Call for Papers
Revenge, so we are told, is a dish best served cold: a 'sweet' wreaking of vengeance on those who have – either in reality or in our minds – slighted, wronged or in some way 'injured' us and who are now 'enjoying' their just deserts by an avenging angel (or angels) on the great day of reckoning.

The theme of this year's conference is "Transforming Words." In his 1969 work, The Way to Rainy Mountain, N.

During the conference, we would like to explore the practical ways language functions to effect change. How can language overcome supposed barriers of race and gender?

2011 ACCUTE Conference, May 28-May 31 2011 at the University of New Brunswick

That Pride and Prejudice would inspire a zombie rewriting was perhaps surprising to Austen fans and critics, but "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" has itself inspired enough monstrous mash-ups from "Alice in Zombieland" to "Jane Slayre" to "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Zombie Jim" constitute a genuine genre: monster classics. Something of a pun on the afterlife of fiction, what, if anything, do these neo-Romantic and neo-Victorian monstrosities suggest about the culture from which they are drawn? About our own culture? This panel welcomes papers that consider any aspect of the monster classic phenomena, from theories of adaptation and mutation to considerations of genre or canon.
