In our binge-mode culture, TV has become students’ preferred access point to critical thinking. Most college students do not see themselves in canonical texts or feel confident with analysis. Yet, students are typically employing skills of argumentation an analysis in dissecting shows on television, Netflix, and/or Hulu. Even though intellectual discussions, like the ethics around NBC’s The Good Place, occur on podcasts and cultural criticisms online, instructors often cast these opportunities aside as less than tertiary. However, these “alternative” discourse spaces often mirror the level of engagement instructors want to see in the argumentative papers their students write for composition and literature-focused classes.

The Emotional Life of Horror Films (SCMS panel)

Tuesday, July 17, 2018 - 10:59am
University of California, Berkeley
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, August 7, 2018

For all the research that has been conducted into the ideological underpinnings of horror, ideology is not ultimately constitutive of the genre. Emotions are, as producers and fans well know. Yet there has been scant scholarly attention given to emotions (or affects) as such in the genre. Whether the defining generic emotion is taken to be art-horror (Carroll), a feeling of threat (Aldana Reyes), or a looser family of reactions like fear and suspense and disgust (Schneider), there is no escaping emotions.

Panel - Renaissance Vegetarianism

The study of early modern food has blossomed in recent years. As scholars have parsed the politics of changing dining practices, the role of recipes in intellectual history, and the growing perception of food ethics as inextricable from social identity, dietary beliefs and habits have begun to be seen as central to early modern studies. One of the most striking dietary trends that spread across Europe in this period, however, remains underexamined: the rise of vegetarianism.
