Not Your Mother’s Bodice Rippers: The Romance Genre in the 21st Century

Editor: Susan Fanetti

 

 

The enduring stereotype of the romance novel is the dramatic cover depicting the bare-chested, Fabio-modeled “hero” holding the swooning “heroine” draped over his arm, her wild hair flowing and her bountiful pale breasts swelling from her torn dress. Hence the term “bodice-ripper.”

Since the affective turn in the early 1990s, the humanities and social sciences have witnessed a profound and renewed interest in how feelings operate; their relationship to both the human, the nonhuman (or more than human), and other feelings. As researchers, teachers and artists, we often struggle with the place and status of emotions in creative processes, institutions, the workplace, classrooms, and in our own research. How do we feel about all of this?

The Persuasive Power of Nostalgia: An Emerging Genre

Ryerson University
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, November 10, 2019

Many scholars have examined the ways in which nostalgia has functioned and evolved throughout history from its clinical classification as a syndrome/disease to its romantic re-classification as the pursuit of a golden age. More recent literature has attempted to identify the different subcategories of nostalgia that have emerged within modernity and the extent to which it functions as both a spatial and temporal phenomenon.

Washington Irving and the Theater (ALA 2020)

Sunday, November 3, 2019 - 7:06am
The Washington Irving Society
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 15, 2020

The Washington Irving Society invites proposals for a panel connecting Washington Irving and his contemporaries to the theater. As a native New Yorker, Irving was a lifelong theater goer and even aspired to become a playwright while living abroad. His relationship with playwright John Howard Payne and Frankenstein author Mary Shelley, in fact, developed during this time in England when he attempted to write for the theater. As we continue to celebrate the 200th anniversary of The Sketch Book (1819-1820), stage performances of stories from the collection, such as “Rip Van Winkle” and “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” are welcomed, but we open the panel to stage productions of Irving and his other writing, too.

 

Washington Irving and Film (ALA 2020)

The Washington Irving Society
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 15, 2020

The Washington Irving Society invites proposals for any topic related to film adaptations of Irving’s biography and texts. Because we continue to celebrate the 200th anniversary of The Sketch Book (1819-1820), dramatizations of stories from the collection, such as “Rip Van Winkle,” “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” and the Christmas stories, are welcomed, but we open the panel to analyses of other texts and representations of Irving as well. From Joseph Jefferson (1829-1905) as Rip Van Winkle on the silent screen to Tim Burton’s Sleepy Hollow (1999) and the more recent television show “Sleepy Hollow” (2013-2017), interpretations of Irving vary dramatically, and we hope to explore what has entertained audiences for more than a century.
