In the Holzwege version of “Der Spruch des Anaximander,” Martin Heidegger advances the need to translate oneself prior to undertaking any translation of early Greek thinking (303). At the level of perception Nietzsche locates foundational moments of translation (Übertragungen) at each stage of the movement from stimulation to concept-formation (Über Wahrheit und Lüge §1: 312-17).

Reckonings: Essays on American Revenge Narratives (edited collection) DEADLINE EXTENDED

Tuesday, September 6, 2016

I invite proposals for a collection of essays that examines the theme of revenge in American fiction, film, and television. Vengeance – that quest for violent reciprocity – is one of storytelling’s oldest and most enduring plots. But in the modern American imaginary the familiar shape of retribution assumes a new form. Over and over, avengers on page and screen desire not only blood but also symbolic victories. In Sherman Alexie’s Indian Killer (1996) a troubled protagonist named John Smith yearns to kill the one “white man [who] was responsible for everything that had gone wrong” for Native Americans.

Young adult literature is home to a host of paradoxes. Inscribing the monstrous and yet rapturous, traumatizing and yet electrifying, self-alienated and yet self-conscious experience of adolescence, texts for and about young adults explore rich and radical liminalities. The Young Adult Literature session of PAMLA 2016 invites your proposal on any theme or topic of study pertaining to the vibrant field of YA literature and culture. We welcome engaging, provocative analyses of YA literature and texts (including graphic novels, comic books, video games, and/or films). Proposals attending to the conference theme "Archives, Libraries, Properties" are especially welcome.

From the enduring popularity of narratives such as Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde (1886) to television series such as the anthology American Horror Story, world cultures appear to be obsessed with bodies and psyches deemed “monstrous.” Jeffrey Jerome Cohen, editor of the collection of essays Monster Theory: Reading Culture, proposes that monster’s body is a cultural body, a body that cannot be categorically confined, but exists to problematize and to escape any categories we may create.  In their 2012 text Speaking of Monsters: A Teratological Anthology, editors Caroline Joan (Kay) S.
