The world has entered into the age of universal economic crisis. In this second decade of the twenty-first century, the long shadow of economic downturn and instability looms over not only traditionally underdeveloped countries and regions, but the superpowers of global economy, such as the US, the EU, and China. At the time when economy is at once a global priority and the source of worldwide anxiety, fear, and uncertainty, and when economic crisis seems to accelerate the crisis of humanities and higher education, the ELLAK will organize an international forum to reconfigure the interface of literature and economy and redefine the social parameters of literary studies.

NEMLA 2017 panel CFP--Literature, writing, and the Promise of the Public Humanities--Many humanists seize on the “public humanities” to address the public relevance of the humanities in general. Public humanities programs offer students experiential learning that will lead to a deeper knowledge of both their world and their subject matter. For educators, public work promises to “make a difference,” by having humanities learning engage directly with public needs. For departments, the public humanities offer a justification for their fields in an era of declining resources and public interest.

Since the turn of the twenty-first century, few conditions have had such a profound impact on the public imagination as dementia. As Swinnen and Schweda’s recent edited collection showed, dementia is no longer the sole province of biomedical discourse, but has thoroughly penetrated the cultural sphere, finding popular representation in literature, film, theatre and television. Correspondingly, a growing research culture is emerging that explores, interrogates, and evaluates the ways in which Alzheimer’s Disease and other forms of dementia are being harnessed for diverse symbolic, aesthetic, and narrative purposes.

CFP: Celebrating Star Trek's 50th Anniversary

When Star Trek debuted on NBC on September 8, 1966, there was little indication that its longevity across multiple platforms (films, series, books) would rival that of series such as Doctor Who, or that the series (and its fans) would become fixtures of popular culture, objects of academic study, and an outsized influence on science fiction.

 

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the hit franchise, and celebrations of its cultural impact have been as varied as the show’s own incarnations.
