Re-conceptualizing Cartography: Space-Time Compression and Narrative Mapping
University of South Florida Graduate Conference
13–14 April 2012
Warscapes is an independent online magazine that provides a lens into current conflicts across the world. Warscapes publishes fiction, non-fiction, poetry, interviews, book and film reviews, photo-essays and retrospectives of war literature from the past fifty years. It is is motivated by a need to move past a void within mainstream culture in the depiction of people and places experiencing staggering violence, and the literature they produce.
We are looking for book reviewers interested in writing about fiction, poetry, non-fiction and graphic novels. We have a list of titles that you could choose from or you could suggest a relevant work published within a year from now and we will consider it.

"…Do not be afraid to say revolution!"
2012 marks the 40th Anniversary of two of John Berger's major works: the novel G., winner of the Booker and James Tait Black Memorial Prizes, and the collaborative, SFTA/BAFTA-winning BBC TV series and book Ways of Seeing. In celebration, the Centre for Life-Writing Research at King's College, London, and the Department of English & Drama at the British Library – home, since 2009, to the major collection of Berger's papers – are holding a series of events.
The conference will be based at King's College London, with an evening of discussion and celebration at the British Library on Friday 7 September 2012.
Call for papers
This special session for the 2012 PAMLA Conference seeks papers that address constructions, representations, and interpretations of dreams and dreamlike states. What extent do we have control over our dreams? What is the purpose of dreaming, if such purpose exists? What of other, dream-like altered states of consciousness?
This session welcomes papers from across the disciplines. Please use the PAMLA 2012 site to submit a proposal before Saturday, March 31, 2012.
Exploring I–Lands: Borders, Identity and Myth
The University of Virginia Department of English Graduate Conference

Graduate students are hybrid creatures in academia: we are both educators and students, innovators and learners. As we strive to master the foundational knowledges of our disciplines, we also challenge preconceptions, explore neglected or newly discovered areas, rethink our assumptions; ultimately, we create new knowledge.
This year, the Virginia Tech English Graduate Student Organization (EGSO) warmly invites our colleagues from all disciplines to share the ways in which they are revising, reforming, and recreating accepted disciplinary knowledge to form the next generation of scholarship. We welcome interdisciplinary approaches and also encourage proposals from traditional humanities.
Special Topics Session: "Subverting and Perverting: Bad Grrls in Fiction"
This special topics session is a follow up to a successful roundtable at the annual 2010 MELUS conference in Scranton, PA; the 2010 roundtable was inspired by poet-writer Marilyn Chin's _Revenge of the Mooncake Vixen_. In this novel, or book of tales, Chin's Chinese-American twin female protagonists subvert the dominant expectations of gender and sexuality. I am interested in paper proposals that examine the works of contemporary women writers who raise questions about gender and sexuality within and across various ethnicities.
