CFP: Disney and Its Worlds for PAMLA Conference 2017 Honolulu, Hawaii (11/10-12/2017)

updated:

Jeremiah Axelrod, Institute for the Study of Los Angeles, Occidental College
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 21, 2017

From the Frankfurt School to contemporary cultural studies, the social ramifications of Disney movies and theme parks, and their cultural penumbra, have long provided rich terrain for critical scholarly analysis. This panel explores the discursive, literary, filmic, and historical dimensions of the Disney phenomenon in both the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Papers that draw upon the rich canon of scholarship on Disney and engage with its cultural effects through critical theory, spatial or historical analysis, feminist methodologies, or close reading strategies are particularly encouraged. This session is also interested in papers that specifically focus on this year's theme of sight, visuality, and ways of seeing.

Transgender identities: questioning borders and binaries

updated: 
Monday, May 1, 2017 - 2:21pm
South Atlantic Modern Language Association 2017 Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 10, 2017

A growing awareness of transgender issues has exploded in recent years, especially after the high-profile gender reconstruction surgery of Caitlyn Jenner. The rising awareness has caused activism both for and against the transgender community, and forces us to question many of the binaries that permeate culture. Few issues question borders and transcend boundaries in as dramatic a fashion as current transgender concerns, so for the SAMLA 89 Conference, held in Atlanta, Ga from Nov 3-5, we are seeking abstracts exploring the conference theme of “Borders and Boundaries in Popular Culture” as expressed through a transgender lens.
