New Worlds, Terrifying Monsters, Impossible Things: Exploring the Contents and Contexts of Doctor Who: PopMatters eBook

Tuesday, March 24, 2015 - 1:01pm
Erin Giannini/PopMatters

Doctor Who holds the distinction of not only being the longest running sci-fi series, but also one of the longest running prime-time series, ever. While numerous scholarship (both academic and non) has examined both the original series (1963-1989) and the rebooted series (2005-present), we are seeking to examine the historical and cultural contexts of the series, including topics such as the "missing" episodes, the show's place on the BBC, its global transmission, and branding of the series. (We will not be covering analyses of fandom or individual episodes.)

We welcome ideas for articles, but we are especially seeking proposals on:

The reception/transmission of the series internationally (past or present): BBC, PBS, SyFy, BBC America

Literary Histories of Science: Race, Gender, and Class

Tuesday, March 24, 2015 - 11:33am
Leila A. McNeill/MMLA 2015 Convention

In the history of science, it has been well-documented that institutionalized science and professional scientific circles actively and systematically excluded people from their ranks based on gender, race, and class. However, what has been underrepresented is the scientific work and endeavors of the marginalized groups themselves. This session seeks to recover some of these excluded voices and stories by investigating the creative, alternative ways that these groups participated in scientific discourse.

[UPDATE] Reminder: NARRATIVE AND THE NOVEL/THE NOVEL AS NARRATIVE Abstracts to be Submitted by April 1st

The University of New South Wales, Australia

A symposium hosted by the Centre for Modernism Studies in Australia

Saturday 16th of May, 2015

The novel as a distinct genre of prose emerged in the period of modernity. From the eighteenth century, marked by scholars as the period of the 'rise of the novel', to the late twentieth century, during which the trope of 'the death of the novel' gained cultural traction, the novel has sought to both draw upon and distinguish itself from other narrative genres, from history, biography, memoir, and travelogues, to film, television, and digital storytelling.
