April 9, 2016 – Misericordia University (Dallas, PA)
Deadline: October 1, 2015
The Department of Fine Arts and the Department of English at Misericordia University invite submissions of paper and panel proposals (3-4 speakers) that address the theme: Bodies of Art: Music, Literature, and Disability. As part of the university's Medical and Health Humanities initiative, this interdisciplinary conference seeks to bring together scholars of musicology, literature, and related disciplines for a one-day symposium that investigates issues related to:
CFP: Rock and Romanticism (edited anthology)
CFP: Specialists: Passions and Careers (collection Professional Development for Academics)
This essay collection aims at exploring the presence of French plays in Victorian England and their influence and impact upon native dramatists, critics and audiences. By means of scrutinizing the textual strategies used by adaptors either to comply or to divert from the original texts, it intends to illustrate the economic, aesthetic and political tensions existing between both countries throughout the nineteenth century.
Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
The editors invite contributions to Symbolism. An International Annual of Critical Aesthetics, an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to pursuing fundamental questions on the forms and functions of the symbolic. Symbolism publishes high-profile research on topics related to the use of figurative language, thought and signification in artistic expression and representation. While maintaining a strong literary focus, the annual also inquires into practices of the symbolic across discourses in media ranging from the cinema and painting to opera, sculpture and other arts.

Friday 3 July 2015
Van Midert College, Durham University
Keynote Address: '"Harmonious" Jones and "Honest John" Shore: Contrasting Responses of Garden Reach Neighbours to the Experience of India'.
Professor Michael Franklin, University of Swansea
From the proliferation and commodification of print culture in the 18th century to the Forster's Education Act of 1870, those who consumed - and the way people consumed – the arts and culture at large changed irrevocably in England. These factors - among numerous others- culminate Leonard Bast's feeble attempts to fit Ruskin's depictions of Venice to his basement hovel in E.M. Forster's classic Howards End. Bast's story, pushed to the margins of the novel, is primarily that of a working class individual attempting to better his position in life through the arts and culture.
This panel welcomes papers that examine any aspect of Scottish literature and its connection to other arts, in line with this year's conference theme. In particular, this panel is interested in papers that connect Scottish literature to other literatures and other arts of the wider world. By June 15, 2015, please send proposals (300 words maximum), a one-page CV, a brief bio, and any A/V requirements to Tim Hayes, Chowan University, at email@example.com.
