This is a call for a proposed panel, which will explore new approaches to the study of the existentialist and absurdist movements in the 20th century. We invite proposals for papers that rethink these movements in light of recent scholarship related to gender, race, ecology, transnationalism, and immigration. We welcome papers that rethink issues at the heart of these two movements: the category of the Other, the search for meaning in the world and its environment, freedom and oppression, the political and the private. We are also interested in how these movements have been in dialogue with each other.

[UPDATE] Washington and Politics on Contemporary US Television (Edited Collection)

updated: 
Friday, March 4, 2016 - 11:16am
full name / name of organization: 
Betty Kaklamanidou - Margaret Tally

We are currently inviting submissions for 2-3 chapters for an edited collection on Washington and Politics on Contemporary US Television already contracted by Ashgate.
Television has been accommodating a bigger number of political narratives in the last years. From the dramatic "The West Wing," "Scandal," "Madame Secretary," "Homeland," "House of Cards," to the short-lived yet impressive "Boss," and "Commander in Chief" and the mini-series "Political Animals," as well as the comedic "Veep" and "The Brink," millennial TV is fraught with political plot lines that are edgier and more provocative than their filmic counterparts.

Style, in Theory

Guaranteed Panel, MLA 2017, Philadelphia (January 5-8)

Forum: GS Nonfiction Prose

With specific attention to works of non-fiction prose, but broadly enough defined to include literary theoretical and literary critical texts, papers for "Style, in Theory" will take up the question of style. What is style? How theorize style today? How might attention to style produce new encounters with literary theoretical and literary critical texts? All styles, theories, languages, and historical periods welcome. 300-word abstracts by 15 March 2016; Brian McGrath (mcgrath@clemson.edu).
