Moorti, Sujata

Call for articles about The Michael Jackson Trial
For special issue of the international journal 'Social Semiotics'
 
* How does Michael Jackson's trial, and the associated media spectacle,
mobilises ideas about gender, race, class, the body, queer, sexuality,
power, childhood/adulthood, fandom and celebrity?
* What does the reporting tell us about phenomena such as the U.S.
televised trial, the media event, the use of chat shows and the role of
personal testimony?
* What are the socio-political contexts and implications of this major
media spectacle?
 
The Michael Jackson ³pedophilia² trial has become a staple of global media.

Call for Paper Proposals for Proposed Panel "Gender, Sexuality and Time in
Renaissance England" at the Renaissance Society of America's 2006 meeting in
San Francisco
Recently, feminist and queer theorists have attempted to reconsider the
politics of time. Most of these critical interventions, however, have been based
in 19th and 20th-century understandings of time. This panel will consider
intersections of gender, sexuality and time in 16th and 17th-century England
in an effort to add an early modern perspective to some of these discussions.
Papers on particular texts, authors and genres, as well as broader
explorations of temporal and historical thinking and practices are all welcome.

For the Renaissance Society of America Conference in San Francisco (March 23-25, 2006).

This panel seeks to re-examine literary representations of revenge in early
modern culture. Papers are welcomed from across genres, countries, languages,
and disciplinary/theoretical approaches.

Much scholarly attention has been given to the mimetic function of revenge and
the authorizing narratives used to justify (or proscribe) vengeance.
Reevaluation of these issues is certainly welcomed. However, this panel seeks
to open the field of inquiry even further.

Topics for consideration may include, for example, the following:
