BOOK TITLE: New Studies in Eighteenth-Century Literature and Culture.

New Studies in Eighteenth-Century Literature and Culture is a collection of essays featuring the work of established and emerging scholars in the areas of eighteenth-century commerce, race, law, genre and gender. The century that witnessed capitalistic growth, slavery and, in some countries, the abolition movement, the emerging of newly distinctive literary genres and fashionably defined gender roles is no longer understood as simply the time of Augustan restrictions and budding Romantic sensibilities.

Call for papers for a panel on Animal Rights and Deepwater Horizon at the 2nd Annual Florida Gulf Coast University Humanities and Sustainability Conference (October 8-9 at FGCU, Fort Myers, FL)

The U.S. popular media had constructed the 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico as an environmental, ecological, economic, and even political disaster. While all of these are undeniably fair readings of the catastrophe, these same outlets have not expended much of an effort considering the effect that this event can and should have on how we perceive our duties and responsibilities toward the individual animals impacted by it.

Beyond Adaptation: Appropriations, Allusions and Intertextuality One-Day Postgraduate Symposium Thusrday 27th January 2011

De Montfort University, Leicester, England

As the field of adaptation studies progresses away from questions of 'infidelity' and the 'betrayal' of source material, a new set of disciplines and theories have emerged to help us understand the relationship between texts. It is now understood that artistic works are not single entities created independently of culture, but can be understood as an amalgamation of influences, allusions, and borrowings from previous texts. This intertextual model for the mapping of texts and their influences provokes questions about the very nature of adaptation. What is adaptation, and how does it differ from intertextuality? Do boundaries between texts exist? How have multiplicity and intertextuality altered perceptions of storytelling across mediums?
