We publish original critical and theoretical essays from B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. students that represent the current work, trends, and thoughts in literary criticism, composition, and rhetoric.
This issue does not have a theme so to encourage representation of a wide array of interests and ideas within the field.
CALL FOR PAPERS
Berkeley Graduate Conference in the History of British Political Thought, 1500-1800
The University of California¬, Berkeley Graduate Conference in the History of British Political Thought, 1500-1800 will take place on Saturday, 23 February. We are inviting papers by graduate students from any discipline on any aspect, theme, or thinker in British Political Thought in the early modern period.
The officers of the Idaho State University English Graduate Student Association invite you to join us for the 8th annual Inter-mountain Graduate Conference at Idaho State University, March 1-2, 2013. The primary theme for this conference is "Growth." Academia is, after all, about growth. We swell with knowledge and experience as we move through the steps from undergraduates to scholars in the field. The discipline grows with us as we contribute our own research. As graduate students we are uniquely involved in the growth of the discipline as we grow ourselves. How are we as graduate students contributing to the growth of the discipline? How has your research contributed to the growth of a specific focus? What new and exciting focus is on the horizon?

'I am a stranger in this world' says the nun, the narrator of a story of a forbidden book by Marguerite Porete. The year is 1340, thirty years after Marguerite was burned at the stake for writing and disseminating her heretical work, The Mirror of Simple Souls. The place is England, a Cistercian nunnery where she tells her story the night before her death, knowing that the book irretrievably changed but also shortened her life. But the idea of being a stranger in the world is not an uncommon one for many other Michele Roberts' characters.

American Literature Association
24th Annual Conference
Conference Location and Dates: Boston, Massachusetts. May 23-26, 2013.
Arthur Miller Society Panel, Theme: Arthur Miller and the Contemporary Mind
Developing from the work of the Belfast-Sarajevo Initiative (2007-2010), the School of Creative Arts at Queen's, in association with the British Academy, is hosting this conference to examine how theatre, performance, film, and the visual arts address post-conflict situations. We will consider proposals that focus on any post-conflict city, or region, and intend the Cities of Memory project to encourage interdisciplinary discussion on the contemporary arts and their relation to issues of testimony, witnessing, forgetting, representation, healing, reconciliation, agency, and metaphor.
