Transformative Works and Cultures
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 1, 2024

Due in part to well-publicised advancements in generative AI technologies such as GPT-4, there has been a recent explosion of interest in – and hype around – Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies. Whether this hype cycle continues to grow or fades away, AI is anticipated to have significant repercussions for fandom (Lamerichs 2018), and is already inspiring polarised reactions. Fan artists have been candid about using creative AI tools like Midjourney and DALL-E to generate fan art, while fanfiction writers have been using ChatGPT to generate stories and share them online (there are 470 works citing the use of these tools on AO3 and 20 on FanFiction.net at the time of writing).

We are looking for new chapters for our first year composition textbook Digitally Mediated Composing and You: A Beginners Guide to Understanding Rhetoric and Writing in an Interconnected World 

We are looking for writers to contribute four new chapters in Digitally Mediated Composing and You. Because these chapters are filling gaps in an existing text, the topic and direction of each chapter is predetermined, as is the format, but each chapter should be written in the unique voice of the author, and there is a lot of room for experimentation and play within the format!

Generative AI is changing how we conceptualize writing and thus thinking and creation. As scholars of literature and writing, we are uniquely positioned to reflect on these changes. To this end, this panel aims to spark interdisciplinary conversations about AI and its relation to writing, the writing process, and writing instruction. We hope to encourage an inclusive forum for exchanging perspectives, experiences and practices.

We find ourselves in a landscape of failure. We have failed to reach every climate goal we have set, and there is no returning to an unpolluted world. Institutions have failed their workers, resulting in a resurgence of industrial action and defiance. On the international stage, governments have failed migrants and refugees, leading to unprecedented levels of displacement. 

 

Can something productive be drawn from failing? How have past failures – of revolution, of technology, of selfhood – been put to constructive ends? And how might failure be mobilised as a new site of resistance?

 

Jordan Peele's Generic Renovations

ACCUTE, Congress 2024
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 17, 2023

With 2017’s Get Out, Jordan Peele burst out of the confines of sketch comedy and announced himself as one of the most original voices in contemporary cinema. Part and parcel of Peele’s success was his undeniable mastery of–and facility with–generic conventions. Get Out has been ascribed a range of genre labels, from psychological thriller to political horror, black comedy to sci-fi, zombie movie to horror verité. Peele himself has added fuel to the fire by musing that his film is a “social thriller” and a “documentary” that “subverts the idea of all genres.” Since the success of his first film, Peele has released a pair of even more generically ambitious and ambiguous films: Us (2019) and Nope (2022).

“Modern?” CFP

 

Saint Louis University—Madrid, June 7-8, 2024

 

The OED defines “modern” as “being in existence at this time; current, present,” but also as something that is “opposed to the remote past.” Given that the concepts of “past,” “present” and “future” are not fixed, but, to paraphrase Einstein, illusory, the meaning of “modern” itself is hard to pin down.

As countries of the Global North continue to reshape their immigration policies to tighten the

legal/illegal movement of Global Southerners into and through their borders, globalization

announces itself as doubly edged, having positive economic benefits and undesirable

consequences on both sides of the global divide. Yet, with the twentieth-century surge in

migration, a noticeable trend in African migrant fiction like Mbue’s How Beautiful We Were and

Indian diasporic novels, such as Sahota’s The Year of the Runaways, including films like Amata’s

Black November, is that while much of global migration remains north-directed, with the Global
