Gillian Dooley and Nick Turner, the editors of 'Writers in Conversation', an international open-access online literary journal, are seeking interviews with writers of all kinds.
Interviews provide an opportunity for engagement between writers and critics/literary scholars and help ground literary criticism and theory in the reality of creative practice. They are of interest not only to literary and creative writing scholars, but also to many other readers. 'Writers in Conversation' contributes to the resources available to researchers internationally and to the development of a creative and engaged critical community.
Hybrid Poetry and/as Pedagogy.
We find ourselves in a world where economic logic rules the day. Caught within the rationality of neoliberalism, those of us who contest austerity, privatization, and the concomitant militarization of civil society are often left to counter them through vague logics of redistribution which take as given the very systems of accounting which we seek to undermine.

CFP: Medievalism in Popular Culture
PCA/ACA 2015 National Conference
April 1-4, 2015 – New Orleans, Louisiana
New Orleans Marriott
The Medievalism in Popular Culture Area (now the combined areas of Arthurian and Other Medievalism) accepts papers on all topics that explore either popular culture during the Middle Ages or transcribe some aspect of the Middle Ages into the popular culture of later periods. These representations can occur in any genre, including film, television, novels, graphic novels, gaming, advertising, art, etc. For this year's conference, I would like to encourage submissions on some of the following topics:
"Forms of Talk" takes into account the multifaceted achievements of "talk," as distinct from related categories like speech, voice, discourse, dialogue, communication, or even conversation. Our seminar shares a title with sociologist Erving Goffman's groundbreaking study (1981) on what is known as the "microsociology" of everyday interactions. We are interested in oralities that have been considered too commonplace, informal, accidental, idle, wasteful, or inauthentic to be of literary value.

ACLA 2015 Conference, Seattle, WA (March 26-29)
Writing a text as if it were a translation creates a specific kind of fiction: it overlays the act of authorship with an invented author, and the original text with an invented original in a different language, aimed at a different audience. Original translation does not (only) invite readers to imagine a fictional world, but to imagine a fictional original version of the very text they read.

Twelfth Annual Université de Montréal English Graduate Conference
March 12 & 13, 2015
Imagining the Ideal Body: A Graduate Conference on the Politics and Poetics of Perfection.
The L-A-N-G-U-A-G-E school of poetry marked a shift—or a return to avant-garde practice—in American poetry in the 1970s. This seminar examines the continuing international significance of the L-A-N-G-U-A-G-E school of poetry in the wake of renewed politically engaged practices after the international years of protest of 2011-2013. At a moment when artistic movements across the world are taking up avant-garde and modernist strategies, what is the legacy of that earlier recovery of the avant-garde? Diverse poetic practices associated with the loosely defined movement edged toward the position, in Lyn Hejinian's words, that: "Language is nothing but meanings, and meanings are nothing but a flow of contexts.
