CFP: Attending to Early Modern Women: Workshop Proposal Deadline (8/22/05; 11/9/06-11/11/06)

Karen Nelson

The deadline looms for interdisciplinary workshop proposals for
"Attending to Early Modern Women--and Men." We hope you are drafting a
proposal!

While the keynote address and plenary speakers will concentrate on what
scholars of early modern women can learn from considering men and
masculinity, workshops may consider masculinity or continue past
conversations about women and gender. Workshops should, however, focus
on one of the plenary topics themselves: theorizing gender, childhood,
violence, and pedagogies.

Proposals are due by AUGUST 22, 2005. The conference convenes in College
Park, MD, November 9-11, 2006.

The deadline for submissions for a collection of essays on the films of M. Night Shyamalan has been extended. Also, previously the CFP was for essays addressing some aspect of Evil in Shyamalan's films; however, the scope of the project has been broadened. All topics and approaches will be considered.

Inquiries as well as 400-word proposals and C.V.s should be submitted by Nov. 1, 2005 to Jason Steed at <profsteed at hotmail.com>.

The New England Saga Society is currently seeking papers for two sponsored
sessions at the 2006 41st International Congress at Kalamazoo in 2006.

Session I: The Problem of Revenge: Cultural Critiques in the Icelandic Sagas

The theme of Icelandic nationalism is undeniably important in the sagas, but
readers must not neglect the inherent cultural critiques which arise as
well. NESS will take up this discussion in a session that asks what
critiques we might find in the sagas, especially with regards to the
constant and violent feuds that erupt over Iceland's medieval landscape.

Session II: The World of Women in the Icelandic Sagas
