Deadline Extended: Pornographic Adaptations and Translations

Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association, Palm Springs, Nov. 7-10, 2024
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 15, 2024

In keeping with PAMLA's conference theme of "Translation in Action," this session invites papers that examine questions of translation and adaptation relevant to pornographic media, including but not limited to film and video, writing, and performance. I welcome papers covering any relevant period, topic, and method, from textual analysis to cultural histories to studies of pornographic production and consumption. Pornography provides an exemplary terrain on which to engage questions of adaptation as the eagerness of pornographers to adapt both low and high cultural works, from Twinklight (2010) to Spank Me, Mr. Darcy (2013), remains a reliable source of public fascination, humor, and outrage.

CFP: “Poetry and the Gothic” Edited Volume Call for Papers

Poetry has been an integral part of the Gothic mode since its inception. However, the connection between poetry and the Gothic seems a less explored area of critical inquiry, in comparison to fiction. While the Graveyard Poets and other Anglophone poetry movements are already considered foundational to the Gothic mode, our edited collection seeks to broaden the scope of what can be conceived of as “Gothic poetry” or poetry inspired by the Gothic.

 CFP:

Researchers have long confirmed the importance of studying food-related issues in the past and in the present-day world. During our interdisciplinary conference, we are going to concentrate on the relationships between food and memory. In what sense – and in what circumstances – can food be regarded as an identity-building factor? What role does it play in shaping our individual and collective memories? How can food studies deepen our knowledge on the social and cultural aspects of our lives? Why are food memories so often related to important experiences of individuals and societies?

Cyberfeminism is a fusion of the term 'cyber', denoting the act of steering, governing, and controlling, and 'feminism', which represents an activist movement dedicated to women's liberation and justice at various levels - local, national, and international. Cyber-feminism aims to bridge the gap between the historical and philosophical traditions of feminism and contemporary feminist initiatives both online and offline.

updated: 
Tuesday, May 7, 2024 - 12:51pm
Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association 2024 Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, June 16, 2024

This allied session on work in multi-ethnic literature of the United States (co-sponsored by MELUS) invites papers that explore work as a component of identity formation, especially as it intersects with gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, cultural identity, and citizenship. In the spirit of Moishe Postone’s antiproductivist Marxism, this panel is particularly interested in papers that present a “critique of labor in capitalism” rather than a “critique of capitalism from the standpoint of labor.” While papers that engage with work broadly from the traditional Marxist position are welcome, we are particularly excited about scholarship that theorizes work itself.
