Linguistic Reimaginings in Speculative Fiction (MLA 2020)

Wednesday, February 27, 2019 - 9:26am
MLA 2020
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 20, 2019

New worlds and beings often entail alternate modes of communication and understanding. Posing speculative circumstances, lands, and creatures, works of science fiction and fantasy are therefore particularly conducive to linguistic reimaginings. Indeed, numerous speculative fiction narratives foreground a linguistic component: seemingly peculiar languages and unusual linguistic constructions drive characters to grapple with notions of communication, alterity, and humanity.

Call for Papers: Frankenstein’s Lives: Shelley’s Novel as Cultural Phenomenon

Co-edited by Robert I. Lublin and Elizabeth Fay

We seek chapter proposals for a collection that celebrates the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.

After 200 years, Frankenstein has emerged into an international cultural phenomenon. During the novel’s bicentennial, events took place around the world to celebrate the novel’s publication. Frankenstein continues to be more salient than ever. We are compiling a collection that explores the range of cultural responses the novel has elicited as well as the ways it continues to be relevant to our world today and to the future.

Adaptation: In Service of Cinema or Novel?

Monday, April 15, 2019 - 2:03pm
Language, Literature, and Interdisciplinary Studies (LLIDS)
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, April 30, 2019

Collaborations of cinema with other art forms open up myriad of issues like the medium’s ability to maintain fidelity to the original narrative, its transformation of the original narrative, or its desire to treat the original as only an occasion for a different narrative. Adaptation studies have, as yet, largely concentrated on studying films as derivatives of original works reinforcing Rabindranath Tagore’s observation that “[c]inema is still playing second fiddle to literature.” It is commonly viewed as a presumptuous palimpsest whose merit lies in its techniques of appropriation, intersection, and transformation of the source text.
