CFP Fairy Tale Adaptations (5/15/14; PAMLA 10/31-11/2/14)

With apologies for cross-posting:

Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association
112th Annual Conference - Riverside Convention Center, California
Friday, October 31 - Sunday, November 2, 2014

Once Upon a Time

Presiding Officer:
Elena Polyudova, Russian Institute for Art Education Studies

This session focuses on modern TV shows, movies, and books based on fairy tales and myths. On the one hand, these productions utilize well-known magical plots. On the other hand, they create new cultural and psychological patterns according to modern interpretations. The session offers the opportunity to analyze the phenomenon of modern experimentation from different perspectives: narrative changes in the plots; correlation between famous plots and modern contexts; psychological interpretations of the characters; modern visions of old stories expressed in costumes and scenery; linguistic analyses of scripts and texts.

Friday, October 31 - Sunday, November 2, 2014

Rethinking/Retheorizing Video Games

Presiding Officer:
Daniel Ante-Contreras, "University of California, Riverside"

Video games are ripe for cultural, literary, and game studies, but the fraught relationship they have had with the academy and internal debates, like that between ludologists and narratologists, has hampered their potential. This panel invites papers that wish to take up these methodologies to analyze video games in general, specific games, or uses of virtual reality as a metaphor in popular culture in relation to textual, pedagogical and institutional potentialities. Papers that focus on issues of gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, environment, disability, transhistorical concepts of gaming/virtual reality, etc. are welcomed and encouraged.

Disney and Its Worlds

Presiding Officer:
Jeremiah Axelrod, Occidental College

From the Frankfurt School to contemporary cultural studies, the social ramifications of Disney movies and theme parks, and their cultural penumbra, have long provided rich terrain for critical scholarly analysis. This panel explores the discursive, literary, filmic, and historical dimensions of the Disney phenomenon in both the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Papers that draw upon the rich canon of scholarship on Disney and engage with its cultural effects through critical theory, spatial or historical analysis, Feminist methodologies, or close reading strategies are particularly encouraged.
