Call for Papers -- "Embracing the Other" (a seminar at the ICLA, Vienna, July 2016) Submission Deadline, Aug. 31, 2015

In the past two decades, universities, organizations, and businesses around the western world have placed a great emphasis on celebrating diversity, welcoming members, students, faculty, and employees from different ethnic, religious, gender, sexual, or national identities. Based on such developments, the "other"—as the person belonging to some minority group who had been ostracized in the greater part of the 20th century—has been welcomed from the margins of society to its very center.

Marquez and Literatures from India- 12 July 2015

Dr. Amith Kumar P V, Dept. of Comparative Literature and India Studies, EFL-University, Hyderabad, India

As the prophet of magic realism and an extraordinary satirist of political dictatorship, Gabriel Garcia Marquez's literary horizons are incomprehensibly vast, and the rigorous intensity of his writings is inexplicably multidimensional. Marquez challenges the luminal line between 'story' and 'history', and interrogates the public and private domain with an uncommon and effortless ease and clarity. He fuses the chaotic and the cosmic, the materialistic and the mystical, and invites us to participate in a magico-historical narrative of which he is an undisputed craftsman.

We seek submissions for a collection of new examinations of settler colonialism as expressed and developed through literature or other "texts" (including films, historical documents, art, architecture, music, maps, and advertisements, among other types of texts). We are particularly interested in submissions that approach these texts as articulations of transnational connections developed by ways of settler migration and/or colonial displacement.

Call for Submissions to a Special Issue of the Journal of Popular Film and Television on Holmes Onscreen (Tentative Title)

Tom Ue, Department of English, University College London

Heralded by The Telegraph as a 'global phenomenon,' BBC's Sherlock is now one of the most commercially and critically successful television series of all time. The global recognition of Sherlock, combined with the recent discovery of Arthur Berthelet's 1916 silent film Sherlock Holmes starring William Gillette in his only screen appearance as the famous sleuth, makes it especially timely for film scholars, students, and audiences to reassess the cultural legacy of Holmes onscreen. Forthcoming work by Hills (2016) and Poore (2016) argue strongly for Holmes as a continuing source of scholarly interest, spurring us to look at Holmes' filmic lives.
