Kitty Millet, ICLA Research Committee on Religion, Ethics, and Literature

For the American Comparative Literature Association (ACLA) Conference, March 17-20, 2016, Harvard University

In 2014, "Religion, Ethics, and Literature" became a new research committee of the International Comparative Literature Association (ICLA). Its members adhere to a range of scholarly perspectives that represent not only philosophical, but also cultural divergences. While scholars within the group focus their attention on multiple literatures, their perspectives can be grouped under three basic positions, all of which depict how the faculties interact with each other because of the convergence of religion, ethics, and literature.

CALL FOR PAPERS

"HORROR"

37th Annual Conference of the Southwest Popular/American Culture Association (SWPACA) at the Hyatt Regency Hotel & Conference Center on
February 10-13, 2016
in Albuquerque, New Mexico

The area chair for Horror at the Southwest Popular/American Culture Association invites all interested scholars to submit papers on any aspect of horror in literature, film, television, digital and online media, as well as in general culture. Given the strong showing of work on horror cinema in recent years, we hope to continue this tradition, but also to diversify into new and unconventional areas, especially with the addition in the last three years of roundtable sessions on a variety of popular topics.

Serial Forms (ACLA Seminar)

updated: 
Tuesday, September 8, 2015 - 11:58am
ACLA 2016

In response to an echoing call for a renewed attention to form, this ACLA seminar will examine a particularly rich formal classification: the serial. Conceiving of serial form broadly to encompass a variety of sequential and collected narratives, from installments and episodes to versions, revisions, witnesses, releases, copies, variations, collections, and cycles, we will ask how narratives in parts challenge and invigorate our critical approaches to narrative form. While criticism of serial form tends to center on Charles Dickens and look forward to twentieth-century radio and television, the formal conventions of seriality – the sequence and collection of narratives – extends far beyond this fictional field.
