15-18 June, 2006
The department of English at Karlstad University, Sweden, invites session
organizers and presentations for an international, multidisciplinary
conference with a focus on different relationships between space, haunting
and discourse. We are very happy that a number of people from different
countries and disciplines responded to our first call, which means that the
conference will be a truly international and interdisciplinary forum for
presentations and discussions related to the conference themes.
This is a call for proposals for 2 areas of the Mid-Atlantic Pop/Am.
Culture Annual Conference. The 2005 conference will be held at the Hyatt
Regency Hotel in New Brunswick, NJ from November 4-6, 2005. The 2 areas
are: "This Builds That: The Architecture of Literature" and "Technology and
the Home"; descriptions are below. I look forward to receiving proposals at
the address listed below by June 15, 2005.
The Caribbean Chapter of the College English Association (CEA-CC) plans to
publish the proceedings of its Spring 2005 conference on "Transgression and
Taboo." We are seeking an additional 5 papers to supplement this volume. We
are interested in essays that explore instances of the dialectics of
transgression and taboo in theoretical, poetical, fictional and dramatic texts.
We are particularly interested in papers that explore the intersection
between transgression, taboo, and incest.
