Comparative Caribbeans: an Interdisciplinary Conference*
Emory University, Atlanta GA
November 3-5, 2011
This is why we stay with poetry. And despite our consenting to all the indisputable technologies; despite seeing the political leap that must be managed..., the full load of knowledge to be tamed..., at the bow there is still something we now share: this murmur, cloud or rain or peaceful smoke. …We cry our cry of poetry. Our boats are open, and we sail them for everyone.
– Édouard Glissant

Contemporary Trends in Poetry in English/translations
In the 21st century a perception or rather an apprehension sometimes surfaces that poetry will have a slow death in the techno-consumerist world. But contrary to apprehension poetry has survived and is thriving everywhere—in all forms of print and electronic media. In our next issue of the Rupkatha Journal on Interdisciplinary Studies in Humanities, we would like to explore various aspects of contemporary poetry in English/translations from different parts of the world.
Design. Innovation. Story: an Odyssey of Confluence
Leading academics, designers, professionals and artists will gather at Savannah College of Art and Design for the International Digital Media and Art Association's ninth annual conference, to explore how digital media and art is a confluence of creative innovations. The conference will include pre-conference workshops, keynote and plenary presentations, panel discussions, a juried art exhibition highlighting creative research in interactive media and digital arts, topical discussions focused both on current trends in the industry and also on evolving pedagogy in academia, and social and networking events.
Fantastic Narratives and the Natural World
Ishaan Literary Review is a new online journal of poetry, short fiction and dramatic works (including plays and screen plays).
We publish (roughly) 50% invited authors and 50% blind read/peer reviewed authors three times a year (Winter, Spring and Summer). We believe that readers should have a chance to see more than just one work by an author, so we will try to publish multiple works by the same author in each issue.
Please email your work as a Word document attachment. All works should be included in a SINGLE file with page breaks between individual works and titles for individual works clearly identifiable.

Keynote: Professor Liam Kennedy (University College Dublin)
The British Association of American Studies (BAAS) welcomes papers for its annual postgraduate conference, to be held at the University of Birmingham on November 12th, 2011.
The general theme of the conference is 'American Frontiers'. The notion of the frontier has permeated the history of the United States, from colonial expansion to the optimistic rhetoric of the Kennedy administration. Moreover, the meaning of 'America' and its place within the world has been a site of ongoing negotiation in geographic, political, economic, military, intellectual and cultural terms.
