For a work of contemporary fantasy literature to be compared with those of J. R. R. Tolkien can be either compliment or condemnation; the juxtaposition might suggest a major, original contribution to the genre or imply a work is merely derivative. Yet if Tolkien had one of the first words on fantasy and medievalism he did not have the last. Author Steven Erikson recently described himself and other writers of epic fantasy as "post-Tolkien" in The New York Review of Science Fiction and lamented the tendency of some scholars to not realise that "we've moved on." This panel seeks papers which explore the ways in which twenty-first century fantasy literature deploys 'the medieval' with all its relics, forms and incarnations.

A literary essay on Franz Kafka's masterpiece " The Metamorphosis" in which there exist various elements of different literary schools like Expressionism and Absurdism, focusing on one major conflict of the story involving the main character and I have made an effort to find the reason. It is a 630-word literary essay, including a very short synopsis as well.

This panel strives to contextualize this history of mandatory military service by examining media representations of the draft. 2013 marks the 40th anniversary of the official end of the longest extended period of military conscription in American history, essentially running from 1940 to 1973. The panel hopes to consider issues of propaganda, subversion, nationalism, gender, race, sexuality, religion, and/or class identity as well as broader national narratives of citizen soldiery. I welcome research related to various forms of media – including but not limited to film, radio, television, comics, and videogames – from both the period of the draft as well as media showing retrospective depictions.
