CFP for SCMS 2018: Consent Puzzles: Narratives and Media Debates on Sexual Consent

In many ways, consent is considered a prerequisite to ethical interactions. A nonconsensual act is viewed as an affront, a violation, an oppression. As David Archard in Sexual Consent notes, the distinction between sexual consent and nonconsent marks “the difference between the permissibility and impermissibility of some practice or activity.”

Yet the notion of consent resists both simplistic definition and straightforward interpretation. “Consent is a contractual notion,” Michel Foucault states in an interview in Politics, Philosophy, Culture, and, thus, he purposefully pinpoints a core problem with consent: individuals in everyday interactions regularly obtain and give consent without explicit written or verbal contracts.

NeMLA 2018: Writers in Hollywood: Film and Imagined Communities of the Literary. In the 20th C, writers like Raymond Chandler, William Faulkner, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Dorothy Parker, and Nathanael West went to Hollywood. As Chandler put it, they encountered a new industry of the literary where “little of worth their talent is allowed to achieve”. This session invites papers that explore colliding writing cultures, notions of the literary, adaptation, and movement across genre as writers successful in the novel, short story, essay, poem, etc. moved to screenplay, often a collaborative form, and to the “Hollywood system”.

Evil in the Written Word: Violent Narrators in Contemporary Latin American Fiction 

The topic of violence has been of significant importance in Spanish American literature. Brutal dictatorships, revolutionary wars, drug-related violence, and guerrilla warfare have left a strong imprint on contemporary Spanish American literature. Despite this, there are few literary works presented through the point of view of the perpetrator of violence and told in his or her voice. Consequently, few studies investigate the construction of these voices and analyze the effect of this narrative design in the literature of violence.

Abstract

In today’s economy, the field of composition studies is rapidly changing; partly out of the realities of the academic job market and partly as a result of the desire for high-level writing skills at the undergraduate level. As Magrino and Sorrell (2104) state in their discussion of the influx of graduate assistant in the composition classroom, “due to the demand upon Composition programs to provide courses that prepare undergraduates for authentic modes of discourse that they will encounter in the workplace, the number of undergraduate courses in Composition has risen dramatically, with the field of Business Communication seeing an especially steep spike.”

In her biography of Branwell Brontë, Daphne du Maurier described Branwell as ‘a spectre in the Brontë story, in pathetic contrast with the astonishing achievements of his sisters’. 2017 is Branwell’s bicentenary year, and Brontë Parsonage Museum is marking the occasion with a number of events and an exhibition curated by Simon Armitage, entitled Mansions in the Sky.
