The Performance Studies Focus Group (PSFG) of the Association of Theater in Higher Education (ATHE) conference invites submissions of papers for its Emerging Scholars Panel. The theme of this year's conference, which will take place in Orlando, Florida, August 1-4, 2013, is P[L]AY: Performance, Pleasure, and Pedagogy.

[UPDATE] 'The Victorian Environment', AVSA, University of Melbourne, 6-8 Feb 2013

Friday, November 30, 2012 - 8:23pm
Australasian Victorian Studies Association

Deadline for submissions extended until 12 December 2012.

With the pressures of industrialism and the clustering of workers in urban centres, the Victorians were acutely aware that their environment was changing. Torn between nostalgia for a countryside that was in jeopardy and exhilaration at the rapidity with which their surroundings altered, Victorian literature and culture reflects a world undergoing radical change. Colonization and assisted emigration schemes expanded the scope of the environment still further, pushing the boundaries of the home environment on an unprecedented scale. These untamed physical environments enabled new freedoms, but also posed hostile challenges that invited attempts to control the natural world.

UPDATE: The submission deadline has been extended to December 15th.

Statement of Journal:

Burning Daylight is an annual student journal published through Sonoma State University's Department of English graduate program dedicated to providing a place for the emergent voices in the field of literature. We publish original critical and theoretical essays from B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. students that represent the current work, trends, and thoughts in literary criticism, composition, and rhetoric.

This issue does not have a theme so to encourage representation of a wide array of interests and ideas within the field.

[UPDATE] Deadline Approaching for Stet Journal Issue on 'Dis/Orientation'

Friday, November 30, 2012 - 5:55am
King's College London

Stet, the online postgraduate journal of the English Department at King's College London, is now accepting submissions from current postgraduate students for its third peer-reviewed publication. In this issue, we will present articles from an international pool of students on the concept of dis/orientation. We seek to explore the question of how we are and have been located or dislocated in space, time, and history. Which parts of our personal, social, cultural, geographical, genetic, or technological landscape orient us? What incidents construct our conception of ourselves and our environments?

Neo-Victorian Cities: Re-Imagining Utopian and Dystopian Metropolises (ed. collection), abstracts due: 28 Feb.2013

Friday, November 30, 2012 - 5:51am
Dr Marie-Luise Kohlke (Series Editor), Swansea University, UK

We invite contributions on the theme of Neo-Victorian Cities for the fourth volume in Rodopi's Neo-Victorian Series, to be published in 2014. This collection will examine the retrospective presentation of nineteenth-century metropolises in the light of contemporary approaches to urban politics and geopolitics, exploring links between the city and the past's paradoxical 'modernity', now obsolete. If the metropolis is seen as a synecdoche of the world, how does this conception reiterate or contradict nineteenth-century views of the city as a synecdoche of nations and/or Empire?
