[UPDATE] CFP: Re-engaging Charles Brockden Brown

updated: 
Tuesday, July 30, 2013 - 10:55am
Michael Blouin / Milligan College

This panel at the 2014 NeMLA conference seeks to re-engage with Charles Brockden Brown, one of America's earliest novelists and a literary icon in Pennsylvania. As a practitioner of experimental writing that anticipates much of post-structural and post-colonial thought, Brown forces us to question the contemporary status of these critical frameworks. His shift toward conservatism, his later interrogations of History, and his importance as a particularly 'American' voice (praised by Hawthorne and Poe alike) makes Brown a figure worthy of continued study. Please submit brief 250 - 500 word abstract to Michael Blouin at MJBlouin@milligan.edu by no later than September 30th, 2013.

2014 will mark ten years since the final episode of Sex and the City (HBO 1998-2004) was broadcast. During the programme's six seasons, and throughout the decade following its finale, Sex and the City has continued to be recognised as one of the most contentious and cherished series in recent television history, having tapped into a zeitgeist consumed by postfeminism to become a cultural touchstone. In a July 2013 New Yorker article, Emily Nussbaum lamented the manner in which the show has been 'downgraded to a 'guilty pleasure'' by some, while male-centred series are readily revered, reminding readers that this was 'sharp, iconoclastic television.
