Filolog (Philologist) is a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal with an international Editorial Board.

We are calling for papers dealing with contemporary literary, cultural, and language theories and/or their applications to particular works for the third issue of our journal. We would also welcome papers dealing with meta-theories and their significance for the human and social sciences, as well as reviews of the most recent books in the field of cultural, language and literary theories and criticism.

Papers should be a maximum of 10.000 words, and use the New Harvard Citation System. Papers must include abstracts and key words. Authors should also provide a short bio (up to 20 lines).

American Conference for Irish Studies (ACIS) midatlantic regional conference

ACIS Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference, 2011, INTERROGATING THE URBAN: Irish cities, cultures and identities. September 30th and October 1, 2011. Manhattan College. Riverdale, NY.

We invite you to join us at the ACIS Mid-Atlantic regional conference at Manhattan College in Riverdale, NY. In what ways do Irish urban spaces and urban concerns shape national policy or culture in Ireland? How does Irish urban geography, or the representation of it (in film, fiction, poetry and popular culture), inform our positions as scholars of Irish history, literature, and identity?

_LIT: Literature Interpretation Theory_

Alien invasion, viral outbreak, nuclear holocaust, the rise of the machines, the flood, the second coming, the second ice age—these are just a few of the ways human beings have imagined their "end of days." And someone's Armageddon clock is always ticking—we just dodged Harold Camping's rapture on May 21st of this year, and the Mayan-predicted doomsday of 2012 is just around the corner. In the end, what do we reveal about ourselves when we dream of the apocalypse? What are the social and political functions of these narratives in any given historical period? How do different cultures imagine the apocalypse, and what do these differences reveal? What is particular to the narratological design and content of apocalyptic texts?
