Francisco, 2008. (CFP and collection).

Both loved and reviled while in office, Margaret Thatcher has continued to generate powerful
aftereffects in Britain and abroad more than 20 years after her term as Prime Minister. This panel
is designed to present a new focus on Thatcher, considering her impact both whilst Prime
Minister and since she has left power and both at home and abroad. We hope that this panel will
allow for a fuller assessment of the impact of Margaret Thatcher and the phenomenon of
Thatcherism.

It’s a Mad World: The Work of Terry Gilliam

We seek essays of 4,000 to 8,000 words for an anthology that explores the work of writer-
actor-director-comedian Terry Gilliam. For decades Gilliam has been a leading film auteur, both
a comic and a social critic, and a historical, critical survey of his work is needed. While he has
never wholly departed from his Monty Python roots, he has forged his own distinct vision.
Gilliam cinematically creates worlds that are once familiar if unwelcome. He triumphs the
mundane and the absurd. His anachronistic and off-kilter vision consistently throws off our
ability to find a stable or common foundation on which to ground our approach to his films.
