Call for Submissions
Media Fields Journal Issue 5: Memory, Space, and Media

Submission Deadline: November 15, 2011

Trends towards spatial analysis and memory studies have both emerged as vibrant and booming fields of inquiry in the humanities. In this special issue, we ask what is to be gained at the intersection of memory studies, spatial studies and media studies? What role does disciplinary specificity have to play in the conjunction of these fields? What are other ways to examine memory and space outside a paradigm of trauma?

Call For Papers:

T. S. Eliot and the Heritage of Rome and Italy in Modernist Literature
(Florence, Italy - February 4-11, 2012)

DEADLINE FOR PROPOSALS: NOVEMBER 20, 2011

An International Symposium dedicated to exploring relations between the culture of Rome and Italy and Modernist Literature, with a special attention to the work of T. S. Eliot.

T. S. Eliot was a connoisseur and an admirer of the cultures of Ancient Rome and Renaissance Italy. The symposium topic deals with one of the most interesting aspects of Eliot's exceptionally complex and erudite poetry, and that is the deep impact that the literature and culture of Rome and Italy had on his work and on Modernist Literature in general.
