World Congress of Scottish Literatures: Dialogues and Diasporas
The second World Congress of Scottish Literatures will be held in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada from June 21-25, 2017 and will coincide with the annual meeting of the Eighteenth-Century Scottish Studies Society. The Congress's subtitle, "Dialogues and Diasporas," speaks to the range of ways in which Scotland is articulated both at home and within a global context. At the same time, it acknowledges the multiple roles Scotland has played in the production of both globalism and localism.
Queer studies is at a crossroads. The Supreme Court's decision on marriage equality, in conjunction with unparalleled advances in political inclusion, and widespread visibility for queer and transgender people have greatly influenced the public sphere. At the same time, recent theoretical turns away from anti-normativity as a guiding principle have called into question the utility of the appellation 'queer.' Tensions between the extreme levels of violence and poverty for people at the margins of "queerness," particularly trans people of color, and this widespread visibility and political inclusion, raise important questions for queer studies today.

Eborakon - Call for Submissions
Deadline 25 February
Eborakon is an annual poetry magazine based at the University of York, publishing new writers alongside established poets. The name is derived from the Brythonic for York, meaning "place of the yews". We value writing that is rooted, both in the resonances of language as it has been used over the course of history, and in the evocation of place. We are nourished by the writers and critics who have preceded us, at the same time branching out to explore the future. Like the yew, for us poetry is mysterious and earthly, real matter that is potentially dangerous to savour.
