20th Southwest English Symposium CFP Abstract Deadline Dec 1st 2014

Monday, September 8, 2014 - 8:42pm
Arizona State University


Our theme for the 2015 interdisciplinary SWES conference is "Transitions" and what that means to the disciplines we work in - across English, the Humanities, Arts, Business, Politics, Sciences, Social spheres, and Technology. The concept is often relevant to scholars in many fields and especially to those whose work straddles the boundaries of one or more disciplines.

Definition: We talk about transitions between time periods, technologies, genres, social movements, sciences, mathematics, design and how big and small ideas permeate movements in society. What this theme should then encourage is the ability to demonstrate analysis and hold discourse on topics related to transitions applicable to any and all disciplines.

[UPDATE] The Literature of Loss

Monday, September 8, 2014 - 5:54pm
Dr Deirdre Flynn / Limerick Literary Weekend

The Literature of Loss

Irish literature is filled with loss; the loss of love, of language, of sovereignty, of wealth, of health and of religion. The atmosphere of loss almost haunts the pages and words of the Irish, and leads to questions about the influence of loss, the representation of loss and the meaning of loss. Where does this loss fit in? How has it changed? What impact do chronological, political, economic and geographical changes have on loss?

CFP: MLA 2016 CHLA-Sponsored, Guaranteed Panel: "The Afterlife of Popular Children's Culture Icons"

Monday, September 8, 2014 - 2:52pm
Children's Literature Association

Throughout the 20th century, the role of the author has played a crucial role in Western culture's understanding of children's media. Children learn from a very early age to associate well-loved fictional characters with individual author-figures, and names like Dr. Seuss and Walt Disney accordingly become inextricably linked with iconic characters like The Grinch and Mickey Mouse. What happens, however, when those characters continue to appear in new stories after their creators die? How does the absence of that signature author figure impact the audience's relationship with those characters? Papers in this panel for the 2016 MLA Convention in Austin, Texas are invited to address these questions.

[UPDATE] The Coming of Age of LGBTQ Studies: Past, Present, and Future Directions (San Diego State University, April 17-18, 2015

Monday, September 8, 2014 - 1:45pm
SDSU LGBTQ Research Consortium

As LGBTQ Studies finds disciplinary space on a growing number of university and college campuses, questions about the cultural and intellectual effects of academic institutionalization have become progressively more urgent:

• Where is the broad field of LGBTQ Studies heading?
• Where has it been? How might we negotiate the relationship between intellectual inquiry and social movements?
• In what ways might the epistemological concerns of LGBTQ Studies affect the pedagogical imperatives of the classroom (and vice-versa)?

"The Coming of Age of LGBTQ Studies" is a two-day conference devoted to exploring these and related questions.

Toronto, Canada

"The Future in/of Television"

While science fiction television series have presented fantastic future worlds since the 1940s, recent contemporary television series represent a future that is not entirely speculative. Television is following the recent trend in dystopian novels and films. Series such as Doctor Who, Fringe, Revolution, Almost Human, The Tomorrow People, and The 100 return to familiar concepts and landscapes envisioned in earlier works but with a difference. Advances in television technologies, the platform of storytelling, have significantly altered how we view television and our relationship to it.
