Have you ever read a review of a comic or graphic novel on a website and felt like you were only reading a book report? How many of you noticed an article in an academic journal that focused on one of your favorite graphic novels, but it ended up glossing over – or completely forgetting – to mention aspects of the art and dryly deconstructed the narrative?

Eastern and Western Synergies and Imaginations, an edited volume in a forthcoming Brill series East and West: Culture, Diplomacy and Interactions, is now inviting submissions.

The age of gobalisation has witnessed, and is witnessing, increasing activities across border and interactions between nations, especially between the East and the West. Multi-dimensional communication and collaboration between the East and the West from the Age of Sail to the Modern Era are often narrated and re-created in print and on stage.

New Approaches to Gertrude Stein's THREE LIVES

Friday, September 30, 2016

Since its publication in 1909, Gertrude Stein’s Three Lives has been, unlike much of Stein’s other works, the object of academic interest and artistic commentary, appropriation, and criticism. Stein herself more than once complained about people continually wishing her to write “another ‘Melanctha,’” while others have judged this work as everything from an ideological racist screed to the most sensitive and sympathetic portrait of an African American woman of its time. This panel seeks to encourage new critical perspectives on what remains Stein’s most popular and widely read and studied work of shorter fiction.

I Am Already Dead: Essays on The CW's iZombie and Vertigo's iZOMBIE [Contracted with McFarland Publishers] (UPDATE)

updated: 
Monday, August 1, 2016 - 2:32pm
Ashley Szanter and Jessica K. Richards
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

Editors Szanter and Richards seek original essays for an edited collection on Rob Thomas’s television series iZombie as well as the show’s graphic novel source material, Roberson and Allred’s iZOMBIE. This particular series has begun to overhaul modern constructions of the zombie in popular culture and media. While scholarship on the television zombie is not in short supply, particularly in regards to AMC’s The Walking Dead, we believe this particular show and comic series speak to a growing trend in zombie culture whereby the zombie “passes” as human—fully assimilating into normalized society.

FOLK NARRATIVES AND CULTURES OF THE NORTHEAST

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, January 31, 2017

We are inviting submissions for a forthcoming edited volume that analyse and survey folk narratives from India’s Northeast. The eight north-eastern states—Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland, Mizoram, Tripura, Assam, Manipur and Sikkim—have a wealth of narratives that are likely to function as alternative history beyond the generic cultural and geographical assumptions of the history of the Northeast as part of a ‘greater’ Indian history. The polyphonic potential of these narratives can be explored in multiple ways including historical, literary, sociological and political, but not exclusively such.

THE FINE ART OF LYING: DISGUISE, DISSIMULATION AND COUNTERFEITING IN EARLY MODERN CULTURE

Florence, 7 April 2017

The 2017 IASEMS Graduate Conference at The British Institute of Florence is a one-day interdisciplinary forum open to PhD students and researchers who have obtained their doctorates within the past 5 years.

Dissimulation is but a faint kind of policy, or wisdom; for it asketh a strong wit, and a strong heart, to know when to tell truth, and to do it. Therefore it is the weaker sort of politics, that are the great dissemblers! (Francis Bacon, “Of Dissimulation”)
