Julie H. Kim / Northeastern Illinois University

Call for papers for a collection of essays for a volume tentatively titled Gender and Sexuality in Contemporary Detective Fiction.

I am looking to put together 10-12 essays (which I will edit and introduce) with the following sub-categories:

1) Gender power dynamics:
This section might study power dynamics between male-female investigating teams/pairs. This section would also address meaningful differences between the treatment of a primary series featuring a male detective and a secondary series featuring a female detective written by the same author (for example, P.D. James's series on Adam Dalgliesh and on Cordelia Gray).

CFP: Special Issue on "Oil Culture"

Monday, July 12, 2010 - 3:43pm
Daniel Worden, University of Colorado at Colorado Springs; Ross Barrett, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

Petroleum has long been recognized to be a dangerously volatile commodity whose illuminative and propulsive capacities are inseparable from its destructive potential. This catastrophic power has been reaffirmed by the succession of environmental disasters that have accompanied the global expansion of oil extraction--a series of ecological tragedies culminating in the 2010 Deepwater Horizon blowout--and the array of social antagonisms, global political conflicts, and chaotic economic cycles that have developed around the industry since its beginnings.

Time's excesses in music, literature and art

Time's excesses in music, literature and art

This international conference is intended to explore how time may be represented aesthetically in excessive, eccentric and unthinkable ways. Art appears to have found a means of getting around time's dilemmas by depicting it as irrational or portraying the impossibility of getting a firm grasp of it. In art, time has long been shaped as something out of proportion, excessive, or even violent, which is evidenced by works such as Saturn Devouring his Son.

Personal and Social Myth-making in the Work of Margaret Atwood

Sunday, July 11, 2010 - 11:26pm

A central concern of Margaret Atwood's work has been myth-making. She has said the Edible Woman and Surfacing are about characters with unworkable mythologies. The Handmaid's Tale has been read as exploring potential consequences inherent in the beliefs(or mythologies) of religious conservatives. Her most recent work The Year of the Flood features a cult-like group. This panel seeks papers that examine Atwood's evolving vision of the role of mythologies in our lives. Please send 300-750 word abstract by Sept. 30th to Mary Lannon
