For its 25th annual meeting, the British Women Writers Conference invites papers and panel proposals considering the theme of “Generations.” As we look back on a quarter-century of feminist scholarship and practice within British Studies, we want to celebrate those who have defined the British Women Writers Association’s past and nurture those who will shape its future. Of course, even within literary traditions or scholarly networks, generational transitions are rarely ever easy or smooth. Such transitions may be accompanied by paradigm shifts, struggles to be heard, or difficulty letting go. We therefore welcome investigations into the complexities of generational exchange and transition in women’s writing.
CFP: Russia in American Literature
13 July 2017
The British Library, London
2017 will mark the anniversary of the Russian Revolution, one of the defining events of the past century. The conference ‘Russia in American Literature’ aims to explore the literary relationship between Russia and the United States during the long twentieth century. From the influence of Soviet literary criticism on the American writers associated with the Left during the 1930s, to the spy fictions of the Cold War, we aim to examine how the politics and culture of Russia and the Soviet Union have been represented and reimagined in American literary texts.

The European Journal of Educational Sciences (EJES) is a quarterly published journal of the educational sciences (published at the end of March, June, September, and December every year). It was established because of the demand of researchers, and it exists for the benefit of researchers.
EJES welcomes submissions focused on theories, methods, and applications in the field of educational sciences.
Reform—a term, activity, or idea dedicated to dissent from existing conditions—is also, history demonstrates, slippery in its ambivalence. As the setting for both Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle and Hull House’s historical founding, Chicago has long been associated with activism and reform in the Progressive Era. Yet violent conflicts like the Haymarket Affair and Chicago Race Riots of 1919 made manifest continuing racial and class-based divisions and attested to the limits of so-called progressive social reform in this time/place.

About the conference
‘Somewhat like Ariel / Somewhat like Puck / Somewhat like a gutter boy / Who loves to play in muck’ – Richard Bruce Nugent
Queer Modernism(s) is an interdisciplinary conference that aims to explore the place of queer identity in modernist art, literature and culture. How do modernist artists frame queerness within their work? How did writers reveal and conceal their sexuality? And, in ‘making it new’, how did modernism develop new modes of exploring gender and sexuality?
