Digital Philology is a new peer-reviewed journal devoted to the study of medieval vernacular texts and cultures. Founded by Stephen G. Nichols and Nadia R. Altschul, the journal aims to foster scholarship that crosses disciplines upsetting traditional fields of study, national boundaries and periodizations. Digital Philology also encourages both applied and theoretical research that engages with the digital humanities and shows why and how digital resources require new questions, new approaches, and yield radical results. The Johns Hopkins University Press publishes two issues of Digital Philology per year. One is open to all submissions, while the other one is guest-edited, and revolves around a thematic axis.
Keynote addresses by: Fredric Jameson, Kathi Weeks, Michael Denning, and Kevin Floyd

The International Medieval Society in Paris (IMS-Paris) is soliciting abstracts for individual papers and proposals for complete sessions for its 2013 symposium organized around the theme of "Color" in medieval France.
From the beginning of the Middle Ages, color was as connected to the visual and performing arts as it was to letters, theology, science, the livelihoods of medieval people, and their way of relating to the world.
Call for papers first deadline: 31 January 2013

This seminar seeks to ask what is gained and what is lost through the practice of drawing comparisons between and among cases, spaces, and systems of violence. Comparativity is a methodological watchword in a number of academic disciplines, a process through which we gain insights and draw connections as well as a tool for encountering unfamiliar and complex contexts. And yet the act of comparison itself can be fraught with ethical and political consequences: there are events some deem incomparable, such as the Jewish Holocaust, or comparisons others dismiss as unethical acts in themselves, such as between the Israeli occupation of Palestine and South African apartheid.
Call for Abstracts: 'Creative Composition: Inspiration and Techniques for Writing Instruction' --an essay anthology. We seek essays that examine concrete approaches to teaching writing in several venues, across the spectrum. Abstracts (250-500 words) for proposed essays must be received by Nov 30, 2012. Notifications and invitations for full essays will be sent by Jan 4, 2013. Invited essays (2,500-7,500 words) are due by March 1, 2013.

There is a primary understanding of nineteenth-century modes of impression, expression, and interpretation that predispose positive human connection as opposed to the psychology and philosophy of negativity before and after the Enlightenment. Nineteenth-century semiotic sources other than language are particularly read in separation from one another in different fields so much so that in postcolonial studies, for example, we do not see expression of multimodality in its realistic form. Rather we encounter an idealistic homage in its uni-modality, studying the mind and body of the 'other' through the intellectuality of the so-called governing mind and body of the 'self'.
This is a call for papers for the annual American Comparative Literature Conference which will be held in Toronto, Canada, April 4 - 7, 2013. The abstracts need to be submitted on the ACLA website: < http://www.acla.org/acla2013/> by November 15, 2012.
