This session welcomes papers that explore any aspect of American Literature before 1865, including American Renaissance, Colonial, and Puritan literature. While we are open to papers dealing with a variety of topics and authors during this time period, we are particularly interested in papers that engage with the special conference theme of "Acting, Roles, Stages." As such, papers dealing with issues such as acting as art and metaphor, theories of role play and theatricality, and conceptions of the world stage and the public audience in American Literature prior to 1865 are particularly welcome. If your paper does not tap into these specific themes but deals with literary topics relevant to this era, you are still more than welcome to submit a proposal.

This special issue of The Global South aims to identify new approaches to a pair of modern phenomena: the global migration of peoples, and the movement of film and related motion-picture media beyond national boundaries. Proposals are invited for essays that bring together these complex historical and cultural patterns, and examine the implications of the overlapping mobilities of humans and their motion pictures. How has international migration contributed to world film history from the late 19th century to the present? How has the mobility of film culture, from the itinerant travels of filmmakers themselves to the irrepressible movements of the films they created, identified, mirrored, paralleled, catalyzed, criticized, or otherwise register
Deadline for submissions: Proposals 1 July 2018, full chapters 14 October 2018
