The Street and the City - Awakenings
Toni Morrison writes in her first novel 'The Bluest Eye' (1970): "Knowing that there was such a thing as outdoors bred in us a hunger for property, for ownership. The firm possession of a yard, a porch, a grape arbor. Propertied black people spent all their energies, all their love, on their nests" (18). This passage brings immediately to mind the thematic preoccupation with property and landholding throughout American literary history—from Nathaniel Hawthorne's 'House of the Seven Gables' to William Faulkner's Sutpen's Hundred, Willa Cather's Blue Mesa to Arthur Miller's Willy Loman—and the place of Black narrative within that tradition.

CFP: European Writers in Exile
We seek essays of 5,000 to 6,000 words for an anthology that explores the work of some of the more popular and/or influential European writers in nineteenth, twentieth- and twenty-first-century exile. The volume will become a part of a popular literary series published by a major press.

THE CEA CRITIC is the scholarly journal of the College English Association, a national organization for teachers of college English. THE CEA CRITIC publishes scholarly articles that read closely texts—fiction, poetry, drama, nonfiction, film, and photography—that English professors study and teach. It celebrates the importance of literary criticism from a variety of approaches and the value of reading and teaching familiar and unfamiliar literary works. This peer-reviewed journal offers three issues annually and is published by Johns Hopkins University Press.
The Wallace Stevens Journal invites submissions of full-length essays for a Spring 2017 special issue on Wallace Stevens and Robert Frost. Any aspect of the poets' works or lives may be proposed. Editors welcome innovative twists on traditional topics, and they are equally interested in understudied topics that have urgency in the contemporary world of theory and criticism, such as colonialism and postcoloniality, disability studies, ecocriticism, technopolitics, gender studies, and popular/mass culture.
INQUIS is an online, biannual, blind peer-reviewed journal which offers graduate students in the field of literatures in English a chance to make their research known internationally. Considering that literary studies as a field of scholarly study has undergone tremendous changes and challenges, both the practice and theory of literary studies certainly need a thorough scrutiny under the light of new perspectives, new approaches, new interpretations as well as new insights. By including the works of graduate researchers, the journal primarily aims to promote dialogue and to serve as an international forum for young academics and researchers where they can share their ideas and contribute globally to the discussions on studies of literatures in English.
Landscape studies is multidisciplinary and has far-reaching academic connections and a diverse array of approaches that give the field its strength. The goal of the Landscape, Space and Place (LSP) conference is to bring together scholars across various disciplinary backgrounds to exchange ideas and consider novel intellectual perspectives. We also hope to encourage a more integrative framework upon which to build the future of the field. As part of the 10th anniversary of this rich and diverse conference, we are inviting faculty and graduate students to contribute abstracts that will comprise workshop-type panels and foster generative discussions about the role of space and place in our research.
