Intersecting Global Modernism and World Literature

updated: 
Tuesday, August 9, 2016 - 3:46pm
ACLA 2017: Utrecht University, July 6-9
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 23, 2016

The recent global turn in modernist studies prompts timely questions about the intersections between global modernism and world literature, and the role that global modernism plays within the study of world and comparative literature. In their article “The New Modernist Studies,” Douglas Mao and Rebecca Walkowitz argued for an “expanded” vision of modernism that reconsiders canonical figures and texts, contests canonicity’s traditional limits, and redefines temporal and geographical coordinates beyond Anglophone traditions and Eurocentric frameworks.

Children in American Television: A Changing Landscape

updated: 
Friday, August 5, 2016 - 4:36pm
Adrian Schober/Monash University, Debbie Olson/Missouri Valley College
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 15, 2016

Call for submissions to a collection that interrogates the child image in popular post-WWII American television programming.  This collection seeks to trace the American cultural landscape and its impact on the ways popular television (re) imagined childhood and children during each decade.  We invite submissions that examine either children’s programming or programs that prominently feature children. These submissions will explore how US television has been a significant conduit for the public consumption of changing ideas about children and childhood, and will connect relevant events, attitudes, or anxieties in American culture to an analysis of children or childhood in American television programs.

Since Karen Barber theorized the notion of “African popular arts” nearly thirty years ago (1987), a rich field of scholarship has developed around the term, exploring forms of local African expression by the people, for the people, and most often, about the people. The concept of African popular culture has been applied to a vast array of cultural forms in Africa ranging from Onitsha pamphlet literature to Kenyan matatu minibus inscriptions, Ghanaian Concert party theatre, Angolan hip-hop, Nollywood video films, Cameroonian detective fiction, Congolese Sapeur fashion, South African cartooning, trans-continental TV shows like Big Brother Africa, and much more.

Something Stirs in the Shadows: Textualizing Horror and Theorizing the Indian (edited volume)

There is a metaphysical gravity that pulls consciousness towards the incomprehensible darkness of ‘dread,’ like the impulse to willingly dive into the abyss, as into something utterly unknown - an analogy made famous by Kierkegaard in The Concept of Dread. But what is dread, exactly, and what are the cultural, philosophical and physical significances of a genre that uses dread as its primary structure of feeling? Is ‘horror’ even a genre? Can it be encompassing of dread, terror, angst or revulsion?

Monsters II: Immaterial Monsters

The recent scholarly turn towards greater consideration of the material culture of the Middle Ages paradoxically also draws attention back to the places where materiality is strikingly absent. Monsters are often seen by medieval and modern commentators as inextricably linked with their embodiment, and yet are frequently insubstantial.

Hell Studies: Hellish Remixes

Remix Studies is a nascent but fast-growing field. Just last year Routledge published its first critical companion to Remix Studies, and interest in the field -- which critically examines the relationships of sources and analogues, as well as the production and reproduction of texts -- is steadily growing. That said, to this point very little attempt has been made to apply this theory to the study of medieval materials. This session proposes to jump-start the discourse of Remix Studies in a medieval context by providing a venue for discussion.
