UPDATE: Graphic Narratives in the Literature Classroom, Chicago Nov 4-7, 2010

Friday, May 21, 2010 - 2:50pm
Midwestern Modern Language Association

Increasingly comic books and graphic narratives/novels find their way onto literature syllabi. Recent anthologies such as _Teaching Visual Literacy: Using Comic Books, Graphic Novels, Anime, Cartoons, and More to Develop Comprehension and Thinking Skills,_ edited by Nancy Frey and Douglas Fisher, and _Building Literacy Connections with Graphic Novels: Page by Page, Panel by Panel,_ edited by James Bucky Carter, emphasize the use for such texts in secondary schools. But what are the benefits of teaching comic books and graphic narratives in college? And how do we best go about doing it? This panel seeks papers that discuss the benefits of teaching these new genres in the Literature classroom.

"Jung's Red Book: Confronting the Unconscious through Word and Image," SAMLA (November 5-7, 2010)

Friday, May 21, 2010 - 1:40pm
South Atlantic Modern Language Association, session sponsored by the Society for Critical Exchange

In 1913, at a moment of personal and professional crisis, Jung began recording a series of visions and fantasies in what would become an extended "confrontation with the unconscious." The Red Book, newly published last year after decades kept under a shroud of family secrecy, is rife with all the chaos and horror one might expect an honest accounting of the unplumbed depths of the human psyche to contain. The book has another striking feature as well, however: it is visually stunning. Comprised of flowing calligraphic text illuminated by richly colored and densely symbolic images, it is on its own terms an aesthetic object of great precision and beauty.

Inaugural Issue: Video Stores

Call for Papers / Projects:
Please submit by August 15, 2010

This special issue pays overdue attention to the space of the video store as a site of inquiry for media and cultural studies.
We seek a wide range of works (medium–length essays of 1500–2500 words, digital art projects, audio/video interviews) that explore the significance of video stores — how they have (or have not) figured in film and media cultures, histories, and theories. In short this issue of Media Fields seeks contributions that write the video store into film and media studies.
