I have a book project from Greenwood Press. I am a series editor on a Ten
volume companion set "The American Dance Floor." Currently the books
without authors assigned are:
 
1. Hip Hop /Break dancing/Urban Underground dances
2. Swing dancing
3. R N R Freestyle dances since 1970
4. Latin dances
The next step is to submit a writing sample of previous writing and also
a proposed outline for the project. The projected retail cost is $39.95
HC, intended as a reference / general reader. Each book will be
packaged and sold separately, but under a general style and format so
that each follows a similar set-up.
45 to 50,000 words with 25 photographs with a permissions rights budget

CFP: [Medieval] Authorship in Medieval Chronicles (Kalamazoo 2009, Medieval Chronicle Society)

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.

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

Our cultural discourse on humor is filled with metaphors--dying with
laughter, punch lines, a joke that "kills"--that link laugher and
violence. The history of American humor has repeatedly literalized these
metaphors in a variety of forms, from slapstick to comic gore. This
panel seeks submissions that interrogate the links between violence and
laughter in American literature and culture in order to assess what the
combination of these two seemingly opposed discourses suggests about
American national identity.
Possible topics include (but are not limited to):
