For this international, interdisciplinary conference, we seek papers that explore how different kinds of literacy, broadly defined, developed around the Atlantic Rim
before the Columbian era; consider the roles of writing, communication, and sign systems in the era of discovery, colonization, and conquest; and/or examine how transatlantic encounters and collisions birthed new literacies and literatures, and transformed existing ones. We will consider aural and visual communication, along with varied metaphorical, cultural, and technological "literacies."

2nd Global Conference
Villains and Villainy

Tuesday 14th September – Thursday 16th September 2010
Oriel College, Oxford

Call for Papers
The hero may always get the bad guy but the bad guys always grab our attention first. Bad guys – both male and female – are almost always the more interesting characters in a tale, whether told via song, film, folktale, novel, theatre, myth, television (live action or animated), or urban legend. Villains can devise and implement or commit their acts of villainy either by their innate sheer genius or employing the dark arts of black magic.
