"FOR TO TRAVEL HOPEFULLY IS BETTER THAN TO ARRIVE" – TALES OF IMMIGRATION AND DISPLACEMENT--South Atlantic Modern Language Association Conference, Durham, NC--November 9-11, 2012
Please note the new deadline: May 31!
The University of South Dakota's 2012 Biennial Women and Gender Research Conference invites submissions on the theme Gender and Conflict: Unraveling Paths to Change.
Organizers seek proposals for individual papers or panels on conflicts reflecting the ways in which individuals negotiate gender and agency across space and time. Conflicts may be personal, social, military, generational, familial, postcolonial, economic, psychological, or ethical; they may be the result of cultural, ethnic, racial, and religious expectations, rigidity of sex roles, war, inequality, colonization, or other factors.
This permanent section invites papers on any topic regarding Canadian Literature, but especially welcomes proposals addressing the conference theme of "debt," broadly understood.
Please send 250-word abstracts and CV by June 4 to Cynthia Wallace, email@example.com
Chair: Cynthia Wallace, St. Thomas More College, University of Saskatchewan, firstname.lastname@example.org

Recently children's literature has begun to focus on death as a physical reality, philosophical concept, and social construct rather than as a tool to achieve a didactic or narrative agenda. Proposals are invited for a panel on the verbal and visual depiction of death in children's literature. Ideally, this panel will have a range of theoretical perspectives and literatures from varied cultural backgrounds, decades, genres, and media forms. Please submit a 250-500 word abstract and brief biographical statement to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 30, 2012.
Deadline extended through June 4th:
Paper proposals are sought for a panel presentation on Illustrated Texts, in keeping with the MMLA 2012 conference theme of "Debt."
At least since Mark Twain left it to E. W. Kemble to depict the hero of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, authors and their texts have owed a debt to illustration. At least since James Agee accompanied Walker Evans to photograph Depression-era Alabama sharecroppers, authors have left it to illustrators to depict indebtedness in literary illustrations. Writers have sometimes been indebted to illustrators, while writers and illustrators have sometimes conspired, on the literary market, to depict economic debt on the open market. .
The Digital Americanist Society seeks speakers who will articulate a clear, interpretive intervention that digital scholarship has made (or could make) in their areas of study. Our goal will not be to describe digital projects, but instead to demonstrate how those projects advance, supplement, or disrupt the scholarly conversations of our respective literary subfields. We encourage "non-DH" scholars whose work has benefited from DH scholarship to contribute. Submit abstracts to Ryan Cordell, Northeastern University, email@example.com, by September 30, 2012.
