Lynne M. Simpson / College English Association

The College English Association, a collegial gathering of scholar-teachers in English studies, welcomes proposals for presentations on "Nature in the Renaissance" for our 44th annual conference in Savannah. Essays might usefully explore the construction of human nature in 16th and 17th century British literature or the "nature" of the period itself or its rich and varied literature. How is the natural world represented? What is the nature of familial or social bonds? What constitutes "natural" and therefore normative behavior, belief, or philosophy? Or how does the literature depict that which is "unnatural" or abnormal? Please submit your proposal on-line at http://www.cea-web.org.

"Students, Faculty, and the Common Good" — a CFP from NEA's Thought & Action, due 1/31

Thought & Action journal/National Education Association

The Thought & Action Review Panel invites submissions for "Faculty, Students, and the Common Good," a special focus section of the 2013 issue of NEA's peer-reviewed journal of higher education.

As our nation becomes increasingly partisan and polarized, especially between rich and poor, and as public education becomes increasingly underfunded and targeted by anti-egalitarian forces, we encourage responses that speak to the role of faculty and students in creating a more democratic, more decent society. We ask you: What is the public good, and what does it mean to fight for it? What responsibility do you feel for other people's children?

[REMINDER] The Journal of Popular Television

James Leggott (Northumbria University, UK)

This international, peer-reviewed journal invites articles on all aspects of popular television, both fictional and non-fictional, from docudramas and sports to news and cultural programming. The first volume will be published in 2013 by Intellect (UK).

Published bi-annually, the journal is rooted in the belief that popular television continues to play a major cultural, political and social role, and thus seeks contributions that contextualise programmes, genres and phenomena. Analysis of national television cultures and style are welcomed, but the editors are particularly interested in interdisciplinary, empirical and comparative approaches to shows and developments across national boundaries.
