CFP: Edited Collection on Masculinity and Gender in Sons of Anarchy

Editor: Susan Fanetti, California State University, Sacramento

 

Through its seven-season run, from 2008-2014, Sons of Anarchy celebrated and contemplated the world of outlaw bikers and became a cultural phenomenon in its own right. Creator and showrunner Kurt Sutter’s modern-day retelling of Hamlet became and continues to be the highest-rated show in FX’s network history, and for that achievement, Sutter was, in later seasons, granted unprecedented leeway to tell his story in his way.

Avid comic book fans sat appalled in theatres as Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel reached the climax of the film in which Superman kills his enemy Zod. Snyder’s film raises the question of whether this killing and the death of Zod could actually fit with Superman’s traditional moral compass. From Man of Steel to the CW’s Arrow and Flash series to the Avengers franchise, comic book characters are facing new ethical developments in their rejuvenation that both encompass and go beyond the idea of killing one’s enemy.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

For a long time now, Canadian poets (most notably bpNichol, but there are many others) have been credited with making significant initiatory experiments in the fields we now call electronic literature and digital poetics, but there has been relatively little work done examining what precisely constitutes a Canadian digital poetics, what kinds of writing constitute the genre, and what new reading practices are invited by these new projects in digital poetics. This panel looks at the emerging field of Canadian digital poetics and asks two primary questions: what is the role of a national literature in the increasingly boundary-less world of electronic literature? and, how do Canadian digital poetics change the way that we read and engage with these texts?
