Emily Dickinson’s musical life, a topic of growing critical interest, is the subject of a panel at the Emily Dickinson International Society’s Triennial Conference in Asilomar, CA, August 8-11. The groundbreaking work of scholars such as Carolyn Cooley and Carlton Lowenberg, as well as later scholarship by George Boziwick and Paraic Finnerty, among many others, have helped to move discussion beyond the constricting forms of Congregationalist hymnody. Since the online publication of Dickinson’s music book by Harvard’s Houghton Library, we increasingly understand Dickinson’s musical life as richer and more engaged with popular culture than did previous generations of critics. What do we know about Dickinson’s musical life?

Coming of age and identity quests are often intertwined in stories, be it in novels, comics, or films. However, not every identity quest happens to teenagers. Adults, too, are on a constant search for who they are and/ or why they are. These questions are tackled and examined in the 2019 Netflix TV show Umbrella Academy as well as in the eponymous comic books series from 2008/2009. The comic series consist of 3 volumes, “Apocalypse Suite,” “Dallas,” and “Hotel Oblivion.”

Paper abstracts needed for PAMLA (Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association) Conference Special Session on Shakespeare:

Shakespeare’s plays abound in fools direct, but the language, gesture, and attitude of “foolery” run through his work even aside from the antics of characters such as Feste, Lear’s Fool, or Touchstone. This panel will concentrate on moments in Shakespeare that are not so much driven by the playwright’s most famous practitioners of the fool’s trade, but rather subtly informed and structured by that trade and by the perspective it affords.

Parallel Universes: Remaking Superheroes in Film and Popular Media

Friday, June 7, 2019

Twenty-first century film and media have seen a rise not only in remakes and ‘re-imaginings’, but also in transmedia adaptations, works based in nostalgic callbacks, fan-written versions of media, and genre-bending remixes. While a wider body of work exists on transmedia storytelling and adaptation, contemporary superhero remakes and re-adaptations are still a largely unexplored subject, even as interest in the remake phenomenon continues to grow. The history of superheroes – and their supervillain counterparts – is rich in re-adaptations and remakes. This process seems intrinsic to the superhero’s textual and cultural journey, as it is re-shaped and re-moulded, from comics to film and other media forms.

Monday, July 1, 2019

Joseph Conrad and Ethics seeks essays (6000 to 8000 words) that deal with ethics in Conrad’s fiction. 

Since Aristotle's Ethics and Plato’s The Republic, ethics has been a fundamental concern throughout European intellectual history. Over the last three decades, in particular, there has been a growing interest in ethics in the social sciences and humanities, inspired by Emmanuel Levinas, Jacques Derrida, and Jürgen Habermas, to name a few. Ethics is central to Joseph Conrad’s works. It is conveyed both through his thematic concerns and narrative techniques. However, this prominent topic has not yet received the attention it deserves.

This panel welcomes papers that chart recent movements in rhetorical theory—in particular, papers on developments in rhetoric’s connection to materiality, inclusive of broad movements in “new materialism,” “agential realism,” “vitalism,” “object-oriented ontology,” and “object-oriented rhetoric,” and others. Possible questions to be considered: is “agency” uniquely human? Does agency extend into the non- or transhuman domain? To what extent do objects, materials, and environments rhetorically impact human decisions?

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 10, 2019

From starting its own streaming service to producing live action recreations of its most successful animated films, Disney has had a fruitful year. Disney films are both a reflection and also a creator of social norms, and critical response has interpreted the intertextual heteroglossia of discourse between films and society to assess how Disney ideology is absorbed, reflected, rejected, or altered. This panel explores the discursive, literary, filmic, and historical dimensions of the Disney phenomenon in both the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
