Fireside Tales of Terror: The Gothic and Winter

updated: 
Wednesday, September 7, 2022 - 10:30pm
Jen Baker (University of Warwick) and Sandie Mills (University of Hull)
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 17, 2022

“Horrors belong as naturally to the fireside, as fireside belongs to Christmas” declares the narrator of the piece “Fireside Horrors for Christmas” in the December 1847 issue of Dublin University Magazine. This image of “popular fireside stories or winter’s tales” exchanged in communal settings had, as the late Catherine Belsey explained, a “long vernacular tradition” (2010). Furthermore, it was, she argues, a practice that often-challenged orthodox institutional discourse about, for example, the “true meaning” of Christmas or the origins of ghosts and tapped into secular and “pagan” rituals and practices.

Radical Sondheim (Online Symposium)

updated: 
Wednesday, September 7, 2022 - 10:29pm
Kingston University
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 29, 2023

In the wake of his death in 2021, tributes emphasised how Sondheim’s creations were not only a postmodern challenge to the hummable tunes of traditional musical theatre and conventional simplicities of staging and plot, but also to expected ideas of the musical theatre protagonist. Writing in The Atlantic, Sophie Gilbert expressed the audience’s love for Sondheim as a response to how his work ‘takes the typically unseen… and forces them into the spotlight’.

Thursday, September 15, 2022

“That’s a Take”: The International Television Commercial as Short Film is a two-day, virtual conference that engages interdisciplinary scholarship from any critical/methodological perspective examining the international television commercial production as a short film narrative.

"Breathing in Unbreathable Circumstances": Women of Color Feminisms in Medieval Studies (A Roundtable) - ICMS Kalamazoo 2023, Virtual Session

updated: 
Thursday, July 28, 2022 - 9:20am
Lisa D. Camp / Sarah LaVoy
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 15, 2022

In Undrowned: Black Feminist Lessons from Marine Mammals, Alexis Pauline Gumbs meditatively interrogates the language of the natural sciences and its attendant racialized, gender-essentialized assumptions, and provides a model for identifying similar logics in Medieval Studies. Recent attention on the integration of Women of Color Feminisms in Medieval Studies has illuminated how these logics make the "circumstances" of such integration "unbreathable" (Gumbs 3). In this roundtable, we will engage with the possibility of Women of Color Feminisms' ability to breathe in such circumstances.
