The Early Modern Colloquium, a graduate group at the University of Michigan, is seeking submissions for its conference on the conceptualizations of the sacred and secular during the Medieval and Early Modern periods in February. This conference will engage with issues of periodicity through questions of secular versus sacred authority both during and between these eras. More specifically, it will investigate particular literary representations that negotiate and mediate the divide of the sacred and the secular in Medieval and Early Modern Europe. Keynote speakers will be Nancy Warren (Texas A&M) and Sara Poor (Princeton).

REWRITING
Keynote speaker: Prof. Lawrence Venuti (Temple University)

The 2015 FIGS Conference theme, Rewriting, seeks to explore the multiple manifestations of a work throughout its lifetime. The rewriting process may entail the draft work of the original author pre-publication, the revisions of a work (both subtle and dramatic, author-authorized and unauthorized) in successive re-editions, translations and the inter-textual or adaptational re-appropriations by other authors and artists.

Literary Exteriors - February 21, 2015

Boston College English Graduate Conference

How do we understand exteriors in literature? With critical study often focused on interiority, subjectivity, and soul, the outside is often overlooked or put aside. But what happens when the focus is redirected to exteriors, physicality, materiality—the tangible, ready to be touched surfaces of objects meant to be read? What happens when we pay attention to the shell rather than the spirit? The Boston College English Graduate Conference seeks abstracts for papers that consider these literary exteriors. The question of exteriority ranges from the covers of the book a reader holds, to the bodies and objects described within, to the varied complexities of visual and material culture and their range of texts.

Deadline Extended to December 8th!
Trance: March 5-6 2015

This conference seeks to bring together critical and imaginative forms of scholarship, workshops, performance and other creative work around ideas of trance. From the Great Awakening's irruptive glossalia to the glossed eyes of late capitalist workers, from various manifestations of trance dance to the moving spiral, trance is woven into the fabrics of spiritual, theological, political, and literary histories, texts and methodologies. Trance not only challenges Enlightenment models of knowledge production, but also forces us to navigate extra-linguistic experience, thus destabilizing language as epistemological ground.

Human Terrains: Identity, Geography, Politics

University of Virginia Graduate English Student Association

Taxonomy and tribe; gender and globe; state, sex, and system. We're categorization machines: it would sound like a weak generalization if it weren't such a persistent impulse. We survey exteriors and interiors. We reform law and language in a quest to codify identity. The more terrain we successfully chart, the wider, deeper, more tortuous we find the human landscape. How manifold are the ways we can map our worlds?

CFP - 50th Anniversary Conference: British and Turkish Literary and Cultural Interactions (Due: 31 Dec. 2014)

full name / name of organization: 
Hacettepe University, Department of English Language and Literature, 50th Anniversary Conference: British and Turkish Literary and Cultural Interactions
contact email: 

The aim of this conference is to revisit the literary, artistic and cultural texts, whether they are canonical or non-canonical, from both the (English/British) West and the (Ottoman/Turkish) East, from a historical period stretching from the Medieval Period to the end of the twentieth century, and representing the encounters and exchanges between the two. One major concern of the conference is to include into the debate the discursive constructions other than "Orientalism" (i.e. possible Occidentalism(s)?, essentializing self-representations) for the purpose of expanding the scope and scale of the academic conversation in this area.
