Randy Robertson / Susquehanna University

Modern Language Studies, the journal of the Northeast Modern Language Association, is seeking reviews for the summer 2013 issue.

I am especially interested in reviews of primary sources (including scholarly editions, contemporary literature, art, film, comic books, visual and popular culture), pedagogical works, and hypertext publications. However, reviews are no longer restricted to these categories.

Graduate students are welcome to contribute to the journal. Please submit your review electronically (as a Word attachment) to Randy Robertson, Reviews Editor of MLS, at robertson@susqu.edu.

PAMLA 2013 (Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association)

Native North American authors throughout colonial and U.S. histories present complex and distinct challenges to linear time. Considering how "growth" or "age" is complicated by indigenous epistemologies of temporality in Native North American texts illustrates alternatives to the performance of "growth." This panel will examine Native North American authored texts and characters that co-exist in past/present/future and how "growth" and "age" interacts with colonial, historicist time in ways that challenge or illustrate the problematic construction of "aging" for Native populations in North America.

American Wars: Material & Ideological Battlegrounds

"This nation is peaceful, but fierce when stirred to anger" (George W. Bush, National Day of Prayer and Re-membrance for the Victims Of the Terrorist Attacks on September 11, 2001 Washington National CathedralSeptember 14, 2001). The contradiction of the United States' commitment to the values of freedom, justice
and democracy and the violent imposition of these values through war and warlike actions, implicit in this statement, has shaped the image of what was to become the United States and have helped build the American nation and society since the earliest days of colonization.

Tammy Powley/Indian River State College

The Indian River Review is currently soliciting submissions for its third issue scheduled for publication in late spring/summer 2014. The theme for this issue is "Technology," and we plan to take a very broad view of this theme. As man moved from an oral to a literate culture, technology has affected the way we communicate and live. At one time, even the simple number 2 pencil was a technological advancement. From quills to computers, from knitting needles to the Mars Rover, technology comes in many forms, and we would like to explore this concept in our third issue.
