Lance Rubin/The William Dean Howells Society

The William Dean Howells Society welcomes submissions for a panel at the 2011 ALA in Boston that deal with any and all issues related to teaching Howells in the classroom. What has succeeded? What obstacles do you face? We are especially interested in presentations that offer insights into teaching Howells to undergraduate students and/or with such mega-anthologies as the Heath and Norton. Also important are presentations exploring the use of the vast resources of the media and the Internet.

Please submit your 200-250 word abstract and a current CV (or any inquiries) to Lance Rubin at lance.rubin@arapahoe.edu by September 7, 2010.

In the early 1980's cinema began an ongoing relationship with a new young medium: the internet. Since the early depictions of hackers like Flynn in Tron (1982) and David in War Games (1983), as the technology has become ubiquitous in homes and in places of work, the internet has achieved increasing prominence in a variety of film genres. Internet films have been used as a locus for philosophizing about human nature (The Matrix (1999)) and as a method of contemporizing remakes (You've Got Mail (1998)); they have been integrated into existing genres (Weird Science (1985), Fear Dot Com (2002), Chat Room (2010)), and have reflected on the business of the internet in documentary (startup.com (2001)) and feature length films (The Social Network (2010).

CFP: Borderlands and Breaking Points: Tension Across the 49th Parallel

Edited by Kyle Conway and Timothy Pasch

For a certain class of phenomena, the logic of the national border--that is, the logic of the controlled passage from one side to the other--does not hold. Crime operates by definition outside of the legal frameworks on either side of a border. Rivers flow across borders, regardless of the actions of the governments whose territories they affect. Native communities, in particular those on the U.S.-Canadian border, enjoy sovereign status that gives their members special rights when crossing the border.
