Recent turns in psychoanalytic criticism cast individuals as more porous—more permeable to the feelings or psychoses of others—than traditional humanism usually allows. Theorists engaged with this affective turn wrestle with questions of how the "feeling of feelings," or affects, flow freely between individuals—especially when individuals are found in groups. "The Affects of Cities," a special session of the 2014 Conference of the Midwest Modern Language Association, themed "The Lives of Cities," proposes to explore and discuss affect and affective transmission specifically in urban environments.

Spring 2015 Issue - Alfred Hitchcock

Guest Editor: Michael Howarth

This special issue will focus on Alfred Hitchcock, the "master of suspense" whose career spanned from the 1920s to the 1970s. Hitchcock produced and directed over fifty motion pictures, in addition to hosting two anthology series on television.

His film craftsmanship is still relevant today, as his influence is continuously cited by contemporary filmmakers and he is regularly taught in cinema classes.

Call for Papers: "Broken Narratives"- Graduate Student Conference-Ohio State University-Saturday 11th Oct, 2014

Broken narratives abound in literary and cultural history. Serialized literary works, serial television, fragmented novels, and shuffle literature are among the many forms that use brokenness as a resource for unfolding narratives. The eclectic nature and the many avatars of "broken narratives" make them valuable sites for comparative studies. Arguably, brokenness remains integral to certain textual forms more than others: Segmentation and sequentiality, for instance, are identified as key to the comic form (McCloud) as well as narrative poetry (McHale; DuPlessis) and television series (O'Sullivan).

«È noto che all'inizio di nuove tradizioni di lingua scritta e letteraria, fin dove possiamo spingere lo sguardo, sta molto spesso la traduzione: sicché al vulgato superbo motto idealistico in principio fuit poëta vien fatto di contrapporre oggi l'umile realtà che in principio fuit interpres, il che significa negare nella storia l'assolutezza o autoctonia di ogni cominciamento.» (Gianfranco Folena, Volgarizzare e tradurre, Torino, Einaudi, 1994)
