Festivals and Faires:
American Culture, Sub-Culture, and Counter-Culture
This book under contract with Mellen Press, which began with papers from the Popular Culture Association/ American Culture Association Annual Joint Conference, seeks to explore the cultural aspects of festivals and fairs in the United States or the reaction in America to foreign events. The specific focus of the book is to examine how particular festivals and fairs reflect culture, counter-culture, or sub-culture in America. This project includes not only contemporary American festivals, but historical ones as well.
Please submit by 1 September 2010 any questions and a 250-word abstract of your proposed chapter to:
Trans-Scripts – a new interdisciplinary online journal in the Humanities and Social Sciences based at the University of California, Irvine – invites graduate students to submit their work.

We are now delighted to announce two more keynote speakers for the conference, Professor John R. Hall from UC Davies, California, and Dr Patricia Wheeler from the University of Hertfordshire, UK.
We still welcome abstracts for what promises to be an exciting event by the set deadline of 1 September 2010.
Original CFP follows below:
2011 NEMLA Convention in New Brunswick, NJ, April 7-10, 2011. The history play has resisted attempts at definition. How are early modern history plays in conversation with historiography? Is re-telling English history substantively different from re-telling Roman history or continental history? Why was the genre so popular, and what triggered its decline? Who is represented in historical dramas, and who constitutes the "obscene" (offstage) persons of history? How do we reconcile a "Chronicle History of King Lear" with a "Tragedy of Richard II"? Is there something unique to historical drama that separates it from the popular historical poetry or fiction of the period?
Title: Interrogating Complicities: Postcolonial, Queer and the Threat of the Normative
Date: November 19th - 20th, 2010
Time's excesses in music, literature and art
This international conference is intended to explore how time may be represented aesthetically in excessive, eccentric and unthinkable ways. Art appears to have found a means of getting around time's dilemmas by depicting it as irrational or portraying the impossibility of getting a firm grasp of it. In art, time has long been shaped as something out of proportion, excessive, or even violent, which is evidenced by works such as Saturn Devouring his Son.
