English Graduate Conference on Literature

Shakespeare:
Pedagogy, Scholarship, and Performance

April 14-15, 2010
University of Central Arkansas

When Ben Jonson wrote that William Shakespeare was "not of an age, but for all time," he could not have realized the full impact of his words. Nearly 400 years after his death, the bard still mesmerizes us. We invite papers on any aspect of Shakespearean studies.

Though the conference theme centers on Shakespeare, we also welcome submissions on any topic related to all genres of literature, theory, culture, and film, as well as creative submissions of poetry, fiction, and drama.

Computers and Writing 2011 - "Writing in Motion: Traversing Public/Private Spaces" CFP due Nov 15, 2010

updated: 
Tuesday, November 2, 2010 - 9:43am
full name / name of organization: 
Sweetland Center for Writing - University of Michigan

Writing is in motion as never before: students text one another on the go and around the clock; colleagues and friends use wikis to brainstorm and to co-author important documents; choreographers and filmmakers use motion-capture technology to "write down" movement and gesture; and poets invent new multimedia poetic forms. The places we write, and the features of the writing we value, are today more varied – and often more contested – than ever before.

We welcome proposals in a variety of formats that interpret the conference themes from multiple perspectives. Regardless of format (see Session Types below), each proposal should provide the following:

POLITICS, PERFORMANCE AND POPULAR CULTURE IN NINETEENTH-CENTURY BRITAIN

7-9 JULY 2011

To be held at the Storey Institute, Lancaster.

This is advanced notice of the second conference held under the auspices of our AHRC-sponsored project 'Cultural History of English Pantomime, 1837-1902'.

We welcome proposals for 30 minute papers which explore the connections between politics and popular culture, 1820-1910. In particular, we are interested in examining the extent to which popular theatre can reveal public perceptions of contemporary social and political issues. And conversely, how might popular entertainment influence and shape contemporary political debate?

We have decided to create a NEW CATEGORY in our first issue and would like to invite you to have a look beyond the silver screen. Hence, the new category is named "BEYOND THE SCREEN" and shall include topics (one or two articles per issue) which are loosely connected with films, like performance, music, dance, visual culture, literature, or television. These ties should not be too vague and the article ought to be somehow connected with the cinema. Thus we expand our call due to this category.

The CfP for URBAN/RURAL in non-western cinema is still running till 1st of December and we are eagerly waiting for your proposals. Here to remember:
