The editorial board of Luvah ( http://mimes.is ) is seeking strong submissions for the forthcoming August issue. We are an interdisciplinary journal focused on the interplay of religion, philosophy, and politics in the late-capitalist spiritual vacuum. Our journal publishes critical texts, translations, and creative writing, such as poetry. If you are interested in submitting a paper or proposal, please contact the editor at email@example.com.
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, firstname.lastname@example.org, 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 email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
Writing in 1899, Frederick Dolman argued in an article titled "Four-Footed Actors: About Some Well-Known Animals that Appear in the London and Provincial Stage" that the "growth of variety theatres and the decay of comic songs" had developed in "several kinds of diversion, not the least of which is furnished by the art of the animal-trainer" (The English Illustrated Magazine, Sep. 1899, 192, p. 521). Dolman was describing the large-scale entertainments starring animals that had taken over traditional spectator recreations for the last century in a manner not unlike the success of music-halls and professional sport.
CALL FOR ABSTRACTS/PAPERS
We invite contributions to our proposed volume, Queer Landscapes: Mapping Queer Space(s) of Praxis and Pedagogy . For two decades, queer theory has provided a flexible methodology for engaging the world. This broad theoretical approach is slowly working to dissolve dialectical boundaries erected to contain rigid distinctions separating disciplines within the academy, and the academy itself from the world beyond. In doing so, queer theory has opened up new landscapes in diverse fields in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences, pushing us to reconsider the ways in which we organize and navigate knowledge.
