COMICS/FANDOM

University of Cologne, 28/03/2019 – 29/03/2019

 

Considering how crucially comic book marketing depends on loyal customers, especially fans, and to how great an extent the ever-expanding franchises surrounding Marvel’s or DC’s comic worlds rely on user participation and fandom, it seems striking that the connection between Comics Studies and Fan Studies has hardly been explored in any great detail so far.

Experimental Narrative in Nonfiction (Part II)

updated: 
Monday, October 15, 2018 - 12:32pm
International Society for the Study of Narrative
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, December 10, 2018

The proposed panel aims to build on enthusiasm for the “Experimental Narrative in Nonfiction” panel, held at the ISSN conference in 2018. It will continue to explore how and why nonfiction uses “experimental or unnatural devices,” and the differences that obtain when such devices are used in nonfiction as opposed to fiction.

Ecologies

MARGINS Conference 2019
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, December 1, 2018

Conference Theme

In 2005, Jenny Rice suggested that we might move away from notions of rhetorical discourse as situated in a fixed place and time, with a specific aim and audience, towards an ecological view of rhetoric, where circulating texts transform rhetors, audiences, spaces, and events. Like biological ecologies, rhetorical ecologies are fluid rather than fixed, permeable rather than bounded. The Clemson University English Department invites graduate students from all disciplines to join us as we explore ecologies at the 2019 Margins Conference.

Survivor Stories: Challenging Our Rape Culture Together

 

In the last few months survivors’ efforts have been mobilized by efforts around the Me Too Movement, Time’s Up efforts, and, most recently, the Brett Kavanaugh appointment to the Supreme Court. Right now survivors’ voices are being heard at protest rallies, speak outs, and academic conferences across the country.

The conference, Educating the Global Citizen – International Perspectives on Foreign Language Teaching in the Digital Age, takes place on 25th – 28th March 2019 and is inviting paper submissions.

In times of rapid and unprecedented global sociocultural change, urgent calls are being made for salient educational responses to current global and digital challenges. Such calls are being met in (re)formulations of global (citizenship) education, sustainability education, and service learning, which endeavor to promote a democratic and human rights culture in schools and the larger community.

Open Section

In the fall of 2019, CLOSURE will once again offer a forum for all facets of comics studies. From literary, cultural, media, social and image research to the sciences and beyond: the sixth edition of CLOSURE  continues our ongoing search for the best and most innovative articles and reviews representing the state of the art in comics research. We welcome detailed close readings as much as comics theory and pioneering approaches to the medium — our open section comprises a diverse range of interdisciplinary studies of all things ›comic‹.

After Beckett

updated: 
Wednesday, October 10, 2018 - 4:00pm
Comparative Drama Conference (April 4-6, 2019 in Orlando)
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, October 31, 2018

Three decades after his death in 1989, Samuel Beckett remains one of the most influential figures in modern and contemporary drama. This panel seeks to examine plays written “after Beckett”: that is, plays written since 1989 which stage an intertextual conversation with one or more of Beckett’s plays. I will be presenting a paper on Antoinette Nwandu’s 2017 play Pass Over. I am looking for two additional papers to complete the panel.

Theology of Marilynne Robinson in a Postsecular Age

updated: 
Monday, October 15, 2018 - 3:39pm
American Literature Association (Boston; May 2019)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, January 31, 2019

Marilynne Robinson has written widely-acclaimed novels and essays that explore the relationship between religion and culture.   Marilynne Robinson Society at the 2019 American Literature Association (ALA) Conference is soliticing proposals that examine how recent developments in post-secular studies can illuminate Robinson’s religious vision. Jurgen Habermas, Talal Asad, Charles Taylor, Jared Hickman, Tracy Fessensden, among other scholars, have led us to reconsider the secularization thesis and the ways in which it has shaped narratives of modernity. We ask how Robinson’s investigation of faith is especially relevant to the growing field of postsecular studies.
