I seek two other papers for a panel on the alternately symbiotic and antagonistic relationship between Broadway and Hollywood--as entertainment industries, cultural destinations, and/or aesthetics. The circulation of talent and content between Broadway and Hollywood obviously has a long and complex history, from Hollywood's poaching of Broadway talent during the early sound era to its bankrolling of Broadway shows as early as the 1930s.

In contemporary studies of the Middle Ages, questions of visuality have increasingly dominated analyses of artistic production, in part because of the central role of vision in medieval theological and scientific discourse. This session seeks to broaden the conversation around medieval visuality by asking not only what it meant to see in the Middle Ages, but also what it meant to be seen, and how these networks of viewership could be depicted in the pictorial arts, literature, architecture, music, and drama.

This special issue of Knowledge Cultures (http://www.addletonacademicpublishers.com/knowledge-cultures) seeks to generate new and potentially disruptive conversations about creativity by paying attention to the diversity – and, perhaps, even, incommensurability – of knowledge practices around creativity that exist across a broad range of disciplinary fields.

Gilbert. […] just as artistic creation implies the working of the critical faculty, and, indeed, without it cannot be said to exist at all, so Criticism is really creative in the highest sense of the word.
