Vitalpoetics: A Journal of Critical Literary Theory is now seeking submissions for Vol.2 No.3 to be

ideas in the field through close analysis, always holding that literature and its theory are connected
to the social, cultural and political contexts that give rise to it. We will consider papers from any
disciplinary approach that examine the political and social circumstances in which literature is
produced. Please submit a 500 word abstract. Visit the website for more details

Waiting Time

What are we waiting for? What awaits us? While often dismissed as a period of wastefulness or
lost time, waiting may also intensify experience and become a condition in which to consider
questions of modernity, aesthetic process, politics, erotics and the tempos of everyday life.

Turkish Literature and Film in a Global Context: This is a call for
contributors for a panel being proposed for the 2009 Modern Language
Association Convention in Philadelphia; I am also planning to put together
an edited collection on the same topic, so any abstracts that are submitted
for the MLA panel will also be considered for the proposed volume. I am
interested in any proposals that approach the subject, dealing with texts
old or new (from Ottoman literature to contemporary work) in any genre. Of
particular interest would be topics related to questions such as the global
reception of texts and films; audiences inside and outside of Turkey
