CFP: Essays on Guy Maddin (4/1/07; collection)

updated: 
Sunday, January 28, 2007 - 8:00pm
David Church

  CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS:
    Contributors are currently sought for a collection of scholarly essays devoted to the films of Guy Maddin, one of the most distinctive, outlandish, and personal filmmakers. Though Maddin's international reputation has grown steadily over the past two decades, in-depth academic analyses of his work have been relatively few in number. This collection will attempt to redress that deficiency by bringing new material alongside several previously published essays, offering multiple perspectives on all things Maddin.
    Possible topics include:
  * postmodernism and its relatives (pastiche, irony, ambivalence, etc.)
  * themes of amnesia/incest/necrophilia

Levinas and Narrative

Guest Editors: Sandor Goodhart and Monica Osborne

Deadline for Submissions: 30 March, 2007

To date, there have been two major ways of understanding the work of Emmanuel
Levinas. In the philosophical tradition, Levinas first attracted the attention
of Jean-Paul Sartre as a reader of Husserl and the phenomenological tradition;
later, thanks to the work of Jacques Derrida and other poststucturalists,
Levinas acquired caché for his work on ethics and his critique of Heidegger.

John Hawley

Division 33 (Literature in English other than British and American)
plans a panel for the Chicago convention (12/27-30/07) on the following
topic: "Resistance to English in Anglophone Literature." Is English a
viable postcolonial language? Where does the Asmara Declaration of 2000
stand today? Can we speak meaningfully of "Englishes," and what might
their existence facilitate: Indian English vs. American English vs.
Nigerian English, etc. How does translation theory relate to questions
of authorial voice, authenticity, opposition to master discourses,
globalization of literary standards, choice of audience(s), etc.
250-word abstracts to John Hawley by March 15.
