International Pynchon Week: Pynchon on the Edge
Greek capital Athens hosts the first International Pynchon Week since the release of his eighth novel, Bleeding Edge. Here on the edges of the Mediterranean, of the European Union, of Western History, we have an opportunity not only to discuss the new novel, but also to reconsider the outer limits and internal limitations of the whole field of Pynchon studies. Paper proposals on any aspect of Pynchon's work, life, thought and significance are welcome, but particular weight will be given to proposals that contribute deliberately to a fresh demarcation of these edges.
This special Spring 2015 issue of Interdisciplinary Humanities will focus on Alfred Hitchcock, the "master of suspense" whose career spanned from the 1920s to the 1970s. Hitchcock produced and directed over fifty motion pictures, in addition to hosting two anthology series on television. His film craftsmanship is still relevant today, as his influence is continuously cited by contemporary filmmakers and he is regularly taught in cinema classes. For this special issue, we will be looking for scholarly articles, book reviews, and nonfiction essays that explore various aspects of Hitchcock's work and personal life, and how the two often connected: music, television, gender, humor, voyeurism, film history, or film theory, to name just a few.
Call for proposals for panels and papers.

The history of small and micro presses in Canada is, in part, an exploration of creative modes of distributing literature. Many of these presses extend the modernist injunction to "make it new" to modes of publishing and to modes of distribution. In Cerberus (1952), the first title from Contact Press and a pivotal publication in Canadian small press, Raymond Souster declares, "the big thing is to get it across, 'make contact'" (75). Making contact for small and micro presses often requires navigating the space between writer and reader in new and creative ways. We seek papers that ask how small and micro press literature has been distributed, historically and in our contemporary moment.
