April 7-11, 2010 Textual Refigurations: Examining the Practice of Rewriting Old Texts into New Contexts. A 2010 NeMLA panel

Saturday, June 20, 2009 - 11:45am
Northeast Moder

This panel will examine the practice of importing characters and plot lines from one literary work to another. This panel hopes to reveal how the relationship between the newer work and its source material affects the way the way that readers and audiences receive both works, particularly when this relationship crosses cultural, chronological, and genre divides. Please send abstracts to Michael Rio and William Duffy at wsduffy@buffalo.edu.

Theorizing the Law of God and the Law of Man Theorizing the Law of God and the Law of Man in Late Medieval Literature

Saturday, June 20, 2009 - 9:57am
Andreea Boboc, Kathleen E. Kennedy

We are inviting interdisciplinary contributions on law and literature for a collection of essays and CMS session that theorize the law of God and the law of man in late medieval literature (English and continental). We hope to receive submissions that explore various aspects of law: common, canon, civil, or customary law. We welcome theoretical angles that are in themselves interdisciplinary, such as cultural anthropology, social/cultural history, or critical theory. We see this volume as a contribution toward what Anthony Musson calls "the new legal history" – an exciting emerging field that values the intersection of law, literary texts, and culture.

Anarchism and the Literary Imagination, Call for Chapters

Friday, June 19, 2009 - 4:20pm
J. Shantz


Chapters are sought for the collection Anarchism and the Literary Imagination. This volume examines historical and contemporary engagements of anarchism and literary production. Anarchists have used literary production to express opposition to values and relations characterizing advanced capitalist (and socialist) societies while also expressing key aspects of the alternative values and institutions proposed within anarchism. Among favoured themes are anarchist critiques of corporatization, prisons and patriarchal relations as well as explorations of developing anarchist perspectives on revolution, ecology and ecocriticism, polysexuality and mutual aid.

The French in American Popular Culture and Society

Friday, June 19, 2009 - 11:28am
Richard Gray / Carson-Newman College

In the post 9/11 era, scrutiny and criticism of France by the United States has increased. On numerous occasions, the latter has questioned France's position with regard to global policy. This fact notwithstanding, for centuries, the United States of America has been culturally and socially impacted by France. The domains that have been influenced by French presence are extensive. For the upcoming essay collection entitled The French in American Popular Culture and Society, I am soliciting contributions that illustrate the influence and impact that France has made on societal and cultural components of the United States since the birth of the nation in 1776.
