Interrogation Techniques: Law, Texts, Culture
Simon Fraser University English Graduate Conference, May 29-30, 2009

This interdisciplinary conference will interrogate the role of the law in
the production, content, dissemination, and critical reception of texts.
The relationship between legal and other discourses affects how cultures
and individuals perceive the world, and act on that perception. Law,
literature, and society intersect in diverse forms, from the Ten
Commandments to the political role of the novel in Victorian England, from
vigilante justice in revenge tragedies to the establishment of the Creative
Commons online.

CFP: [Cultural-Historical] Special Issue of Clio: "Historicizing Disability"

updated: 
Thursday, November 20, 2008 - 4:10pm
Rachel Hile

Clio: A Journal of Literature, History, and the Philosophy of History, an
international triennial journal, publishes scholarly essays on three
interrelated topics:
• literature as informed by historical understandings
• historical writings considered as literature
• philosophy of history
Clio does not so much publish in three disciplines as it seeks essays that
are themselves interdisciplinary in their arguments. Our focus is
historiography, in reference to any time period and literatures. We do not
publish factual expositions of historical events or
uncontextualized "readings" of literary texts.

CFP: [American] Violence, Pain, and Trauma in Poe: Proposals invited for a conference session/thematic journal issue

updated: 
Thursday, November 20, 2008 - 11:09am
Jana Argersinger and Scott Peeples

The editors of Poe Studies: History, Theory, Interpretation, Scott Peeples
and Jana Argersinger, are planning a potential conference panel and
subsequent thematic issue on the subject of violence, pain, and trauma.
Poe's violence is often so stylized that critics tend not to take it
seriously as violence. Instead, we recognize the satire in the abuse
suffered by the narrator of "Loss of Breath" and the decapitation of
Psyche Zenobia, and we contemplate the symbolic meaning of Rowena's torture
in "Ligeia" and Madeline's premature burial in "The Fall of the House of
Usher." But given the fact that violence is pervasive in Poe's tales and

CFP: [Romantic] Essay collection: Romantic Texts and Politics

updated: 
Thursday, November 20, 2008 - 3:21am
Sharon Lynne Joffe

I plan a collection of essays on the connection between texts and
politics in the Romantic period. The collection will support the idea
that the text sometimes became a political work which called for
political reflection and/or change. Essays should therefore investigate
the works of writers who used their texts to reflect their political
leanings and ideologies. This collection of essays will reinforce the
notion that the political activism often associated with the Romantic
time period was promoted through the literature produced by Romantic
writers.

Please submit essays of about 20 - 25 pages by January 31, 2009:

CFP: [Victorian] Pater and Cosmopolitanism

Megan Becker-Leckrone

        The Pater Newsletter seeks essays for a special issue on "Pater and Cosmopolitanism." In “Mr.
George Moore as an Art Critic” (1893), Pater asserts that “the genius of Ingres is cosmopolitan, like
that of those old Greek artists,” then goes on to explain why “a certain cosmopolitanism [is], in
truth, an element of national character.” Essays that explore the implications of cosmopolitanism
for literary, aesthetic, mythic, historical, national, political and/ or cultural work in a Paterian
context are invited. Essays should be approximately 2500-3000 words. Each submission should
include a title page identifying your name and institutional address; the essay, which should not
