Below is the original call for papers. We have an exciting collection of proposals and are looking forward to a tremendous conference. Yet, we wish to extend the proposal deadline in order to broaden our scope. We have several undergraduate papers that are very worthy and we would like to create at least one more undergraduate panel. Furthermore, we will accept proposals beyond the defined concept of "Medievalism." The new deadline is December 5th and all contact information is also below.

"The wonder opened up elsewhere. The things we don't do."

"Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth"

"Thanks to consciousness, am I not at all times elsewhere from where I am, always master of the other and capable of something else?"

The Wellcome Trust-funded Science Fiction and the Medical Humanities project invites abstracts for its concluding conference. Science fiction is a fertile ground for the imagining of biomedical advances: technologies such as cloning, prosthetics, and rejuvenation are frequently encountered in science-fiction storytelling.

Find a map and spread it out on your desk. Close your eyes and pick a random spot. Open your eyes and find out whether the place you picked is any better than where you are now. The chances are it isn't, and yet, to think of elsewhere often comes with the unspoken addendum, 'anywhere but here'.

And of course, elsewhere is so appealing because of the implicit promise that, elsewhere, there must be something else. To want to leave here is to ask: Is this all there is? Is there nothing else? But this desire or demand can be easily disappointed, either because elsewhere is always inaccessible, or because (and this is not necessarily different), once we are elsewhere, it becomes here.

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.
