Postcolonial Studies Association

Following this year of the Queen's Jubilee and the London Olympics, we invite reflections on Britain as a postcolonial site.

:: What discourses and practices of nation and nationality are operative in Britain today?
:: Which hidden histories of Britain remain untold, or unheard?
:: How are literary, dramatic, and artistic representations re-shaping the nation?
:: What fruitful directions might future postcolonial studies of Britain take?

We welcome submissions from across the full spectrum of scholarly disciplines, and encourage interdisciplinary research. We also invite reports on relevant conferences or cultural activities, and details of appropriate degree courses, study centres, and recent publications.

Boston College English Graduate Conference

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 literary and scientific analyses?
