CALL FOR PAPERS AND PARTICIPATION
Submission Deadline: March 20, 2013
The International Conference on E-Technologies and Business on the Web (EBW2013)
University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce (UTCC), Bangkok, Thailand
CALL FOR PAPERS AND PARTICIPATION
Submissions are sought for a collection of essays titled Write in Tune: Contemporary Music in Fiction, which is under contract at Bloomsbury Press (formerly Continuum). As the title suggests, the forthcoming volume focuses on post-1960s fiction that engages the themes, artists, songs, genres, or cultural import of popular music.
Given that many of the chapters for the collection are in place, we would emphasize two points: a) we are particularly interested in essays that focus on issues of gender or that treat racial/national/postcolonial identity; and b) we very much welcome inquiries to avoid duplicate proposals.
Extension: all submissions now due by January 15th, 2013.
In 1913, Ezra Pound articulated the literary imperative for the modernists' age: "Any work of art which is not a beginning, an invention, a discovery is of little worth," and later urged artists to "Make it New." Conversely, the Hebraic King Solomon wrote, "What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun" (Ecc. 1:9 NIV).
Is the Merchant of Venice a plea for tolerance or a sanction for revenge? Is it a late early comedy or an early problem play? How does it reflect (or seem to reflect) upon our own situation—ie. our ongoing banking crises, religious tensions, and cultural transitions?
Keynote Speaker: Eric Mallin, University of Texas, at Austin
Papers can consider but are not limited to the following topics:
recent stage and film versions
Pedagogical approaches in the inclusive, multicultural classroom
Early comedy vs. "problem play"
Relation to other Renaissance plays
The ongoing financial crisis

Health, Mental Health, and Literature
The Boston College English Graduate Conference seeks abstracts for papers that consider the intersection between health, mental health, and literature.
Considering recent interdisciplinary developments in the field of Medical Humanities, we are interested in exploring the ways in which literature and other creative arts have attempted to represent or otherwise understand health, which is so often analyzed from a clinical or scientific perspective. We seek papers that work to synthesize clinical approaches and literary approaches to the mind and body. What can be gained by merging multiple perspectives?
"Worlds Between: Exploring the Borders, Boundaries, and Gaps that Divide and Bind"

"Between two worlds life hovers like a star, twixt night and morn, upon the horizon's verge." – Lord Byron
This conference is interested in exploring the concept of the spaces between – genres, cultures, times, people, movements, nations – the possibilities are endless. How do these spaces confine? How do they enable? What moves between? What exists within?

Seeking abstracts interested in a panel on Du Bois for the ASA Convention in Wah
I'm seeking contributors to a collection of essays that consider innovative teaching practices for engaging students with American ethnic literatures. The text is approved for contract with a publisher.
Text Summary and Overview
Contemporary ethnic American award winning authors like Edwidge Danticat, Junot Diaz, and Jhumpa Lahiri have interpreted and provoked self-legitimization of the varied realms of ethnic experience and memory in American society. Ethnic American literatures present an ongoing dialogue between ethnic individual and mainstream culture, history, class, religion, politics and sexuality. All of these issues are at play for teachers attempting to establish ethnically inclusive literary curriculums.
We send to you the information about the possibility to submit an article for international scientific journal (Fourth CFP)

"Narrative-Making in the Aftermath of War" will be a two-day conference sponsored by the Interdisciplinary Humanities Center (IHC) of the University of California, Santa Barbara, on April 25-26, 2013. The conference is part of the IHC's 2012-2013 program "Fallout," a year-long series of events dedicated to examining the impact of the recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan upon the soldiers who have fought in these wars: visit http://www.ihc.ucsb.edu/fallout for more details.
