Kate Chopin International Society

The Kate Chopin International Society welcomes proposals for two panels to be held at the 2016 ALA Conference in San Francisco, May 26-29, 2016.

The first panel, a roundtable on "Teaching Kate Chopin in Different Contexts," seeks short (seven- to eight-minute) papers/remarks that address either teaching Chopin juxtaposed with works/genres or in courses with which she is not always associated or in educational settings such as continuing education programs, prisons, women's shelters, literacy programs, or online programs. We also welcome proposals that suggest innovative technological approaches to teaching Chopin's works. Proposals should include a title, your name and affiliation, and a paragraph about your proposed remarks.

The Poetics of Place: Performing Selves In and Beyond Cities March 10-11 2016

Monday, November 2, 2015 - 2:13pm
13th Annual Université de Montréal English Graduate Conference

In The Production of Space, Henri Lefebvre describes the city as "a production and reproduction of human beings by human beings." This conference aims to explore the poetics of (non)urban spaces and the city as a catalyst for self-making and -unmaking in the various localized manifestations of the self in literature and art. We envision metropolitan, (post)industrial, rural, etc. spaces as socially inflected images with the performative self at the core of their becoming.

[UPDATE] In More's Footsteps: Utopia and Science Fiction

updated: 
Sunday, November 1, 2015 - 4:40pm
Foundation: The International Review of Science Fiction

We have extended the deadline for this special issue of the journal. Next year marks the 500th anniversary of Sir Thomas More's seminal work, Utopia. Although the text has been of importance within Renaissance Studies and political philosophy, it has also occupied a special place within science fiction for helping to popularise the notion of 'the Great Good Place' to which society should strive to perfect. Whether directly or indirectly, More's text has been of huge significance for the utopian strand that runs through much science fiction.

We invite contributors to submit 6000 word articles on any aspect of More's text and its relationship to modern and contemporary science fiction. Topics might include (but are not limited to):

"Teaching Romanticism: Shakespearean Legacies"

Sunday, November 1, 2015 - 4:24pm
Romantic Textualities

"Teaching Romanticism: Shakespearean Legacies"

As part of the ongoing series, Teaching Romanticism, we will consider Shakespeare's influence on Regency-era editors, essayists, novelists, poets, and forgers. It would be particularly useful to hear about which texts educators use and in what context, whether they place certain poems or prose works against those of Shakespeare, or connect these texts via contemporary works or theoretical practices…. or something else entirely!

Salient details:Individual entries can of course vary (as it's an online blog), but a typical entry should be about 200-400 words in length. Entries generally take an hour to write up.
