 CALL FOR PAPERS

3rd-4th November 2017
Queen Mary, University of London

‘FOR ME, THERE IS NO GAP BETWEEN MY PAINTING AND MY SO-CALLED ‘DECORATIVE’ WORK. I NEVER CONSIDERED THE ‘MINOR ARTS’ TO BE ARTISTICALLY FRUSTRATING; ON THE CONTRARY, IT WAS AN EXTENSION OF MY ART.’

    SONIA DELAUNAY

Decorating Dissidence takes an interdisciplinary and intersectional approach to the work of female artists, designers, and writers to reassess the place of domestic art, craft, and the decorative in modernism.

In the last five years or so, rhetoric and composition scholarship has offered work that brings digital media and bodies to the forefront to shape pedagogical praxis, illuminate cultural practices, and extend composition studies (into writing studies). Yet, much of this scholarship remains focused on the rhetorical construction of embodiment, as indicated by several recent journal special issues: Perspectives and Definitions of Digital Rhetoric (Enculturation 23 2016), Wearable Rhetorics: Bodies, Cities, Collectives (Rhetoric Society Quarterly 46.3 2016), Embodied and Affective Rhetorics (Present Tense 6.1 2016), Embodied Sound (Kairos 21.1 2016), and Sexing Colorlines: Black Sexualities, Popular Culture, and Cultural Production (Poroi 7.2 2011).

As the bicentennial of the publication of the early Gothic’s masterpiece, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, 2018 is
an ideal time to reconsider how we understand the aesthetic qualities, ideological underpinnings, historical
development, and cultural work of Gothic literature. Derided as juvenile or worse through most of the
nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the Gothic has enjoyed a resurgence in interest among scholars in recent
decades—and of course, it has never lost the interest of popular audiences. This panel seeks papers from
scholars of literature, history, art history, religion, science and technology studies, and other fields which break

Call for Proposals: Refocus: The Films of Paul Leni

Erica Tortolani and Marty Norden, University of Massachusetts Amherst

Sunday, October 1, 2017

Described by Siegfried Kracauer as one of the outstanding film directors of the post-World War I era, Paul Leni (1885-1929) is a significant yet overlooked figure in the German and US cinemas of the silent period. A frequent collaborator with stage director Max Reinhardt, Leni worked as an art designer for some of the most prominent German directors of the time before coming into his own as a director. Creating both avant-garde and commercial films in Germany, Leni quickly became known for his captivatingly macabre productions. Critics and audiences alike praised these films, which were marked by elaborate set designs, innovative use of light and shadow, and adept storytelling abilities.

CFP for SCMS 2018: Consent Puzzles: Narratives and Media Debates on Sexual Consent

In many ways, consent is considered a prerequisite to ethical interactions. A nonconsensual act is viewed as an affront, a violation, an oppression. As David Archard in Sexual Consent notes, the distinction between sexual consent and nonconsent marks “the difference between the permissibility and impermissibility of some practice or activity.”

Yet the notion of consent resists both simplistic definition and straightforward interpretation. “Consent is a contractual notion,” Michel Foucault states in an interview in Politics, Philosophy, Culture, and, thus, he purposefully pinpoints a core problem with consent: individuals in everyday interactions regularly obtain and give consent without explicit written or verbal contracts.

NeMLA 2018: Writers in Hollywood: Film and Imagined Communities of the Literary. In the 20th C, writers like Raymond Chandler, William Faulkner, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Dorothy Parker, and Nathanael West went to Hollywood. As Chandler put it, they encountered a new industry of the literary where “little of worth their talent is allowed to achieve”. This session invites papers that explore colliding writing cultures, notions of the literary, adaptation, and movement across genre as writers successful in the novel, short story, essay, poem, etc. moved to screenplay, often a collaborative form, and to the “Hollywood system”.
