UPDATE: Reading Rocky Horror (no deadline noted; edited collection)

Jeffrey Weinstock

Although the announced deadline for submissions for the _Reading Rocky
Horror: The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Popular Culture_ edited collection
project has passed, I will still consider additional submissions.

The initial cfp netted a fine group of essays, but one too narrowly focused
on issues of spectatorship or gender. I will still consider essays on those
topics, but am most interested in submissions that tackle the film, its
cult, and its influence from other perspectives.

If you are interested in developing an essay, please contact me at
<Jeffrey.Weinstock_at_cmich.edu> or (989) 774-3101.

Composing and Revising the Professional/Technical Writing Program

New deadline: March 1, 2004

As Professional and Technical Writing grows at the undergraduate level from
a narrow pre-professional track to a discipline, complete with its own
undergraduate degree and certificate programs, faculty administrators often
seek grounded and detailed descriptions of how to picture, develop, promote
and sustain their programs. A strong need exists for a volume of reflective
discussion aimed at explaining the context and specifics of running a PWT
program, one grounded in specific institutional contexts and yet "portable"
to other sites and situations.

CFP: The Undiscovered Country: Science fiction in culture and the canon

There have been several milestones met and passed since Edgar Rice Burroughs, the Grandfather of science fiction, introduced us to extra terrestrial life on Mars. Through science fiction we have engaged our minds and souls in the modern manifestation of philosophy and often crossed the line into technical prophecy.

CALL FOR PAPERS: POSTCOLONIAL REVISIONS OF EARLY MODERN HISTORIES. (Deadline
3/1/04; Book Collection)
Unpublished essays that engage the Postcolonial treatment of Early Modern
texts and contexts from the perspective of contemporary novelists are
invited for a collection entitled Postcolonial Revisions of Early Modern
Histories. The book furthers a dialogue not only between Postcolonial and
Early Modern Studies from the relatively neglected vantage point of the
Postcolonial fiction writer, but also seeks to revise Postcolonial Studies
by extending its attention to regions and literatures that are only
beginning to be included in its corpus. As such then, contributions that
