William Shakespeare was Emily Dickinson’s favorite writer and her letters abound with references to him and his works. Dickinson’s allusions to Shakespeare’s writings evidence his pervasive presence in her life but also signal his ubiquitous place in her culture.

In collaboration with the Emily Dickinson Museum, the 2020 EDIS Annual Meeting will be held July 31 to August 1 in Amherst. This year’s focus is Dickinson’s great love of Shakespeare and this theme will shape the usual features of our Annual Meetings such as reading groups, tours of the Dickinson Museum, performances, readings, seminar-style discussions, and talks.

Videogames are a powerful storytelling medium—but what are the stories we tell about videogames, with videogames, around videogames?

While there is an extensive body of scholarship on the way that videogames create worlds, construct characters, and explore themes, there has been almost no scholarship on the representation of videogames in literary texts.

AAIS-AATI 2020 "1950-2020: Cesare Pavese 70 Years After His Death. New Perspectives of Studies"

Cesare Pavese left an unforgettable mark on Twentieth century Italian culture. His multifaceted intellectual personality took many shapes. He was a poet, a translator, a member of the Einaudi publishing house, a novelist: in short, he was a complete intellectual. His literary production was characterized by an extraordinary open-mindedness: he was the first to translate into Italian the American authors who influenced him; with "Dialoghi con Leucò" he reinterpreted classical mythology; he was interested in cinema. Seventy years after his death, what methodologies can we employ to study his work? How  can we interpret his open-mindedness, based on the cultural context of the first half of the Twentieth century and looking at the present time?

Out of the Classroom and into the Wild: Ecopedagogies for the Anthropocene

We boast of our system of education, but why stop at schoolmasters and schoolhouses? We are all schoolmasters, and our schoolhouse is the universe. To attend chiefly to the desk or schoolhouse while we neglect the scenery in which it is placed is absurd. If we do not look out we shall find our schoolhouse standing in a cow-yard at last. ---Henry David Thoreau, “Huckleberries”

From Ragnarok to Revelation, from the utopian proposals of Plato’s Republic to the dystopian vision of Huxley’s Brave New World, a prominent concern of human language and literature has always been to describe possible futures. Some of these visions of the future are cataclysmic, looking forward to a time when Heaven—or Mother Earth—will wipe the slate clean; others propose a more optimistic vision of progress. Recent films such as Interstellar or Tomorrowland have taken a middle way, suggesting that although humanity has recently fallen short of its promise, there still remains hope that we will be able to pull ourselves up by our own bootstraps.

As a flagship title for Sony’s Playstation console, Final Fantasy VII was one of the first high-profile games to blend cinematic narrative with deep/immersive gameplay.  Thus, the editors of Final Fantasy VII at 25, an upcoming title in McFarland's Studies in Gaming series, are seeking contributions to a collection which will examine the storytelling of the game, the many themes and motifs expressed, and how various mechanics all relate to the player experience.

Most second-hand bookstores have one or two shelves for books that have been categorized as “Conspiracy Theories.” Such books are deemed too inaccurate to count as “History,” too unacademic to qualify as “Sociology,” or too fringe to be shelved as “Politics.” The “Conspiracy Theories” shelf is a tangible reminder of conspiracism’s epistemological status as “stigmatized knowledge” (Barkun, 2003).
