(Re)Mixed Grooves: Disco, Hip-Hop, and the Poetics of Sampling



If "disco is dead" and "hip-hop is in crisis" then what do we make of renewed and continued interest in these genres--and how are disco and hip-hop relevant to literary texts? Recent scholarship on disco culture (by Alice Echols, Peter Shapiro, Tim Lawrence, and Vince Aletti) and critical studies about hip-hop culture (by Tricia Rose, Bakari Kitwana, Adam Bradley, Gwendolyn Pough, and Jeff Chang) insist on examining the complexities within these musical genres, their cultures, and descendents.

This panel seeks papers on gender-crossings in fiction and drama by authors on both sides of the Atlantic. Topics might include a variety of literary and performative crossings, which transgress and re-imagine gender roles, or challenge the notion of discrete binaries of gender and sexuality. Of particular interest are papers that explore the ways in which literary masquerades, transvestitisms, and carnivalesque versions of gender or sexual identity intersect with issues of race, class, and national identity.

The Centre for Studies in Otherness invites papers for the e-journal issue Otherness: Essays and Studies 2.2.

Otherness: Essays and Studies, a peer-reviewed interdisciplinary e-journal, publishes research articles from and across different academic disciplines that examine, in as many ways as possible, the concepts of otherness and alterity. We particularly appreciate dynamic cross-disciplinary study. We publish two issues a year, alternating between special topic issues and general issues. This is a call for our general issue, forthcoming in Winter 2011.

We invite proposals for an edited collection entitled Service Learning and Literary Studies. Our use of the term service learning captures all curriculum-based community engagement. The proposed text will demonstrate that service learning can accomplish multiple learning outcomes as it enriches the study of literature in the college curriculum and meets community needs.

In addition to an introduction, two overview essays and a bibliography of service learning resources, the book will be arranged in two main sections:
