‘Literary and Visual Landscapes’, a University of Bristol interdisciplinary seminar series, invites proposals for a symposium in April 2018 on the theme of ‘traversing land, sea and sky: travel and the landscape’.

The Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library of Texas Tech University is hosting a conference in Lubbock, TX, April 19-21, 2018. Barry Lopez will be our featured speaker.
We accept both creative and scholarly papers/panels. We prefer creative work grounded in the natural world and critical/scholarly papers dealing in some way with writers whose work is included in the Sowell Collection. However, we always take a very broad (and we hope welcoming) approach to thoughtful and thought provoking proposals.
I am looking to put together a panel on Imperial Borderlands in the British Empire in the 19th Century for the North American Conference on British Studies in Providence RI, in October 2018. My own paper is on Sir Alexander Burnes's _Travels into Bokhara_ (1835); but I would welcome papers on Central Asia, Northern India, Africa, China, Persia, the Middle East, or other contact zones in the world just outside British Imperial reach at the time. Please send detailed abstracts of 500 words by March 1, 2018.
The organizers of the 14th Biennial Jack London Society Symposium (October 11–14, 2018, The University of Nevada, Las Vegas) invite paper proposals for a special panel focusing on Mark Twain and Jack London.
