Working Title--Adolescent Medievalism: The Middle Ages Packaged for Children and Young Adults

As stated in our initial CFP, we are interested in abstracts on how the Middle Ages has been and is presented to young people. This focus includes not only literature written specifically for older children and adolescents but also historical fiction, textbooks, and other texts that address the Middle Ages or use medieval motifs. We have many fine abstracts but have noticed specific gaps that need filling.

This panel seeks papers examining the topic of transpacific
colonialisms/postcolonialisms. Questions and concerns can include but are
not limited to: How do practices or notions of colonialism or
postcolonialism travel across the Pacific? How do Asian and Asian
American travelers, writers, journalists, expatriates, laborers,
filmmakers, etc., represent themselves within contexts of
colonialism/postcolonialism, perhaps even redefining the relations that
constitute those very terms? How are representations of seemingly
localized colonial or postcolonial contexts affected by transpacific
social, political, and historical relations?

Call for Papers:

Word & Image

Annual Conference of the Association for the Study of New English
Literatures

University of Koblenz-Landau, Campus Koblenz, Germany, May 24-27, 2006

The simultaneous use of verbal and visual forms of representation
constitutes a major feature of anglophone literatures and cultures, but
the similarities and differences between words and images and the
parameters of their coexistence have hardly been theorised and
critically explored in depth. Post/colonial critiques often stress that
the Other transcends verbal representation, without, however, discussing
the nature of the visual representation of the Other or its relationship
to its verbal context.
