For a proposed Special Session at the December 2006 MLA
Convention in New Orleans, I am looking for papers that
discuss the theme, problem, object, or practice of violence in
recent British and Northern Irish writing. I will consider
abstracts until 10 March 2006, at which point I wish to
collaborate with two or three others in drafting a panel
proposal to reach the MLA by 1 April 2006.

CFP: The Aesthetics of Tolerance

Western Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies Annual Convention
Tempe, Arizona, Feb 17-19, 2005

Papers are invited for a panel that will consider both
representations of religious tolerance and the aesthetic itself as a
means to promote tolerance in the Enlightenment. Papers that consider
toleration in relation to anxieties about Enlightenment modes of
disciplinarity, the containment of conversation in the public sphere,
or the ideological interests served by the promotion of toleration
are welcome, as are investigations of the rhetoric of tolerance, the
formation of liberal subjectivity, and ambivalent treatments of
tolerance.
