CFP: Rhetoric & Technical Communication, Southwest PCA/ACA (11\1\13; 2/19-22/14)

updated: 
Tuesday, August 6, 2013 - 4:58pm
Southwest Popular / American Culture Association

The theme for the 35th annual SWPACA conference is "Popular and American Culture Studies: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow." We invite proposals for individual or panel presentations that consider the theme as it relates to rhetoric and technical communication. How does culture influence the work of rhetoric and/or technical communication? How has/does/will culture affect our theoretical and pedagogical choices? What changes in culture do we need to understand in order to be more productive scholars and more effective teachers? Feel free to interpret the conference theme broadly.

Depicting A Mormon Moment: Mormon Characters and Mormon Authors in American Popular Culture. Call for Chapters (1 February 14)

updated: 
Tuesday, August 6, 2013 - 4:12pm
Mark Decker and Michael Austin

When Mitt Romney captured the Republican presidential nomination, news outlets such as Time, CNN, and the Huffington Post had already begun to talk about a "Mormon Moment" in the United States. At the same time that the Romney campaign focused the nation's attention on the LDS Church, a variety of media forces combined to spread the Mormon Moment across the culture. Between Romney's entrance into the 2008 presidential campaign and the present, The Book of Mormon became a Broadway hit, Big Love concluded its run, Cody Brown moved his complicated family to Las Vegas, and Brady Udall wrote another well-received novel about Mormon oddballs.

Seminar on 'Shakespeare and Dance' at Shakespeare Association of America Annual Meeting, St. Louis, 10-12 April, 2014

updated: 
Tuesday, August 6, 2013 - 2:07pm
Lynsey McCulloch (Coventry University) & Brandon Shaw (Brown University)

Alan Brissenden's 1981 Shakespeare and the Dance is the only full-length scholarly treatment of dance within Shakespeare's play texts. Despite subsequent academic interest in movement, materiality and the body – and the growth of dance studies as a disciplinary field – Shakespeare's employment of dancing as both theatrical device and thematic marker remains under-studied. Recent work by Jennifer Nevile, Mark Franko and Barbara Ravelhofer on Renaissance dance has radically altered our notions of choreography, embodiment and performativity in the period but Shakespeare remains, for the most part, absent from the discussion.
