Digital Philology: A Journal of Medieval Cultures
Call for Submissions, 2013 Open Issue
Digital Philology is a new peer-reviewed journal devoted to the study of medieval vernacular texts and cultures. Founded by Stephen G. Nichols and Nadia R. Altschul, the journal aims to foster scholarship that crosses disciplines upsetting traditional fields of study, national boundaries and periodizations. Digital Philology also encourages both applied and theoretical research that engages with the digital humanities and shows why and how digital resources require new questions, new approaches, and yield radical results.
Ted Kooser: A Retrospective
The Society for the Study of Midwestern Literature's 42nd Annual Symposium, "Writing the Midwest: A Symposium of Scholars and Creative Writers," to be held from May 10-12, 2012, at Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan, invites papers on all aspects of Kooser's oeuvre for the panel: "Ted Kooser: A Retrospective." Papers presented at the conference will serve as a foundation for longer article length essays to be included in a forthcoming special edition on Ted Kooser for the Society for the Study of Midwestern Literature's (SSML) journal _Midwestern Miscellany_.
The worldwide growth of English as a first and foreign language has by now necessitated the a term like 'Global Englishes' to describe the range of dialects and usages. Such a term calls attention to the de-coupling of the language from its Anglo-American 'homes', and to the popularity of English as a foreign subject of study. The place of Anglophone literary education, however, is less firm. Despite the fame of certain canonical Anglophone writers and the global domination of Anglophone publishing conglomerates, Anglophone literature is often taught in the service of language rather than literary education.

Femspec, an interdisciplinary journal dedicated to challenging gender through speculative means in any genre, announces a call for material on women, myth, and art.
Do you use myth in your creative writing in any genre, or art? Do you write about women artists and writers who do so? Do you critique or contribute to the growing body of feminist myth scholarship exploring what the ancient mythic archetypes such as these can contribute to women in the modern world?
We are looking for publishable critical and creative material that explores women's reclamation of myth from our own and other cultures, plus the creation and use of new myth.
Femspec (a peer reviewed journal dedicated to critical and creative works that challenge gender through speculative means in a variety of genres) is seeking submissions on speculative aspects of divination through any means including Tarot – particularly representations of Tarot and other readings in film, speculative literature, art, poetry, and popular culture.
Femspec is an interdisciplinary feminist journal dedicated to sf, fantasy, magical realism, surrealism, myth, folklore, and other supernatural genres. We have been in print since 1999 and boast of an advisory board that includes Suzie Charnas, Pamela Sargeant, and Samuel Delany. We are currently seeking submissions for a special issue or themed section dedicated to women who balance the worlds of adventurer and caregiver, with a focus on mothering and reproduction in sf.
