Contributions are sought for an interdisciplinary collection of essays on the Hallmark television channels to be published by McFarland & Co. We are interested in a sustained exploration of the television channel and brand as a cultural phenomenon. At the end of 2017, The Washington Postpublished an article entitled “We can’t take any more of 2017, so we’ve turned to the Hallmark Channel in desperation.” The article described men and women – but mostly women – engaging in a particular brand of escapism from the seemingly daily barrage of bad news: watching Hallmark Channel original movies.

This special issue will focus on ideas of reuse and recombination. How were bits and scraps of materials, textual and otherwise, reassembled into new forms in the nineteenth century? To what ends? Essays might consider these issues in relation to images, fabrics, texts, and more. Possible topics could include scrapbooks, patchwork, quotation, citation, illustration, and any and all forms of recombination. Approaches from all disciplines, including literature, art history, history, music, and the history of science and the social sciences, are welcome, as are submissions that cross national boundaries and/or range across the nineteenth century.

SOUTH ATLANTIC MODERN LANGUAGE ASSOCIATION

This panel invites submissions that think about the way women writers and artists nationally and globally have confronted the political and legal regulation of women’s bodies, and the way the body itself can subsequently become an important site of socio-political resistance. Paper proposals may consider (but are not limited to) regulatory measures in the areas of reproduction, sexual expression, beauty culture, body modification/transformation, and miscegenation/relational body politics.
Proposals focusing on transnational, multiethnic, and multicultural women writers and artists are especially welcome.
Nineteenth-Century Workshop 2018
War / After War: Memory, Fear, Indifference
Rutgers University; New Brunswick, NJ
War as memory. The fear of war. War as experience. How does culture mark its relationship to organized violent conflict?
In 2018, Rutgers’ Nineteenth Century Workshop will address the long-lasting effects of war on nineteenth-century literature and culture. It is a topic we take to be both urgent and of particular scholarly interest to students of the era.
