Each year, the Bibliographical Society of America (BSA) invites three scholars in the early stages of their careers to present twenty-minute papers on their current, unpublished research in the field of bibliography as members of a panel at the BSA's Annual Meeting, which takes place in New York City in late January. The New Scholars Program seeks to promote the work of scholars who are new to the field of bibliography, broadly defined to include any research that deals with the creation, production, publication, distribution, reception, transmission, and subsequent history of texts as material objects (print or manuscript).

As humans, we are continually examining how to position ourselves spatially, aesthetically, emotionally, intellectually, and practically in our environments. Today, we face these tasks with new urgency as the devastating impact of global climate change stimulates renewed scholarly focus on the environment. From Ecocriticism to Posthumanism to Deep Ecology studies, the humanities are engaged in a multi-disciplinary effort to understand how humans interact with natural and built environments. This conference aims to engage with and foster discussions around the complex and historically situated ways in which we imagine and inhabit the environment.

SAMLA/THE JOSEPH CONRAD SOCIETY OF AMERICA

For the 86th South Atlantic Modern Language Association (SAMLA) conference in Atlanta November 7-9, 2014: While taking into consideration the special focus for SAMLA 86, we will consider the importance of artfully and effectively introducing Conrad to undergraduates. Making Conrad authentic, pertinent, and interesting for students as we go forward can contribute to the goal of sustainability in the Humanities. How might such lesson be designed? What might a student-centered class period (or several periods) devoted to a Conrad story look like for the student? What sequence of activities might the facilitator, the professor, choose to guide the students in a way that allows them to make crucial discoveries about Conrad on their own?

Reconstruction, Restoration, Conservation: Reconciling the Past through word and image - DEADLINE EXTENDED

'Renaissance literary works are no longer regarded either as a fixed set of texts…that contain their own determinate meanings or as a stable set of reflections of historical facts that lie beyond them…rather they are made up and constantly redrawn by artists, audiences, and readers. These collective social constructions on the one hand define the range of aesthetic possibilities within a given representational mode and, on the other, link that mode to the complex network of institutions, practices and beliefs that constitute the culture as a whole.'
Stephen Greenblatt, The Power of Forms in the English Renaissance (1982)
