The 100 year anniversary is coming of Shackleton surviving nearly two years
in the Antarctic with 27 other men.
We are beginning work on a scholarly edition of Shackleton's history and
adventures, especially related to the Trans-Antarctic Expedition, but open
to all of Shackleton's adventures.
Obviously, this is travel related, but also literary journalism, creative
nonfiction, essay, science and culture, religion, "food" studies, etc.
This edition is in the early stages and opportunities are open.

 We are seeking proposals for a collection of critical essays exploring
American Literature after the “American Century.” With this volume, we
hope to begin a critical discussion of how American literature has
responded to the highly charged social and political climate during the
early years of the 21st century. What characterizes literary
preoccupations after the 20th century, the so-called “American Century?”
How has American fiction incorporated or resisted social, cultural,
economic and political events in the 21st century? How are American
writers responding to nationalism and American identity? What is the mood
of American literature in the face of the nation's perceived decline in

Kristi Krumnow

The Gay and Lesbian Caucus invites 5-10 minute roundtable discussion topics
on the work of Alan Bray. His two main works, Homosexuality in Renaissance
England (1982/1995) and The Friend (2003), span twenty years of academic
achievement in the study of homosexuality, family, and friendship. We are
looking for ideas and thoughts on the development of his theses or more
specifically on his self-proclaimed "puzzling" notions of homosocial and
public friendship as they concern eighteenth-century scholarship. Please
send your proposals to both chairs: Michael Taylor -mttaylor_at_ucalgary.ca-
and Kristi Krumnow -kristi.krumnow_at_usu.edu.
