Creative Authorship(s): Looking for Partners in Devising a Collaborative Funding Application

Ben Jonson frequently referred to his literary works as his ‘mind children’ in the paratext accompanying his printed plays, and he movingly reversed the analogy in his commemorative poem “On My First Sonne”: rendering tribute to the deceased child by styling him his father’s “best piece of poetry”. Jonson is associated with a bold renegotiation of authorship in the early modern period, but he was far from alone in turning to procreational metaphors in descriptions of his literary practice. Metaphors of this kind were useful to writers in suggesting a close relationship between author and text and to grapple with the notion of creative innovation vis-à-vis tradition.

The Velvet Light Trap
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 1, 2021

Over the past decade, the media ecology has been dramatically shifting with the advent of online “over-the-top” streaming services, the streaming wars that followed, and the platformization of the web. As the distance between big tech companies and legacy media players rapidly dwindles, rippling effects can be felt across industries, audience practices, regulatory frameworks, and more. Simultaneously, the rise of streaming services also continues to provoke further theorizations on topics that have concerned media scholars for decades regarding the asymmetrical dynamics of power and influence as it relates to globalization processes, representation, identity, politics, cultural and national mediations, and economic development.

The Frankfurt School in the US Today: The Intellectual Heritage of War Refugees (NeMLA 2022)

Max Horkheimer, Theodor W. Adorno, Erich Fromm and Herbert Marcuse - to name just a few intellectuals associated with the Frankfurt School who (by moving their institute from Frankfurt to Columbia University) fled Nazi Germany to the US - have all had far-reaching influence on intellectual circles during the war and post-war era.
But they are also still - and one is inclined to say even more so - significant today, as they have shaped American thought and are to this day nurturing discussions and analyses in a wide range of intellectual fields. Past and current theoreticians like Fredric Jameson or Judith Butler are greatly indebted to the heritage of thinkers like Adorno or Benjamin (who died in exil before he could reach the US).

In the recent years, foreign language teaching has advocated for an increasingly intermedial and interdisciplinary approach, one that enables instructors to expand course materials and integrate a wide array of popular and current cultural products. Advanced courses in literature and culture can develop curricula that more liberally incorporate popular culture into teaching. On the contrary, lower advanced and intermediate courses must combine cultural components with the introduction or the review of grammar structures. This session seeks contributions that address the following: What are the challenges of transitioning from grammar-based to culture-based instruction in language classes?

This panel will explore the varying visual representation of transgender people in film and television. Peter Lehman’s Running Scared: Masculinity and the Representation of the Male Body explains the visual shame of the male body and could also begin to understand the complexity of the transgender body. Lehman describes it as “men have managed to keep out of the glare, escaping from the relentlessness activity of sexual definitions” (6).  Newer shows like Sense8 and films like Hedwig and the Angry InchA Fantastic Woman, and The Danish Girl allow for characters that have visually and complex personalities along with their visual body. They explore trans struggles in storylines that do not end with death.
