Louis Owens (1948-2002) was one of the major voices of contemporary Native American literature and scholarship. His work includes five acclaimed novels, scholarly studies, and some one hundred essays.  The extensive oeuvre Owens produced includes writing on themes of mixed-blood identities, working-class life, travel, western American landscapes, the environment, survivance, tricksters, story-telling, and memory.  Owens was a scholar of international stature on John Steinbeck, a writer whose realism strongly influenced his own fiction.

New Approaches to Gertrude Stein's THREE LIVES

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

Since its publication in 1909, Gertrude Stein’s Three Lives has been, unlike much of Stein’s other works, the object of academic interest and artistic commentary, appropriation, and criticism. Stein herself more than once complained about people continually wishing her to write “another ‘Melanctha,’” while others have judged this work as everything from an ideological racist screed to the most sensitive and sympathetic portrait of an African American woman of its time. This panel seeks to encourage new critical perspectives on what remains Stein’s most popular and widely read and studied work of shorter fiction.

Have you ever read a review of a comic or graphic novel on a website and felt like you were only reading a book report? How many of you noticed an article in an academic journal that focused on one of your favorite graphic novels, but it ended up glossing over – or completely forgetting – to mention aspects of the art and dryly deconstructed the narrative?

SCMS 2017 Panel CFP: So Bad It’s Good

“Clearly, in cinematic circles of all kinds, there has been a significant realignment on the social terrain of taste, a powerful response to what has been termed ‘the siren song of crap’.”

-       Jeffrey Sconce

“To understand bad taste one must have very good taste. Good bad taste can be creatively nauseating but must, at the same time, appeal to the especially twisted sense of humor, which is anything but universal.”

-       John Waters
