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.

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.

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.

Why should I be studying for a future that soon may be no more, when no one is doing anything to save that future? And what is the point of learning facts when the most important facts clearly means nothing to our society?

Eudora Welty used dialect in her stories to reproduce the full performance of power and identity associated with language. Of her early stories, Welty herself said in 1982, "I love to write dialogue but it’s very hard to prune it and make it sharp and make it advance the plot and reveal the characters—both characters—the one listening and the one talking."

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?
