Recent publications, such as Amy Villarejo's _Ethereal Queer: Television, Historicity, Desire_ (Duke, 2014) and Jason Mittell's _Complex Television: The Poetics of Contemporary Television Storytelling_ (MediaCommons Press, 2012-13), among others, herald a paradigm shift in television theory and historiography, one that deepens and expands the current critical language of TV studies. This panel seeks to pursue this shift in critical and theoretical approaches to television studies, inviting papers that situate television in broader questions of narrativity, historicity, critical theory, and continental philosophy.
the quint's twenty fourth issue is issuing a call for theoretically informed and historically grounded submissions of scholarly interest—as well as creative writing, original art, interviews, and reviews of books, music, and films. The deadline for this call is 15th August 2014—but please note that we accept manu/digi-scripts at any time.
All contributions accompanied by a short biography will be forwarded to a member of the editorial board. Manuscripts must not be previously published or submitted for publication elsewhere while being reviewed by the quint's editors or outside readers.
Call for Papers
ICONOGPRAHY AND ARCHETYPES IN WESTERN FILM AND TELEVISION
Eds. Sue Matheson and Andrew Patrick Nelson
We are currently soliciting abstracts of 100 words for essays to be included the first book to examine the richness and complexity of the film and television Western through its iconography and archetypes, foregrounding the significant contributions made to our understanding of America's narratives of land, nation and cultural identity by the recurrent symbols and artifacts of Hollywood's wild west.
We invite abstracts for 15-20 minute paper sessions on disguise and incognito for the International Congress on Medieval Studies, May 14-17 2015. Submit via e-mail to email@example.com with ICMS in the subject header. For time to read and reply to every submission individually, please send it in no later than August 18, 2014.
Since its initial publication in 1974, the iconic role-playing game (RPG) Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) has spawned hundreds of other analog and digital RPGs, as well as an entirely new industry and subculture. In the last decade, scholars from across the disciplinary spectrum have explored the origins, characteristics, cultures, and player experiences of RPGs. Yet, little scholarly attention has been devoted to the meaningful ways RPGs have shaped and transformed society at large over the past forty years.
What are the literary legacies of Malcolm X's life and death? In 1965, after Malcolm X's life came to an end, The Autobiography of Malcolm X cemented his status as icon. Malcolm's death galvanized a nascent Black Arts Movement, inspiring the generation of black nationalist artists that Amiri Baraka termed 'Malcolm's sons and daughters.' This panel invites papers that engage with the enduring resonance of Malcolm X's life and death for literary and black studies.
Theme: Translation, Cosmopolitanism & Resistance
Coordination: Maria Alexandra Lopes
Deadline for submission of original articles: 31st December 2014
CFP: Mobility, Paralysis, and Identity in Dubliners
As we celebrate 100 years of reading Joyce's Dubliners, this collection will reconsider narrative devices and strategies that Joyce scholars tend to accept as gospel. We hope to challenge canonical notions of mobility, paralysis, identity, and gender as we offer readings of a variety of stories in the collection.
Single paragraph abstracts are due Friday, August 8. Full essays should be 6,000-8,000 words and will be due Friday, October 3.
Please submit your proposals to Ellen Scheible at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing your ideas!
Whether as a figure of intimate proximity, moral obligation, psychoanalytic anxiety, or a metaphor for a literary history that eschews the genealogical, the medieval neighbor has long lurked on the margins of medieval scholarship. Recently, Slavoj Zizek, Eric Santner, and Kenneth Reinhard have interrogated the uncanniness that the neighbor introduces into the social field, inserting neighbor-love into conversations in political theology as discussed by Carl Schmitt and Giorgio Agamben. In Medieval Studies, Aranye Fradenburg and George Edmundson have suggested a number of varied, challenging, and exigent ways in which the field of medieval studies can take up and complicate the injunction to love thy neighbor in medieval England.
I'm writing to invite you to submit proposals for a collection of essays that is tentatively titled The Good Life and the Greater Good in a Global Context. Please take a look at the brief description of the topic and the research questions below. Feel free to add any other comments and questions and let me know if you are interested in contributing. My own essay examines the transnational dimensions of "that moral-intimate-economic thing called 'the good life'" (Berlant 2) as theorized by cultural critic Lauren Berlant and imagined by Pakistani novelist Mohsin Hamid in his latest novel, How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia (2012).
