The global character of Jules Verne's fiction requires no demonstration. Indeed, the work of the prolific French novelist, author of the immensely successful series of the Voyages extraordinaires, appears to deserve an inclusion into the (hypothetical) canon of world literature on at least two accounts.

Seeking essay on Spielberg's Hook.
This ASECS panel, sponsored by the Aphra Behn Society, addresses writings by or about long eighteenth-century women who have crossed the Atlantic Ocean. The panel calls for papers that pay close attention to women's experiences as they travel (by choice or by force) across land and sea and eventually learn how to live in new places under remarkable circumstances. The panel aims to problematize the ideas of location and nationality, so it welcomes papers that complicate the seeming divide between "American" and "British" texts, writers, characters, and subjects. In addition to literary studies, this panel encourages submissions from disciplines such as history, art history, linguistics, gender studies, and oceanic studies.
The editorial team at Studies in the Novel is seeking content for its online archive of indexed teaching tools on the journal's affiliate website. I am seeking pedagogical content that addresses teaching novels using digital humanities tools/perspective. Please consider submitting sample course syllabi, specific assignments, short narrative descriptions of your own experiences, or other appropriate content. I will accept content on an ongoing basis.
