Fairy Tales and Adaptation

 

This panel is part of the 52nd annual convention of the NeMLA, held March 11-14, 2021. Presenters will be able to give their papers either virtually, or in person in Philadelphia.

The panel proposes a discussion of the transformations fairy tales undergo when being adapted into new media (for example, Hansel and Gretel as an opera), new cultures (Hans Christian Andersen’s Little Mermaid as Hayao Miyazaki’s Ponyo) and new historical or theoretical contexts (Catherine Breillat’s Sleeping Beauty).

We are a lively academic collective interested in investigating the articulation of the numerous and heterogeneous representations which have been constructing images of the US. Our research delves into how the US—their history, society, and diverse cultures—have been represented in popular media and cultural creations. Our blog aims at providing a collaborative, engaging, and fair environment for any interested scholar, promoting the sharing of knowledge, experience, and ideas across disciplines and thematic fields. We’re also working to foster a stimulating space for early career researchers and postgraduate students in North American studies, thus we’ll warmly welcome their proposals.

Tuesday, December 1, 2020

Popular culture scholars often refer to a 40-year cycle of nostalgia, and so it is not surprising that there has been a recent wave of movies and television shows set in the 1980s.  The Netflix series Stranger Things, the film IT: Chapter One, the interactive film Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, and the ninth season of American Horror Story, titled “1984,” all provide prominent examples of recent texts that have used the semantic texture of the 1980s as a dramatic setting.  The fact that these texts all use the ’80s as a context for horror stories suggests the sense that an undercurrent of demonic violence undergirds the glittering fads, suburban affluence, and Reaganite yuppieism associated with the 1980s, even as these te

In the late 70s, the protraction of the Cold War’s tensions and the shift from Fordism towards neoliberal economics reshaped the political and public sphere within the Western block. The traditional spaces of politics lost their pivotal role, resulting in what was perceived as a general crisis of militant politics. In a 2011 interview with Justice spatiale | Spatial Justice, rereading Henri Lefebvre, David Harvey posited that this perception stemmed from the inability of the Left to include the urban dimension in its analytical framework.

Body Politics: Rethinking Gender and Masculinity

updated: 
Friday, September 11, 2020 - 1:39pm
Edited Volume on Masculinity Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

Concept Note: The research on men and masculinities traces back to the women’s and gay liberation movements that challenged existing understandings of gender and power. Though the initial formulations of Masculinity Studies had started much early around the 1970s, it was not until the empirical research around 1980s-1990s that it began to develop as a newly formed discipline. As a logical extension of Feminism, Masculinity Studies looks into sex and/or gender as a discursive social construct and tries to understand them through theoretical hermeneutics.

Sunday, January 31, 2021

 As a preamble to this call for abstracts, we want to specify that we are using the terms “transgender” and “trans identities” as umbrella terms for people whose gender identity and/or gender expression differs from what is typically associated with the sex they were assigned at birth. Our use of “transgender” or “trans identities” thus encompasses a variety of experiences within and outside the gender binary, and a range of expressions, as trans individuals pursue many different options (medical changes, clothing, make-up, etc.) to bring their appearances into alignment with their gender identity, or may choose not to.

In this session, we will especially focus on how the British classic literature of the 19th and early 20th centuries have been adapted concerning Thatcherism, the heritage industry, colonialism, Britishness (Englishness). The so-called "Heritage Fever," which hit British society in the 1980s, was largely supported by national-led policy. In the 1980s, for example, cultural heritage preservation movements spread nationwide; museums and heritage centers around the country were created. A great deal of British interest in the so-called “Old England,” such as visiting historic sites, became an honor factor.

NeMLA 2021
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

The battle against COVID-19 provides the latest example of war used as a metaphor. That is, it exemplifies the persistent, if not seemingly obligatory way that we deploy war as a metaphor against “enemies” such as “crime” and “drugs.” This ubiquitous practice stages metaphorical battlefields and soldiers, including hospitals and healthcare professionals, grocery stores and delivery workers. We might consider how deploying the metaphor of “war” against coronavirus reaps various costs and benefits to its figuration as such. On one hand, local to global populations are recruited to band together against disease. Personal sacrifice and national resources receive renewed attention.
