Call for Papers

Fan Phenomena: James Bond

Having recently celebrated the 50th anniversary of the James Bond films in 2012, and with pre-production on Bond 24 underway, Intellect's Fan Phenomena book series is now seeking chapters for a new volume on fandom and James Bond. The Fan Phenomena books explore and decode the fascination we have with what constitutes an iconic or cult phenomenon and how a particular person, TV show or film character/film infiltrates its way into the public consciousness. Over the years Bond has proved to be popular with fans, and is an enduring global cultural phenomenon, making him a perfect icon to be covered by the series.

Southwest Conference on Christianity and Literature "Has Literature Lost Its Faith?" Nov 14-15

"I'm sick of Flannery O'Connor." With this opening line, Randy Boyagoda intrigued numerous readers in his response to Paul Elie's 2012 New York Times article entitled, "Has Fiction Lost Its Faith?"

Boyagoda will be the keynote speaker, and this conference aims to continue the discussion which Elie, Boyagoda, Gioia, and Wolfe have perpetuated. Papers will be considered from a variety of disciplines and fields but should pursue questions regarding the intersection of faith and literature.

This is a call for papers for a conference at CSU Bakersfield (Nov. 6-8) on the cultural legacy of John Steinbeck's novel The Grapes of Wrath in this, the 75th anniversary of its publication. John Ford's 1940 film version helped make the case for social reform that echoed decades thereafter, through the farm labor movement, folk music, and the musical style known as the Bakersfield Sound--even as it set off the kinds of reactions described in Rick Wartzman's Obscene in the Extreme: The Burning and Banning of John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath (2008).

This session seeks papers on the dramatic literature of medieval and renaissance Spain.

We will also consider representations of Spain in the French and English drama. Possible topics include medieval religious drama; the development of Spanish Renaissance drama, including but not limited to, the plays of Lope de Vega and Calderón; and representations of Spain on the French and English stage, such as in the dramatic works of Pierre Corneille and Thomas Kyd.
