[UPDATE] Joyce and Pornography (SAMLA)—Durham, NC, Nov. 13-15, 2015 [DEADLINE EXTENDED: JUNE 15]

updated: 
Thursday, June 4, 2015 - 12:50pm
International James Joyce Foundation

James Joyce and Nora Barnacle's visible sexuality is well documented in their biographies. Gordon Bowker reports, "In Locarno, at the Pension Daheinm, Nora was enjoying herself […]. She relaxed by reading a book sent by Jim (probably Venus in Furs) by their favourite pornographer. 'I am very glad to get it, especially as it is by Masoch,' she wrote, and teased him with hints of flirtations by beginning one letter, 'Dear Cuckold.'" Leopold von Sacher-Masoch: from whom the term masochism is derived. The intertextual/autobiographical connections between James and Nora's sex lives, Masoch's Venus in Furs, and the sexual nature of Joyce's characters are impossible to ignore.

EDITED COLLECTION

Adaptation studies has recently grown into a vibrant, wide-ranging field of study. Scholars in literary, media, and cultural studies have used the concepts of adaptation and intertextuality to explore how content negotiates the transition from text to image, image to text, and across media platforms and/or cultures of production and reception.

WLA Proposal: Critical and Creative Approaches to Voyaging "Sans Trace" (Submission Deadline June 13, 2015)

Raul B. Moreno, University of South Dakota, for Western Literature Association, Reno, NV, Oct. 14-17, 2015

Ahead of this fall's 50th anniversary conference of the Western Literature Association, which coincides with the release of a feature-length documentary, Oregon filmmaker Ian McCluskey's Les Voyageurs Sans Trace (Mountainfilm, 2015), this panel's organizer seeks proposals for both critical and creative works that engage the story of the so-called French Trio of 1938. Alternatively, this panel may engage similar narratives of North American river-running, early outdoor recreation in the West, or other formative adventures marked by the elusive "traces" of bygone journeys—especially those fueled by "free-spirited risk-taking." For context, the following is adapted from the filmmaker's synopsis:

[DEADLINE EXTENDED: JUNE 6, 2015] Whose (French) Renaissance? RSA Boston, March 31 - April 2, 2016

updated: 
Wednesday, June 3, 2015 - 1:37pm
Renaissance Society of America

Complicating the notion of the 'French Renaissance,' this panel seeks papers that explore the dynamic relationship between Italian artists and their French patrons, audiences, and counterparts in the fifteenth- and sixteenth-century courts of Charles VIII, Francis I, Henry II and Henry IV. We are interested in investigations into the ways in which these artists realized their royal commissions by participating in, subverting, and creating artistic dialogues. Rather than simply importing visual language, humanist discourses, and artistic debates into French contexts, Italian artists and their French patrons mediated different processes of material, contextual, and formal translations.

{UPDATE] [DEADLINE EXTENDED: July 1] Radical Kinship

updated: 
Wednesday, June 3, 2015 - 12:53pm
Tufts Graduate Humanities Conference

Keynote: Omise'eke Tinsley, University of Texas at Austin
Conference Date: October 16, 2015

Kinships that cross boundaries often entail radical decenterings of family, community, or subjectivity. What happens
when Yellow Peril supports Black Power in Ferguson? When Maggie Simpson holds up a Je Suis Charlie sign?
When, in a single frame, Kordale and Kaleb dismantle stale notions of Black masculinity, queerness, and
fatherhood?
Can we undomesticate kinship?
