This flightless, multi-site conference (Sept. 18-21, 2019) invites interdisciplinary attention to confluences between environmental and religious perspectives and practices in the long Anglophone nineteenth century (1780-1900). Since that century, anthropogenic climate change has rapidly accelerated, and in response to this legacy we will avoid air travel by digitally connecting events at several conference sites in the United States and the United Kingdom. In addition, this method of networking, by lowering barriers of cost and transportation, promises to enable a more diverse and inclusive range of participation than is often possible at international conferences.

Critical Approaches to the Horror-Comedy Film - Chapters Sought

With a cinematic legacy that traces back to the silent film era, the horror-comedy hybrid is a cornerstone of American filmmaking and yet, it is a particularly difficult sub-genre to pin down. By representing what Noël Carroll referred to as opposite sides of the same coin, horror and humor tap into similar aspects of cultural dread in order to create in audiences the specific physiological experiences of fear and laughter, respectively. Horror-comedy films speak to our emotional connection to film and yet, there is limited critical analysis devoted to this sub-genre. This edited collection is our answer to that oversight.

Linguistic Reimaginings in Speculative Fiction (MLA 2020)

MLA 2020
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 20, 2019

New worlds and beings often entail alternate modes of communication and understanding. Posing speculative circumstances, lands, and creatures, works of science fiction and fantasy are therefore particularly conducive to linguistic reimaginings. Indeed, numerous speculative fiction narratives foreground a linguistic component: seemingly peculiar languages and unusual linguistic constructions drive characters to grapple with notions of communication, alterity, and humanity.

MLA 2020: “The Unbearable Wrongness of Being”: Abjection, Power, and the Possibilities of the Human in Popular Culture

In her conversation with Katherine Mckittrick, Sylvia Wynter reminds us that black/lesbian/feminists in the sixties such as June Jordan took up and further elaborated “the color line’s range of subjectively experienced nonnormalcy of being.” They voiced their outcry against what Jordan defines as our “unbearable wrongness of being.” This panel examines the presidential theme of being human by shifting our gaze to the abject spaces and formulations that function to deny humanity to certain subjects. To create the “human” normative literary and cultural production interprets racialized and queer subjects through the lens of social death.

“Reading the Landscape”

The Second Annual City College of New York Graduate Literature Conference

Conference Date: May 17, 2019

Landscapes inspire contemplation. Some consider landscapes to be natural while others see them as something created by effacing people and their work. Much literature centers on relationships between people and landscapes and how these relationships are shaped by economic forces.
