The Digital Americanist Society seeks speakers who will articulate a clear, interpretive intervention that digital scholarship has made (or could make) in their areas of study. Our goal will not be to describe digital projects, but instead to demonstrate how those projects advance, supplement, or disrupt the scholarly conversations of our respective literary subfields. We encourage "non-DH" scholars whose work has benefited from DH scholarship to contribute. Submit abstracts to Ryan Cordell, Northeastern University, email@example.com, by September 30, 2012.

The interdisciplinary journal CASCA, which encourages the publication of articles in the fields of humanities, social sciences and arts, invites all interested authors to participate in the publication of its first issue. The first issue is not limited thematically. We are interested in publishing research papers, essays, book reviews, reviews of exhibitions, performing arts and other forms of artistic expression, etc. All interested researchers and practitioners can send their submissions to the web address firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Proposals for panels and papers are invited for a conference entitled "Captivity Writing Unbound," to be hosted by the University of South Alabama's Department of English and held at its Baldwin County campus, which is set in the heart of the quaint artist community of Fairhope, overlooking scenic Mobile Bay. As conference organizers, we envision a relatively concentrated event in which select scholars working in various disciplines and historical periods will present new ideas about the general area of writing and captivity. We are particularly interested in papers that explore and extend the traditional boundaries of the study of captivity writing, whether these are conceived generically, geographically, historically, or in disciplinary terms.
