New publisher Forty-Sixth Star Press invites essays on the theme of
Oklahoma films for an upcoming book. Essays should examine the film image
promoted by a film set in or about people from Oklahoma, one essay on any
one movie from Cimarron to Okie Noodling. The tone of the final essay
should be edgy and entertaining, and around 3000 words in length. E-mail
200-word abstract and contact information by September 15, 2008 to the
book’s editor vanmeter_at_fortysixthstarpress.com.

40th Annual Northeast MLA Conference. Boston, MA.
Feb. 26-Mar. 1, 2009.

Fantasy fiction writer and graphic novelist Neil Gaiman blurs the border
of reality through imaginative tales that transport us to strange and
alluring lands. Yet embedded in the extraordinary are hints of the
familiar. In what ways does Gaiman modernize old myths and narratives
and to what end? How does internet culture influence his work? What
other cultural texts, traditions, and conventions â€" both new and old â€"
inform Gaiman’s short stories, novels, comics, graphic novels, and
films? What does this generic heterogeneity signify and how can â€" and
should â€" we classify these texts?

"Official Writing as Text"

40th Anniversary Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
Feb. 26-March 1, 2009
Hyatt Regency - Boston, Massachusetts

Given that the bulk of all writing that takes place in the world is in the form of a
bureaucratic memo or report, the comparative lack of in-depth studies on such writing is
striking. This panel will seek to explore the bureaucratic document as a text. Papers
might address a particular document; the genre of bureaucratic writing in relation to
other writing; or the problem of studying bureaucratic writing within literature
departments. Email 250-word abstracts to Hannah Gurman: hrg2005_at_columbia.edu

Deadline: September 15, 2008
