Authorspress, New Delhi
Suggested themes: Aesthetics of Repair, Technologies of Repair, Post-Colonial Reparations, Reparative Justice
What does it mean to repair something? Is it to restore function, to compensate for a fault, deterioration, or deficiency, or can the concept be expanded to account for a
general condition whereby a constitutive fault is repaired by art, technology, justice or invention?
This book aims to mediate between concrete 'cultures of repair' and more abstract conceptions in the spheres of philosophy and psychoanalysis. The following is an indication of the conceptual range of 'the repair' which we intend to explore in this edited collection. Submissions may address the following themes, although they are not limited to them:

The Ironies of Alchemy in Early Modern English Literature

The Ironies of Alchemy in Early Modern English Literature
Chaucer's "Canon's Yeoman's Tale" is the first great satire of alchemy in English literature, but in its final lines it nevertheless suggests that the Philosopher's Stone is a genuine secret deeply hidden in the knowledge of Christ. As Stanton Linden observes, Chaucer's sustained ridicule of alchemy is thus accompanied by the suggestion that the opus alchymicum is not entirely a fool's errand.

IRISH STUDIES at SAMLA- Nov. 8-10, 2013
Writing Ireland: Identity, Memory, and Place
In keeping with the special focus of SAMLA 85, we welcome papers that focus on the ways Irish identity, space, and memory are shaped through conventionally understood literary genres (poetry, fiction, drama, memoir) as well as work from related fields, including but not limited to art, critical theory, folklore, and film studies. This panel seeks to address recent trends in scholarship and the ways Irish identity (systemic or individual) and space are constructed and defined.
By June 1, 2013, please send abstracts of no more than 300 words to Sarah Dyne, Georgia State University, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Papers are welcome on any Slavic language, literature or culture, including film and comparative literature topics. By June 15, 2013, please send abstract (or enquiry for more information) to Karen Rosneck, University of Wisconsin-Madison (email@example.com)
UPDATE: I have received many innovative proposals so far, but several key authors I would like to see included remain unclaimed, such as J.R.R. Tolkien, Diana Wynne Jones, J.K. Rowling, Madeleine L'Engle, Ursula Le Guin, Terry Pratchett, and Suzanne Collins, among a few others. Also please note that depending on the submissions, I may expand the "Pathfinders" section to include Victorian fantasy (i.e., George MacDonald, William Morris, etc.) as an additional precursor to modern fantasy. There is also a strong possibility I will add a new section for "Fantasy on Film." If you have an interest in any of these categories, or those below (see full CFP), please contact me at the email address provided.
