Nadine Farghaly

First appearing in the 1996 video game Tomb Raider, Lara Croft has since then been featured in over ten video games, two motion pictures, several graphic novel series, an animated series and books. Moreover, the character's fame secured her a place in the Guinness book of records as the most recognizable female video game character, as well as a Star on the Walk of Fame in Hollywood. Lady Lara Croft is an intelligent, adventurous, attractive and athletic English Aristocrat and archaeologist. Although she has widely received positive receptions as a strong female role model, there are some voices who reduce this character to her outward appearance.

The 28th of October 1994 marked the beginning of one of the most successful franchises in television history. It was the day Roland Emmerich released the first Stargate movie to the cinemas. Little did he know that was laying the foundation for one of TV's longest and most successful TV shows. Only three years later Brad Wright and Jonathan Glassner decided to create a TV show that would pick up exactly where the movie blockbuster ended. Stargate SG-1 was born and ran for ten successful seasons. Moreover, two spinoffs originated from Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis which ran for five seasons, as well as Stargate Universe which ran for two seasons.

The Albee Review -- seeking articles for new peer-reviewed journal

Friday, June 28, 2013 - 12:05pm
Editor, Michael Y. Bennett

The Albee Review—a publication of The Edward Albee Society (see below)—is a new, annual peer-reviewed journal (initially electronic and then print) meant to provide an outlet for scholarship and criticism on, or related to, Edward Albee and his works. While the journal welcomes different approaches—in keeping with Albee's own view that drama is literature—The Albee Review is especially interested in articles that examine Albee's plays as dramatic literature.

Essay Collection: Literary History/Liberal History (Abstracts Due 8/15/2013)

Friday, June 28, 2013 - 7:08am
Literary History/Liberal History

We invite proposals for a collection of essays on the relationship between the history of literary history and the history of liberalism. If both concepts—literary history and liberalism—emerged in the late seventeenth century and if both concepts seem obsolete, outmoded, or eclipsed in the twenty-first century, then what can we learn from the history of their entanglements and estrangements? As abstract concepts whose modes of valuation have far-reaching and closely-felt material effects, literary history and liberalism are disciplinarily and ethically distinct—after all literary history is elitist and ties us to the culture of the past while liberalism imagines progress towards individuality, equality, and universality.
