Entangled Children: Technology, Media-Enhancement, and Storytelling in Children's Culture
Renascence is a scholarly journal published by Marquette University. We publish articles that explore how literature is informed by and contributes to our understanding of fundamental questions concerning values – be it moral philosophy, theology, or spirituality. Articles can discuss literature of any literary period, though we do focus on literature of the English language. To submit, please send a 3,000 to 7,500 word article to Renascence@marquette.edu.
This is a call for papers from postgraduate students and early career researchers for a new interdisciplinary discussion group (starting in the upcoming academic year at King's College London) which focuses on the interactions between the human and nonhuman, discussing relevant articles and providing a forum for graduate students and staff to present papers.
Proposals for papers are invited for a collection entitled Captivity / Writing / Unbound. We are particularly interested in papers that explore and extend the traditional boundaries of the study of captivity writing—such writing conceived generically, geographically, historically, or in disciplinary terms—and that do so through a triangulation of the three operant terms: Captivity, Writing, Unbound.

An American Abroad: Woody Allen in Europe
This session welcomes papers on Woody Allen's films set in Europe. Is his seven-year relocation to the cities of London, Barcelona, Paris, and Rome an artistic Renaissance or merely a nostalgic/narcissistic attempt for a lost heyday that some (like critic Jonathan Rosenbaum) claim never even existed?
The extended deadline is May 12th. Please send an abstract of roughly 200 words. Thank you!
