CFP: [Medieval] We Love the â80s: Nostalgia and Empire in Contemporary British Culture

updated: 
Thursday, June 5, 2008 - 4:42pm
Ann McClellan

North East Modern Language Association
Boston, MA
February 26-March 1, 2009

Using a cultural studies lens, this panel is interested in exploring the
dialectical role literature and popular culture played in (re)
establishing Britain's imperialist identity in a post-imperial climate.
Rather than face the consequences of Margaret Thatcher's Conservative
policies, the British culture industry chose to look back to periods of
colonial domination, power, and prestige. This panel will examine this
convergence of nostalgia, empire, and media to analyze how the
contemporary British culture industry sought to (re) articulate British
identity through the period's literature and popular culture.

becoming. Some moments, however, have a more heightened sense of becoming
than others. We are nearing the end of the decade that has no agreed upon
name, and 2008 is a year that promises the beginning of significant change.
The number eight itself is a marker of an infinite state of progression and

CFP: [Collections] Southeast Asian Horror Cinema

Abstracts are sought for a collection of essays on Southeast Asian Horror
Cinema. Although relatively modest in terms of production and aesthetics
if compared to the horror cinemas of Japan and Korea for example, it is
undeniable that the horror genre contributes greatly to the cinematic
histories and cultures of Southeast Asia although for various reasons
(political, market, religion, etc.) it has, for a period, suffered a
lackluster existence. For example, although Malayan cinema basically
debuted in the guise of the pontianak (loosely translated as female
vampires) films, which continued to spawn successful sequels, since the
1970s, Malaysia has more or less “banned” horror from its sociocultural
