Friday, June 1, 2018

Once considered a fringe movement, neoliberalism has steadily become a central tenet of American life. Neoliberal thought subsequently spread across the globe in a variety of forms (via channels including Hollywood and regulatory bodies such as the International Monetary Fund). Promises of privatization today trump collective action in virtually every aspect of life. This epistemic shift can be felt far and wide, from politicians to postmodern theorists. This panel will investigate symptoms of – and responses to – this shift in the areas of literature and media studies. Given this year’s South Atlantic Modern Language Association conference theme (Nov.

Nabokov and Dreams

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 15, 2018

The International Vladimir Nabokov Society is soliciting proposals on the subject of 'Nabokov and Dreams' for its guaranteed MLA Panel at the 2019 Modern Language Association Conference, which will take place in Chicago on January 3rd to 6th 2019.

In the light of the recent publication with Princeton University Press of Nabokov's Insomniac Dreams, this is a particularly timely topic. But dreams are an important theme and device in Nabokov's writing more broadly. Proposals are therefore invited which may deal with any aspect of dreams and the unconscious throughout Nabokov's writing, or indeed with the work of art as a dream. It may also explore the relationship of Nabokov's treatment of dreams to that in other writers.

ReFocus: The Films of João Pedro Rodrigues & João Rui Guerra da Mata

 

With a career that spans over twenty years, João Pedro Rodrigues and João Rui Guerra da Mata are one of the most creative duos in contemporary filmmaking working within the context of Portuguese cinema. Acknowledged by several film festivals (Cannes, Indie Lisboa, Locarno, New York) as major Portuguese directors, and by the Harvard Film Archive as creators whose works “reflect the multifarious history of film, from classic genres to experimental film”, both filmmakers have contributed to the growing interest in Portuguese cinema.

Douglas Mao and Rebecca Walkowitz's field-defining article, "The New Modernist Studies," turns ten in 2018. Despite the fact that the article takes up new media as a key topic, and although it was published just after ground-breaking work in the "visual turn" of literary studies by Mary Lou Emery (Modernism, the Visual, and Caribbean Literature, 2007), W.J.T. Mitchell (Picture Theory, 2005), Michael North (Camera Works, 2005), and Mark Wollaeger (Modernism, Media, and Propaganda, 2006), theories and discussions of global modernism have since focused considerably more energy on modernism's geographic and temporal dimensions than its relation to the graphic.

In December 2012, a young woman named Jyoti Singh was raped in New Delhi while returning home after watching a film with her friend. The incident quickly became a sensational news story in both national and international media, leading to an unprecedented amount of popular protests in New Delhi and other Indian cities. To be precise, the Jyoti Singh Rape Case proved to be a watershed moment in the history of the contemporary gendered mobilizations in India, which unleashed a series of questions for the Indian women’s movement.

Oxford Research in English, Issue 7: Craft

 

“In my craft or sullen art” -Dylan Thomas

 

Thomas is one in a long line who self-reflexively meditates on his own work. Indeed, a writer’s craft has been the topic of much discussion both by critics and by authors themselves, considering the interplay between a writer’s natural ability and her tendency to consciously create, between the ingenuity of her ideas and the discipline of putting them into practice. In doing so, Thomas, along with others, bring to the forefront an epistemological question: Is ‘crafting’ in opposition to art?

===============================================

Call for Contributions

===============================================

 

Deadline for proposals: 9th April 2018

The editors welcome abstracts for chapters in a forthcoming Routledge edited volume entitled Gender in Music Production. The scope for contributions are listed below.
