The Institute of Literary and Artistic Communication in Nitra, Slovakia launches new international scholarly magazine Art Communication & Popculture covering domains of art, art communication and popculture. The ambition of the magazine is to offer a space for scholarly reflection of problems of actual art communication in all forms of art and popculture. The concept of the magazine Art Communication & Popculture is the reflection of the need to create a theoretical platform for investigation of the world of which protomethodological basis is knowledge that a purpose is not a quality situated outside but as inherent attribute.

Sequels, Serials, and Remakes: Recycling Fictions in the Fantastic Sphere

updated: 
Thursday, October 23, 2014 - 10:17am
College of St. Joseph

Repetitive narratives are at the heart of popular fantastic culture; we need look no further than the many sequels of _Friday the 13th_ or the serialization of the early 20th-century French villains Fantomas as evidence. With this repetitive pattern as an organizing principle, the College of St. Joseph is seeking presenters for its 4th annual popular culture conference, held April 10-11th in Rutland, VT. Papers can explore any of the repeating manifestations of fantasy/horror/science fiction in popular culture: film, television, novels, pulp magazines, or other medium. Topics for the presentations are equally as inclusive: everything from close readings of _Seed of Chucky_ to stylometric analysis to cultural discussion of fan sequels are encouraged.

CRIME UNCOVERED: The Detective (edited by Barry Forshaw)

Marc Edward Shaw / Hartwick College; Holly Welker / Writer & editor

The official reaction of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to The Book of Mormon, the musical from Matt Stone and Trey Parker of South Park and Robert Lopez of Avenue Q, consists of a single sentence: "The production may attempt to entertain audiences for an evening, but the The Book of Mormon as a volume of scripture will change people's lives forever by bringing them closer to Christ."

The Graduate Center-CUNY English Student Association Conference: Trance
March 5-6 2015

This conference seeks to bring together critical and imaginative forms of scholarship, workshops, performance and other creative work around ideas of trance. From the Great Awakening's irruptive glossalia to the glossed eyes of late capitalist workers, from various manifestations of trance dance to the moving spiral, trance is woven into the fabrics of spiritual, theological, political, and literary histories, texts and methodologies. Trance not only challenges Enlightenment models of knowledge production, but also forces us to navigate extra-linguistic experience, thus destabilizing language as epistemological ground.
