Video games are more popular than ever, and gaming is an increasingly common hobby. However, gaming raises a number of complex ethical issues. Perhaps the most familiar is the question of whether violent video games are morally appropriate or not. But beyond questions about the morality of gaming and what is appropriate content we might wonder what the overall value of gaming is. Gamers are quite passionate about their hobby, and with concerns about gaming-disorder on the rise, it is reasonable to ask what redeeming value video games have. What role, if any, can video games have in the good life?

Graduate Journal aspeers Calls for Papers on "American Apocalypses" by Oct 16, 2022

aspeers: emerging voices in american studies
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 16, 2022

In his 2017 inauguration speech, Donald Trump painted a picture of “American carnage” sweeping the nation. Echoing the rhetoric used throughout his campaign, he described his vision of the present state of America in apocalyptic terms: from “rusted out factories, scattered like tombstones across the landscape” to “the crime, and the gangs, and the drugs that have stolen too many lives.” For Trump and his supporters, this apocalypse was the America he was inheriting—yet for many other Americans, such tropes were instead used to characterize the nation that Trump led from 2017 to 2021. Accordingly, in his 2020 presidential campaign, Joe Biden evoked similar language when he framed the presidential election as a “battle for the soul of this nation.”

Gothic Adaptation: Intermedial and Intercultural Shape-Shifting

Sunday, July 31, 2022

The Gothic is a wide-ranging mode that comprises multiple genres, including but not limited to literature, drama, film, television, art, music, games, comics, and graphic novels. It is also a shape-shifting mode. Like vampires or werewolves, expressions of the Gothic frequently and uncannily change form, thereby calling into question the stability and desirability of fixed generic, cultural, and mediatic boundaries. Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1897), the most often adapted Gothic text, first took the shape of both a novel and a play before transforming into innumerable plays, operas, ballets, graphic novels, TV shows, films, comics, and games.

For SAMLA 94 (Friday, November 11 to Sunday, November 13, 2022; Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront | Jacksonville, FL). (12-15min papers)

Radical changes have been felt nowhere as intensely as in Berlin throughout the long twentieth century: shifting from Weimar liberties to Nazi oppression, and from Cold War fragmentation to an unsteady reunification in 1990 and after, Berlin has often transformed into a space in flux focalizing emergence. Many texts like to channel Berlin's role as a precarious playground of transgressive unsettlement.

EXTENDED Panel for SAMLA 94: The Avant-Garde and Social Change

Tuesday, July 5, 2022 - 10:15am
SAMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, July 25, 2022

The term avant-garde usually applies to works of art, literature and music characterized by their radical experimentation and opposition to institutionalized culture. Leading unconventional and non-conformist lives, the avant-gardists antagonized the bourgeoise by attacking their social values, mediocrity and material interests. Instead, these iconoclastic artists engaged in acts of dissidence promoted in soirées, manifestos, journals and exhibits that interfered with public life. For instance, Marinetti paraded with the Suffragettes smashing windows through the streets of London, an act that echoes his fervor to destroy museums and academies, as described in the 1909 Futurist Manifesto.
