NC State University

We are seeking essays for an edited collection titled Rethinking Globalization and Spatial Scale. The goal of the volume is to bring together interdisciplinary research on globalization spanning the humanities and social sciences that foregrounds theoretical and methodological conceptualizations of scale—how people, capital, goods, material infrastructure, ideas, and power aggregate along or slide among different degrees or levels of attachment, from personal to local to national to transnational.

Nine of the ten highest-grossing Hollywood movies of 2014 were based on creative properties from children's and youth culture, including comic books, novels, and toys. In line with this year's theme of In Concert: Literature and the Other Arts, I welcome papers that examine adaptation, compare media (broadly defined), and/or explore transmedia storytelling. While papers on recent adaptations are particularly encouraged, this panel seeks a variety of new, productive perspectives on adapting children's and youth culture for various media, including film, television, and online media.

Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association

The children's literature session of PAMLA 2015 invites your proposal on any theme or topic of study pertaining to children's literature and culture. We welcome engaging, provocative analyses of children's literature and texts (including graphic novels, comic books, video games, and/or films). Proposals attending to the conference theme "Literature and Time" are especially welcome.

The 2015 PAMLA conference special topic, "Literature and Time," is an invitation to reflect on the complex temporalities that inhere in the acts of reading and writing literature. We invite paper proposals that engage with the topic of literary temporalities, children, and children's literature in a variety of ways.

Topics may include but are not limited to:

CounterText: A Journal for the Study of the Post-Literary -- Rolling CFP

CounterText; Edinburgh University Press

CounterText is uniquely centred on the study of literature and its 21st-century extensions. Are the broader resonances of the literary being overtaken in the drifts towards image cultures, digital spaces, globalisation and technoscientific advances? For CounterText, the post-literary is the domain in which any artefact that might have some claim on the literary appears. However, the post-literary domain also allows for vital and challenging migrations and mutations of the literary. Such artefacts might be called 'countertextual'. The countertextual is strategic, metamorphic and revelatory of the charged evolutions and radical transformations of the literary today.

[UPDATE] Pastoral Sciences, MMLA (Columbus, OH, Nov. 12-15, 2015)

Midwest Modern Language Association (MMLA)

In 1964's The Machine in the Garden Leo Marx introduces the concept of technological pastoral, a space constructed to join modern industry to the ideals of rural harmony. While Marx's own historical reference point may have been the suburban "middle landscape," his notion of technological pastoral can lead into a more general understanding of how science has been mobilized in the pursuit of pastoral ideals. Examples of such mobilizations may range from ecosystem management and experiments with closed ecological systems (like biospheres) to theoretical applications such as terraforming. Virtual utopias may provide even another axis of analysis, as might some branches of bionics and bioengineering.

Queer Poetics - PAMLA 2015 (Portland, OR, 11/6-8); Proposal 5/15

Ryan Sullivan

This panel seeks papers that consider what it might mean to think about poetics in relation to queer studies—specifically scholars who are working with queer studies in conjunction with historical poetics, the history of poetic criticism, and lyric theory. Rather than papers that read poetry by queer writers or read queerness in poetry, this panel is looking for work that thinks more about what it means to write poetry as a queer person, about how that poetry circulates in the world, and how that poetry is read and received. Keeping with the conference theme, papers that think about poetics in relation to queer questions of time, temporality and history are particularly encouraged.

I'm happy to answer any questions.

Revolutionary Little Magazines, Panel for MSA Conference, Boston, Nov. 19th-22nd, 2015

updated: 
Friday, April 3, 2015 - 5:51pm
Modernist Studies Association Conference

In keeping with the conference theme of Modernism & Revolution, this panel seeks to explore modernism's little magazines as sites of provocation and revolt. The magazine communities were hotbeds of controversial figures and politics, and their publications challenged national programs and social mores via radical ideologies and aesthetics. Of particular interest to this panel is the interplay between their innovative experimental aesthetics and their cultural, social, and political interests that included socialism, anarchy, feminism, women's suffrage, sex, race, nationalism, militarization and labor. Panel papers might focus on The Crisis, The Dial, The Freewoman, The Little Review, The Messenger, The Others, The Liberator, The Masses—to name a few.
