The present pleasure,
By revolution low'ring, thus become
The opposite of itself
- Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra

If, in the near future, all data, movies, etc., were to become instantly available, if the delay were to become minimal so that the very notion of "searching for" (a book, a film …) were to lose meaning, would this instant availability not suffocate desire?
- Žižek

For its 2012 issue, Criterion (an undergraduate and master's level student journal) anticipates reserving space for up to four essays exploring issues that relate to transnational American studies. To provoke thoughts on this topic, Dr. Jared Hickman of Johns Hopkins University has provided a prompt, "(Meta) Critiques of 'Transnational American Studies'." Authors should not attempt to address all of the issues raised by Dr. Hickman; rather, Criterion hopes this prompt will serve as a springboard for creative and well-focused essays on relevant issues and texts.

Criterion seeks original, well-researched, and intellectually rigorous essays written from diverse critical perspectives and about texts from any time period or literary tradition. We encourage upper-division undergraduates and first- and second-year masters students to submit. Submissions are peer-reviewed by a selection board at BYU, and final decisions are made by the journal's two Editors-in-Chief in consultation with a faculty advisor. Essays may be submitted on a year-round basis, but Criterion is currently soliciting submissions for its 2012 issue, scheduled for publication in April of 2012. The submission deadline for the 2012 issue is 20 January 2012. Essays received after this deadline will be considered for the 2013 issue.

"If Percival Everett isn't already a household name, it's because people are more interested in politics than truth."—Madison Smartt Bell, author of The Washington Square Ensemble

The Percival Everett Society is sponsoring a panel on Everett's works at The 22nd Annual Mardi Gras Conference on the campus of Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, LA on February 16th and 17th, 2012.

The rise of the ecologically-oriented approaches to literature and the development of ecocriticism as a scholarly discipline in the 1970s did not remain very long the prerogative of the Anglo-American literature and scholarship. Other national literatures and literary studies have been rapidly developing their views on the connections between literature and ecology; these are oftem based on different premises and follow their own respective literary traditions.

Call for abstracts for edited collection, tentatively entitled 'Beyond Disney: Children's Films and Family Films in Global Cinema'

We are seeking contributions to a co-edited anthology which addresses global manifestations of children's films and family films outside the Disney milieu.

There have been many scholarly works which focus on the historical, commercial and textual aspects of Disney films, yet the children's films and family films produced elsewhere – whether in the Hollywood, European or other international cinemas – have been comparatively neglected.
