[DEADLINE EXTENDED]

This proposed roundtable will discuss intersections of cinema and videogame studies. Though videogames clearly borrow from and even influence film, much early videogame criticism was at pains to distinguish gaming as a unique medium. Having at this point thoroughly complicated the notion that videogames are "interactive movies," how do we now discuss the relationship between games and film? How do we put videogame studies and film studies in conversation while respecting the specific qualities of each medium? What theoretical and methodological approaches allow for productive interdisciplinary and comparative study?

Dear Colleagues,

Submissions are welcome for the following panel at the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies annual conference in Cleveland, Ohio, April 4-7 2013. Abstracts must be submitted by September 15 to sadowjb@oneonta.edu.

Unromantic Charlotte Smith

Though Charlotte Smith's poetry tends to be apprehended by its relationship to romanticism, this panel will seek papers that view her poems and other work through the lens of earlier eighteenth-century discourse. Her relationship to prior works of poetry and poetic genres is an obvious topic of interest, but so might be her relationship to science, natural history, aesthetics, print, and other areas.

[UPDATE] NeMLA 2013 CFP: Queer Self-Representation: It Isn't All About Me

Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)

This panel will examine the significance and radical potential of queer self-representation. The personal continues to be political, and for queer constituencies whose representation by a dominant mainstream has been either absent, negative, or consistently rife with limiting stereotypes, self-representation becomes crucial. However, while queer self-representation may engage with such negative representation, it is not limited to this function. Nor is it limited to a particular genre, including autobiography.
