Ethics and / of Formalism â€" Society for the Study of Narrative Literature, Austin, May 1-4, 2008

Contemporary theory has often associated ethics with particularizing impulses in narrative and in
criticism. In the interest of ethics that strive to reach beyond the particular, we request submissions
for one or more panels that ask about narrative form as a site of ethical relation and generalization,
and about the ethical purchase of formalist approaches to narrative.

International Research in Children’s Literature

The International Research Society for Children’s Literature (IRSCL) was
established in 1970 and is a leading association for scholars of
children’s literature. The study of children’s literature is increasingly
being recognised as an integral part of literary studies, and the rapid
expansion of the subject area highlights the need for a scholarly journal
that is international in scope. Following our announcement at IRSCL’s
18th Biennial Congress in Kyoto, we are now inviting submissions for the
inaugural issues of International Research in Children’s Literature.

nonunderstood."

The editors invite submissions of critical and/or creative work for both
the print and web issue, including critical articles, fiction, non-fiction
(of up to 6000 works), poetry (3-5 poems) and artwork.
