Our first round of Regular and Affiliated Group CFPs are now live on our website! Please visit https://samla.memberclicks.net/samla-87-cfps to look through our weekly updated list of panel proposals.
We are still accepting CFP proposals as well.
SAMLA 87 will take place November 13th through 15th, 2015 in Durham, North Carolina. Our topic, "In Concert: Literature and the Other Arts" invites interdisciplinary session proposals that investigate the relationship literature and language hold with their fellow arts.
The T. S. Eliot Society will once again sponsor a panel at the annual South Atlantic Modern Languages Association conference (SAMLA), to be held in Durham, NC, November 13 - 15, 2015. Paper proposals addressing Eliot's many-sided engagement with the extraliterary arts, the SAMLA 87 theme, are especially welcome, but any abstract reasonably related to Eliot's life and works will be considered. By June 1, please submit a 250-word abstract, brief bio, and A/V requirements to John Morgenstern, Clemson University, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is an open topic session, but we especially seek papers that explore the intersections of literature and politics in the Medieval and early modern periods. Please e-mail abstracts to Ashley Bender by March 31.

MLA 2016 Call for Papers: Frost, the Public, and the Artistic Community of His Time
The quint's twenty-sixth issue is issuing a call for theoretically informed and historically grounded submissions of scholarly interest—as well as creative writing, original art, interviews, and reviews of books. The deadline for this call is 25 February 2015—but please note that we accept manu/digi-scripts at any time.
Possible topics: animal-human encounters, pastoral or colonial representations of ecologies/life words, and narratives and poetics of living in common(s). We especially welcome papers attending to the affective, everyday nature of more-than-huamn encounters and eco-spheres, as invoked/mediated in Romantic poetry and Victorian fiction. The diverse, if diffuse, impact this period's representations of more-than-human publics have on contemporary or subsequent readings of nineteenth-century England and its empire, and, more broadly, on animating new relations/approaches to postcolonial studies, green studies, bio-politics, more-than-humanism, etc., are of particular interest to this panel.
