Inclusive Fantasy

The vast worlds of fantasy fiction often mirror our own. Through this mirror, readers may reflect on their values when they see real-world problems staged in speculative spaces. As a result, fantasy has the power to open the boundaries of pedagogy for today’s students, especially when learning through a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) lens. This ground-breaking, edited essay collection published by McFarland and Company will take two crucial paths: one that celebrates critical analyses educators and scholars can use to empower students and readers, and another that inspires fans and gamers to be more civically engaged with the texts they consume and communities they inhabit.

Brontë Studies is delighted to announce that it is hosting a Special Issue to celebrate the life and work of Anne Brontë. Led by articles emerging from the Brontë Society’s conference, ‘I wished to tell the truth’: Anne Brontë at 200 that was originally scheduled for 2020 but, due to the pandemic, was reorganised and held online in 2021, the Special Issue presents an ideal opportunity to challenge the long-held perception that the youngest Brontë sibling was the least talented and lacked the genius of her sisters. With Anne Brontë’s marginalisation in mind, potential topics for articles to be explored could include, but are not limited to, the following:

Call For Papers: Illusion & Delusion 

From the Coronavirus pandemic to the Russo-Ukrainian War, researchers are arguably more aware now than ever of their presence at the crossroads of perceived and misconstrued conflicts. The  global political and ecological crises that confront us are strongly linked to imperialism, colonization, capitalism, and exploitation of resources. Literature and film offer pathways to explore global conflict and as a result - whether on the page or the screen - lines are blurred between what is real and what is perceived.

ACLA 2023: Memory in the Movies and TV Series (Chicago, March 16-19, 2023)

ACLA
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 31, 2022

Following the success of its previous ACLA seminar “Stories of Memory in the 21st Century” in 2022, this seminar invites paper proposals to discuss how memory is represented and imagined diversely in the movies and TV series from different cultural contexts. Living in an age saturated with memory and forgetting, we see the protagonists unsettled by their lost memory in films such as Memento (2000), The Bourne Identity (2002), The Girl On the Train (2015), etc.. These amnesic protagonists, haunted by déjà vu they can never make sense of, often experience trauma and violence. Their attempts to repeat or re-enact the past complicate one’s understanding of temporalities as well as their identity.
