Laura Ingalls Wilder: Critical Perspectives

Since 1932, when Laura Ingalls Wilder published her first novel, Little House in the Big Woods, Americans have been fascinated by Wilder's representation of the American frontier and pioneer life. That fascination has been renewed with the 2014 publication of Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiography. Edited by Pamela Smith Hill and published by the South Dakota Historical Society, Pioneer Girl offers readers a view into Wilder's life and her writing process. Hill's introduction and extensive annotations, intended at least in part for an academic audience, allow readers to see Wilder, her life, and her career in context.

Call for Presentations 2016

Monday 5th September – Wednesday 7th September 2016
Mansfield College, Oxford, United Kingdom

For the patient's position in the therapeutic relationship to be reconfigured, perhaps the healthcare professional's position needs to be likewise explored and reconsidered. For patienthood to be compatible with personhood, professionalism too may need to be compatible with personhood.

Transgressive Filmmakers and Their Films

Film & History: An Interdisciplinary Journal

This is a CFP for Film & History Conference. 26-30 October 2016
The Hilton Milwaukee; Milwaukee, WI, USA

DEADLINE for abstracts: June 1, 2016

Cinematic transgression is about directors challenging or overcoming the status quo in their films, most often through shock and shlock to wake slumbering viewers with (sometimes hidden) social commentary. While each generation has spawned new notions or means of transgression in film, some have remained constant: sex, violence, gore, sacrilege, drugs, race, gender performance, etc. These films frequently are made by a director who is also an embodiment of transgression, whether or not they work within the mainstream system.

(Update) Call for Abstracts for Critical Insights: Civil Rights

Christopher Allen Varlack (University of Maryland, Baltimore County)

From its flawed notion of "separate but equal" to the rampant violence against black bodies throughout the twentieth century, the United States faced a clear racial divide perpetuated by its Jim Crow culture and the disenfranchisement of blacks. In response, on August 28, 1963, noted American civil rights activist, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., delivered his iconic "I Have a Dream" speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, urging radical social and political change in a society marred by a rich history of segregation and discrimination. Since then, we have recognized this speech as a symbol of the enduring struggle for equal civil rights and the pursuit of the core values upon which the United States was based.

[UPDATE] Postcolonial Shakespeares - CFP for Postcolonial Interventions Vol I, Issue 2 -

Postcolonial Interventions: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Postcolonial Studies ISSN 2455 6564

2016 marks the quartercentenary of Shakespeare's death and the upcoming issue of Postcolonial Interventions will focus on the continued relevance of multiple Shakespeares in the culture-scape of the postcolonial world. Not only were Shakespearean plays shaped in many ways by colonial discourses, especially discourses of racial difference, but Shakespearean plays also initially functioned as those "signs taken for wonders" through which the colonial administrators sought to consolidate imperial hegemony, as evident from such critical works as Post-Colonial Shakespeares (1999).

Problems We Can Name: Subverting Domesticity Past and Present
A Reader

"I make these lists [of books] but when on earth will I ever get a chance to read these? Since having kids, instead of reading I do something with them or for them or clean up. I always have this sense of domestic responsibility that makes reading feel self-indulgent but that's ridiculous,"- Jennifer Egan
