In 2020, the Society for the Study of Midwestern Literature celebrates its 50th year, and as its president-elect, I am organizing a panel sequence on all aspects of contemporary Midwestern literature. These papers will be presented at the annual symposium of the Society for the Study of Midwestern Literature at the Newberry Library in Chicago, IL, on May 14-16, 2020.
Videogames are a powerful storytelling medium—but what are the stories we tell about videogames, with videogames, around videogames?
While there is an extensive body of scholarship on the way that videogames create worlds, construct characters, and explore themes, there has been almost no scholarship on the representation of videogames in literary texts.
We are soliciting proposals for papers to fill out a panel tentatively titled “Cultural histories of Children’s Bodies” for the 18th annual meeting of the Cultural Studies Association which will convene in Chicago on May 28-30th, 2020. If interested, please email an abstract to email@example.com by Dec 5th.
