Literature of Crisis and Apocalypse PAMLA Panel

updated: 
Thursday, July 9, 2020 - 7:16am
Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, July 15, 2020

Apocalyptic literature and its study have typically centered around notions of Christian eschatology, i.e. the judgement presented in the Book of Revelations. However, the aftermath of the second world war helped reshape our notions of this genre. Apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic fiction of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries has begun to examine the relations between humans and the Earth during the Anthropocene. Images of global thermonuclear war, fears of communism, and a burgeoning climate change (with its subsequent and constituent crises) have eclipsed the teleological notions of divine creation and its eventual, inexorable movement towards eschatology.

CFP for NeMLA 2021 | The Dread of Difference(s): Horror, Gender, and Cinematic Defiance (Seminar)

updated: 
Thursday, July 9, 2020 - 7:10am
Northeast Modern Languages Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

Since Carol J. Clover’s seminal work Men, Women, and Chainsaws (1992), feminist readings of horror movies have gained an enthusiastic theoretical momentum. In employing various frameworks and lenses and by complicating our spectatorial position, this rich corpus of literature has perhaps contributed to a resignification of the genre and its tropes. However, amid the emergence of luminous movies that defy and challenge horror’s misogynistic and racialized foundations, several questions arise: Is contemporary horror cinema really abjuring its heteronormative, original structure? Does mainstream horror still convey trite reactionary messages with renewed vigor?

The Odyssey of Communism. Visual Narratives, Memory and Culture

updated: 
Thursday, July 9, 2020 - 7:07am
Dunarea de Jos University of Galati
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

Goal: With obvious propagandistic aims, the feature films and documentaries produced in the Eastern Bloc would ‘rewrite’ the history in the making, providing their home audiences with the image of a system that should have been perceived as victorious against the evils of the corrupt, capitalist West, and as a blessing for the ones fortunate enough to be under the protection of the Party.

Equally worth commenting on are the few cultural products of the age that escaped censorship in their attempt to fight the regime, either by subtle insertion of subversive elements in the communist visual propaganda or by ‘emigration’ to a free world that was more than willing to find out what was going on behind the Iron Curtain.

Opening the Vault: Media Industry Studies and its Archives

updated: 
Thursday, July 9, 2020 - 7:06am
Spectator / University of Southern California
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 27, 2020

Deadline for Submission: November 27, 2020

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, numerous scholars have been unable to physically access archival records, locked away for an indefinite period of time. In the present, various media industries—studios, streaming services, talent agencies, and more —have continued to announce deals, make public statements, and present a digital front that veils the story underneath. With continued conglomeration and corporate security practices winnowing access to materials, even smaller stakes questions—even the amount of eyes on any particular work on digital platforms—are becoming increasingly impossible to uncover without records.

Souhern Gothic Subversion

This interdisciplinary panel invites submissions for papers that examine the subversive aspects of the Southern Gothic genre in literature, film, television, or music. Creative new readings of traditional Southern Gothic texts from O'Connor, Faulkner, Williams, etc. are welcome.

Please submit a 250-word abstract, brief biographical statement (including academic affiliation and contact information), and A/V requirements to Mary McCampbell at mmccampbell@leeuniversity.edu by July 29, 2020.

Periodicals and Silent Cinema (Special Edition of the Journal of Modern Periodical Studies)

updated: 
Thursday, July 9, 2020 - 7:03am

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 24, 2020

Submissions are solicited for a special edition of the Journal of Modern Periodical Studies on the relationship between periodicals and silent cinema. Work is encouraged which treats the topic in its global, as well as Anglophone, context. 

The rise of silent cinema in the early twentieth century changed the business of writing and publishing forever. Editors, journalists, essayists and authors found themselves catering for readers whose cultural expectations had been transformed by their interactions with cinema. Debates raged over which periodical form would first be rendered obsolete: the daily newspaper? The illustrated magazine? The serialised novel? The weekly comic? The compendium of short fiction?

Dunarea de Jos University, Faculty of Letters
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

CULTURAL INTERTEXTS started in 2014, as a result of a yes, we can kind of attitude. The name of the journal was meant to reflect the multi-layered textuality of the world embedded in cultures and embedding cultures in its turn. The first two issues came out at Casa Cărții de Știință Press in a single volume (1-2/ 2014) of 373 pages, with 23 papers on Literature and Cultural Studies, and 11 dealing with Linguistics and Translation Studies. They had all been presented during the 2014 edition of the annual Doctoral Conference of “Dunarea de Jos” University of Galati, Romania. Six years have passed, and seven more issues have been added to the collection.

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, February 28, 2021

Since 2017, the #metoo movement has been successful for the conviction of Harvey Weinstein, who was at the center of the landmark trial. The same cannot be said in the case of India, which is still coming to terms with the issue of gender-based violence. Our panel will examine the representations of women who have been forgotten or have been rendered invisible in the national and international media discourse. Our panel will examine such representations through the study of South Asian filmic and theatre representations of Dalit (lower-caste), Northeast Indian, and women who were foundational figures in the defining the newly minted nation—India and Pakistan.
