NANO: New American Notes Online

Issue 2.1: Evaluation, Critique, Prizes, and Peer Review

What are the best and newest methods for creating, evaluating, and disseminating scholarly and creative work? This question motivates the next issue of NANO. As digital formats help foster new ways to share and critique written and artistic work, as more people try to squeeze through the narrowing bottleneck of publishing and approval and jobs, something has to give, or at least change.

Literary London 2012: Representations of London in Literature (4-6 July 2012)

updated: 
Wednesday, January 25, 2012 - 11:36am
full name / name of organization: 
Hosted by: the Institute of English Studies, University of London; Organised by: The Literary London Society

Proposals are invited for 20-minute papers, comprised panels, and roundtable sessions, which consider any period or genre of literature about, set in, inspired by, or alluding to central and suburban London and its environs, from the city's roots in pre-Roman times to its imagined futures. While the main focus of the conference will be on literary texts, we actively encourage interdisciplinary contributions relating film, architecture, geography, theories of urban space, etc., to literary representations of London. Papers from postgraduate students are particularly welcome for consideration. While papers on all areas of literary London are welcomed, the conference theme in 2012 is 'Sports, Games, and Pastimes'. Topics that might be addressed are:

[Update] The Institution of Literature: 250 Years of English Studies and Cultural Transfer (30 August - 1 September 2012)

Wednesday, January 25, 2012 - 9:32am
full name / name of organization: 
Department of British Literature and Culture / Department of English Didactics, Goettingen University

Keynote speakers: Susan Bassnett, Terry Eagleton, and Konrad Schröder.

2012 marks the 250th anniversary of the election of John Tompson as the first Professor of English at Goettingen University. His English Miscellanies was one of the first English publications ever in Germany, and was also the first anthology composed in an academic context for the purpose of the mediation of English literature and culture to German students of English. The Miscellanies was therefore an important watershed in the development of British-German literary and cultural transfer.

[Extended Deadline 16 February] Sensualising Deformity: Communication and Construction of Monstrous Embodiment

updated: 
Wednesday, January 25, 2012 - 9:05am

contact email: 

Deformity is traditionally sanitised and fitted into a structure of normality. The academy tends to obscure the complexity of the sensuous/sensual/sensed body of the deformed subject, and of the questions, anxieties, and denials which surround deformity when it is located within a continuum of sense.

MSA 14 (Oct. 18-21, 2012)--Proposed Panel on Modernism and Psychology

updated: 
Tuesday, January 24, 2012 - 8:50pm
full name / name of organization: 
Jen Spitzer and Meg Hammond / New York University

We are looking for a third contributor to round out a proposed panel on modernism and psychology for the 2012 Modernist Studies Association conference in Las Vegas. Papers for the panel will either explore the role(s) that psychological theories and practice played in the creation of modernist art or use recent psychology to illuminate some aspect of modernism. Although we are particularly interested in papers that treat schools of psychology other than Freudian psychoanalysis (such as behaviorism, social psychology, cognitive psychology, or self psychology), we also welcome papers that examine non-orthodox Freudian approaches. We especially hope to see proposals for papers on visual art, film, theater, or architecture.
