On 29 June 2018, the Critical Poetics Research Group at Nottingham Trent University will host a symposium on the ‘Unidentifiable Literary Object’. Speakers include: Clare Connors (University of East Anglia), Marie-Dominique Garnier (University of Paris VIII), Laurent Milesi (Shanghai Jiao Tong University), Nicholas Royle (University of Sussex), Judith Still (University of Nottingham), Sarah Wood (University of Kent). We hope that Hélène Cixous and Eric Prenowitz (University of Leeds) will also be able to join us via Skype.
rhetoric and composition
I would like to put together an Association of Writers and Writing Programs panel. I am unsure about the topic. The first panel I am putting together this year is for the 10th anniversary of my Anaphora Literary Press, a reading for some of the writers. I would like to put together a second panel with folks that I am not affiliated with, so anybody reading this post. The panel can be a reading, or a discussion on the profession, or a discussion on the writing craft. Maybe a panel of independent publishers to discuss the problems we face in this field. Maybe a panel of academics (I previously taught college English for over 4 years) to talk about teaching creative/writing.
DEADLINE EXTENDED: JUNE 13, 2018.

The Wooden O Symposium (Auguest 6-8, 2018) invites panel and paper proposals on any topic related to the text and performance of Shakespeare’s plays. The conference seeks papers/panels that investigate our 2018 theme: Shakespeare and The Other. Topics could range from marginalized characters, underdogs, and outliers, to inclusivity or diversity in the works of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. We welcome unique interpretations of this theme.
Critical Theories of Education (CTE) 2018
Critical theories have traditionally problematized the current and past states of our educational institutions. For this year’s conference, however, we ask participants to explore the potential future(s) of educational theory and practice.
What can critical theories tell us about the future of education?
Papers, panels, and workshops addressing any of the following are welcome:
Critical pedagogy, history of education, education and social change, movement pedagogy, philosophy of education, critical theory, Marxist educational research, race and education, gender oppression, or other related themes.
