We are currently seeking papers (250-500 words) in the following genres. We are not an academic journal but the writing essays we are looking to include in upcoming issues should be informative, interesting and educational, but not formal.

We invite paper proposals for a panel the H.D.

The focus of the panel, "New Approaches to H.D." is open-ended, and we will consider work focusing on any aspect of H.D. and/or her circle, although the interdisciplinary emphasis of the conference (which expressly embraces literature's relationship to other arts and disciplines) means that an interdisciplinary angle might be especially appropriate.

The journal Critical Survey seeks submissions of completed 4000-5000 word articles exploring literary engagements with Victorian sciences. From Darwin, to physiology, to pre-Freudian psychology, to engineering and technology, and beyond, Victorian Britain experienced rapid change – but often seemed ambivalent about whether, as Robert Browning's Andrea del Sarto puts it, "man's reach should exceed his grasp."

July 30-August 2, 2015, Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth Hotel, Montreal, Quebec, Canada

Conference Theme:
Je Me Souviens / I Remember

Quebec's simple but provocative motto, which is not without controversy over interpretation, caught our imagination — both metaphorically and geographically. It invokes thoughts of remembering — remembering theatre at its best, when its immediacy and humanness is embraced, remembering our past and how it points to the future, and remembering our power to instigate change.

Seminar Proposal for Popular Culture Association annual meeting, 1-4 April 2015, New Orleans


Heavy Metal studies has seen a surge over the past years and is increasingly branching out into various interdisciplinary sub-fields. So far, little research has been done on how heavy metal culture relates to cinema. For this seminar at PCA, papers are sought that address, amongst others, the following issues:

* how heavy metal is (ab)used in feature films

* how documentary films create, expand, and discuss a sense of group identity

* how cinematic traditions are used in heavy metal culture.
