updated: 
Tuesday, April 24, 2012 - 9:39am
Indiana College English Association

Faculty and graduate students are invited to submit polished papers dealing with civil strife in its myriad thematic forms. Selected articles will be published in 2013 in a special volume as part of a conference series published by Cambridge Scholars Publishers. This call is for articles within English and the humanities as well as the social sciences and other connected fields of inquiry that allow 'civil strife' to be examined from a wide array of perspectives. The following list proposes a series of topics and themes that allow for theoretical, practical, and pedagogical inquiries and is certainly not exhaustive. Based on submissions received, this monograph publication will focus on selected areas.

[Deadline Reminder] Captivity Writing Unbound, October 11-13, 2012

updated: 
Sunday, April 22, 2012 - 12:55pm
University of South Alabama / Department of English

Proposals for panels and papers are invited for a conference entitled "Captivity Writing Unbound," to be hosted by the University of South Alabama's Department of English and held at its Baldwin County campus, which is set in the heart of the quaint artist community of Fairhope, overlooking scenic Mobile Bay. As conference organizers, we envision a relatively concentrated event in which select scholars working in various disciplines and historical periods will present new ideas about the general area of writing and captivity. We are particularly interested in papers that explore and extend the traditional boundaries of the study of captivity writing, whether these are conceived generically, geographically, historically, or in disciplinary terms.

[CALL FOR ANTHOLOGY ARTICLES] Marxian Cartographies: Mapping and Re-drawing the Trace

updated: 
Saturday, April 21, 2012 - 4:11pm
Anthony C. Cooke/Emory University

At present, capitalism seems to enjoy a certain status as the last remaining "ideological superpower" in the global arena; however, many committed scholars, activists, writers, philosophers, and others continue to seek new avenues for humanistic engagement even as corporate and political interests work to circumscribe the academic community's contributions to issues affecting the public sphere. Such imagining of alternative epistemologies is the focus of an edited volume currently under consideration at Cambridge Scholars Publishing, entitled, Marxian Cartographies: Mapping and Re-drawing the Trace.
