"If the authentic test for a great novel is rereading, and the joys of yet further rereading, then Pride and Prejudice can rival any novel ever written." — Harold Bloom One of the most popular works of fiction in English literature, Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice (1813) has withstood the tests of time and has been revisited time and again with renewed critical engagements, adaptations and popular celebration. Regardless to say, several tomes have been dedicated to this particular work over the years, and many more continue to be produced with consistency that engage with the novel across areas such as the application of literary theories, in the context of cultural studies or even popular culture.
DEADLINE EXTENDED to February 22, 2015
Dates: June 11–13, 2015
Location: University of Northern Iowa, Cedar Falls, IA

The North American Review, the longest-lived literary magazine in the United States, is pleased to announce that it is now accepting submissions to its Bicentennial Creative Writing & Literature Conference, to be held on the campus of the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls, IA, June 11-13, 2015. The editors invite proposals for individual papers, pre-formed panels (3-4 panelists), or roundtable discussions (4-6 participants).
Our proposed collection aims to explore the meanings of crossover in the eighteenth century. The concept of crossover grew out of the uneasy reconcilement between the era's belief in the absoluteness of taxonomical categories and its paradoxical insistence on the potential malleability and manipulability of the same. Sweeping changes in the cultural scene challenged the seeming discreteness between conceptual kinds, and unleashed the possibility of transcending boundaries of all sorts.
This International Conference is an annual academic event organized by Cankaya University in Ankara, Turkey. This year it will be organized jointly by Süleyman Demirel University (Isparta, Turkey) and Çankaya University, and will be hosted by Süleyman Demirel University on May 7-8, 2015 in Isparta, TURKEY.

What comes after extinction? Our predominant understanding of extinction today relates to natural species extinctions caused largely by human actions. But in the twenty-first century categorical distinctions between humans and nonhumans or culture and nature are no longer tenable—if they ever really were. Indeed as Darwin was not even the first to note, mass extinction events preceded the appearance of humans on the planet.
