BFS Journal 17 is due out in January/Feburary.

The journal is a mix of articles and is keen to accept submissions from people who want to write about fantasy, horror and science fiction. Our focus is primarily the former, but our readers have interests across all three genres.

Academic articles for the BFS Journal should be between 2500 and 6000 words. We prefer nearer the former, as this is about the size of a conference paper. References in the text should be (Author, Date of Edition: Page Number) with a full publication listing for the bibliography given for each article at the end. Please don't use footnotes in your submissions.

The College English Association, a gathering of scholar-teachers in English studies, welcomes proposals for presentations for our 48th annual conference. The conference will be held in Hilton Head, South Carolina from March 30 to April 1, 2017. 

The 2017 theme is "Islands" and CEA invites papers and panels that address the idea of the island.  How are islands in literature and film, as in life, places of desperate refuge and welcome escape?  What respites do they provide? Are islands imagined utopias, or do they offer only barriers and isolation?  Finally, is the study of composition, film, language, literature, and writing, a kind of island amidst the tempest of the current attack on the humanities?

Friday, September 9, 2016 - 1:25pm
Geoffrey Baker / Yale-NUS College
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 23, 2016

How do literary texts use, produce, or complicate the idea of evidence? How do ideas of evidence from other disciplines or fields—from philosophical, legal, or scientific disciplines, for example—provide context for the emergence and treatment of evidence in literary works? How do different forms or standards of evidence, inflected into literary texts, amplify or complicate apparent national, ethnic, sexual, or gender differences? How do texts perform evidentiary inquiry, and how do these modes of inquiry impact the form of the narrative, characterization, and so forth?

Coriolanus in Focus -- NeMLA 2017 Baltimore

Friday, September 9, 2016 - 2:24pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

Shakespeare's late play Coriolanus at first glance seems to be a straightforward case of a haughty patrician whose own pride leads to his loss of stature and life—a tragedy in the classic mold. The majority opinion echoes Olivier who likened him to "a very straightforward, reactionary son of a so-and-so" whose "thoughts are not deep" and Curry who labelled him as "one of the hardest characters to like." However, interesting characters—Shakespeare raised many—resist categorizing.
