International David Foster Wallace Conference

The Third Annual International David Foster Wallace Conference celebrates the 20th anniversary of the publication of Infinite Jest by inviting submissions about what is widely considered to be Wallace's master work. This year also marks the 20th anniversary of Wallace's edition of the Review of Contemporary Fiction, where he speculated on the Future of Fiction with writers such as Jonathan Franzen, Mary Caponegro, William T. Vollman, Steve Tomasula, and Curt White, among others. This year, the David Foster Wallace Conference invites scholarship on Infinite Jest, the anthology and its contributors, and The Future of Fiction twenty years later, particularly in the ways it addresses female writers and writers of color.

The Scattered Pelican, the graduate journal of Comparative Literature at Western University, London Canada

The Scattered Pelican, the graduate journal of Comparative Literature at Western University, is excited to share the Call for Papers for its forthcoming Spring issue, entitled "Fight OR Flight":

Cannon's work provided us with insight into how animals—humans included—employ physiological mechanisms to deal with stressful encounters, arguably with the end to maintain homeostasis in both the bodily and environmental systems.
