Merwin Studies

Merwin Studies seeks to organize a panel at the ASLE Biennial Conference—Notes From Underground: The Depths of Environmental Arts, Culture, and Justice—in Moscow, Idaho, June 23–27, 2015.

The conference theme invites us to consider how looking "down, under, beneath and below" can lead to "imaginative, aesthetic, critical, pedagogical, and activist responses."

Many of the suggested topics readily resonate with Merwin's ecopoetics including geological time, soil biopolitics, gardening, roots, reclaiming, insects, witness, mycorrhizal networks, migrations, poetics of darkness (roots, mud, night), and grassroots politics and cultures.

Duquesne University English Graduate Organization

Inspired by our era of globalization and instantaneous communication, the Duquesne University English Department Graduate Student Conference is asking about access. As the rise of Disability Studies and Mobility Studies has provided theoretical and linguistic frameworks for defining, explaining, and challenging traditional conceptions of access, we invite considerations that historicize the concept of access and probe its contemporary resonance. Historically, who has had access? How does asking this question raise awareness of contentious spaces? How do we navigate such spaces without privileging able-bodiedness?

"Rebecca West and Dissent: The Politics and Poetics of Heresy"

Rebecca West famously did not toe lines, whether these lines were associated with party, ideology, literary movement, genre, gender, religious beliefs, etc. In most cases, from her leftist anti-communism, to her bourgeois leftism, to her paradoxical feminism, to her anti-atonement Christianity, to her genre-bending, West was a dissenter, a rebel, and a heretic—even within movements that were already oppositional such as feminism.

Women Writing North: ACCUTE 2015 *Deadline Extended*

updated: 
Tuesday, November 4, 2014 - 10:23am
ACCUTE

It is common to conceive of Canada's North, especially in its early history, as a barren frontier conquerable only by the hardiest of men. However, as Barbara Kelcey's Alone in Silence: European Women in the Canadian North Before 1940 outlines, an estimated five hundred women or more traversed the Northwest Territories before World War II. While some of these women were the wives of missionaries or explorers, others were career-women in their own rights—artists, nurses, missionaries, entrepreneurs, or explorers.

Call for Responses for Front Page Survey Question on Technoculture

Tuesday, November 4, 2014 - 9:33am
MediaCommons

The MediaCommons Front Page Collective welcomes responses to the survey question: How does the lens of technoculture shade our perceptions of ourselves and society?

This survey question seeks to explore how the prevalence of technology in our lives has shaped the ways in which we approach not only communication, but also representations of the fractured nature of our identities. Some questions that arise may include: How are our experiences with other cultures filtered through topics like Techno-Orientalism? How do works of science fiction invite us to consider cultural issues in new ways? What new affordances do mobile devices give us? How do mobile devices constrain the domain of self-expression?

The North American Review Bicentennial Creative Writing and Literature Conference, University of Northern Iowa

In its first year of publication, the North American Review decried the new nation's "literary delinquency" and called for the development of a distinctly American literature. In the early decades of the journal's existence, historical novels were a central form in which writers and critics looked for explicitly American subject matter and themes. As W.H.

The Value and Challenge of the Middle Ages in C.S. Lewis' The Discarded Image Half a Century Later, CFP Deadline: 20 December

updated: 
Monday, November 3, 2014 - 5:59pm
Paper Session for the Third Annual Symposium on Medieval and Renaissance Studies, Saint Louis University

It has been about half a century since C.S. Lewis' The Discarded Image was published (1964), and the time seems ripe to look into its legacy, past and ongoing. With the constantly shifting critical landscape in medieval studies, especially the recent rise in new critical perspectives (e.g. disability studies, theories of the monstrous, etc.), a past work of medieval scholarship such as Lewis' can seem like a product of its own time more than a seminal advance in medieval studies. One wonders, though, to what extent knowing about such a work may be useful at all in the ever changing, advancing field of medieval studies.

Call for Roundtable Participants: Staging Equity: Actualization or Appropriation?

updated: 
Monday, November 3, 2014 - 2:42pm
Laine Zisman Newman & Rebecca Burton / CATR Conference Roundtable

A 2013/14 Theatre Production Survey conducted by Playwrights Guild of Canada revealed a distressing regression in gender parity in Canadian theatre. Although women comprise more than half of PGC's membership, the survey found that they did not account for even 25% of the professional productions staged in Canada last year. While these statistics demonstrate a need for more equitable practices in the arts, prioritizing equity is by no means a simplistic endeavor. As Sarah Ahmed notes in On Being Included: Racism and Diversity in Institutional Life (2012), equity and diversity can also be deployed as cultural capital.

SOPHIE HANNAH Author of The Monogram Murders

Author of over eighty mystery novels, Agatha Christie was the best-selling writer of the twentieth century. Her detectives Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple are iconic and her play The Mousetrap is the longest-running in history.

Since her death in 1976, Christie's popularity has only increased, and her legacy has been interpreted in various, sometimes surprising new ways. In addition, new perspectives on the Queen of Crime's life and work have opened up. As her grandson, Mathew Prichard, said in 2014, 'Agatha Christie is so much more than an author.'
