Extreme(ly) Shakespeare(an)
The 36th Annual Ohio Valley Shakespeare Conference
Marietta College
October 18-20, 2012

The planning committee of the Ohio Valley Shakespeare Conference seeks proposals for papers or panels from across today's theoretical and methodological landscape that engage some facet of the amalgam "Extreme(ly) Shakespeare(an)."

"Extreme Shakespeare" alludes to the wide variety of extremities that can be found in Shakespeare's work. It brings to mind those occasions where the playwright demonstrates either a lack of regard for or a lack of control over the principles of proportionality and balance, to the degree either of those principles were prioritized by dramatists of the early modern period.

CFP MLA 2013 -- The Cognitive Neuroscience of Attention

updated: 
Tuesday, March 6, 2012 - 9:17pm
MLA Cognitive Approaches to Literature Division

The Cognitive Neuroscience of Attention
We invite abstracts for a session focusing on the neuroscience of attention. How do recent developments in understanding perception and focus relate to research on reading processes? What do readers miss, what do they foreground and why? How do priming effects from marketing and commercialism, for example, direct attention? What do studies on lack of attention (e.g., ADHD) contribute to the discussion?

Please send a 300-word abstract and brief CV by March 15 to both Julien Simon jjsimon@indiana.edu and Elizabeth Nixon nixon.94@osu.edu
