We would like to present a call for papers for the following two sessions on medievalism and the modern Middle Ages for the 2018 Medieval Congress at Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo, MI:
1. “Can These Bones Come To Life?” 1: Authenticity in Re-construction, Re-enactment, and Re-creation
Close-Up Call for Submissions
In affirming the continuing presence and influence of that musico-political vital force known as Fela Anikulapo Kuti, we need to acknowledge the fact that African music itself has become a problematic category in an age of galloping globalization. Nowadays, we find African music everywhere and we also find everything in African music. This is not just a question of mere definition or recognition, or a question of genres and sociological utilities.
The Literature and Madness section of the Popular Culture Association is soliciting 15-20 minute papers for the upcoming year’s annual PCA/ACA conference in Indianapolis, IN, scheduled for 28-31 March 2018. The deadline for abstract submission is 1 October 2017.

In his book Media Transformations Lars Elleström asks two questions that intermediality studies seek to answer. First, “How can different types of media be understood, analyzed, and compared in terms of the combination and integration of fundamental media traits?” And second, “How can transfer and transformation of media characteristic be comprehended and described adequately?” To these questions, this panel will add a third: how can the combination and transformation of media traits contribute to the development of new artistic and cultural practices?
