ANZSA 2018 Panel CFP: “Lend thy serious hearing”: Irreverence and Play in Shakespeare Adaptations

Four hundred years after William Shakespeare’s death, his work continues to not only fill playhouses around the world, but be adapted for various forms of popular culture, including film, television, online video, and comics/graphic novels. These adaptations introduce a whole new generation of audiences to the work of Shakespeare, and are often fun, playful, engaging, and “irreverent, broadly allusive, and richly reimagined takes on their source material” (Cartelli and Rowe, New Wave Shakespeare on Screen, 2007, 1).

 

CFP: The Handbook to Horror Literature: Select chapters needed

updated: 
Wednesday, April 5, 2017 - 5:22pm
Kevin Corstorphine and Laura Kremmel
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, April 30, 2017

Most handbooks on the subject of horror focus specifically on film, whereas books on the literary manifestations of horror tend to be bound to the idea of the “Gothic.” The current field of Gothic studies grows out of the study of Romanticism, and refers specifically to a late eighteenth-century genre, but has also come to denote a critical approach to literature, film, and culture, drawing on psychoanalysis, post structural criticism, feminist and queer theory. These perspectives are all to be included here, but the book responds to a growing sense that “horror” is itself a worthwhile focus of analysis.

Practicing Patience in the Middle Ages

updated: 
Monday, April 3, 2017 - 2:06pm
2018 New Chaucer Society Congress
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 24, 2017

Proposals for short presentations exploring the nature of medieval patience and its performance in secular and devotional contexts are invited for a session at the New Chaucer Society Congress at the University of Toronto from July 10-15, 2018.  Patience is a complex and even paradoxical virtue. It intersects with agency and, to borrow Sara Ahmed’s term, willfulness, but it is also defined by restraint. It can describe an immediate response and/or a sustained practice. It involves affect as well as intellect. It exists on a continuum (someone can have no, little, or much patience), yet it exhibits a tipping point (when it runs out or is lost). 

English I: English Literature Before 1800 -- MMLA 2017

updated: 
Monday, April 3, 2017 - 2:06pm
MMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, April 5, 2017

In line with the MMLA 2017 conference theme of Art and Activism, the English I permanent section seeks papers that explore how literature or culture before 1800 represent political action or serve to produce (or at least gesture towards) political action. We define political in the most broad terms possible and welcome submissions that explore ideology, the economy, political strategies for individual advancement, social change, religion, political commentary, and the politics of the reception of literature.  Please send a 300-word abstract and a brief vita to fb1941@wayne.edu by April 5, 2017.
