Marta Hess/South Atlantic Modern Language Association

The papers in this panel investigate the ways that writers, readers, cooks, and consumers image and imagine food in fiction, film, memoir, poetry, cookbooks, and blogs. Food can both connect and divide individuals, communities, and cultures. The papers in this panel will explore the interconnectedness of food, text, and image. Presentations in this session, for example, might examine the material ways that we represent food in photographs and film or the ways that food forms and contributes to the public images of individuals and cultures.
Please email abstracts by June 1, 2013 to mhess@gsu.edu

FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM CONFERENCE VI

"TRAVEL"

LOUISIANA STATE UNIVERSITY
31 OCTOBER-3 NOVEMBER 2013

Submissions are invited for the sixth Foreign Language Film Conference, on the theme of Travel. Scholars from all disciplines are invited to consider questions of travel, movement, location, and travellers in cinematic traditions. How does cinema represent the history, processes, and problematics of moving from one place to another? How does global cinema reflect and articulate the experience of travelling through a world that is increasingly borderless? On the pedagogical side, how do these films prompt classroom discussions of globalization, cultural adaptation, practical necessities, and personal discovery?

Dr. Elizabeth Podnieks, Editor

I am looking for papers for a proposed scholarly collection of essays on fathers within and across diverse forms of late twentieth- and early-twenty-first century popular cultures. The collection will focus on representations of fathers, fathering, and fatherhood in areas such as the following: TV shows, including family dramas, sitcoms, reality shows, and cartoons; blogs and online communities; film; advertising; magazines; and best-selling literatures.

English Literary Studies

Studia Neophilologica

Studia Neophilologica publishes articles on English, German and the Romance languages and literatures, and reviews of books in these fields.

The contributions represent both historically oriented research and synchronic and structural studies, and the journal is not limited to any particular linguistic or literary period. Many articles concern methodological questions within the fields of general linguistics and literary theory. The majority of the contributions, however, investigate specific linguistic problems or deal with specific literary texts.

The journal thus covers a wide and diversified field in its attempt to mirror the problems that concern today's researchers in the fields of English, German and Romance studies.
