CFP for The Nordic Journal of English Studies

The Nordic Journal of English Studies (NJES) is an international journal publishing articles in the field of English literature and linguistics.

All scholars working within the field of English literature and linguistics are thus welcome to make submissions. New PhDs and PhD candidates are particularly encouraged to submit their work. NJES also publishes special issues focused on a particular theme in English language and literature. The journal is peer-reviewed and listed in the MLA, EBSCO and ERIH databases.

CFP for the Winter 2017 issue of the ESSE Messenger

The ESSE Messenger invites submissions for its Winter 2017 section of professional articles on the topic: Jane Austen Ours

2017 marks the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s death. What she left as her bequest to the world was to become a prolific space where sense, persuasion, sensibility and pride remained pre-eminent and where the Elinors, Mariannes, Janes, Elizabeths, Emmas, Darcys, Brandons, Willoughbys and Dashwoods still congregated together or at least briefly crossed each other’s paths. More than 200 years after their first publication, her novels are still avidly read as books and even transformed into successful film adaptations. In the 21st century her creations still provide a source of fascination and continue both to captivate well-seasoned readers and to animate fresh audiences. The questions that naturally arise are, then: Why are people still so obsessed with Jane Austen? Why is her legacy still alive and spreading? Is it because she has a sincere, direct, natural and convincing way of depicting human nature? Is it because her works are easily translated or adapted across various mediums, cultures and time periods? What is it that constitutes Jane Austen’s face in the 21st century? Questions such as these may help to suggest some of the topics for the Winter 2017 issue of the ESSE Messenger. Proposals should be submitted to the Editor by 1 October 2017.

CFP: Coils of the Serpent: Journal for the Study of Contemporary Power

Coils of the Serpent is a scholarly journal dedicated to the investigation of contemporary manifestations of power, launched in 2016. It is intended as an open-access platform on which diverse theories and analyses of power shall be developed, brought into dialogue with each other, discussed, criticized, illustrated and popularized. The orientation of the journal is interdisciplinary; it is conceived as a forum for a lively exchange of ideas and opinions between the fields of sociology, political science, philosophy, history, economics, literary, cultural and media studies, psychology, educational sciences, and others. The phenomenon of power is essentially tackled on three levels, which can be interwoven to varying degrees: on the level of theory, on the level of case studies (of concrete institutions, social practices, discourse formations, dispositifs, forms of subjectivation, spaces, etc.) and on the level of contributions dealing with cultural and artistic engagements with power.

Contributions addressing the issue on one or more of these levels are welcome from all the relevant disciplines. Besides the traditional essay, the journal also publishes more unconventional texts as well as shorter statements, discussions and commentaries. It publishes only original work and only manuscripts written in English. We also explicitly invite submissions that are not fully ‘rounded’ and ‘finished’ scientific pieces, but rather of a fragmentary, ‘work/thought-in-progress’ nature. Since Coils of the Serpent aims at reaching a wider readership than exists for academic writing, the texts submitted should aim at a certain degree of accessibility. All submissions will be peer-reviewed. We also invite proposals for thematic special issues.

To find out more, please go to: www.coilsoftheserpent.org

Manuscripts should be submitted to: submissions@coilsoftheserpent.org

CFP: The International Journal of James Bond Studies

The International Journal of James Bond Studies is an academic peer-reviewed journal dedicated to publishing interdisciplinary scholarship on all aspects of Ian Fleming’s James Bond franchise. The journal aims to develop contemporary critical readings of Ian Fleming’s James Bond across literary, filmic, and cultural history, and offers broader criticism of the popular appeal of Fleming’s creation and its relation to the spy genre. The journal will appeal to scholars, academics, and cultural critics whose work focuses on Ian Fleming and James Bond, as well as to fans of the James Bond franchise who wish to supplement their knowledge in this area.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

  • the James Bond novels (both original and continuation);
  • the James Bond films;
  • the music of James Bond;
  • James Bond computer games;
  • television, radio, and comic adaptations;
  • James Bond parodies and/or spin-offs;
  • James Bond merchandise;
  • the cultural impact of James Bond;
  • James Bond and spy fiction;
  • other academic works on James Bond.

Articles of 6,000-8,000 words and reviews of 2,000 words will be considered.

For full details on the style guide and journal conventions, please see our submissions page: http://jamesbondstudies.roehampton.ac.uk/about/submissions/
