The Lehigh English Department's second annual Literature and Social Justice Graduate Conference will take place on Lehigh's campus in Bethlehem, PA, on March 4th-5th, 2016. We will be accepting proposals from Master's and Doctoral students on this year's conference theme, public humanities. Public humanities takes literature and social justice out of the confines of the classroom or academic publication by balancing theoretical concepts with practical actions and projects that benefit others in order to expand participation in and appreciation for the humanities.
Contributions are invited for Jadavpur University Essays and Studies (JUES), Vol . 30, due to be published in late 2016. JUES is peer reviewed (ISSN number: 0975-3478) and contributions are being accepted till December 31, 2015.
The theme of this issue is
MATERIALITY AND CULTURAL LIFE IN EARLY MODERN EUROPE
We welcome contributions touching on any aspect of this broad theme. The following areas have been identified as being significant, but this list is not intended to be complete or restrictive. It is expected however that a concern about or awareness of the significance of material cultures will be demonstrated in the contribution.

CFP: Temporal Discombobulations: Time and the Experience of the Gothic
Gothic Temporalities Group in conjunction with the University of Surrey
22-24 August 2016 University of Surrey United Kingdom
Our experience of the Gothic is one founded in time. Whether it is of a past that will not or cannot die, multiple presents that can never resolved, or infinite futures that can never be realised it speaks of a temporal excess that refuses to be contained.
Research papers and manuscripts are invited for consideration of publication in the regular issue- VOL. 3 NO. 4 (2015) ISSUE- DECEMBER OF the Journal SOCRATES. Deadline: November 20, 2015. Information For Authors is available on :
Authors can also use the quick submit portal available on the footer of the website.
Proposals are invited for papers ruminating on aspects of digestion in early modern literature, culture, and medicine. Participants might consider, for example, the relationship between literal and figurative digestion in the context of theories about the nexus of body and language more generally; the relationship between digestion and cognition or emotion; the ideological underpinnings of discourses of specific digestive organs or aspects of digestion like assimilation, excretion, indigestion, or vomiting; or the significance of specific kinds of digestion, like anthropophagy, to identity. Papers might also explore medical texts by writers like Sanctorius, Paracelsus, or Van Helmont.
