This proposed roundtable session will consider the challenges—technological, pedagogical, and practical—of creating a digital edition of a text specifically for use in the classroom. The absence of teaching editions of some texts, in particular those by women writers and writers of color, has become a growing concern for those who specialize in these authors. Editions may have gone out of print or only be available in expensive scholarly versions; meanwhile, publishers are hesitant to invest in texts that may not have a wide readership. This situation has some instructors struggling to use online versions that may not be easy to read or use, are rarely annotated, and are usually lacking contextual information.

Since Thilo Sarrazin’s controversial book Deutschland schafft sich ab was published in 2010, there has been an explosion of comedy and satire in Germany dealing with issues of immigration and integration, from sketches on established mainstream television programs such as the heute show to new productions such as Abdelkarim’s StandUp Migranten on ARD’s EinsPlus. With the recent debates surrounding comedian Jan Böhmermann’s satirical poem pillorying the Turkish president Recep Erdogan, the limits of satire and its political effects have also been the subject of widespread media attention.

Avid comic book fans sat appalled in theatres as Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel reached the climax of the film in which Superman kills his enemy Zod. Snyder’s film raises the question of whether this killing and the death of Zod could actually fit with Superman’s traditional moral compass. From Man of Steel to the CW’s Arrow and Flash series to the Avengers franchise, comic book characters are facing new ethical developments in their rejuvenation that both encompass and go beyond the idea of killing one’s enemy.

Special Issue Call for Papers WOMEN’S WRITING“Generations”Winter 2017 Issue

In honor of the 25th anniversary of the British Women Writers Association in 2017, Women’s Writing invites submissions for a special issue on the theme of “Generations.” While generational transitions are often productive and even revolutionary, they are seldom ever easy or smooth. Such transitions may be accompanied by paradigm shifts, struggles to be heard, or difficulty letting go. In this spirit, the editors especially welcome investigations into the complexities of generational exchange and transition in the field of women’s writing.

The Medieval and Renaissance Drama Society seeks three 20-minute presentations on

any aspect of medieval and early modern Dutch and Flemish drama for a session at the 2017

International Medieval Congress at Leeds.

We particularly encourage papers that focus on the 2017 IMC conference theme of

otherness. The Low Countries seems a particularly fruitful area of focus for this theme, as they

spent much of the Middle Ages as perpetual “others” with fluid boundaries and constant

Margaret Atwood Studies invites submissions of articles that focus on ageism and aging in Atwood’s works or in the works of both Atwood and other authors, such as Doris Lessing, another prolific and influential woman writer who examines these themes. This special issue aims to explore the ways these writers present the passing of time in relation to life experiences and self-consciousness. Articles might discuss the works’ depictions of what it means to come of age, how age and the aging process change how we see ourselves, when and how one becomes old, ways that gender affects the aging process, and how age discrimination shapes societies and individuals.Submissions due 1 September 2016.
