We are seeking completed submissions for an edited volume that interrogates representations of child and youth agency in fantasy.  Our collection Walking in Other Worlds: Fantastical Journeys of Children’s Agency explores child and youth agency in the context of fantasy popular cultural forms.  These sources of analyses may include television, cartoons, films, novels, toys, comic books/graphic novels, advertising, storytelling/folklore, fashion, art, video games, etc.  An academic publisher is connected to this project.

Representations of children’s agency in fantasy can be analyzed from a variety of grounding points.  For example, chapters might consider the intersection of agency and:

In her groundbreaking book titled Women in the Nineteenth Century, Margaret Fuller suggests a remedy for the degradation of work for women stating, “Women are the best helpers of one another” (117). Fuller’s statement has reflections in many works written at the end of the nineteenth century such as Elizabeth Stuart Phelps, The Silent Partner (1871),  Alcott’s Work (18739, and Blake’s Fettered for Life (1874) all of which focus on sisterhood, solidarity, and feminine bond among women across class, race, and nationality as a survival mechanism within capitalist economy.

CALL FOR PAPERS

Everything Old Is New Again:

Adapting the Classics in Contemporary Young Adult Novels

“An adaptation is not vampiric: it does not draw the life-blood from its source and leave it dying or dead, nor is it paler than the adapted work. It may, on the contrary, keep that prior work alive, giving it an afterlife it would never have had otherwise” (Linda Hutcheon, A Theory of Adaptation, 2006).

Writing Race, Class, and Gender in the Anthropocene

ASLE Biennial Conference / UC Davis / June 26-30, 2019
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, August 30, 2018

We are living in the Anthropocene, a geological epoch in which we wield power over the entire planet. But who, exactly, is the “we” in that sentence? As an imaginary, the Anthropocene allows “us” to understand “ourselves” as members of a species that is transforming “our” planet. As a material phenomenon, however, the Anthropocene divides “us” into disparate groups—whites and people of color, upper classes and working classes, men and women, citizens and refugees. How, in Bruno Latour’s terms, can we track the translations between nonhumans and humans? How, from Dipesh Chakrabarty’s perspective, can we straddle the thought rifts between the planetary and the global?

Teaching Terrorism: Global (Ethno)Nationalisms and the Geo-Politics of Terror

Sunday, September 30, 2018

 

This roundtable will discuss practices of teaching the literary-cultural portrayal of modern global (ethno)nationalisms and the concurrent rise and proliferation of terrorism as well as the role that the “terror threat” plays in contemporary reactionary politics and policies. Our focus will be on the teaching of texts—both literary and cultural--written not by mainstream western authors and theorists, but by non-Western/diasporic writers and commentators so as to foreground the perspective of the Western Other(s).

Classical Greek Female Archetypes in Latin American Literature

updated: 
Friday, August 24, 2018 - 12:33pm
NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

Latin American poets, dramatists, and narrators, especially female ones, have appropriated the classical Greek heroines (Antigone, Clytemnestra, Medea, etc.) and adapted them to a Latin American social and political context to protest government violence and abuse, machismo and the victimization of women, and the male-female love relationship, among other themes. This panel will examine these works and see how classical Greek heroines have been transfigured and remodeled to fit a Latin American context.
Latin America has always been characterized by a dialectic of tradition and innovation. Revisiting and reconfiguring the classics has been a technique to elude censorship and address sensitive issues. This is an area that deserves further study.
