Reminder: "The Paradise of the Learned": Interdisciplinary Education in Nineteenth-Century Literature

'The remark was sufficient to withdraw Jude's attention from the imaginative world he had lately inhabited, in which an abstract figure ... was steeping his mind in a sublimation of the arts and sciences, and making his calling and election sure to a seat in the paradise of the learned' (Thomas Hardy, Jude the Obscure).

CALL FOR PAPERS
South Atlantic Modern Language Association (SAMLA)
November 6-8, 2009
Renaissance Atlanta Hotel Downtown
Atlanta, GA

Deadline: May 1, 2009

JUSTICE AND MERCY HAVE KISSED

When exploring the issue of human rights, two rallying cries are often heard. The voice of justice insists that mercy can only be had in a world of moral standards, while the call to mercy responds that justice can only condemn in a world that needs redemption. And yet, Christians are called to hold these two contrary impulses in careful balance – called to reconcile the irreconcilable.

[UPDATE]:MLA, Philadelphia 2009: British graphic novels and comics.

Deadline for abstracts extended until March 20th, 2009.

Abstracts are invited on British graphic novels and comics.

According to the New York Times, Britain finally "embrace(d) the graphic novel" in 2007, supposedly many years behind the rest of the reading world. The British graphic novel industry is perceived to be dwarfed by its American and continental counterparts, despite the success of Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore, publishing houses like Jonathan Cape and the patronage of Posy Simmonds by The Guardian. In what ways is it appropriate to talk about a distinctly British tradition of sequential art?
