An Interdisciplinary Symposium, Friday 2nd October 2009
Nottingham Trent University, UK

Keynote address by Professor Nur Masalha,
Director of the Centre for Religion, History and Holy Land Studies, St Mary's, Surrey

As a site of complex and enduring conflict, Palestine – conceived as a cultural entity – poses many challenges to those who wish to engage in the task of its meaningful representation. Nevertheless, a desire to confront these challenges continues to flourish – among political thinkers, activists, scholars, creative practitioners, writers and critics both within and beyond the Palestinian territories.

The review should particularly address the gender and postcolonial dimension of the movie. The review should be informative and evaluative, without being dismissive: that is, the reviewer should find some value in the work being reviewed.

Reviews in French, Spanish, Italian are also welcomed.

E. E. Cummings: Nation, Race, and Popular Modernism (9/20/09; Louisville, 2/18/10-2/20/10)

Friday, June 26, 2009 - 10:28pm
E. E. Cummings Society

The E. E. Cummings Society and the Society's journal, Spring, invite abstracts for 20- minute papers for the 38th annual Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture since 1900, February 18-20, 2010, at the University of Louisville. Considering the range of Cummings' modernist experiments and re-imaginings of genre through language, typography, and many art forms (from the lyric to prose non/fiction, to stage plays, and to the visual arts), along with his transgressions of formal boundaries (including metrics and rhyme), we invite papers that examine Cummings' multi-faceted engagement with the modern, in particular, issues of nation, race, and war, as well as his exploration of the popular vernacular.
