Tuesday, June 5, 2012 - 11:38pm
Medieval and Renaissance Graduate Student Organization, The Ohio State University

The Medieval and Renaissance Graduate Student Association at The Ohio State University is currently accepting abstracts for the first year of our annual conference, Translatio. Prospective papers should discuss the religious life, broadly conceived, in both the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. We welcome submissions on topics that range from monasticism to popular religion, and the way that the Church orthodoxy translates into the life of the laity. We also encourage papers that expand the discussion beyond Christianity and the West.

Possible topics may include:

Rise of the Fandoms: When They Began to Rule the 'Verse

updated: 
Tuesday, June 5, 2012 - 11:40am
Northeast Modern Language Association

This panel seeks to look at the increased role of the fandom in pop culture today. More and more writers admit to reading message boards, websites, and fan fiction about their work, and making creative choices following this engagement. How have these communities raised the level of discourse regarding their topic of choice, or in some cases possibly have trivialized academic engagement? Other theories relating to this topic are welcome. 200 words abstracts should be sent to Lindsay Bryde at Lindsay.Bryde@gmail.com

The Politics of Fantasy in XX-XXI Century Latin American/Peninsular Literature and Cultural Studies

updated: 
Tuesday, June 5, 2012 - 8:02am
South Atlantic Modern Language Association(SAMLA)

Phallogocentric discourse minimizes imagination, confabulation and fantasy as a matter for women and children, but fantasy is powerful, liberating and, therefore, dangerous to those who fear change. The purpose of this session is to rescue fantasy and confront the legalistic yoke of reason. Presentations in English and in Spanish are welcome. Send submissions to mcalatayud@northgeorgia.edu

Genre and genus: Categories for Humans and Animals in Early Modern English Literature (NeMLA 2013)

Tuesday, June 5, 2012 - 12:23am
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)

44th Annual Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
March 21-24, 2013
Boston, Massachusetts
Host Institution: Tufts University

This panel explores how literature represents the relationship between humans and animals in a range of early modern texts. How do representations of the mutable boundary between humans and animals differ depending on their generic context? How do concerns about literary kinds relate to and intersect with concerns about species categorization? To what extent does generic mingling and experimentation relate to the varying representations of inter-species similitude and difference? Send 300 word abstracts to Julia Gingerich <7jg32@queensu.ca>

Spectacles of Alienation: Deconstructing the Theatrical in Contemporary Culture (deadline 9/30/2012)

updated: 
Monday, June 4, 2012 - 12:28pm
NeMLA (March 21-24, 2013)

This panel explores the tension between the theatrical and the anti-theatrical in contemporary culture. From the increasing ubiquity of performance art in mainstream theatre to the public spectacle of the political protest, this panel solicits papers that asks what role theatre plays in a world that blurs the boundaries between social ritual and performative fiction. We welcome papers that address political performance as well as studies of aesthetic practice in modern theatre. Send abstracts of less than 250 words to LGeddes@adelphi.edu by September 30, 2012.
