Recent scholarship has explored William Blake's influence on a number of twentieth-century writers, from W.B. Yeats to Philip K. Dick and Laura Moriarty. This panel seeks to find new links between Blake and the twentieth-century writers with whom he is most often associated – Yeats, Huxley, and Lawrence, among others – and to put Blake's art in dialogue with other artists, including graphic novelists, filmmakers, and non-Anglo-American writers. Submissions that address Blake's relationship to issues in twentieth-/twenty-first-century philosophy, such as subject formation, vitalism, and posthumanism, will also be considered.
The 2011 Narrative Conference is sponsored by Washington University in St. Louis and the International Society for the Study of Narrative and will be held in St. Louis, Missouri, April 7-10, 2011.

Black Camera invites submissions for a special issue or section of a future issue devoted to a critical assessment of the Film Precious and the Novel Push by Sapphire (upon which Precious is based) to be published in Fall 2012.
The conference will include sessions on Literature, the Sacred, and Texts; Literature, the Sacred, and the Environment; and Literature, the Sacred, and Philosophy. Within this context both literature and the sacred are defined quite broadly, and presentations on any topic, theme, or perspective within those general categories are welcome. Participants are also encouraged to propose their own category-specific sessions if necessary.
The conference will be held Thursday, October 14th, through Saturday, October 16th, at the Museum of Art at Brigham Young University.
Presentations should run approximately 15 minutes. Selected presentations from the conference will be published in a 2011 conference-specific issue of Literature and Belief.
In addition to traditional paper sessions and roundtables, through the poster presentation session, SAMLA welcomes visual presentations as well. The subject matter for the proposal may be in any area related to languages and literature, including the special focus: "The Interplay of Text and Image." This topic invites presentations that explore the cross fertilization between text and image through a variety of traditional and modern means--including film, art, illustration, photography, and visual rhetorics. The topic especially lends itself to the "poster presentations" session because of the emphasis on the visual. Please know that while there is a special focus, we welcome and encourage proposals outside of this topic area as well.

Journal of Men, Masculinities and Spirituality (JMMS) is an online, scholarly, peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal. JMMS is published twice a year with provision for other special editions.

Similarly, JMMS addresses not only monotheistic religions and spiritualities but also Eastern, indigenous, new religious movements and other spiritualities which resist categorization. Articles and reviews are welcome at any time. JMMS will also consider previously published work if it is not available elsewhere on the internet, and the author holds the rights to re-publish.

This panel addresses the various relationships between seriality and temporality.
The serial principle has a important influence on contemporary culture: novels, movies and television shows, comic books, video games, etc. are published in series. Consequently, this principle largely informs contemporary ways of conceiving, producing and making sense of narratives in general. This panel wants to locate the importance of seriality within our present-day mediascape.

The Emergence of the Posthuman Subject
An Interdisciplinary Conference at the University of Surrey, 2-3 July 2010
Over the past two decades theories and critical practices associated with posthumanism have become an increasingly significant presence in the Arts and Sciences. Inspired by the radical innovation that period has seen in information and communication technology, philosophers and writers have hailed what amounts to a break with the humanist tradition that has underpinned western civilisation for over five-hundred years.
This conference sets out to trace the Emergence of the Posthuman Subject, in fields as diverse as literature, psychology, philosophy, anthropology, film, palaeontology, zoology, theatre and physics.
I'm seeking paper submissions for a panel at the Northeast Modern Language Association Conference. The focus will be on American women writers' responses to Freud.

Please email your abstract and a brief biographical statement to Kristina Marie Darling, KristinaMarieDarling@yahoo.com
