Eastern and Western Synergies and Imaginations, an edited volume in a forthcoming Brill series East and West: Culture, Diplomacy and Interactions, is now inviting submissions.

The age of gobalisation has witnessed, and is witnessing, increasing activities across border and interactions between nations, especially between the East and the West. Multi-dimensional communication and collaboration between the East and the West from the Age of Sail to the Modern Era are often narrated and re-created in print and on stage.

I Am Already Dead: Essays on The CW's iZombie and Vertigo's iZOMBIE [Contracted with McFarland Publishers] (UPDATE)

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

Editors Szanter and Richards seek original essays for an edited collection on Rob Thomas’s television series iZombie as well as the show’s graphic novel source material, Roberson and Allred’s iZOMBIE. This particular series has begun to overhaul modern constructions of the zombie in popular culture and media. While scholarship on the television zombie is not in short supply, particularly in regards to AMC’s The Walking Dead, we believe this particular show and comic series speak to a growing trend in zombie culture whereby the zombie “passes” as human—fully assimilating into normalized society.

Louis Owens (1948-2002) was one of the major voices of contemporary Native American literature and scholarship. His work includes five acclaimed novels, scholarly studies, and some one hundred essays.  The extensive oeuvre Owens produced includes writing on themes of mixed-blood identities, working-class life, travel, western American landscapes, the environment, survivance, tricksters, story-telling, and memory.  Owens was a scholar of international stature on John Steinbeck, a writer whose realism strongly influenced his own fiction.

New Approaches to Gertrude Stein's THREE LIVES

Monday, August 1, 2016 - 2:30pm
Corinne E. Blackmer / Southern Connecticut State University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

Since its publication in 1909, Gertrude Stein’s Three Lives has been, unlike much of Stein’s other works, the object of academic interest and artistic commentary, appropriation, and criticism. Stein herself more than once complained about people continually wishing her to write “another ‘Melanctha,’” while others have judged this work as everything from an ideological racist screed to the most sensitive and sympathetic portrait of an African American woman of its time. This panel seeks to encourage new critical perspectives on what remains Stein’s most popular and widely read and studied work of shorter fiction.

Have you ever read a review of a comic or graphic novel on a website and felt like you were only reading a book report? How many of you noticed an article in an academic journal that focused on one of your favorite graphic novels, but it ended up glossing over – or completely forgetting – to mention aspects of the art and dryly deconstructed the narrative?
