Though the Internet has been around since the 1980s, the “Internet novel” as a genre has only really emerged in the last decade or so. We can think of Lauren Oyler’s Fake Accounts (2021), Patricia Lockwood’s No One Is Talking About This (2021), and Calvin Kasulke’s Several People Are Typing (2021) as notable recent examples. Each of these novels take as their topic the particular and peculiar confines of the digital world we live in. Lockwood has described this sensation as falling through a “long void that never reaches the bottom,” while Brandon Taylor claims that “the Internet Novel captures some of the weird Gothic horror that white people have come, by way of their new digital Calvinism, to accept as being inherent to digital life.”

Theology Without Walls: An Assessment and Critique

SHERM Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 1, 2024

In 1982 Robert Neville wrote, “The encounter of Christianity with the world’s other religions has shaken Christian theology to its foundations.” One recent response to this trauma is the so-called “theology without walls” movement, in which Neville has been an active participant. Unlike another response, namely comparative theology (which remains “confessional” or married to the truth of one’s starting or “home” religion), theology without walls is willing and eager to explore other religions—even non-religious sources—in what Jerry Martin calls “an effort to understand ultimate reality as fully as possible.”

Call for Proposals: The Films of Bernardo Bertolucci

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 15, 2023

The work of Bernardo Bertolucci (1941-2018), in its preoccupations, scope and politics, exemplifies that of the post-war generation of radical European auteurs: initial films made in the shadow of Neo-Realism, and under the influence of the French New Wave (The Grim Reaper, Before the Revolution); a full embrace of the events of 1968 (Partner, Agonia); a late modernist art cinema that interrogated the scandal of Italian war-time history and exerted a profound influence on other film-makers – particularly those of New Hollywood (The Conformist, The Spider’s Stratagem); a global “success de scandale” with Last Tango in Paris, which was still in the headlines half a century later, via #MeToo; a particularly 1970s

Panel on Transgenerational Trauma in Theatre and Performance (Comparative Drama Conference, Orlando, April 4-6, 2024)

Comparative Drama Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 15, 2023

In Dark Matter (2013),  Andrew Sofer observes that “[s]taging trauma poses a representational conundrum because trauma confounds chronology and eludes comprehension” (118). Yet the theatre has long been a site for exploring the effects of collective trauma from genocide, slavery, war, environmental disaster, and forced displacement. Building on existing trauma studies scholarship and the work of psychologists such as Cathy Caruth and Judith Herman, whose research highlights trauma’s resistance to coherent, chronological narrative and simple representation, we are seeking papers for a special panel focusing on transgenerational trauma as it is expressed in dramatic literature and performance.

ACLA 2023 - Mediterranean Comparisons: Literature Beyond Borders

The Mediterranean has often been considered a transitional space—a rite of passage, an interval between borders, a route to conquest.  But what of the Mediterranean as a context and a framework in itself?  How might notions of ‘man,’ ‘nation,’ ‘empire,’ ‘center,’ and ‘periphery’ be reformulated when looked at from the perspective of the sea? What does comparative literature look like when the Mediterranean is viewed not only as a sea in which cultures exist and literatures are produced but also as a context or a framework in which they can be reassessed?

Friday, September 15, 2023

The Medieval and Renaissance Drama Society (MRDS) will honor V. A. Kolve (1934-2022) with a panel of topics on medieval drama at the International Congress on Medieval Studies at Western Michigan University, May 9-11, 2024. The Play Called Corpus Christi has been especially influential in medieval English drama studies, and its arguments about the significance of laughter, play, game, comic action, and time and space in the English biblical plays continue to shape the critical conversation. The MRDS invites those who have been influenced by Kolve’s work on early drama, or who studied or worked with him, to celebrate his legacy with papers that respond to or converse with Kolve’s contributions to the field.
