Sunday, September 30, 2018

RuPaul’s Drag Race has steadily increased its audience share and jumpstarted the careers of dozens of drag performers. It’s not simply a contest to be declared “America’s Next Drag Superstar,” but a platform for each queen to shape their brand, promote different forms drag, and start conversations on a number of cultural questions (i.e. gender, race, and identity). This panel seeks paper that considers how the show has educated audiences on drag, beauty, race, and gender through its successes and failures.

The conference is through the Northeast Modern Language Association and will take place March 21-24th, 2019 in Washington, D.C.

Submissions are due: September 30, 2018

Evolving Women in Film

Tuesday, July 17, 2018 - 11:01am
Northeast MLA 2019 Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

Open discussion of how women are portrayed in film should examine how those portrayals evolve over time to reflect changing cultural values. Women have fulfilled roles that exhibit their historically subservient or sexualized positions in society, among others. Over the decades the gender identity of women has fluctuated to include powerful women, emotionally strong women, lesbian women, and even neurologically atypical women. These identities reflect the expanding possibilities that society recognizes as more likely and more mainstream.

The Emotional Life of Horror Films (SCMS panel)

updated: 
Tuesday, July 17, 2018 - 10:59am
University of California, Berkeley
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, August 7, 2018

For all the research that has been conducted into the ideological underpinnings of horror, ideology is not ultimately constitutive of the genre. Emotions are, as producers and fans well know. Yet there has been scant scholarly attention given to emotions (or affects) as such in the genre. Whether the defining generic emotion is taken to be art-horror (Carroll), a feeling of threat (Aldana Reyes), or a looser family of reactions like fear and suspense and disgust (Schneider), there is no escaping emotions.

-       Hair, makeup, or fashion (especially within the film or television industry)

-       Performances and acting styles of other actors or actresses

-       The emergence of independent production and free-agent stars

-       The definitions of feminism and female sexuality

-       The nature of gossip reporting

-       Genre films (musicals, comedies, biopics)

Teaching Palahniuk in the Age of Trump

Since Fight Club earned Chuck Palahniuk notoriety, critical praise and derision and a committed cult following on the heels of the 1996 novel publication and 1999's David Fincher film adaptation starring Brad Pitt, Edward Norton, Helena Bonham-Carter and Jared Leto, the author and his work have struggled to find critical legitimacy. His reputation, especially at public readings, has been built upon accentuating all the ways grotesque horror can become comically absurd.

Superheroes and the Immigrant Experience (NeMLA 2019)

Monday, July 16, 2018 - 9:46am
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

The superhero-as-outsider has been a narrative told for decades since Superman’s parents sent him on a rocket from Krypton to Earth. The immigration narrative is closely aligned with extraterrestrial heroes, including refugees such as the Martian Manhunter and Icon. Yet a superhero does not have to be from another planet to experience the process of immigration: in just X-Men, Charles Xavier, Deadpool, Nightcrawler, Colossus, and Storm all work outside their nations of birth, and Magneto forms Genosha as an international sanctuary for mutants persecuted by their governments. Recent films such as Thor: Ragnarok and Black Panther examine the challenges of being forced out of one’s home and taking on the role of an exile.
