(Re)deeming Hemingway

This is a CFP for a proposed panel to be held at (dis)junctions, the 15th
annual humanities conference at University of California Riverside on April
11-12, 2008. Harold Bloom has famously dubbed Hemingway “a minor novelist
with a major style.” This sort of characterization, as well as his troubled
relationship with “cutting edge theory” has rendered Hemingway increasingly
unfashionable in academia. Contributors are invited to submit critical
works that examine the ways in which Hemingway’s work can be interpreted in
new light. These papers can analyze any of the Hemingway’s texts and/or any
relevant critical and biographical works.

CFP: [18th] NACBS: "Eighteenth-Century British Biocultures"

updated:

Jonathan Nash

I am interested in forming a panel with the proposed title,
"Eighteenth-Century British Biocultures," for the 2008 North American
Conference on British Studies (http://www.nacbs.org/). In the Summer 2007
issue of New Literary History, Lennard J. Davis and David B. Morris
published the "Biocultures Manifesto." Davis and Morris argue, "culture
and history must be rethought with an understanding of their inextricable,
if highly variable, relation to biology. The general name for this
phenomenon we call 'biocultures.'" This panel wishes to explore and test
the applicability of Davis and Morris’s "bioculture" paradigm to the study

CFP: [General] Female Academic Superstardom (2008 M/MLA)

Andrea Powell

The Women's Caucus for the Midwest Modern Languages Association is
inviting 250-word abstracts for a panel entitled "Female Academic
Superstardom." The 50th Annual Convention of the Midwest Modern Language
Association will take place on November 13-16, 2008 in Minneapolis,
Minnesota.

This panel will explore female academic superstardom from a variety of
perspectives. Successful abstracts might address one or more of the
following questions:

How does a critic or theorist become an "academostar," a term used to
describe a high-profile academic in a 2001 special issue of The Minnesota
Review devoted to academic superstardom?

Is there room on the runway for female "academostars"?

MUSE AS ARCHIVIST: AFRICAN LITERATURE AS ALTERNATIVE HISTORY
Date July 3-6, 2008.

Introduction: Documentary of History
Literature continues to serve us as universal language, primarily because
the general human community subscribes to its aesthetic and spiritual
experience. Long before the age of writing, our forebears found a quick
ally in its oral form, which in turn came to impact substantially on the
role of the traditional “remembrancer” and other succeeding generations
in the community and stately courts of African indigenous society.

The border is a world of multiple conflicts and difficult definitions,
inhabited by individuals who navigate different frames of reference,
cultural issues, gender roles and performances, economic statuses and
conditions in order to construct a viable identity for themselves.

identity, linguistic identity, tradition, gender roles and sexuality,
