York University Cinema & Media Studies Graduate Student Conference 2014
November 21-23, 2014
Celebrating Shakespeare's 450th birthday this issue of Gender Forum will focus on Shakespeare's plays and sonnets emphasizing the range of criticism and theory dealing with gender and sexuality. In order to widen the current discourse we encourage scholars to also consider early modern texts and their historical milieus about same-sex desire and recent critical and historical arguments about the construction of gay identity. We also encourage papers about modern adaptations looking at literary transformations of Shakespeare plays and sonnets by later women like Paula Vogel and gay artists from Oscar Wilde to Gus van Sant.

The 'Transnational turn' in literary studies has been the focus of intense debate and sustained reflection in recent years, as have critical re-evaluations of Modernism's transnational scope. Scholarly interventions by Paul Giles (Transnationalism in Practice), Wai Chee Dimock (Through Other Continents: American Literature Across Deep Time), Jahan Ramanzani (A Transnational Poetics), and Paul Jay (Global Matters: The Transnational Turn in Literary Studies), among many others, establish the viability of transnationality as a disciplinary focus.

In 2008 The Times Literary Supplement included the publication of C. P. Snow's 1959 Rede Lecture, The Two Cultures and the Scientific Revolution, on its list of the 100 books that have most influenced Western public discourse since the Second World War. Although Snow's lecture prompted a dustup between scientists and literary elites over who could lay claim to the superior form of knowledge, over time the sides and tenor of the "Two Cultures Debate" have changed.

POPPING THE QUESTION: THE QUESTION OF POPULAR CULTURE
Deadline for article submissions: November 30, 2014
As a concept, the popular – or popular culture for that matter – has never ceased to be debatable and ambivalent. Although it has come to occupy a particular place under the spotlight over the past decades within the broad study of culture, such apparently privileged position has not deprived it of the manifold ambiguities, complexities or misconceptions that have often involved its general understanding (John Storey, 2012; Angela McRobbie, 1994; Andrew Ross, 1989; John Fiske, 1989).

This roundtable looks to examine the pains and joys of teaching in the online classroom. There has been a rise in the quantity of online degree programs, but has the quality gone with it? Let's look at what educators could and should be doing to reach out to students that choose this medium for their education. In return, what possible online classroom staples and lessons could be used and brought into the face-to-face classroom as well?
The conference is through the Northeast Modern Language Association and will take place April 30 - May 3, 2015 in Toronto, Canada.
Submissions are due: September 30, 2014.
