After the Visual Turn: Boundaries of Print Culture

updated: 
Monday, March 14, 2016 - 12:24pm
Lisa Chinn/ Emory University

What can sound studies tell us about the printed word? What kinds of intersections exist between sound and print modes of reproduction? What has visual culture taught us about print culture, and how are we now going beyond the visual to understand the printed word?

This MLA 2017 panel will examine conception, production, and dissemination of the printed word with and beyond the visual, including intermediality or sound studies. 250-word abstract by 15 March 2016; Lisa Chinn lisa.marie.chinn@gmail.com

Parlour: A Journal of Literary Criticism and Analysis--Call for Video and Short Essays

Parlour: A Journal of Literary Criticism and Analysis / Ohio University

At Parlour, we accept Growl Posts, video lectures, and video presentations on a rolling basis. These types of content need not relate to the theme of an upcoming issue.

A Growl Post is a short essay responding to a text using few, if any, secondary sources. Named for John Jarndyce's "Growlery" in Dickens' Bleak House, the Growlery is a space to express and ruminate on issues "unsuitable" for the parlour. However, Growls do not need to exclusively express "ill humour." Funny, edgy, witty, dark—Growls may contemplate or approach a text from any perspective. Growl Posts should follow current MLA guidelines and be approximately 1500-2500 words in length.

"Archives and the Management of Sex" at PAMLA Nov. 11-13

Pacific Ancient Modern Language Association 2016 (Pasadena, CA)

This panel will explore how institutions dedicated to the collection, preservation, and circulation of material knowledge manage sexuality. Sex materials create conflicting imperatives for librarians. As one collections curator at the New York Public Library recently told a reporter, "We needed to collect life as it was lived… It was always part of our mandate." Yet librarians at NYPL also had a mandate to protect the mass of pornographic magazines, pulp novels, and fliers they collected by carefully regulating access to them. Until recently, sex materials at NYPL labeled with three stars required supervision. That one example illustrates how sequestration generally determines who can read about sex and under what conditions.
