viscera: Seeking Creative Writing/Poetry Submissions for 2nd Biannual Chapbook

updated: 
Monday, January 21, 2013 - 4:56pm
The California Journal of Women Writers

The California Journal of Women Writers is a new online journal featuring original reviews and criticism of women's literature from across North America, as well as interviews with authors and commentary on critiques published elsewhere. We do not focus on any one type of literature, as long as the text is written by a female author and is of interest to TCJWW editors.

Our intent is to provide a space for enthusiastic dialogue supporting a wide variety of women writers. We invite our readers to unite, discuss, and join our conversation with insightful comments. This is a space devoted to fostering and enhancing the visibility of North American female authors.

Call for Papers for Collection: Captivity / Writing / Unbound

Proposals for papers are invited for a collection entitled Captivity / Writing / Unbound. We are particularly interested in papers that explore and extend the traditional boundaries of the study of captivity writing—such writing conceived generically, geographically, historically, or in disciplinary terms—and that do so through a triangulation of the three operant terms: Captivity, Writing, Unbound.

Interface 2013: Creative and Critical Approaches in the Digital Humanities
Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada
May 3-5, 2013

The digital humanities explores how emerging digital forms of scholarly inquiry and new ways to assess and to organize knowledge transform the creative and critical methods humanities scholars use to approach their objects of study. Thoughtful in play, interdisciplinary in engagement, utopian in spirit, transformational in intent, digital humanists "imagine new couplings and scalings that are facilitated both by new models of research practice and by the availability of new tools and technologies" (The Digital Humanities Manifesto 2.0).

LIT: Literature Interpretation Theory

The dust may have begun to settle in the blogosphere, but M. L. James's Fifty Shades of Gray novels continue to dominate the bestseller list, impervious to the literary outrage that greeted their remarkable success. In the wake of this phenomenon, LIT: Literature Interpretation Theory invites essays on literary works that flirt with, dabble in, or wholly embrace the pornographic. We are interested in scholarly engagements with the history, theory, and politics of pornography, as well as studies of the popularity, reception, censorship, and "literariness" of texts considered pornographic.
