UPDATE: House Work: Masters and Servants in Post-Modern Culture

Tuesday, September 15, 2009 - 12:24pm
NEMLA

Final call for papers on House Work: Masters and Servants in Post-Modern Culture.

While many people might assume that contemporary fascination with servant characters is limited to British TV and literature (i.e., "Upstairs, Downstairs," "1900 House," The Remains of the Day, Gosford Park), even the Americans have gotten in on the game. 1980s American television was fascinated with the importation of servant characters in shows like "Benson," "Mr. Belvedere," and Fran Drescher's "The Nanny." This panel will explore post-modern representations of servants and servant culture.

Please send 300 word abstracts to akmcclellan@plymouth.edu.
Deadline: September 30, 2009

Greetings fellow scholars,

How has the social practice of culture formed / continue to form the ideological condition of "being American?" With that said, what does it mean to be an American in the 21st Century? What are the ontological pieces that plait our parsonage?

CFP - Horror Politics

It is through politics that affairs are governed, and order and justice are expected. However, the word "politics" often connotes corruption and abuse. Politics involve power, and power implies its own misuse. The double bind of politics is in its very inescapability. Politics serve to organize, yet simultaneously produce dishonesty through the abuse of power.
