UPDATE: New Formalism Collection

Extended Deadline 11/15

We invite contributions to a proposed collection of essays that examines
new formalism as a vehicle of literary inquiry. We see new formalism as a
literary, cultural movement that harkens back to new criticism, Russian
formalism, and structuralism, while embracing cultural theory and actively
drawing on new historicist methodologies. Because that’s a lot to cover, we
think it appropriate and timely to take another look at contemporary
literary/cultural theory and to call on scholars to reconsider the ways in
which they approach, analyze, and write (about) texts.

Critical Matrix: The Princeton Journal of Women, Gender, and Culture
Volume 18: Collaboration

Critical Matrix: The Princeton Journal of Women, Gender, and Culture
invites original submissions for its forthcoming issue dedicated to
collaboration. As the rhetoric of collaboration permeates contemporary
discourseâ€"from political and economic globalization to “relational
aesthetics”â€" what are the historical lessons of feminism about the limits
and possibilities of collaborative practices and what are the possibilities
of collaboration as a figure of new feminist practices?

Feminist Transitions
22nd Feminist and Women’s Studies Association Conference
Hosted by Edge Hill University at the Bluecoat, Liverpool, UK
June 19-21, 2009

Recent years have seen an unprecedented broadening of feminist issues and
practices. Feminist perspectives have moved across and beyond a number of
established boundaries â€" including geographical, national, economic,
ethnic, political, theoretical, cultural, popular, sexual and gender â€" to
expand the scope of the movement. Now more than ever, there is a need for
an inclusive feminism that sees diversity as strength and engages
productively with the complexities and contradictions of the twenty-first
century.

2009 marks the 150th anniversary of the publication of Darwin's On the
Origin of Species. In commemoration of that epochal event, the Midwest
Victorian Studies Association invites proposals for 20-minute conference
papers that explore events or works that signal profound shiftsâ€"“tipping
points”â€"in one or more elements of the artistic, literary, musical,
political, social, religious, or intellectual life of Britain and its
empire during the long nineteenth century. Because MVSA includes
representatives of several disciplines among its active members, our
conference is particularly welcoming to interdisciplinary approaches.
