CFP: [20th] Collection on comics and graphic novels

updated: 
Monday, January 7, 2008 - 10:16am
Dan Hassler-Forest

Over the course of the past two years, there has been a marked increase of academic interest in
comic books and graphic novels, from a cultural theory perspective as well as from the fields of
media studies and literature. However, there have been surprisingly few book-length studies on
this topic published from any of these disciplinary perspectives. Hence, while Scott McCloud’s
groundbreaking book Understanding Comics raised public and academic interest in this under-
theorized and challenging medium, and helped to theorize the medium-specific qualities of
sequential pictorial narratives, his book suspends the question of how specific disciplinary
perspectives might be engaged.

CFP: [American] Eugenics in American History and Culture (1/24; ALA 5/22-25)

The Society for the Study of Mixed Race invites paper submissions on all
aspects of eugenics in American history and culture for a panel to take
place at the American Literature Association Annual Conference (details
below). Widely influential in early 20th century America, eugenic thought
informed anti-miscegenation laws, anti-immigration movements,
intelligence theories, etc. Witnessing Nazi atrocities ostensibly stemmed
the eugenic tide in the U.S., but recent scholarship suggests eugenics,
in the forms of discriminatory birth control practices and technologies
introduced by the science of human genetics (cloning, screening,
engineering), remains a powerful current in contemporary American

As forms of knowledge, as practices, and as artefacts, technologies have
reshaped, and continue to reshape, the ways we think, write, create, and
perceive the self, the body and the community. This special issue of WSQ
invites feminist work that considers the concept of technology, conceived
broadly, and explores the multiple technologies --whether high-tech or
low-tech, futuristic, contemporary, or historical â€" that are influencing us.

CFP: [Collections] Medievalists Read the Fiction of M.R. James (04/30/08)

Fred Porcheddu

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

We are currently soliciting essay proposals for an edited collection on
the fiction of M. R. James, tentatively titled “Medievalists Read the
Antiquary: Essays on the Fiction of M. R. James.” As the title reflects,
we are interested in proposals which engage the relationship between
James’s academic medieval studies and his ghost stories, and therefore we
especially invite proposals by specialists in medieval literature,
textuality, history, and art history.
