Making Race in Modern America

Characterized by economic and political upheaval, massive demographic
movements, an expanding American empire, competing definitions of race, and
nativist fears of mongrelization, the early decades of the twentieth
century represent a critical period in the history of American racial
formations. This panel invites papers that examine how literary, popular,
filmic, or other visual texts participate in developments in American
racial discourse during the period between the World Wars.

authorities in descriptions of sacred space in the literary, visual, or
musical arts.

Interdisciplinary and non-Anglo approaches are welcome. Please e-mail

Call for Papers: Capital and Corporal Punishment in Anglo-Saxon England

44th International Congress on Medieval Studies
7-10 May 2009
Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo MI

Execution, mutilation, and bodily punishment permeate our understanding of
Anglo-Saxon judicial practice. In addition to the Old English law codes
that prescribe death and mutilation for criminal offenders, physical
penalties figure prominently in biblical exegesis and theological
discourse, in hagiographical and literary texts, in works of art, and in
the archaeology of the pre-Conquest landscape.

CFP: [Postcolonial] Ex Plus Ultra: Post Graduate Journal of Colonial and Imperial History and Post Colonial Theory

updated: 
Thursday, August 7, 2008 - 6:16am
Jemima Mowbray

Call for Papers - Ex Plus Ultra

Ex Plus Ultra is a new international postgraduate journal of colonial and
imperial history and post colonial theory. We are seeking articles,
review essays and book reviews for our forthcoming first issue.

The name Ex Plus Ultra is a play on the old Roman warning non plus ultra
meaning ‘nothing further beyond’ found by sailors and navigators at the
borders of empire. The warning defines the geographical limits of empire
and marks the ‘beyond’ as nothingness. It labels that which empire does
not know and that where empire does not go as a non-place and non-time.
There is nothing further beyond.
