Horror films have long held a place in cinematic history as an expression of the monstrous, the un-nameable, and the unknown. They are a powerful point of catharsis in which viewers see their deepest fears played out onscreen, whether the threat is fully embodied or less concretely defined. As a result, grief and loss have always figured heavily in this genre.

Environment is a fluid, elastic word. After combing the lengthy list of the many meanings of environment in a trusty Merriam Webster dictionary, one arrives at the French roots of the term: that which surrounds. The Graduate Student Association of the American Culture Studies Program at Bowling Green State University invites scholars to an interdisciplinary symposium focused on exploring the multilayered meanings of the term environment using the broadest definition of the term as a common ground for meeting and commingling.

Archival practices in the 20th and early-21st century have been understood in a variety of ways. For some, “artists started to rely on the topos of the archive to express their unease about canonic systems for the production of knowledge” (Giannachi, 2016: 131). For others, a reviewing of the archive as a power structure and the blind spots, or silences, it produced was in order (Michel-Rolph Trouillot, 1995: 53). For others still, this ‘archival turn’ grew out of a fascination with historiography and with memory (Spieker, 2008: 26), characteristic of postmodern societies. Two main theoretical frameworks have been consistently called forth in contemporary studies of the archive.

The Settings of Margaret Atwood

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

Margaret Atwood is a world-renowned Canadian writer. Her identity as a Canadian is important to her and is reflected in her work, especially her earlier work. However, she is a well-travelled person as well and her works don't all take place in Canada. Over the years, she has set her work in urban, suburban and rural locations around Canada but also in the Caribbean and, in The Handmaid's Tale, in the Boston area. This panel would look at Atwood's various settings. How does she use place to reflect or cause either the comfort or the alienation of her characters? Why did she choose to set her first dystopian novel in Cambridge rather than in her home city of Toronto?

The history of mankind/humanities is marked by intercultural contacts among different societies, be it in development contexts such as trades, business, religious encounters, diplomatic and academic exchanges, or be in conflictual contexts such as war incarceration, human trafficking, forced migration, and annexations.

Propelled by globalization, the first decades of the 21st century witness a growing trend of old (i.e. face to face interactions) and new (i.e. digital/online interactions) forms of intercultural contacts in both development and conflictual contexts. Intercultural contacts consist of an interplay of interlocutors’ interactions, languages, communications, behaviours, and emotions that are dynamic, non-linear, and emergent.

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.
