Proposals are being sought for an edited collection of essays that examine Thomas Pynchon's "California novels" (The Crying of Lot 49, Vineland, and Inherent Vice) as a group and/or his use or representation of California in his fiction and other writing. Papers on other related topics, such as the relation of Pynchon's work to that of other California writers, or even attempts at biographical criticism focusing on his California experiences, are also welcome. We are particularly interested in essays that deal with more than one work, but will consider relevant proposals that deal with single works.

The 2012 Information Fluency Conference will be held March 14-16, 2012 and will feature a keynote address, plenary session, and concurrent sessions with presentations on the various aspects of Information Fluency. This year's theme is "Information Fluency & the Digital Divides." For additional information please go to www.ce.ucf.edu/if.
This interdisciplinary student conference endeavors to bring about discussion and ideas on the current themes of occupation expressing themselves in political demonstrations and movements
throughout our nation and the global community. Exploring these themes in literature, film, and rhetoric provides a textual landscape for the creative expression of occupation which foregrounds and/or responds to the world-wide movements of the early 21st century as well as addressing historical ideas of occupation. Traditional as well as novel approaches to this theme are encouraged.
The Journal of Information Fluency is a peer‐reviewed, online publication addressing scholarly issues related to information fluency. The first issue was published in June 2010 and included a number of invited papers from various academics in the information fluency discipline. The journal is now seeking submissions for its upcoming issues.
While the Journal of Information Fluency attempts to publish works in a timely manner, space considerations and editorial decisions may delay the publication of a manuscript.
