Children's Literature Area, Modern Language Association

"The End(s) of Theory in Children's Literature Studies." Reports of theory's death have been widespread and perhaps exaggerated. Many children's literature scholars, such as Perry Nodelman, have recently discussed both the anxieties surrounding theory and the usefulness of theory in the practice of children's literature scholarship. Please send abstracts exploring the current "ends"—state or uses—of theory in children's literature studies by March 15, 2010 to Craig Svonkin (csvonkin@mscd.edu).

In the fall of 1894, W. K.L. Dickson assisted Thomas Edison in his experimentation with sound film. He shot a sequence in which one man plays a violin before the recording phonograph horn while two others dance. Might this be the first music documentary?

JOURNAL OF ARAB & MUSLIM MEDIA RESEARCH

The sudden increase in the number of Arab satellite channels targeting
Arabs inside and outside the region has been paralleled by an explosion in
the number of women working as TV presenters, producers, and news
reporters in these various channels. Their appearance has not been
confined to women's and children's programmes, but has been markedly
noticeable in the serious genres of news and current affairs too.
Furthermore, women from the most conservative societies in the Arabian
Gulf have also gained access to these channels, and their presence has
indeed been enforced by the establishment of dedicated Gulf channels such
as Al-Jazeera, MBC, Rotana Gulf, IQRA, Dubai, Sharjah and Saudi Channel2

III Gothic Congress: The Monster in Art and its Different Manifestations; UNAM (Mexico City, March 22-24, 2010)

The Gothic Literature is just beginning to be accepted as a literary field worth of study among Mexican scholars. The doors remain open to deepen into the study of a style whose manifestations go beyond time, culture and genre boundaries.

Objetive: After the great response received in the two previous Gothic Congresses (2008 & 2009), this time the aim is to keep encouraging the interest in the Gothic among both students and scholars at the UNAM (National Autonomous University of Mexico) and other Mexican institutions. To achieve this, we propose to start from the study of the Monster as a central character among a series of other conventions that reappear in the Gothic into different contexts.

American Literature Association May 27-30, 2010 Science Fiction in the Caribbean/Latin American Diaspora Panel

When Junot Díaz's protagonist in The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao (2007) asks the question "What more sci-fi than the Santo Domingo? What more fantasy than the Antilles?" he both draws our attention to the affinity that the geographical space of the Caribbean has for the fantastical elements of science fiction (SF) and also possibly indicts the critics of the genre for their lack of acknowledgement of the narratives from this area that might fit its characteristics. This panel seeks papers that support Oscar's assertion.
