New Voices is an interdisciplinary graduate student conference hosted by Georgia State University's English department and sponsored by the department's Graduate English Association. The conference is designed to provide emerging and experienced graduate scholars in the humanities with a forum for sharing their latest research. While the conference has a different suggested theme each year, adherence to the suggested theme is not at all necessary to be considered for inclusion in the conference. New Voices invites papers on all topics and themes related not only to English studies, but all other humanities disciplines as well as the social sciences and political science.
"It is generally recognized that the current era of globalization is one in which economics has triumphed over politics." - Brett Neilson, "Cultural Studies and Giorgio Agamben," New Cultural Studies: Adventures in Theory
In celebration of its 50th Anniversary, the Ohio University School of Interdisciplinary will hold an international conference on the past, present, and future of interdisciplinary arts. Interdisciplinarity is based on the deep affinity of all branches of knowledge and provides a site for exploring this affinity. In the dynamic current world, as the boundaries between the arts become increasingly permeable, scholars recognize the methodological importance of multidisciplinary scholarship to facilitate our historical and critical understanding of the arts.

The New Union (www.new-union.co.uk), an online literary magazine, requires articles for online publication.
We welcome articles on any and all subjects and genres, and from any period in history.
We also invite articles that look at current news, events, politics, etc and connect them with literary topics past and present.
Articles should be approximately 1,000-2,000 words in length.
The only stipulation is that every article must be interesting and unique. No dull, academically formal articles required! We want funny, irreverent, and witty articles (unless your specialist subject is death, in which case you are excused!).
Share Your Best Practices with Colleagues Across the Disciplines.
Whether you're a new or a seasoned faculty member, your voice can make a difference in the success of your fellow-faculty as well as your students. The Atrium seeks your reflections of challenges and successes in your classroom. This issue looks at the good, the bad, and the ugly of our classroom experiences.
CFP: An Introvert in an Extrovert World—Edited Collection
Fifty years after the publication of the iconic picture book Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak, the public imagination is still captivated by Max's story of adventure, mischief, power, journey, fantasy, repression, surrealism, and illusion in place and time. The expansion of Sendak's imagination for this title has led to a feature length film and to a popular culture phenomenon based on the impact of his work on readers. Likewise literary criticism in children's literature has continued to explore the importance of this work and its reverberations through the genre of children's literature.
The Children's Literature Society and the Association for the Study of American Indian Literature invite abstracts (of about 250 words) for a panel on Native American children's and young adult literature. We welcome critical analysis and surveys about historical fiction, cultural stories of family and community, school stories, stories of fine arts and artists and performers, stories of important political figures, and transcriptions of oral histories. Papers may address representations of Native communities in text and image, Native-authored texts, and broader trends in American children's and young adult literature.
