Jonas Prida/ College of St. Joseph

Seeking two proposals for a multi-disciplinary collection of essays on Conan. I already have the book contract and need the essays to round the manuscript out.

Here are some potential topics, but I am open to good ideas not on the list:

Conan after de Camp and Carter
The Conan industry
Feminist approaches to Conan
Appropriation of Conan in rock/heavy metal
Conan the television show
Masculinity/Male studies and barbarism

Essays should be in the 8000-10000 word range. An agreed-upon style manual will be send to all contributors.

The Languages of James Joyce, NeMLA convention, April 7-10, 2011

Salvatore Pappalardo, Maria Kager/Rutgers University

This panel welcomes papers investigating Joyce's multilingualism. What are the aesthetic and political implications of crossing language boundaries, narrating through multilingual puns and polyglot pastiche in Joyce's works? Suitable topics include the author's complicated relation with Irish, the challenge of translating Joyce's multilingual texts, the relationship between Joyce's multilingualism and cosmopolitanism, and comparisons between Joyce and other writers.

Comparative and interdisciplinary approaches are welcome.

The NeMLA conference, hosted by Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey, will take place on April 7-10, 2011.
