Identity, Ontology, and Existences (Inaugural Issue)

updated: 
Sunday, August 6, 2017 - 7:50pm
Journal of Identity, Ontology, and Existences
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 31, 2018

Journal of Identity, Ontology, and Existences is an OA journal. We plan on publishing an issue three times per year, and we'll be accepting papers on a regular basis (January, July, and November). Our first issue will be set to publish at the end of January in 2018. 

The core focus will be on the exploration and investigation of the concepts found in the title of the journal, with some interdisciplinary-ness. Hence, possible topics include, but are certainly not limited to:

Hollywood F. Scott Fitzgerald

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

F. Scott Fitzgerald’s time in California remains under-researched. The MLA International Bibliography shows 50 scholarly works on The Last Tycoon, out of more than 2,300 scholarly works in that bibliography for just Fitzgerald. This session will explore Fitzgerald’s years in Hollywood, as a writer and as his works have been adapted. Submissions may consider works Fitzgerald wrote in California, including Tender Is the Night, The Last Tycoon, “The Pat Hobby Stories,” and his screenwriting for United Artists, MGM, and freelance, as well as his estrangement with Zelda, his alcoholism, and his death. Submissions that consider adaptations of Fitzgerald’s works for film are also welcome.

Literary Architecture Revisited

updated: 
Friday, August 4, 2017 - 2:41pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA 2018)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

Following Ellen Eve Frank's Literary Architecture (1979), this panel seeks historically-situated papers that investigate the narrative capabilities of architecture, particularly lived-in architecture. Taking Frank's principle question of how architecture can embody consciousness within literature, this panel expands the scope of her analysis. Although the “spatial turn” in literary studies has produced a great response, its focus regarding architecture specifically as a constructed form that interprets a given space is somewhat lacking. This panel invites projects that work to close that gap and produce a discussion that maps out connections between constructed spaces and the self.

Intersex in Literature, Film, and Visual Culture

updated: 
Friday, August 4, 2017 - 2:28pm
American Comparative Literature Association, Los Angeles, 03/29-04/01,2018
deadline for submissions:

In her 2009 introduction to Critical Intersex, Morgan Holmes posits that intersex can never be “reduced to a pure, embodied state nor to a simple, cultural render in which ‘intersex’ is whatever we want it to be.” “‘Intersex’ then,” she continues, “is hailed by specific and competing interests, and is a sign constantly under erasure, whose significance always carried the trace of an agenda from somewhere else.” This seminar seeks to address intersex in relation to these “elsewheres” in literature, film, and visual studies. We encourage submissions that critically consider intersex in a broad range of texts, time periods, and genres, as a way of promoting and fostering a burgeoning field of “intersex studies.”

REMINDER ABSTRACTS DUE: 11/01/2017The Theme

As researchers, no matter our subject, we commit ourselves to a process of generating, analysing and debating ideas. In working towards completion, we continue to gather and negotiate an increasing number of ideas, always looking to constellate them in rich and innovative ways. As these constellations expand and contract, as the ideas fall in and out of view, the documents we retain begin to record a far more expansive sphere of possibility than can be accounted for in a single thesis.

Techniques & Perspectives on the Analysis of Film

updated: 
Saturday, August 5, 2017 - 7:10pm
Under the Light
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 28, 2018

Under the Light is focused mostly on discussing and reviewing indie and foreign films, but we are not limited to this. We'd like to create a sort of guide on how to approach films when analyzing and reviewing them (where the analysis or review will be academic in scope). There are books out there on this already, but we'd like to have more genre-specific papers for our guide. Here are just some possibilities:

  • The aesthetics of the grotesque in horror film
  • Looking at a foreign film through the lens of the respective culture and society
  • Psychoanalysis and film
  • Film as ecocriticism; ecology within film

 

Articles can be more general than this, or maybe even more specific (but just slightly so).
