49th annual NeMLA convention in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (April 12 to 15, 2018)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

This roundtable outlines possible avenues for theoretical reflection on the connections between the periodical press in Italy and the participation of women in the public sphere. Focus will be set on two main areas: a) the genesis and the early development of the press in Italy throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, b) the emergence of female editorship and its contribution to the transnational exchange of ideas during the 19th and 20th centuries. Recent scholarship has defined periodical studies as a vibrant field of research which aims to explore the role of the press in the dissemination of knowledge, the circulation of ideas and the formation of culture (Jack Censer, 1994; Pierre Rétat, 2001; Hilary Fraser, 2003).

CFP: Digital English: A Handbook for the 21st Century Classroom

Edited by Naomi Milthorpe, Robert Clarke, Joanne Jones, and Robbie Moore.

Submissions due: September 1, 2017.

 

New university students are digital natives; our classrooms filled with technology. Our students are increasingly online only – distanced by the demands of economics, geography, or time. Yet as English scholars, most of our training has been with physical materials and face-to-face methods: books, paper, discussion. So what are the best methods of using technology in our classrooms? How, why, and when should we use it?

“The Body Aged: Performance, Disability, and Aging in the Long Eighteenth Century”

updated: 
Monday, June 12, 2017 - 11:35am
American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 15, 2017

This panel continues the work started by the "Ecology of Ageism in the Long Eighteenth Century," a panel at ASECS in 2016 that focused on the constructions of age in the eighteenth century. Not only a reflection of genes or time, aging is a cultural discourse that affects the interpolation of identity and the power dynamics of privilege. "The Body Aged: Performance, Disability, and Queer Aging in the Long Eighteenth Century" seeks to expand the discussion of aging by connecting age studies to work in performance theory, disability studies, and queer studies.
