We are writing to let you know about an exciting partnership which has developed as we move forward with plans for our annual "Free Exchange Conference" this year. We are pleased to be now be joining with

This is a particularly complementary partnership because the stated agenda of their group segues with our chosen topic for this year, "Power and Politics in Print."

This proposed special session on the episodic and the serial invites participants to consider the limitations and opportunities offered by episodic and serial forms across a variety of media (film, comics, novels, the poetic sequence, the podcast, etc.). Papers may consider such issues as narrative, temporality, identity, media ecology, and/or technology and aesthetics. To explore our topic, we will use Pecha Kucha presentations, an appropriate format for our subject!

The resurgence of formalist interests in recent years has sparked new discussions of the conception, role, and significance of form in literary and cultural studies as well as pedagogies. In her 2007 PMLA essay "What Is New Formalism," Marjorie Levinson lays out several strains of new formalism emerging in the American academy, which simultaneously embrace a renewal of attention to aesthetic form and express divergent emphases and agendas.

Postcolonial Shakespeares - CFP for Postcolonial Interventions Vol I, Issue 2 -
