This year’s MMLA Animals in Literature and Film panel invites papers engaging in tensions of “human” and “animal” found within a variety of ancient textualities related to the broad field of animal studies. In ancient Greek and Roman society, animals serve important roles, often as a medium in religion, as symbolic function in Greco-Roman mythology, and as poetic symbol in ancient oral tradition and later written literature. Often, animals are given titular roles, and they carry strong symbolic function in the narrative, whether the narrative is oral, written, or artistic.

ANZSA 2018 Panel CFP: “Lend thy serious hearing”: Irreverence and Play in Shakespeare Adaptations

Four hundred years after William Shakespeare’s death, his work continues to not only fill playhouses around the world, but be adapted for various forms of popular culture, including film, television, online video, and comics/graphic novels. These adaptations introduce a whole new generation of audiences to the work of Shakespeare, and are often fun, playful, engaging, and “irreverent, broadly allusive, and richly reimagined takes on their source material” (Cartelli and Rowe, New Wave Shakespeare on Screen, 2007, 1).

Polygraph 27—Call for Papers Special Issue: Neoliberalism and Social Reproduction Social reproduction, as both the material reproduction of the workforce and ideological interpellation of individuals into normative culture, remains crucial to contemporary Marxist and feminist critical thought. Whether Althusser's ideological state apparatuses, Foucault's theories of discipline and biopower, or Federici's analysis of invisible and unwaged domestic labor, critical theory has long attempted to name the mechanisms through which capitalist societies reproduce themselves.

The pairing of voodoo and literature causes one to immediately think of writers like Charles Chesnutt, Zora Neale Hurston, Ishmael Reed, Toni Cade Bambara, and Jewell Parker Rhodes, as these authors use conjure unequivocally within their literary works. However, voodoo flows more freely in the veins of popular culture than one may realize. Though Christian cultures have largely shunned voodoo as a practice, Western literature has used voodoo as sites of spectacles, moments of revenge, and performances of Africanness. In fact, western literature has a nuanced relationship with voodoo or voodoo aesthetics.
