CfP: Translated Memories: Transgenerational Perspectives in Literature on the Holocaust

We are looking for abstracts for a follow-up publication to the colloquium "Translated Memories" that took place at the Steinheim Institute in Essen, Germany, on July 14, 2015, which addressed the subject of writing about the Holocaust today: How can memories of the Holocaust be constituted and transformed in a transgenerational and transnational perspective?

The concept of translation is of pivotal interest in this context. When talking about "translation," we literally mean code switching. However, the term "translation" is also appropriate if one wants to describe psychological mechanisms and cultural processes.

This panel seeks presentations that consider the role of objects in the production and study of Restoration and eighteenth-century drama. How might a consideration of the physical and material conditions of performance shed light on the texts through which we so often engage with the drama? What do textual artifacts reveal about production practices or even specific performances? Please e-mail 300-word abstracts to abender@twu.edu.

[UPDATE] Lacan and Philosophy (ACLA 2016, March 17 -20, Harvard University)

Todd McGowan (University of Vermont)/Gautam Basu Thakur (Boise State U)

2015 marks the 40th anniversary of a controversial talk that Jacques Lacan gave at MIT. Lacan's audience came expecting a discussion of psychoanalytic theory and practice, but what they heard didn't fit within the confines of psychoanalysis. This produced much disappointment among audience members. On this anniversary, we propose to return to the question of where Lacan's thought belongs. Specifically, we want to consider Lacan as a philosopher and in relation to other philosophers. Though Lacan himself constantly emphasized his distance from philosophers like Kant, Hegel, Sartre, and Merleau-Ponty, recent thinkers inspired by Lacan have seen himself, despite his stated intentions, as Kantian, Hegelian, or Sartrean.

Washington and Politics on Contemporary US Television (Edited Collection)

We are currently inviting submissions for 2-3 chapters for an edited collection on Washington and Politics on Contemporary US Television.

Television has been accommodating a bigger number of political narratives in the last years. From the dramatic "The West Wing," "Scandal," "Madame Secretary," "Homeland," "House of Cards," to the short-lived yet impressive "Boss," and "Commander in Chief" and the mini-series "Political Animals," as well as the comedic "Veep" and "The Brink," millennial TV is fraught with political plot lines that are edgier and more provocative than their filmic counterparts.

The Female American; or, The Adventures of Unca Eliza Winkfield – Perspectives, Intertextuality, Pedagogy (9/15/2015)

Women’s Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal

Women's Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal invites submissions for a special issue on The Female American; or, The Adventures of Unca Eliza Winkfield (1767), a recovered adventure novel featuring a biracial, female heroic protagonist. This previously neglected fiction of the Americas has received increasing critical and academic attention since its re-emergence in the late 1990s. The vibrant critical conversation focused on this text (which includes a critical edition, at least two dissertations, and many journal articles and book chapters) addresses gendered competence, agency, cultural valuation, racial variation, trans-Atlanticism, transdisciplinarity, and engagement with archetype and fantasy, among other topics.
