Proposed Panel: Renaissance Girls
Renaissance Society of America Conference
San Francisco, March 23-26, 2006

We are looking for one paper that addresses the topic of Renaissance
girls for a proposed panel at the 2006 Renaissance Society of America
Conference. Proposals are welcome from all disciplines and need not be
limited to England.

The panel aims to bring together the emerging field of Girls Studies with
the burgeoning scholary interest in Renaissance childhood. What was the
place of female children in Renaissance culture and society? How were
they represented in literature, drama, and art? And how did girlhood
compare to boyhood?

Texas Issue

The Texas Observer calls Texas "the strangest state in the Union." It
is also in many ways America's most significant state: for better or
worse the Texas models for government, business, religion, and education
have dominated the nation in recent years. Why? Where did all
this.this.strangeness.weirdness.power.come from? While it may appear
from a distance that Texas is a monolithic entity, it is not; rather, it
is a collection of constantly interacting and often warring individuals,
cultures, and geographies. What the are the stories, the poems, the
songs that live and lurk beneath the surface of Texas?

Oxford Magazine is seeking poetry and fiction submissions for the
latest incarnation of this award-winning journal. Recently
established as a web-based publication, Oxford Magazine is the home of
Miami University's burgeoning literary cohort, a cadre of students and
professors who are committed to pushing poetry, prose and each other.
This new format allows us to include video and sound files, giving the
reader a better idea of what the poets and writers of contemporary
arenas are up to. We are also interested in publishing critical work
as well, from experimental poetics to formalist manifestos.

CFP: Literature and the Addicted Subject (11/15/05; collection)

Comitini, Patricia Prof.

We're soliciting papers for a volume tentatively titled Literature and
the Addicted Subject, 1700-Present. This volume will examine how the
post-Romantic conception of literature constructs both the possibility
and our understanding of addiction. While there are collections and
books that discuss the addictions of authors or representations of
addiction, the focus of this book is substantially different: it seeks
to examine how addiction is a historical phenomenon that is enabled by
particular ideological and cultural preconditions. Thus, we do not
assume addiction's existence prima facie, and do not assume it is one
thing at all times. Addiction needs particular historical preconditions:

Tying Down Almodovar: new perspectives on the cinema of Pedro Almodovar

Edited by Tamar Jeffers McDonald and John Mercer

Introduction
Pedro Almodovar is now widely recognised as the most famous and successful
Spanish film director since Bunuel. With a career spanning 30 years and
including a body of work in excess of 25 films, the time seems ripe for a
comprehensive appraisal of his career, thematic themes and concerns and
his significance both within academic discourse around cinema, within
Spanish culture and as one of the key contemporary directors of
international cinema.
