This Rough Magic (www.thisroughmagic.org) is a journal dedicated to the art of teaching Medieval and Renaissance Literature.

"Shakespeare's Blood"

Julius Caesar mocks his wife's ominous dream:

did run pure blood: and many lusty Romans
Came smiling and did bathe their hands in it." (2.2.76-79)

The conference now has a new website - see here for details:

http://wl2012.weebly.com/

This conference calls for papers which take as their focus the dialogic, collective, and interpersonal sides of Lewis's oeuvre – in words as much as in paint. All topics will be considered. Please send max. 250-word abstracts to Nathan Waddell and Louise Kane (Conference Organizers) at wyndhamlewis2012@hotmail.co.uk by 1 October 2012.

We are also happy to receive (in addition to single papers) proposals for themed panels of 3 speakers.

Durham University, 9-11 April 2013

'[T]he poets of the nineties were entirely missed out of my personal history […] I never read any of these people until it was much too late for me to get anything out of them'.
