Collection of essays exploring the character Lois Lane from the DC Superman Universe (all movies, TV-shows, Comics, etc.)

Did you ever wonder about the woman behind Superman? The woman who supports him and without whom one of America's favourite heroes would be unable to fulfil his destiny? Rightly so! And yet, there is no work that examines this central figure in the Superman universe.

The Postmodern Dandy (NeMLA, March 15-18, 2012; proposals due Sept. 30, 2011)

Kirsten Bartholomew Ortega

As recent scholarship like Monica Miller's of the black dandy has suggested, the history of dandyism is complicated by race, class, nationalism, and sexuality. This panel requests papers which challenge the boundaries of the dandy as 'modern' figure as well. Especially considering how issues such as race, class, nationalism and sexuality have altered our understanding of the figure/trope, has the dandy moved into the postmodern? How does postmodernism change representations of or interpretations of dandyism?

Papers for this panel may analyze dandy figures from contemporary culture: literature, film, visual art, etc.

This session seeks papers that utilize landscape studies, space and place theory, and ecocritical approaches on medieval texts and places in an effort to illuminate new understandings on the literature, history, ecology, geography, archeology, and architecture of medieval Britain. Proposed topics may come from any geographic area and time period, and this session hopes to cross (and perhaps complicate or dismantle) temporal, generic, and disciplinary boundaries through scholarly interaction and discussion. Papers may address (but are not limited to) the following questions:
