This conference intends to focus on the possible perceptions of the journey to/from/around the Mediterranean Sea, moving from an Italian, European and extra-European perspective (with specific reference to the American continent, which is so historically and culturally connected to the Mediterranean heritage and to its explorations), and concentrating moreover on the theme of immigration/emigration to/from the Mediterranean Basin, the result of centuries-old, intercultural exchanges occurring between its shores, as well as the new challenges (social and economic) facing the region from globalized society and from the increasingly urgent democratic requirements of the populations inhabiting it.

2014 Call for Submissions
Portals is currently accepting submissions for our Spring 2014 issue.

Portals invites original critical essays and short creative fiction that explore comparative literary topics across cultural, regional, linguistic, and temporal boundaries for the Spring 2012 issue. This edition will be available in scholarly journal listings worldwide.
This panel welcomes papers considering the role and function of liminality, liminal personas, and liminal landscapres in works of American Literature. Paper topics are not limited to, but may include, the application of Arnold van Gennep, Victor Turner, Pat Mora, and Gloria Anzaldua. Papers should explore the connection between liminality and the American understanding of land, race, gender, identity, genre, or reality (though other considerations are welcome).
This special issue seeks to explore research topics dear to Prof. Paul Brennan (+ 2003) who left such a mark in Irish Studies in France and in Europe – State-building, public policy, Church issues, the peace process in Northern Ireland, and cultural life, whilst not forgetting contemporary literature. Although it has a 20th-century focus, this issue also seeks to present directions in which scholarship in those topics has developed in the early 21st century, and invites submissions on those themes regardless of whether authors were acquainted with Prof. Paul Brennan.
This session invites papers that address any aspect of Shakespeare and his works to be delivered at the sixty-eighth annual Rocky Mountain MLA conference in Boise, Idaho, Oct. 9-11, 2014. Topics of interest include historicism and unhistoricism, race, religion, gender, and sexuality.
Please send 300-500 word abstracts to James Mulder (firstname.lastname@example.org). NB: As of 2/4, the email address listed on the RMMLA website is outdated and abstracts sent there will unfortunately bounce. Please be sure to send abstracts to email@example.com.

Academia and Geek Culture
Last year, the Nine Worlds convention hosted an academic conference. You can find the details of it at www.sffacademic.wordpress.com. This year, we're intending to do it somewhat differently. Instead of having an academic conference in its own devoted room, we'll be placing talks, panellists and other speakers in tracks on their own topic.
