Parallel Universes: Remaking Superheroes in Film and Popular Media

Wednesday, April 24, 2019 - 11:12am
Dr Lorna Piatti-Farnell
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 7, 2019

Twenty-first century film and media have seen a rise not only in remakes and ‘re-imaginings’, but also in transmedia adaptations, works based in nostalgic callbacks, fan-written versions of media, and genre-bending remixes. While a wider body of work exists on transmedia storytelling and adaptation, contemporary superhero remakes and re-adaptations are still a largely unexplored subject, even as interest in the remake phenomenon continues to grow. The history of superheroes – and their supervillain counterparts – is rich in re-adaptations and remakes. This process seems intrinsic to the superhero’s textual and cultural journey, as it is re-shaped and re-moulded, from comics to film and other media forms.

Joseph Conrad and Ethics - Edited volume

Wednesday, April 24, 2019 - 11:11am
Amar Acheraiou & Laetitia Cremona
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, July 1, 2019

Joseph Conrad and Ethics seeks essays (6000 to 8000 words) that deal with ethics in Conrad’s fiction. 

Since Aristotle's Ethics and Plato’s The Republic, ethics has been a fundamental concern throughout European intellectual history. Over the last three decades, in particular, there has been a growing interest in ethics in the social sciences and humanities, inspired by Emmanuel Levinas, Jacques Derrida, and Jürgen Habermas, to name a few. Ethics is central to Joseph Conrad’s works. It is conveyed both through his thematic concerns and narrative techniques. However, this prominent topic has not yet received the attention it deserves.

November 15-17, 2019 – Atlanta, GA EXTENDED DEADLINE!

Eudora Welty used dialect in her stories to reproduce the full performance of power and identity associated with language. Of her early stories, Welty herself said in 1982, "I love to write dialogue but it’s very hard to prune it and make it sharp and make it advance the plot and reveal the characters—both characters—the one listening and the one talking."

Coming of age and identity quests are often intertwined in stories, be it in novels, comics, or films. However, not every identity quest happens to teenagers. Adults, too, are on a constant search for who they are and/ or why they are. These questions are tackled and examined in the 2019 Netflix TV show Umbrella Academy as well as in the eponymous comic books series from 2008/2009. The comic series consist of 3 volumes, “Apocalypse Suite,” “Dallas,” and “Hotel Oblivion.”
