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?

critical essays or personally appreciative accounts that deal with the
history of any particular, & particularly influential, literary journal.

the journal & its most lasting effects.

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.

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
Woolf and:
