Metacritic Journal for Comparative Studies and Theory

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 15, 2018

Metacritic Journal for Comparative Studies and Theory calls for the December issue of the Journal, welcoming a non-themed collection of papers written by established scholars and young researchers alike. Would-be contributors are invited to send articles illustrating the complexities of their field of choice, engaging with the literary and cultural theory so as to promote reading in a customized framework that privileges interdisciplinarity and self-reflection. We highly appreciate critical efforts to tackle contemporary fictional works while connecting them to philosophical attempts to theorize their cultural context. Especially encouraged are cultural, historical, and theoretical considerations suspicious of grand narratives.

Deadline Extended: Spenser's Ethics (RSA 2019)

Friday, July 13, 2018 - 11:33am
Renaissance Society of America/International Spenser Society
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, August 1, 2018

Spenser's Ethics Where should we look in Spenser’s writing to reconstruct the poet’s ethics? Or a Spenserian ethic? Should we look to the legendary virtues that organize the books of The Faerie Queene? To the various forms that his fictions take? To the figures of speech through which he constructs (and reconstructs) ideas and conceptual categories? To the kinds of readers and readings his work has attracted and/or fashioned? This panel seeks papers that investigate the tension between the requirements we bring to the texts and authors we champion and the capacity for writing to shape our evaluations.

CFP: NeMLA 2019 panel

Washington, DC: March 21-24, 2019 (deadline 9/30/18)

The boom in contemporary scholarship on transmedia storytelling, media convergence, and narrative remediation has largely focused on the interactions between old and new media modes in our digital age. But to what extent have literary narratives exhibited similarly transformative cross-media/cross-genre exchanges during earlier periods in media history? This panel examines how literary fiction was adapted, remediated, and remixed by popular media and performance platforms during the mass culture explosion of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
