The British Association for American Studies (BAAS) welcomes papers for its annual Postgraduate Conference, to be held in the Centre for American Studies at the University of Leicester on 24 November 2012. The keynote speaker will be Professor Brian Ward from the University of Manchester.
This panel poses methodological questions about the resurgence of interest in early film history by interrogating the thematic of time travel in silent cinema. The emergence of cinema itself constitutes a form of time travel, at once "mummifying" contingent moments and making them portable for reenactment in the present, and inventing parallel futures and histories by innovating new cinematic techniques (stop-motion photography, trick splices, enlargements of miniature objects, color tinting and toning, undercranking, smoke and mirrors, etc).

Call for Chapter Submissions – Representations of Internarrative Identity
This book is a two volume series of essays telling stories of the ways in which music has propelled resistance and revolutionary movements in the United States and around the world.
In the present paper, I will examine the metaphors in Sylvia Plath's poem 'Lady Lazarus'. My attempt is to analyse the poems applying the Cognitive Metaphor theory as expounded by Lakoff and Turner in 'More Than Cool Reason' (1989) and by Semino in 'Language and World Creation in Poems and other Texts' (1997). I hope to reveal the potential schema-refreshing quality of the novel metaphors that enrich Plath's poems.
I hope to show how schema approach and metaphor analyses can give a fresh perspective to the reading of Plath's poetry.

Celebrating Popular/American Culture(s) in a Global Context
2013 marks the 350th anniversary of the theatrical debut of one of English drama's most important writers: John Dryden. While changes in taste, morals, and politics led to the neglect of Dryden's dramatic works in subsequent centuries, his plays were among the most popular and influential on the Restoration and early eighteenth-century stage. This session seeks papers that explore any aspect of Dryden's theatrical works, particularly as it relates to the development of dramatic genres, aesthetics, or theater history, in the seventeenth- and eighteenth-centuries or beyond.
Please submit paper proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 15.
