Wednesday, January 23, 2013 - 5:46am
Queen Mary, University of London

Faced with pressure to quantify and possibly to commodify our research and our teaching through the narrow and potentially homogenizing parameters of concepts such as 'impact', many researchers and teachers in English departments seem to retreat from the challenge of affirming what it is that we value in the study and teaching of English.

Repetition - with a difference? :: May 9-10, 2013

Tuesday, January 22, 2013 - 3:59pm
English Graduate Conference at University of Toronto

Last year we heard Barack Obama say "Yes, we can" for a second time, and saw Youtube viewers watch and re-watch Psy's "Gangnam Style" for the billionth time (really!): we live surrounded by repetition. As scholars embedded in a culture obsessed with imitation, parody, and countless other forms of re- acting, we ought to ask one another "what is the significance of repetition?" When is it a form of questioning or deconstruction, and when is it simply re(in)statement or obsession? We invite you to join us as we explore the ontological, political, ethical, and literary implications of repetition.

The California Journal of Women Writers

The California Journal of Women Writers is a new online journal featuring original reviews and criticism of women's literature from across North America, as well as interviews with authors and commentary on critiques published elsewhere. We do not focus on any one type of literature, as long as the text is written by a female author and is of interest to TCJWW editors.

Our intent is to provide a space for enthusiastic dialogue supporting a wide variety of women writers. We invite our readers to unite, discuss, and join our conversation with insightful comments. This is a space devoted to fostering and enhancing the visibility of North American female authors.

Call for Papers for Collection: Captivity / Writing / Unbound

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.
