Archive Journal is now accepting project and essay proposals for the "Archives, Remixed" section of its upcoming fourth issue, "Publishing the Archive." This issue will examine how technological developments—from discrete digitization projects and databases to linked data and APIs for extensible machine-readability—are changing how we produce and publish archives and archival research.

Building the Degree: The Potential and Pitfalls of Establishing a B.A. Program in English During Uncertain Times

updated: 
Monday, April 15, 2013 - 8:02pm
SAMLA Special Session- November 8-10, Atlanta

This panel invites participants from any college or university where there is an interest in building a B.A. in English or establishing a new programmatic track within the discipline. Participants need not be at any particular point in the process, and we hope to incorporate a diverse array of experiences and viewpoints. In other words, participants may only be thinking about the possibility of creating a program or they might be on the other side of the process. This panel will also consider what types of programs should/need to be created to meet the changing needs of students in the 21st century. We hope that this session will produce a vibrant dialogue that will serve as a bridge to future cooperation.

[New Submission Deadline] Legacy: Mythology and Authenticity in the Humanities (29 April, 2013)

updated: 
Monday, April 15, 2013 - 3:43am
De Montfort University

This conference focuses on the influence of cultural 'legacies' within current humanities research. By highlighting the work of postgraduates and early career researchers, this interdisciplinary conference will examine the various ways in which 'legacies' are created, restructured, perpetuated and even rejected. It will also question whether newer disciplines respond to cultural mythologies by establishing their own 'legacy' as a means of achieving academic authentication.

Literary Identities: Kingdoms, Nations, Villages, Conference 3rd June 2013

updated: 
Sunday, April 14, 2013 - 4:09pm
King's College, London

This year, we are taking the theme of Kingdoms, Nations and Villages to explore how literature has represented, interpreted and subverted identities. Recent research at Kings (such as the Leverhulme funded Commodities and Culture Network as well as comparative literary scholarship in the Menzies Centre) has suggested that this theme would provoke a timely inter-Collegiate, inter-period critical discussion and conversation.

The Society for Utopian Studies Conference, Charleston, SC (Nov. 14-17th)

The Society for Utopian Studies

"Freedom and Utopia"
38th Annual Meeting
Francis Marion Hotel, Charleston, South Carolina
November 14-17, 2013

Scholars and artists are encouraged to present on the intersections between freedom and Utopia (but not exclusively). On this 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation we welcome papers that analyze the meaning of utopic freedom and the potential limits to that freedom. As the history surrounding the Proclamation suggests, utopian visions of freedom are often multi-vocal and conflicted. We thus encourage participants to explore the contradictions surrounding invocations of freedom on a variety of topics, from the earliest utopian visions to the speculations and yearnings of the 21st-century.

Cityscapes of the Future: Urban Spaces in Science Fiction

The city has played a pivotal role in science fiction narratives since the earliest days of the genre. Towering megastructures, dystopian urbanity and the otherworldly configurations of alien cities have contributed greatly to representations of imagined futures.

Our project aims to take a broad view of the science-fictional cityscape, in any medium (television, film, novels, comics/graphic novels, anime, video games, etc.).

All relevant topics are welcome; we encourage interdisciplinary and comparative perspectives, as well as discussions of non-Western texts. We are especially interested in the following subjects:
