Early Modern Culture, 1450-1850
The Sixteenth Annual Meeting of the Group for Early Modern Cultural Studies (GEMCS)
October 22-25, 2009
GEMCS was formed in 1993 to promote the study of literature, history, art history, and material culture from the Renaissance to the mid-nineteenth century across disciplinary, geographic, and cultural boundaries.
This year's theme, "Tracing Footprints," is intended to be suggestive rather than prescriptive. As always, GEMCS welcomes panels and proposals on all aspects of culture between 1450 and 1850.
The medium is the message. Using this conceptual framework, our conference will explore how historical changes in media from the oral to the digital lead to the emergence of hybrid literary forms and the constant reinvention of literariness itself. With the revolution of (e)merging technologies as our schema, we seek pluralistic and interdisciplinary research on the dynamic network linking modes of communication, mass media and textuality.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
Department of Childhood Studies
Rutgers University, Camden
Call for Papers – Exploring Childhood Studies
The graduate students of the Department of Childhood Studies at Rutgers University, Camden invite submissions for papers and poster presentations for their first formal graduate student conference on April 9, 2010. Graduate students from all disciplines who are engaged in research relating to children and childhood are encouraged to submit proposals.
Pedagogy in a digital age or digital pedagogy? The SAMLA special session on pedagogy in the digital age welcomes paper, panel, and performance proposals on topics that deal with all aspects of pedagogy in the digital age, such as the uses of the term "digital pedagogy," defining the term, if that's possible; best digital pedagogical practices in the classroom; the tools of digital pedagogy; digital pedagogy and student writing; the politics of digital pedagogy; digital pedagogy and literacy (or multi-literacies); digital pedagogy and globalization; and other relevant topics.
In current debates about the War in Iraq, it has become commonplace for politicians and journalists to conjure the specter of the Vietnam War as a means of quantifying the impact of the current war in American culture and throughout the world. Surprisingly, though, few have scrutinized these comparisons to examine the differences between the popular music of the Vietnam era and the music of the current post-9/11 era. While the Vietnam era found countless bands and musicians responding in protest to that war, there has arguably been a significantly smaller amount of contemporary musicians who have taken overt stances, in their music, about the politics of post-9/11 life, in America and elsewhere.

University of Massachusetts Amherst
Date: October 16-17, 2009
E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org to contact organizers
Deadline to submit abstracts has been extended to Monday, June 29, 2009.
Abstracts need not explicitly engage "passions." The conference theme is used to organize panel discussions of the scholarly investments that inform our work. While this is the organizing theme, we use it to signify broadly the social, cultural, and economic investments that organize the things we study, and how we study them,
Call for Papers
Walter Benjamin and Memory
This panel invites papers that consider the theory of memory as it emerges in and through the work of Walter Benjamin. It hopes to bring together those interested in exploring the complex figuration of forgetting to be found in his thought. Contributions might confine their attention to Benjamin´s corpus, or stage comparative enquires into such areas as holocaust memory, trauma, or nostalgia. Papers that consider the commemoration of Benjamin´s life – in novels, films, at the memorial site in Portbou – are also welcome. Please send proposals to Wayne Stables at email@example.com
