Intellettuale editore, curatore editoriale, consulente, editor: sono molti i nomi con cui viene indicato il ruolo di chi trasforma il manoscritto nel prodotto editoriale vero e proprio, il libro. Questa incertezza terminologica registra i cambiamenti nel lavoro editoriale dal Dopoguerra a oggi e manifesta la permeabilità di un ruolo, quello dell'editor, svolto in tempi e modi diversi da gran parte degli intellettuali italiani del Novecento.

Call For Papers: Fire, Flames and Ashes: New Perspectives on Rammstein
As Alicia Ostriker demonstrates in her final chapter of Stealing the Language, revisionist mythology is a practice that extends across cultures and centuries. In late 20th century America, second wave feminists seized upon this strategy as they sought to locate and emphasize women's roles in history, literature, mythology and sacred traditions. In particular, many feminists utilized the practice of revisionism as a means of coming to terms with the sacred and of carving out a place in both traditional and non-traditional religions for a women-centered spirituality. This panel focuses on feminist revisions of the sacred in 20th century American literature.

CFP: Sentimentalism and the Senses
C19 Conference, Society of Nineteenth-Century Americanists, Berkeley, CA, April 12-15th, 2012
Spies, allegations of spying, voyeurism, double agents, and the buying, trading, and coveting of intelligence abounds in the work of the former royal spy, Aphra Behn. Both morally dubious and exceptionally effective, spies are deployed, in disguise or in the person of a bosom friend, as a means to win battles of love and war. The Aphra Behn Society invites paper proposals on espionage, in all its permutations, in women's literature and art, 1660-1830. How do the women of this period investigate and participate in various forms of espionage? How do their texts explore the uses of espionage, and anxieties over the potential infiltration of the spy into private spaces, and the communication of intelligence to external or hostile parties?
Television and comics serials get 'rebooted' and filmic versions of classics pile up in seemingly endless succession. Re-adaptations must acknowledge the visual heritage of the adaptations that came before them, while also asserting some sort of uniqueness - a return to the source text or a resituating in time and space: an 'update.' This panel will interrogate the need for such re-imaginings. What makes a character or world ripe for re-envisioning, and what shapes the way that re-envisioning occurs?

This panel seeks papers about modernist and/or postmodernist film versions or adaptations of Shakespearean or Renaissance plays.
