The editors of Monsters with a Thousand Faces: Adaptations of Literary Horrors are seeking abstracts for essays that could be included in the upcoming collection. This collection will feature essays focused on adaptations of characters that first appeared in a traditional novel or short stories. The adaptations can be in any other form of media (film, television, radio drama, comic books, stage play, etc.) or even be an appropriation of the original character into a new novel.
Among the monsters we are hoping to see included in the collection are:
-Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
-The Invisible Man
-Monsters from mythology
-Monsters from Fairy Tales
For this special volume, we are calling for papers grounded in urban processes in cities throughout the Luso-Hispanic World. We welcome both research essays (7,000-10,000
words) as well as review essays (2,500-4,000 words). To submit, send an abstract by November 1, 2016 to: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline for finished papers: March 1, 2017 For more information on the Journal of Urban Cultural Studies, go to http://www.intellectbooks.co.uk/journals/view-Journal,id=225/

If you are attending NeMLA (Baltimore, Maryland: March 23, 2017) and would like a gentle introduction to computer-assisted explorations of your favorite digitized texts, consider enrolling in our hands-on workshop. In our experience, scholars who might like to perform computational analysis in their areas of expertise and/or wish to teach their students how to do so become discouraged too early in the game. This workshop will provide hands-on exposure to and practice with the free, open-source, web-based tool Lexos, including course materials that we have used in our interdisciplinary courses.

Word Hoard is currently soliciting articles, essays, interviews, poetry, fiction, creative pieces, and other publishable works on the theme of HANGOVER.
How do you prepare for a hangover? You can’t. Though folk and faux-scientific remedies abound, you can neither predict nor control what comes after celebration, outburst, exertion, or indulgence. A hangover reaches its tortuous apex when intoxicant levels return to zero, when necessary recovery and bare survival become the consequences of excess. How does one begin to cope, to clean up? How does one think through, and despite, one’s bodily timeline? What of the past still saturates the present?
