CALL FOR PAPERS
(please forward)

2006 is the centenary of the birth of John Betjeman, Poet Laureate from
1972-84. To celebrate this event and to highlight the extensive holdings of
Betjeman's correspondence and manuscripts at the University of Victoria
(Canada), two panels on June 29th are dedicated to Betjeman and his milieu
in the "ON MIRACLE GROUND XIV" conference of the International Lawrence
Durrell Society (25-29 June 2006).

Papers that deal with any aspect of Betjeman's career or his engagement with
his contemporaries are welcome, though those with an archival or comparative
approach are particularly appropriate to the conference's general theme.

Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association Conference 2006

University of California, Riverside
Riverside, California

Submission Deadline: March 15, 2006

Paper proposals are requested for a panel of the PAMLA conference
meeting on the following topic:

Science Fiction in Literature, Film and Media

Science fiction seems slowly to be making its way out of its marginal
"genre fiction" status and into the realm of consideration as serious
literature. We seek papers that regard science fiction works as
potential subjects of rigorous academic inquiry.

CFP: Aesthetics and Victorian/Edwardian Detective Fiction (4/23/06; collection)

updated: 
Saturday, March 4, 2006 - 8:03pm
Paul Fox

In recent years there has been a growing critical
interest in the literary detective, and a number of
recent studies have examined the late nineteenth- and
early twentieth-century sleuth from a variety of
theoretical perspectives: Foucauldian, feminist,
post-colonial and post-structuralist. Cultural
historians examine the period and the detective in
terms of empire, gender, social authority and
scientific developments in criminology. Little is said
of the relationship between late Victorian and
Edwardian detective fiction in terms of style, the art
of detection and the question of contemporary
aesthetic theory.
