CFP | Essence & Critique: Journal of Literature and Drama Studies

Essence & Critique: Journal of Literature and Drama Studies invites submissions for the inaugural issue of the journal – a general issue on Literature and Drama Studies.

Essence & Critique: Journal of Literature and Drama Studies is an open access peer-reviewed academic journal that serves as a forum for multi- and interdisciplinary discussions across Literature and Drama Studies, providing academicians, scholars, professionals, and students with the opportunity to disseminate their research to a diverse audience of peers and professionals.

Scott Fitzgerald proposes that “[t]hat is part of the beauty of all literature. You discover that your longings are universal longings, that you’re not lonely and isolated from anyone. You belong.” Literature is unique but it is limitless in its extent, for “literature is life,” as Robert A. Nimmo puts it. ‘We belong’, as literature is human. Human narrates the story and is told in the story. Human makes hi(s)tory and is told in hi(s)tory. Literature is human/ities and it “is the question minus the answer” for “the birth of the reader,” as Roland Barthes suggests. We come to set sail for new articles, new writers, and new readers. We come to take responsibility for the space we belong to.

The first issue aims to cover literary and theatrical works in general.

Essence & Critique: Journal of Literature and Drama Studies welcomes papers and book reviews addressing general studies on Literature and Drama from all disciplines within the Humanities. As a multi- and interdisciplinary journal, we particularly welcome research with an interdisciplinary approach. Papers may be theoretical, empirical, or interpretative in nature, and all submissions will be considered. Topics may include but are not limited to:

Literary/Theatrical/Dramatic Studies
Literary/Theatrical/Dramatic Genres
Literary/Theatrical/Dramatic Theories

Literature/Drama and Sociology
Literature/Drama and Psychology
Literature/Drama and Rhetoric

Literature/Drama and History
Literature/Drama and Politics
Literature/Drama and Philosophy
Literature/Drama and Music
Literature/Drama and Science

Please send a digital copy of the complete manuscript using the template provided by Essence & Critique: Journal of Literature and Drama Studies to essencecritiquejournal@gmail.com by Friday April 30th 2021.

Submission length is 5000-8000 words for original articles, and 1500-2000 words for book reviews. Please omit references to the author in manuscripts to ensure anonymous reviews. The journal does not accept manuscripts previously published by or simultaneously submitted to other publication venues. Please contact essencecritiquejournal@gmail.com with any questions.

Deadline extended: 30 June 2020.

CFP for the Winter 2019 issue of The ESSE Messenger

Theme: The book-to-film debate in the age of visual commodities

New deadline: 15 November 2019.

‘Did you read the novel?’ – ‘No, but I saw the film.’ This is a dialogue that often takes place today. Besides being common, this short conversation is also very revealing about the relation between the printed text and its visual representation as a film or TV series. And, obviously, it couldn’t be otherwise in a world dominated by TV sets, computers, tablets and smart phones with video facilities incorporated, and by video games, rock videos, home cinema, and many other appliances that reproduce images. More than that, the new commercialism could not but take advantage of such a reality and turn everything into commodities and try to extract profit from them. Novels about Harry Potter or Games of Thrones would probably not have achieved such rocketing success if they hadn’t subsequently had their visual adaptations.  J.R.R. Tolkien might still be resting on dusty library shelves surrounded by his Middle-earth if he hadn’t been (re)discovered by film makers and adapted for the silver screen.

Feminist Responses to Populist Politics

Guest editors: Mónica Cano Abadía (University of Graz), Sanja Bojanić (University of Rijeka), Adriana Zaharijević (University of Belgrade)

‘Populism’ is as slippery a term as the political soil it rhizomes in. During the last decade, it has been tested in political reality on numerous occasions and with varying outcomes. The distinction between right and left populisms has also become a staple in everyday academic, policy, and civil society discourses. On the left or the right, populisms often act as a bogeyman, as a threat to politics as usual, and as a sure sign that the world is, yet again, out of joint.

But are these misgivings of any substance? Perhaps the world is actually disjointed. It may be that populisms, left or right, fill in the cracks and fissures that have been lain open for only a short period of time, one that coincides with decades of sustained feminist efforts to change the world for the better. Despite the gains, much of what has been won is now being brought to a halt – and it seems that populisms play their share in this stoppage. It is therefore vital to ask what feminist responses to populisms could be. Can the answer to this question be reduced to the issue of political allegiance, or is it a matter of needing to adjust to new political realities? Would this imply then embracing these realities as well? What is the role that populisms now play in shaping the relationship between radical and mainstream feminisms? If we claim that feminism has always been populist to a certain extent, then we have to have a clear notion of the populus at its core. Alternatively, we might categorically posit that feminist populism is a contradiction in terms and therefore also reject the possibility of left populist feminisms.

This special issue addresses feminist visions of politics as a different answer to populisms’ challenges. We wish to mark ambivalences and name conceptual reasons for why it is insufficiently daring or even reactionary to place feminist emancipatory strategies close to politically divisive contemporary tendencies. Instead, we call for a return to notions of feminist resistance and resilience – notions that put an emphasis on agency, change, and hope in the face of the grave challenges we are faced with around the world. The following topics may be addressed:

  • What does ‘feminist populism’ refer to?
  • To what does feminist resistance to populism refer?
  • How does feminist resilience function?
  • What are the consequences, challenges and possible solutions that feminist resilience can bring about in civil society and institutions?

Detailed proposals (up to 800 words) for full essays (7,500 words), as well as a short biography (max. 100 words) should be sent to all of the editors by 31 December 2019: Mónica Cano Abadía (monica.cano-abadia@uni-graz.at), Sanja Bojanić (sanja.bojanic@uniri.hr), Adriana Zaharijević (zaharijevic@instifdt.bg.ac.rs)

Disseminating Knowledge: The Effects of Digitalized Academic Discourse on Language, Genre and Identity

Guest editors: Rosa Lorés Sanz (Universidad de Zaragoza), Giuliana Diani (Università di Modena e Reggio Emilia)

Recent decades have seen a substantial evolution in discursive practices, particularly those associated with institutions, the sciences and the economy. This state of affairs has been enhanced by the appearance of digital platforms, which have made of the web a privileged access platform both for knowledge creation and knowledge dissemination in an increasingly globalized society. This scenario is also characterized by the use of English as the international language of communication, most users being non-native speakers of the language. Thus, the spread of electronic platforms as well as the use of English as a vehicle of international communication have led to the emergence of new discursive practices or the adaptation of existing ones to the digital mode.

Digital affordances, and the immediacy, visibility, and connectedness they bring along, have changed the way we communicate and project our identities. They have also changed the way we approach texts as objects of analysis. This special issue aims to become a forum for some of the latest contributions to this topic. Proposals from different analytical approaches are welcome. These approaches might include computer-mediated discourse analysis, pragmatics, intercultural rhetoric, genre-based analysis, corpus studies or multimodality. The following topics may be addressed:

  • Are digital genres in academic settings modelled on traditional genres in paper format? Or, rather, is the digital mode generating new genres? What are their rhetorical and discursive features?
  • How is identity constructed and represented in digital academic discourse?
  • In which ways has the use of English as a Lingua Franca in the academic world been influenced by the use of digital platforms? To what extent do culture and discipline affect the shaping of academic web-mediated discourse?
  • How do verbal and visual modes interact in academic digital contexts? Which new methods of approaching discourse are needed to understand web-mediated texts?

Detailed proposals (up to 800 words) for full essays (7,500 words), as well as all inquiries regarding this issue, should be sent to both editors by 31 December 2019: Rosa Lorés-Sanz (rlores@unizar.es) and Giuliana Diani (giuliana.diani@unimore.it).

Call for Papers: Journal of Early Modern Studies (JEMS) 10, 2021

Early Modern European Crime Literature: Ideology, Emotions and Social Norms

Edited by Maurizio Ascari and Gilberta Golinelli

This issue aims to explore various inter-related fields within the vast domain of European crime literature, with a particular focus on the British Isles. The literary and cultural phenomena we intend to investigate range from street literature, with its variety of broadsides and chapbooks, to drama (from revenge tragedies to domestic tragedies) and providential fictions, including the translation and transnational circulation of crime stories. While studying the connection between real crime and the literary imagination at various levels, this issue delves into the ideological import of crime narratives intended as prevention of crime, a form of psychological ‘policing’ that compensated for the absence of organized police forces by reasserting the inevitability of mundane and supernatural punishment.

Main deadlines:

30th June 2019: Please send your proposal and working title to the editors maurizio.ascari@unibo.it; gilberta.golinelli2@unibo.it.

20th July 2019: Notification of proposal acceptance.

10th January 2020: Submission of articles to the editors.

CFP for the Winter 2018 issue of the ESSE Messenger

Theme: Language Contact Phenomena

The multilingual context we live in leads to constant interaction between languages. As a result, there are various language contact phenomena that have become common practice among speakers and that are constantly shaping the individual’s language use and identity. This issue of the ESSE Messenger invites scholars to send their articles on topics related to micro-sociolinguistics (borrowing, code-switching, translanguaging, polylingual languaging, metrolingualism, translingual practices), macro-sociolinguistics (language shift, language maintenance), and how these phenomena influence the speakers’ linguistic practices and identity.
