Call for papers – ​Soapbox: Journal for Cultural Analysis​ 1.1 “Practices of Listening”

For the first issue of ​Soapbox​, a graduate journal for cultural analysis, we invite submissions that explore listening as a critical practice. With this topic, we aim to bring together accounts of listening as both a method and object of analysis, including everyday practices and new modes of research that articulate who or what can listen and who or what can be heard.

International Conference Endangered bodies: Representing and Policing the Body in Western Popular Culture

The notion of ‘endangered bodies’, or bodies in danger, arises from our concern with current western political and socio-economic tendencies and practices against the discriminated or disenfranchised Other, whose body is physically, materially and symbolically subjected to internal pressures towards normalization and homogenization. The vulnerability or differential power of the Other’s body becomes, in this sense, subject to social control and / or commodification.

Blackness and Disability: The Reprise
 
In summer 2017, African American Review published a special issue on Blackness and Disability. This issue was groundbreaking for a variety of reasons. So that it does not function as a scholarly version of a one-hit wonder, and since, without prodding, these conversations would get stagnated, we aim to create another space for scholars to have this conversation about Blackness and disability in CLAJ, entitled Blackness and Disability: The Reprise.
