CALL FOR PAPERS NOW OPEN
DEADLINE EXTENDED TO JANUARY 24, 2011
Keynote: BRIGID DOHERTY, Princeton University
Call for Proposals: "Collections and Collaborations"
*Extended Deadline: Jan. 31, 2011
We are issuing a Call for Proposals for scholarly and creative submissions for an International Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference entitled "Collections and Collaborations" to be held at Indiana University – Bloomington from March 24th – 26th, 2011 (hosted by the graduate students of the IU Department of English).
UPSTAGE, a peer-reviewed online publication dedicated
to research in turn-of-the-century dramatic literature,
theatre, and theatrical culture, seeks submissions for its second issue scheduled for the spring or summer of 2011.
This is a development of the pages published under this name as part of THE OSCHOLARS, and will henceforth be an
independently edited journal in the oscholars group
published at www.oscholars.com, as part of our expanding
coverage of the different cultural manifestations of the
fin de siècle.
Chapter proposals are welcomed for a proposed volume entitled The Uses of Excess in Visual and Material Culture, 1700-2010. The objective of the collection will be to illuminate the many ways that excess as a historically contingent discursive construct has influenced the production and consumption of visual and material culture. Excess has long been perceived as a negative characteristic, and has therefore been used to frame various groups and individuals as morally corrupt or degenerate. Alternatively, excess has been embraced by some in transgressive, even empowering, ways, and as a strategy for self-fashioning. Guiding questions for this project will include: Who has been represented as 'excessive'? How has excess been represented?
We are seeking papers that consider Cooper and his relationships with those figures who inhabited his intellectual and cultural landscape. Paper and presentation topics may include but are not limited to:

Competing Representations of the Frontier
Responses to Indian Relocation
The Anti-Rent War
Populism and Democracy
We are happy, of course, to consider any proposals that address Cooper's work and his time.
Papers should be 8-10 pages in length (20 minute presentation). Send proposals via e-mail to:

The NJCEA is soliciting papers considering a broad range of literary and composition topics for its annual conference. Paper proposals are now being accepted for the following panels (contact session convener listed below).
Women and Work in Literature:
How do writers represent the work of being women—where "work" is defined broadly to encompass not only paid labor inside and outside the home, but also the work of performing femininity and domesticity? How do writers address social assumptions about who should be performing work, and for what purpose?
We welcome submissions in U.S. and British literature, though we will consider submission from other traditions.
The Graduate Students of the Department of Comparative Literature at the University of California, Irvine present an interdisciplinary graduate student conference on April 29th, 2011.
