Let’s not wait for George R.R. Martin to wrap up ASOIAF with the 3,000 page The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring. Let’s talk of thrones and let the games resume this fertile Beltrane (May Day, Friday, May 1, 2020), opening with a panel on Season 8 of A Game of Thrones, airing what went right and wrong with the HBO series, viewed by 31 million. Perhaps you want to craft a formal paper (20 minutes) or propose joining a panel (or bring your own team from campus); offer a lightning presentation (5 minutes) or experiment with a PechaKucha (20 slides, 20 second commentary each, in 6’40” total).

Transnationalism is both a conservative force, structurally implicated in nationalism and capitalist modernity, and the potential ground for diasporic, mestiza, and cosmopolitan subversions. Within literary study, it operates as both a descriptor diagnosing intertextuality and communication and a methodology for research and remaking periodization.

Papers may explore, but are not limited to, questions like: how do distinct reading communities emerge, and how do these communities shape the reception of particular texts? What shapes have collective action taken in historically specific reading formations and interpretive communities? How do authors’ affiliations with particular subcultures, collectives, classes, or groups impact the creation and reception of their texts?

CALL FOR PAPERS, PROJECTS, AND WORKS-IN-PROGRESS 

In Numbered Lives: Life and Death in Quantum Media, scholar and feminist digital humanities practitioner Jacqueline Wernimont examines recordkeeping technologies used to account for human lives and bodies, beginning as early as the 15th century. The book, in part a robust critical historiography, challenges us to interrogate and engage mindfully with contemporary data issues and methods, and with the ways in which they shape our narratives regarding the value of lives and cultures.

Interdisciplinarity is fundamentally and productively transgressive; it challenges us to reflect on the questions and forms of analysis that typically dictate field-specific thought. Interdisciplinarity, both as theory and as critical practice, is of special importance to fields within the humanities and social sciences.
