Translation and Interpreting Studies and English Language and Literature Departments at Cankaya University in Ankara warmly invite our colleagues/students to send proposals for a 20-minute paper on English Literature and Translation Studies.

The William Dean Howells Society welcomes submissions to round out two panels at the 2012 American Literature Association in San Francisco, which is being held over Memorial Day weekend.
Panel 1: The Late Howells
We are looking for papers that focuses on Howells's late work. Though scholarship on his novels through A Hazard of New Fortunes is abundant, Howells remained prolific until his death in 1920. Why has his work after 1890 gotten relatively little attention? What works deserve another (or even a first) look? What of Howells' work as a playwright? Or his work in the short story genre? How does ignoring the late Howells' alter his position in American literary history, or perhaps even complicate American literary history?

Re-conceptualizing Cartography: Space-Time Compression and Narrative Mapping
University of South Florida Graduate Conference
13–14 April 2012
Accepting Christopher Haigh's concept of English reformations, this collection of essays will offer scholarship focused on women's creative undoings and reimaginings during the period of religious reformations in England between 1534 and 1829. The collection will explore the inspiration for women's actions during this period of reformations whether those actions were for the conservative or evangelical cause. The aim of this collection is to expose the consequences and the contradictions inherent in reimagining religious boundaries which cannot but manifest internally in the individual while simultaneously doing so externally in a society's political and social structures.
