DEADline is approaching!!
Medieval drama taught its audiences not only about virtuous living but, more importantly, a good death and a joyful afterlife. Miracle plays re-played the most significant and most spectacular deaths known from the Gospels, while morality plays, such as Everyman, imagined the act of dying and the prospects for posthumous happiness of their main characters.
The editorial team at Studies in the Novel is seeking content for its online archive of indexed teaching tools on the journal's affiliate website. I am seeking pedagogical content that addresses teaching novels using digital humanities tools/perspectives. Please consider submitting sample course syllabi, specific assignments, short narrative descriptions of your own experiences, or other appropriate content. The next deadline for submission is November 20.

CFP: European Writers in Exile
We seek essays of 5,000 to 6,000 words for an anthology that explores the work of some of the more popular and/or influential European writers in nineteenth, twentieth- and twenty-first-century exile. The volume will become a part of a popular literary series published by a major press.
We take our title from W. B. Yeats' poem "Easter, 1916" to invite new takes on an old tune: the relation of aesthetics to politics. This three-day graduate conference at the University of Virginia, featuring poet Paul Muldoon as keynote speaker, will mark the centenary of the Easter Rising in Ireland and invite fresh thinking about how art rises through its occasions.
Today it has become a commonplace within the academy that human artifacts—artistic or otherwise—be considered within the social and material contexts of their production. As Rita Felski has observed, "What word ["context"] could be more ubiquitous in literary and cultural studies: more earnestly invoked, more diligently defended, more devoutly kowtowed to?"
