This is a call for papers for a panel on "Politics of Literary Storytelling" for the conference on "Storytelling: Global Reflections on Narrative" that will take place in May 2012 in Prague, Czech Republic. Our panel will explore storytelling across genres of Postmodern fiction, involving plays, short stories, and novels, seeking to answer some of the following questions: Do stories of individual experience have a better capacity to effect social change when they are related through multiple or fragmented narrators? The Postmodern exercise seems to focus on this type of storytelling, but does it actually have any political potential, and if so, how?

The lines quoted in the title of the conference from W.B. Yeats' "Sailing to Byzantium," which are recalled by one of the characters in Marina Warner's novel In a Dark Wood, bring to light the theme of this year's Literature in English Symposium: Travelling in space and time.
The idea of a journey is inherently connected with changing places and movement, but, through reading, we can traverse space and time, continents and cultures, whilst remaining static.
The theme for the London Nineteenth-Century Studies Seminar in the Spring term 2012 will be Orality and Literacy, marking the thirtieth anniversary of the appearance of Walter Ong's influential book. Over three days in January, February, and March, speakers will explore a range of issues relating to the interactions between voice and text in the Anglo-American long nineteenth century: philology and acoustic nostalgia, melody and poetic form, laughter, and more.
We are soliciting 20-minute papers on the Seminar theme to form a panel discussion on the extended final day of the Seminar programme, Saturday 17 March 2012.
Please send 300-word proposals to the convenors, James Emmott (Birkbeck) and Tom F. Wright (UEA)

CFP: The Archive
The Velvet Light Trap Issue #71: The Archive
From material to immaterial, the archive serves as an interface between past and future knowledge. In this relationship, the archive is both a method and a space of theory and politics. As the production and exchange of information continue to expand at exponential rates, understanding the role of the archive in the storage, accessibility, and legacy of this information becomes increasingly necessary. Already this call has joined the digital archives of inboxes, servers, and hard drives, underscoring the prevalence of archives in everyday life. The study of the production of knowledge necessitates an interrogation of the contemporary state of the archive.

How do people enact belonging to (or separation from) a nation through performances of citizenship? Possible performances may include (but are certainly not limited to):

American Literature Association Conference in San Francisco, CA, May 24-27, 2012
Papers are invited for Studies in Comics volume 3.2. This special issue seeks to provide a forum for new articulations between comics studies and contemporary cultural theory.
The importance and continued relevance of poststructuralist/postmodernist thought, the Frankfurt school's studies of mass culture, McLuhan's media theory and Bourdieu's critical sociology are rightly acknowledged. Such figures dominate theoretical academic discourse on comics, as in other areas of cultural studies, often at the expense of engagement with alternative strands of critical thinking.
Abstracts are invited on any aspect of the writing of the novelist Elizabeth Taylor.These should be about 250 words and sent in the form of an e-mail attachment to arrive by December 8 2011. The conference will be held at Anglia Ruskin's Cambridge campus. Participants include John Brannigan, Erica Brown, Alice Ferrebe, Maud Ellmann, Faith Pullin, N. H. Reeve. The plenary speaker is Nicola Beauman. Papers will be of 20 minutes duration.
The convenor is happy to talk informally to or correspond with anyone who may be considering submitting a proposal. Please include your postal address and daytime telephone number. Ph. D students are also asked to give the title of their dissertation and the name and e-mail address of their supervisor.
