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?

1st International Conference of the University of Banja Luka (BiH) in cooperation with De Montfort University (UK)
CELLS - CONFERENCE ON ENGLISH LANGUAGE AND LITERARY STUDIES
GOING AGAINST THE GRAIN
Contemporary Approaches to the Study of Language, Literature and Culture
Banja Luka, 6 – 8 June 2013
CALL FOR PAPERS
The American Literature Association (ALA) conference will be held in Boston, May 23-26, 2013. The Emily Dickinson International Society will sponsor two sessions at the conference.
Session 1) Dickinson and Queer Theory
We welcome papers that consider Dickinson's place within the queer literary canon. For example, panelists might examine the role queer theory has played in Dickinson scholarship, or the influence of Dickinson scholarship on the emergence of queer theory in the 1990s. Alternatively, papers might offer queer readings of Dickinson's texts, or explore Dickinson's 'queer' readings of the works of other writers.
Session 2) Open Topic
We welcome papers on any aspect of Emily Dickinson's life or literary work.
