CALL FOR PAPERS: University of York Centre for Modern Studies Third Annual Interdisciplinary Postgraduate Symposium
Commercial speech – advertising – makes up most of what we share as a culture . . . As the language of commercialism has become louder, the language of high culture has become quieter.
– James B. Twitchell, Twenty Ads that Shook the World
The California Journal of Women Writers is a new online journal featuring original reviews and criticism of women's literature from across North America, as well as interviews with authors and commentary on critiques published elsewhere. We do not focus on any one type of literature, as long as the text is written by a female author and is of interest to TCJWW editors.
Our intent is to provide a space for enthusiastic dialogue supporting a wide variety of women writers. We invite our readers to unite, discuss, and join our conversation with insightful comments. This is a space devoted to fostering and enhancing the visibility of North American female authors.
Call for Papers for Collection: Captivity / Writing / Unbound
Proposals for papers are invited for a collection entitled Captivity / Writing / Unbound. We are particularly interested in papers that explore and extend the traditional boundaries of the study of captivity writing—such writing conceived generically, geographically, historically, or in disciplinary terms—and that do so through a triangulation of the three operant terms: Captivity, Writing, Unbound.
Roundtable Participants: Priscilla Wald (Duke University; Past President of ASA), Nick Bromell (UMass- Amherst), and Sut Jhally (UMass-Amherst)
