CFP: Deadwood and Emotion (6/1/06; WALA, 10/25/06-10/28/06)

Panel Title: "Deadwood" and Emotion


Conference: Western American Literature Association, Boise, Idaho, October
25-28, 2006.


In keeping with the WLA conference theme, "Feeling Western," this panel will
examine the role of emotion in HBO's award-winning television western
"Deadwood." Although much has been said about the show's rough language,
violence, and its gritty and realistic portrayal of a frontier town and its
inhabitants, there has been little discussion thus far of its emotive and
even sentimental elements. The central question this panel will ask is: what
is the role of "feeling" and "feelings" in "Deadwood"?

CFP: Fake News and its Narratives (7/01/06; collection)

Submissions are invited for a proposed collection theorizing fabricated news and
its narratives.

In the past twenty-five years, American journalism has been scandalized by a
series of sensational cases of journalistic fraud. Janet Cooke, Stephen Glass,
and Jayson Blair are only the most notorious examples of reporters who have
been caught inventing characters, making up quotations, plagiarizing details,
and, in the most outrageous cases, faking entire stories.
