CFP: Conference Panel on Biblical Narrative – 10/1 abstracts, 4/8-11 conf

Michele Wilbert

As part of a proposed panel for the upcoming International Conference on Narrative, we are seeking papers on the general theme of Biblical narrative. Scholars are not limited to a specific period or genre, and may choose to compare/contrast Biblical material with other literary narratives. A grounding in narrative theory will help since this is primarily a conference for specialists, but it is not necessary for theory to be your primary area of study. We welcome scholars from all fields, and anticipate particular interest from those in English, cultural studies, and comparative/religious studies.

Wednesday, September 2, 2009 - 6:35pm
Precipitate Journal
  • As a literary and visual arts journal, Precipitate aims to better understand how language and art act as interpretive devices for an external world that is simultaneously present and absent, riveting and severe, earthy and complex, and that inspires humor, irony, fear, and joy. Precipitate explores non-traditional perspectives of the physical world, and is looking for submissions from writers and artists to investigate and destabilize ideas of place.
  • Call for fiction, non-fiction, poetry, photography, memoirs, book reviews, and interviews that engage and/or complicate human relationships to place.

    The Future of Women's Literature in Modernist Studies Roundtable (April 7-11) Deadline September 30

    Many modernist women writers, re-discovered after extensive recovery work undertaken in the past 20 years, have again fallen out of print. This roundtable addresses the question of what should come next for feminist scholars given the difficulty of keeping this work in print. Is recovery work still worthwhile? Or is it increasingly immaterial, replaced by interest in transnational writers or interdisciplinary inquiry? And what are some alternative avenues for scholarly inquiry for the writers that remain in the canon? Lastly, how does feminist work in modernist studies affect the scholarly work in other periods?

    CFP Affinities #4 – What is Radical Imagination: Horizons beyond "The Crisis"

    Edited by Alex Khasnabish and Max Haiven

    The social crises of neoliberalism, so evident and provocative throughout the rest of the world, have finally come "home" to the global North in the form of a cataclysmic financial crisis wreaking havoc on the lives of people, workers and communities, intensifying already intolerable injustices and inequalities and justifying the intensification of surveillance, policing and militarization.

    Over the past century, American fiction for girls has evolved in parallel with its youth culture. In life and literature, girls have been transfigured from elegant-mannered doyennes to chippy problem-solvers. This panel examines how classic and contemporary texts offer a continuum of expanded roles for girls, from wives-in-training to adventurers, detectives and heroines. Abstracts should examine specific text(s) that demonstrate the historical progression of female empowerment through reading. 500 word Abstract and CV by 9/30 to Sophie Lavin, NeMLA Women's Caucus Rep, SUNY Stony Brook: blavin@optonline.net.
