Tuesday, November 30, 2021

In this seminar, we hope to rethink long-held associations between novel and nation-state in light of recent insights from oceanic studies, archipelagic studies, as well as transatlantic, transpacific, and Indian Ocean contexts. What kinds of genres and narrative frameworks unfold from a maritime, as opposed to land-based, perspective? How do novelists negotiate these commitments across multiple scales—and what ways of reading emerge by centering islands, coasts, ports, and other liminal spaces?

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 31, 2022

 I am recruiting contributors for a collection of scholarly essays with the working title Starcrossed Century: Astrology in Global Society from World War One to Covid. The book is designed to address the identification of the history of astrology with "premodern" history. The historiography of astrology is very active and intellectually exciting, but it focuses almost entirely on the period before 1800. Yet never have there been more astrological believers and practitioners than today. So far I have committments for two essays, one (by me) on American astrologers and COVID, and one on astrology and identity in the sixties counterculture. I want to avoid too heavy a focus on the Anglophone world (although I would love a serious essay on astrology

The Area of Esotericism, Occultism, and Magic at the Southwest Popular/American Culture Association seeks papers for a special panel for its annual conference this February 23-26 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, which focuses on the adaptation of esoteric, occult, and magical texts into the medium of film.  While the direct adaptation of such texts into the cinematic medium is vanishingly rare (a notable example, characteristically obscure but intriguing, being the 2003 filmic adaptation of Austin Spare's Earth Inferno; by contrast, the other most notable example, The Wizard of Oz, eclipses the Theosophical origins of its adapted source text with its cinematic fame), suggestion or simulation of such texts in reception, reference, or placement
