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?

Submission Call : The Sunflower Collective

The Sunflower Collective

The Sunflower Collective is looking for submissions. We celebrate the personal and the political - which we believe to be one and the same thing - in art.

We would like to mention at the outset that we are not interested in art that does not take risks. We do not mind if you have a degree but we are unlikely to be impressed by it. Nor do we care which journals have published your work before. All we are interested in is something that sings for itself without any props, something that grabs us by our throat and refuses to let go, something that shakes us out of our complacent stupor. Give us something hungry, not bellyful; something beat, if you get our drift.
