Peer English (ISSN 1746-5621) is a refereed academic journal, now in its fifth year, published by members of the School of English at the University of Leicester. Our remit is to publish leading research from those academics at the very beginnings of their careers (graduate study, post-doctoral research) through to those already established within the community. This approach also includes the notion of 'work in progress' and we welcome contributions of high academic standards from those currently involved in active research, be they doctoral candidates or Heads of Departments.
Grand Valley State University is pleased to host Shakespeare Connects, October 2-3, 2009. This conference seeks to integrate aspects of Shakespeare scholarship and performance by bringing together a unique dynamic of Shakespeare scholars, practitioners, and educators. Through the integration of these dynamics, we hope to create a unique learning environment that will enrich our understanding of Shakespearean scholarship and performance.

The oral, as a system of communication, while connecting the speaker and the listener in a network of communitic experiences, produces epistemological parameters status for the individual and the community.The three day-international conference will dwell on the questions of epistemology, identity and agency as emanating from the oral within the social—including indigenous and the cosmopolitan life worlds—without inviting/invoking an essential distinction between the two. Moreover, the conference will also address performance as an integral part of orality to understand the link and rupture between the sacred and the profane and between history and memory. It will inaugurate memory as mobilizing cognition and subjectivity.
REMINDER DEADLINE 8/15
"These academics' arguments seem sound as far as they go..." –Infinite Jest
The critical discussion of David Foster Wallace has thus far been limited to a few aspects of his most popular works. Our conference seeks to expand the response beyond the popular imagination's categories of "difficult," "postmodern," and "genius," and beyond the author's own articulation of his project as a response to irony. We invite a reconsideration of Wallace with an emphasis on new perspectives of his entire oeuvre.
