Film and media adaptations have frequently projected an alternate cinematic world on screen that re-imagines the past and future. Movies (Blade Runner, The Quiet American), TV shows (Sherlock, Agent Carter), and digital ‘new media’ series—increasingly streamed and ‘binge watched’ on Netflix (House of Cards) and Amazon (The Man in the High Castle)—have been inspired by a variety of fiction novels, short stories, plays, comics, graphic novels, and historical works of nonfiction, memoirs (Bridge of Spies) or documentary (Jazz on a Summer’s Day) cine-essays that mediate and reframe history to portray an alternate worldview which re-imagines the past and anticipates a vision of future events.

Reprobate Humanisms in Early Modern England

It would be difficult to disentangle fully the various strands of religious reform in early modern England from the educational, aesthetic, and philosophical movements that fall under the broad term 'humanism'.  Nevertheless, the relationship between religious reform and new developments in various humanist projects was not always peaceful. The tensions between humanism and religious reform provoke many questions:  Where were the lines of fracture in the symbiotic relationship between religious reform and the humanisms of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries in England? Did religious reform restrict the development of humanism in England, or did it promote a new flourishing of humanism?

Listening to Trauma: Insights & Actions

The study of trauma, Judith Herman points out, has a history of “episodic amnesia.” Knowledge gained is periodically forgotten and must be persistently reclaimed. After almost 15 years of combat in the Middle East and of rising attention to a broad range of stressful events, American culture, its media, academics and clinicians have become increasingly responsive to the diverse nature and complexity of traumatic experience.

A Hot Thing: Black Female Sexualities Reimagined -- SAMLA Nov. 4-6, 2016

Across genres and eras, black women's bodies have existed as hypersexualized sites of desire and objects of inequality. This can be observed from the Hottentot Venus to the minstrel trope of the jezebel to the video vixens of hip-hop. In Black Looks: Race and Representation, bell hooks states that "When race and ethnicity become commodified as resources for pleasure, the culture of specific groups, as well as the bodies of individuals, can be seen as constituting an alternative playground where members of dominating races, genders, sexual practices affirm their power-over in intimate relations with the Other." Yet today there are departures from these power relations wherein black women have seized agency through their sexuality.

The frontier emerged as an important critical concept for an understanding of American history over a hundred years ago, and its status has changed from a celebrated catchphrase to explain away the perplexities of American identity, through an F-word not tolerated in the progressive circles, leading finally to a rehabilitated, more inclusive use. Its variations include terms such as periphery, edge, and borderland, and the very proliferation of the term suggests that its provocative character still inspires critics and artists in the Americas today. The purpose of this conference is to explore the borderlands between critical theory and other ways of interpretative thinking, such as art.

Panelists, The Anthropocene, SLSA (Society for Literature, Science, and the Arts) Conference, Atlanta, GA, Nov. 3-6, 2016

Seeking SLSA members interested in putting together a panel or roundtable on the Anthropocene for the 2016 meeting in Atlanta. The theme of the conference is "creativity," including the theme of "creating environments." That is exactly what the Anthropocene names: The creation of a distinctively human-marked form of the planet's environment. The panel might offer analysis of the history, textuality, and criticism of the Anthropocene. More specifically, the idea of the Anthropocene involves posthumanist notions of creativity, in which the collective actions of our species produce a form or a reality without a creator or a singular agent. We might discuss the Anthropocene as a kind of hive or swarm creation, then.
