Intersections: International Journal of Literature and Language Studies

Saturday, August 31, 2013 - 2:31pm

Intersections is an international peer-reviewed journal that is particularly interested in papers that extend or challenge current critical positions in radical ways, especially papers that establish 'impossible' links with other disciplines, theories or approaches. We publish articles on literature, language and theory of any historical period, national culture, ethnic group, genre or media. Articles must demonstrate thorough research with concrete references to recent scholarship in the field. Intersections accepts both British English or American English spelling and forms but authors have to be consistent.

ACLA (20-23 March 2014) SEMINAR : Typography and the Textual Economics of the Mise-en-Page

Saturday, August 31, 2013 - 11:50am
Brendon Wocke (Seminar Organizer)

In "Desistance," Derrida's introduction to Lacoue-Labarthe's "Typography: Mimesis, Philosophy, Politics," Derrida meditates on the "onto-typo-logy." While he is interested in the ineluctable which permeates Lacoue-Labarthe's text, even more interesting is his consideration of typography. Not in terms of constituted domains but rather in terms of the use of the letter, which Derrida refers to as "rythmotypical" or "typorhythmic," considering the manner in which Lacoue Labarthe uses parthenthesis, italics, quotation marks and dashes as part of the apparatus which "opens upon an entirely different thought of mimesis, of typos and of rhuthmos."

[Update] Representing the Contemporary Youth in Teen Television Drama

Friday, August 30, 2013 - 5:05am
45th Annual Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA) , Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

From Beverley Hills 90210 to Gossip Girl and Glee, the genre of the teen drama series has added a unique and multi-faceted dynamic to the American television landscape. The popularity of this genre stems from the way in which it challenges and dramatizes the realities of its young viewers, presenting them with a fantastical reality which is defined by melodrama, materialism and excess. This quality of the genre often causes adult viewers to dismiss the teen drama series as a product of guilty pleasure television.
