Writing for Liberty is a two-day conference hosted by the Centre for Transcultural Writing and Research at Lancaster University to be held on 17-18 April 2015.
We are now requesting academic papers and new creative writings for reading and performance. The Writing for Liberty Conference will focus on the relationship between forms of creative writing and questions of personal, artistic, social, and political liberty. Contributions may refer to any period in history and to any social, political or cultural context, though our main emphasis will be on contemporary writing practice and critical/theoretical response.

The English Graduate Organization at the Univ. of Georgia invites papers in a wide range of disciplines for our annual conference this upcoming March 20-21 (panels 1/2 day Friday and a full day on Saturday). While we as an organization stress literary studies, we hope to foster an eclectic group that touches on a wide range of exciting, ongoing scholarship. Furthermore, scholars of any stripe are encouraged to apply. We wish to have every level of the academy represented, from distinguished faculty to beginning graduate students (or even promising undergraduates). Status should not be a factor (be it discipline or experience level): our focus is the promotion of high-quality, new, and innovative work.
The New Voices Planning Committee is proud to announce that we are now accepting proposals for the 2015 New Voices Conference. This year's annual conference will be held February 5-7, 2015, at Georgia State University in Atlanta, Georgia, and will feature papers, panels, workshops, creative writing readings, and speakers related to our annual theme, which is as follows.
While cognitive literary studies is beginning to establish itself in Shakespeare criticism, there have not been many ventures into the broader applications of cognitive science to early English literature, with the exception of a few examinations of the York Cycle or John Donne's poetry. How might Margaret Cavendish's Description of the Blazing World be interpreted in relation to an emerging Cartesian dualism? Can new insight be gained by exploring a playwright like Ben Jonson, whose attention to scientific discourse is perhaps greater than that of Shakespeare? Should we be skeptical of this burgeoning field? What new applications or readings can enhance current approaches to Shakespeare's works and other early English writers' texts?
The Women's Caucus for the Modern Languages
welcomes submissions for its annual awards.
"To them, you're just a freak, like me! They need you right now, but when they don't, they'll cast you out, like a leper!… When the chips are down, these... these civilized people, they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve."

TRANS-AM :: Losing/Becoming Self
Individuals from around the globe travel to Louisiana early in the year to participate in Mardi Gras celebrations. Masks, costumes and reverie encourage participants to shed certain prefigured aspects of identity in order to become something new. Much of the excitement these traditions allow is rooted in the idea that one can undergo a personal, transformative experience by relinquishing a prefigured sense of self.
