CALL FOR PAPERS

"HORROR"

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.

University of Iowa

CRAFT CRITIQUE CULTURE is an interdisciplinary conference focusing on the intersections of critical and creative approaches to writing both within and beyond the academy. This year's conference will encourage an examination of the "inter" of interdisciplinary—as well as the construction and deconstruction of boundaries between and within academic, public, private, personal, critical, and creative discourses—through an inquiry into bridging divides.

[UPDATE] NEMLA 2016 Panel Still Laughing: Ancient Comedy and Its Descendants Due 9/30

Claire Sommers (the Graduate Center, CUNY) and Barry Spence (University of Massachusetts)

Aristotle in his Poetics outlines his theory of tragedy and gives readers a framework for assessing and understanding the genre; his treatise providing the equivalent analysis of comedy has sadly been lost, and as a result, it is difficult to find a unified theory of ancient comedy. Perhaps the closest we have is Democritus' statement that "Laughter is a complete conception of the world." Centuries later, Bakhtin would elaborate upon this sentiment by claiming that the carnivalesque comedy allows for dialogue between multiple genres and voices in order to create a world in which societal structures are upended.
