EIGHTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON THE BOOK
6-8 November 2010
University of St. Gallen, St. Gallen, Switzerland
http://www.Book-Conference.com

The Book Conference serves as an inclusive forum for examining the past, current and future role of the book. It proceeds from recognition that although the book is an old medium of expression, it embodies thousands of years' experience of recording knowledge. The pervasive influence of this experience continues to shape newer forms of information technology, while at the same time providing a reference point for innovation.

The Dark Man: The Journal of Robert E. Howard Studies

The Dark Man: The Journal of Robert E. Howard Studies, a peer-reviewed journal sponsored by the Department of English at the University of La Verne (California), welcomes papers on any aspect of the life and work of Robert E. Howard, the creator of Conan, Red Sonya, Solomon Kane, Sailor Steve Costigan, and many other pulp characters from the 1930s. Essays on the various cinematic and comic book/graphic novel adaptations of Howard's characters and stories are also welcome. In addition, essays on writers associated with Howard—such as H. P. Lovecraft, L. Sprague de Camp, Lin Carter, and so forth—will also be considered, but the connection to Howard's life and/or work should be a prominent element of the argument and analysis.

University of Amsterdam, Institute for Culture and History

The recent explosion of popular serialized forms, from Lost and Battlestar Galactica to computer game expansion packs, has provoked renewed interest in the economics and mechanics of serialization as well as the impact of this cultural form on readers, viewers and gamers. How do contemporary serials relate to earlier forms of serialization, and how do they affect our understanding of the concept of serialization? What are the economic, narratological, and social effects of contemporary serials? And where does the form go from here?

Fall 2010 Issue of Diesis: Footnotes on Literary Identities.
Article Submission Deadline: November 22nd

A diesis (or double dagger) is a typographical symbol that indicates a footnote or point of reference within a written work. Diesis seeks to act as a point of reference in the study of the maturation and diversity of socially and biologically constructed performances of identity through a variety of critical lenses. Essays that explore authorial, literary, and socio-political identities across time, space, and genre are particularly encouraged.
