Misty Krueger / University of Tennessee

The Sixteenth Annual Meeting of the Group for Early Modern Cultural Studies; October 22-25, 2009; Dallas, Texas

Textual Ancestry

In keeping with the GEMCS conference's theme of "tracing footprints," this panel explores how a text's literary ancestors affected the conception, production, and/or dissemination of that text. Papers should examine the impact of textual predecessors on a specific work or body of work, or papers could address how one author's work directly influenced another's. Papers that address all genres and historical periods related to early modern studies are welcome.

Adoption: Secret Histories, Public Policies: Third International Conference on Adoption and Culture

updated: 
Saturday, May 2, 2009 - 10:17am
Marianne Novy/Sally Haslanger/Emily Hipchen/Alliance for the Study of Adoption and Culture

Adoption has often, though not always, involved secrecy. How has secrecy or openness affected the history, experience, and representations of adoption? How have literature and film portrayed the impact of secrecy and disclosure on adoptees, birthparents, adoptive parents? What is the impact of recent revelations of secret histories in memoir, books such as _The Girls Who Went Away_, documentaries such as _First Person Plural_ (the creators of both will be keynote speakers)? How and why did adoption secrecy, and the practices it hides, develop differently in different cultures, countries, and even different states? Where are alternatives to secrecy practiced and how do they work?

Electronic Editions of Early Modern Drama, RSA Conference, Venice, April 8-10, 2010 (Deadline: May 15, 2009)

updated: 
Tuesday, April 28, 2009 - 1:24pm
Brett D. Hirsch, University of Victoria

In his 2007 Shakespeare Survey article, John Jowett commented that "the extent to which scholarly electronic editions will transform Shakespeare study remains to be seen," and that "at the end of the twentieth century" the role of the electronic edition "remained, at most, supplementary to the print edition" (4). This panel seeks to assess Jowett's claim in light of a growing number of projects to produce electronic editions of early modern drama, and to ask whether the electronic edition is still (or indeed, if it ever was) supplementary to the print edition.

Utopian Spaces of British Literature and Culture, 1890-1945

updated: 
Tuesday, April 28, 2009 - 5:20am
English Faculty, University of Oxford (UK)

From the fin de siècle to the Second World War, the construction of alternative social and private spaces exerted a peculiar fascination for many British writers. The cataclysmic historical events of the period stimulated Utopian thinking and feeling even as they seemed to make them problematic or impossible. At the same time radical demands for new spaces, whether political, religious or aesthetic, also generated new ways of reading and writing the familiar urban and domestic spaces of everyday life.

CFP: Actants / Residue (GEMCS 2009, 10/22-25, Dallas); deadline May 13, 2009

Monday, April 27, 2009 - 9:46pm
Lizz Angello / University of South Florida

Self-described "student of science" Bruno Latour defines an actor as "any thing that leaves a trace." In keeping with this year's theme of footprints, this panel welcomes papers that consider the traces left by any thing on the world (whether of humans or non-humans). What buried narratives might we excavate by reading residue? What stories are told by echoes? All approaches are welcome, though eco-critical and material readings may be particularly appropriate. Relevant topics might include:
