UPDATE: Extended Deadline

In recent decades, Oscar Wilde has been theorized as a figure who
represented a historical shift or a displacement in how we think of
identity, gender, and sexuality. This panel invites papers that interrogate
these critical assumptions, broadly addressing Wilde's own thinking about
the relationship between history and identity. Papers may also focus on the
critical reception of Wilde from the early 20th century to the present.

This is a special session for the SCMLA 2009 conference in Baton Rouge, LA.
The theme of the conference is "Continuity and Displacement." A panel will
be chosen by February 20 and selected panels will be announced by March 2009.

Call for Papers

Peer English (ISSN 1746-5621) is a refereed academic journal, now in its
fourth year, published by members of the School of English at the
University of Leicester. Our remit is to publish leading research from
those academics at the very beginnings of their careers (graduate study,
post-doctoral research) through to those already established within the
community. This approach also includes the notion of ‘work in progress’
and we welcome contributions of high academic standards from those
currently involved in active research, be they doctoral candidates or
Heads of Departments.

“Upon those who step into the same rivers, different and again different
waters flow.”

Over 2500 years have passed, but Heraclitos’ wisdom remains salient. None
would deny that there are dominant movements and perspectives; yet, every
scholar must admit that the topography of the discipline is in continual
flux. Each year generates a new approach and a new trend â€" a new branch
from the old.
