CFP: Shakespeare and Islam (journal issue)

Scholars have long associated Shakespeare with the wider world beyond early
modern England's shores, notably Europe of course and, in the wake of New
Historicism, the Americas. One of the most interesting recent developments
in early modern studies, however, has been the recognition that writers
looked towards the East as well as westwards - to the Islamic world, and the
Ottoman Empire in particular.

"Making Publics: Media, Markets, and Association in Early Modern
Europe, 1500-1800"

An Interdisciplinary Conference Sponsored by
the Early Modern Center at the University of California, Santa Barbara

March 9-10. 2007

What were early modern publics? How were they formed? What needs did
they serve for those who participated in them? And how did they
relate to the emergence of a cultural formation that we recognize as
distinctly early modern? These are among the questions we seek to
address in this conference.

Native American Literature Symposium, April 5-7, 2007

Roundtable on Teaching American Indian Poetry

This is one of two panels at the Native American Literature Symposium--the
premiere Native Literature gathering--sponsored by the ASAIL Committee on
Pedagogy and Teaching. This particular roundtable will feature individual
scholars giving mini-presentations on teaching Native American poems.
Presentations can range from topics of courses to the use of secondary
sources to innovative approaches. I am especially interested in proposals
that pair two poems by different poets and/or that offer an actual hands-on
"lesson" for use in the classroom.
