Food: Imaged and Imagined SAMLA (November 8-10, 2013)

Thursday, March 28, 2013 - 3:09pm
Marta Hess/South Atlantic Modern Language Association

The papers in this panel investigate the ways that writers, readers, cooks, and consumers image and imagine food in fiction, film, memoir, poetry, cookbooks, and blogs. Food can both connect and divide individuals, communities, and cultures. The papers in this panel will explore the interconnectedness of food, text, and image. Presentations in this session, for example, might examine the material ways that we represent food in photographs and film or the ways that food forms and contributes to the public images of individuals and cultures.

English Literary Studies

Thursday, March 28, 2013 - 7:49am
Studia Neophilologica

Studia Neophilologica publishes articles on English, German and the Romance languages and literatures, and reviews of books in these fields.

The contributions represent both historically oriented research and synchronic and structural studies, and the journal is not limited to any particular linguistic or literary period. Many articles concern methodological questions within the fields of general linguistics and literary theory. The majority of the contributions, however, investigate specific linguistic problems or deal with specific literary texts.

The journal thus covers a wide and diversified field in its attempt to mirror the problems that concern today's researchers in the fields of English, German and Romance studies.

The Ohio Valley Shakespeare Conference

The planning committee of the Ohio Valley Shakespeare Conference seeks proposals for papers or panels from across today's theoretical and methodological landscape that engage Courtliness and Convention in the works of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. How do Shakespearean plays illustrate and critique early modern conceptions of conventional courtly behavior? More broadly, how do the era's plays and poems incorporate, problematize, and establish social convention – political, literary, educational, rhetorical, or otherwise? How do we understand the conventions of courtliness in today's theaters and classrooms?
