CALL FOR PAPERS
(please forward)

2006 is the centenary of the birth of John Betjeman, Poet Laureate from
1972-84. To celebrate this event and to highlight the extensive holdings of
Betjeman's correspondence and manuscripts at the University of Victoria
(Canada), two panels on June 29th are dedicated to Betjeman and his milieu
in the "ON MIRACLE GROUND XIV" conference of the International Lawrence
Durrell Society (25-29 June 2006).

Papers that deal with any aspect of Betjeman's career or his engagement with
his contemporaries are welcome, though those with an archival or comparative
approach are particularly appropriate to the conference's general theme.

Due to a very unfortunate error, the original cfp (see below) mistakingly
stated that panel presenters must hold a Ph.D. Submissions are of course
invited from anyone interested in presenting on the panel, regardless of
educational or professional status. My sincere apologies for the error.

CALL FOR PAPERS: W. G. Sebald and the Poetics of Travel (3/25/2006; MLA '06)

Abstracts are invited for a proposed special session at the annual Modern
Language Association Conference in Philadelphia, PA, 27-30 December 2006.

CFP: Poets on Appropriative Writing (4/15/06; AWP, 2/28/07-3/3/07)

Camille Martin

Raphael Rubinstein says "appropriative writing." Michael Davidson says "palimtexts." Gregory Betts says "plunderverse." Purists say "plagiarism." This panel of the AWP will feature poets whose writing incorporates source texts as a compositional process and perhaps also with the intention of challenging the idea of textual ownership. Poets in this panel will discuss methods of appropriation in their own work and suggest theoretical issues underlying their use of source texts. Please send abstracts (300-500 words) and a brief biographical statement by email to Camille Martin: <c8martin_at_ryerson.ca>. Deadline: April 15, 2006. The 2007 AWP will be in Atlanta, February 28 - March 3.
