[UPDATE] The Dada App (MSA 15, August 29 - September 1, Brighton)

updated: 
Thursday, February 21, 2013 - 10:08pm
Merrill Cole / Western Illinois University

What contemporary uses can we make of Dada methods, techniques, innovations, and ideas? Should Dada inform our politics? Can it help to break us out of the postmodern ever-same, or is it the already-been-done, as Peter Bürger'€™s Theory of the Avant-Garde might suggest? Where is the Dada apparatus today?

Elizabeth Kelley Bowman / Interdisciplinary Literary Studies (Penn State)

We invite essays from interdisciplinary perspectives that address contemporary adaptations of Renaissance literature or art, particularly Jacobean, in film.

Approaches sought include anachronism, narrative disjunction, radical or extreme subject matter, and irreverence toward source material.

Disciplines might include adaptation studies, literature, art history, reception history, genre studies, and historical and theoretical approaches to early modern works and the materials and production of adaptations.

Marxism..."That is the Question"

updated: 
Thursday, February 21, 2013 - 1:49pm
Marxist Literary Group/South Atlantic Modern Language Association (SAMLA) Conference, Atlanta, GA, November 8-10, 2013

Taking a cue from Shakespeare's Hamlet, this panel focuses on a critical examination of the act or state of calling one's self a Marxist, that is to say, it asks the question, "What does it mean to be a Marxist in the 21st century?" For instance, what are the challenges that arise when reflecting on individual access to digital archives in relation to others who may rely only on printed materials? What are the advantages or disadvantages of Marxist articulations across various media such as print, digital, or film, concerning their selection of viewpoints for defining one's self as "Marxist?" How does "being Marxist" differ across ethnic, gendered, racial, sexual, and religious lines?
