In Speak, Memory, Vladimir Nabokov writes that "Sirin passed," "across the dark sky of exile" "like a meteor, and disappeared, leaving nothing much else behind him than a vague sense of uneasiness." While most would disagree that Nabokov disappeared or left nothing much behind him, many would agree that exile played a large role in his life and works. Even before he was forced to flee Russia, Nabokov's earliest poetry expressed the pain of exile and loss, a pain that would only intensify in the years to come.

Rural Geographies of Gender and Space, Britain 1840-1920
23rd September 2011, University of Warwick
*CFP DEADLINE EXTENDED– 15th August*
Whilst discussions of gender and space in the nineteenth-to early-twentieth century have typically focused on "women and the city", rural spaces offer equally productive contexts for exploring the intersections between gender and space in this period. As the socio-spatial relations of the country are impacted by the move into modernity, rural environments are revealed in literary and historical texts as sites of complex, contradictory and changing gendered codes.
Toni Morrison's latest novel, A Mercy, demonstrates the contemporary writer's continued preoccupation with the history of slavery in the New World as well as the ever expanding range of approaches to this subject matter. This panel invites papers that examine contemporary narratives of slavery (written after 1970) and how they render this historical experience in terms that challenge contemporary readers of all racial backgrounds.

My country Penne would alwaies shun the City: Regional manuscript transmission, 1500-1700 @ Society for Renaissance Studies 2012, 9-11th July, University of Manchester.
While the transmission of manuscript texts in early modern England has been understood as a phenomenon based in metropolitan centres, a number of recent studies have now shown that hand-copied texts were an important means of communicating literary culture all over the British Isles. As suggested by the title's quotation from Nicholas Oldisworth, regional manuscripts can show a lively culture of composition and circulation that operated quite independently of the cities, though important exchanges were maintained between urban and non-urban environments.
This panel aims to bring into conversation different approaches and models for analyzing the cross-cultural film remake as an industrial, textual, and cultural category. Much work has been done on Hollywood remakes of Hollywood films but the area of cross-cultural remakes remains relatively under-theorized. Most scholarship on remakes concerns itself with issues of adaptation and homage in the remake; plagiarism and recycling; anxiety of influence in the remake, etc. While these factors acquire a different inflection in the cross-cultural remake, it becomes imperative to ask certain additional questions when films cross industries, nations, and cultures: What is the nature of intertextuality here?
Society for Cinema & Media Studies (SCMS) Conference
March 21-25, 2012
Recent work in film history has deemphasized broad national frameworks for criticism and analysis, proposing instead studies that center on more localized interactions with films and with cinema culture at large. Richard Maltby, Daniel Biltereyst and Philippe Meers (2011) define this "new cinema history" as work that analyzes "the circulation and consumption of film and examines cinema as a site of social and cultural exchange."

Rhetorical inimitability is unanimously considered by the Umma as one of the manifold facets of the Holy Quran. The latter has repeatedly and directly challenged the Arabic speakers and scholars versed in Arabic eloquence to come up with a single Surah as structurally and eloquently composed as its own. Such a challenge was never met. Because of this inability, the divine rhetoric has compelled many people to embrace Islam; a fact which shows the Quran's great power and eloquence as well as its divine and miraculous nature. This powerful and effective language of the Quran raises significant challenges and unveils major complications in the process of translation for the following reasons:

The issue of "improving alignment between secondary and post-secondary education," "college readiness," and "dual enrollment" is on the front burner of many Writing Department agendas. Many schools have been taking part in the initiative to provide secondary students with more appropriate preparation for college-level courses in math, reading, and writing. CUNY has "College Now" and various New Jersey community colleges have implemented the "College Bound" model; both models receive substantial state funding.
