Margaret Atwood's Settings and Spaces (PAMLA 11/13-11/15/22 Los Angeles)

Margaret Atwood Society
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 15, 2022

Margaret Atwood’s works are replete with significant spaces: the forest in which Lucy disappears in “Death by Landscape,” Iris’s mansion in the fictional Port Ticonderoga of The Blind Assassin, Offred’s room, haunted by the Offreds who came before her, in The Handmaid’s Tale, Aunt Lydia’s hiding place in Ardua Hall in The Testaments, the rooftop gardens of the MaddAddam trilogy, Kinnear’s basement in Alias Grace, and more. We’re in a Renaissance of Atwood scholarship, prompted in part by contemporary parallels to the events in her dystopias and to the Hulu and Netflix adaptations of The Handmaid’s Tale and Alias Grace, respectively.

Holly Holladay / Missouri State University
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 31, 2022

We are seeking proposals for an edited collection tentatively titled Television Comedy & Cultural Crisis. Chapters should focus on a specific television series, and address how that series engages with the discourse of a particular cultural crisis through comedy. The function of comedy should be foregrounded, as the collection will be held together through the central question of how humor acts as space through which we can resist normative ways of thinking about these cultural crises. 

Contributors might consider humorous depictions of, but are not limited to:

  • The afterlife/faith

  • Environmentalism/climate crisis

Both “culture” and “people” are largely undefined and inherently diverse forms, susceptible to malleability and appropriation to suit different agendas. Considering popular culture as a field of struggle leads us to a distinction between popular forms of control as well as participation. Popular culture therefore remains tied to questions of representation, enactment, regulation and control. Reading the form requires the deployment of modes such as symbols and codes (semiotics), apparatus of production (political economy approach), audience and consumer response as well as through studies of the social life of cultural forms and their political frames.

Candyman: The Whole Damn Swarm

deadline for submissions:

30 years ago, Polygram Filmed Entertainment released Candyman, a film loosely adapted from Clive Barker’s short story “The Forbidden”. Unlike Barker’s original text, this Candyman was set in Chicago, specifically the urban ghetto Cabrini Green, and seemed to focus on the tragedy of a Black artist who vengefully returns as a violent ghost after his brutal lynching. The film and its ideologies were complicated. Innovative in its starting point – a story of profound Black suffering which called attention to the racial injustice underpinning US society – audiences were also given a tale which reiterated ideas of Black monstrosity and illogical interracial violence.

Rewriting the Abortion Narrative: The Power of Popular Culture

With the Supreme Court poised to radically change or even overturn Roe v. Wade after hearing the Mississippi Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case, critical attention is being turned toward the changing ways popular culture depicts abortion. Popular culture is uniquely positioned to offer these narratives, particularly given the research that suggests that the way abortion is depicted in popular culture impacts cultural perceptions of abortion and may even, as Steph Herold has noted, “have very real ‘policy implications,’ particularly in such a politically charged climate.”
