The Mystery/Detective Fiction section of the Southwest/Texas Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association invites proposals for the 2010 conference in Albuquerque. The exact days/times of our panels are yet to be determined, but the conference is always held Wed.-Sat. in mid February.
We invite proposals on any topic involving Detective/Mystery fiction. However, we especially invite proposals on authors who write in less commonly spoken languages; proposals dealing with female, minority, and GLTB authors; and proposals which analyze literature and/or film from different literary standpoints (feminist, psychoanalytical, Marxist, etc.). In other words, Detective/Mystery fiction is more than Sherlock Holmes.
Call for Proposals and Essays
Romance Fiction and American Culture: Love as the Practice of Freedom?
Last April, Princeton University hosted an unprecedented two-day conference on popular romance fiction and American culture. Gathering scholars, authors, editors, and bloggers, this interdisciplinary gathering featured panels on romance and history (both political and literary), romance and religion, romance and sexuality, and romance and race; each explored the ways that popular romance fiction has reflected, and also helped shape, American culture from the late 18th century to the present.

CALL FOR PAPERS "New Worlds: Cross-Cultural Exchange East and West" Graduate Conference in Medieval and Renaissance StudiesApril 17, 2010 University of Maryland, College Park
Keynote speaker: Bruce Holsinger, Professor of English and Music, University of Virginia
The Department of English at the University of Maryland and the Medieval and Early Modern Studies Institute at George Washington University invite graduate students from across the humanities to submit presentation abstracts for "New Worlds," a one-day conference to be held on April 17, 2010.
The Borderlines postgraduateconference series traditionally explores the theme of marginal, transgressive,and shifting identities in the Middle Ages. This year's conference seeks toexamine the anxieties surrounding these ever-changing identities. These anxietiesgave rise to an increasing number of attempts to control and (re)define theindividual's role within community, Church, and social strata through sumptuarylaws, Episcopal decrees (e.g. Arundel's Constitutions),devotional guides (e.g. The Lay FolksCatechism), etc. This year's Borderlines seeks papers which deal with theseattempts to regulate and define the individual and the community as well as thespaces in which people interacted.
