Fabricating the Body

This panel welcomes a wide range of proposals for scholarly presentations that seek to apply this year’s MMLA conference theme—“Duality, Doubles and Doppelgängers”—to literary, artistic or cultural portrayals of “the body”.

Topics may include, but are by no means limited to:

  • the clothed, veiled, or hidden body

  • the exposed or objectified body

  • the fetishized body

updated: 
Wednesday, April 10, 2019 - 11:28am
Edizioni Sinestesie (Italy)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, August 1, 2019

This section of the academic journal “Sinestesieonline” is open to contributions about theatre and performing arts in all historical ages, forms and variations, in English, Italian and foreign languages. We use double blind peer review.

“Il Parlaggio” is the name created by Gabriele d’Annunzio for the amphitheatre in Vittoriale – a place of empathy, a cradle of emotions, a crossroads of cultures, a connection between antiquity and contemporaneity, an emblem of the “neverending show”.

Call for Submissions: Interdisciplinary responses to "Rules"

ON Journal is a Chicago-based interdisciplinary print journal edited by Gabrielle Welsh and published by Shelf Shelf — https://shelfshelf.store/on-being-read/index.html

“I don’t follow the fucking rules,” you hear an earlier version of yourself saying, yet rules—both spoken and unspoken—permeate all facets of our lives, dictating our faculties. How are they broken? If only momentarily?

Double the Teaching: the Work of Community College Faculty

updated: 
Tuesday, April 9, 2019 - 9:53am
MMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 15, 2019

We readily describe the job of university professors as having three components: research, teaching, and service. These same three components manifest themselves in the work of community college faculty. Nevertheless, full-time community college faculty typically have at least double the teaching load of their peers at the university. This much greater emphasis on teaching together with much diminished requirements (and support) for research means the work of a full-time community college instructor has a distinct balance of efforts and outcomes.

Evil Women: Women and Evil, 2nd Global Conference

updated: 
Wednesday, April 10, 2019 - 11:05am
Progressive Connexions
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 31, 2019

The second meeting of the global inclusive interdisciplinary Evil Women: Women and Evil project will explore and examine all aspects of the conjunctions between women, the feminine and evil with a view to forming a selective publication to engender further collaboration, research and discussion.  On the one hand we will scrutinise what happens when women themselves behave in ways that are considered evil – when they rob, murder, manipulate, groom, abuse, beguile, embezzle. Women are not expected to behave in aberrant or illegal ways and we will consider the structural and systemic reasons for the heightened interest, repulsion, condemnation – and even hatred – that feminine transgression generates.

MMLA: Re-reading Remakes, Reboots, and Readaptations

updated: 
Tuesday, April 9, 2019 - 9:52am
Marxist Literary Group
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, April 20, 2019

This permanent section of the Midwestern Modern Languages Association organized by the Marxist Literary Group seeks to examine the economics, politics, and aesthetics of remakes, reboots, and readaptations in film, television, and literature.  In 2019 alone, there are over twenty films being released that are remakes, reboots, or readaptations. These films range from Disney’s live-action remakes of Dumbo, Aladdin, and The Lion King to the second chapter of the readaptation of Stephen King’s IT and a reboot of the Child’s Play franchise. Why are these types of films so popular? More specifically, why is there an increasing market for such films and television shows?
