The list of proposed panels for this year's meeting of the South Central Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies (SCSECS) is now available at http://www.scsecs.net/scsecs/2016/panels.html

This year's conference theme is "East Meets West in the Eighteenth Century." The theme is meant to be evocative rather than exclusionary, so if you've got an idea for a paper or panel that doesn't quite fit with the east/west theme... Send it in anyway!

ACLA Seminar: Creative Alternatives to Neoliberalism: Poetic Word in Urban Spaces

Creative Alternatives to Neoliberalism: Poetic Word in Urban Spaces

In this seminar, we invite papers that explore the ways in which poetic words engage with the material and the immaterial in the contemporary urban world, marked by spatial inequality, racism, sexism and the related phenomena of segregation, marginalization, gentrification, or deliberate decay. Many examples of contemporary urban poetry speak about, and from within, spaces marked by the watershed of neoliberal policies, principles and beliefs, and the financial crisis of 2007-08.

Crip Futurities: The Then and There of Disability Studies (Feb. 11-12, 2016)

Crip Futurities: The Then and There of Disability Studies
keynote speakers: Ellen Samuels (UW-Madison) and Alison Kafer (Southwestern)

February 11-12, 2016
University of Michigan, Ann Arbor

When we imagine future worlds, will they be accessible? What might crip future(s) entail? Following Alison Kafer's "politics of crip futurity" outlined in Feminist, Queer, Crip, this conference centers the then-and-there of Disability Studies, wherein disability is not understood as lack or impediment, but as a "potential site for collective reimagining" (Kafer 9). We seek to nurture coalitions between scholars, artists, and activists who collectively aim to articulate the future of Disability Studies.

POLITICS AND POETICS, 3rd symposium, Leverhulme Research Network 'Imaginaries of the Future', Belfast, 19-21 Jan. 2016

Thursday, September 17, 2015 - 11:20am
Queens University Belfast; Ralahine Centre for Utopian Studies Limerick; Newcastle University, UK

What does it mean to think of politics as a poetics, and to do so through the prism of the expectant, the anticipatory, the Not-Yet, and the futural? The third symposium of the 'Imaginaries of the Future' International Research Network seeks to investigate the ways in which futures are both imagined and governed, projected, deferred and deterred, through different disciplinary formations, and to explore the effects of competing ways of conceiving futurity.

[UPDATE] 2nd Annual Literature and Social Justice Graduate Conference

The Lehigh English Department's second annual Literature and Social Justice Graduate Conference will take place on Lehigh's campus in Bethlehem, PA, on March 4th-5th, 2016. We will be accepting proposals from Master's and Doctoral students on this year's conference theme, public humanities. Public humanities takes literature and social justice out of the confines of the classroom or academic publication by balancing theoretical concepts with practical actions and projects that benefit others in order to expand participation in and appreciation for the humanities.

ACLA Panel, 17-20 March 2016: Toward the Empirical Study of Poetic Form

updated: 
Thursday, September 17, 2015 - 6:15am
Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics

Poetic form is marked by regularities, such as metre, rhyme, verse length, the structure and interdependence of stanzas, and myriad other features. Even where poetry discards or deflects such regularities, for instance by changes of metre, free rhythms, non-rhyming verses or unconventional schemata, they are still echoed within the form: we usually define unconventional and irregular poetic forms by their absence of regularities, thereby implicitly highlighting the resulting gap even where it becomes poetically productive.

[UPDATE] "«Le carte» ... «Quali carte»". La Lett. Ita. Cont. tra Filologia e Critica. Hartford, Connecticut. March 17-20, 2016

updated: 
Wednesday, September 16, 2015 - 12:33pm
NeMLA 47th Annual Convention

La tavola rotonda si propone di discutere il processo che dalla Filologia può portare alla Critica letteraria, con particolare attenzione alla metodologia e ai "nuovi" strumenti di lavoro (internet, archivi digitali, ecc.). Ci si interrogherà sulla relazione tra questi due campi di studio: il filologo può o deve essere anche un critico e viceversa? Si sollecitano contributi su studi e lavori conclusi o in corso di svolgimento concernenti il diciannovesimo, ventesimo e ventunesimo secolo.
