 "Diversity and Change in Early Canadian Women's Writing" (07/03/06; collection)

The recent conference call for papers on "Diversity and Change: Early Canadian Women Writers" has yielded the attention of Cambridge Scholars Press (http://www.cambridgescholarspress.com), who is interested in publishing an edited collection of essays on the subject. This is a call for complete, developed, critical papers on diversity and change in early Canadian women's writing for this collection of essays.

Modern Jewish Popular Literatures: Beyond the U.S.

Recent investigations into American Jewish popular literature and culture
have highlighted both the ³inside² interest of American Jews to subvert or
recontextualize Jewish identity, and the ³outside² interest of the culture
industries in exploiting yet another profitable brand of urban youth
culture.

But less explored are the Jewish popular literatures that developed in
Eastern and Western Europe, in Israel and the Middle East, and among
Orthodox as well as secular Jews upon their entrance into modernity. Their
extensive history offers a much-needed transnational context for the
contemporary American Jewish scene.
