The rise of the ecologically-oriented approaches to literature and the development of ecocriticism as a scholarly discipline in the 1970s did not remain very long the prerogative of the Anglo-American literature and scholarship. Other national literatures and literary studies have been rapidly developing their views on the connections between literature and ecology; these are oftem based on different premises and follow their own respective literary traditions.

Frontiers: A Journal of Women's Studies invites submissions for a special issue on reproductive technologies and reproductive justice. In commemoration of the fortieth anniversary of Roe v. Wade and the legacies of that decision, we welcome scholarly and creative works that analyze the contested terrains of reproduction in local, national, or transnational contexts.

UC Davis Militarization and Gender Research Cluster and Queer, Feminist, Trans Studies Research Cluster

The Militarization and Gender Research Cluster and the Queer, Feminist, Trans Studies Research Cluster of UC Davis are pleased to announce a joint conference, "Queer (In)Security," to be held May 3-4, 2012 at the University of California, Davis.

The conference topic emerges from campus-wide discussions about the role of a militarized police force on the UC campuses, highlighted by violent responses to the Occupy movement. At the same time, the neoliberal university, precipitated by budget cuts and calls for privatization, has destabilized institutional forms of resistance like queer studies, women's studies, and ethnic studies.

Solitary Spectacles

Proposed Panel for the Modernist Studies Association's 14th Conference, "Modernism and Spectacle," October 18-21, 2012, in Las Vegas.

Modernist writers experimented to find both the essence and the furthest limits of their genres, as well as how their genres intersected with each other and with the other arts. This panel will investigate how modernist writers used spectacle within genres that normally don't lend themselves to spectacle: in what ways, to what ends, and to what effects did Modernist writers use spectacle (theatrical, painterly, or musical means) in their novels and poems – in works understood to be usually read silently and solitarily?
