Carryin’ the Banner: Critical Essays on the Newsies Film and Broadway Adaptation

Newsies, both as a film in 1992 and a Broadway show in 2012, has been a sleeper hit for all of its existence. Disney wrote the film off as a failure when it took roughly $15 million to make and only grossed $2.8 million – and yet, the film found a wide, willing, and devoted audience through VHS rentals and Disney Channel showings. The Newsies Broadway show was originally intended to be a licensed adaptation for high schools and colleges - and yet, the built-in audience was so eager for a Broadway adaptation that Disney Theatrical Productions decided to make the gamble.

Beyond Nancy Drew: U.S. Girls’ Series Fiction in the Mid-Twentieth Century, 1920-1970

As the series heroine par excellence, Nancy Drew has taken up most of the scholarly attention surrounding mid-century U.S. girls’ series, and for good reason given her popularity, longevity, and feminist leanings. Running from 1930 into the present day, Nancy has been foiling criminals for nearly a century, first as a spunky blond driving a roadster and then as a versatile  titian-haired girl in a convertible.

Researching the Influence of Feminist Film Theory

on 21st Century Films and TV Series

               

 

A growing number of scholars have acknowledged how the works of feminist scholars and feminist film scholars have influenced filmmakers and screenwriters (Radner and Stringer 2011; Roche 2014 and 2018; Maury and Roche 2020). The objective of this collected volume is to pursue inquiry of cross-fertilization between (intersectional) feminist (film) theory and films and TV series,           produced in the English-speaking world of the 21st century.

This Roundtable discussion welcomes submissions on any aspect of pre-pandemic college classroom access, post-pandemic college classroom access, or policies implemented in college classrooms post-pandemic which could limit access. Abstracts addressing the conference theme are especially welcome.  Due to the pandemic, instructors have all felt the strain change placed on our classrooms. However, these changes have brought to light important aspects of access at the university level previously regulated to individual or case-by-case discussions. This roundtable seeks to generate a wider conversation about how instructors handle access in the classroom, and what has improved or hindered access.

Taking into account the presidential theme for MMLA, 2022--“Post-Now”--, it is important to foreground the constituency of 'now', and what its discursive urgency means for this panel. While 'now' can be ontologically considered as the transient nature of the present moment in time, which is relative in nature (Einstein 14), its association to time can also be extended to understand the persistence of circumstances and ideas as situated in the present age, or the contemporary times (Dubreuil 44). Laurent Dubreuil links literature to temporality, mentioning how “literature does not exist before but rather after itself: we reconstruct and designate it without exhausting its signification” (Dubreuil 45).

Call for papers/articles
Derived from the Latin word littera which means “a letter of the alphabet,” literature has been predominantly associated with language, and has rarely been considered as intermedial. However, as recently underlined by researchers of intermediality, any form of communication involves all our senses, and so “[t]here are no purely visual, textual, or auditory media” (Bruhn & Schirrmacher 2021,p. 3).

For far too long the story of British history and culture (of Western history generally) has presented the presence of Africans within Britain as a product of the Atlantic slave trade. Not only is this figuring of Africans as first arriving in the British Isles as enslaved people simply inaccurate as a matter of historical fact, it carries deeply troubling and problematic categorical and ontological implications through casting the very identity of Africans and their descendants first and foremost as enslaved people in the historical imagination.

So we regurgitate ole talk, chew and re-chew, fling blame and cus you.
