Dr Steven Powell University of Liverpool

'James Ellroy: Visions of Noir' 1-3 July 2015, will be held at the University of Liverpool and sponsored by the School of English. This conference will examine Ellroy's influence on the genre, his inspirations as a writer and his achievements in forging an idiosyncratic and unique style. We seek to foster an interdisciplinary approach in order to explore subjects such as Ellroy's reinterpretation of the history of Los Angeles and the United States, as well as the connections between genre fiction and cinema through film noir.

Theorizing in the Chick Lit Genre (Proposed Collection of Essays)

updated: 
Wednesday, February 4, 2015 - 2:42pm
Erin Hurt, West Chester University

Though the chick lit genre is most often cited as a location for the study of contemporary white women's experiences or perhaps to debate the genre's feminist credentials, it has in the last fifteen years emerged as a site where protagonists of many ethnicities negotiate their cultural identities and notions of national belonging. In novels such as Alisa Valdes Rodriguez's The Dirty Girls Social Club (2003) or Tara FT Sering's Amazing Grace (2008), Latina, African-American, South Asian-American, and Chinese-American protagonists redefine their relationship to the United States, their families, and their heritage while at the same time they attempt to achieve, in typical chick lit fashion, some measure of success.

CFP MLA 2016 (Austin, 01/07-01/10) Special Session "Circulating Notions of TB"

"Circulating Notions of TB"

Conference papers invited that examine the representation of patients' experiences with tuberculosis in imaginative, digital, and other texts.

How do these narratives, metaphors, or images intersect with or even actively shape public behavior, public health initiatives, public thought, or other things "public" (like public personas)?

Ideally, I'd like this panel to explore notions of TB and their public circulation, broadly construed, from within various historical and national contexts.

Send 300-word abstracts to Amy Rubens, PhD at arubens@fmarion.edu by March 15.
