The Fifth International Literature and… Conference:

CALL FOR PAPERS
Philip Larkin: Personality, Poetry, Prose.
13-14 June 2019, Hull History Centre, Hull, UK.
Co-convened by final-year ‘Larkin-focused’ PhD researchers, Rebecca Devine (University of Hull) and Kyra Piperides Jaques (University of York).
The past few years have been particularly exciting for the Larkin scholar. With Hull – the poet’s workplace and home of thirty years – selected as UK City of Culture 2017, this undoubtedly engendered a renewed interest in not only the work of Philip Larkin, but the life of the poet as well. We expect that this will only be amplified by the successive title being handed to Coventry, Larkin’s birthplace and childhood home.
The benefits of undergraduate research are well established in the literature, and many colleges and universities are now fully embracing undergraduate research as a means to enhance student learning, prepare students for graduate school, foster interdisciplinary collaboration, and promote community engagement. The spring 2020 issue of Scholarship and Practice of Undergraduate Research (SPUR) will examine undergraduate research for the twenty-first century. How is undergraduate research preparing students for the workforce? What role does technology play in undergraduate research? How can undergraduate research address the complex sociopolitical problems of the twenty-first century?

Call for Submissions: "Feminism and Academia Today: A Graduate Student Forum”
Journal of Feminist Scholarship
In its inaugural issue in Fall 2011, the Journal of Feminist Scholarship asked feminist scholars and activists to share their ideas about feminism and feminist scholarship today. Responses from Amrita Basu, Rachel Blau DuPlessis, Agnieszka Graff, and more composed a critical forum assessing the state of the field and pushing it into new directions. Now, eight years later, we ask the same question – this time, to graduate students engaging with feminist studies across all disciplines. What is the state of feminist scholarship today?

ESSAY: CRITICAL RECEPTION OF STEINBECK’S THE PEARL
Seeking chapter submission for a Critical Insights volume on John Steinbeck’s The Pearl under contract with Salem/Grey House Publishers. Known for its simplicity and universal themes of greed, power, and economic oppression, The Pearl was originally published in installments in Women’s Home Companion (1945) with its original title, “The Pearl of the World.” The Pearl is universally appreciated for its accessibility, classroom applications, and suitability to theoretical approaches. With current trends and political climate considered, it is time to revisit this classic text for a contemporary audience.

Shapes of Futures
What is realised in my history is not the past definite of what was, since it is no more, or even the present perfect of what has been in what I am, but the future anterior of what I shall have been for what I am in the process of becoming.
The past, like the future, is indefinite and exists only as a spectrum of possibilities.
