Serial Novel(ty): The Evolution of the Novel in the Digital Age

Eager readers in days past would anxiously await the next novel installment to arrive via
newspaper or magazine, delaying (and perhaps heightening) the pleasure of the narrative world.
Today’s new media, including television, internet, and digital media, also rely on various forms
of serialization to deliver new texts with the click of a button. We are interested in exploring how
contemporary authors use serialized formats to reach their audiences, and how today’s forms of
serialization resemble, reaffirm, and reject the challenges and advantages of traditional
serialization.

CFP: [Collections] Global Encounters: Taiwan Literature vis-à-vis World Literatures

Monday, April 28, 2008 - 2:21pm
Bennett Fu

Globalization, a trend prevailing to the future development of Taiwan, has
tremendously transformed the vistas of political reforms, cultural
productions, and ethnic re-composition on the island. The globalized
landscape concurrently re-channels the visions of not only the local
residents, including indigenous indwellers and foreign settlers, but also
the international communities keeping an eye on the island’s route of
development. Such gradual but radical transformation, in many ways, has
encouraged the nation-state identity and identification to vacillate
between insularism and globalization. In this transitional state, Taiwan
can be regarded as a post-industrial, postmodern, or postcolonial cultural

Photography, Modernism, Feminism
 In her essay "From Clementina to Kasebier: The Photographic Attainment of
the ’Lady Amateur,’” art historian Carol Armstrong argues that
photographers such as Julia Margaret Cameron, Lady Hawarden Clementina, and
Gertrude Kasebier took astute advantage of photography's low place on art's
hierarchical scales to assert themselves as artists. The work of these
women, therefore, indirectly calls attention to the relationship between
photography and the emergence of feminism in the U.S. and Britain in the
nineteenth- and early twentieth- centuries. This panel seeks to bring
modernist literature composed by women into the relationship between
