With the publication of Lost Girls and 25,000 Years of Erotic Freedom, the centrality of love and sex in Alan Moore's work has become indisputable. Thus far, however, little scholarly attention has been paid to this facet of his work. This collection, provisionally titled *Lost Loves: Why Men and Women Make It (or Don't) in the Work of Alan Moore*, aims to remedy that situation.

Special Issue on SF, Fantasy, and Myth
http://www.duke.edu/~gc24/americanliterature.html
DEADLINE: 31 May 2010

More than one commentator has mentioned that science fiction as a form is where theological narrative went after Paradise Lost, and this is undoubtedly true…The form is often used as a way of acting out the consequences of a theological doctrine….Extraterrestrials have taken the place of angels, demons, fairies and saints, though it must be said that this last group is now making a comeback.
—Margaret Atwood, "Why We Need Science Fiction"

While we have many accounts of reading and the emerging middle class in eighteenth-century England, our understanding of literacy for domestic servants is less clear. There is evidence that a range of men and women servants read for pleasure and self-improvement. Ironically, as the number of domestic servants who were able to read grew steadily, writers became aware of how the text can affect moral character.

[UPDATE] Consuming the Past: Library Resources for PGRs - An Interdisciplinary Conference and Training Day

updated: 
Wednesday, May 12, 2010 - 9:13am
full name / name of organization: 
Durham, Newcastle and Northumbria Universities

As researchers we 'consume' texts, reading, interpreting and reusing material found in archives or specialist electronic resources. Libraries are a key tool in this process. Library-based research is no longer restricted to the book, but also encompasses archived materials, electronic databases and local resources. This conference provides an opportunity to explore both the practical and theoretical issues arising from attempts to understand the past: training sessions will investigate the use of archival resources in the arts and humanities whilst panellists will also consider how texts themselves conceptualise and appropriate the past.
