Postliminium

Postliminium is the University of London's inter-collegiate student journal for the arts, humanities and social sciences. It was founded last year and the first edition was disseminated to Kings College, the LSE, Goldsmiths, Queen Mary, Royal Holloway and University College London in the summer of 2014, and we have just expanded our editorial board.​ We are now accepting submissions for our second issue, to be published early next year. This will be the final issue to be printed before the journal goes online this spring, and so those essays which are successful will be some of the first to be uploaded to the site.

The 4th Annual English Graduate Student Association Conference
Georgetown University
February 21, 2015
Keynote address by Jed Esty, PhD

Deadline for Proposals: December 31st, 2014

The middle passage, the passage of time, a secret passage. Passing as straight, the passing of a loved one, just passing through. Passages and acts of passing often involve movement and transformations that cross — and sometimes blur — traditional boundaries of place, time, identity, or perspective. This conference will explore how and why passages and passing occur, what they entail, and why they matter.

Great Authors/Great Works

A New Book Series from Rowman & Littlefield

Series Editor: Bob Batchelor, James Pedas Professor of Communication, Thiel College

The Rowman & Littlefield Great Authors/Great Works Series is currently accepting proposals for volumes focused on the cultural and literary history of literature's great works. In an age when "literature" now encompasses everything from multi-modal texts to timeless classics in the canon, the time is ripe for assessing, reassessing, and refocusing our gaze on the centrality of literature and the literary life in the contemporary world.
