The College English Association—Caribbean Chapter (CEA-CC), a gathering of scholar-teachers in English, welcomes proposals for presentations (20-minute papers) for our 2016 annual conference which will be held at the University of Puerto Rico, in Mayagüez on Friday, March 11 and Saturday March 12, 2016. The topic for the 2016 conference is Animals in Literature and Film. The conference will explore the role of non-human animals in the literary imagination. Animals have had a ubiquitous role in literary representation from antiquity to the present. This role has acquired an important focus in recent critical theory, especially in posthumanism approaches.

The City in Quarantine--abstract due 9/30/15, conference 3/17-20, 2016

In William Shakespeare and Thomas Middleton's problematic play Timon of Athens, the fate of Athens hangs in the balance as the eponymous character threatens the city with literal and figurative diseases from outside its walls. Timon thus embodies a nightmarishly pathogenic force, sending forth plagues and venereal diseases to "thatch your poor thin roofs/With burthens of the dead" (V.iii.143-145), even as the city's gates bar his physical entrance. Although Timon of Athens has traditionally been regarded as an anti-corruption allegory, the play thus presents fruitful opportunities for examination through the lens of quarantine and urban containment.

It seems too tedious to have to explain this all to lazy clerks in English, though I will write down here so that the lazy priest will not think it too much trouble to open his eyes to it. Now I want the noble clerks to shake all laziness from their mind's understanding so that they can better understand this Call for Papers for the First Ever ALL BYRHTFERTH of RAMSEY session at The International Congress of Medieval Studies (Kzoo 2016)!

CFP: Love and the Word, Melbourne, 7th-9th December 2016

Love & the Word - AULLA Conference 2016

DEADLINE: Monday the 29th February 2016

Hosted by Victoria University, the Australasian Universities Languages & Literature Association Conference will be held in Melbourne, Australia from 7th-9th December 2016.

The conference theme draws on AULLA's origins as an association of scholars working in fields of philology. Thus we examine both philos (love) and logos (word). How does affection affect words? What do people mean by 'love' and its counterparts in the world's languages? Or perhaps: how does it 'do' those meanings?
