I am currently seeking chapter submissions for an edited volume celebrating the centenary in 2026 of A. A. Milne’s The World of Pooh.  As classics from the “golden age” of children’s literature, Milne’s Pooh stories have received considerable attention from critics and fans over the years; however, less critical attention has been devoted to the continuing relevance of the Pooh phenomenon in contemporary children’s culture.  As recent critics have discussed, the Pooh stories are complex and multifaceted, written in many different modes and employing a vast array of different narrative styles and techniques; they have also undergone transformation and adaptation into a plethora of related cultural artefacts.

2018 marks the bicentennial of the publication of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. The 1818 edition was the first of three distinct publications (1818, 1823, and 1831), with the differences between the first and last made visible through the framed collation available in The Pennsylvania Electronic Edition [http://knarf.english.upenn.edu/], painstakingly edited by Stuart Curran during the 1990s. The differences between the 1818 and 1831 editions are the most dramatic, offering material for the ongoing debates over the editorial influence of William Godwin, Shelley’s father, and her husband, Percy Bysshe Shelley, as well as the Mary’s degree of creative control.

Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton swept the theatre awards season of 2016 for its inventive mix of hip hop, history, political relevance, and casting choices. In the avalanche of accolades that the show was awarded, the critical discourse is only starting to emerge that demonstrates how the show has pioneered many areas, yet does have weaknesses that underpin the framework of the musical. This panel seeks to evaluate the show, the ways it has resonated with audiences, and consider the critical conversation developing outside of traditional theatre scholars. Some possible topics to consider involve the show’s depiction of women, perspectives on U.S.

Creating Safer Spaces in English Composition Courses After the 2016 Election

Northeast Modern Language Association - 2018 Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

This roundtable will look at pedagogical strategies for examining the 2016 election in Standard Freshman English Composition courses. English Composition instructors are struggling with approaching relevant concepts (ex. argument) and reading selections that do not alienate portions of the classroom with every choice. While it would be ideal, it is not necessarily feasible or responsible to be bi-partisan with every lesson plan. Submissions should present pedagogical approaches that stimulate constructive inquiry, application of course concepts, and/or address concerns of partisan discourse (in the texts, by instructors, or students).

C19 Conference (2018): Genealogies of Homonationalism

Homonationalism has typically been used to name a late-twentieth and twenty-first century phenomenon in which gay and lesbian rights discourse has achieved power, in part, by donning the rhetoric of U.S. exceptionalism. Yet Jasbir Puar’s 2013 re-articulation of homonationalism as a “facet of modernity and a historical shift” also points to an underexplored set of questions pertinent to nineteenth-century American Studies: What are the deeper genealogies of homonationalism? What forms does it take in periods prior to the popularization of the “homosexual” as a type in Euro-American sexology? What earlier iterations of nationalist homosociality also comprise something like a sexual politics?

The Hollywood studio system was a well-oiled machine that produced some of the most important films in history. From innovative production practices to courageous content, the studios created big business out of popular culture. Incredibly dynamic, the studio system regularly sparked creativity and ingenuity, yet was often times oppressive, as well.
