New Elizabethans 1953-2013: Nation, Culture, and Modern Identity
13-15 June 2013

CALL FOR PAPERS
Papers are invited for a major international, interdisciplinary conference to be held at Senate House, London, June 13-15th, 2013. Coinciding with the 60-year anniversary of the Coronation, this conference will explore the ways in which the ideal of a new (or second) Elizabethan age has been variously defined, promoted, and challenged in Britain and the Commonwealth. Following closely after the London Olympics and Jubilee celebrations, it will also offer a fitting opportunity to explore the ways in which these values continue to present themselves in contemporary definitions of national identity, culture, and character.

Labyrinths: Navigating Complexity Across the Humanities [February 15-17, 2013]

updated: 
Tuesday, October 9, 2012 - 4:58pm
McGill University English Graduate Student Association

From ancient Greek mythology to cubism, jazz music, and the contemporary puzzle film, labyrinths serve as images for exploring intellectual, affective, and material complexity. This conference will investigate labyrinths from diverse cultural, aesthetic, and theoretical perspectives. Whether literal or figurative, labyrinths are markers of intricacy that can evoke feelings of panic, bewilderment, and failure, or present opportunities for adventure and problem-solving. You might consider the procedural labyrinths that we encounter daily (mass media, bureaucracy, academia), as well as the spatial labyrinths that we inhabit (libraries, hotels, department stores, casinos).

Duquesne University's English Graduate Organization

With traditionalists hearkening for a return to founding principles while protestors of various stripes look forward to dismantling the very notion of norms themselves, questions about the foundations of societal structures occupy a central place in myriad contemporary debates. For its 3rd conference—(anti)Foundations—the Duquesne University English Graduate Organization invites considerations of societal structures, their foundations, and the ways that these structures are both reinforced and challenged by works of literature and culture.

Exegesis, the academic e-journal of the English Department at Royal Holloway, University of London (www.exegesisjournal.org), is now accepting submissions for the Spring 2013 edition on 'Testimonies and Confessions'. In this issue we seek to generate discussion about the forms that testimonies and confessions have taken historically, theologically, and literarily from an interdisciplinary, cross-period perspective. Authors may choose to investigate this topic literally, metaphorically, or theoretically, and in terms of specific texts, authors, times, or places. Articles and creative pieces might address, but are not limited to, any of the following subjects:
