We are seeking contributions for a volume on Samuel Beckett and contemporary art to be published by Ibidem Press, distributed by Columbia University Press, as part of their new Beckett in Company Series. We aim to collect essays on the intersection of contemporary art and the drama, poetry, and prose of Samuel Beckett as well as interviews with and new documentation by working artists who draw upon or are inspired by Beckett's work. We are not seeking essays that cover Beckett's study of painting, his art criticism, or his connection to modern artists of the first half of the twentieth century.

[UPDATE, deadline extended] THE REAL AND THE INTERMEDIAL, Oct 23-24, 2015 (deadline June 30) Film and Media Studies Conference

updated:

Sapientia Hungarian University of Transylvania, Cluj-Napoca, Romania

Following up on the themes introduced in our previous conferences dedicated to "film in the post-media age", the "cinema of sensations", "rethinking intermediality in the digital age", and "figurations of intermediality in film", we invite you to address one of the most puzzling phenomena of contemporary media and film: the intertwining of the illusion of reality with effects of intermediality, connecting the experience of a palpable, everyday world with artificiality, abstraction and the awareness of multiple mediations.

CFP: Complicated Masculinities in Popular Culture

Recent scholarship supports the notion that contemporary American masculinity is complex and problematic. Many scholarly projects seem to reflect a "crisis" perspective and focus on the negative or limiting aspects of changing masculinities. In contrast, this edited collection will focus on the possibilities of multiple, fluid, complex, twenty-first-century masculinities.

Modalities: Politics and Poetics, 18-19 Sept 2015

Tuesday, May 26, 2015 - 2:54pm
full name / name of organization: 
Rice University English Graduate Symposium

This is a symposium about –alities. Now commonplace, terms like temporality, governmentality, positionality, and so on have made their way into literary studies and the humanities more broadly. The broadening of scholarship beyond the human now underway requires that we take a fresh look at the poetics and politics of interpretation, whether or not our scholarship studies the nonhuman explicitly. At the precise moment at which we are being told to look "outside," we need to get clear again: what is this outside? Is it thinkable? Can we say what we have been saying in such a climate?

Reminder: Edited Collection / Rethinking Globalization and Spatial Scale [Abstracts May 29th]

full name / name of organization: 
North Carolina State University

We are seeking essays for an edited collection titled Rethinking Globalization and Spatial Scale. The goal of the volume is to bring together interdisciplinary research on globalization spanning the humanities and social sciences that foregrounds theoretical and methodological conceptualizations of scale—how people, capital, goods, material infrastructure, ideas, and power aggregate along or slide among different degrees or levels of attachment, from personal to local to national to transnational.

Working-class writing: an essay collection

On 12 May 2015, five days after the Tories secured a parliamentary majority in the general election, the Guardian reported that David Cameron was "expected to lay out his plans for a parliament of 'blue-collar Conservatism'" to his cabinet. References to "working people" recurred in the election campaign, and Cameron's comments suggest that they remain a site of political dispute even after their votes have been counted, a category parties struggle to control and mobilize. "Working people" themselves have been conspicuously absent from this process, though, and the term "working class," with its radical connotations and history, has been relatively little used.
