CFP: Reverse Colonization in Victorian Fiction

This panel will examine the colonial adventure setting within the very
streets of London, including fiction that describes London in the same
manner in which the colonies are described and addresses the fear of
the colonies "coming home" and taking over London. A variety of
approaches is welcome in discussing the Victorian concerns of progress
and decline. Please send 250-word abstracts via email to Jaime Jordan,

Atlantikos is an online peer-reviewed journal published by graduate students in the English department at Michigan State University. It represents the most recent work by the most active graduate scholars in the field of Transatlantic Studies, broadly defined as the study of textual, cultural, and performative productions that have multiple resonances across Europe, Africa, and the Americas. We are now accepting essays written by graduate students and others in the field of Transatlantic Studies for publication in our fall 2006 and spring 2007 issues. We encourage both traditional and innovative scholarship addressing critical, cultural, and theoretical issues related to the field.

CFP: Desire and the Televisual

Call for Papers for a Proposed Panel for
SCMS (Society for Cinema and Media Studies) 2007 Conference
Chicago, IL, March 8-11, 2007

Since its inception, television has functioned as a battleground between
"high" and "low" culture, sometimes derided as a "vast wasteland," other
times championed for heralding a public media revolution by illustrating
that everyone can find their place on and through the small screen.
This panel, however, will take a step back from the political arguments
about television's position in the cultural and social economy in order
to focus on a more personal relationship-that between television and its
viewer(s).

CFP: Science Fiction and the Animal (9/30/06; journal issue)

Science Fictions Studies invites proposals for a special issue on The Animal, exploring the variety of ways that science fiction may be analysed from the perspective of animal studies. Animals are among the oldest metaphors through which humanity has defined itself. We welcome both papers that deal with representations of animals and the metaphorical use of the category of speciesism to enforce social boundaries and establish a humanist subject, and also papers that consider our changing material relationships with animals as they are mediated by changing technologies.
