Topic and Title: Cultivating Spheres: Agriculture, Technical Communication, and the Publics  

Editors Adrienne Lamberti and Lee Tesdell solicit new contributions for a collection that explores the question, "Where is technical communication currently living within public spheres, specifically regarding agricultural issues that invoke both the digital humanities and social sciences?"  

The interdisciplinary nature of the collection will focus on topics emerging from contemporary collaborations among digital humanities and social science disciplines—in particular, how best practices in technical communication shape and direct the look of these topics they are debated in public spheres.

The Fairy Tales Area of the Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association seeks paper presentations on any topic involving fairy tales. While our interests are broad and inclusive, we invite papers that discuss fairy tales in contemporary popular culture (TV shows, movies, graphic novels, advertising, toys, video games, popular literature, etc), revisions and adaptations of fairy tales (including creative projects, such as poems, short fiction, TV shows), and approaches that consider the subversive nature of the fairy tale (such as subverted family values, queering the fairy tale, etc.).

NeMLA 2017: Speculative Horror: Ontologies of the Real

Tuesday, September 6, 2016 - 1:44pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

The dominant methodologies for engaging with horror fiction and cinema are often limited by a reliance on interpretation and critique, and by a linguistic constructivist frame that has barred any serious discussion of “the real” within this genre as an ontological possibility. In other words, most current methods for reading horror reduce its elements to mere symbols or signifiers of broader, more abstract notions of the social, the political, the psychological, or the linguistic. This panel, therefore, seeks to explore the possibilities of theoretical engagement with horror fiction in this post-linguistic and post-critique era of realism, materialism, and the nonhuman.

Forming Place, Placing Form

Place—as both geographical locale demarcated by boundaries, and as a site of experience naturalized through ideological functions—has been transformed by as well as articulated through artistic practices. Place in cultural texts is codetermined by locatedness and agency. And it is when land as the reserve of identity is threatened by colonial and neo-colonial extensions of empire, transportational foreshortening of distances, and technocratic domination of ethnicities, for example, that place finds reciprocal formal expression in modes such as collage, montage, prosodic experimentations, and narrative hybridity. Such representational practices stand as testimony to the experience of place as the very possibility of movement.
