This panel looks at the representation of the scientific 'body' in the literature of the greater eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Some of the questions that might be posed here could include how this literary/historical period perceived, defined and/or categorized scientific constructions of the body? What role did gender play in this construction? How did the non-scientific community adapt or subvert scientific understanding about gender and the body?

CFP: thresholds no. 1, Extraneous

full name / name of organization: 
Fran McDonald, Whitney Trettien

thresholds is a new digital journal co-edited by Whitney Trettien (UNC) and Fran McDonald (U. Louisville). The journal's platform bears witness to the dynamic processes that constitute reading and writing by way of a split-screen architecture. On the left side of the screen, we publish short essays (essayer – trial, attempt, test). The right side of the screen is populated by the various text fragments, images, audio, and video clips that inspired the author and propelled the corresponding work. Unlike a footnote or endnote, these fragments are not explicitly harnessed to the essay's main body; they do not rustle the reader toward a specific interpretative conclusion.

Abstract Deadline: 15th April 2016

All texts and artworks will have at one stage been a work in progress, despite the tendency to value them as cultural artefacts once they are deemed finished and made available for consumption. Redrafting and editing are processes which strive towards a "final" product, meaning their publication often results in the loss or occlusion of multiple ancillary versions. Such materials are important to our understanding of how texts and works are shaped and reshaped, and by whom.

This permanent MMLA panel invites abstracts that engage with collectives, communities, and print culture, widely conceived. In line with the conference theme, "border states," how does print culture give us a sense of community boundaries? How are collective identities formed, altered, or dismantled? What role does print culture play in shaping collectives or communities? How can we (re)conceive solidarity or community through the literary? This panel can engage with but is not limited to the following topics: literary criticism, critical theory (including theories of affect), aesthetics, propaganda, literary texts, and print culture more broadly.

I seek contributions for an edited collection on Jane Austen and masculinity. This peer-reviewed collection aims to include essays that address Austen's treatment of men and masculinity within the context of ongoing feminist, queer, and gender studies scholarship on her writings. Potential contributors could focus on such issues as: Austen's fictional depiction of historical challenges and expectations for men (including her treatment of violence, soldiers, imperialism, militarism, or class conflict), her representation of male sexuality and the male body, the function of men within families (including their roles as husbands, brothers, and/or fathers), the deployment of patriarchy in her stories, and many additional topics.

Special Issue: Andrew Davies: the screenwriter as adaptor

full name / name of organization: 
Journal of Adaptation in Film and Performance

In celebration of the newly created Andrew Davies archive at De Montfort University, Leicester, The Journal of Adaptation in Film and Performance is issuing a special edition on the British screenwriter.
Davies is perhaps most famous for his work on the BBC's 1995 Pride and Prejudice with his vision of Darcy becoming one of the most enduring images of late 20th century popular culture. As well as revisiting Darcy with commercially successful adaptations of Helen Fielding's modern-day adaptation of Pride and Prejudice - Bridget Jones's Diary - Davies' legacy is wide-ranging in terms of classic-novel and contemporary fiction adaptations.
