INQUIS is an online, biannual, blind peer-reviewed journal which offers graduate students in the field of literatures in English a chance to make their research known internationally. Considering that literary studies as a field of scholarly study has undergone tremendous changes and challenges, both the practice and theory of literary studies certainly need a thorough scrutiny under the light of new perspectives, new approaches, new interpretations as well as new insights. By including the works of graduate researchers, the journal primarily aims to promote dialogue and to serve as an international forum for young academics and researchers where they can share their ideas and contribute globally to the discussions on studies of literatures in English.

ReFocus: The Films of William Castle. Abstracts due May 15, 2016.

Sunday, February 14, 2016 - 5:38pm
full name / name of organization: 
Murray Leeder

William Castle will likely forever be remembered first as "The Master of Gimmicks" and "The Abominable Showman": the director of exciting gimmick films like Macabre (1958), House on Haunted Hill (1959), The Tingler (1959), 13 Ghosts (1960), Homicidal (1961) and Mr. Sardonicus (1961), and the maestro behind the Emergo, Percepto and Illusion-O, the punishment poll and the life insurance policy against death by fright. But there was much more to his Hollywood career than this cycle, however innovative and indelible it may have been. He directed more than fifty films between 1944 and 1974, and produced both The Lady from Shanghai (1947) and Rosemary's Baby (1968).

As the titles suggests, this panel is open to consider papers on other topics that tackle similar or relevant questions of concern in academia today.
