The mind and body binarism and its correlation with the male and female as opposites has been a subject of debate among academic scholars for some time now. Feminists have challenged such dualism and the related assumptions by offering accounts of the relationship between subjectivity, corporeality and identity. These changes in attitudes towards corporeality have also led to a change in treatments of the female characters in literature who once represented as passive and vulnerable seem to have achieved autonomy and control of their bodies and thus their subjectivity.

ABO's pedagogy series, Concise Collections on Teaching Eighteenth-Century Women, seeks submissions for an article grouping on Teaching Women Travellers in the Eighteenth Century.
Writing about the reception of his essay collection The Souls of Black Folk (1904), W. E. B. Du Bois describes the text as a simultaneous mixture of clear messages and irreconcilable ambiguity. “A clear central message it has conveyed to most readers,” he claims, “but around this center there has lain a penumbra of vagueness and half-veiled allusion.” The difficulty, Du Bois suggests, comes from Souls’s attempt to reconstruct affect into language: “to translate the finer feelings of men into words.” Scholars frequently identify these fragments of affect and vagueness as part of Du Bois’s poetic style.

I am inviting original essays on the literary works written by American writers, who have lived in Paris from the 1800s to the present, for a book tentatively titled American Writers in Paris: Then and Now.
Although American expatriate literature in Paris is typified by the Lost Generation or the Jazz Age of the 1920s, Americans show a distinct presence in Paris from Jefferson to the Jazz Age and from the Jazz Age to the present. Lifting social repressions, liberating artistic expressions, alleviating psychological ailments, inspiring artistic creations, enriching personal experiences, or enhancing economic standards at different times of history, Paris has turned out to be an alternative abode to live and write for American writers.

This panel seeks to create a panel in the CEA conference by bringing instructors together to examine interesting approaches that can be taken to teach the world literature survey for college students. Instructors may talk about their experiences of teaching the world lit survey: what approaches/topics did you choose to organize and structure the world lit survey syllabus? What were some of the texts that worked well with students? What were some of the interesting assignments you gave to your students? What class activities/projects did you assign?

When we talk about the eighteenth-century and adaptation, we frequently talk about adaptations of eighteenth-century literature and art, often into film. Yet adaptation was a common practice during the eighteenth century as well.

I have 12 great essays for a volume called Mythological Equines in Film (Series: Equine Creations: Imagining Horses in Literature and Film), which is meant to be paired with Mythological Equines in Children’s Literature (Series: Equine Creations: Imagining Horses in Literature and Film), which is full with 21 essays.
In order to keep them approximately the same size, I am looking for 2-3 more essays to round out the film collection. Harry Potter and Narnia are well covered, but other topics are open.
The abstract deadline is Sept. 30, 2021. The deadline for essays will be February 1, 2022.

Currently consisting of seven (eight if one counts The Curse of La Llorona) interconnected films with additional entries in the pipeline, The Conjuring universe (2013-present) serves as one of the touchstone horror franchises of the modern era. Despite rising to industry prominence as one of the most profitable horror franchises of all time and one of the few properties to effectively execute a shared universe story world, The Conjuring universe has only been the subject of a few studies where it is often assessed alongside analogous, but thematically different, films such as Paranormal Activity (2009) and Insidious (2011).

Ever since the publication of Foucault’s multi-volume work The History of Sexuality, scholarship, whether theoretically, historically, or literarily minded, has reckoned with the call to develop less anachronistic methodologies to analyze premodern expressions of desire. While scholars such as David Halperin and Susan Lanser have risen to the challenge of Foucault’s text and expanded his analysis to address feminine and queer desires, both generally and within their specific periods of study, these theoretical and methodological strides in the history of sexuality have penetrated fields at various rates. This seminar seeks to help remedy this disciplinary issue, particularly within the literature of medieval studies and classics.
