Monster Classics, 2011 ACCUTE conference May 28-31 Fredericton, NB

ACCUTE

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 "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Zombie Jim" to "Jane Slayre" to 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.

Call for Contributions: collected essays on censorship and literature in English speaking countries, 16th-21st centuries

With the development of the modern state, there has been an ongoing tension between the will to control and at the same time allow free speech to develop. In English-speaking countries, the theme of "Censorship and Discourse" has been a recurrent concern from the 16th century to the present day, as the numerous censored publications and writings against censorship testify.

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 French Graduate Student Association of Columbia University is pleased to announce its 20th Graduate Student conference, to be held March 4th, 2011.

The conference will take as its theme text and image in French and world literatures and art. We will explore how text and image complement and interact and compete with one another in composite works, and how an understanding of each can inform readings of hybrid works, such as textual/lettrist art, visual poetry, film, and even theatre. Graduate students of all departments are welcome to submit abstracts of 300-500 words, and we especially welcome projects with a comparative focus and/or approach. Possible topics include but are not limited to:
