The Réseau Art Nouveau Network, as part of its 2023 activities, is organising a series of ten online conferences addressed to a scientific and professional audience, although the particularity of the theme will certainly arouse the interest and curiosity of the large community of Art Nouveau enthusiasts. After the success of 2022, this second series of conferences is dedicated to "Restoration". Architects, craftsmen and professionals are invited to present Art Nouveau places and spaces that have been restored, conserved and converted. We want to highlight good practice in the restoration of different materials and the solutions adopted that respect and enhance the spirit of the place.

Sunday, November 20, 2022

It has been decades since linguistics began to transcend beyond the study of structure. Linguistics has departed from the confines of phonetics and phonology (the study of linguistic sounds), morphology (the study of word formation), syntax (the study of the structure of phrases, clauses, and sentences), and semantics (the study of meanings). Countless studies have been undertaken involving linguistics and other related disciplines.

ABOUT THE SEMINAR

The 20th century has been characterized by the expansion of the mass media and the emergence of mass culture. Photography, cinema, radio, television, music and video games have played a fundamental role in the dissemination, production and reproduction of images and ideas which shaped collective mentalities in the twentieth century.
This CFP is aimed at those researchers who are researching in popular culture in Spain through photography, cinema, television, radio, music or video games. The format of the seminar will be hybrid, being able to present a communication (10 minutes) in person or online, in Spanish or in English.

No matter how many years have passed since the end of the Golden Age of Hollywood, this era never seems to leave the popular imagination. James Dean and Judy Garland remain household names; modern celebrities still seek to emulate the glamour of this bygone time; and audiences still go to see contemporary biopics and television shows about stars such as Marilyn Monroe, Joan Crawford, and Bette Davis. There is something about this moment in American moviemaking that grabbed the public’s attention and has never let go, even as the larger cinematic landscape continues to change dramatically.

WATER

The sea is calm tonight.

The tide is full, the moon lies fair

Upon the straits; on the French coast the light

Gleams and is gone; the cliffs of England stand,

Glimmering and vast, out in the tranquil bay.                     

(Matthew Arnold, “Dover Beach”)

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 4, 2022

Modern Language Studies, the journal of the Northeast Modern Language Association, is seeking reviews for the winter and summer 2023 issues. In recent years, the temperature has risen around free speech debates, and books on censorship and free speech come out with such frequency that it is hard to keep abreast of the new scholarship. I am interested in receiving reviews and review essays on academic books that relate to free speech. The books to be reviewed can center on any historical, geographical, or disciplinary context, and the reviews and review essays can be written from (almost) any theoretical perspective.Keywords: free speech, freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom of the press, liberty of the press, censorship.
