The Great Fire: Reconsidered – Call for Papers
3 September 2016 – Wren Suite, St Paul’s Cathedral
The Great Fire of London has long been held as a watershed moment in London’s history. Over the course of four days in September 1666, an infernal blaze claimed over 13,000 houses, 87 churches and 52 livery halls, and rendered an estimated 70,000 people homeless. Yet while cellars still burned there were whispers at court that the conflagration might actually be ‘the greatest blessing that God ever conferred’ upon King Charles II because it had crippled the ‘rebellious’ City of London; forever opening its gates to royal power.
This proposed roundtable session will consider the challenges—technological, pedagogical, and practical—of creating a digital edition of a text specifically for use in the classroom. The absence of teaching editions of some texts, in particular those by women writers and writers of color, has become a growing concern for those who specialize in these authors. Editions may have gone out of print or only be available in expensive scholarly versions; meanwhile, publishers are hesitant to invest in texts that may not have a wide readership. This situation has some instructors struggling to use online versions that may not be easy to read or use, are rarely annotated, and are usually lacking contextual information.
Since Thilo Sarrazin’s controversial book Deutschland schafft sich ab was published in 2010, there has been an explosion of comedy and satire in Germany dealing with issues of immigration and integration, from sketches on established mainstream television programs such as the heute show to new productions such as Abdelkarim’s StandUp Migranten on ARD’s EinsPlus. With the recent debates surrounding comedian Jan Böhmermann’s satirical poem pillorying the Turkish president Recep Erdogan, the limits of satire and its political effects have also been the subject of widespread media attention.

CFP: Queer Sinners and Saints
An Area of the 2016 Film and History Conference
Oct. 26-30, 2016 - Milwaukee, WI, USA
Deadline for abstracts: July 15, 2016
The resurrection of discourses on morality, coupled with increasing legal and social acceptance for LGBT identities, makes this a ripe time to investigate how queerness, especially queer film and television, are understood in contemporary society. This area seeks to investigate godly and heretical queerness not only in representation, but also in industrial practices, production, and reception.
Avid comic book fans sat appalled in theatres as Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel reached the climax of the film in which Superman kills his enemy Zod. Snyder’s film raises the question of whether this killing and the death of Zod could actually fit with Superman’s traditional moral compass. From Man of Steel to the CW’s Arrow and Flash series to the Avengers franchise, comic book characters are facing new ethical developments in their rejuvenation that both encompass and go beyond the idea of killing one’s enemy.
JUXTAPOSITIONS: Journal of Haiku Research and Scholarship
This call is seeking papers with an interest in the way in which utopic/dystopic worlds in film, literature, and television (defined loosely) explore our relationship to technology. In the thoroughly technological 21st century, the terms utopia and dystopia are almost inextricably linked to ongoing technological advancements. In filmic explorations of the future technology and our dependence on it are often critiqued or otherwise explored.
Special Issue Call for Papers WOMEN’S WRITING“Generations”Winter 2017 Issue
In honor of the 25th anniversary of the British Women Writers Association in 2017, Women’s Writing invites submissions for a special issue on the theme of “Generations.” While generational transitions are often productive and even revolutionary, they are seldom ever easy or smooth. Such transitions may be accompanied by paradigm shifts, struggles to be heard, or difficulty letting go. In this spirit, the editors especially welcome investigations into the complexities of generational exchange and transition in the field of women’s writing.
Call for Papers: New Research in the Early Drama of the Low Countries

The Medieval and Renaissance Drama Society seeks three 20-minute presentations on
any aspect of medieval and early modern Dutch and Flemish drama for a session at the 2017
International Medieval Congress at Leeds.
We particularly encourage papers that focus on the 2017 IMC conference theme of
otherness. The Low Countries seems a particularly fruitful area of focus for this theme, as they
