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.

Fourth Screenwriting Research Network International Conference

The Screenwriting Research Network is a research group that began in late 2006 within the Louis Le Prince Research Centre, at the Institute of Communication Studies (ICS), University of Leeds. The group grew into a real international network when it became clear that interested scholars tended to come from across the world, but were isolated. We have held conferences in Leeds (2008), in Helsinki (2009) and in Copenhagen (2010). The fourth conference will take place in Brussels (2011).

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.
