   We encourage abstracts discussing the literary representation of conflicts during this period, such as those between Protestants and Catholics, between the supporters and detractors of the emergence of drama, or between different economic classes. As well, abstracts which "encompass" various approaches, such as cultural or theoretical analysis to this period, are welcome.
   
  Deadline for submissions: January 30, 2006
   
  The 11th Annual Graduate English Society Conference will be held March 31st-April 1st, 2006 at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, TX. The theme of this year’s conference, “En(compass)ing Language: Interplay within English Studies,” reminds us that the interaction between participants in the various fields of English studies produces new ideas and foundations on which to build our future research. We hope that this conference will encourage this type of camaraderie.
   
  We are please to welcome Dr. Thomas Nunnally of Auburn University as keynote speaker. Dr. Nunnally is co-editor of From the Gulf States and Beyond: The Legacy of Lee Pederson and LAGS and Language Variety in the South Revisited as well as articles and essays related to the study of sociolinguistic forces behind dialect change and lexical change. The keynote speech will be delivered Saturday, April 1st at noon and will be followed by a question and answer session.
   
  The Texas Tech GES Conference has been pleased to welcome students from throughout the United States, as well as countries abroad. We are looking forward to sharing research and fostering discussion among students. Lodging and registration details will be available on the GES Conference website.
