CFP for the 2018 ACLA Panel: Tattoos as/in Literature: Beyond the Semiotic and the Bodily. After the “linguistic turn,” and at the intersection of (post)structuralism, deconstruction, and the evolving series of critical discourses on materiality, bodies, the non-human, theory and literary criticism have discovered a need to read beyond words and purely linguistic signification in general. Images and bodies appear no longer as limits of discourse, or as what needs to be translated into words, but as surfaces of signification in themselves. Derrida’s own spatial and visual experimentation in his writing pointed towards the need to consider the inseparable links between words, images, and bodies, not only in literature, but also in theory and philosophy.
The term ‘generation’ has played a formative role in literary histories of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries to articulate notions of evolution, rupture, and continuity. Its use is, however, not uncontested and has been the subject of intense scholarly scrutiny in literary studies and cultural memory studies over the last two decades. As Astrid Erll has noted, the concept of ‘generation’ is marked by two dimensions: generationality and genealogy. The first term indicates how generations define themselves or are defined on the basis of a shared ‘space of experience’ (Koselleck); the second term points at the relation generations maintain to what or who precedes them.

9th Sesquiannual University of Tulsa English Graduate Student Conference
Keynote Speaker: Dr. Emily Friedman, Auburn University
The Fairy Tales Area of the Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association seeks paper presentations on any topic involving fairy tales. While our interests are broad and inclusive, we invite papers that discuss fairy tales in contemporary popular culture (TV shows, movies, graphic novels, advertising, toys, video games, popular literature, etc), revisions and adaptations of fairy tales (including creative projects, such as poems, short fiction, TV shows), and approaches that consider the subversive nature of the fairy tale (such as subverted family values, queering the fairy tale, etc.).
Jordan Peele’s horror film, Get Out (2017) just became the highest-grossing debut project for a writer-director with an original screenplay (beating out the prior holder of that record, Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sánchez’s 1999 film The Blair Witch Project).
Get Out is not only an enormous box office success but it has won a critical acclaim unusual for a horror film—currently (as of early April, 2017) standing at 99% on Rotten Tomatoes with 225 positive and only one negative review.

INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON INCORPORATING FOLKLORE STUDIES IN MANAGEMENT PRACTICES

Prof. Sucheta Priyabadini
Venue: Campus 6 KIIT University
New Review of Film and Television Studies seeks contributions for a special issue on “Breath: Image and Sound.” Contributors are encouraged to consider, among other topics, the interplay between breath and particular media; phenomenologies or phenomenalities of breath and air; and breathing in different affective modes and genres. Possible research questions include, but are not limited to:
As Douglas Mao and Rebecca Walkowitz indicate in their article “The New Modernist Studies,” recent trends in modernist studies have operated a radical revision of the term “modernism,” moving away from the idea that modernism is confined to a single place (Europe, North America, and the West in general) or a single time (roughly 1890-1940). As the map of “transnational” and “global” modernisms expands, ever more attention has been given to new languages, phenomena of bilingualism and multilingualism, and translation as a fundamental practice in modernist writing (Yao, Rogers).
Anemoi is a new peer-reviewed undergraduate journal of pre-modern studies being published by students at New College of Florida in Sarasota. We are looking for submissions and team members. We aim to provide a voice and CV opportunities to undergraduates.
Submissions must handle a 'pre-modern' topic, which may range broadly from classics to early modern studies, and should be directed towards an audience not necessarily bringing with them a background in the field. Papers should explain particular terminology and essential background. We encourage papers under a range of interdisciplinary topics within these fields, including but not limited to music, history, theology, literature, drama, philosophy, art, language, and economics.
