[UPDATE] Teaching Comics and Graphic Novels (11/1/12)

updated: 
Wednesday, September 12, 2012 - 5:18pm
George Cusack/University of Oklahoma

The exploding popularity of comic books, graphic novels, and other sequential art forms has led universities across the globe to integrate these texts into their curricula, most commonly within the disciplines of English or literary studies. However, the actual role of these courses within the majors that offer them remains under scrutiny. Many faculty see sequential art texts as mere novelties they can use to lighten the reading load of their courses, or, even worse, see the entire medium as a pop-culture fad that distracts students from the more serious work of literary analysis.

True Lies: The Eighteenth-Century Novel (2/28/13 to 3/2/13)

updated: 
Wednesday, September 12, 2012 - 4:24pm
SEASECS

When the novel was first developing in eighteenth-century England, it was a lie. At least, that's what many of its critics claimed. This session seeks to explore the kinds of deceptions that the early novel perpetuates. Both the form and content of the novel are welcome subjects of paper proposals, and topics could include (though are not limited to) authors' truth-claims, objections to novels' deceptiveness, or the impact of disguises or secrets on particular narratives.

Submit an abstract of 250 words for a 15- to 20-minute presentation to kathryn.hansen@citadel.edu by October 15, 2012. Please also indicate all audio-visual needs, if any.

Hemingway & Dos Passos: Modern Crossroads, 2013 ALA, Boston, May 23-26

updated: 
Wednesday, September 12, 2012 - 2:47pm
The Ernest Hemingway Society

Co-sponsored by the Ernest Hemingway Society and the John Dos Passos Society

Whatever its other faults and virtues, HBO's Hemingway and Gellhorn (2012) reminds us of the friendships that tied many moderns together in their work. John Dos Passos, Ernest Hemingway's friend and a fellow writer, is featured in this contemporary biopic and the picture reminds us of the experiences the two shared. Hemingway's relationship with Dos Passos is particularly evocative of the 1920s and 30s, when the moderns banded together to interrogate aesthetic experiment in a time of political upheaval.

Veganism and Anorexia (November 15, 2012)

Wednesday, September 12, 2012 - 1:28pm
Laura Wright/Western Carolina University

I'm currently working on a book that examines cultural representations of vegans and veganism in popular culture. I am interested in collecting personal narratives from women about veganism and eating disorders that run counter to the various studies that continue to perpetuate linkages between vegetarian and vegan diets and anorexia (detailed below). Please send stories of 1000 words or less to lwright@email.wcu.edu by November 15, 2012.
