updated: 
Thursday, December 6, 2012 - 9:32am
The La Verne Shakespeare Center, University of La Verne

Is the Merchant of Venice a plea for tolerance or a sanction for revenge? Is it a late early comedy or an early problem play? How does it reflect (or seem to reflect) upon our own situation—ie. our ongoing banking crises, religious tensions, and cultural transitions?

Keynote Speaker: Eric Mallin, University of Texas, at Austin

Papers can consider but are not limited to the following topics:

recent stage and film versions
Pedagogical approaches in the inclusive, multicultural classroom
Early comedy vs. "problem play"
Relation to other Renaissance plays
The ongoing financial crisis
Cross-dressing
Male relationships

Graduate Conference

"Between two worlds life hovers like a star, twixt night and morn, upon the horizon's verge." – Lord Byron

This conference is interested in exploring the concept of the spaces between – genres, cultures, times, people, movements, nations – the possibilities are endless. How do these spaces confine? How do they enable? What moves between? What exists within?

[UPDATE] Approaches to Teaching American Ethnic Literatures in the 21st Century/edited text/Proposal Deadline: January , 14, 201

Wednesday, December 5, 2012 - 6:22pm
Helane Androne/Miami University of Ohio

I'm seeking contributors to a collection of essays that consider innovative teaching practices for engaging students with American ethnic literatures. The text is approved for contract with a publisher.

Text Summary and Overview
Contemporary ethnic American award winning authors like Edwidge Danticat, Junot Diaz, and Jhumpa Lahiri have interpreted and provoked self-legitimization of the varied realms of ethnic experience and memory in American society. Ethnic American literatures present an ongoing dialogue between ethnic individual and mainstream culture, history, class, religion, politics and sexuality. All of these issues are at play for teachers attempting to establish ethnically inclusive literary curriculums.

MadLit 2013: Between Surface and Depth, February 28-March 1, 2013

updated: 
Wednesday, December 5, 2012 - 11:33am
University of Wisconsin-Madison

The University of Wisconsin-Madison's ninth annual Graduate Conference on Language and Literature (MadLit) will be held February 28–March 1, 2013. This year's conference, "Between Surface and Depth," investigates how humanistic disciplines articulate notions of superficiality and depth in their scholarly practices. Building from the debates surrounding Stephen Best and Sharon Marcus's "Surface Reading: An Introduction" (Representations 108.1 (Fall 2009): 1–21), this conference will explore the implications of using spatial models to conceptualize the location of meaning in language, literature, and discourse.
