Watermark is dedicated to publishing original critical and theoretical papers concerned with the fields of rhetoric and composition and literature of all genres and periods. As this journal is intended to provide a forum for emerging voices, only student work will be considered.
LURe: Literary Undergraduate Research is a new peer-reviewed journal dedicated to publishing original critical works by undergraduate English students in a professional medium, something for which almost no precedent now exists. The journal hopes to promote undergraduate research into and scholarship on the English language and Anglophone literatures as well as literary theory, cultural studies, and film.
The journal, which will release its second issue in November 2011, now seeks submissions for its next issue. To submit to the Spring 2012 issue, please email articles, in either Microsoft Word or PDF formats, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
McGill English Graduate Conference CFP
Ghost Stories: Hauntings and Echoes in Literature and Culture
27-29 January 2012
McGill University, Montreal
The McGill English Department's Eighteenth Annual Graduate Conference on Language and Literature invites submissions on the topic of literary hauntings. How do ghosts of the past figure in literature, theatre, film, television, and other texts and cultural artifacts? How do familial, imperial, social, linguistic, or national legacies influence artists and their work? How do texts "remember" historical events or other texts? Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
From Jacques de Vaucanson's eighteenth-century defecating duck to robots to weaponized military drones, automation has long been a significant site of fascination and fear. This panel will explore automation using a wide lens – one that includes aesthetic representations of, for example, automated machines, animals, and humans, as well as theories of automation, labor, and technology. Specifically, this panel seeks to investigate the narratives and rhetorics of catastrophe and crisis that frequently accompany automation: from fears of dehumanization through our engagement with automated machines, to threats of the automation of our labor, production, consumption, and desires.
The Festivals & Faires Area of the Popular Culture Association welcomes submissions for the 2012 PCA/ACA conference in Boston, MA (April 11-14, 2011) on any festival or faire—modern or historical.

Since the conference is in Boston, MA, any papers relating to festivals and faires in the city or state are greatly appreciated. Other specific areas of interest for this year's panels include, but are not limited to:
