In keeping with SAMLA's 2011 special focus, "The Power of Poetry in the Modern World," this special session seeks papers that address the ways in which poetry has derived, ceded, and wielded power in a modern world mediated by print. Possible topics include: the power of print to shape poetic form and meaning; the power of such print outlets as the anthology and modern magazine to popularize or restrict the audience for poetry; the bibliographical means by which poetry has expressed or challenged power; the ways in which poetry questions the power of modern print through an emphasis on orality or through an embrace of the digital.
We invite proposals for papers exploring literature pedagogy at the community college level and welcome critical/theoretical approaches to teaching literature. This is an interdisciplinary call extended to teachers and graduate students. Suggested topics include:
Critical / analytical / interpretive essays are invited from scholars across the world for an Anthology to be brought out on the GEETANJALI of the noted Indian Poet Nobel Laureate RABINDRANATH TAGORE.

AJAS Call for Papers
The Materials of American Studies, December 2012.
Bill Brown observes that by the end of the nineteenth century, "the invention, production, distribution and consumption of things rather suddenly came to define a national culture" [Sense of Things 4]. This issue of the Australasian Journal of American Studies, "The Materials of American Studies," explores the role of objects in understanding, representing, tracing and conceptualising America, its past and present. We invite essays that explore the material of American Studies: the production, reproduction, consumption and circulation of objects from the colonial period to the present.
Ever since the publication of Appadurai's groundbreaking study Modernity at Large (1996), concepts like "multiculturalism", "globalisation" and, more recently, "cosmopolitanism" have contributed to raise questions about the future of Postcolonial Studies – opening up to issues of "canon expansion" and "rerouting", among others (Madsen 1999; Wilson et al. 2010). From a somewhat counter-perspective, attempts at turning Europe itself into a highly problematic region of postcolonial analysis have also been made.
The term "incorporated art" might be used to describe art that exists in the form of an institution, company, or other organization. In contrast with art that takes incorporation as its subject, incorporated art begins with the act of incorporation and exists only to the extent that the incorporated entity remains in operation.
