Life Writing in the Anthropocene

CFP: Life Writing in the Anthropocene A special issue of a/b: Auto/Biography Studies (www.tandfonline.com/raut) Guest Editors: Jessica White & Gillian Whitlock The University of Queensland

We have, arguably, entered the age of the Anthropocene, a time when our environment has been substantially shaped by humans rather than vice versa. It is an age marked by environmental decline and extinction: the last forty years have witnessed the irrevocable disappearance of half the world’s vertebrates; sixty percent of the world’s wild primates are facing extinction; and the geographic ...

Ex-Centric Narratives Journal

The Chicano Movement (El Movimiento) in the late 1960s signaled the flow of multiple Chicana/o cultural expressions notably associated with an intricate matrix of socio-political claims for self-empowerment. Pledging to enhance the inter-referential connection(s) between the community’s subversive tactics and the vast cosmos of dispossessed groupings across the globe, Chicana/o writers, artists and thinkers have undertaken to decipher the enigmas of being-in-the-world by making visible numerous enveloping discourses of appropriation. For instance, the Mexican American literary canon unyieldingly resonates what Chela Sandoval schematic ...

“A Sustainable Future for Latin America?” Special issue of A Contracorriente

“A Sustainable Future for Latin America?” Special issue of A Contracorriente (Spring 2019)

In the context of the emerging challenges of the 21st century, the task of envisioning and planning for sustainable societies has taken center stage. Sustainability is a complex concept that integrates multiple areas of study, yet it has been conventionally associated with environmental issues, and therefore its intimate connection to culture and the humanities has often been overlooked. In concert with the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development—also known as ...

Women’s Studies Special Issue: Futures of Feminist Science Studies

This special issue of Women’s Studies: an interdisciplinary journal invites submissions that address the intersections among science studies, feminism, and cultural studies.

Culture, Transport, Global Warming

One of humanity’s most serious problems, climate change is clearly a ‘human-made’ catastrophe. Various factors have contributed to global warming now turning into reality. One of the most significant, along with power generation and industry, is of course CO2 omissions from transport using fossil fuels. While both technological progress and climate change are popular themes in literature, film, and the visual arts, the equivalent cultural obsession with these issues is both scary and paradoxical. Cultural media have celebrated the might of technology, the ...

Call for Papers: Transformations Issue on Ecology of the Moving Image

What can moving images do? An ecological thinking of the moving image

This issue of Transformations calls for papers as provocations into the human-nature relation through the questioning power of the moving image. In particular, we are looking for contributions that focus on the function of the moving image as a material artefact or visual object within an ecological milieu or image-world, where the human relation to nature is rendered open-to-question. Thinking about the moving image extends to many formats, including panoramas, dioramas, video ...
