CFP: U.S. Studies Online (05/01/06; Journal issue)

U.S. Studies Online is now considering international submissions.

Originally founded to enable postgraduate students at British universities
to have their work published in a refereed environment at a time when the
opportunity for postgraduates to publish in American Studies paper journals
in Britain was becoming increasingly limited, the journal has now decided to
open the submissions process to postgraduate students from outside Britain,
as well.

We are now accepting proposals for the 2006 Rocky Mountain MLA convention in
Tucson, October 12-14 2006.

The Special Topic Session: "Early Modern Witchcraft on Trial" is looking for
submissions dealing with the problems of discerning, disputing and
displaying witchcraft and the occult in the fictional and non-fictional literature of
Renaissance Europe. We are looking in particular for cross-disciplinary
approaches that consider literary texts in the context of historical, political,
legal, anthropological and social analyses.
