“Opening Doors:Creating Opportunities for Difficult Conversations”

March 9, 2019

Starting conversations on difficult topics can seem insurmountable at times. The 2019 GSE Conference focuses on how texts (books, tv shows, films, social media, etc.) open the door to difficult conversations, offering the opportunity for enlightenment and understanding in a time seemingly bereft of both.

We welcome papers exploring the interpretive possibilities generated by queer and gender-switched casting in web series and other digitally-native media adaptations of Shakespeare’s plays. By shifting the means of production and distribution beyond traditional mainstream media channels, new digital platforms like YouTube, Tumblr, and Netflix offer a creative process through which more people can adapt Shakespeare in their own image.

COMICS/FANDOM

University of Cologne, 28/03/2019 – 29/03/2019

 

Considering how crucially comic book marketing depends on loyal customers, especially fans, and to how great an extent the ever-expanding franchises surrounding Marvel’s or DC’s comic worlds rely on user participation and fandom, it seems striking that the connection between Comics Studies and Fan Studies has hardly been explored in any great detail so far.

Marginalized Style: Studying Fashion from Below to Promote Liberation

 

In Beyonce Knowles-Carter’s 2016 single “Formation,” the artist highlights her southern, black heritage to the black diasporic history that went into the making of her racial and ethnic background. As Beyonce proudly announces her racial identity, in the same stanza, she articulates that identity through the lens of fashion. She feels “so reckless when I rock my Givenchy dress (stylin')/ I'm so possessive so I rock his Roc necklaces.” The references to the French designer Givenchy and her husband’s jewelry collection demonstrates how Beyonce frames her understanding of her black heritage through her attire.

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, December 15, 2018

The conference hopes to broaden the scope of American literature, opening it to more complex geographies, and to a variety of genres and media. The impetus comes partly from a survey of what is currently in the field: it is impossible to read the work of Toni Morrison and Teju Cole, Bei Dao and Rita Dove, Tony Kushner and Lynn Nottage, Joan Didion and Ta-Nehisi Coates without seeing that, for all these authors, the reference frame is no longer simply the United States, but a larger, looser, more contextually varied set of coordinates, populated by laboring bodies, migrating faiths, generational sagas, memories of war, as well as the accents of unforgotten tongues, the taste and smell of beloved foods and spices.

The Internet has been a source of fascination for many horror and dark fantasy films, from Pulse to Unfriended, but recently films such as Slender Man, TV shows such as Channel Zero, and stories such as Neil Gaiman’s “Ghosts in the Machines” have begun featuring characters and stories that don’t just take inspiration from online spaces, but actually trace their origins there.

Seminar: From Life to Afterlives: Creative Re-presentation in the Premodern World

updated: 
Wednesday, October 10, 2018 - 4:01pm
Sewanee Medieval Colloquium
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, November 21, 2018

Organizer: Alison Frazier, University of Texas, Austin

DESCRIPTION:

Across the pre-modern world, biography in all media focused largely on rulers, warrior heroes, and spiritual adepts. Such figures, historical or not, were understood to embody virtues worth preserving, admiring and, on occasion, imitating. Thus, the global phenomena of afterlives: creative re-presentations that aimed to secure the posthumous life, or life-effect, of the hero. The topic of afterlives encourages pursuit of a global and comparative pre-modernity that remains generously local, conceptually and theoretically astute, and disciplinarily diverse.

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, October 31, 2018

Three decades after his death in 1989, Samuel Beckett remains one of the most influential figures in modern and contemporary drama. This panel seeks to examine plays written “after Beckett”: that is, plays written since 1989 which stage an intertextual conversation with one or more of Beckett’s plays. I will be presenting a paper on Antoinette Nwandu’s 2017 play Pass Over. I am looking for two additional papers to complete the panel.

Byron Caminero-Santangelo and Garth A. Myers describe peripheral African environments as “Environment at the Margins” in the book of the same title. The field of postcolonial ecocriticism, which has been flourishing over the past one decade, is now widely perceived to be an interdisciplinary, transnational, and comparative field of inquiry as it recognizes the complexities of interdisciplinary dialogues and critiques a universalizing or homogenizing impulse of capitalism, colonialism, and imperialism.
