Call for Short Articles and Digital Media Projects on Queer and Psychoanalytical Considerations of "The Screen"

Wednesday, January 30, 2013 - 10:28pm
The Qouch

The Qouch, an online publication of The Queer Psychoanalysis Society, is looking for short articles and digital media projects for an on-going series on "The Screen". We are interested in exploring the various functions of the concept of the screen from film theory and media studies to psychoanalytic concepts of "screen memory" and "projection" as they relate to modern theories and practices of gender and sexuality.

Queer Relations: Revising the Victorian Family (proposal deadline: 1 April. 2013)

Wednesday, January 30, 2013 - 10:12pm
Dr Duc Dau, University of Western Australia and Dr Shale Preston, Macquarie University

We invite contributions for an upcoming volume of essays which examine the Victorian family through a queer lens. The Victorian family can be taken to mean the nineteenth-century nuclear or extended family, or the family of texts associated with the Victorian period (e.g. nineteenth-century and neo-Victorian texts). We are looking for exciting interrogations into the discourse of the Victorian family. These interrogations can focus on untraditional familial arrangements, non-normative relationships, polyamorous attachments, queer families in disparate communities/locations (e.g.

Evolution of Blackness in American Theatre: Reconciling Amiri Baraka and Suzan-Lori Parks

Wednesday, January 30, 2013 - 7:58pm
Linh Trang My Pham/ Wesleyan College

"Why Baraka and Parks?" one may ask. Certainly, both are gifted playwrights, whose works can be considered the most influential of their generations. Nonetheless, besides the fact they are both African Americans, there seems to be little connection between the two artists. One, albeit brilliant, is a notoriously extreme Black nationalist and the other, a free-spirited, Oberammergau-loving genius. Simply put, as artists, they pursue different things. Therefore, it is hard to make an adequate comparison between them. Still, as I will explain later in this paper, there are points where their paths cross and certain aspects where their visions of theatre would come into direct confrontation.

The Great War and Modern Literature (MLA Special Session 2014 [Jan. 9-12] ; proposals by March 1, 2013)

Wednesday, January 30, 2013 - 2:14pm
Marguerite Helmers

I invite proposals for a special session at the 2014 MLA Convention in Chicago (January 9-12, 2014). As the centenary of the First World War approaches in 2014, it is an appropriate time to reflect on the significance of the Great War to literature, particularly its role in fiction published from 1970 to the present. The war is either taken as the subject of or figures into works by Pat Barker, Sebastian Barry, Sebastian Faulks, Mark Helprin, Alan Hollinghurst, Michael Morpurgo, Charles and Caroline Todd, and Jacqueline Winspear, among many others. Considerations of gender, class, and race are opportune, as well as perspectives drawn from animal studies. Proposals that address the 2014 convention theme Vulnerable Times are particularly welcome.

[UPDATE] The Cultural Politics of Memory 14-16 May 2014

Wednesday, January 30, 2013 - 11:31am
Centre for Critical and Cultural Theory Cardiff University

The politics of remembering and forgetting are important social and cultural issues. The authority, power and resources with which to create hegemonic versions of the past – to give authoritative accounts that are available in the public domain – are largely the property of institutions. Questions of power, voice, representation and identity are central to Cultural and Collective Memory.

Edith Wharton and The Custom of the Country: Centennial Reappraisals; Symposium 22/ 23 August 2013, Liverpool Hope University

Edith Wharton and The Custom of the Country: Centennial Reappraisals
Symposium: 22 and 23 August 2013, Liverpool Hope University, UK
Symposium Directors: William Blazek (Liverpool Hope University) and Laura Rattray (University of Glasgow)
Call for Papers:
2013 marks the 100th anniversary of the publication of Edith Wharton's much-read and much-analyzed novel The Custom of the Country. Described as the writer's "greatest book" by Hermione Lee in her 2007 biography, and listed by Wharton herself at the end of a long and prolific career as one of her own favourite works, The Custom of the Country arguably remains the author's most complex and controversial novel.
