The peer-reviewed Community Literacy Journal seeks book and/or multimedia
reviews for Spring 2007 issue. We are soliciting reviews of books and/or
multimedia, along with book/multimedia suggestions for review, that
address any social, cultural, rhetorical, or institutional aspects of
community literacy.

We invite you to submit reviews that you feel should be included in our
budding conversation about literacy work that exists outside mainstream
educational and work institutions. It can be found in institutionalized
programs devoted to adult education or lifelong learning or work with
marginalized populations, but it can also be found in more informal, ad
hoc projects.

The Medieval Research Consortium at UC Davis is pleased to announce two
sessions for the 42nd International Congress on Medieval Studies at Western
Michigan University, Kalamazoo, MI, May 10-13, 2007.

1. "Excess and Outlandishness in Late Medieval Texts" will address how
texts challenge rhetorical norms of decorum and moderation, and exceed
their boundaries--especially the boundaries from which texts deliver their
messages to a late medieval audience.

2. "Hybridized Bodies and Spaces in Medieval Literature" will examine texts
that present overlapping and competing ideological claims--such as gender
and/or nation--on medieval bodies, cities, architecture and landscapes.
