Call for Chapters - ReFocus: The Films of Guy Ritchie

Call for papers: a companion to Dennis Wheatley

updated: 
Monday, June 24, 2024 - 1:50pm
University of Southern Queensland
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, August 12, 2024

Dennis Wheatley sold around one million books a year at the height of his popularity and over 50  million in total. Britain’s ‘occult uncle’ shaped modern popular understanding of the weirdly esoteric and the darkly satanic in a way without parallel, but his books equally celebrated the luxuries of good wine and cigars, were adapted into successful films by Hammer, taught suspicion of the foreigner, described sex and sexuality in surprisingly frank terms for the era, influenced the Bond stories and the course of the Second World War, and drew on copious research.

deadline for submissions:

The SAMLA 96 General Call for Abstracts will be used to build programming from abstracts that did not resonate with any of our currently published CFPs. SAMLA will review all submissions internally, and accepted abstracts will either be placed on an extant panel or combined with other General Call abstracts to create new sessions. The General Call is open to any and all disciplines.

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee acceptance and placement, though we will work earnestly and diligently to place all abstracts.

Although there is no proscription against submitting multiple abstracts, each participant may present only one traditional paper per SAMLA conference.

The fashion system has been questioning for years how to decrease its negative impact on the environment and people, trying to improve individual elements: from natural, organic or recycled materials to zero-waste design methodologies, from slower production processes to socially responsible actions, from development of local supply chains to inclusive communication campaigns, from blockchain traceability of products to more reliable trend forecasts through artificial intelligence, from social engagement to large scale regulation. Thanks to the contribution of researchers, practitioners, and activists, a new awareness in civil society about the finite nature of materials and resources has been achieved, and the

To Make a Short Story Long: Theories of Adapting Short Fiction

updated: 
Monday, June 24, 2024 - 1:45pm
Glenn Jellenik/University of Central Arkansas
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, December 15, 2024

The adaptation of short stories goes back to the beginning of cinema and continues today, yet the practice receives relatively little critical attention. While much energy has been spent theorizing film adaptation of the novel, there exists virtually no systematic treatment of the practice of adapting short fiction.[1] Despite this lack, a close look suggests that the adaptation of short fiction represents differences of kind, and not just of degree, from that of the novel, differences that yield fertile ground for the adaptation-critic.

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 20, 2024

“Visibility and Invisibility in Southern Women’s Literature,” is an affiliated group session, hosted by the Elizabeth Madox Roberts Society.  One of the panel’s goals is to connect to the theme of SAMLA 96: “Seen and Unseen.”  In that spirit, the session coordinator invites papers that address the theme in a wide variety of ways, with the hope that this session will engender a rich and robust discussion of how the writing of Southern women has examined what is either visible or invisible, seen or unseen.  While the EMRS invites papers from all approaches, we are particularly interested in papers that emphasize how the theme is connected to gender or to the South–or both.

The Nuclear Age, Redux: Forms and Modes of Environmental Change Change in Transnational North American Literature and Culture

The last few years have seen a resurgence of interest in the nuclear – as both material reality and cultural phenomenon. On the one hand, the war in Ukraine has evoked memories of the previous nuclear disasters and stoked fears of a continued Cold War. On the other hand, politicians and economists are debating nuclear technology as a sustainable alternative to carbon-intense and fossil-based forms of energy. At the same time, popular texts such as the Oscar-winning movie Oppenheimer (2023) or the miniseries Chernobyl (2019) indicate a renewed fascination with both nuclear capabilities and post-apocalyptic scenarios. Have we entered a new nuclear age, or have we never truly been post-nuclear?

Centering belonging, identity, and equity in our hiring practices requires potentially profound changes within the profession and across our institutions. Undoubtedly, departments, service-based offices, and institutions may struggle to identify the kinds of changes that can be made and may meet resistance to these changes. This collection aims to identify key points in Rhetoric, Composition, and Writing Studies’ (RCWS) hiring practices that can be adjusted or revised to enhance the inclusivity and equity of the job market experience for both applicants and hiring committee members.
