Julie Tharp and Susan MacCallum-Whitcomb write in This Giving Birth:
"Now that the baby boom generation has come of age in America, mothers are suddenly back in Vogue - and in Time, The New Yorker, and The Wall Street Journal too. Indeed, mothers are suddenly everywhere and their influence is everywhere felt. Pollsters and policy-makers count them; manufacturers cater to them; and corporations work to accommodate them. Marketers adjust to meet their demands and desires, while medical practitioners keep pace by emphasizing prenatal education and offering non-traditional birthing options.

Call For Papers:
The inaugural launch of this global research and publications project on Writing will explore the many facets of writing from an interdisciplinary perspective. It seeks to explore the many intertextual and intersemiotic facets of writing as they exists in the digital age but also taking into account the historical forces, process and mechanisms, their relationships to contemporary writing forms, and the possibilities of future directions. 'All writing comes from somewhere' and with this axiom in mind this project will not only examine the pragmatic elements of writing but also the complex issues concerning the metafunctions of writing as a creative and purposeful process across various disciplines.

Clues: A Journal of Detection

Submission deadline: December 29, 2011
Guest editor: A. B. Emrys (University of Nebraska–Kearney)

Paranormal mysteries often feature the usual suspects (ghosts, vampires, werewolves, and so forth) but also branch into the gothic, spirituality (as in Tony Hillerman's skinwalkers, Michael Gruber's shaman trilogy), and other magic realism, as well as biochemical transformation (as in the Relic series) and a wide variety of mystery hybrids with horror and dark fantasy. For this theme issue of _Clues_, potential contributors are urged to think outside the normal boxes. Thematic analysis might include (but is not limited to):
