CFP Haunting Whiteness: Rhetorics of Whiteness in a 'Post-Racial' Era

The editors invite chapter proposals that work with the collection's title, Haunting Whiteness: Rhetorics of Whiteness in a 'Post-Racial' Era. As imagined in this collection, whiteness is an identification, a trope with associated discourses and cultural scripts for thinking and acting. As an identification, whiteness (via its presences and absences) constructs identities for people and texts as well as for cultural events and institutions. As an identification, whiteness functions as Freud describes all identifications: as a ghost, a haunting, which feeds on invisibility, nostalgia, and melancholy.

Since the advent of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, supernatural dramas aimed at a young adult market have become a staple of the television landscape. Shows like Angel, The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural, Smallville, MTV's recent remake of Teen Wolf, The Secret Circle, and even Heroes and (though perhaps to a lesser degree) HBO's True Blood draw on the audience's voracious appetite for vampires, werewolves, and other creatures of the night. And of course the Twilight book and film series have drawn in ever more readers and viewers.

This year's conference theme is: Images, Illuminations, Maps, and Marginalia in Medieval Texts. This is a call for papers for our Regular session English I (Medieval) as follows: Medieval texts often include visual matter in addition to the text – from the crude illustrations in the only extant manuscript of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight to the elaborate Très Riches Heures du Duc de Berry. Often illustration was imbedded in the text itself, in the form of the decorated Initials; and sometimes decoration overwhelmed the text itself, as in the 'carpet' pages in the Book of Kells. This panel invites papers exploring the function of images of all kinds in Medieval texts.

[UPDATE] Deadline extension: The Arts of Attention Conference, Budapest, Hungary (Mar. 31, 2013)

Attention is increasingly regarded by cognitive scientists and evolutionary anthropologists as a faculty whose development in human animals is constitutive of what it means to be human. This conference invites papers on (1) the ways in which literary texts encode this faculty (tropologically, discoursively, narratologically, ideologically), and/or (2) the ways in which theories of reading have recognized or underestimated the arts and techniques of attention. We particularly invite contributions developing or dismissing the suggestion that literature offers privileged insight into the function of attention as a possibility condition for the imagination, for agency, and for community formation.
