October 14-15, 2011
Twentieth- and twenty-first century British writers have evinced an overwhelming interest in depicting communal cooking scenes, unsavory solitary meals, lavish dinners with family members, struggles with eating disorders, and WWII rationing in their works. Recent literary studies and articles focusing on food and gender, food and cultural identity, food and social class, and food and children's literature attest to this burgeoning critical interest. This panel seeks proposals for papers that explore the intersections between food and socialization in the twentieth- and/or twenty-first century British novel, short story, poem, and/or play.
The Medieval and Early Modern English Studies Association of Korea and the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies at Seoul National University will co-host an international conference under the title of "Imagining Magic and Witchcraft in Medieval and Early Modern Literature." In medieval and early modern society, magic and witchcraft provided sources of popular and literary imagination and objects of both sheer fascination and collective anxiety, as well as pretexts for political and religious persecution. They also marked the frontier of scientific inquiry and human understanding. Imagining magic and witchcraft was an attempt to map the unmappable—the supernatural, the unknown, and the prohibited.

The MLA has approved a the volume Approaches to Teaching Coetzee's Disgrace and Other Works for its Approaches to Teaching World Literature series.

We are looking for one additional essay on Coetzee and the history of the novel. We ask that authors interested in being considered for inclusion submit a 300 word abstract on any aspect of this topic to email@example.com by August 20, 2011.
2012 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of Aldous Huxley's final novel, _Island_ (1962), and 2013 will observe the half-century since his death. The panel session will reexamine Huxley's work (of any genre) in light of its influence on and relevance to contemporary culture, ideas, and movements. The panel's scope intends to be broad and inclusive, to encourage new North American scholarly attention on Huxley and his works. Of particular interest are new approaches that place Huxley in dialogue with other artists and intellectuals within and beyond Anglo-American traditions.
The Flannery O'Connor Society is sponsoring panels at the ALA Symposium on Crime Fiction in American Culture on new perspectives and "The Displaced Person":
The term 'North-East' is a form of geographical, linguistic and ethnic stereotyping that clubs together eight disparate states comprising of Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh, Tripura, Manipur, Mizoram, and Sikkim, that happen to lie in the Northeastern periphery of the Indian union. The body of works by English-language writers from this region refers to the North-East Indian Writings in English. Some of the most interesting Indian writing in English today is coming from this region. Intense political conflict and complex issues of identity along with some of the psychological and social perplexities of the present provide much fodder for storylines.
After the success of the first NECS Graduate Workshop in Istanbul (Summer 2010) and in anticipation of a successful second workshop in London (Summer 2011) we are now organizing a
two-day intensive workshop in Belgrade this Autumn focusing on the topic Blurred Boundaries/Contested Geographies. The aim of the NECS workshops is to bring young researchers and graduate students together in fruitful debate creating a sustainable international network that meets regularly throughout the year. Participants will find a platform where they peer review
works-in-progress and practice presentation and discussion skills in preparation for academic conference participation.
