The Poe Studies Association solicits proposals for papers on teaching Poe to be delivered at the American Literature Association's 23rd Annual Conference May 24-27, 2012 at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco in Embarcadero Center.
Confronted with a 2004 National Endowment of the Arts report that declared Americans "alliterate," how are college teachers convincing students, even their English majors, to read – and be enthusiastic about – Poe? How are his works relevant to their lives? Do you use social media or multi-media to engage them? Do you take a more traditional route to pique their interests? Proposals on all college-level courses encouraged (i.e., introduction to literature, survey, and special topics).
The MU Cross-Disciplinary Project (formerly known as "The Body Project") invites all graduate students and related researchers to submit proposals for our fifth annual conference. The 2012 theme is "Animals in Society." We welcome proposals for research or creative projects, including artworks, literature, performances, posters, papers and/or panels, and various other forms that escape our imagination but may live in yours.
Please join us for the 2012 Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association National Conference, in Boston, MA, April 11-14, at the Marriott Boston Copley Place. Below is information you need to submit a paper or panel and attend the conference. Feel free to cross-post.
Please note: conference dates are one week later than usual, avoiding the religious holidays, and making it easier for all to partaicipate.

Does a story ever truly finish, or does it carry on when translated into another medium? When a work of art is reinscribed into a cinematic or televisual text, does it in some ways get a new lease on life? For instance, does David Cronenberg's M. Butterfly (1993), based on the play by David Henry Hwang which itself uses Puccini's Madama Butterfly as a source, rely on audiences to know and recognize its previous source texts to make a larger point? Is this a case of artistic vampirism or taking advantage of the originary text to gain traction and promotion?
We invite you to submit a paper to The 1st International Conference on Speech and Multimodal Interaction in Assistive Environments (SMIAE 2012): http://www.informatik.uni-bremen.de/smiae/2012/ , to be held at the 50th Annual Meeting of the Association of Computational Linguistics (http://www.acl2012.org/), on July 8th - 14th, 2012, in Jeju, Republic of Korea.

The University at Albany English Graduate Student Organization presents its 10th annual graduate conference:
March 30-31, 2012
There are as many ways to conceptualize waste as there are ways in which waste permeates our world. It is ubiquitous; it figures into existence at every level. The history of waste is a history of equivocation, affirmation, disavowal, subsistence, persistence, inconvenience, differentiation, destruction, and decay. From the pragmatics of city sanitation to the logistics of disaster relief, from the remainders of mathematical equations to the emotive excesses of sentimental novels, the problem of "what remains" is central to the practice of academic inquiry.
