Edited Collection: CINEPHILIA AND TEACHING (Abstract due: June 1, 2013)

Monday, March 11, 2013 - 6:15pm
Rashna Wadia Richards (Rhodes College) and David T. Johnson (Salisbury University)

We invite contributions to CINEPHILIA AND TEACHING, an edited collection of essays clustered around ideas of cinephilia and pedagogy. While essays may explicitly interrogate connections between ciné-love and teaching, we envision a collection that explores both concepts broadly, creating a productive dialogue between cinephilia and education, a long-neglected relationship in Film Studies.

CFP: "Literature and Pornography" Special Issue, March 17, 2013

Monday, March 11, 2013 - 6:02pm
LIT: Literature Interpretation Theory

The dust may have begun to settle in the blogosphere, but E. L. James's Fifty Shades of Gray novels continue to dominate the bestseller list, impervious to the literary outrage that greeted their remarkable success. In the wake of this phenomenon, LIT: Literature Interpretation Theory invites essays on literary works that flirt with, dabble in, or wholly embrace the pornographic. We are interested in scholarly engagements with the history, theory, and politics of pornography, as well as studies of the popularity, reception, censorship, and "literariness" of texts considered pornographic.

Wallace Stevens: Cognitive Approaches to his Poetry and Prose (deadline for proposals 10-1-13)

Monday, March 11, 2013 - 4:42pm
The Wallace Stevens Society

Call for papers:

The Wallace Stevens Society seeks proposals on Stevens and cognition for a panel or roundtable at the American Literature Association annual conference (Washington, D.C., May 22-25, 2014). Over the past two decades, cognitive approaches to literature have flourished by redefining texts as "mental spaces" in which readers negotiate linguistic and perceptual challenges posed by literary structures. This conference presentation, coupled with a subsequent special issue of The Wallace Stevens Journal, will be a first sustained look at Stevens' poetry and/or prose in relation to cognitive models of metaphor, narrative, deixis, rhythm, sound, grammar, rhyme, and the lyric voice. Possible topics to explore include the following:

When it comes to teaching, graduate students often learn by doing. By virtue of their experiments and their proximity to the undergraduate curriculum, they are among the most innovative educators on their campuses. The Medieval and Early Modern Students Association at UCLA and the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies invite graduate students to share their experience at a conference on June 7 that deals with teaching Medieval and Early Modern material in the undergraduate classroom.
