Third Annual Graduate English Conference: Crime and Criminality
(April 1-2, 2016, University of South Carolina)

We are currently welcoming submissions, which should include a 250 word abstract. This year, rather than panel presentations, we will host a series of seminars. Seminars will provide participants the opportunity for a collaborative conversation around a particular topic. Each seminar will be capped at 15 participants and will be run by faculty with expertise in the topic. Each participant will submit a five-page position paper before the conference to be read and commented on in advance by the other participants; time in the seminar itself will be reserved for discussion.

Wilde on the Borders: Symposium, Theatre, and Art, April 2, 2016 - Extended deadline

Niagara University, NY

On February 8, 1882, after his seventh lecture in America in just over a week, Oscar Wilde traveled north from Buffalo, NY crossing the border by train to Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada to play the role of tourist. In typical Wilde fashion, his response to seeing the falls was paradoxical, proclaiming it "one of the earliest, if not the keenest, disappointments" of a bride's married life, yet appreciating its aesthetic and spiritual power as "a sort of embodiment of pantheism." Wilde's visit to Niagara Falls is both microcosm and metaphor for all of what might be called Wilde's 'border crossings'—national, classed, sexual, religious, and aesthetic.

We seek intelligent critical articles written in a clear, readable style that offer our readers thoughtful, useful, pedagogically sound, and innovative ideas for teaching American literature. We are also interested in articles about new American authors or lesser known authors who haven't seen much study, particularly in ways that they could add to students' experiences of American literature. All articles go through a blind peer review process with editorial staff making all final publishing decisions. Send manuscripts with abstract. Deadline for Winter 2016 Issue is January 31.

CFP: Peer English

Peer English (ISSN 1746-5621) is a refereed, open-access online journal produced by the Department of English at the University of Leicester and the English Association. Since 2006, its remit has been to provide a forum for exciting, high-quality work and new critical thinking by early career researchers (graduate study, post-doctoral research) through to those already established within the community. This approach also includes the notion of 'work in progress' and we welcome contributions of high academic standards from those currently involved in active research, be they doctoral candidates or Heads of Departments.

Urban Humanities Convergence
March 16-18, 2016

As the world becomes more urbanized, we seek to understand how the Humanities engages with and contributes to urban communities. The Urban Humanities Convergence will interrogate notions of urban spaces, identities and movements by bringing together scholars, artists and activists working within these terrains. From anti-gentrification activism to art movements, from urban fiction to graphic novels, the conference will encompass a wide range of disciplines and encourages interdisciplinary inquiry beyond the ivory tower.
