Lindsay Bryde / Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

This roundtable will be looking holistically at perspectives on the first 22 films in the MCU. This arc will be brought to completion with Avenger’s Endgame. Now would be a good time to look back and assess which gambles have worked and/or failed now that a narrative arc has been completed. Participants are encouraged to consider the MCU both as a whole as well as specific franchises under the overall banner.  

The conference is through the Northeast Modern Language Association and will take place March 5-8th, 2020 in Boston, MA

Submissions are due: September 30, 2019

Call for Papers

Videogames have grown into a global socio-cultural phenomenon and are now a primary concern of Literary and Cultural Studies as well as the Social Sciences. In a medium that sweeps across geographies (including virtual ones), however, the discourse usually privileges a certain section  when it comes to the representation of identity. In a medium, where roleplaying and playing in character is of prime importance, such an ignoring of the marginal and the diverse is indeed problematic.

The Impact of American Superheroes around the World (NeMLA 2020)

Monday, September 30, 2019

No one escapes Marvel’s Endgame: the economic and cultural impact of the past few decades’ boom in superhero movies, and more broadly superhero narratives, is evident well beyond the boundaries of the United States. In fact, the presence and influence of American comic-book superheroes abroad started shortly after the debut of DC's Superman in 1938, and has been growing ever since.

This area of the Mid-Atlantic Popular and American Culture Conference (MAPACA), November 7-9 2019, includes all novel genres, authors, time periods, cultures, and settings. Consider it a safety net for novels that don’t fit neatly into a specific genre or that cross genres. For example, consider the many sub-genres of Romance with a capital “R”—western, thriller, paranormal, religious, romance (with a small “r”), detective, urban fantasy, etc. From Pearl S. Buck to Lee Child, from Laurie King to Tony Hillerman, from Julia Spencer-Fleming to Emilie Richards—all are welcome.

*REMINDER*

In a span of ten years Blumhouse has amassed a film library of over 50 films that includes notable horror franchises as Paranormal Activity (2009-2015), The Purge (2013-) and Insidious (2010-), critically lauded films as Split (2017) and Get Out (2017), and box-office sensations as Happy Death Day (2017) and Truth or Dare (2018). The company was also behind a highly-hyped new installment of Halloween (1978-) and an untitled Dee Rees’ horror film focusing on the lives of black lesbians in rural America that is in development.
