[UPDATE] John Dos Passos and the Other Arts (SAMLA 2015: 13-15 Nov, Durham NC): Deadline extended

John Dos Passos Society

John Dos Passos was undoubtedly one of the most eclectic American writers of his generation. Faithful as he was to the intermedial aesthetics of modernism, he did not limit himself to the role of novelist, but frequently also crossed over into the neighboring arts: as an accomplished painter and illustrator, as a playwright and sometime set designer for the New Playwrights Theatre, and through his work on Hollywood cinema and documentary film. The resulting cross-pollination would fuel Dos Passos's creativity over the years, influencing his most celebrated novels.

Reflecting on the seismic cultural and political shifts of his own time, Francis Bacon pinpointed 'printing, gunpowder, and the compass' as the technological drivers which had 'changed the appearance and state of the whole world'. Bacon's identification of communicative (print), violent (gunpowder) and technological (compass) forms of cultural expression and exchange as world-shaping continues to resonate, shaping the production and interpretation of texts.

In 2015, 800 years has elapsed since the adoption of Magna Carta, regarded as the symbolic beginning of parliamentary culture and the cornerstone of British democracy. Its spread in the era of Great Britain's colonial expansion influenced governance of many countries that were hewn from the Empire's fabric, increased the popularity of the myth of Britishness, and enhanced the development of democratic values throughout the world. We believe that the forthcoming anniversary is a great opportunity to reconsider Magna Carta's legacy and its notions of freedom in culture, politics and mass media.

New Mediums of Modernism: Modernism and Popular Culture- SAMLA- 6/12 Deadline

Peter Nicholls argues that modernism should not be conceived of as a large single movement but as a multiplicity of smaller undertakings that at once reinforced, contradicted, drove, and inhibited one another. These diverse submovements were united only by their shared inspiration--the emerging technologies, ideas, and events that were rapidly remaking the world in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

[Deadline Extended] Food for Thought: New Critical Perspectives on Veganism and Meat Consumption

updated: 
Monday, June 1, 2015 - 7:23pm
full name / name of organization: 
Rasmus Simonsen & Jodey Castricano

Published in the Ecocritical Theory and Practice series by Lexington Books, this edited collection will re-examine the ethics, politics and aesthetics of veganism. In recent years, a burgeoning array of vegan cookbooks—The Joy of Vegan Baking, How it all Vegan!, Sinfully Vegan—have departed from earlier stereotypes of healthy but unappealing vegetarian food to emphasise pleasure and taste as key components of a diet free from animal products. Contemporary popular culture offers up humorous representations of vegans, such as those in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and David Agranoff's The Vegan Revolution…with Zombies.
