The VSAO executive invites proposals for 20-minute papers to be presented at the Association's 46th annual conference on 27 April 2013. The conference theme will be "Victorian Play(s): Excess and Expression." The venue will be Glendon College, York University, Toronto.
For quite some time, I have been interested in/incensed by the scholarly publication system; the exclusions, iniquities and absurdities of it can be clearly seen from only a brief survey of the economic field. I have watched with despair as the sciences have made projects work while the humanities and social sciences have almost sleepwalked into a disaster. The Finch Report published in the UK and accepted by the government will wreak havoc on our modus operandi and work to stratify an already split field.

But in the midst of the long row there hangs a canvas which differs from the others. . . . on this one plate no name is inscribed, and the linen within the frame is snow-white from corner to corner, a blank page.

The Shakespeare Association of Korea invites papers exploring topics and issues of "Shakespeare in Global/Local Contexts" for its 2013 international conference to be held on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of its foundation. The conference aims to bring together scholars, actors, directors, and teachers of Shakespeare to discuss academic, theatrical, and pedagogical issues of Shakespeare in global/local contexts. Topics of discussion may include (but not restricted to):
Performance/ Stage History and Reception/ Dramaturgy
Politics/ Religion/ Ethics
Issue 19: Surface/Depth
'There are no beautiful surfaces without a terrible depth.'
- Friedrich Nietzsche
'The world thereby momentarily loses its depth and threatens to become a glossy skin, a stereoscopic illusion, a rush of filmic images without density. But is this now an terrifying or an exhilarating experience?''
- Fredric Jameson
Philament, the peer-reviewed online journal of the arts and culture affiliated with the University of Sydney, invites postgraduate students and early-career scholars to submit academic papers and creative works for a forthcoming issue on the theme of Surface/Depth. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
This conference will examine the themes of Negotiation and Renegotiation in any area of French or Italian Studies. We shall examine such questions as: How do authors negotiate between seemingly
conflicting themes or positions? How do texts negotiate between genres, periods, and styles? How do speakers negotiate meaning within and across languages/dialects? How do language learners negotiate acquisition?
Peer English (ISSN 1746-5621) is a refereed, open-access online journal produced by members of the School of English. Issued once a year since 2006, its remit is to publish leading research from academics at the very beginnings of their careers (graduate study, post-doctoral research) through to those already established within the community. This approach also includes the notion of 'work in progress' and we welcome contributions of high academic standards from those currently involved in active research, be they doctoral candidates or Heads of Departments.
