deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 12, 2024

Structurally, the book will be divided into themes that correspond to the most relevant aspects of the movie and the flexibility of our contributions. Following a “mixtape” model, this edited collection may present sections on episodes, keywords, geography, and intertextuality. Potential contributors are invited to consider their distinct vantage point on American Fiction  in a granular (episodic) or holistic (style) approach. Our model is supported by other book-length projects on television series highlighting that our interdisciplinary approach is valuable.

Sunday, April 7, 2024

Moving from silence into speech is for the oppressed, the colonized, the exploited, and those who stand and struggle side by side, a gesture of defiance that heals, that makes new life, and new growth possible. It is that act of speech, of “talking back” that is no mere gesture of empty words, that is the expression of moving from object to subject, that is the liberated voice.’

Code as ConversationTransmedia Dialogues Around Critical Code Studies 

University of Cambridge, Saturday 1 June, 2024

‘Hello World!’ is how all computer programmers begin, and it’s how Mark C. Marino opens his manifesto for critical code studies. This elementary exercise in coding, accompanied by the instruction PRINT, demonstrates that “code exists not for machines but for humans who need to communicate with the machine and with other humans.” The code we write enables us to interface with the machine, sitting somewhere between human language and the calculations performed by the computer.
