Our first round of Regular and Affiliated Group CFPs are now live on our website! Please visit https://samla.memberclicks.net/samla-87-cfps to look through our weekly updated list of panel proposals.
We are still accepting CFP proposals as well.
SAMLA 87 will take place November 13th through 15th, 2015 in Durham, North Carolina. Our topic, "In Concert: Literature and the Other Arts" invites interdisciplinary session proposals that investigate the relationship literature and language hold with their fellow arts.
This is an open topic session, but we especially seek papers that explore the intersections of literature and politics in the Medieval and early modern periods. Please e-mail abstracts to Ashley Bender by March 31.

Transforming Knowledge/Transforming Discourse: Trans Through Writing
Friday, May 8th 2015
Eighth Annual Brooklyn College Graduate English Conference
Keynote Speaker: Michelle Ann Stephens, Rutgers University
The Brooklyn College English department invites proposals for the eighth annual graduate student conference. This year's conference aims to consider what the prefix trans means to us as critical thinkers.
The quint's twenty-sixth issue is issuing a call for theoretically informed and historically grounded submissions of scholarly interest—as well as creative writing, original art, interviews, and reviews of books. The deadline for this call is 25 February 2015—but please note that we accept manu/digi-scripts at any time.
MLA special session will investigate the influence of literary translation and adaptation on the development of new genres, forms, and modes of literature.
How do translated texts contribute to already-established literary canons in the receiving culture(s)? What kinds of translational choices do translators make? What is kept and what is lost in the process of translation?
The University of Chicago Society of Fellows in the Liberal Arts will host a two-day conference addressing the theme of Theory and Practice. The conference seeks to explore the tenuous relationship between theory and practice in the human and social sciences, and the practical dimensions of theoretical interventions in struggles for political emancipation, institutional structures, and artistic, historical, and scientific movements.
Our keynote speaker will be Danielle S. Allen (UPS Foundation Professor, School of Social Sciences, Institute for Advanced Study).
Deadline extended to April 15!
These days the word "craft" gets attached to a lot—from cocktails to crochet, 3D printing to upcycled t-shirts, handmade paper to handmade pickles. And this trend only appears to be growing as craft is closely connected to the DIY movement: a wide-ranging, ever-expanding, and sometimes controversial field of work and play.
THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE CONFERENCE

Presentations will be 10-12 minutes long. Students may read papers or give more informal talks.
