"… Oh! I would not tell you what is behind the black veil for the world! Are not you wild to know?"
"Oh! Yes, quite; what can it be? But do not tell me — I would not be told upon any account. I know it must be a skeleton, I am sure it is Laurentina's skeleton. Oh! I am delighted with the book! I should like to spend my whole life in reading it..."
- Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

The seventh annual AEGIS (Association of English Graduate Instructors and Students) graduate conference invites paper proposals on interdisciplinary topics in revelation, revulsion, and revolution in literature, cinema, the writing process, popular culture and art, or in creative works of short fiction and poetry that explore this theme.

Call for papers: Dandelion Journal on Filth

CALL FOR PAPERS: FILTH

From the Wellcome Collection's 2011 exhibition Dirt: the filthy reality of everyday life, via Deutsche Börse Photography Prize 2012 nominee Pieter Hugo's images of Ghanaian refuse tips, to Harmony Korine's Trash Humpers (2010), filth is having its cultural moment.

Filth has a wide range of material associations, including dirt, waste, rubbish, and the human body. Filth has moral connotations: of sexuality, but also in the context of political discourse. Filth is unstable and insidious; definitions of what constitutes filth are subjective and its boundaries are impossible to circumscribe.
