Shakespeare and Early Modern Emotion
An International and Interdisciplinary Conference
29 June – 1 July 2011
The Andrew Marvell Centre, The University of Hull
This conference will explore the performance and representation of emotion in the work of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. In the last decade, scholars have been increasingly interested in the cultural history of emotions, arguing that they should be regarded as 'social phenomena' rather than inward experiences. At the same time, we have seen a resurgence of interest in the ethical and philosophical aspects of literary texts, and a return to thinking about ideas of 'human nature'.
The MLA Pinter session welcomes presentations on Pinter's Voice. Presentations on any aspect of Pinter's use of voice, Pinter's voice in modern drama and politics are welcome.
Send 250-word abstracts with title, name, and various addresses to Judith Roof at email@example.com by March 15, 2011.
The MMLA conference theme is "Play . . . No, Seriously," so the theme for the Pinter sessions will be Pinter @ Play. Papers addressing any aspect of play in Pinter, Pinter as performer, and performance in Pinter are welcome.

Call for Contributions: collected essays on censorship and literature in English speaking countries, 16th-21st centuries
With the development of the modern state, there has been an ongoing tension between the will to control and at the same time allow free speech to develop. In English-speaking countries, the theme of "Censorship and Discourse" has been a recurrent concern from the 16th century to the present day, as the numerous censored publications and writings against censorship testify.

Revenge - Probing the Boundaries
Saturday 16th July 2011 - Monday 19th July 2011
Mansfield College, Oxford, United Kingdom
Call for Papers
Revenge, so we are told, is a dish best served cold: a 'sweet' wreaking of vengeance on those who have – either in reality or in our minds – slighted, wronged or in some way 'injured' us and who are now 'enjoying' their just deserts by an avenging angel (or angels) on the great day of reckoning.

The French Graduate Student Association of Columbia University is pleased to announce its 20th Graduate Student conference, to be held March 4th, 2011.
The conference will take as its theme text and image in French and world literatures and art.

Graduate students of all departments are welcome to submit abstracts of 300-500 words, and we especially welcome projects with a comparative focus and/or approach. Possible topics include but are not limited to:

The Right to Vote and the Writing of Voice
The word kol in Hebrew means "voice" as well as "vote", thus implying kol as having the potential for political power. In our seminar we wish to examine the interplay of power and the use of voice/vote: voices creating or deconstructing identities, voices heard or unheard in the literary piece, granted or disowned voices. Who has the right to speak in Hebrew literature? What are the literary means enabling the freedom of speech? How does this relationship of power and voice come into play in the literary piece? What are the places of the muffled, choked voice? What are the places of the loud, screaming voice? How does canonization tune/orchestrate the different voices within literature?
