INQUIS is an online, biannual, blind peer-reviewed journal which offers graduate students in the field of literatures in English a chance to make their research known internationally. Considering that literary studies as a field of scholarly study has undergone tremendous changes and challenges, both the practice and theory of literary studies certainly need a thorough scrutiny under the light of new perspectives, new approaches, new interpretations as well as new insights. By including the works of graduate researchers, the journal primarily aims to promote dialogue and to serve as an international forum for young academics and researchers where they can share their ideas and contribute globally to the discussions on studies of literatures in English.
The deadline for abstracts for my panel on Travel Writing and Periodical Press at the British Association of Victorian Studies (BAVS) annual conference (http://bavs2016.co.uk/) is fast approaching.
The panel has already generated interest from scholars of women's travel writing, the history of tourism, colonial settler poetry and urban travel in Victorian periodicals.
We are now just short of generating two panels on the topic. I therefore encourage interested scholars working in related fields to submit a proposal on any aspect of travel and the Victorian periodical for consideration by 21 February 2016.
What role do religion and secularization play in the rise of the novel? This seminar takes up the insights of postsecular studies to help scholars explore this question in new ways: in Misty Anderson's words, reading religion into rather than out of history, and as Danièle Hervieu-Léger puts it, attending to signs of religion's profound and often surprising transformations in modernity.
Call for contributors: Where is Adaptation? A few (3-4) more articles needed, particularly those focusing in some way on marginalized countries, artists, cultures, works, or material.
Call for Papers: Word and Text – A Journal of Literary Studies and Linguistics, VI (2016)

DEADLINE EXTENDED MARCH 11. The Goldsmiths Graduate Festival is an important celebration of postgraduate research in Goldsmiths and in universities nationally and internationally. It is organised by and for postgraduate research students as a vital platform to present and share their work.

Animals, fairies, and toys, and their relation to concepts of childhood or the child, fill the pages of British children's fiction in the twentieth century. While childhood was often portrayed in the Victorian period as that of "vulnerability and victimization . . . a comparatively brief, difficult step on the path to adulthood" (Gavin and Humphries), literary representations of childhood from the Edwardian period onward emphasize less on the child's proper relation to the adult world, but more on his or her ability/willingness to cultivate affective ties with a host of nonhuman others, as represented in such works as E. Nesbit's "Five Children and It," J. M.
The 2nd Language, Culture and Literature Workshop aims to bring together academics, teachers, and artists to exchange information and share their experiences, ideas, and research results about all aspects of arts, social sciences,cultural studies, film and media studies, history and interdisciplinary studies. The workshops will be held on the days of June 8-10, 2016 at Akdeniz University's Faculty of Letters, Department of English Language and Literature, Antalya, Turkey. Academics, independent researchers, teachers, artists/performers, and graduate students are invited to submit and present their work.
This panel seeks papers on literary and visual representations of vulnerable bodies and of their inscription in various historical and socio-political frameworks of care.
Send a 300 word abstract and 1 page CV by March 15 to Andreea Marculescu (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Amit Baishya (email@example.com).
