Building on the work of our three previous collections, Spaces of Surveillance (2017), Surveillance, Race, Culture (2018) and Surveillance, Architecture and Control: Discourses on Spatial Culture (2018), this call seeks papers investigating the role of nostalgia on screen from within the context of contemporary American culture and politics.
Co-editors Alyson R. Buckman, Juliette C. Kitchens, and Katherine A. Troyer invite proposals or completed, previously unpublished essays for a scholarly anthology on the representation of trauma, memory, and disability in the works of Joss Whedon. While scholarly texts on the Whedonverse are numerous, less work has been done on the construction of trauma, memory, and disability within these works.
The deadline for this CFP has been extended to Friday, December 7, 2018. We look forward to reading your workshop, roundtable, panel, or paper proposal soon! Please send any proposals and/or queries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
2nd Biennial International Conference on Redefining Australia and New Zealand: Changes, Innovations, Reversals: Warsaw, 16-17 September 2019
This conference will be taking place at the Faculty of Modern Languages building, University of Warsaw
This study day aims to bring researchers together to debate the postmodern and postcolonial intersections in literary and cultural studies. Grounded in contemporary postmodern and postcolonial thematic and aesthetic concerns, the study day will attempt to explore the confluences of the two theoretical trends, the discursive spaces offered by the first to the second. In this regard, relations between the East and the West and how such relations are presented and re-represented in multifarious ways in the writing and re-writing of literary and cultural texts are investigated.
