CALL FOR PAPERS

Words and Notes in the Nineteenth Century (London, 2-3 July 2007)

Focusing on a century that fostered a growth industry in musical writing
of many kinds (musical novels, programme notes, musical poetry, music
appreciation texts, journalism, scientific treatises, biography, etc.),
this conference seeks to address three main questions. How is music
conceptualized in various textual situations/locations between c.1789 and
1914? How can we best approach the relationships between music and texts?
In what ways might comparative study of different languages, genres or
cultural contexts help us explore the workings of word-music
relationships?

2007 Society for Cinema and Media Studies Conference

March 8-11, 2007

I am currently seeking papers for the following panel:

Queer(ing) Melodrama

Recent theories of genre encourage thinking of melodrama not as a singular
generic category, but as a sustained modality in all popular American films
(among other national industries). As such, melodrama would possess a
democratizing potential for personifying social forces within a visual realm, thus
contesting the ideologies and binaries that produce cultural "others."

Since the 1990s, recent Anglophone Caribbean writing has broken the
literary mold set by the text of the 1950s onwards by foregrounding the
trope of sex and sexuality, along with the relational categories of race,
class, and gender to give a fuller understanding of Caribbean reality.
There is now a pressing need for critical, scholarly, examination of this
new dimension of Caribbean literature.

I invite papers that examine the representation of sex and sexuality as
illustrated in the poetry, fiction, and autobiographical work of
contemporary women writers of the Anglophone Caibbean.
