Most cultures include one or several carnivalesque events in their ritual calendars. This is evident in pagan European festivities as much as in African, Asian, and American festivals. Since the 1970s and the gradual convergence between anthropology, cultural history, and sociology through the frame of ‘carnival studies,’ there has been much debate about whether carnival is a liberating social ritual.

CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS - NO. 1-2021 (JUNE) ITALIAN STUDIES IN SOUTHERN AFRICA Fantastika! Terror, supernatural, science fiction, utopia and dystopia in female narratives

Type: 
Call for Publications
Date: 
May 1, 2019
Location: 
Maine, South Africa
Subject Fields: 
Literature, Women's & Gender History / Studies, Cultural History / Studies, Humanities, Italian History / Studies

In 2011 Canadian scholar John Clute in Pardon This Intrusion: Fantastika in the World Storm introduces the umbrella term “fantastika” aimed at encompassing fantasy, science fiction and horror. The production of “fantastika” crosses genres in a spurious way and seems to escape from clear classifications, remaining somehow at the periphery of the literary system. In the light of this, an even more elusive object of critical analysis is constituted by the narrative space of women writers, which we here intend to investigate by adopting a comparative and multi-genre perspective.
