updated: 
Sunday, October 4, 2015 - 12:23pm
ACCUTE 2016 (Calgary, 28-31 May 2016); submission deadline 1 November 2015

This panel surveys and celebrates examples of women in collaboration, also taking into account some of the possible challenges associated with women in partnership. How do women's groups or communities handle differences in sexuality, ability, race, ethnicity, and religion among members? What does it mean to be women in collaboration in the Canadian city recently voted worst for women (Edmonton), or the city voted best (Québec City), or the city ranked exactly in the middle (Hamilton)? How have women's communities been depicted in various media, and how have collaborators presented themselves? Submissions should be in keeping with ACCUTE's broad interest in English studies, and work on any time period is welcome.

Thursday, October 1, 2015 - 7:18pm
The Georgia-Carolina College English Association (GACCEA)

The Georgia-Carolina College English Association (GACCEA) invites proposals for individual papers and three-person panels at its annual meeting in metropolitan Atlanta. The conference will be held on Friday, 29 January 2016, at Georgia Gwinnett College.
The topic is "Diaspora in the Digital Age: Texts of Leave-Taking to New Lands."
The plight of refugees far from their homeland has been a societal phenomenon for thousands of years. In the last two centuries alone, people have fled famine and fighting for resettlement in new lands. In the last two years, families have abandoned ancient villages for new destinations on other continents. Many families have left rural regions for urban centers during migrations within countries.
