Yang, Sharon

I am putting together a book collection of essays on The X-Files and Literature. I am looking for essays of 20-40 pages that explore The X-Files' revision and adaptation of literature and literary conventions, literary works or forms that anticipate the major traits that make The X-Files what it is, and the television program's reflexive influence on other forms of literature or 20/21st-century adaptations of literature. Please submit an abstract of 250-500 words by 6/04/06 to:

CFP: Fake News and its Narratives (7/1/06; collection)

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.

SFSU Cinema Studies Graduate Association Conference
  In the aim of expanding the dialogue around cinema, we are interested in exploring critical approaches to film that push beyond narrative and character-centric methods, specifically those addressing issues of space within and without the film frame.
  The intent of this conference is to focus on how space is investigated, portrayed or enacted in cinema with an attention to the relationship between space and conflict. Some possible areas of discussion could include (but are not limited to):
  ê Geographic conflict zones (cultural, political, environmental)
  ê Rural/urban space (e.g., film noir, musicals, etc.)
