CFP for the 2018 ACLA Panel: Tattoos as/in Literature: Beyond the Semiotic and the Bodily.  After the “linguistic turn,” and at the intersection of (post)structuralism, deconstruction, and the evolving series of critical discourses on materiality, bodies, the non-human, theory and literary criticism have discovered a need to read beyond words and purely linguistic signification in general. Images and bodies appear no longer as limits of discourse, or as what needs to be translated into words, but as surfaces of signification in themselves. Derrida’s own spatial and visual experimentation in his writing pointed towards the need to consider the inseparable links between words, images, and bodies, not only in literature, but also in theory and philosophy.

You Win or You Die: Performances of Gender, Death, and Power in Game of Thrones

Called “the world’s most popular show” by TIME magazine, Game of Thrones has changed the

landscape of serial narrative during an era hailed as the New Golden Age of TV. While an

adaptation of George R. R. Martin’s epic fantasy A Song of Fire and Ice, the television show has

taken on a life of its own, including creating original plotlines when the story advanced past the

books that Martin has published.

With the death of protagonist Ned Stark at the end of Season One, Game of Thrones launched

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

In the introduction to her book The Female Servant and Sensation Fiction, Elizabeth Steere recounts how mid-nineteenth century critics originated the term “kitchen literature” to deride new fictions that appealed to the servant classes. The kitchen, however, has played no small part in English literature of all periods. Conventionally an iconic site of women’s labor, domestic kitchens have been used to cook meals, brew beverages, and even distill medicines and perfumes.

Locating "Poetry of Resistance": Poetry and the Politics of Space

Northeast Modern Language Association Convention (4/12-15/18)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

SHORT FORM CFP:

This panel examines the relationship between the contemporary poetry community’s call for “poetry of resistance” and the particular locations or spaces that such poems represent. Papers may examine how particular locations or spaces define the language of resistance or how poetic resistance defines particular locations or spaces. How is resistance defined locally, globally, geographically, environmentally, or personally in poetry? And how does poetry define the relationship between resistance and location?

Send 250-300 word abstracts to Kirsten Ortega at kortega@uccs.edu by September 30, 2017.
