NeMLA 2025 Roundtable: To (R)evolve or Not to (R)evolve?: Adaptation, Performance, and Pedagogy of Shakespeare Today

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2024

Why Shakespeare? Why now? Why here? These important questions come up time and again in academic and performance discussions of the Bard as we grapple with the inherent tensions of studying and producing Shakespeare today. Even the encyclopedia Britannica participates in the ongoing dialogue with an entry—albeit a short one—defending “why is Shakespeare still important today?” In the midst of an ongoing (r)evolution, this roundtable seeks to address the pressing why-now-here questions as they apply to considerations of Shakespeare in all forms with a focus on adaptation, performance, and pedagogy.

​In our postmodern world there are a lot of questions that should be re-considered and re-defined. What does it mean to fight against colonialism and racism in the world of migration crisis and xenophobic attitudes towards minorities? What does it mean to be a postcommunist country in the face of the common nostalgia for order and rules? How is it possible to have a national identity being aware of the relative character of every national feature?

Intersectionality in Literature, Linguistics and Translation

updated: 
Wednesday, July 3, 2024 - 11:06am
Ain Shams University
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, December 1, 2024

In an age marked with conflict and strife, humanity is still searching for solutions to oppression and marginalization. In order to better understand the factors leading to these problems, Kimberlé Crenshaw first introduced the term “intersectionality” in 1989 to explain how a person’s intersecting identities such as gender, race, ethnicity, sexuality, age, ability, nationality and religion affect their access to opportunities and privileges. In literary and linguistic studies, intersectionality is used as a framework of analysis that helps scholars examine how these factors fuel various issues, ranging from health inequity to climate change and how they are expressed, negotiated and at times resolved through texts.

Call for Abstracts: Git Gud’ and Other Stories: The Influence of Open Culture on Game Experiences

updated: 
Wednesday, July 3, 2024 - 10:59am
MultiPlay Network UK
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, August 31, 2024

This volume will explore the outsized influence of community discourses on how games are experienced. Cultures and discourses surrounding games significantly impact player experiences. Salen and Zimmerman (2004) describe open cultural contexts where "the exchange of meaning between a game and its surrounding cultural context can change and transform both the game and its environment”. Consalvo (2007) discusses how videogame paratexts, including guides and wikis, serve crucial functions in understanding approaches to gameplay. Similarly, Mukherjee (2015) views games as multifaceted “assemblages” that are deeply informed by surrounding cultures and communities.

Ethics of Attraction: Serial killers on the screen and why we’re sexually attracted to them

University of Worcester
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, October 31, 2024

When Zac Efron was cast as Ted Bundy in Netflix’s 2019 production, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, this decision received a mixed reception. Some argued that Efron was too much of a ‘queasily parodic hottie’ for the role (Bradshaw 2019). Meanwhile, there was a counter argument to state that Efron’s starring role was in fact clever mimicry of Bundy’s alleged sex appeal and charisma, two defining qualities that enabled him to become such a prolific violent offender. Significantly though, Efron is far from the only conventionally attractive and high-profile actor to be cast in the role of a violent criminal.
