Hip-hop is one of the most successful forms of global cultural production today. Since its emergence in the Bronx neighborhood of New York City, it has spread around the world and exerted a considerable impact not only on pop culture, but also on social debates around race, class, language, nationality, gender, and a range of other issues. One topic that is rarely discussed, however, is the relationship between hip-hop and the environment.

Cultural Studies Symposium

Ege University 18th Cultural Studies Symposium
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 24, 2021

Dear Cultural Studies Community,

We regret to inform you that Ege University 18th Cultural Studies Symposium, which is supposed to be held in May 2021, is cancelled due to the increasing number of COVID-19 cases all over the world. We, as the Organizing Committee members, believe hosting an online event would not suit the spirit of our symposium which is especially prominent for gathering academics from all the branches of social sciences along with other disciplines in Izmir.

We hope to actualise the event in May 2022 with the expectation of a decrease in the number of COVID-19 cases and are looking forward to welcoming you with an exciting topic.

Thank you for your understanding.
Stay safe,

Dr. Funda Civelekoglu

Media Awards: Beyond the EGOT (Velvet Light Trap #89)

The Velvet Light Trap
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 31, 2021

The “big four” American entertainment awards—the Emmy for television, the Grammy for music, the Oscar for film, and the Tony for theater, often referred to by the “EGOT” acronym—have long served as a barometer of mainstream taste cultures in their respective fields. While literature on media awards is not completely absent, its scope has been narrow. Popular press works on the somewhat standardized journalistic narratives surrounding the EGOT, particularly the Oscars. Scholarly literature has largely focused on awards as they pertain to the international art cinema circuit and its attached film festivals, such as the Cannes Film Festival.

It is difficult to imagine a society where humor is completely absent. From ancient times to the present day, this phenomenon performs the most important functions: from psychological détente to reflection of the socio-cultural and political atmosphere in which this or that community resides. Since the XVIII century, it has also become an instrument of mass communication and political struggle, and becomes an integral part of the mass media.

Panel Title: Changing Perspectives: Adjusting American Literature Lenses

 

Due to the Covid Lockdown this past year, the ALA 2020 conference was canceled. However, we have been informed that a 2021 conference will be held in Boston. To help reconcile the lost panels from this year's canceled conference, the ALA has reached out and offered for those panels that were accepted to reply. While this panel was accepted for the 2020 conference, we have since then lost one of our presenters. Therefore, we would like to extend an invite to anyone interested in joining our panel. Our panel description is:

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, November 10, 2020

Scholars at all stages of their career are invited to take part in a one-day interdisciplinary symposium hosted by the School of English, University Cork, to explore the diverse roles historically played by contagion/outbreak narratives and disease metaphors. We invite 15-minute papers that engage with a variety of cultural forms, such as literature, film, television and photography.  Examples of relevant topics include the function served by fear of contagion in the othering process, contemporary vampirism as a metaphor for sexually-transmitted diseases, zombiism as a metaphor for capitalism, and why epidemics and plagues that stay confined to Africa or Asia rarely form the plots of novels or films.

Critical Essays about Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time

Paul Thomas
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 31, 2021

Overview: In 2010, Cartoon Network debuted a new animated series called Adventure Time, and within just a few short years, the show had become both a pop culture phenomenon and a critical darling; perhaps this reception is best exemplified by the words of the George Foster Peabody Awards Board of Jurors, which praised the show for “subtly teach[ing] lessons about growing up, accepting responsibility, and becoming who you’re meant to be.” But despite this admiration, not many works of scholarship have looked at the show through a critical lens.

Willa Cather and Popular Print Culture

Willa Cather Foundation
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 15, 2021

From Nebraska to Pittsburgh and New York, Willa Cather’s career as a writer was—and has been, even since her death in 1947—inextricably intertwined with various popular print forms. This conference will focus on the intersections of Cather’s life and writings with newspapers and magazines. Cather sometimes disparaged periodicals by hinting to friends and colleagues that she reluctantly published her work in them only to support her more serious writing, yet she understood very well their importance to a writer’s standing in American culture during her lifetime.
