Call for chapter proposals: Television Comedy & Cultural Crisis

updated: 
Wednesday, February 16, 2022 - 3:14pm
Holly Holladay / Missouri State University
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 31, 2022

We are seeking proposals for an edited collection tentatively titled Television Comedy & Cultural Crisis. Chapters should focus on a specific television series, and address how that series engages with the discourse of a particular cultural crisis through comedy. The function of comedy should be foregrounded, as the collection will be held together through the central question of how humor acts as space through which we can resist normative ways of thinking about these cultural crises. 

Contributors might consider humorous depictions of, but are not limited to:

  • The afterlife/faith

  • Environmentalism/climate crisis

Both “culture” and “people” are largely undefined and inherently diverse forms, susceptible to malleability and appropriation to suit different agendas. Considering popular culture as a field of struggle leads us to a distinction between popular forms of control as well as participation. Popular culture therefore remains tied to questions of representation, enactment, regulation and control. Reading the form requires the deployment of modes such as symbols and codes (semiotics), apparatus of production (political economy approach), audience and consumer response as well as through studies of the social life of cultural forms and their political frames.

Gone But Not Quite Forgotten: Recovering Lost Writers and Texts

Tuesday, February 15, 2022 - 3:42pm
Pennsylvania College English Association (PCEA) Annual Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, March 1, 2022

The Pennsylvania College English Association (PCEA) invites proposals from faculty members, graduate students, and independent scholars for its 2022 Annual Conference on the theme of recovering lost writers and lost texts. We are especially interested in recovering marginalized voices, finding reasons for their disappearance, and charting a path to bring their writing and lives back into the light of current scholarship. Lost or forgotten work by canonical authors would also be welcome subjects of literary inquiry as part of this call, as would be papers that trace the evolution of a literary text from manuscript to magazine publication to book form if the changes are radical.

Reconfiguring Digital Spaces: GLO Conference 2022

If the pandemic has taught us anything, it is that we have become painfully aware of how highly dependent we are on networked computers in most facets of our everyday lives. Shuffling from Zoomiverse to Metaverse and everything in between, computers remain the focal point of interactivity in life, entertainment, scholarship, and labor as in-person activities become increasingly constricted. Alternatives must be found; and even though dreams of totally transferring consciousnesses to digital avatars remain deeply rooted in the literary cyberpunk imaginaries of the 1980s and 90s, the pandemic brings us closer to realizing them in surprising ways.

DEADLINE EXTENDED TO FEB. 15

Rewriting the Abortion Narrative: The Power of Popular Culture

With the Supreme Court poised to radically change or even overturn Roe v. Wade after hearing the Mississippi Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case, critical attention is being turned toward the changing ways popular culture depicts abortion. Popular culture is uniquely positioned to offer these narratives, particularly given the research that suggests that the way abortion is depicted in popular culture impacts cultural perceptions of abortion and may even, as Steph Herold has noted, “have very real ‘policy implications,’ particularly in such a politically charged climate.”

SURGE: Writing Beyond the Binary

California State University, Dominguez Hills - English Graduate Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 13, 2022

This year’s California State University, Dominguez Hills English Graduate Association Spring Conference theme, SURGE: Writing Beyond The Binary, evokes transcendence of false dichotomy in many realms: gender, politics, race, class, sexuality, emotional well-being, literary criticism, and so much more. As writers, researchers, and scholars, we wield the power to reinforce or dispel reductive binary distinctions in our work, making it our job to SURGE ahead through these and other barriers toward portraying and creating a more inclusive, accepting, understanding world. While we work to re-energize our lives and refill the spaces we re-enter, how we choose to forge ahead will make all the difference.

Jeff Dailey/MLA--Lyrica Society for Word/Music Relations
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 20, 2022

How are novels adapted for onstage presentations as musicals or operas?  Given their large numbers of characters, multiple settings, and large spans of time, the plots of novels need to be adapted to fit within the logistical and chronological realities of live theatre, as compared when novels are adapted for film or video.  Also, how is music used in these adaptations?  We seek proposals that examine how this has been done in the past and is being done now.

What strategies are contemporary life writers using to approach queer/trans pasts that remain unrecognized or unrecognizable? Possible topics may include archival silences, biofiction, LGBTQ childhoods and queer temporality, intergenerational mentorship, HIV/AIDS’ legacy, and more.

This call for papers is for a special session at the Modern Language Association 2023 conference, which means that it is a non-guaranteed panel. Please submit 250-word abstracts and CVs to Megan Paslawski (Queens College, CUNY) to be considered for the panel proposal.
