Announcing a call for papers for the Eighteenth-Century English Literature session(s) at the 65th annual Rocky Mountain Modern Language Association Conference, Oct. 6-8, 2011, in Scottsdale, Arizona. The conference will be hosted by Arizona State University.

We invite fifteen-minute paper submissions focusing on any aspect of English literature in the eighteenth century. Last year's panel included the elegiac in Charlotte Smith's poetry, political economy in Defoe's novels, the narrative theory of Hogarth's engravings, and utility and pleasure in Francis Burney's letters and fiction. Papers on all authors, genres, and periods within the period will be considered, as we hope to create a pastiche of scholarship.

Forum Journal CfP: Issue 12 - Authenticity (Deadline 14 February 2011)

updated: 
Thursday, December 9, 2010 - 4:43pm
Forum: The University of Edinburgh's Postgraduate Journal of Culture and the Arts

The idea of 'authenticity' assumes that a work can be 'genuine', 'authoritative', 'legitimate': rooted in fact or truth. Yet the possibility of 'authentic' representation has always been haunted by the prospect of its antithesis, the 'fake' or fraud, and both have become increasingly difficult to define in our globalising world. We (re)adapt the notion of authenticity to our own lives and cultures, while the very act of declaring something 'authentic' may be construed as a form of dominance and/or rebellion. Although many theoretical perspectives have questioned the validity of 'authenticity' as a framework within aesthetic and cultural fields, it continues to inflect our understanding of past and present.

The Importance of Kitsch, deadline January 31, 2011

Modern Horizons Journal

For the April 2011 edition of Modern Horizons we invite essays that explore the various intellectual, artistic, emotional, and political manifestations of kitsch in our time.

In our current culture, the word 'kitsch' has come to be associated often with tacky souvenirs and cheap trinkets. However, there is a thicker sense given to the word by various thinkers and authors in the twentieth century, even if it is regularly connected with an idea of culture.

The Great War: From Memory to History

An Inter-disciplinary Conference at The University of Western Ontario

10-12 November, 2011

There are now only a handful of surviving veterans of the Great War. Within a few years, we will lose even those who lived through the war as children on the home front. At that point, the war will pass from memory to history. This critical transition is at the heart of an international conference that seeks to examine the experience of the Great War from a wide range of disciplines and perspectives, including the humanities, the social sciences, and the arts.

A series of questions guide our discussions:

[UPDATE] The Task of the Critic: March 25-26, 2011

updated: 
Wednesday, December 8, 2010 - 4:25pm
Yale University

What is at stake when we read a text? What do we mean when we call ourselves literary critics or practitioners of critical theory, literary theory, or men and women of letters? This conference calls out to those who practice close reading and invites them to reflect on what happens in the critical moment of reading. We are preoccupied with the question of the status of the material produced by the reader of texts. What is the task of the writer of "secondary literature"? Beyond questions of a particular critic's adherence to a given methodological approach, what does it mean to suggest that the critic has a calling?
