We invite proposals for papers exploring literature pedagogy at the community college level and welcome critical/theoretical approaches to teaching literature. This is an interdisciplinary call extended to teachers and graduate students. Suggested topics include:
This panel seeks to examine the stage history of Christopher Marlowe's dramatic works, considering the literature as the product of a theatre artist. Papers will be asked to approach Marlowe's plays from a theatrical standpoint, in order to discuss what we might learn from by examining the force of performance as a shaping factor in the reception of Marlowe's small but vibrant body of work. Papers that discuss cinematic treatments of the plays, as well as considerations of Marlowe's place in Elizabethan stage history are also welcome. Please send abstracts of 250 words to Louise Geddes atLGeddes@adelphi.edu. Deadline for submissions is September 30, 2011.

We invite submissions for papers for a workshop to be held at the University of Melbourne in December 2011 that explores the varying emotional textures of Taiwan life. It takes the dyad of Happiness and Sadness as its point of departure, but also examines other emotional registers and how these might relate to Taiwan's social and historical structures. These emotional textures can be seen as both products of particular kinds of social, political, cultural and economic structures and as ways in which those structures are experienced and interpreted. We hope that an exploration of Taiwan society through the paired themes of happiness and sadness (while not excluding other emotions) will offer new ways to approach the study of Taiwan.
