This panel seeks papers to discuss counternarratives, their limits and possibilities, and their relationship to histories of national belonging in contemporary U.S. ethnic fiction. Papers can also consider the extent to which U.S. ethnic fiction has played a role in producing counternarratives to "offical" histories.

Please send 250-word abstract and 1-page c.v. by 15 March 2015 to cassine1@illinois.edu; S. Moon Cassinelli

Nine of the ten highest-grossing Hollywood movies of 2014 were based on creative properties from children's and youth culture, including comic books, novels, and toys. In line with this year's theme of In Concert: Literature and the Other Arts, I welcome papers that examine adaptation, compare media (broadly defined), and/or explore transmedia storytelling. While papers on recent adaptations are particularly encouraged, this panel seeks a variety of new, productive perspectives on adapting children's and youth culture for various media, including film, television, and online media.

Objects of Global Media -- MLA 2016 (http://bit.ly/mla16objects)

What are the symptomatic objects of global media? Where are they? What characterizes the networks they circulate through, and what do their circulations (or lack thereof) tell us about questions of power, embodiment, law, temporality? What histories do they exist within, and how might they help us reimagine those histories more critically and productively? How might we see the stakes of global media culture differently if we rethink them around an object such as the earbud, the undersea cable, the SIM card, or the server rack?

John Dos Passos Society

John Dos Passos was undoubtedly one of the most eclectic American writers of his generation. Faithful as he was to the intermedial aesthetics of modernism, he did not limit himself to the role of novelist, but frequently also crossed over into the neighboring arts: as an accomplished painter and illustrator, as a playwright and sometime set designer for the New Playwrights Theatre, and through his work on Hollywood cinema and documentary film. The resulting cross-pollination would fuel Dos Passos's creativity over the years, influencing his most celebrated novels.

Weird South (MLA 2016)

The Society for the Study of Southern Literature

The south has long been tied to adjective "weird," and not just in Austin, Texas. As a slogan that began as a way to promote local businesses, the idea of "keeping ________ weird," resonates with representational practices, economic structures, and counter-cultural mystique. But what does it mean to be weird in a region that already seems to be a repository for weirdness? And how does one talk about the "weird," without re-inscribing southern exceptionalism? This panel invites papers that recover, examine, interrogate, and theorize the weird south. All approaches and archives are welcome as we attempt to make sense of the relationship between the weird and the southern.
