The Brontë Society is delighted to announce that it is hosting a conference to celebrate the life and work of Anne Brontë in her bicentenary year. The conference, ‘I wished to tell the truth’: Anne Brontë at 200 will take place at the Crown Spa Hotel, Scarborough, UK, 4 -6 September 2020, and presents an ideal opportunity to challenge the long-held perception that the youngest Brontë sibling was the least talented, and lacked the genius of her sisters. With Anne Brontë’s marginalisation in mind, potential topics to be explored could include, but are not limited to, the following:
Relationship between life and art/ Realism and didacticism
Medieval English Theatre Conference
University of Wolverhampton Saturday, 4 April 2020
Consumption, Performance, and Early Theatre
This panel will address illustrative, pictorial, and digital treatments and adaptations of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. The novel has a 195-year history of illustration and depiction in a wide range of visual arts, media, and technologies—from the 1823 cover of Richard Brinsley Peake’s play Presumption to the first issue of the comic series Mary Shelley, Monster Hunter (February 2019). The novel’s “hyperadaptability” in visual form, to adopt Dennis Perry’s term, extends to a wide range of modes.

“Doing southern studies is unmasking and refusing the binary thinking--‘North’/‘South,’ nation/South, First World/Third World, self/other--that postcolonial studies has taught us is the most damaging rhetorical structure of empire. Doing southern studies is thinking geographically, thinking historically, thinking relationally, thinking about power, thinking about justice, thinking back.” --Scott Romaine & Jennifer Rae Greeson
Historical Horrors and the Horrors of History: 21st Century Screen Horror and the Historical Imagination
Editors Amanda Howell and Stephanie Green (School of Humanities, Languages, and Social Science, Griffith University, Australia) seek contributors to an anthology whose collective analysis will be directed to the question:
What can 21st century film and television tell us about the historical imagination of horror?
I am seeking 20 minute paper proposals for a panel that considers the various literary uses and conceptions of ghosts as a mode of memory, projection, history, trauma, and reconciliation/redemption. Part of the foundational premise of the ghost story is a disturbance in the present that comes from the past; an unsettling interaction between mind and matter, memory and perception, the living and the dead. All paper proposals that consider these aspects of ghost stories (as literature/writing) are welcome.
The Far West Popular Culture Association will be held on February 22-24, 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada, at the Palace Station Hotel/Casino.
Please send a 250 word abstract and a brief bio to:

The CFP for the Handbook of Research on Machine Ethics and Morality has been extended to December 2, 2019. Thank you to everyone who has submitted a proposal. I’m expecting a similarly robust exchange for this extended call. Again, I’m interested in approaches to the topic from the humanities, with exploration on rhetorics and philosophies of artificial intelligence, machine ethics, and moral machines.
Better Living Through TV?
We are seeking proposals for chapters to complete an edited collection on morality and ethics on/through television. The essays will address TV dramas and comedies aired during the Golden Age of TV, continuing through peak and prestige TV. An editor at Lexington Books, a division of Rowman & Littlefield, has expressed interest in this project.
Holidays are central components of culture. They can be celebratory or commemorative. They can be festive, merry, and joyous in their celebrations, or (also simultaneously) sombre, solemn, and reflective in their commemorations. They help us mark the calendar, highlight important sociocultural milestones, measure the passage of time, follow the turning of the seasons, and, in so doing, organize life and society.
The city has been a zone of contention for a considerable amount of time in literature—a producer of narratives as well as a consumer. These cities have embodied their characters and their narratives in a way that is reflective of the city’s topology, genealogy, and living archaeology. Literature, therefore, often serves to excavate the cities through its representations, and is also, in turn, unearthed. Rather than visualising the city as a null-space that exists horizontally to frame the literary work, the cities in literary works across its myriad cultural and national histories have turned more serpentine, more transgressive, and have moved in unpredictable trajectories.

’Cause in London Town
There’s just no place for a street fighting man
—The Rolling Stones, 1968
Mick Jagger’s words above can sometimes feel axiomatic. London has an outwardly less impressive revolutionary tradition to call upon than many of its closest neighbours, most obviously Paris. This is to say, of course, that history is political: if the past seems quiet, what hope for remaking the future?
London Rising is interested in redeeming the capital’s radical past whilst insisting upon the revolutionary potential of the present. Our aim is to collectively describe a continuum of tumult in London, attuned to the struggle between conflicting forces.
