MLA 2017 Special Session Proposal

We are seeking proposals for a special session at the MLA 2017 conference. Our proposed session, "Teeming Masses in the Transatlantic Imagination," will consider literary explorations of crowds, immigration, uprisings, and/or social welfare in the transatlantic exchange, medieval to modern. We invite perspectives representing diverse fields and theoretical approaches, with possible subtopics including but not restricted to nationalism, taxation and reactions to it, democratic societies, populism, labor, and policing.

"Archives and the Management of Sex" at PAMLA Nov. 11-13

updated: 
Friday, March 11, 2016 - 4:52pm
Pacific Ancient Modern Language Association 2016 (Pasadena, CA)

This panel will explore how institutions dedicated to the collection, preservation, and circulation of material knowledge manage sexuality. Sex materials create conflicting imperatives for librarians. As one collections curator at the New York Public Library recently told a reporter, "We needed to collect life as it was lived… It was always part of our mandate." Yet librarians at NYPL also had a mandate to protect the mass of pornographic magazines, pulp novels, and fliers they collected by carefully regulating access to them. Until recently, sex materials at NYPL labeled with three stars required supervision. That one example illustrates how sequestration generally determines who can read about sex and under what conditions.

Wednesday, March 9, 2016 - 11:06am
Dandelion Journal, Birkbeck College

The Dandelion editors seek submissions on the theme of NOSTALGIA for their forthcoming issue.

Nostalgia is a ubiquitous presence in contemporary culture. Images and fantasies of the past permeate cultural and political discourses: from the mediated recycling of retro culture and popular history, to nostalgia as a method of political renewal (for example, Donald Trump's campaign slogan 'Make America Great Again!' and Ken Loach's The Spirit of '45).

Since his seminal writing on The Sandman (1989-present) and long since before and after on works such as Batman, Miracleman, The Books of Magic, The Endless, Stardust, The Graveyard Book, etc. from adult graphic novels (Neverwhere) to voluminous amounts of children's graphic novels and illustrated texts (Coraline, Chu's Day, Fortunately, the Milk, Hansel and Gretel etc.), Neil Gaiman has established himself as one of the most prominent, if not prolific, writers in the medium of sequential art in the late twentieth and twenty-first century.

[UPDATE] Postcolonial Shakespeares - CFP for Postcolonial Interventions Vol I, Issue 2 -

updated: 
Tuesday, March 8, 2016 - 11:07am
Postcolonial Interventions: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Postcolonial Studies ISSN 2455 6564

2016 marks the quartercentenary of Shakespeare's death and the upcoming issue of Postcolonial Interventions will focus on the continued relevance of multiple Shakespeares in the culture-scape of the postcolonial world. Not only were Shakespearean plays shaped in many ways by colonial discourses, especially discourses of racial difference, but Shakespearean plays also initially functioned as those "signs taken for wonders" through which the colonial administrators sought to consolidate imperial hegemony, as evident from such critical works as Post-Colonial Shakespeares (1999).
