International Conference “Historical Fiction, Fictional History, and Historical Reality”Call for Papers FCSH-Universidade Nova de LisboaLisbon, Portugal 6-8 March 2020 Organised by CETAPS and CHAM The most pellucid pearls of historical narrative are often fount in fiction, long a major component of historical understanding. More people apprehend the past through historical novels, from Walter Scott to Jean Plaidy, than through any formal history.David Lowenthal, The Past is a Foreign Country (1985) 224 Historical fiction has been riding a crest of popularity, and, to a certain degree, it was that popularity that motivated (or forced) the academic study of the genre.
Call for papers (edited volume):
Teaching Nabokov’s Lolita in the #MeToo Era
Editor: Dr. Elena Rakhimova-Sommers
The volume seeks essays that explore the experience of teaching Lolita in the #MeToo Era.
The two world wars of the first half of the twentieth century, World War I (1914-1918) and World War II (1939 - 1945), wrought extraordinary levels of destruction. Much of the artistic production during the period reflected grim and complicated realities, while a number of works of art of the post-war period played a role in the memorialization of the wars or served as critical commentary on the wars’ historical legacies. We are calling for article proposals that explore how art expressed the collective experience and memory of these two monumentally important global conflagrations and of conflicts that occurred in the interwar years.

A Critical Companion to Robert Zemeckis
edited by Adam Barkman and Antonio Sanna
Part of the Critical Companion to Popular Directors series.
In “The Effects of Superhero Sagas on Our Gendered Selves,” Elizabeth Behm-Morawitz and Hillary Pennell suggest that superheroes are most often represented across U.S. popular culture texts as “super gendered" in ways that impact how we as a culture “construct gender-related identities, attitudes, and beliefs” by affirming gender norms. While there has been much scholarly analysis of gender identity, presentation, and performance in relation to female superheroes, less critical attention has been paid to examining the cultural function of male superheroes in either affirming or challenging hegemonic masculinity.
This panel explores the interconnection of avant-garde humor with forms of political action that defied conventional art and lifestyles. The significance of the comical aspect centers on a greater understanding of experimental practices as cases that unsettle the establishment. Literally meaning “advance guard” in French, the term holds a military sense that applies to artists and works characterized by their combative nature and their tendency to question the acceptability of norms and traditional aesthetic genres. Avant-garde artists made use of humor as a political weapon that destabilized the status quo by challenging bourgeois values and promoting radical reforms on a sociocultural level.
