Please submit papers for a panel on Literature and Photography at the
upcoming Modern Language Association (North East) conference in
Philadelphia, March 2-5 2006.This panel will explore how American
writers have responded to photography: authors have explored word as
camera and image as pen, and we'll discuss the camera-eye aesthetic in
American fiction. Possible points for departure might be:

How has photography impacted the novel's position as history and
writers' philosophies of history, and what did writers do about their
senses of the past, approaches to time, and philosophies of history, in
the light of photography?

For an upcoming issue of the journal Radical History Review that focuses on religion and politics, we invite authors to write and submit short articles or essays (12-18 pages, double-spaced) to be published in a special forum exploring the theme "Converted Spaces." We envision the forum to include 3-5 pieces that explore the following questions:

How do physical spaces (buildings, streets, shrines, natural landscapes) function as sites of contestation among competing religious groups? How do such sites accommodate multiple religious faiths?

Fishing the Angles: New Writing about Fly Fishing (10/10/2005;
collection)
 
As fly fishing drifts downstream into the 21st century, anglers are
faced with overcrowded streams and lakes, declining water quality, and
political and cultural marginalization. In spite of this, we fish.
Why? What do we get out if it? This proposed collection, *Fishing the
Angles: New Writing about Fly Fishing*, is looking for works that
capture the meaning and magic(or the lack of meaning and magic) of fly
fishing, works that explore, transgress, and subvert this most literary
of "Outdoor Sports." Tell us-show us-what fly fishing means and how it
works.
