Gender and National Identity in Film and Television: A Postgraduate
One-day Conference
The University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK **Conference date: Friday, June
23, 2006

This conference seeks postgraduates and new scholars researching,
historicizing, and theorizing the intersection of gender and nation in
film and television. The intersection of these two discourses is our
focus but we are interested also in papers that consider the relationship
of gender and nation within the frame of other film and television studies
topics. Essays with an interdisciplinary framework are welcome. Topics
may include (but are not limited to) the following:

CFP: Shakespeare and the Cultures of Childhood, 1807-2007 (1/31/06; journal issue)

Kate Chedgzoy

2007 sees the two-hundredth anniversary of the first publication of two
books that have played distinctively significant roles in the mediation
of Shakespeare for children, and the reception of his works by them:
Charles and Mary Lamb's Tales from Shakespeare, and Henrietta Bowdler's
The Family Shakespeare (revised by her brother Thomas a decade later).
As guest-editors of a cluster of essays in the December 2006 issue of
the new Routledge journal Shakespeare, we wish to take this anniversary
as an opportunity to reflect on some of the meanings and consequences of
Shakespeare's global travels through the cultures of childhood over the
last two hundred years.

CALL FOR PAPERS for A Century of the Marx Brothers to be published by
Cambridge Scholars Press.

This collection will consider the impact of the Marx Brother's work over
the past one hundred years. Papers can analyze individual films,
consider the Marx Brothers' influence on contemporary artists, or
explore some other aspect of their work. The collection hopes to
showcase the range of the Marx Brothers' influence and a variety of
theoretical approaches. Current contributions include the Marx Brothers
"ethnic construction of character," a Deleuzian reading of their humor,
Woody Allen's appreciation of their work, and a consideration of their
surrealistic aspects.
