CALL FOR ABSTRACTS:
Call for Papers: PSFG/ATHE 2013 Emerging Scholars Panel
The Performance Studies Focus Group (PSFG) of the Association of Theater in Higher Education (ATHE) conference invites submissions of papers for its Emerging Scholars Panel. The theme of this year's conference, which will take place in Orlando, Florida, August 1-4, 2013, is P[L]AY: Performance, Pleasure, and Pedagogy.
Deadline for submissions extended until 12 December 2012.
With the pressures of industrialism and the clustering of workers in urban centres, the Victorians were acutely aware that their environment was changing. Torn between nostalgia for a countryside that was in jeopardy and exhilaration at the rapidity with which their surroundings altered, Victorian literature and culture reflects a world undergoing radical change. Colonization and assisted emigration schemes expanded the scope of the environment still further, pushing the boundaries of the home environment on an unprecedented scale. These untamed physical environments enabled new freedoms, but also posed hostile challenges that invited attempts to control the natural world.
The T. S. Eliot Society will sponsor two sessions at the 2013 annual conference of the American Literature Association, May 23-26, at the Westin Copley Place in Boston. Please send proposals (up to 250 words), along with a brief biography or curriculum vitae, to Professor Nancy K. Gish (firstname.lastname@example.org). Submissions must be received no later than January 15, 2013.
For information on the ALA and its 2013 meeting, please see the ALA website at www.americanliterature.org
UPDATE: The submission deadline has been extended to December 15th.
Statement of Journal:
Burning Daylight is an annual student journal published through Sonoma State University's Department of English graduate program dedicated to providing a place for the emergent voices in the field of literature. We publish original critical and theoretical essays from B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. students that represent the current work, trends, and thoughts in literary criticism, composition, and rhetoric.
This issue does not have a theme so to encourage representation of a wide array of interests and ideas within the field.
This session seeks papers on any aspect of seventeenth-century English literature. Abstracts of 250-300 words are invited for papers to be delivered at the annual conference of the Rocky Mountain MLA in Vancouver, Washington, USA, Oct. 10-12, 2013. Email abstracts – including your institutional affiliation and email addresses – to Kirsten Inglis (email@example.com) by March 1, 2013. All submissions will be acknowledged and notifications sent by March 15, 2013. Non-members are welcome to submit abstracts, but presenters must be members of the RMMLA by April 1.

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.
