CFP: [Renaissance] Staging Superstitions

updated: 
Wednesday, October 24, 2007 - 9:59pm
Verena Theile

We are soliciting proposals for a collection of critical articles on the
representation of supernatural imaginings, staged superstitions, and
enacted witchcraft and apparitions in the theaters of early modern Europe.

While the focus of this collection of essays lies with dramatic literature,
we seek to analyze literary interactions between fictional and allegedly
non-fictional literatures and to engage cross-disciplinary approaches that
consider literatures in the context of historical, political, legal, and
social analyses.

Some of the literary texts that we hope to explore in the context of
early modern drama include:

Negotiating the Mediascape - Theory and Practice Interchange in
Contemporary Media.

A one-day conference exploring the relationships between theory and
practice in a changing media environment.

Friday 2 May 2008
Department of Media, Canterbury Christ Church University

Recent developments in film, radio, television, the press and the
internet have radically transformed the mediascape. This has brought
about various challenges to established modes of critical enquiry, and
our understanding of the relationship between media theory and practice.
Negotiating the Mediascape seeks to address these changing relationships.

CFP: [American] Hemingway's Legacy of Influence (12/21/07; ALA 5/22/08-5/25/08)

Ernest Hemingway's commitment to realistic representation gave us works
that are raw, graceful, vigorous, and unexpectedly complex. In the
citation for the 1954 Nobel Prize for Literature, the committee claimed
that Hemingway had "set a standard as easy to imitate as it is difficult
to obtain. After the writer’s death, one critic similarly wrote that
Hemingway was “the inventor of a style that has influenced other writers
more than any other in our time.” This panel will explore that legacy of
influence on Hemingway’s contemporaries and subsequent writers, including
John O’Hara, Norman Mailer, Raymond Carver, Tim O’Brien, Charles
