deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 12, 2018

2017 was a year of feminist action: the year began with the national Women’s March in DC, and the year closed with media reporting mass cover-ups of sexual exploitation and abuse in Hollywood and with the reporting of women finding power in uniting their voices. The #metoo movement was birthed and has become a rallying cry for continued awareness of misogynistic practices, collaboration to resist gendered violence, and recover women’s innate worth. Oprah Winfrey summed up these actions in her 2018 Golden Globes speech stating, “Speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have. And I'm especially proud and inspired by all the women who have felt strong enough and empowered enough to speak up and share their personal stories.”

Satire: Deaths, Births, and Legacies

Saturday 2 June 2018

York St John University

School of Humanities, Religion and Philosophy

So—satire is no more—I feel it die—
No Gazetteer more innocent than I—
And let, a’ God’s name, every fool and knave
Be graced through life, and flattered in his grave.

 

Alexander Pope, ‘Epilogue to the Satires’ (1738)

The Shifting Landscape of Crime on the German Small Screen

updated: 
Thursday, January 11, 2018 - 9:17am
German Studies Association Annual Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 5, 2018

We are soliciting abstracts for a panel at the German Studies Association Annual Conference in Pittsburgh, PA September 27-30, 2018.

Traditionally the small screen has portrayed danger and crime in the context of the metropolitan, but shows like Weinberg, Dark, Tatort, Polizeiruf 110, among others have increasingly shifted the focus to suburbs, small-towns, and countryside infringing on the tranquility of these supposedly safe spaces. These shows expose the deviance and intrigue of non-metropolitan locales. Does this conflict move from the city and into the small-town or have these towns always maintained an undercurrent of menace, of which we are just now aware?
