NANO: New American Notes Online

Issue 2.1: Evaluation, Critique, Prizes, and Peer Review

What are the best and newest methods for creating, evaluating, and disseminating scholarly and creative work? This question motivates the next issue of NANO. As digital formats help foster new ways to share and critique written and artistic work, as more people try to squeeze through the narrowing bottleneck of publishing and approval and jobs, something has to give, or at least change.

Literary London 2012: Representations of London in Literature (4-6 July 2012)

updated: 
Wednesday, January 25, 2012 - 11:36am
Hosted by: the Institute of English Studies, University of London; Organised by: The Literary London Society

Proposals are invited for 20-minute papers, comprised panels, and roundtable sessions, which consider any period or genre of literature about, set in, inspired by, or alluding to central and suburban London and its environs, from the city's roots in pre-Roman times to its imagined futures. While the main focus of the conference will be on literary texts, we actively encourage interdisciplinary contributions relating film, architecture, geography, theories of urban space, etc., to literary representations of London. Papers from postgraduate students are particularly welcome for consideration. While papers on all areas of literary London are welcomed, the conference theme in 2012 is 'Sports, Games, and Pastimes'. Topics that might be addressed are:

[Update] The Institution of Literature: 250 Years of English Studies and Cultural Transfer (30 August - 1 September 2012)

updated: 
Wednesday, January 25, 2012 - 9:32am
Department of British Literature and Culture / Department of English Didactics, Goettingen University

Keynote speakers: Susan Bassnett, Terry Eagleton, and Konrad Schröder.

2012 marks the 250th anniversary of the election of John Tompson as the first Professor of English at Goettingen University. His English Miscellanies was one of the first English publications ever in Germany, and was also the first anthology composed in an academic context for the purpose of the mediation of English literature and culture to German students of English. The Miscellanies was therefore an important watershed in the development of British-German literary and cultural transfer.

CFP: The Archive

The Velvet Light Trap Issue #71: The Archive

From material to immaterial, the archive serves as an interface between past and future knowledge. In this relationship, the archive is both a method and a space of theory and politics. As the production and exchange of information continue to expand at exponential rates, understanding the role of the archive in the storage, accessibility, and legacy of this information becomes increasingly necessary. Already this call has joined the digital archives of inboxes, servers, and hard drives, underscoring the prevalence of archives in everyday life. The study of the production of knowledge necessitates an interrogation of the contemporary state of the archive.
