Located at the edge of Vancouver’s city limits, the University of British Columbia is perched on the edge of an ocean. Down an interminable set of winding stairs is Wreck Beach, and with a few more steps you are submerged in the saltwater of the sea. As a West Coast school, the possibility of submersion is always waiting at our door. What does this mean in a time of climate catastrophe and imminent sea level rise? How do we navigate relationships to the ocean, to submersion, and drowning in these chaotic times?  Submersion evokes the existence of multiple, nuanced truths and interpretations.

VISAWUS 2020: Victorian Transitions

Reno, NV October 15-17, 2020

The Victorian Era was one of transitions. Victorian Britain transitioned from a rural to urban society. It transitioned from an emergent empire to the dominant imperial power. It transitioned from a walking, water, wind, and animal-based transportation system to a steam-powered transportation system. It transitioned from a regional to national and then imperial culture.

Hope Mirrlees’s Paris: A Poem at 100

updated: 
Monday, January 20, 2020 - 9:22pm
University of Liverpool / Sorbonne Nouvelle / Boston College
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, February 15, 2020

2020 marks the 100th anniversary of “modernism’s lost masterpiece,” Hope Mirrlees’s Paris: A Poem. Published by Hogarth Press in the spring of 1920, and typeset by Virginia Woolf herself, this ground-breaking long poem maps the range of continental avant-garde aesthetics of the 1910s even as it both engages and anticipates the mythical methods and epic conventions of James Joyce, Ezra Pound, and T.S. Eliot.

Call for Abstracts - Edited Collection on Father Figures in Animated/Cartoon TV Shows for Mature Audiences


 “The handy thing about being a father is that the historic standard is so pitifully low.”

- Michael Chabon, Pulitzer Prize Winner


 

The trope of the “hapless dad,” clumsy and useless with his own children, appears in storytelling across several mediums—especially in animated cartoons on TV. For many contemporary cartoon shows for adult audiences, however, this trope appears especially pronounced, often leaning into the stereotype that competent childrearing is "women's work" for the benefit of comedy.
