The Empire definitely wrote back, often with defiance, mockery, and wit.

As Bill Ashcroft summarizes of postcolonial criticism, “this was a new way of reading those literatures that emphasized their transformative power as well as their difference.”

I am seeking papers on satirical material, in all media, which engage with postcolonial issues.

UPDATED and EXPANDED CFP - Veterans Studies is a growing field of research that addresses the significant impact of military personnel transitioning from active duty to civilian life. This session invites papers that explore any aspect of military service in literature, including those that reflect the conference theme of “Send in the Clowns” or humor. Outside the trauma of military existence is the rich sense of community that exists in the humorous aspects of providing service to one’s country. These stories and experiences have provided mass media laughs in periodicals like Reader’s Digest and in television shows like Gomer Pyle and Mash. No tragedy is complete without inferences of comedy.

Ages and Stages: Women in the Academy, Revisted

Monday, September 30, 2019

Although much has changed in the academy in recent decades, many struggles related to gender and the “traditional notions” of the roles women fulfill and the roles men fulfill in the academy have remained strikingly rigid, to the detriment of individuals as well as to the collective institution. Women still bear a service burden disproportionate to that of their male colleagues. Women in the academy still struggle with childbearing and child rearing choices that men in the academy do not face in the same way. Women still face sexism and sexual harassment that their male counterparts escape. For women of color, the burdens are magnified.

The Future of Film: Will Television Kill the Cinema Star?

Monday, September 30, 2019

This roundtable explores the collapsing of the separate media concepts of film and television as "TV" becomes more filmic than film, more cinematic than movies themselves.  We are witnessing the confluence of production values, means of production, narrative form and style, and the ways in which content is consumed, reviewed, funded, and awarded. The two media have seemingly become synchronous, simultaneous and potentially interchangeable.  This Roundtable will focus on film, television, and streaming content, and the places that they will inhabit and occupy in the future of visual media and the cultural imagination.

“What I liked were: absurd paintings, pictures over doorways, stage sets, carnival backdrops, billboards, bright-colored prints, old-fashioned literature, church Latin, erotic books full of misspellings, the kind of novels our grandmothers read, fairy tales, little children’s books, old operas, silly old songs, the naïve rhythms of country rimes,” Arthur Rimbaud, The Alchemy of the Word (1873).
