From Amy Heckerling’s 1995 film Clueless to Seth Graham-Smith’s 2016 novel, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (and its many adaptations),and from Sherri Browning Erwin’s 2011 novel Grave Expectations to Thomas Vinterberg’s 2015 film Far from the Madding Crowd, the proliferation of adaptations of nineteenth century texts does not look to abate soon, and scholars have been taking notice. Adaptation offers a new way to consume both nineteenth century culture and canonical texts. We are seeking submissions of papers exploring adaptations of Nineteenth Century literature in new genres and/or mediums. Abstracts should be no more than 300 words.

Given their contribution to the historical development of the coastal south and the Americas in general, pirates are relatively absent in the present southern literary canon and its criticisms. As the Companion to Southern Literature mentions with some surprise, “southern writers…seem not to have cared much about pirates…[particularly] given the fact that some of the most notorious pirates worked the coastal regions of the Southeast.” And yet, nineteenth-century fiction about the American South was flooded with pirates.

Monday, April 30, 2018

Call for submissions to a collection which critically examines programs that prominently feature children in international (i.e. non-American) television. Programs may include those targeted to children, or those programs targeted to adults but contain child characters. We invite submissions on programs from Canada, the UK, Continental Europe, Australasia, Africa, Asia, Central and South America, and the Middle East. These essays will explore how international television has been a significant conduit for the public consumption of changing ideas about children and childhood, and will connect relevant events, attitudes, or anxieties within their respective countries of origin to an analysis of children or childhood in international programs.

Consuming Cultures in Children's and Young Adult Literature and Cultures

Sunday, April 15, 2018

Critics such as James Kincaid, Kathryn Bond Stockton, Michelle Martin, Philippe Ariès, and Suzanne Linn have written about childhood and adolescence as something we consume, criticize, and commercialize, whilst simultaneously romanticizing and desiring. In Consuming Kids (2004), Suzanne Linn suggests consumerist culture is conducting a “hostile takeover” of childhood and adolescence. While cultural consumption of childhood and adolescence has increased, these spheres are likewise being offered up as commercial commodities across medias. We seek papers that explore all aspects of Children’s and Young Adult Literature, as well as those addressing the conference theme of consuming cultures.
