In the guise of her narrator in A Room of One’s Own (1928), Virginia Woolf wittily ponders the material foundations of the equality of the sexes:
"My aunt, Mary Beton, I must tell you, died by a fall from her horse when she was riding out to take the air in Bombay. The news of my legacy reached me one night about the same time that the act was passed that gave votes to women. A solicitor’s letter fell into the post-box and when I opened it I found that she had left me five hundred pounds a year for ever. Of the two – the vote and the money – the money, I own, seemed infinitely the more important" (Woolf 1945: 38-39).
In 1928, the actors Hilton Edwards and Micheál macLiammóir founded the Dublin Gate Theatre, renowned for producing modernist plays and employing avant-garde staging techniques largely unknown to Irish audiences. Edwards and macLiammóir embraced transnational perspectives on identity and theatre and questioned the homogenisation of national identities and cultural forms of expression during Ireland’s anxious first post-independence decades, which were marked by censorship, cultural isolation and the promotion of state-approved literature.

CFP: Designing, Teaching, Leading, & Theorizing Out-of-the-Box Student Travel (Domestic or Int’l; Edited Collection)
We seek essays of 3,000-5,000 words for an edited collection that explores unique and out-of-the-box faculty-led student travel, whether abroad or domestically. This book intends to argue for unique and innovative forms of undergraduate student travel, travel that eschews the sadly ubiquitous pre-packaged and overpriced program. We anticipate having three major sections: articles exploring the a) theory, b) implementation, and c) teaching (both in and outside the classroom, depending) of such journeys.

Call for Papers
Music and comics have had a connection right from the start, with the title of the seminal newspaper strip Hogan’s Alley taken from a popular song by Edward Harrigan. As the 20th Century progressed these two media flirted with each other for inspiration and style, from Marvel comics based on the rock band KISS, to Duran Duran taking their name from Barbarella. Back room printing presses in the 60s and 70s saw the gig flyer and alternative comix emerge side by side, and comic creators from Alan Moore to Richard McGuire have been inspired by music in the creation of their long (play) narratives.
The International Journal of James Bond Studies is now accepting submissions for Volume 2.

If, as the current SAAS conference theme, “The Image and the Word”, suggests, “[o]ur 21st century stands under the aegis of the image” (Boletin 27), then the most significant guiding cultural image of twenty-first century America has to be the hauntingly repetitive film of domestic passenger jets colliding with the physical embodiment of twentieth-century US power, the Twin Towers of the World Trade Centre.

This panel seeks contributions interested in exploring the cultural and material conditions that have motivated the “affective turn” within contemporary literary production and critique. How are contemporary novelists creating works that imagine artistic spaces “beyond postmodernism,” and what is the role of feeling within our understanding of these spaces?
