"The centuries go by, and we are still hearing the voice of Scheherazade", says Jorge Luis Borges.
The School of English - The University of Sheffield holds an interdisciplinary research conference on Thursday 19 May 2016, entitled Scheherazade in Classical, Modern and Postmodern Worlds.
The International Society for Heresy Studies announces a Call for Papers for its second biennial conference at New York University, June 1-3, 2016. The conference theme will broadly focus on ideological aspects of heresy in both religion and politics. Throughout history, definitions of "heresy" have been crucial to defining "orthodox" belief, worship, and practice. Indeed, every faith, ideology, and institution must struggle over what is deemed heretical as part of defining what is deemed normative, and it is hard to imagine any ideology (even an anti-ideology ideology) that does not draw a boundary to mark what is subversive or unacceptable.
Welcomes proposals of 100 words on French and Francophone Literature and Culture since 1800. Please include your name, affiliation, e-mail, and telephone. Deadline for submitting proposals to Violaine White at WhiteVD@usml.edu is March 1.

Toni Morrison writes in her first novel 'The Bluest Eye' (1970): "Knowing that there was such a thing as outdoors bred in us a hunger for property, for ownership. The firm possession of a yard, a porch, a grape arbor. Propertied black people spent all their energies, all their love, on their nests" (18). This passage brings immediately to mind the thematic preoccupation with property and landholding throughout American literary history—from Nathaniel Hawthorne's 'House of the Seven Gables' to William Faulkner's Sutpen's Hundred, Willa Cather's Blue Mesa to Arthur Miller's Willy Loman—and the place of Black narrative within that tradition.
