CFP: 16th Annual International Conference on Virginia Woolf 2006,
Birmingham, UK (1.4.06; 6/22/06 - 6/25/06)

This conference takes Virginia Woolf to Britain's second city in order
to explore her work from perspectives 'beyond the boundary' of her own
positions and attitudes. Her coolness towards the provinces and
'prejudice' against the regional novel (Letters 6. 381) are thus the
starting-point for considering her writing in the light of its own
'limits', self-declared and otherwise. Themes for papers may involve

Medieval Disability: The body beyond the margins (Leeds, July 10-13th 2006).
 
Disability Studies, a field of inquiry rooted in disciplines as diverse as archaeology, history, literary studies and queer theory, has increasingly called for an intensified exanination of the history of disability: how it was perceived, what constituted "able-bodiedness" in different eras, the moral ramifications of disability, the growth of the culture of pity, etc. Medievalists have been slow to answer this call, despite the period's centrality in the formation of modern identities.

MP feminist peer-reviewed biannual e-journal is seeking papers on the
subject of "CHOICE". The word choice has been used as a galvanizing point
concerning abortion, but the concept of the right to choose extends well
beyond the womb. Feminists argue over the kinds of choices we make...the
choice to be a stay at home mother or have a consuming career, the choice to
 marry or not to marry, the choice to be celibate or to be sexually
promiscuous, the choice to agree or disagree with feminist "party lines",
etc. We are seeking academic papers, personal narratives, creative writing,
or journalistic writings that wrestle with the idea of gender and choice in
