UPDATE- Silent Cinema and Time Travel (SCMS Chicago, March 6-10, 2013)

updated: 
Friday, August 3, 2012 - 10:53pm
Maggie Hennefeld / Brown University

This panel poses methodological questions about the resurgence of interest in early film history by interrogating the thematic of time travel in silent cinema. The emergence of cinema itself constitutes a form of time travel, at once "mummifying" contingent moments and making them portable for reenactment in the present, and inventing parallel futures and histories by innovating new cinematic techniques (stop-motion photography, trick splices, enlargements of miniature objects, color tinting and toning, undercranking, smoke and mirrors, etc).

ASECS 2013: "Dryden's Dramatic Works" (April 4-7, Cleveland, OH)

updated: 
Thursday, August 2, 2012 - 1:17pm
Geremy Carnes, University of Michigan

2013 marks the 350th anniversary of the theatrical debut of one of English drama's most important writers: John Dryden. While changes in taste, morals, and politics led to the neglect of Dryden's dramatic works in subsequent centuries, his plays were among the most popular and influential on the Restoration and early eighteenth-century stage. This session seeks papers that explore any aspect of Dryden's theatrical works, particularly as it relates to the development of dramatic genres, aesthetics, or theater history, in the seventeenth- and eighteenth-centuries or beyond.

Please submit paper proposals to geremyc@umich.edu by September 15.

Deathless Love (18 May 2013)

updated: 
Wednesday, August 1, 2012 - 9:28am
The Carolina Emerging Scholars Conference

Celebrating the world's greatest love stories has long been the subject of authors, painters, musicians, dancers, moviemakers, and critics. The Carolina Emerging Scholars Conference is pleased to accept papers on the theme of "Deathless Love," ranging from the story of Heloise and Abelard to Wuthering Heights and the Twilight series, and dealing with any genre from poetry to the movies. We would be particularly interested in interdisciplinary papers making connections between two or more genres, for instance, literary or historical love affairs immortalized in visual art or music, the historical and literary intersections of Spiritualism, and cross-cultural notions of love beyond death.
