"Natural Philosophy for the Novice: Popularization and Print Culture in the Long Eighteenth Century"
Borrowers & Lenders, The Journal of Shakespeare and Appropriation, is soliciting contributions to its "Appropriations in Performance" section. B&L is a peer-reviewed, online, multimedia scholarly journal and winner of the CELJ's "Best New Journal" award for 2007. We publish two issues each year. In addition to the main section, which features articles and article clusters, we regularly run three dedicated sections: Appropriations in Performance, Digital Appropriations, and Book Reviews.
For the "Appropriations in Performance" section, we prefer thesis-driven reviews focused on arguments and observations over more traditional, archival reviews geared primarily to making descriptive or evaluative records.

Call for Papers for "It's Happening Again": 25 Years of Twin Peaks is a proposed edited collection on the television show Twin Peaks. Eric Hoffman and Dominick Grace solicit essays for a new collection celebrating one of television's greatest cult phenomena. Originally airing in 1990/91, Mark Frost and David Lynch's Twin Peaks will be returning, just over twenty-five years after it went off the air, and this collection will explore the show in the context of its time, and its legacy. We are interested in papers on all aspects of the television program as well as on tie-ins and connected materials (e.g. the film Fire Walk with Me, the new Log Lady material added for the show's run on Bravo, the book The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer, etc.).
Contemporary perspectives on Christianity's role in American Indian communities are diverse and often ambiguous, partly due to this religion's involvement in colonization. While some grassroots traditionalists and many in the activist and academic communities frequently reject Christianity for its role in dismantling American Indian traditions and identities, the past is complex, and the American Indian Christian community is strong and growing. The last two decades have seen its resurgence. Recent works such as Mona Susan Power's Sacred Wilderness Sterlin Harjo's This May Be the Last Time, and The Cherokee Hymnbook: New Edition for Everyone reflect ongoing practices of Christianity in Indian Country today.
Scholarship regarding the creation and transmission of ideas in colonial British America often falls under the methodology of one discipline or another. Literary scholars, historians, philosophers, musicologists, archaeologists, anthropologists, and others research and discuss the same areas of inquiry, but seldom work in close proximity and dialogue with one another. This panel is an opportunity for scholars across the disciplines to share their own ideas about the movement of knowledge and ideologies in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century colonial British America.
The siting of the 2016 SCMS conference in Atlanta (3/30-4/3/16), where the Audre Lorde papers are housed at Spelman College, provides an ideal opportunity to convene a panel that addresses Lorde's investment in the intersections of race, gender, class, ability, age, and power. This panel seeks scholars, media makers, activists, and educators who have made use of the Audre Lorde archive, both at Spelman and at large, to examine the impact of the Black lesbian feminist poet's ideas on the contemporary moment.
This issue of New Formations will propose a rethinking of the legacy of revolutionary socialist Rosa Luxemburg in the twenty-first century. In particular, essays included in the issue will draw on Luxemburg's writings in order to address pressing issues of the contemporary world. At a time when neoliberal policies strengthen the smooth running of imperialist dispossession and continue to break the oppressed classes through new forms of precariat, debt, marginalisation, militarism and impoverishment, Luxemburg's inheritance seems to acquire an unexpected poignancy. Luxemburg's uncompromising commitment to socialism as only alternative to the violence of capitalism can inspire engaged movements fighting social justice in many contexts of the globe.
Our focus is on the South, but for the 2015 Symposium, we are particularly interested in the intersection of art, particularly photography, and creative writing. How does the visual evoke the written word?
We are accepting proposals for readings in fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction as well as panel discussions and workshops.
Writing Workshops: Propose a workshop that gives Symposium attendees practical writing advice that enhances their writing. All genres and geographic locations welcome.
Presentation/Panel Discussion Sessions: Pitch a panel or presentation that explores any aspect of creative writing from the idea to the marketplace.
La sessione si propone di discutere il processo che dalla Filologia può portare alla Critica letteraria, con particolare attenzione alla metodologia e ai "nuovi" strumenti di lavoro (internet, archivi digitali, ecc.). Ci si interrogherà sulla relazione tra questi due campi di studio: il filologo può o deve essere anche un critico e viceversa? Si sollecitano contributi su studi e lavori conclusi o in corso di svolgimento concernenti il diciannovesimo, ventesimo e ventunesimo secolo. Si prega di inviare una proposta di 250 parole entro il 30 Settembre 2015 a https://www.cfplist.com/nemla/Home/cfp scegliendo la sessione 15888.

Dealing With The Dead: Mortality and Community in Medieval and Early Modern Europe
Call for abstracts for chapters to be included in an upcoming volume on Death and culture in Medieval and Early Modern art, history, and culture.
In William Shakespeare and Thomas Middleton's problematic play Timon of Athens, the fate of Athens hangs in the balance as the eponymous character threatens the city with literal and figurative diseases from outside its walls. Timon thus embodies a nightmarishly pathogenic force, sending forth plagues and venereal diseases to "thatch your poor thin roofs/With burthens of the dead" (V.iii.143-145), even as the city's gates bar his physical entrance. Although Timon of Athens has traditionally been regarded as an anti-corruption allegory, the play thus presents fruitful opportunities for examination through the lens of quarantine and urban containment.
