Doll Encounters, a panel at the (dis)junctions Humanities and Social Sciences Graduate Conference, Apr 5-6. DEADLINE Feb 11

Josh Pearson and Sarah Lozier, University of California, Riverside

When we encounter dolls as grown-ups, what is it that we are encountering? What might personal and cultural doll-identifications betray about relationships with the past, with gender and sexuality, with play, with tenderness and with terror? This panel invites submissions which reflect upon the sociocultural meaning of the doll as text, as artifact, or, more traditionally, as an enduring literary and filmic obsession. In psychoanalysis as well as in the popular imagination, dolls have long played the role of uncanny object. This panel is particularly interested in the way in which new technologies, products and markets have uncannily reproduced, intensified and responded to anxieties and hauntings from the past.

Shaw and Adaptation [MLA 2014 in Chicago; JANUARY 9-12, 2014]

*Sponsored by the International Shaw Society*

Please send abstracts of 250 words and CVs as well as queries by March 15, 2013 to Lawrence Switzky (lawrence.switzky@utoronto.ca).

Many audiences first encounter Bernard Shaw's plays through their transformations into other genres and media. Lerner and Loewe's My Fair Lady (1956) is perhaps the most famous adaptation of Shaw's Pygmalion (1912), though the current standard print edition of the play is also an adaptation, a hybrid of Shaw's Academy Award-winning screenplay for the 1938 film and his original and revised stage scripts.
