The Subject Beside Itself: Ecstasies of Juxtaposition
Dealing with Academic Stress and Personal Crises
This board-sponsored roundtable aims to help NeMLA's members deal with academic stress and personal crises (e.g. divorce, death, serious health issues, caregiving, among other challenges). The goal of this roundtable is sharing helpful suggestions and strategies with the audience rather than telling personal stories. To ensure that participants represent different professional categories and that all types of crises are covered, interested participants are invited to submit their detailed 300- to 350-word proposals.

The New Voices Planning Committee is proud to announce that we are now accepting proposals for the 2015 New Voices Conference. This year's annual conference will be held winter 2015 at Georgia State University in Atlanta, Georgia, and will feature papers, panels, workshops, creative writing readings, and speakers related to our annual theme, which is as follows.
Interest in the fields of food and sustainability studies within the humanities is rapidly growing, in part due to their ability to investigate our perceived relationship with ecology. Food is a text that conveys identity, reflecting historically grounded or socially constructed attitudes through what is produced and consumed, both gastronomic and printed. Likewise, the connection between nature and culture as manifested in narratives allow us to recognize the discourse and disconnect between society and our environment, marking us through this relationship. Central to both fields is the interplay of humanity and environment, depicted in rural and urban ecologies, e.g. food deserts versus urban food jungles.
ACLA Seattle March 26-29, 2015

NeMLA 2015 46th Annual Convention
Toronto, April 30-May 3, 2015
The Romance of Sidney and Spenser
This seminar explores how Sidney and Spenser engage with and develop the romance framework alongside and against their contemporaries. How do these poets revise, contest, or maintain conventions of romance in their own works? How do they represent and reconcile the genre's tendency toward contradiction, conflation, and multiplicity? How do they influence later authors and contribute to the evolution of the genre and its concerns in the English tradition?
The theme for the 36th annual SWPACA conference is "Many Faces, Many Voices: Intersecting Borders in Popular and American Culture." We invite proposals for individual or panel presentations that consider the theme as it relates to rhetoric and technical communication. We're excited to hear about the ways in which popular and American culture inform the pedagogical, theoretical, and practical work of rhetoric and technical communication. Feel free to interpret the conference theme broadly.
Proposals for individual presentations should not exceed 250 words. Multi-paper panel proposals must include separate abstracts and titles for each individual proposed paper.
Submission deadline: 1 November 2014
