This year, I am accepting paper proposals for several panels on early modern literature to be delivered at the Thirty-Seventh Annual CEA Conference on Reading the Regions / Writing the Regions / Teaching the Regions to be held from 6-8 April 2006.
 
Papers are especially welcome that deal with ways in which early modern writers dismantled, elaborated, heightened, or constructed ideas of regional identity. Topics that are particularly welcome might address:
intersections between gendered self-fashioning and regional identity
imagined regions (utopias, fantasies, romances)
liminal regions
ecocritical perspectives on place and region
geography and identity
domestic "regions"

UPDATE: The Contractual Imperative in 18th Century Britain (9/15/05; ASECS, 3/30/06-4/2/06)

Perhaps "imperative" seems too insistent a term to describe the spread of
contractual logic and rhetoric in the English 18th century; yet, the "will
to influence the behavior of another" is evident in 18th century
periodicals, conduct manuals and novels. Are there terms that better
describe this phenomena, or analyses that better illuminate it?

H_NGM_N, an online journal of poetry & poetics, is currently looking for
critical essays or personally appreciative accounts that deal with the
history of any particular, & particularly influential, literary journal.

Essays can confine their scope to particular runs of the given journal
(year or years, volume #, editor) but should include appropriate
historical background as well as an articulation of the aesthetics of
the journal & its most lasting effects.

Please query the editor with the title of the journal you're interested
in as well as a brief description of what you hope to isolate in the
piece.

Adaptation: The State of the Field, Call for Papers

 

For the 2006 Popular Culture Association (PCA)/American Culture Association (ACA) conference in Atlanta, Georgia, at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis, from April 12th to April 15th.

 

Adaptation: The State of the Field

 

It's likely that both literature and film owe a great deal more to the notion of adaptation than practitioners of either discipline are likely to admit. Bakhtin suggested that "European novel prose is born and shaped in the process of a free (that is reformulating) translation of others' works." Literary prose, and perhaps the very idea of literature, he suggests, was developed in an act of adaptation.
