An interdisciplinary conference exploring the "creative" production the current economic crisis might provoke.
This special session of the PAMLA explores any intersection of literary studies and the discipline of psychology (not psychoanalysis), such as literary applications of memory theory, trauma theory, child psychology, psychopathology, affect, emotion, the psychology of reading, theories of perception, theories of imagination, cognitive poetics, or cognitive approaches to narrative theory.
PAMLA (Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association) is the western regional affiliate of MLA. The 2010 conference will take place November 13-14 at Chaminade University, Honolulu, Hawaii. Submit proposals online by April 5 at http://www.pamla.org/2010
Due to the difficulty and postal delay in sending and receiving hard copies, The AnaChronisT editors have decided to extend the deadline of submissions by two weeks. Hard copy waivers are possible, so new submissions are also admissible.
Below, please find the original CFP with the updated deadline.
The AnaChronisT journal invites research papers, interviews, and book reviews on literatures in English for its next issue, to be published in 2010. Papers are to be sent to The AnaChronisT (Department of English Studies, Eötvös Loránd University, H–1088 Budapest, Rákóczi út 5.) by Tuesday, 31 March 2010.
Papers are sought for a special session investigating any aspect of ecocriticism, including (but not limited to) ecocritical theory, environmental ethics, environmental justice, colonial and postcolonial ecologies, gender and ecology, literary representations of non-human being, and interdisciplinary investigations of literature and environmental science.
Paper proposals of 500 words and a 40-word abstract, due by April 5, 2010 must be submitted via PAMLA's Online Proposal Submission Form available at http://www.pamla.org/2010/session-topics .
Animals and War, A Collection of Essays: Call for Papers
I am editing a collection of essays from any discipline and period treating the topic of animals and warfare. Dolphins in the U.S. Navy, the dogs in Vietnam, Iraq, and elsewhere, elephants, pigeons, horses, mules, and many more—millions of nonhuman animals have been subjected to and participants in human warfare. What can we learn from this often invisible history?
