The Kate Chopin International Society is seeking individual proposals for two sponsored panels at the 2013 American Literature Association conference in Boston, May 23-26, 2013.

The first panel, a roundtable on "Teaching Kate Chopin in Different Contexts," seeks short (seven-to eight-minute) papers/remarks that address either teaching Chopin juxtaposed with works/genres or in courses she isn't always associated with or in educational settings such as continuing education programs, prisons, women's shelters, literacy programs, etc. Proposals should include a title, your name and affiliation, and a paragraph about your proposed remarks.

CFP: Un/Natural Histories Issue 16 FORUM

Sunday, December 30, 2012 - 2:19pm
FORUM Postgraduate Journal

Although European thought has traditionally placed 'nature' in opposition to 'culture', as the title UN/NATURAL HISTORIES suggests, the world in which we find ourselves and the narratives we tell about it can also be seen to stand in a shifting and mutually influential relationship to one another. Recent work in eco-criticism has emphasised the importance of the relationship between our environment and the literary work we produce; while in popular culture, programmes such as the BBC's Unnatural Histories (2011) investigate the ways in which even the most pristine 'natural' spaces can be seen as human constructions.
