CFP: Samuel Beckett: History, Memory, Archive (8/30/06; collection)

       Beckett Studies has changed radically since Richard Gilman claimed that Beckett's imagination worked "almost entirely outside history". In recent years, much work has been done to recover the relevant social and cultural contexts for Beckett's work, and this process has been greatly expedited by continuing efforts to disseminate the contents of the many drafts and manuscripts housed in the archives.

CFP: Little Magazines and the Visual Arts in Modernism (4/20/06; MSA, 10/19/06-10/22/06)

"Little Magazines and the Visual Arts"


The arrival of modernism in the visual arts, for British and American audiences alike, is often equated simply with urban spectacles that drew critical viewers en masse - in Britain, the 1910 exhibition of "Monet and the Post-Impressionists," and in America, the 1913 New York Armory Show. This panel seeks to complicate these assumptions by considering the role that visual reproductions and verbal descriptions of art have played in shaping the conception of what we have come to know as modernism.


CFP: Chapbooks and Knowledge in 18c Britain (4/15/06; NEASECS, 11/9/06-11/12/06)

I have proposed the following panel for the upcoming meeting of the
Northeast American Society for Eighteenth Century Studies (9-12 Nov.
2006, in Salem, Mass.) and am soliciting proposals for papers:

Chapbooks and Knowledge in 18c Britain

How did references to, and/ or knowledge of, chapbooks figure in 18c
redefinitions of knowledge? How did those participating self-
consciously in "Enlightenment" describe chapbooks and their readers,
and how did such descriptions figure in the production, consumption,
and assessment of different kinds of print products?

Westbrook, Stephen

Call for Paper Proposals: Composition & Copyright (Edited Collection)
Eds. Steve Westbrook, Ph.D. & Timothy Hodge, Esq.
We are seeking 500-word proposals for an interdisciplinary collection of essays that examines the relationship between copyright law and the activities of writing, researching, teaching, and learning. Regardless of the particular activity or combination of activities under discussion, we are concerned primarily with the legal, questionably legal, and illegal production and distribution of texts, which we define broadly to include verbal, print, auditory, visual, and new media, as well as computer code.

CFP: Race and Textual Scholarship (3/29/06; MLA '06)

Friday, March 10, 2006 - 1:24pm
Young, John K

Intersections of race and textual scholarship: drawing on what James
Weldon Johnson termed the "dilemma" of the "double audience," this panel
will investigate the ways in which textual and African Americanist
scholarship inform each other. Papers might explore such topics as:
decisions concerning the presentation of particular texts;
authenticating paratexts for slave and other narratives; book-form
republication of works previously published in serial form only for
black-owned periodicals; issues of archival preservation; questions of
canonization; "packaging" and repackaging of "Negro-authored" texts;
dissemination of texts that originally had a strong performative
