CFP: [Graduate] The Schuylkill [Grad. Journal] Seeks Book Reviews 8/1/08

updated: 
Friday, June 27, 2008 - 2:31pm
Daniel Ryan Morse

The Schuylkill, a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal founded, edited,
and run by graduate students at Temple University, seeks 5 page,
double-spaced book reviews for its new reviews section. Because we want to
provide an original and important (though sadly neglected) angle to the
discussion of new works, we will publish reviews by graduate students
exclusively. Additionally, the reviews will explicitly address the
reviewer's impressions of the importance of the work to future research as
well as emerging fields, disciplines, approaches, etc.

Call for papers for two sessions organized by the The Medieval Chronicle
Society at the 44th International Congress on Medieval Studies, Kalamazoo,
MI, 2009

Session one:
Authorship in Medieval Chronicles

Decades ago, literary theorists were busy writing about the “death of the
author”. Today we are witnessing what could be called a "return of the
author", as there is an increasing number of studies focusing on the idea
of authorship. Fortunately, this has also spawned a renewed interest in
certain medieval writers, such as Chaucer, Marie de France, Chrétien de
Troyes, Christine de Pizan, Dante, and others.

CFP: [Rhetoric-Composition] Edited Collection on Rhetoric in the Rest of the West

updated:

Marcia Kmetz

Rhetorical scholars have begun uncovering the many marginalized rhetorical
traditions silenced by the homogenous nature of histories, reading and
writing new histories of the rhetorical tradition through frames from
gender to geography. Despite these substantial challenges
to/reinterpretations of the traditionally received history of rhetoric,
many voices are still silenced and many spaces are still excluded. This
silencing and excluding continues, perhaps, because of assumptions that no
texts exist from these marginalized voices or that substantial rhetorical
activity was not conducted in these marginalized spaces. These assumptions
may be based, in part, on an urban ideal of rhetorical activity, a
