Dear colleagues,

[UPDATE] NeMLA 2013 CFP: Queer Self-Representation: It Isn't All About Me

Sunday, July 29, 2012 - 9:41am
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)

This panel will examine the significance and radical potential of queer self-representation. The personal continues to be political, and for queer constituencies whose representation by a dominant mainstream has been either absent, negative, or consistently rife with limiting stereotypes, self-representation becomes crucial. However, while queer self-representation may engage with such negative representation, it is not limited to this function. Nor is it limited to a particular genre, including autobiography.

CFP Other Worlds 3rd December 2012

Saturday, July 28, 2012 - 7:13am
Victorian Network and King's College London

Keynote Speakers: Dr John Holmes (Reading) and Professor Cora Kaplan (KCL)

From other lands to other planets to other dimensions, the nineteenth-century imagination thrived on the idea of 'elsewhere'. Alongside a developing rhetoric of geographically and intellectually bounded identities grew a fascination with alterity. Other Worlds seeks to explore the many ways in which Victorians looked beyond their quotidian spheres to imagined alternatives. We invite submissions which explore nineteenth-century modes of thought which position themselves as other, alternative, transcendent, secret or hidden.

Women's Ethos: Intersections of Rhetorics and Feminisms-Nov. 1, 2012

Friday, July 27, 2012 - 3:57pm
Rebecca Jones, Nancy Myers, Kathleen Ryan

Call for Chapter Proposals

We invite chapter proposals of 500 words for the volume with the working title, Women's Ethos: Intersections of Rhetorics and Feminisms. Women's Ethos seeks contributions that examine women's and feminist ethos as rhetorical praxis. Rejecting a singular, isolated notion of ethos, we characterize ethos as intersubjective and constructed. Women's Ethos considers anew the inventive ways diverse women and other minorities have constructed, currently embody, and might imagine ethos in the future.
