updated:

University of Málaga,University of Seville, University of Cádiz (Spain) and ATDS

We regret to inform you that due to unexpected
circumstances, we are forced to cancel the International Conference on American Theatre and Drama, that was to be held in Málaga in May 25-27,2016.
In the previous conferences organized in Málaga, we had the financial support of several institutions, such as the American Embassy in Madrid, the Spanish Ministry of Education and the Regional Government.
Unfortunately, we have just been informed by these institutions that as a result of the severe budget cuts and the change in their funding policies, none of them will be able to grant us any financial aid with the costs of the conference, which means that we cannot move forward with this academic meeting.

Queer Poetics at PAMLA 2015 - 11/6-8

Ryan Sullivan, UC Riverside

This panel seeks papers that consider what it might mean to think about poetics in relation to queer studies—specifically scholars who are working with queer studies in conjunction with historical poetics, the history of poetic criticism, and lyric theory. Rather than papers that read poetry by queer writers or read queerness in poetry, this panel is looking for work that thinks more about what it means to write poetry as a queer person, about how that poetry circulates in the world, and how that poetry is read and received. Keeping with the conference theme, papers that think about poetics in relation to queer questions of time, temporality and history are particularly encouraged.

The Comics of Art Spiegelman [edited volume]

Georgiana Banita (University of Bamberg, Germany), Lee Konstantinou (University of Maryland, College Park)

The importance of Art Spiegelman as a pioneer and theorist of comics is hard to overstate. His work has not only pushed the boundaries of comics (both in terms of form and subject matter) but also convinced many readers and critics of this art form's inherent aesthetic value. Indeed, the development of the term "graphic novel" in part signaled a burgeoning critical appreciation of the power of comics, an appreciation that Spiegelman's pen — from his underground comix to his Pulitzer Prize-winning MAUS to his tireless critical advocacy of comics and cartooning — helped foster.
