From the Frankfurt School to contemporary cultural studies, the social ramifications of Disney movies and theme parks, and their cultural penumbra, have long provided rich terrain for critical scholarly analysis. This panel explores the discursive, literary, filmic, and historical dimensions of the Disney phenomenon in both the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Papers that draw upon the rich canon of scholarship on Disney and engage with its cultural effects through critical theory, spatial or historical analysis, feminist methodologies, or close reading strategies are particularly encouraged. This session is also interested in papers that specifically focus on this year's theme of sight, visuality, and ways of seeing.

ANZSA 2018 Panel CFP: “Lend thy serious hearing”: Irreverence and Play in Shakespeare Adaptations

Four hundred years after William Shakespeare’s death, his work continues to not only fill playhouses around the world, but be adapted for various forms of popular culture, including film, television, online video, and comics/graphic novels. These adaptations introduce a whole new generation of audiences to the work of Shakespeare, and are often fun, playful, engaging, and “irreverent, broadly allusive, and richly reimagined takes on their source material” (Cartelli and Rowe, New Wave Shakespeare on Screen, 2007, 1).
