Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 30, 2018

This session welcomes papers that explore any aspect of American Literature before 1865, including American Renaissance, Colonial, and Puritan literature. While we are open to papers dealing with a variety of topics and authors during this time period, we are particularly interested in papers that engage with the special conference theme of "Acting, Roles, Stages." As such, papers dealing with issues such as acting as art and metaphor, theories of role play and theatricality, and conceptions of the world stage and the public audience in American Literature prior to 1865 are particularly welcome. If your paper does not tap into these specific themes but deals with literary topics relevant to this era, you are still more than welcome to submit a proposal.

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, August 20, 2018

2019 marks the 300th anniversary of the publication of Love in Excess, the still-popular work of fiction that launched the print career of one of the most important authors of the entire eighteenth century. The Early Atlantic Reading Group at Purdue University therefore calls for papers and non-fatal enquiries in celebration of all aspects of Eliza Haywood’s work, career, and world (such expansive topics might include bibliography, women’s book history, theatricals, the Hillarians, or even Haywood and Crusoe—which also marks its 300th birthday in 2019). Please send abstracts of approximately 250 words to Manushag N. Powell (mnpowell@purdue.edu) on or before August 20, 2018.

Historians have long recognized the central relationship between property ownership and political participation in Britain. As many have acknowledged, throughout the nineteenth century, men’s ability to vote was based on fulfilling a property qualification; even women’s enfranchisement in 1918 still carried property requirements.
