Science and Magic in Lawman and in the Brut Tradition (9/15; Kalamazoo, 5/8-11, 2014)

Wednesday, July 3, 2013 - 10:36am
International Lawman's Brut Society

This session engages recent scholarship on magic and science (or natural philosophy) in the Brut, as well as in the wider Brut tradition, including work on astronomy and on the Merlinian prophecies. As evidence points to Lawman's participation in the intellectual, philosophical, and theological currents of late twelfth/early thirteenth-century England, the session invites proposals on topics related to science and magic--broadly conceived--in Lawman and in analogous Brut texts. The session allows for a wide range of potential topics, including prophecy, demonology, astronomy, medicine, alchemy, the bestiary, dream theory, the miraculous, Welsh magical traditions, and other references to the natural and preternatural worlds.

This panel seeks papers for the upcoming NeMLA in April 2014. Jacques' proclamation that 'all the world's a stage' has proved prophetic in ways he could not have foreseen.

Wednesday, July 3, 2013 - 8:54am
Northeast Modern Language Association

This panel seeks papers for the upcoming NeMLA in April 2014. In the years since his death, the stature of Italo Calvino has only continued to grow. While his status as an Italian writer was never in doubt, the global range of his work is still being explored. This panel invites papers interested in pursuing this framework, political and historical, national and transnational, literary and philosophical. The influences on Calvino's fictions were immense, and the influence of his fictions have been equally immense. This panel seeks to better understand these influences. Please email abstracts by Sept. 30 tojackiec159@hotmail.com

[REMINDER] - CFP for edited collection on Arrested Development due July 31

Wednesday, July 3, 2013 - 8:51am
Kristin M. Barton

Over the course of its original three-year run on Fox, the television series Arrested Development quickly became a cult favorite and earned twenty-two Emmy nominations and six wins, including Outstanding Comedy Series in 2004. Unafraid to push boundaries, the series routinely satirized issues of race, sexuality, family, love, politics, and class, to name only a few.

With this in mind, Dr. Kristin M.
