Modern Horizons Journal

For the April 2011 edition of Modern Horizons we invite essays that explore the various intellectual, artistic, emotional, and political manifestations of kitsch in our time.

In our current culture, the word 'kitsch' has come to be associated often with tacky souvenirs and cheap trinkets. However, there is a thicker sense given to the word by various thinkers and authors in the twentieth century, even if it is regularly connected with an idea of culture.

Seeking papers that explore the often ambiguous nature of satire's object, the lines that blur between satire and celebration, and the difficulty of predicting or controlling audience response.

Recent studies, such as "The Irony of Satire," suggest that perception of satire's object often rests in the reader's or viewer's own biases. This panel is interested in exploring the implications of this ambiguity in the production, deployment, and teaching of satire. How does this affect satire's admittedly subversive purpose? Is this satire's power, its limitation, or both?

No(bodies): Ghost Children in Juvenile Literature

This panel seeks to explore the figure of the ghost child in children's and young adult literature.

Papers might consider, but are not limited to, what the ghost child suggests about the following:
