This collection attempts to look at the role of digital media as a constructive and disseminating narrative in the world, to delineate a meta-narrative of ‘digital martyrdom’. This collection aims to initiate a study not only on martyrdom in the digital space but a digitisation of martyrdom. It will seek to look especially at the role of mainstream and sponsored media propaganda to locate those interstices in the narratives which subtly subvert narratives of the mainstream mass media. In the first section of the collection, the focus will be on chapters which use as its premise usage of commercial media. The subversion is to be specifically located in the dissemination, language, and reception of the contents of the media matter.

Although the phenomenon of World War I trauma, particularly shell shock, greatly influenced both British and American literary modernism, the trauma, and its reception, was different on each side of the Atlantic, both in its scale and its quality. This panel seeks essays on both British and American literary and cultural representations of World War I trauma, particularly shell shock. Essays that compare and contrast the American and British experiences and representations of shell shock are particularly welcome, and will be given special consideration.

 

Some authors to consider include:

At the dawn of ‘ecocriticism’ as a discipline of study within the Humanities, Glotfelty and Fromm (1996), in the first general reader in the matter, defined it as the critical practice that examines the relationship between literary and cultural studies and the natural world. In general terms, during the past two decades, ecocriticism has denounced the anthropocentric and instrumental appropriation of nature that has for so long legitimized human exploitation of the nonhuman world.

With the rise of peak TV two decades into the 21st century, television has disrupted the film industry, and it has produced – and been affected by – dramatic changes in the popular consumption of visual media. While movie attendance continued its steep decline in 2017 (reaching a 25-year low), network, cable, and internet-streaming platforms combined to air nearly 500 scripted television shows in 2017, an increase from around 200 shows in 2002.

Discourses of Instability, Inclusion, and Exclusion in the Trump Era

Papers are welcome that address the destabilizing of language and discourse practices, particularly in the inclusion and exclusion of various constituencies, in the Trump Era. These practices may range from micro-level ones, such as inclusive/exclusive pronoun strategies, to macro-level ones, such as the explosion of fake news and the semiotic challenges posed by it to the representation of politics and policies.
