Horror Studies serves the international academic community in the humanities and specifically those scholars interested in horror. Exclusively examining horror, this journal provides interested professionals with an opportunity to read outstanding scholarship from a variety of disciplinary perspectives, including work conceived as interdisciplinary. By expanding the conversation to include specialists concerned with diverse historical periods, varied geography, and a wide variety of expressive media, this journal will inform and stimulate anyone interested in a wider and deeper understanding of horror.
This is the first and final call for papers for the 2012 CAI Visiting Scholar Conference at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. Abstract submission is open to all who are interested, and early career scholars are encouraged to apply. Abstract submissions are due December 5, 2011.

Seeking panelists for a Roundtable Panel at the 43rd Annual College English Association (CEA) Conference (March 29-31, 2012) to be held in Richmond, VA. In a recent article on teaching multiethnic literature published in MELUS, Tina Chen calls for "an ethics of knowledge, derived from the literature itself, that can help us teach our students to be ethically oriented towards the study of alterity." Such an ethics of knowledge, Chen proposes, would emphasize the responsibilities incumbent on authors, readers, and critics as they address cultural difference, and would help to counter the "humanistic impulse" that seeks to privilege similarity in the midst of alterity.

Dada/Surrealism (http://ir.uiowa.edu/dadasur/) special journal issue: "Wonderful Things" - Surrealism and Egypt
In November 1922 Howard Carter opened the tomb of Tutankhamun in Egypt's Valley of the Kings, the greatest archaeological discovery of the 20th century. This discovery triggered an enormous Egyptomanic craze in Europe and America, evident across architecture, the arts and popular culture. This special issue will mark the 90th anniversary of the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb by evaluating Egypt's significant and diverse impact on surrealism.
