[Deadline Reminder] Captivity Writing Unbound, October 11-13, 2012

Sunday, April 22, 2012 - 12:55pm
University of South Alabama / Department of English

Proposals for panels and papers are invited for a conference entitled "Captivity Writing Unbound," to be hosted by the University of South Alabama's Department of English and held at its Baldwin County campus, which is set in the heart of the quaint artist community of Fairhope, overlooking scenic Mobile Bay. As conference organizers, we envision a relatively concentrated event in which select scholars working in various disciplines and historical periods will present new ideas about the general area of writing and captivity. We are particularly interested in papers that explore and extend the traditional boundaries of the study of captivity writing, whether these are conceived generically, geographically, historically, or in disciplinary terms.

Modernist Cultures Special Issue

In Projections (2012), Jared Gardner calls comics "perhaps the most understudied of the vernacular modernisms of the twentieth century." This proposal for a special issue of Modernist Cultures (Edinburgh UP) on comics and modernism intends to develop and in some cases initiate critical conversations on the relationships between modernism and comics.

[CALL FOR ANTHOLOGY ARTICLES] Marxian Cartographies: Mapping and Re-drawing the Trace

updated: 
Saturday, April 21, 2012 - 4:11pm
Anthony C. Cooke/Emory University

At present, capitalism seems to enjoy a certain status as the last remaining "ideological superpower" in the global arena; however, many committed scholars, activists, writers, philosophers, and others continue to seek new avenues for humanistic engagement even as corporate and political interests work to circumscribe the academic community's contributions to issues affecting the public sphere. Such imagining of alternative epistemologies is the focus of an edited volume currently under consideration at Cambridge Scholars Publishing, entitled, Marxian Cartographies: Mapping and Re-drawing the Trace.
