcoming conference.

About the Journal
Unsettling Sexuality: Eighteenth-Century Queer Horizons invites proposals for chapters that trace, explore, and imagine new interdisciplinary horizons in eighteenth-century queer studies. This collection of essays primarily seeks to revisit archives of gender, sex, and sexuality in order to visualize the ruptures and fissures of previous queer studies scholarship and trends that are just emerging--some of which are described below. We are especially interested in essays that imagine other queer worlds, outside of a British or continental home, to better flesh out global explorations and conceptions of queerness that are not beholden to colonial parameters and definitions.

After the Pandemic: The State of English
How has COVID-19 affected the already vastly altered landscape of post-secondary English studies, for good and/or for ill? After all, recent years have brought important, ever-growing attention to a range of inequities, even as the public continues to question the value of higher education and the humanities. COVID-19 has only magnified the terrain of higher education, which has been shifting economically, pedagogically, and technologically. Pedagogy invites both commentary and narrative pieces of no more than 15 pages addressing this broad question, from whatever part of the discipline you find yourself.
