ACLA, 4-7 April 2013, Toronto "Packing and Unpacking: On Portable Belongings and Identities "(DEADLINE: NOV. 15 2012)

American Comparative Literature Association

Packing, both literally and figuratively, marks the first ritual of any journey; to unpack, likewise, marks the last ritual of arrival. No matter why we set out, whether in search of adventure, of ourselves, or of a cure, we always carry something along with us. In fact, it will be these things which will, in great measure, define the journey. How do we "pack" our belongings and our identities? How do these transform the spaces we encounter along the way? How are these transformed by the spaces in which they are situated? What do we take with us to give us comfort when we leave our comfort zones?

"Shaw at Home," a conference of international scholars, which will take place mostly in the village of Ayot St. Lawrence north of London, reminds us that "Shaw's Corner" in Ayot was the Shaws' home longer, 44 years, than any other residence. "Shaw's Corner" is now maintained partly as a museum and as the stage for annual productions of Shaw's plays on the back lawn. The Shaws also had several residences in London, of course, and the conference will spend a day in London touring Shavian sites there, starting at the London School of Economics. The Keynote Address will be by Sir Michael Holroyd.

Northern Arizona University Graduate English Organization

The year 2013 brings with it a chance to put the teleological
bluster of 2012 behind us, to embrace a new era that asks us to
look ahead instead of back. This new year's connotations of
both bad luck and cosmic transition have provided us with the
opportunity to embrace the unexpected in our work, to discard
the old in favor of the new as we find new directions, or they
find us. Unexpected discoveries can be potentially devastating,
even world-rearranging, but they are always enlightening. This
year's conference supports the work of the many students who
will be pushing and transgressing boundaries in their work,
specifically boundaries from which there is no return once they
