Dr. Douglas Cunningham, Westminster College

Seeking 300-word proposals for an edited collection (already under contract with Salem Press) of 15 essays on the work of Alfred Hitchcock. All Hitchcock (and Alma Reville Hitchcock) topics are welcome. I am particularly interested in essays that address Hitchcock's silent work, Selznick-era work, and post-MARNIE works such as TOPAZ and FRENZY, but proposals on the "old standbys" are also very welcome (AND NEEDED). Proposals for essays rooted in deep theory are also welcome, but the final papers for such accepted proposals will need to be accessible to an undergraduate readership. Essays about unproduced Hitchcock works (e.g., MARY ROSE, BLIND MAN, etc.) are also welcome. Proposals must be received by 15 June 15.

This panel welcomes papers on the various social, intellectual, or textual networks among authors and consumers of early modern literature and science. This panel seeks to understand what new networks of influence or collaboration we can discover by pairing disparate genres/fields of inquiry in the early modern period. Essentially, this panel asks: how can disparate or shared methods of signification within literary and scientific genres challenge our understanding of the early modern production of knowledge?

A Century On: Modernist Studies in Wales
The Inaugural Modernist Network Cymru Conference

The Research Institute of the Arts and Humanities,
Swansea University, Monday 7 September 2015

Keynote speaker: Professor Angharad Price (Bangor University)

The 2010s have been a busy decade for modernist scholars. In 2010, the inaugural BAMS conference considered Virginia Woolf's (in)famous assertion that 'On or about December 1910, human character changed'; in 2013, BBC Radio 3 ran a series of programmes celebrating Paris' annus mirabilis, exemplified by the 1913 premiere of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring; and in 2014 we celebrated Dylan Thomas' birth in a year-long series of events.

Phillip Zapkin

This panel seeks interesting and innovative papers in the field of adaptation studies. As Linda Hutcheon writes in A Theory of Adaptation, adapters "are just as likely to want to contest the aesthetic or political values of the adapted text as to pay homage." Our panelists will explore the political uses to which adaptation is put, considering why and how authors adapt specific texts for political purposes. We will consider the possibilities and limitations of using adaptation as a political tool.

Christopher Allen Varlack

From Langston Hughes' 1955 collaboration with photographer Roy DeCarava in The Sweet Flypaper of Life, Wallace Thurman's 1929 collaboration with William Jourdan Rapp in Harlem: A Melodrama of Negro Life in Harlem, and the infamous collaboration of Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston in Mule Bone: A Comedy of Negro Life, the Harlem Renaissance era was a time of flourishing inter-arts collaborations under-examined in contemporary criticism. This panel therefore welcomes papers about the inter-arts collaborations of the Harlem Renaissance inspired by the SAMLA 87 theme, In Concert: Literature and the Other Arts.
