SAMLA 89: High Art/Low Art Borders and Boundaries in Popular Culture
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 14, 2017

In the last two decades, Young Adult (YA) literature has become increasingly popular; both the YA fan base and YA publishing imprints have continued to grow at a time when many other subsets of book publishing are shrinking. Debates about whether YA literature qualifies as “High Art” or is always relegated beyond an arbitrary boundary to be “Low Art” are ongoing. Regardless of those debates, YA literature and its adaptations dominate popular culture.

BFS Journal 18

BFS Journal 18 is due out in October/November

The journal is a mix of articles and is keen to accept submissions from people who want to write about fantasy, horror and science fiction. Our focus is primarily the former, but our readers have interests across all three genres.

Academic articles for the BFS Journal should be between 2500 and 6000 words. We prefer nearer the former, as this is about the size of a conference paper. References in the text should be (Author, Date of Edition: Page Number) with a full publication listing for the bibliography given for each article at the end. Please don't use footnotes in your submissions.

New Approaches to Bob Dylan

Wednesday, June 28, 2017 - 3:28pm
University of Southern Denmark
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 1, 2018

Bob Dylan's songs have been the subject of countless close readings and interpretations. Philological research has identified many of the literary sources for Dylan’s lyrics. His songs have been studied in relation to the ballad tradition, romanticism, modernism, and postmodernism. Dylan’s revisionary approaches to what it means to be a poet have also been widely discussed. Drawing on the occasion of Dylan’s recent Nobel Prize, this conference seeks to open up new avenues and different approaches to his songs.

We are especially interested in the following topics:

Attachment and Attunement
