CFP: Living-Room Wars: American Militarism on the Small Screen

updated: 
Thursday, April 24, 2014 - 4:41pm
Stacy Takacs and Anna Froula

The television industry in the United States was born of the early military-corporate alliance that resulted in the formation of the Radio Corporation of America (RCA) in 1917. A quasi-private entity created at the behest of US Navy as a means of centralizing control over the emerging medium of radio, RCA was a major player in the development of television technologies and forms. Its broadcasting arm, the National Broadcasting Corporation (NBC), would be run for years by "General" David Sarnoff, a wireless wiz-kid who served on General Dwight D. Eisenhower's communications staff during WWII.

Sustainable Stories of Carson McCullers (The 86th Annual SAMLA Conference, Atlanta, Georgia, November 7-9, 2014)

Alison Bertolini: The Carson McCullers Center for Writers and Musicians (Columbus State University) in conjunction with The Carson McCullers Society

In recent years, there has been a revived interest in the work of Carson McCullers. For example, in 2001 the Library of America published a collection of her novels followed by a second print run in 2004. Also in 2004, talk show host Oprah Winfrey chose The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter as the selection for her popular book club, and soon after The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter became part of The Big Read, a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest. More than 40 years after McCullers's death, the love, loneliness, and longing that haunt her stories still resonate with readers.

[UPDATE] CFP: Edited Collection on Bruce Springsteen for Routledge Studies in Popular Music Series

Wednesday, April 23, 2014 - 3:49pm
Bill Wolff / Rowan University

I am soliciting abstracts by scholars from all disciplines, including scholar-fans and fan-scholars, to be considered for inclusion in an edited collection on Bruce Springsteen, which will eventually be submitted to Routledge's Studies in Popular Music series. The editor of this series has expressed an interest in seeing a Springsteen collection proposal.

In the middle of Bruce Springsteen's 2012 Wrecking Ball tour promotional interview with the Paris media, one reporter observed, "so many people these past couple years look to you for your interpretation of events… . Look at us: when we were waiting for you earlier, so many people care about what you think, and what you feel about what is happening in the world."
