Due to the weather in the northeast last week, 'Coming Home' has been rescheduled and will now be held on Saturday, March 16. Due to the rescheduling, we have extended the deadline for proposals addressing the question of what it means to come home. What is a home, and what does the idea of being "at home" signify? What are the potential problems or benefits of being removed from home?

CALL FOR PAPERS
The Colloquium in American Literature and Culture (CALC) at New York University is pleased to announce a Call for Papers for our Fall 2012 events. CALC is a forum for the presentation and discussion of new Americanist scholarship by both junior and senior researchers. CALC encourages paper proposals by graduate students and faculty that focus on any subject or period relevant to American literature and culture.
Keynote Speaker :
Prof. Diarmuid Ó Giolláin (University of Notre-Dame)
In a Higher Education context where originality in research is increasingly valorised, what place is there for explicitly re-presentational practices such as scholarly editing and curating? At first glance, the REF2014 landscape would seem favourable. The panel guidelines recognise "scholarly editions", "databases" and "electronic resources" as outputs, and promote "the creation of archival or specialist collections to support the research infrastructure". Edition and curation also produce tangible results—including printed and digital texts, catalogues and exhibitions—that can impact beyond the academy, preserving and presenting materials for a general audience. But what is the value of these activities and how can it be measured?
