ANNUAL SPRING CONFERENCE 2015
Call for Papers
"Imagination and Creation"
7 March 2015
Keynote Speaker: David Miller, Allegheny College
Location: Montgomery College, Rockville Campus
The Marcher Metaphysicals Conference, 29 October-1 November 2015
Gregynog Hall, Tregynon, Mid-Wales
The Welsh Marches, Marchia Walliae, or Y Mers in Welsh, constitute an extensive area around the boundary between England and Wales. This border country, in its breadth and somewhat hazy demarcation, defies precise definition, and invites fluidity of ideas and perception. The Marches are both a place in their own right, and an approach to somewhere else; they form a site of great natural beauty but also of historic political contention. Norman conquerors used these lands to subdue the native Welsh, as well as to create a jurisdiction separate from the English crown.
The English Graduate Organization (EGO) and the Sigma Tau Delta chapter of Western Illinois University is currently seeking both individual papers and panel proposals from graduate and undergraduate students for our eleventh annual conference in Macomb, IL on October 24– October 25, 2014.
The roundtable will consider how the spaces available for criticism, both inside and outside the academy, as well as the stylistic and disciplinary conventions of criticism, determine, in part, the kinds of critical work that gets (or doesn't get) produced and how that critical work advances (or doesn't) conversation and engagement with literature, art, science, and thought. Proposals representing a variety of disciplinary perspectives, historical eras, and methodological approaches are all welcome.
This reading will provide a space for writer-academics whose work straddles the creative-critical divide. Proposals that swerve, deviate, cross-generic and aesthetic bounds, and generally remain unclassifiable are encouraged.
This reading will take place at the 2015 NeMLA conference in Toronto, Canada. Please submit proposals via the NeMLA website and not via email: https://nemla.org/convention/2015/cfp.html#cfp15421
The British Commonwealth and Postcolonial Studies Conference, inaugurated in 1992, is the oldest and longest-running annual meeting of its kind in the United States. It encompasses colonial and postcolonial histories, literatures, creative and performing arts, politics, economics, and all other aspects of the countries formerly colonized by Britain and other European powers.
There is no restriction to any particular political/cultural ideology or to specific critical practices. The Colonial, Postcolonial, and Decolonized eras all are of interest. We welcome and seek to encourage a variety of approaches and viewpoints, and the generation of wide-ranging, productive debates.

The Literature of Loss
Irish literature is filled with loss; the loss of love, of language, of sovereignty, of wealth, of health and of religion. The atmosphere of loss almost haunts the pages and words of the Irish, and leads to questions about the influence of loss, the representation of loss and the meaning of loss. Where does this loss fit in? How has it changed? What impact do chronological, political, economic and geographical changes have on loss?
This call for papers invites innovative submissions from postgraduates or early career academics on topics relating to the subject of 'Crime/Concealment' for the next edition of HARTS & Minds, an online journal for postgraduates, early career researchers (including EC independent researchers) of the Humanities and Arts, which is due to be published in early 2015.
Our previous editions, 'Against the Grain', 'Space and Place' 'Death and Decay' and 'Sound and Silence' can be found at www.harts-minds.co.uk and updates and review suggestions at facebook.com/hartsandminds.
As LGBTQ Studies finds disciplinary space on a growing number of university and college campuses, questions about the cultural and intellectual effects of academic institutionalization have become progressively more urgent:
• Where is the broad field of LGBTQ Studies heading?
• Where has it been? How might we negotiate the relationship between intellectual inquiry and social movements?
• In what ways might the epistemological concerns of LGBTQ Studies affect the pedagogical imperatives of the classroom (and vice-versa)?
"The Coming of Age of LGBTQ Studies" is a two-day conference devoted to exploring these and related questions.
In the global present, migration is increasingly understood not as a voluntary process, but as one of forced displacement, whether for political or economic reasons. Disillusioned by the rupture of the social contract, and the failure of states to guarantee the rights of all its citizens, forcibly displaced diasporic communities seek forms of representation and expression that trouble statist interpretations of culture that have been traditionally delineated by physical geography. Troubled by the legacies of colonialism, and carrying the trauma of political upheaval and displacement, communities with a history of neglect or abuse by statist discourse have, over the past few decades turned to art forms that embrace futurism via digital media.
