We are pleased to announce a call for papers for a two-day conference entitled 'Politics and Texts in Late Carolingian Europe, c. 870–1000', to be held 8th-9th July 2013 at the University of St Andrews, Scotland. This conference will explore the relationship between political authority and textual production in the later Carolingian world.
Stet, the online postgraduate journal of the English Department at King's College London, is now accepting submissions from current postgraduate students for its third peer-reviewed publication. In this issue, we will present articles from an international pool of students on the concept of dis/orientation. We seek to explore the question of how we are and have been located or dislocated in space, time, and history. Which parts of our personal, social, cultural, geographical, genetic, or technological landscape orient us? What incidents construct our conception of ourselves and our environments?
We invite contributions on the theme of Neo-Victorian Cities for the fourth volume in Rodopi's Neo-Victorian Series, to be published in 2014. This collection will examine the retrospective presentation of nineteenth-century metropolises in the light of contemporary approaches to urban politics and geopolitics, exploring links between the city and the past's paradoxical 'modernity', now obsolete. If the metropolis is seen as a synecdoche of the world, how does this conception reiterate or contradict nineteenth-century views of the city as a synecdoche of nations and/or Empire?
Deadline for submission: 1 May 2013
The Journal of the Australian Early Medieval Association (JAEMA) is an annual refereed, peer-reviewed journal devoted to the early medieval period. Volume 9 will be published in late 2013, and submissions are invited now on any topic of early medieval studies (from late antiquity and the end of the Roman Empire to about the end of the eleventh century). JAEMA seeks engaging, original work that contributes to a collective understanding of the early medieval period. The journal welcomes papers on any theme, such as history, art history, archaeology, literature, linguistics, music and theology, and from any interpretive angle – memory, gender, historiography, medievalism, consilience and beyond.
