deadline for submissions:

The Poetics program at New College of California (ca. 1980-2000s) was a distinctly alien presence among graduate-level academic programs in North America.

Transmotion is seeking submissions on the theme of Transgender, Two-Spirit and Nonbinary Indigenous Literature.

In the United States, writers like Luna Merbruja, Janet Mock, and Lady Dane Figueroa Edidi have received attention as transgender writers but less attention within Indigenous studies.

Guy Debord examined the spectacle through the Marxist lens and discerned that the spectacle draws the public gaze through a collection of images that contain signs that feed on and feed the socially dominant ideology. In other words, spectacles perpetuate the images the ruling class produces to subjugate and degrade. Thus, spectacles are discourses about the ruling class—"a self-portrait of power” (Debord, Society of the Spectacle).  A scandal is a spectacle that violates the social norms of the ruling class, even as it draws the public gaze through sensationalizing the social transgression.

MMLA 2020 Popular Culture Permanent Session CFP: Fan Responses to Popular Culture (deadline extended to May 31))

updated: 
Friday, April 24, 2020 - 5:46pm
Midwest Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 31, 2020

Due to the current circumstances, the deadline for submitting a paper for this panel has been extended to May 31.

Last year, when Fox canceled the television show Lucifer, a fan campaign to save the show resulted in Netflix picking it up for another season. This was not an isolated incident. Collectives of fans, gathering both online and in person, often influence the longevity, the content, the dispersal, and the afterlife of their favorite shows, games, songs, and other popular culture artifacts. In response to the conference theme “Cultures of Collectivity,” the popular culture permanent session invites papers that investigate how both planned and spontaneous groups appropriate or influence popular culture.
