The last decade has witnessed a transformation in electronic visual media. Film, television, video games and user- generated- content (UGC) are increasingly commingling. This has facilitated significant changes in the traditional models of production and consumption, leading to new practices and relationships as divergent production communities operate together.

‘What happens when Derrida, a great thinker, becomes silent? What becomes of Derrida, what becomes of his friends, those who read him, think through him, speak to him?’(Douzinas, “Adieu Derrida”) With this rhetoric question, Costas Douzinas starts a book Adieu Derrida, in which renowned contemporary thinkers (Jean-Luc Nancy, Alain Badiou, Gayatri Spivak, Slavoj Žižek and others) reflect on the intellectual legacy of one of the most important philosophical figures of 20thcentury, Jacques Derrida. Indeed, what does it mean now, after almost 15 years after Derrida’s death, to read him, to think through him, to speak to him?

Vernon Press call for chapter proposals

Sunday, July 1, 2018

Vernon Press invites chapter proposals on Arthurian Legend in the 20th & 21st Centuries. The volume will be edited by Susan Austin, Associate Professor of English at Landmark College in Putney, VT.

 

Nostalgia for an imagined and glorious past has influenced the evolution of stories about King Arthur and his court for centuries.  According to the moods and needs of the period, new characters were added to demonstrate or question the excellence of these paragons, or to replace those who had perhaps become too human or simply gone out of style.  New plot motifs, such as the search for the grail and Lancelot’s love for Guinevere became part of the legend.

From #BlackLivesMatter and #TakeAKnee to #WhyIStayed and #MeToo, hashtag activism campaigns have continued to proliferate in recent years. Whether connected to specific in-person protests (#MarchForOurLives; #MarchForScience; #WomensMarch), consumer boycotts (#DeleteUber; #NotBuyingIt), social commentary (#OscarsSoWhite), fundraising (#IceBucketChallenge), humanitarian efforts (#BringBackOurGirls), or social justice campaigns (#OwnVoices), Twitter has become a vital tool for activism and social commentary. Unsurprisingly, academic studies of hashtag activism campaigns have likewise been on the rise as scholars grapple with the benefits and consequences of digital activism.

Shirley Jackson's Domesticities

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, August 31, 2018

Through her short career, Shirley Jackson wrote about about haunted houses, dysfunctional families, wayward children, attempts at maintaining a sane work-life balance, as well as restricted, doomed women in a period when Americans were constantly reminded of their civic duties to manage and maintain clean, comfortable, ‘normal’ domestic spaces. But as evidenced by letters from her fans, Shirley Jackson’s approach to domesticity opened up the possibility for something different, something more for women who felt trapped by their home lives.

Sunday, July 1, 2018

On the Western’s frontier, citizens and sociopaths abound—lawmen and outlaws, gamblers and gunmen, cavalry wives and soiled doves, the Indian chiefs and buffalo scouts.  How do these figures—materially or metaphorically—shape the creation, delivery and reception of the American West in film? The "good" citizen in a Western may seem easy to define, but when do some portrayals of citizenship succeed, inspiring audiences, while others backfire?  When might the actions of sociopaths be laudable?

Saturday, September 1, 2018

The ongoing comparison of the current administration to the Nixon administration calls for a reexamination of the scandal that brought down the latter. Befitting NeMLA’s conference location, this panel seeks to reexamine classic and contemporary depictions of Watergate in order to illuminate the scandal’s connections between literature, film and American politics and culture from the seventies to the present. Accordingly, this panel seeks readings of Watergate, past and present, as depicted in film, literature and culture. Readings can also reexamine Watergate as a moment in American cultural memory and its contemporary ramifications.

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 14, 2018

This panel examines the role of avant-garde women in confronting models of gender, domesticity and political practices safeguarded by patriarchal society. From the margins of vanguardism women effectively engaged in syndicalist and anarchist movements that reacted to state politics, while urging the importance of launching social reforms and radical art. This panel will thus provide an overview of artists who participated in a variety of experimental trends such as Cubism, Futurism, Expressionism, Imagism, Vorticism, Dadaism and Surrealism, among others.

Marginalized Style: Studying Fashion from Below to Promote Liberation

 

In Beyonce Knowles-Carter’s 2016 single “Formation,” the artist highlights her southern, black heritage to the black diasporic history that went into the making of her racial and ethnic background. As Beyonce proudly announces her racial identity, in the same stanza, she articulates that identity through the lens of fashion. She feels “so reckless when I rock my Givenchy dress (stylin')/ I'm so possessive so I rock his Roc necklaces.” The references to the French designer Givenchy and her husband’s jewelry collection demonstrates how Beyonce frames her understanding of her black heritage through her attire.

 The Doctorate in Linguistic, Literary and Intercultural Studies in European and extra-European Perspectives of the University of Milan is pleased to announce the organization of the Sc[Arti] conference to be held at the University of Milan on 7, 8 and 9 November 2018.  Flotsam does not exist in itself: there are no concepts nor entities that intrinsically possess this connotation. Rather, "flotsam" is the residue of a selection process based on shared convictions and conventions, which takes place in time and space according to individual and community dynamics.
