The year 2024 will mark the centenary of William H. Gass (1924-2017), and a collection of essays examining the work of the influential author and educator will be published by Twelve Winters Press, edited by long-time Gass scholar Ted Morrissey. Gass -- who was born in Fargo, ND, grew up in Ohio, and taught primarily at Purdue University and Washington University in St. Louis, home of the William H. Gass papers -- is perhaps best known for his massive and controversial novel The Tunnel (1995), famously 26 years in the writing and winner of the American Book Award (1996).

CFP: Altered Animals: Posthumanism and Technology in 20th and 21st Century Discourse and Narratives
According to Descartes’ views of animals, animals are to be perceived as “automata” and “void of reason” (Discourse on the Method). As he explains, “were there such machines exactly resembling organs and outward form an ape or any other irrational animal, we could have no means of knowing that they were in any respect of a different nature from these animals” (Discourse on the Method). Contemporary animal studies scholars have moved past this outdated approach, instead accepting that animals exhibit cognition, sentience, emotion, and a myriad of demonstrations of intelligence.
The Department of English Language and Literature at Bilkent University (Ankara, Turkey) invites submissions for 'Acts of Literary Creation,' an undergraduate conference to be held Friday, April 19 April, 2024. Submissions for online and in-person presentations are welcome.
From storytelling and architectural design to moviemaking and economic production, the act of creating is intimately tied to our senses of self and community. What is creativity? What constitutes a creation? What constitutes a creature? What are the political implications of the act of creation? How might an attention to creativity impact our understandings of the history of literary thought?

Call for Book Chapters on Discourse, Meaning, and Understanding
Discourse is a term that yields several meanings to academics in the human and social sciences. It is often used to describe a formal and/or informal way of text and talk, which seeks to empower some social groups and subordinate others in the social world. This definition might sound hasty at first sight in as much as discourse per se came to signify multiple forms of knowledge, systems of thought, and perhaps most important of all, the beliefs and attitudes people hold about life, death, (co)existence and the like.
