3rd Global Conference: Play on the Edges
Saturday 1st November – Monday 3rd November 2014
Prague, Czech Republic
Call for Presentations:
"What if there were, lodged within the heart of the law itself, a law of impurity or a principle of contamination?"
-Jacques Derrida, "The Law of Genre"
Unlawfulness, impurity, contamination: in the porous and scattered disciplines of gender, sexuality and diversity studies, these are the forces and strategies that impel our criticism and creation, the ethos of the fugitive journal Writing from Below.
THE JOURNAL OF POPULAR MUSIC STUDIES invites submissions for a special issue on global nightlife cultures. There's a myth that to be interested in nightlife -- to party, to seek pleasure in the night, to devote oneself to a club scene and its music -- is to somehow be less concerned with the more "serious" aspects of everyday life. After all, how can you feasibly go to work tomorrow if you've been out until 6 a.m. or later? Ears ringing from pounding dance music. Club stamps still visible on your wrists. Isn't it better to stay at home, safe in the bosom of domesticity and fully tucked away from the ribald dangers and creatures of the night?

9th Global Conference: National and Cultural Histories of the Erotic
Tuesday 4th November – Thursday 6th November 2014
Prague, Czech Republic
Call for Presentations:
National and Cultural Histories of the Erotic forms a special stream of focus within the larger event of The Erotic conference.
From Hemingway's description of his friend's "very fair wavy hair, a high forehead, excited and friendly eyes and a delicate long-lipped Irish mouth" in A Moveable Feast to his signature in The Crack-Up, "Gaelicly yours, Scott Fitzgerald" [sic], the literary world of F. Scott Fitzgerald is suffused with a Nostalgic Ireland. From the Irish Melodies to Dick's "Irish face" in Tender is the Night; the Irish girls, Tammany politics, and the Irish problem, and Anthony and Geraldine's conversation over Chevalier in The Beautiful and Damned; Pat Brady or Katherine Moore in The Last Tycoon; and Monsignor Darcy and Beatrice Blaine in This Side of Paradise, Fitzgerald's novels, short stories, and essays are populated with the remnants of an elusive Ireland.
46th Annual NeMLA Conference

Growth in Writing, Teaching, and Learning
In his classic composition text Writing Without Teachers, Peter Elbow asks us to consider the metaphor of growing as a way to encourage and teach fluid, flexible writing. The idea of growth applies to so many aspects of scholarship, as we approach the profession simultaneously as teachers, students, and researchers in our own rights. This roundtable session seeks to explore the idea of growth broadly conceived, thinking about the ways we develop our writing and teaching, as well as the ways our students' writing develops.
