The following CFP is for a panel at the Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association annual conference in San Diego on Nov 1-3rd, 2013.

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!

Korey Jackson / Archive Journal

Archive Journal is now accepting project and essay proposals for the "Archives, Remixed" section of its upcoming fourth issue, "Publishing the Archive."

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

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)

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

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.
