Call for Papers
Date: 
March 31, 2018
Location: 
Illinois, United States
Subject Fields: 
Communication, Cultural History / Studies, Linguistics, Literature, Popular Culture Studies

The field of comics studies is relatively young, but is quickly growing.  To that end, this panel discusses the translation and adaptation of comics and other graphic narratives with an emphasis on transnational and digital contexts.  What is the ultimate goal of bringing a comic into a new cultural context or new medium?  What is the value of fidelity in translations and adaptations, and what efforts are undertaken to retain the meaning of the source text?

Possible topics include, but are not limited to...

Victorian/Edwardian Adventure Fiction and Social Change

Location: 
Alabama, United States
Subject Fields: 
Humanities, Literature, Teaching and Learning, Childhood and Education, British History / Studies

This panel for the South Atlantic Modern Language Association (SAMLA) Conference welcomes submissions that explore how popular adventure fiction/boy’s books of the long nineteenth century were used as agents of social change. While often viewed as works for adolescents, such novels played subversive roles in dismantling traditional ideas and establishing new cultural norms. We are especially interested in papers that explore novels set in locations outside the colonial center that worked to challenge British assumptions about education/the educational system.

Our conference seeks to do that with a Media Studies approach that puts the emphasis on netretaining media, entwines the technological, social and aesthetic, and acknowledges the importance of everyday practices by non-elite actors.

51 years after Star Trek: The Original Series first aired on U.S. American TV, Star Trek: Discovery is updating the franchise for the 21st century. Like TOS was in the 60s, Discovery is firmly rooted in the zeitgeist and current political climate—a fact that has led to surprising amount of backlash from some corners of the fandom.
