Thursday, February 15, 2018

The Department of English at St. John's University invites papers that think about narrative across literary and writing studies. Our topic for this year's graduate conference, "Telling Stories: Rethinking Narrative in Literary and Writing Studies," asks us to conside what is entailed in generating narrative(s). We seek work that explores the cultural place of stories and their various modes of telling--through drama, poetry, prose forms, performance, digital media, translation--as well as the role of narrative in pedagogy and writing studies, in any historical, national, or diasporic tradition.

2nd Global Conference: Music &... Nationalism
29th to 30th June 2018
Palermo, Italy

The spectre of national anthems being sung at mass events, political rallies and the use of pop music and established musicians providing endorsements at political rallies suggest that the relationship between music and the spirit nationalism is as strong as it has been since its emergence as a feature of 19th century romantic music. This conference aims to bring together interdisciplinary research perspectives on the relationship between music and nationalism.

The so-called “Golden Age” of American science fiction coincided with the mythologizing of the American home in the two decades following WW II as an idealized site for the realization of a certain conception of “American values.”  While science fiction might seem an unlikely genre in which to explore and question ideas of domesticity, much science fiction in and since the 1950s has done just that.

Nigerian print and electronic media were beset by a revenue crisis in the late 1980s and early 1990s. In the context of structural adjustment of the country’s economy, the so-called Fourth Estate became a victim of its own success when its century-long visionary pursuit of democracy and social justice could no longer be sustained by old expectations based on circulation and advertisement. That apparent economic crisis was exacerbated by political problems arising from draconian military practices of rule, censorship, direct intimidation, and the corruption or cooptation of media ethics.

Recently, there has been an increase in mistrust regarding the political establishment. Forms of expressing this disconformity have been at the centre of public and academic discussion. Countercultures, as attempts to find an alternative to social conformity, are central to these expressions of dissent. Books like Angela Nagle’s Kill All Normies: Online culture wars from 4chan and Tumblr to Trump and the alt-right (2017) highlight the resurgence of youth subcultures in the last decade. Correspondingly, counterculture movements on both sides of the political divide have seen their numbers multiplied.

Special Issue on “Data Journalism - Practice, Problems and Pedagogy” (Volume 28, Issue 1, June 2018)

Guest Editor: Kayt Davies Head of the Journalism Program, Edith Cowan University, Perth, Western Australia

Data journalism is blazing new trails through the media landscape, tackling big issues, illuminating social patterns and exposing connections, but doing it requires skills additional to the usual journalistic canon.

How are journalists finding ways to interrogate and present data stories? How are educators rising to the challenge of teaching data journalism skills? This special issue of Asia Pacific Media Educator aims to document the new ideas and approaches being embraced by journalists and educators.
