Speculative Fiction (SF) creators regularly imagine worlds in precipitous decline where the privileged few live in a safe, prosperous, hazard-free enclave from which surplus subaltern populations are excluded. What do these stories of safety for the few while the “surplus” rot outside or join a captive servant class status tell us about our own concepts of borders, citizenship, and expendability? Presenters are invited to engage with one or more texts using cultural studies, postcolonial theory, or other relevant analytic tool to analyze how gated communities function in the SF canon or the real world.

ICMS 2024: Crafting the Afterlife: Depictions of Heaven, Hell, and Unearthly Spaces in Medieval Literature

Depictions of the afterlife abound in medieval texts of every genre and form. From descriptions of heaven, hell, and purgatory to explorations of reincarnation and mythical spaces like Hades and the Elysian fields, medieval thinkers utilized art, music, literature, and theology to imagine different forms of life after death. In turn, such texts shaped what the afterlife looked like, sounded like, and felt like. With every work of writing and art, the afterlives depicted in classical literature and scripture took on slightly or drastically different forms. This session seeks to delve into the medieval construction of the afterlife, examining how life after death was depicted, interpreted, and experienced in medieval culture, both within and beyond Europe.

NeMLA 2023 Panel: Animals of the Victorian Age: Queer Ecology and the Emphasis on Animal Kinship

In Animal Rights: Considered in Relation to Social Process (1892), Henry Salt argues that “Oppression and cruelty are invariably founded on a lack of imaginative sympathy,” which purports the notion of the “tyrant or tormentor” from ever having a “true sense of kinship with the victim” (16). In a similar way, Donna Haraway states in When Species Meet (2007), that “we are a knot of species coshaping [sic] one another in layers of reciprocating complexity all the way down” (42). Taking cues from Salt and Haraway, our panel will take up key features of human and animal relations and their intersection with the queerness of imaginative sympathy.

Abstract

In this thematic issue, we explore the place and role of animals in media, their representation and influence in the context of new media, advertising, social networks, films, series, and other forms of media content. Animals hold a significant position in popular culture and have become an integral part of our interaction with the media environment. We invite authors to explore various aspects of the presence of animals in new media and examine the ethical and social questions associated with their use and representation.

In this thematic issue, we explore the role of neural networks and technologies in media and social life. Considering the rapid development of information technology and artificial intelligence, our society is undergoing fundamental changes in the ways of interaction and communication. We invite authors to consider the deep and all-encompassing influence of neural networks on the formation and perception of media, their role in social interaction, and the changes that neural networks and technology bring to our daily lives.

There has been a veritable outpouring of both popular and academic writing on folk horror in the wake of folk horror’s resurgence in the post-2009 period. The last three years, for instance, has seen an excellent and comprehensive documentary film, Kier-La Janisse’s Woodlands Dark and Days Bewitched: A History of Folk Horror (2021); a special issue of the journal Revenant: Critical and Cultural Studies of the Supernatural (2020) dedicated to folk horror (with a special issue of Horror Studies in the works); and four collections of scholarly essays either just published or forthcoming in 2023 (see Bacon; Bayman and Donnelly; Edgar and Johnson; and Keetley and Heholt).

Physical and mental disability traditionally garners impressions of helplessness, asexuality, and invisibility that certainly extend to popular media. However, these attitudes have been challenged in recent years with the demand for more inclusive representations through diverse lenses. This panel aims to reexamine the representation of disability in film, TV and other media beyond education to consider the theoretical , cultural, aesthetic and historical implications that disability conveys as a site for reconsidering identity and body politics, often through transgression.

What does it mean to make a book? Fourteenth-century France and beyond

updated: 
Tuesday, July 25, 2023 - 12:18am
International Congress for Medieval Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 15, 2023

In the fourteenth century, book-making became a well-established trade in France. With extensive networks of professionals and readers, streamlined production, and consolidated norms, the French book acquired distinctiveness. We invite papers that explore how the distinctively bookish and reflexive character of French literature of the period may be linked to the practices of book-making. Papers could ask what, exactly, book-making meant, how it was represented (in literature, visual culture, and beyond), and what methods we might best employ to discuss book media holistically. Papers that compare book-making from elsewhere to the French context are encouraged.
