Tom Ue, Department of English, University College London

Heralded by The Telegraph as a 'global phenomenon,' BBC's Sherlock is now one of the most commercially and critically successful television series of all time. The global recognition of Sherlock, combined with the recent discovery of Arthur Berthelet's 1916 silent film Sherlock Holmes starring William Gillette in his only screen appearance as the famous sleuth, makes it especially timely for film scholars, students, and audiences to reassess the cultural legacy of Holmes onscreen. Forthcoming work by Hills (2016) and Poore (2016) argue strongly for Holmes as a continuing source of scholarly interest, spurring us to look at Holmes' filmic lives.

Aimee Jones & Heather Lang/ Florida State University

Popular, and powerful, narratives in the field of writing center studies position nondirective and collaborative writing strategies, higher order concerns (over lower order concerns), and peer-to-peer tutoring as key terms in the field. Though an accomplishment for writing center scholars and administrators, this narrative with its preferred strategies has neglected the experiences of some writers. This session is a call to action to examine the writing center's narratives and strategies by bringing underrepresented client populations to the fore:

"She Flew to Me For Protection": Networks, Agency, and Community in Eighteenth Century Women's Writing (Abstracts Due June 5th)

EC/ASECS 2015 conference (November 12-14, 2015) West Chester, Pennsylvania

This panel seeks to explore how eighteenth-century women writers recreate, redefine and utilize conventional relationships to find new communities that allow them greater access to authority. Much has been said about the way utopian female communities provided women with empowering networks that replaced the traditional, hierarchical, and restrictive relationships traditionally available. Women writers used these imagined, alternative communities to contest and renegotiate gender roles, resist oppression, criticize society, and advocate for change. But less has been said about women and communities that are not exclusively female.

Timothy Corrigan (University of Pennsylvania) – José Duarte (University of Lisbon/ULICES)

In light of the recent publications on road movies (Neil Archer, 2012; Gott and Schilt, 2013; Sara Brandellero, 2013 or Natália Pinnaza, 2014), we welcome contributions for a volume focusing on road movies around the world, giving voice to directors and films previously neglected. Primarily an American genre – as discussed in Corrigan, 1991; Cohan and Hark, 1997; Laderman, 2002, Mills, 2006 or Orgeron, 2007 – the road movie was rapidly adopted by other nations, as exemplified by the particular case of South-American countries, like Brazil or Argentina.
