This interdisciplinary international conference, held in Cardiff, the city of Roald Dahl's birth and childhood, in his centenary year (16th-18th June 2016), will give further impetus to the substantial critical attention devoted to the author's work by seeking new ways of understanding his achievement and place in twentieth- and twenty-first-century culture, broadly considered. The emphasis will be on defamiliarizing Dahl in the very act of bringing him 'home'.

Narrative conference and ebr are seeking proposals that explore the relations between the study of electronic literature and the study of narrative theory. Scholarly and critical essays are welcome that address the influence of the network on the project of the humanities, the continually emerging field of electronic literature, and the ways in which the Digital Humanities grapple with (or sideline?) literature, elements of print and screen, and the production of literary works across extended networks..
Towards a diasporic New-World order of a global 21st century. Retrieving the cultural heteroglossia of our pasts.
Digital America is now accepting submissions for Issue No. 7. We are looking for critical essays, film, artwork, design, reviews, and process pieces that question, analyze, and/or hack the tools of digital culture. We are also interested in work that explores how new behaviors and new, global networks of power and influence are shaping American life. All submissions should engage American life and digital culture and/or digitization in some way. We encourage creative responses to these parameters as we understand the complexities of engaging "America" in a global, networked world.
