Have decades of digital studies enhanced, altered, or muted the project to recover and represent more diverse histories of writers, thinkers, and artists positioned differently by gender, race, ethnicity, sexualities, social class and/or global location?

Genre-Bending in Lawman's Brut (9/15; Kalamazoo 5/14-17, 2015)

Kenneth Tiller / International Lawman's Brut Society
contact email: 

Since its publication in 1847 by Sir Frederic Madden, Lawman's Brut has challenged scholars with the question of genre, as various studies have tried to categorize it as a "chronicle," "epic," "romance" or as some other form of literature. Recent studies have also noted Lawman's blending of the features of different poetic and prose genres. Seeking to further this debate, this session asks for proposals that examine issues of genre in the Brut. It encourages papers that take on questions of how best to categorize Lawman's work and proposals that examine his use of the various genres and sub-genres available to him, including for example hagiography and the homily.

The Coming of Age of LGBTQ Studies: Past, Present, and Future Directions (San Diego State University, April 17-18, 2015)

SDSU LGBTQ Research Consortium
contact email: 

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.

Call for Papers: "Broken Narratives"- Graduate Student Conference-Ohio State University-Saturday 11th Oct, 2014

Broken narratives abound in literary and cultural history. Serialized literary works, serial television, fragmented novels, and shuffle literature are among the many forms that use brokenness as a resource for unfolding narratives. The eclectic nature and the many avatars of "broken narratives" make them valuable sites for comparative studies. Arguably, brokenness remains integral to certain textual forms more than others: Segmentation and sequentiality, for instance, are identified as key to the comic form (McCloud) as well as narrative poetry (McHale; DuPlessis) and television series (O'Sullivan).

POETRY AND PUBLIC SPACES: FORMS, PLACES AND PRACTICES IN THE 20TH AND 21ST CENTURIES

This conference will explore the ways in which poetry has been increasingly present and inscribed in public spaces throughout the 20th and 21st centuries. Off the page poetry actualizes itself in both old and new forms which deserve to be inventoried and explored in more depth. Its increased visibility, which varies according to different cultural and linguistic areas, is at the crossroads of different artistic expressions. A rather specific conception of poetics is involved in this phenomenon: one that questions the relationship between text and performativity; renews the notion of authorship (individual or collective); and re-thinks concepts related to intermediality.
