The Rat's Mouth Review - Florida Atlantic University Graduate Journal

DEADLINE: January 15th, 2013

For our inaugural issue, we are seeking submissions of graduate student work from around the world on the topic of mimesis versus invention. The Rat's Mouth Review, as a journal, seeks to invent itself, few would argue that it is not doing so in a mimetic fashion. We emulate other journals in order to forge our own identity and we do so with the hope of being "of [great] worth." To accomplish this, we require your contributions.

The University of Wisconsin-Madison's ninth annual Graduate Conference on Language and Literature (MadLit) will be held February 28–March 1, 2013.

Building from the debates surrounding Stephen Best and Sharon Marcus's "Surface Reading: An Introduction" (Representations 108.1 (Fall 2009): 1–21), this conference will explore the implications of using spatial models to conceptualize the location of meaning in language, literature, and discourse.
