The Superhero
The Superhero Project: 2nd Global Meeting

Call for Presentations 2016

Friday 9th September – Sunday 11th September 2016
Mansfield College, Oxford, United Kingdom

"With great power, comes great irresponsibility…" – Deadpool

In the twenty-first century, the Superhero now holds an unparalleled position within pop culture. Having vastly expanded beyond its birth medium of comic books to what is a fierce and pervasive presence in multiple media, this domination is no more apparent than the realms of mainstream cinema, where blockbuster superhero films routinely break box-office records and more than thirty further films are set to be released by 2020.

Autofiction in English

Thursday, March 10, 2016 - 4:22am
Hywel Dix, Bournemouth University, UK

Since the term was coined by Serge Doubrovsky in 1971, autofiction has become established as a recognisable genre within the French literary pantheon. Over the same period, it has attracted increasing critical and theoretical scrutiny so that it has developed into a dynamic field of scholarly research in France. Indeed, the increase and variety of autofiction scholarship has had the effect of placing the characteristics of the genre itself in question.

Michel Foucault: Discourse Theory and the Archive
(Göttingen University, 16 July 2016)

This year marks not only Michel Foucault's 90th birthday, but also the 50th anniversary of the publication of his seminal book Let Mots et les Choses, which made Foucault a prominent intellectual figure throughout Europe. We would like to commemorate this double anniversary with a one-day symposium organised by the Department of British Literature and Culture at Göttingen University in cooperation with the Göttingen Center for Genderstudies and the Center for Theory of Culture and Society.

NOSTALGIA - Deadline 20th April 2016

updated: 
Wednesday, March 9, 2016 - 11:06am
Dandelion Journal, Birkbeck College

The Dandelion editors seek submissions on the theme of NOSTALGIA for their forthcoming issue.

Nostalgia is a ubiquitous presence in contemporary culture. Images and fantasies of the past permeate cultural and political discourses: from the mediated recycling of retro culture and popular history, to nostalgia as a method of political renewal (for example, Donald Trump's campaign slogan 'Make America Great Again!' and Ken Loach's The Spirit of '45).

Since his seminal writing on The Sandman (1989-present) and long since before and after on works such as Batman, Miracleman, The Books of Magic, The Endless, Stardust, The Graveyard Book, etc. from adult graphic novels (Neverwhere) to voluminous amounts of children's graphic novels and illustrated texts (Coraline, Chu's Day, Fortunately, the Milk, Hansel and Gretel etc.), Neil Gaiman has established himself as one of the most prominent, if not prolific, writers in the medium of sequential art in the late twentieth and twenty-first century.

Laura Ingalls Wilder: Critical Perspectives

Since 1932, when Laura Ingalls Wilder published her first novel, Little House in the Big Woods, Americans have been fascinated by Wilder's representation of the American frontier and pioneer life. That fascination has been renewed with the 2014 publication of Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiography. Edited by Pamela Smith Hill and published by the South Dakota Historical Society, Pioneer Girl offers readers a view into Wilder's life and her writing process. Hill's introduction and extensive annotations, intended at least in part for an academic audience, allow readers to see Wilder, her life, and her career in context.

THE PATIENT
Examining Realities

5th Global Conference: The Health Project

Call for Presentations 2016

Monday 5th September – Wednesday 7th September 2016
Mansfield College, Oxford, United Kingdom

For the patient's position in the therapeutic relationship to be reconfigured, perhaps the healthcare professional's position needs to be likewise explored and reconsidered. For patienthood to be compatible with personhood, professionalism too may need to be compatible with personhood.

Transgressive Filmmakers and Their Films

updated: 
Tuesday, March 8, 2016 - 2:40pm
Film & History: An Interdisciplinary Journal

This is a CFP for Film & History Conference. 26-30 October 2016
The Hilton Milwaukee; Milwaukee, WI, USA

DEADLINE for abstracts: June 1, 2016

Cinematic transgression is about directors challenging or overcoming the status quo in their films, most often through shock and shlock to wake slumbering viewers with (sometimes hidden) social commentary. While each generation has spawned new notions or means of transgression in film, some have remained constant: sex, violence, gore, sacrilege, drugs, race, gender performance, etc. These films frequently are made by a director who is also an embodiment of transgression, whether or not they work within the mainstream system.

(Update) Call for Abstracts for Critical Insights: Civil Rights

updated: 
Tuesday, March 8, 2016 - 12:08pm
Christopher Allen Varlack (University of Maryland, Baltimore County)

From its flawed notion of "separate but equal" to the rampant violence against black bodies throughout the twentieth century, the United States faced a clear racial divide perpetuated by its Jim Crow culture and the disenfranchisement of blacks. In response, on August 28, 1963, noted American civil rights activist, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., delivered his iconic "I Have a Dream" speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, urging radical social and political change in a society marred by a rich history of segregation and discrimination. Since then, we have recognized this speech as a symbol of the enduring struggle for equal civil rights and the pursuit of the core values upon which the United States was based.

[UPDATE] Postcolonial Shakespeares - CFP for Postcolonial Interventions Vol I, Issue 2 -

updated: 
Tuesday, March 8, 2016 - 11:07am
Postcolonial Interventions: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Postcolonial Studies ISSN 2455 6564

2016 marks the quartercentenary of Shakespeare's death and the upcoming issue of Postcolonial Interventions will focus on the continued relevance of multiple Shakespeares in the culture-scape of the postcolonial world. Not only were Shakespearean plays shaped in many ways by colonial discourses, especially discourses of racial difference, but Shakespearean plays also initially functioned as those "signs taken for wonders" through which the colonial administrators sought to consolidate imperial hegemony, as evident from such critical works as Post-Colonial Shakespeares (1999).

Problems We Can Name: Subverting Domesticity Past and Present
A Reader

"I make these lists [of books] but when on earth will I ever get a chance to read these? Since having kids, instead of reading I do something with them or for them or clean up. I always have this sense of domestic responsibility that makes reading feel self-indulgent but that's ridiculous,"- Jennifer Egan
