CFP: [Film] Japanese Horror Film Panel (SCMS 09-Tokyo)

Nick Giannini

I am looking for two papers on japanese/Asian horror cinema (contemporary
or classic) to round out a proposed panel at the Society for Cinema and
Media Studies (Inter)National Conference in Tokyo, Japan. The conference
is slated for May 21-24, 2009 at JOSAI INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY.
Professors, grad students, independent scholars are welcome to apply.
There is no overarching theme to the panel, save that it is devoted to the
Asian horror genre. At the moment, my co-panelists would need to submit
abstracts by the end of the month.

Just to play it safe, shall we say a CFP deadline of August 15, 2008.

CFP: [20th] Human Rights and Literature: Theory from African Perspective

updated: 
Sunday, August 3, 2008 - 2:32pm
Elizabeth Swanson Goldberg

We are seeking proposals for one essay on the subject of African
approaches to literature and human rights.

As evidenced by scholarly production, major conferences, and course
offerings, the interdisciplinary pairing of human rights and literature
has gained necessary momentum since 2001. Still, there are few book-
length studies to accompany and help define this growing field and none
that fully address the foundational issues of theorizing this new sub-
field. We have had initial interest from the University of Pennsylvania
Press Series in Human Rights and are seeking at least one essay on the
subject of African approaches to literature and human rights.
