This panel aims to explore the complex, layered horizon of landscapes in horror film culture to understand the use that the horror genre makes of settings, locations, spaces, and places, be they physical, imagined, or altogether imaginary. Different theoretical frameworks are welcome, and relevant comparative studies among American, European, and/or non-Western cinema are strongly encouraged.

The Romantics era was rife with social and economic shifts and imbalances as the Industrial Revolution brought destruction to the natural world and further stratification of the classes. In this increasingly dystopian climate, Romantic authors often sought an idyllic nature in which to imbue their utopian views; as such, the Romantic imagination became a mechanism through which authors essentially deconstructed the dystopian world and created the utopian imagination. Conversely, the Romantics sometimes deconstructed the utopian environment as a means to express the dystopian imagination.

While adult book sales have been down for the past few years, sales of young adult titles have increased as much as 30% according to some reports. The turn of the millennium brought an explosion of YA sales with the most notable Harry Potter, Twilight, Hunger Games, and Divergent series. YA sections grew from a few shelves to prominent areas in libraries and major bookstores. In fact, a recent Pew Survey reported that 16-29 year-olds check out library books more than any other group.

From film noir to sci-fi, Terry Gilliam to David Lynch, dystopian narratives continue to hold a prominent place in film across independent, Hollywood, and international film communities. In keeping with the theme of authorship and audience, we seek papers addressing writing, directing, visual style, and performance in dystopian films. Papers on the work of David Lynch or other directors of dystopian films are encouraged, and we especially welcome papers that incorporate close readings of films.

Paper proposals addressing the SAMLA 88 theme are especially welcome; further topic ideas are listed below.

2016 marks the 500th anniversary of the first printing of Thomas More’s Utopia, the text that created and provided the name for its own genre.  Since the appearance of More’s text, utopias have been imagined as unreal realities and worlds where people exist according to a specific vision of an author, whose aim might be justice, art, or an imagined reality with a specific agenda. 

We request abstracts that address any aspect of early modern utopianism.  Please submit 250-300 word abstracts along with a brief bio or a one page C.V. by June 6, 2016 to: Dr. Ruth McIntyre, rmcinty1@kennesaw.edu.
