Evolving Stories

GradCATS / De Montfort University
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 10, 2017

Stories are fluid and mutable, forever in a state of flux, and gradually developing according to their shifting surroundings. While certain features of a story endure, other elements undergo changes. Indeed, in their homology between biological and cultural adaptation, Gary Bortolotti and Linda Hutcheon (2007) highlight the importance of persistence and diversity, as persistent and diverse replicators and narratives thrive in biology and culture respectively. Through exploring the persistent elements of a story, we can examine universal themes, timeless symbols and archetypal characters. Meanwhile, the areas of diversity offer insight into the plethora of contextual components framing a story.

Queer Per Verse (MLA 2018)

CFP for MLA 2018 (NYC January 4-7)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 10, 2017

Two decades after the groundbreaking 1997 essay collection Novel Gazing: Queer Readings in Fiction, edited by Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, no comparable volume of theoretical engagements with poetry has appeared. This is not because of a lack of significant, queer critical accounts of poetry, then or now. Yet this relatively small body of work in queer poetics has emerged piecemeal, rather than as part of a sustained, collective effort to consolidate a line of inquiry and further a dialogue between queer and poetic theories.
