The School of English - The University of Sheffield holds an interdisciplinary research conference on Thursday 19 May 2016, entitled Scheherazade in Classical, Modern and Postmodern Worlds.
INQUIS is an online, biannual, blind peer-reviewed journal which offers graduate students in the field of literatures in English a chance to make their research known internationally. Considering that literary studies as a field of scholarly study has undergone tremendous changes and challenges, both the practice and theory of literary studies certainly need a thorough scrutiny under the light of new perspectives, new approaches, new interpretations as well as new insights. By including the works of graduate researchers, the journal primarily aims to promote dialogue and to serve as an international forum for young academics and researchers where they can share their ideas and contribute globally to the discussions on studies of literatures in English.
Call for contributors: Where is Adaptation? A few (3-4) more articles needed, particularly those focusing in some way on marginalized countries, artists, cultures, works, or material.
The English Language Conference seeks papers from scholars in all fields of English, including but not limited to Literature, Rhetoric and Composition, TESL, Creative Writing, and Education. This year's theme is "First Contact." We are looking for stories of first encounters with uncharted themes and outlying characters, texts, and authors.

William Castle will likely forever be remembered first as "The Master of Gimmicks" and "The Abominable Showman": the director of exciting gimmick films like Macabre (1958), House on Haunted Hill (1959), The Tingler (1959), 13 Ghosts (1960), Homicidal (1961) and Mr. Sardonicus (1961), and the maestro behind the Emergo, Percepto and Illusion-O, the punishment poll and the life insurance policy against death by fright. But there was much more to his Hollywood career than this cycle, however innovative and indelible it may have been. He directed more than fifty films between 1944 and 1974, and produced both The Lady from Shanghai (1947) and Rosemary's Baby (1968).
This panel considers the numerous ways in which the work of William Carlos Williams engages with socio-economic and political formations in the United States. Ranging from Williams's literary and political sympathies throughout his medical and literary career, we seek papers making a contribution to either Williams's studies or U.S. literary history in general. As the titles suggests, this panel is open to consider papers on other topics that tackle similar or relevant questions of concern in academia today.
This international conference is designed to address the questions of Beckett as a figure of world literature and world literature as figured in Beckett. We would like to invite papers, presentations, and performances from students, academics, artists and fellow enthusiasts on the following topics, although participants should not consider themselves restricted by these:
• Beckett's influence, reception and circulation across disciplines
• Rethinking global modernism in the light of his works
• Beckett as a selftranslator and studies of Beckett in translation
• Cinematographic and theatrical adaptations of Beckett's plays
• The intercultural, sociological, and political dissemination of Beckett's work
At the outset of their landmark work, Remediation: Understanding New Media, Jay David Bolter and Richard Grusin explain the "double logic" of remediation accordingly: "Our culture wants both to multiply its media and to erase all traces of mediation: ideally, it wants to erase its media in the very act of multiplying them." Indeed, our culture is increasingly "hypermediated," even as we see more and more calls for immediacy.
