Theorising the Popular Conference 2017

Liverpool Hope University, June 21st-22nd 2017

The Popular Culture Research Group at Liverpool Hope University is delighted to announce its seventh annual international conference, ‘Theorising the Popular’. Building on the success of previous years, the 2017 conference aims to highlight the intellectual originality, depth and breadth of ‘popular’ disciplines, as well as their academic relationship with and within ‘traditional’ subjects. One of its chief goals will be to generate debate that challenges academic hierarchies and cuts across disciplinary barriers.

MLA 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

Works of literature, the visual arts, drama, dance, and music have long been addressed to readers, viewers, and listeners, both real and imagined. Whether implicit or explicit, the ways artists address, court, and affect their audiences are crucial to understanding their work. But while traditional ideas about audience often denote passive reception or disinterested judgment, certain artistic forms recast the observer as an active participant and/or collaborator in the construction of the art object’s meaning.

Submissions are sought for a multi-disciplinary anthology about the role of female figures in dystopian narratives.  Thomas More’s coined term of “utopia” seems to be a Latin pun: it is used in the sense of eu-topia, a "good place" or "ideal society," which More claimed was his intended sense, but the spelling of u-topia means "nowhere" and is often taken to suggest that eutopia is impossible, as well as, nonexistent.

The Edith Wharton Review
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, August 1, 2017

We invite papers exploring any aspect of religion, spirituality, and the sacred in Wharton’s work, including the afterlives of religion in gothic, aestheticism, or satire. How does Wharton conceptualize belief, spirituality, or religious tradition within modernity? What place does the sacred have in her writing, and where are the sacred spaces in her work? Are there distinctive features to Wharton’s discussions of religious architecture or sacred art? What interactions take place between Wharton’s fiction and the Bible, or religious texts and genres? How does Wharton’s anthropological eye address religious movements, practices, or characters?
