CALL FOR PAPERS EDITED COLLECTION: WORLD DOMINATION - DOCTOR WHO IN TRANSLATION. DEADLINE: JUNE 15 2010

updated: 
Monday, April 26, 2010 - 7:51am
Dr. Andrew O'Day

In the 'classic' Doctor Who series Tom Baker narrative 'The Masque of Mandragora' (1976) the Doctor tells Sarah Jane Smith that her ability to hear foreign languages in English is a Time Lord gift he shares with her. More recently, in Russell T. Davies' Doctor Who (and in particular in the episodes 'The End of the World', 2005, and 'The Fires of Pompeii', 2008) the Doctor tells his companions Rose Tyler and Donna Noble respectively that the TARDIS translates other tongues into English. In the new series episode 'Smith and Jones' (2007), the alien Judoon's speech is translated into English by means of an assimilation device. But what happens when Doctor Who is sold abroad and translated into languages other than English?

Ut Pictura Poesis: Thinking about Representation in Late Medieval and Renaissance England, 1-2 October 2010

updated: 
Sunday, April 25, 2010 - 8:35pm
Queen's University, Kingston

In his Apology for Poetry, Sir Philip Sidney defines poetry as "an art of imitation", a form of "mimesis"; he describes it as not only a "representing, counterfeiting, or figuring forth" but more importantly as a "speaking picture." This attribution of aural and visual elements to the poet's pen delineates poetry as a medium able to integrate seemingly disparate elements: a site of necessary hybridity. As a "speaking picture", poetry mirrors the visual arts by imagistically portraying the verba (signifier) or form which conveys, transmutes, or mimics the res (signified) or Platonic Idea. The visual arts, which mirror or embody the spoken word, serve to access this elusive signified.

The Foreign Language Film Conference (see former post on the conference: http://call-for-papers.sas.upenn.edu/node/36707) focuses its attention this year on genre, and this panel subsequently turns to a hybrid genre of the postmodern period: the satiric noir. While it has no official name (we could call it obscurité humour, humour noir, noir comedy etc.), the genre certainly exists.

CCCC 2011 Panel "Contested Acts: Literary Genres in the First-Year Writing Classroom" (4/30)

updated: 
Friday, April 23, 2010 - 7:57am
Keith Wilhite / Duke University - Thompson Writing Program

It's been nearly eighteen years since College English published the point/counter-point between Erika Lindemann and Gary Tate over the place of literature in the composition classroom. The debate has shown no signs of slowing. Scholars continue to weigh in on what Peter Elbow has aptly described as "sites of conflict" between literature and composition. We have seen withering critiques of literary studies, encomiums to literature's salvific potential, and appeals to reconcile the rhetorical and poetic strands that characterize every act of reading and writing.

The shape of nationalist fervor is drawn against a background of coherent visuals. But what if the mother tongue speaks in pluralities at the very origin of the nation? This panel seeks to examine the roles of multilingualisms, accents, dialects, and inflections within and upon the national project, as well as the effects of gendered experience on nationalist constructs.

This panel welcomes papers from a wide variety of disciplines and scholarly perspectives,including pedagogy and the interdisciplines.
