Contributions are sought for an interdisciplinary collection of essays on the Hallmark television channels to be published by McFarland & Co. We are interested in a sustained exploration of the television channel and brand as a cultural phenomenon. At the end of 2017, The Washington Postpublished an article entitled “We can’t take any more of 2017, so we’ve turned to the Hallmark Channel in desperation.” The article described men and women – but mostly women – engaging in a particular brand of escapism from the seemingly daily barrage of bad news: watching Hallmark Channel original movies.

SOUTH ATLANTIC MODERN LANGUAGE ASSOCIATION
November 2-4, 2018
This panel invites submissions that think about the way women writers and artists nationally and globally have confronted the political and legal regulation of women’s bodies, and the way the body itself can subsequently become an important site of socio-political resistance. Paper proposals may consider (but are not limited to) regulatory measures in the areas of reproduction, sexual expression, beauty culture, body modification/transformation, and miscegenation/relational body politics.
Proposals focusing on transnational, multiethnic, and multicultural women writers and artists are especially welcome.
