Possible topics: animal-human encounters, pastoral or colonial representations of ecologies/life words, and narratives and poetics of living in common(s). We are interested in papers that attend to the affective, everyday nature of more-than-huamn encounters and eco-spheres, as invoked/mediated in Romantic poetry and Victorian fiction. The extent to which representations of more-than-human publics in 19th-century English literature confound rather than confirm taxonomic thinking, or, more broadly, the ways in which more-than-human publics animate new relations/approaches to eco-criticism, (post-)colonial studies, body politics, posthumanism, more-than-humanism, etc., are of interest to us as well.

Our first round of Regular and Affiliated Group CFPs are now live on our website! Please visit https://samla.memberclicks.net/samla-87-cfps to look through our weekly updated list of panel proposals.
We are still accepting CFP proposals as well.
SAMLA 87 will take place November 13th through 15th, 2015 in Durham, North Carolina. Our topic, "In Concert: Literature and the Other Arts" invites interdisciplinary session proposals that investigate the relationship literature and language hold with their fellow arts.
This is an open topic session, but we especially seek papers that explore the intersections of literature and politics in the Medieval and early modern periods. Please e-mail abstracts to Ashley Bender by March 31.

Transforming Knowledge/Transforming Discourse: Trans Through Writing

Eighth Annual Brooklyn College Graduate English Conference
Keynote Speaker: Michelle Ann Stephens, Rutgers University
The Brooklyn College English department invites proposals for the eighth annual graduate student conference. This year's conference aims to consider what the prefix trans means to us as critical thinkers.
The quint's twenty-sixth issue is issuing a call for theoretically informed and historically grounded submissions of scholarly interest—as well as creative writing, original art, interviews, and reviews of books. The deadline for this call is 25 February 2015—but please note that we accept manu/digi-scripts at any time.
Possible topics: animal-human encounters, pastoral or colonial representations of ecologies/life words, and narratives and poetics of living in common(s). We especially welcome papers attending to the affective, everyday nature of more-than-huamn encounters and eco-spheres, as invoked/mediated in Romantic poetry and Victorian fiction. The diverse, if diffuse, impact this period's representations of more-than-human publics have on contemporary or subsequent readings of nineteenth-century England and its empire, and, more broadly, on animating new relations/approaches to postcolonial studies, green studies, bio-politics, more-than-humanism, etc., are of particular interest to this panel.
