Italo Calvino once asked, "Who are we, who is each one of us, if not a combinatoria of experiences, information, books we have read, things imagined?" And while this question maintains its relevance, it is about time we turn our attention away from the individual, the "we," and ask this question of the texts we produce and the environments in which they are produced.

The 25th Annual International Conference on Virginia Woolf, sponsored by Bloomsburg University, will take place in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, June 4-7, 2015. The topic, Virginia Woolf and Her Female Contemporaries, seeks to contextualize Virginia Woolf's writing alongside the work of her contemporaries. This unprecedented number of women writers — experimentalists, middlebrow authors, journalists, poets, and editors — was simultaneously contributing to, as well as complicating, modernist literature. In what ways did these burgeoning communities and enclaves of women writers intersect with (or coexist alongside) Virginia Woolf?

Scientists have declared that we are in living in the Anthropocene, an age in which human behavior and actions are massively altering the ecosystems of the earth. Nobel laureate Paul Crutzen claims that whereas humans once saw themselves as "rebels against a superpower we call 'Nature,'" now "we are taking control of Nature's realm, from climate to DNA. We humans are becoming the dominant force for change on Earth."

[REMINDER]Death in the Cityscape: CRAS Special Issue 01/04/15 (Abst.01/12/14 )

In contemporary literature, the intersection of the space of death and mourning within the confines of the city acts as a method of critiquing our understood modes of living. Since Plato's Republic, the uneasy interplay of death and memorialization within the polis has been considered. Theorists like Gillian Rose in Mourning Becomes the Law and Sharon Zukin in Naked City have elaborated upon the discourse of space, death, and mourning within an urban setting. This issue of finding a space within the city for the dead remains with us, and recent American economic turmoil places the urban metropolis and its spaces of decay in sharp focus (seen in novels like Teju Cole's Open City, television shows like The Wire and movies such as Synecdoche, New York).

Our theme for the 2015 interdisciplinary SWES conference is "Transitions" and what that means to the disciplines we work in - across English, the Humanities, Arts, Business, Politics, Sciences, Social spheres, and Technology. The concept is often relevant to scholars in many fields and especially to those whose work straddles the boundaries of one or more disciplines.

The purpose of this conference is to consider the usefulness of psychoanalysis for political critique, as well as politically-oriented frameworks for reading cultural phenomena. Rather than view psychoanalysis as a transhistorical, universal paradigm for resolving the mysteries of the human in all their manifestations, the goal will be to explore how psychoanalytic inquiry provides a way into history, rather than an escape from it. In terms of the current global economic predicament, we hope to investigate how psychoanalysis can help us move beyond the limited "rational choice" theories of neo-liberal economics without replacing them with a potentially problematic form of socialist rationalism sometimes embraced by the left.

The William Carlos Williams Society invites abstracts for a panel of three 20 minute papers to be presented at the 2015 American Literature Association Conference (May 21-24, 2015; Boston, MA).

To mark the 90th anniversary of the publication of Williams's In the American Grain in 1925, this panel invites contributions that consider the importance and impact of Williams's take on American history. Largely dismissed and misunderstood by his critics on its appearance, how does its iconoclastic approach to history resonate with readers today?

Please send 250-word abstracts and a brief bio to Ian Copestake at copers@gmail.com, no later than December 14th, 2014.
