This panel will address illustrative, pictorial, and digital treatments and adaptations of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. The novel has a 195-year history of illustration and depiction in a wide range of visual arts, media, and technologies—from the 1823 cover of Richard Brinsley Peake’s play Presumption to the first issue of the comic series Mary Shelley, Monster Hunter (February 2019). The novel’s “hyperadaptability” in visual form, to adopt Dennis Perry’s term, extends to a wide range of modes.

Call for Chapter Proposals: The City Speaks: Re-presenting Urban Spaces in Indian Literature [Edited Volume]

The city has been a zone of contention for a considerable amount of time in literature—a producer of narratives as well as a consumer. These cities have embodied their characters and their narratives in a way that is reflective of the city’s topology, genealogy, and living archaeology. Literature, therefore, often serves to excavate the cities through its representations, and is also, in turn, unearthed. Rather than visualising the city as a null-space that exists horizontally to frame the literary work, the cities in literary works across its myriad cultural and national histories have turned more serpentine, more transgressive, and have moved in unpredictable trajectories.

Dear Colleagues,

 

Theere is one week left as the CFP for the Handbook of Research on Machine Ethics and Morality has been extended to December 2, 2019. Thank you to everyone who has submitted a proposal. I’m expecting a similarly robust exchange for this extended call. Again, I’m interested in approaches to the topic from the humanities, with exploration on rhetorics and philosophies of artificial intelligence, machine ethics, and moral machines.

An editor at Lexington Books, a division of Rowman & Littlefield, has expressed interest in this project.

Holidays are central components of culture. They can be celebratory or commemorative. They can be festive, merry, and joyous in their celebrations, or (also simultaneously) sombre, solemn, and reflective in their commemorations. They help us mark the calendar, highlight important sociocultural milestones, measure the passage of time, follow the turning of the seasons, and, in so doing, organize life and society.
