With Disney’s initial apathetic response to the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill which recently passed in the state of Florida, it is time to shed light on Disney’s complex relationship with the LGBTQIA2S+ community. Recently, there have been works which briefly discuss the relationship of queerness and Disney, such as Sean Griffin’s Tinker Bells and Evil Queens (2000), Melanie S. Kohnen Queer Representation, Visibility, and Race (2016), Jennifer Sandlin and Julie Garlen’s edited collection Disney, Culture, and Curriculum (2016), and Joseph Brennan’s edited collection Queerbaiting and Fandom (2019). However, the queer artist/contributor has yet to be the main topic of discussion.
This section of the academic journal “Sinestesieonline” is open to contributions about theatre and performing arts in all historical ages, forms and variations, in English, Italian and foreign languages. We use double blind peer review.
“Il Parlaggio” is the name created by Gabriele d’Annunzio for the amphitheatre in Vittoriale – a place of empathy, a cradle of emotions, a crossroads of cultures, a connection between antiquity and contemporaneity, an emblem of the “neverending show”.

Ominous Future, Damaged Present and Nostalgia for the Past: Return to Normalcy?
Less is more. Unclutter the mind. Spark joy. More than a generation has passed since Columbia University’s 1988 Summer Writers’ Festival brought together a roundtable for “Throwing Dirt on the Grave of Minimalism,” but it seems minimalisms are alive and well both in aesthetics and in lifestyles in the twenty-first century. What are the forms, styles, and genres of minimalism today? What is their relation to the heyday of minimalist sculpture, music, literature, and architecture in the 1960s through 1980s? Who are the practitioners of minimalism, and how are various minimalisms gendered, racialized, sexualized, and classed? And under what social, political, and economic conditions are these practitioners drawn to minimalism now?

James Joyce’s Ulysses first appeared in its entirety on February 2, 2022, on the occasion of his fortieth birthday. In this its centenary, as we naturally celebrate its remarkable literary achievement, we just as naturally take note, given the state of the world a hundred years on, of the circumstances of its composition and earlier appearance.
We are still looking for a few additional papers on age and gerontological readings within British and American literature and paraliterary texts of culture. While we encourage papers on the themes described below, we will gladly welcome papers focusing on literature representing earlier periods (pre-Victorian). We also welcome book reviews epertaining to the most recent literary studies on ageing in Brititsh and American culture.
The Routledge Companion to Ecopoetics offers comprehensive coverage of the vital and growing movement of ecopoetics. We understand the term ecopoetics as including innovative approaches to the entanglement of individuals, cultures, and languages with the natural systems that permeate and envelop them. We begin with the assumption that ecopoetics is not a genre such as ecopoetry or nature poetry, but rather a dynamic field of inquiry and a laboratory for new ways of knowing. The collection will be global in scope, with contributors drawn from a wide range of nations, ethnicities, and gender identities.

Ruptures and Resilience: English Studies in the Now
November 4-5, 2022

~“You may make a rupture, draw a line of flight, yet there is still a danger that you will reencounter organizations that restratify everything, formations that restore power to a signifier, attributions that reconstitute a subject . . .” (Deleuze & Guattari, 9)

Faculty and Independent Scholars from all disciplines are invited to
submit abstracts of no more than 150 words describing their 15 to 20
minute proposed presentations on topics related to language(s), literature,
theoretical analyses, and pedagogical applications of those subjects.
Several sessions at this year’s meeting will focus specifically on the conference
theme, so abstracts addressing this idea are particularly welcome:
Health Is Wealth.
Since its emergence, medieval disability studies has asked questions about the meanings of disability in the Middle Ages, the lived experiences of people with disabilities, and how scholars can apply the frameworks of disability studies to medieval texts. Although these questions have led to insightful and field-changing scholarship, much of this work centers the Western tradition. In order to explore a broader and more accurate view of disability in the global Middle Ages, we ask these same questions but with a focus on non-Western texts. This panel seeks presentations on any aspect of disability in the global Middle Ages, and we welcome submissions from across disciplines, including literature, art, history, religion, and philosophy.
The Charles Olson Society will sponsor a session at the annual Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture Since 1900, to be held February 23-25, 2023. We are interested in abstracts that examine the influence of Charles Olson and/or other Black Mountain Poets on poetic practices and their developments up to the present. A variety of poets took up the innovative practices of figures like Charles Olson, Robert Creeley, Robert Duncan, John Wieners, and others associated with Black Mountain. How have the practices of this fundamentally important school of poetics been extended, transformed, and/or resisted by other poets?
Victoriographies: A Journal of the Long Nineteenth Century is seeking article submissions and reviews from scholars. Victoriographies is fully peer-reviewed and published tri-annually by Edinburgh University Press. As we enter our second decade of publication, we are excited to include innovative work and to welcome emerging voices.
Continuing its project to explore the long nineteenth century and contemporary responses to the long nineteenth century, Victoriographies has transitioned to new editorship under Dr. Amy Huseby (Florida International University, U.S.) and Dr. Beth Palmer (University of Surrey, U.K.). Dr. Doreen Thierauf (North Carolina Wesleyan University, U.S.) will take over as Book Review Editor.
This edited collection would focus on the application of queer theory and queer approaches to Disney films that are infamous for queerbaiting, queer coding, and queer pandering, as well as the parodies of Disney films that stem from this.
Previous works such as Kay Turner and Pauline Greenhill’s The Transgressive Tales (2012) looks into the queer retellings of the Brothers Grimms' edited collection of tales. This collection seeks to go beyond the Brothers Grimm and showcase queer approaches to the Disney fairy tale. With the 'Don't Say Gay' Bill and the apathetic response, it is time to shed light on this academic area and the link between Disney fairy tale films and the queer community.
Recent debates on canonicity have focused on how canons are a product of social and historical conditions as well as of reception. Texts become canonical when they are felt to embody the spirit of an age or to voice concerns considered universal at a particular moment. But what about the texts themselves? Can any text become canonical in any way? Or are there any specific textual reasons for such an elevated status? This latter question is what our symposium wishes to address.
