Panel: Identity in Verse: Poetry in the Seventeenth Century Atlantic

This panel for the McNeil Center for Early American Studies May 2025 “Where is Early America?” conference invites papers on the relationship between poetry and identity, broadly conceived, in the seventeenth-century. Recent work on colonial English poetry has identified both ruptures and continuities between canonical early American English poetry and its metropolitan counterparts, upsetting strict delineation between “English” and “colonial” poetry. Likewise, scholars have identified the ways in which colonial ideology is inflected in such areas as amatory and religious verse written and read on both sides of the Atlantic.

Ever since Steven Russell, Wayne Wittanen, and J. M. Graetz, three MIT employees who fantasized about bringing Edward E. Smith’s (1890-1965) Skylark novels (1915-1966) to the big screen, developed Spacewar! (1961), one of the first digital games created and a clear inspiration for games that would be designed in the following decades, the game industry has grown exponentially. As Egenfeldt-Nielson et al. have stated (2024), “[i]n the historical blink of an eye, video games have colonized our minds and invaded our screens” (2).

Medieval Practices of Adaptation (ICMS 2025)

At no time has intellectual culture been more committed to the notion of prior “authority” than in the Middle Ages.  Yet medieval adaptations of earlier works and media objects, including classical and scriptural writings, are often boldly inventive: a paradox due for serious consideration.  Existing contributions to Adaptation Studies nearly always focus on post-medieval adaptation (such as modern adaptations of medieval sources).  In contrast, for this session we invite papers that redirect the insights of Adaptation Studies to build a more coherent sense of medieval ideas and practices of adaptation, especially in cases involving radical or unintuitive changes of language, medium, genre, style, context, or audience.

What is a good life? Scholars often attempt to answer this question by examining people’s ideals. Exemplified by Joel Robbins’ call of “the anthropology of the good,” anthropologists are encouraged to make ethnographic inquiries into qualities that are “imaginatively conceived” to be desirable and even “outstripped” the immediate realities (2013, 457). In other words, the scholarly examination of the “good life” has long been domesticated in the realm of thoughts and beliefs, insulated from that of the lived experiences.

ICMS 2025: Exploring Complaint in the Middle Ages and Early Modern Period - Traditions and Transformations of Complaint

updated: 
Monday, July 8, 2024 - 4:03pm
Krista Telford (UNC Chapel Hill) & Mounawar Abbouchi (UGA) | International Congress on Medieval Studies 2025
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 15, 2024

Complaint is as easy to identify in medieval and early modern literature as it is challenging to define. One need not look far in premodern literature to find a figure railing against Fortune, a forsaken woman grieving her loss, or a character critiquing the injustices of society in mournful, sometimes bitter, tones. A polymorphous literary form, complaint can function as satire, prayer, and elegy; yet it is also a distinct form, sometimes described as a mode or a genre.Though complaint is inextricably linked to grief, the role it plays in grief management has been shown to vary greatly, sometimes working to temper or mobilize a character’s grief and at other times paradoxically multiplying it.

​In our postmodern world there are a lot of questions that should be re-considered and re-defined. What does it mean to fight against colonialism and racism in the world of migration crisis and xenophobic attitudes towards minorities? What does it mean to be a postcommunist country in the face of the common nostalgia for order and rules? How is it possible to have a national identity being aware of the relative character of every national feature?

MultiPlay is delighted to announce that we are working on a new edited collection – Video Game Monsters: A Compendium

Monsters have been the foundation of the video game industry. They’ve been the bosses to beat, the enemies to avoid, the NPCs we’ve sometimes forged unlikely bonds with. Monsters are the true avatar of video games, and there has been an increase of work and attention in this area, such as Player v.s Monster (Svelch, 2023). MultiPlay feels the time is right for a special collection examining monsters in all of their video game forms, creating a thorough compendium of the monstrous history of video games. As Martin points out, video games studies has barely began to reckon with monsters (2023, np)

Literature and More-Than-Human Encounters in India: A 2-day workshop on Human-Wildlife Conflict in Indian Literature

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, July 15, 2024

The increasing prevalence of human-wildlife conflict (HWC) in India has become a critical environmental and social issue. As human populations expand and encroach on natural habitats, interactions between humans and wildlife have escalated, often resulting in tragic outcomes for both. Discourses surrounding HWC are often deeply anthropocentric, framing wildlife primarily as predators and emphasizing human losses, such as crop and livestock damage, typically tied to economic activity. This perspective predominantly highlights negative interactions, with scant attention given to positive encounters or the broader ecological and cultural benefits of coexistence.
