Adaptation Studies is a growing field of research that addresses a significant subset of the intersection of film and literature, in which, as Maureen Quinn puts it, literature and film are studied as "two interdependent partial texts that become a new whole." This session invites papers that explore the many facets of adaptation studies, including literature adapted to film, film to video games, and film to textual works. Papers that engage some aspect of the conference theme of "Archives, Properties, Libraries" are especially welcome.

To submit a paper proposal for this session, or one of the many other approved PAMLA sessions, please go to: http://www.pamla.org/2016/topic-areas

SAMLA 88 | November 4-6, 2016 | Jacksonville, FL

As SAMLA heads to Jacksonville, Florida, for its 2016 conference, one recalls Keith Cartwright’s characterization of the state as a “longtime frontier[] of creolizing contact” (8): “Whether in Old South Jacksonville or St. Augustine, or south of that South in Miami’s creolizing space, Florida repeats itself as an ‘un-American’ frontier of the nation, a multi-ethnic borderland, a point of contested migration and immigration, a location of repeating racialized violence, and a divinatory contact space” (188).

We are inviting essays for a proposed collection tentatively titled The Critic as Amateur, with strong interest from Oxford UP. The collection will focus on literary criticism as an activity suspended (productively) between expertise and amateurism.  It will explore the idea of the critic of literature as an amateur rather than an expert, or conversely, it will consider the role of expertise in literary criticism. Individual contributions might touch on figures who have written on literature without credentials/certification, academic or otherwise, or institutional affiliations. They might also address academics who have successfully assumed "amateur" roles while writing or speaking in the public domain.

"Pushing Back: Feminist Readings as Resistance"

Parlour: A Journal of Literary Criticism and Analysis
contact email: 
deadline: 
Monday, August 1, 2016

The upcoming issue of Parlour will concentrate on women as producers and consumers of texts with an emphasis on counter-intuitive feminist interpretations. We invite submissions that explore a wide range of approaches to the issue's theme and its attendant connotations of defiance, opposition, direct action, and rebellion.

We seek in particular articles that engage with queer feminism, antisocial feminism, Halberstam's notions of shadow feminism and the wild, and deeply intersectional feminism in order to read literary texts. Similarly, we encourage submissions that provide bold takes on works, authors, or characters that appear to be inimical to feminist inquiry—the more oblique the angle, the more surprising the application, the better.
