[Update] Ameen Rihani's Arab-American Legacy: From Romanticism to Postmodernism: 28 - 29 April 2011 (Abstracts 31 December 2010)

updated: 
Tuesday, November 9, 2010 - 2:49pm
Notre Dame University, Lebanon

To celebrate the centennial of Ameen Rihani's Book of Khalid, the Department of English, Translation and Education at Notre Dame University – Lebanon, invites scholars to the Second International Conference on Lebanese-American Literary Figures, titled "Ameen Rihani's Arab-American Legacy: From Romanticism to Postmodernism." Rihani's travelogues, correspondence, poetic, and prose works, especially The Book of Khalid, testify to his deep sense of Romanticism and Modernism. His eagerness to launch a cultural, political, economic, social, and spiritual revolution, one which would question Western and Eastern traditional norms and propose new systems of thought, is an expression of his universality.

Re-Considering John Dos Passos - ALA 2011 (May 26-29, Boston, MA)

updated: 
Tuesday, November 9, 2010 - 2:13pm
Victoria M. Bryan

In recent years, John Dos Passos has fallen to somewhat low priority in critical study, but the few publications that do exist since the 1970s are engaging and compelling and stand as proof that this author deserves further consideration in our field. This individual panel proposal for ALA's 2011 convention hopes to illustrate the value of continuing to engage in scholarly research, critical conversation, and/or pedagogical approaches to John Dos Passos in the 21st century. Papers of about 20 minutes/10 pages in length on various approaches to Dos Passos's work will be considered for inclusion on the panel. Please submit an abstract of about 250 to 500 words, a CV, and any requests for A/V equipment to Victoria M.

UPDATE: Global Mythology and World Cinema (1 January, 2011)

Global Mythologies and World Cinema
Edited by Mikel J. Koven (University of Worcester)
Updated Call for Papers

Global Mythology and World Cinema will be a collection of essays which discuss how a variety of world cinemas use their own indigenous cultural mythologies. The function of these myths and their filmic counterparts will vary from culture-to-culture and from film-to-film. The collection will argue against the extant paradigm of "mythic cinema", wherein the term "myth," co-opted by Jungians and Campbellians, refers to any vague perceived universal archetype. This collection will be about cultural specificity, not universal generalizations, regarding the sacred and how that sacred is manifested in world cinema.
