Adaptation studies has recently grown into a vibrant, wide-ranging field of study. Scholars in literary, media, and cultural studies have used the concepts of adaptation and intertextuality to explore how content negotiates the transition from text to image, image to text, and across media platforms and/or cultures of production and reception.

Call for Papers--Book on Mad Magazine

Call for papers for a book on Mad magazine. We are looking for scholarly examinations of the magazine, its humor, its artists, its cultural and political impact, and its influence. The book is under consideration by a major university press, and will expand what was covered in a recent special issue of Studies in American Humor. Here is the link to the contents of that issue: http://www.jstor.org/stable/10.5325/studamerhumor.issue-30

Congress for the Humanities and Social Sciences 2015


Submitted by syntaxfactory on May 31, 2015 - 5:23pm


It is difficult to explain why I love this conference so much. The Congress for the Humanities and Social Sciences (http://congress2015.ca/) is the work of the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences (http://www.ideas-idees.ca/), a federally funded Canadian organization which aggregates dozens of small Canadian scholarly societies to meet together.

For my purposes, I meet with the Canadian Association for the Study of Discourse and Writing and the Canadian Society for the Study of Rhetoric.
