[UPDATE] Exploring Suburban Narratives in Literature, Film and Television

From Revolutionary Road to American Beauty and Desperate Housewives, some of the most popular works of fiction, television and film are those that focus in on the 'ordinariness' of suburban living. In drawing on this framework, these works expose the nature of human desperation, the values attached to American patriotism and the anxieties faced in adjusting to modern living. This panel will seek to question why suburban-based narratives have proven to be so successful within mainstream popular culture. Is it perhaps because we as readers/ viewers find a certain liberating accessibility in experiencing a social reality which reflects so closely on our own?

ICMS Kalamazoo 2013 CFP: Critical Remediation: Intersections of Medieval Studies and Media Theory

Over the past few years, medievalists' interest in new media has overwhelmingly focused on the remediation of medieval works and data: the Piers Plowman Electronic Archive, the Mapping Medieval Chester project, and animated game-like spaces such as Kapi Regnum exemplify only a few of the innovative applications of new media to our study of the medieval world. Shared amongst these projects' use of digital tools is their emphasis on remediation: that is, they take data in one form and transform it into another form of media; the process as well as the end results of this remediation open fresh avenues through which to explore medieval cultures.

Dear colleagues,

[UPDATE] Gamers love movies too: Common ground for cinema and videogame studies (SCMS 3/6/13-3/10/13, Chicago)

[DEADLINE EXTENDED]

This proposed roundtable will discuss intersections of cinema and videogame studies. Though videogames clearly borrow from and even influence film, much early videogame criticism was at pains to distinguish gaming as a unique medium. Having at this point thoroughly complicated the notion that videogames are "interactive movies," how do we now discuss the relationship between games and film? How do we put videogame studies and film studies in conversation while respecting the specific qualities of each medium? What theoretical and methodological approaches allow for productive interdisciplinary and comparative study?

Dear Colleagues,

Submissions are welcome for the following panel at the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies annual conference in Cleveland, Ohio, April 4-7 2013. Abstracts must be submitted by September 15 to sadowjb@oneonta.edu.

Unromantic Charlotte Smith

Though Charlotte Smith's poetry tends to be apprehended by its relationship to romanticism, this panel will seek papers that view her poems and other work through the lens of earlier eighteenth-century discourse. Her relationship to prior works of poetry and poetic genres is an obvious topic of interest, but so might be her relationship to science, natural history, aesthetics, print, and other areas.

[UPDATE] NeMLA 2013 CFP: Queer Self-Representation: It Isn't All About Me

This panel will examine the significance and radical potential of queer self-representation. The personal continues to be political, and for queer constituencies whose representation by a dominant mainstream has been either absent, negative, or consistently rife with limiting stereotypes, self-representation becomes crucial. However, while queer self-representation may engage with such negative representation, it is not limited to this function. Nor is it limited to a particular genre, including autobiography.
