This edited collection seeks to examine the intersections between two significant media systems: stardom and the franchise. It will explore the convergences, tensions and inter-dependences that star-driven texts and franchise cultures have constantly negotiated within the entertainment industry, on a global, historical and multiplatform scale. It aims to analyse franchise sites and strategies as significant nexus where an understanding of stars is created, managed and interpreted, and to analyse the place and value of the star to media franchise production.

Cultural Representations of the Region in Transnational Contexts, c. 1840-1940

updated: 
Tuesday, May 17, 2022 - 6:59am
Radboud University, Department of Modern Languages and Cultures
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 1, 2022

The nineteenth century witnessed an upsurge of representations of the region across Europe and North America, in media ranging from literary fiction to the illustrated periodical and from visual arts to architecture. The rise of regionalism has often been linked to nationalism and nation-building. As such, the transnational dimensions of regionalism—in its themes as well as publication and circulation—are frequently overlooked. These transnational aspects are the focus of the Dutch Research Council-funded project Redefining the Region at Radboud University, which considers representations of the region in literature and illustrated periodicals during the long nineteenth century.

Call for papers (online conference) — Expanded Poetry: The Poetics and Politics of Repetition

updated: 
Sunday, May 8, 2022 - 12:15pm
Institute for Comparative Literature — Faculty of Arts and Humanities of the University of Porto
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, June 15, 2022

The history of poetry is a history of repetition. Poetry has always been shaped by repetition, not only through the repetitive mechanisms of language itself but also through the meter, rhyme, structure, alliterations, anaphors, parallelisms, among other kinds of repetition at the structural, phonetic, rhetorical or lexical levels. In addition, repetition is also crucial for understanding literary periods and movements, as well as for grasping the relationships they establish with each other. Crucially, research has demonstrated how even the discourses of the avant-gardes, with their proposal of radical variation, are often linked to previous historical periods.

SAMLA African American Literature Panel

South Atlantic Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 25, 2022

This traditional session welcomes submission on any aspect of African American Literature that attends to how black writers use literature to bring out discussion on climate injustice. With the conference theme of "change," readers of African American Literature often miss the criticism of climatic injustice that is present in much literary work, especially of 20th Century Black writers. From Zora Hurston, to Richard Wright, to Jean Toomer, etc., there are many instances of a critique of climatic injustices that are often either misread or simply glossed over. This panel aims to reconsider black writers as the leading figures in both ecocriticism and ecofeminism.
