What do we want? A better world? A cleaner world? At this point, many of us might merely settle for a world that isn’t barrelling towards inevitable environmental destruction.  So, what do we want? Climate Action! What does climate action look like in the academy? It looks like the expansion of digital resources and the cultivation of better disposal and recycling habits on university campuses. It also looks like the cultivation of eco-critical theory and research. Earth is our home. It is the only habitable planet for us. Unfortunately, while it shows evidence of the brilliance of humanity, the state of the Earth also represents our greed and short-sightedness.

The Persuasive Power of Nostalgia: An Emerging Genre

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, November 10, 2019

Many scholars have examined the ways in which nostalgia has functioned and evolved throughout history from its clinical classification as a syndrome/disease to its romantic re-classification as the pursuit of a golden age. More recent literature has attempted to identify the different subcategories of nostalgia that have emerged within modernity and the extent to which it functions as both a spatial and temporal phenomenon.

Not Your Mother’s Bodice Rippers: The Romance Genre in the 21st Century

Editor: Susan Fanetti

 

 

The enduring stereotype of the romance novel is the dramatic cover depicting the bare-chested, Fabio-modeled “hero” holding the swooning “heroine” draped over his arm, her wild hair flowing and her bountiful pale breasts swelling from her torn dress. Hence the term “bodice-ripper.”

Since the affective turn in the early 1990s, the humanities and social sciences have witnessed a profound and renewed interest in how feelings operate; their relationship to both the human, the nonhuman (or more than human), and other feelings. As researchers, teachers and artists, we often struggle with the place and status of emotions in creative processes, institutions, the workplace, classrooms, and in our own research. How do we feel about all of this?

Washington Irving and the Theater (ALA 2020)

updated: 
Sunday, November 3, 2019 - 7:06am
The Washington Irving Society
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 15, 2020

The Washington Irving Society invites proposals for a panel connecting Washington Irving and his contemporaries to the theater. As a native New Yorker, Irving was a lifelong theater goer and even aspired to become a playwright while living abroad. His relationship with playwright John Howard Payne and Frankenstein author Mary Shelley, in fact, developed during this time in England when he attempted to write for the theater. As we continue to celebrate the 200th anniversary of The Sketch Book (1819-1820), stage performances of stories from the collection, such as “Rip Van Winkle” and “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” are welcomed, but we open the panel to stage productions of Irving and his other writing, too.

 

Washington Irving and Film (ALA 2020)

The Washington Irving Society
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 15, 2020

The Washington Irving Society invites proposals for any topic related to film adaptations of Irving’s biography and texts. Because we continue to celebrate the 200th anniversary of The Sketch Book (1819-1820), dramatizations of stories from the collection, such as “Rip Van Winkle,” “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” and the Christmas stories, are welcomed, but we open the panel to analyses of other texts and representations of Irving as well. From Joseph Jefferson (1829-1905) as Rip Van Winkle on the silent screen to Tim Burton’s Sleepy Hollow (1999) and the more recent television show “Sleepy Hollow” (2013-2017), interpretations of Irving vary dramatically, and we hope to explore what has entertained audiences for more than a century.

Horrifying Children: television, literature and popular culture from 1966-1998

There has been an explosion of interest in the impact of children’s television and literature of the late C20th. In particular, the 1970s and 1980s are seen as decades that shaped a great deal of our contemporary cultural landscape. Television of this period dominated the world of childhood entertainment, drawing freely upon literature and popular culture, and much of it continues to resonate powerfully with the generation of cultural producers (fiction writers, screenwriters, directors, musicians and artists) that grew up watching the weird, the eerie and the horrific.

Short-circuits and Fused Visions: The Works and Networks of Claude Pélieu/ “Courts-circuits et visions disjonctées : œuvre et réseaux de Claude Pélieu

Born in 1934 in the village of Beauchamp, near Pontoise (France), Claude Pélieu was an influential figure in a number of contemporary transatlantic artistic and literary scenes from the 1960s until his death in 2002, yet he remains relatively unknown and absent from historical narratives of the period. In the 1950s, he began drawing and experimenting with collage, and later studied painting in Fernand Leger’s atelier. He published his first poems in 1956 in the magazine Rendez-vous avec le sol, followed by further texts in 1959 in Henri Chopin’s Cinquième saison.
