MLA, January 2018, New York: Seeking proposals to a non-guaranteed session about kinship terminology or terms of endearment used for friends and foes. For example, in The Song of Roland, characters use sarcasm to describe enemies as friends, and interestingly, demeaning monikers are used to chastise friends. What do these epithets say about the cultural boundaries between friends and enemies in medieval and renaissance literature? Please send 500 word proposal and CV by 20 March 2017 to Pamela Kirkpatrick (kirkpatp@uark.edu ). Also, please email questions or comments. If proposal is accepted, attendant must be an MLA member by 7 April 2017, per MLA guidelines.

The Mythopoeic Society is launching into a series of 50th anniversaries—of the founding of the Society in 2017, of the conception and launch of our scholarly journal Mythlore in 2018, and of our first society conference in 2019. For the fiftieth anniversary of our Society, we would like to see papers and panels relating to gold, and to celebrate the work of our Guests of Honor, to the gold that can be found through library and archival research. As always, papers on any topic relating to J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Charles Williams, and mythopoeic fantasy in general, not just our theme, are welcome as well.
