Shawna Rushford-Spence/ MMLA

With the theme of "Border States" in mind, we welcome papers exploring the intersections between stubborn divisions and promising coalitions across lines of race, class, region, and nation in American literary texts produced before 1870. Possible topics might include: representations of border-crossing, migration and mobility, and/or troubled immigration; explorations of the cultural effects of urbanization and suburbanization, expansion, and/or technological innovation; the influence of literary texts on the cultural imagination and/or states of being and mind; the influence of "progress" on the literary imagination; and migrants and/or immigrants as characters in literary texts.

Keats in Popular Culture (Abstracts Due: June 15, 2016)

updated: 
Thursday, March 17, 2016 - 1:15pm
Brian Bates/Cal Poly State University, San Luis Obispo

Abstracts are invited for an essay collection, Keats in Popular Culture.

Although Keats's literary legacy and influence on Victorian, Modernist and Post-Modernist literature has been explored in some depth, his impact on popular culture—particularly in the 21st century—has yet to be fleshed out. This collection seeks essays that examine Keats's significant presence in film, television, music, comics, video games, memes, science fiction, architecture and design, matters of taste, cultural criticism, popular science, psychology and philosophy.

Interested parties, please send 500-word abstracts by June 15, 2016 to Brian Bates at brbates@calpoly.edu.

EXTENDED DEADLINE: CFP for Edited Collection: New Readings of the Medieval Robin Hood Tales

Mikee Delony, PhD and Perry Neil Harrison

The 2013 publication of Thomas Ohlgren and Lister Matheson's Early Rymes of Robyn Hood: An Edition of the Texts, ca. 1425-1600 provides new opportunities for scholars to reread and reconsider the earliest Robin Hood rhymes and plays. Scholars now have access to the extant manuscripts of the late medieval ballads as well as two early plays. Now that these early texts are readily available—some for the first time—it is time for scholars of a wide range of interests and backgrounds to return to the medieval rhymes with the aid of this significant new resource that allows for truly in-depth analysis of the source materials.

Roots at 40: Reflections and Remembrances, October 6-7, 2017

Goodwin College

In the final week of January, 1977, the ABC miniseries Roots became the most-watched television program of all time. To the surprise of the show's producers, Roots became not only a ratings windfall, but a cultural phenomenon, articulating an African-American counter-narrative of American history, provoking a dialogue about the legacy of slavery, and presenting African-American characters with a dignity and integrity that differed sharply from the caricatured representations common to television up to that time. In many ways, the response to the show by the media and the general public constitutes the first of many "conversations about race" that have punctuated the Post-Civil Rights era.

What approaches to teaching writing contribute to interdisciplinarity and illustrate innovative uses of text to that end?
