Archive Journal is now accepting project and essay proposals for the "Archives, Remixed" section of its upcoming fourth issue, "Publishing the Archive."

[REMINDER] CFP- Lasting Stars: Personas that Endure and Images that Fade

updated: 
Tuesday, April 16, 2013 - 6:36am
Lucy Bolton and Julie Lobalzo Wright/ Queen Mary, University of London

Project Overview:

Film star studies have often focused on star images noted for their longevity and enduring status. The question of longevity, however, has been largely buried beneath the surface of the discipline. Although many studies have touched on the prolonged existence of some film stars, few studies have tackled longevity as a vital aspect of stardom. Underpinning longevity and film stardom are issues of aging, charisma, emblematic status, type and uniqueness, suggesting that many issues contribute to the lasting status of star images. In fact, these same areas factor into the fading of a star image, illustrating how closely success and failure are linked.

Teaching Global Shakespeares -- SAMLA 2013 Special Session

updated: 
Monday, April 15, 2013 - 9:32pm
South Atlantic Modern Language Association

"Global Shakespeare" is a trendy topic in early modern scholarship, but how can we best translate it into effective teaching? What do "global" studies of Shakespeare offer a contemporary college student? What challenges does teaching Shakespeare in a global context pose for college educators, and how do we navigate them? This SAMLA special session will discuss these and other such questions. Papers might address pedagogy directly, or they might teach a given text (play, film etc.) or set of texts. Topics might include but are not limited to:

Building the Degree: The Potential and Pitfalls of Establishing a B.A. Program in English During Uncertain Times

updated: 
Monday, April 15, 2013 - 8:02pm
SAMLA Special Session- November 8-10, Atlanta

This panel invites participants from any college or university where there is an interest in building a B.A. in English or establishing a new programmatic track within the discipline. Participants need not be at any particular point in the process, and we hope to incorporate a diverse array of experiences and viewpoints. In other words, participants may only be thinking about the possibility of creating a program or they might be on the other side of the process. This panel will also consider what types of programs should/need to be created to meet the changing needs of students in the 21st century. We hope that this session will produce a vibrant dialogue that will serve as a bridge to future cooperation.
