[UPDATE] EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY CROSSOVERS: GENDER, GENRE, GEOGRAPHY (Edited Collection)

Sonia Sahoo and Ramit Samaddar Centre for Advanced Study in English, Jadavpur University, Kolkata, India

Our proposed collection aims to explore the meanings of crossover in the eighteenth century. The concept of crossover grew out of the uneasy reconcilement between the era's belief in the absoluteness of taxonomical categories and its paradoxical insistence on the potential malleability and manipulability of the same. Sweeping changes in the cultural scene challenged the seeming discreteness between conceptual kinds, and unleashed the possibility of transcending boundaries of all sorts.

The Fantastic: Positions from Another World

"The fantastic is . . . a product of human imagination, perhaps even an excess of imagination. It arises when laws thought to be absolute are transcended, in the borderland between life and death, the animate and the inanimate, the self and the world . . . The fantastic is the unexpected occurrence, the startling novelty which goes contrary to all our expectations of what is possible. The ego multiplies and splits, time and space are distorted."
― Franz Rottensteiner, The Fantasy Book: An Illustrated History From Dracula To Tolkien

The last fifteen years have seen substantial changes in the way scholars have engaged with US literature and culture. In particular, the rise of two methodological paradigms, TRANSNATIONALISM and PRINT CULTURE STUDIES, have paved the way for exciting new approaches to key questions that have always been at the heart of the discipline: the relationship between literature and nationhood, the role of writing in international circuits of knowledge and commodity exchange, and the artistic labour of the author.

Pete Kunze | University of Texas at Austin

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.
