Historians and archaeologists, heritage scholars and professionals routinely focus  on  the digital transduction and rendering of text and artefacts when discussing the digitization of the heritage sector. Repositories, databases, 3D artifacts, immersive environments, interactive maps, and computer games are  but some of the ways in which the past is currently reproduced and conveyed. But the implications of this digital turn for those outside the academy have yet to be fully appreciated and analyzed.  This volume aims to further this conversation.

Utopic Identity and Liminality in African American Literature

This panel seeks presentations about the proclivity of African American racial space. That is, this panel is interested in when and where conceptions of spatial race formalities are conducted. We can think of “space” as time, place, and movement—the constant liminal changing of identities. This panel invites abstracts, of no more than 250 words, for presentations on African American literature at the Midwest Modern Language Association conference. Some topics might include:

In Ellen Forney’s autobiographical comic Marbles: Mania, Depression, Michelangelo and Me (2012), the author narrates her journey following her bipolar disorder diagnosis, a journey that sets off an exploration into how her art is connected to that of the “crazy artists” of the past. Just like Vincent van Gogh and Sylvia Plath, whose work has been connected to their mental health status, Forney explores how her condition possibly influenced her art.

"A need to tell and hear stories is essential to the species Homo sapiens – second in necessity apparently after nourishment and before love and shelter. Millions survive without love or home, almost none in silence; the opposite of silence leads quickly to narrative, and the sound of story is the dominant sound of our lives, from the small accounts of our day’s events to the vast incommunicable constructs of psychopaths."

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, November 30, 2021

Dear Colleagues,

Much of the Western world has a rising problem with white nationalists. These white supremacists often co-opt fields like Classics, medievalism, and Norse mythology to support their racist ideologies—twisting these disciplines and repressing or ignoring evidence for the multicultural and multiracial realities of the ancient and medieval world. In terms of Classics, these distortions and appropriations have been documented by an emerging generation of scholars like Donna Zuckerberg, Dan-el Padilla Peralta, Curtis Dozier, Sarah Bond, and others. Ancient myth, literature, and symbols continue to pervade modern culture.

The English theatre culture from the early Restoration to the early 18th century witnessed a marked shift towards increased commercialization and popularization of theatre. Gone were the post-1660 close association with the court, royalist productions, and prominently elite (well-off and upper-class) audiences. Instead, the experimentation with new genres, opening of new theatres, and a growing differentiation of the theatre programme into mainpieces, entr’acte entertainments and afterpieces revolutionized the established cultural hierarchies of the period.

Saturday, May 1, 2021

Examining time and space as anything but concrete and singular, Elizabeth Grosz states that they “are in some sense correlated with representations of the subject” (99). Such a conception associates spatio-temporal location with subjectivity, and to some extent, embodiment and corporeality. Space becomes about more than physical conceptualizations—such as land, location, or locality, or more specifically Earth, land, nation, city, or home—and comes to include broader, more metaphorical, notions such as the space within body and mind, as well as narrative space.
