Flow Volume 26 Special Issue: “Streaming Wars and Television’s Next Juncture”

As the new decade dawns, Disney, Apple, WarnerMedia, and NBCUniversal have launched (or will soon launch) their own streaming platforms. These entrants prove once again that the ecology of television and digital content is one that continuously shifts, raising the question: Is a streaming war in full swing? With legacy media companies and major technology companies entering the ring, has the streaming arena now become too crowded? And how will consumers, amidst ever-multiplying, well-funded platforms vying for their attention, alter and/or reinforce their viewership and subscription consumer habits?

Blurring distinctions between the morally edifying, instructive, and perverse, P.T. Barnum’s American Museum at the corner of Broadway and Ann Street in New York was central to the emerging culture of popular entertainment in the 1840s-1860s. Les Harrison estimates that by 1865, forty-one million visitors attended P.T. Barnum’s American Museum in New York: nearly six million more than the total population of the United States at the conclusion of the Civil War.

Exploring Alterity: Self, Identity and the Social

 

Contemporary politics is rife with questions of identity, making one implicitly familiar with notions of “alterity.” Alterity can be defined as “otherness” or “being otherwise” and at times, is used simply to mean “difference.” This conference intends to unpack varied notions of "alterity" as a conceptual category, broadly understood as "difference" or "variation" within disciplines such as Sociology, Philosophy, Linguistics, Psychology, Literature, and Economics.

Hawthorne and the EcoGothic

The Annual Conference of the MLA will meet in Toronto on January 7-10, 2021. The editors of Gothic Nature observe that the Gothic now serves as a primary means to articulate the horrors of climate change and our current environmental crisis. EcoGothic, however, has been a fundamental component of American literature since William Bradford recoiled from the continent’s “hideous & desolate wilderness.” A recent spate of articles not only acknowledges this strange continuity but has begun to situate Nathaniel Hawthorne as one of the tradition’s key figures. This panel invites papers that further investigate Hawthorne’s entanglement with the ecoGothic.

CFP for NJCEA Annual Conference on March 21, 2020 at Seton Hall University

 

Joyce Carol Oates famously asked, "Where are you Going? Where have you Been?" As the English profession continues to evolve, our conference will explore these questions.

 

We are particularly interested in proposals for full traditional panels including at least four presenters, roundtables of six to eight speakers, workshops, individual papers, posters, and presentations that consider these questions for the profession, for the discipline, for our areas of specialization, and for the larger society. What is our role as scholars, researchers, teachers and community members during a time of worldwide transition?
