The poet F.T. Prince (1912-2003) has had a profound impact on contemporary British and American verse; poets as diverse as John Ashbery and Geoffrey Hill have cited him as a major influence on their work. Famed for his war poem 'Soldiers Bathing', Prince's substantial oeuvre includes dramatic monologues, autobiographical long poems, religious verse, and epithalamia.

Overview and Aim
CFP for PAMLA 2012 Conference, "Migration, Immigration, and Movement" (Seattle, 10/19-21); Special Session in American Literature/Film
Rather than forming a continuum, film and film history are composed of a series of transitions, overlaps and junctures: points where a ceding or progression to a different way of thinking or being occurs. This holds true from the era of early cinema up to the advent of digital technologies.
Eighteenth-century culture in England, Western Europe, and America is clearly characterized by the intellectual climate of the Enlightenment even though, just as clearly, Enlightenment spread only gradually and unevenly throughout the regions and cultural strata of the West.

Female Rebellion in Young Adult Dystopian Fiction
Film, television, theatre and video game adaptations of literary and other texts are an expanding area of study for undergraduate and postgraduate students, across literature, film, performance, media, cultural and communications studies programs. While there are an increasing number of theoretical perspectives being published in the field, there is less awareness of what teaching adaptations involves at disciplinary and cross-disciplinary study. Sometimes approaches to adaptations are taught within a broader unit structure in which the status of text as adaptation is given little attention.
Call for Papers: Issue 2.1
NEW Deadline extension: 20 April 2012
Special Theme: Evaluation, Critique, Prizes, and Peer Review
What are the best and newest methods for creating, evaluating, and disseminating scholarly and creative work? This question motivates the next issue of NANO.

Disjointed Perspectives on Motherhood/ Pedagogies of the Reversed Maternal Image (Collection)
Editor: Catalina Florina Florescu, PhD
From its earliest conceptualization as a place on the frontier to its current obsession with national borders, America has existed as a space to be conquered, occupied, fought over, or held. That concept of America as space has also coexisted with an America fraught with anxiety over race. This panel examines the way in which American space and American race inform each other in American literature.
Papers must be submitted through the PAMLA website, www.pamla.org.
