Periodicals, Protest, and the South: Periodicals--especially those addressed to regional or other focused communities--have long been credited as potent political forces for organizing social protest movements and collectives. From radical New Orleans abolitionist papers to contemporary university publications, southern periodicals have helped to articulate and circulate protests against racism, economic exploitation, institutionalized inequality, and many other social ills.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 31, 2020

William Shakespeare was Emily Dickinson’s favorite writer and her letters abound with references to him and his works. Dickinson’s allusions to Shakespeare’s writings evidence his pervasive presence in her life but also signal his ubiquitous place in her culture.

In collaboration with the Emily Dickinson Museum, the 2020 EDIS Annual Meeting will be held July 31 to August 1 in Amherst. This year’s focus is Dickinson’s great love of Shakespeare and this theme will shape the usual features of our Annual Meetings such as reading groups, tours of the Dickinson Museum, performances, readings, seminar-style discussions, and talks.

Independent Libraries as the 'Great Good Place'

updated: 
Wednesday, November 20, 2019 - 2:45pm
Independent Libraries Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, February 22, 2020

In the heart of their communities and repositories of some of the most independent cultural collections in the UK, independent libraries are social, educational, working spaces which deliver numerous personal benefits to those who use them. This year’s theme is inspired by Ray Oldenburg’s The Great Good Place (1989), in which Oldenberg discusses the desirable ‘third place’: public places where anyone can gather and interact. Unlike the first place (home) and the second place (work), third spaces offer inexpensive access to discussion, pleasure, and community, leading to social cohesion, civic engagement, and the wellbeing that comes from a sense of place. Third spaces can be cafes, main streets, coffeehouses, beer gardens…

'Making connections: women’s writing 1918-1939' is a one-day conference which will be held at the University of Bedfordshire (Bedford campus) on 6th June 2020. 

The interwar period was a time of experimentation in form, but also a time when networks enabled new writers to form connections with each other and with the publishing community.  This conference will focus on those networks, both formal and informal, between writers and writers, and with publishers, film makers, and literary, political and artistic movements. 

Abstracts are invited for papers on women writers from the UK, from Europe and across the world who were writing and publishing between 1918 and 1939.

“Over the Horizon: Comparative Perspectives on Literature” International Conference

updated: 
Monday, September 23, 2019 - 1:56pm
London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, October 31, 2019

As Sarah Lawall stated in her essay, the world-literature perspective is not one, but multiple. By looking at literature comparatively, we can enrich our understanding of the historical and cultural context of the literary works, to look over the horizon of our own tradition and to see how cultures interact.The conference will consider the theory and the practice of comparative literature and will discuss the transformations and travels of literary genres and texts across time and space. It will explore the connections of literature with history, philosophy, politics, and literary theory, and study the intersections of literature with other cultural forms such as film, visual arts, music and media.Topics may include, but are not limited to:

International Conference on Oral History

updated: 
Monday, September 23, 2019 - 1:54pm
London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, October 15, 2019

For decades, oral history was considered less than scholarly, leading to its exclusion from several history books; thus valuable first-hand experiences and information that could alter historical truth were neglected and ultimately lost to oblivion. Our conference wishes to challenge the pervading view that oral testimony can lead to false representation of historical events and underline the significant support it can provide to historical research, especially in lieu of written documentation.

Pulpit, Playhouse and Page: Theatrical and Non-Theatrical Exchange in early modern England

updated: 
Monday, September 23, 2019 - 1:25pm
University of Sheffield
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 1, 2019

This two-day conference will explore connections between theatrical and non-theatrical texts in early modern England. Theatrical culture functioned in vibrant relation to both non-theatrical performances (such as sermons and entertainments) and non-dramatic poetry and prose. However, moments of exchange between different genres have too often been obscured by disciplinary silos.

By bringing together scholars with a wide variety of interests the conference will open up new research questions which address the creative exchanges between plays and a wide range of non-theatrical texts and performances.

Topics for consideration might include:

Kalamazoo ICMS 2020: Medieval Representations of Scholarly Labor

updated: 
Monday, August 5, 2019 - 12:06pm
Program in Medieval Studies at Yale University
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, September 10, 2019

From the Codex Amiatinus’s depiction of Ezra writing in a book to that of Hildegard of Bingen receiving and dictating her supernatural visions in the frontispiece to the Scivias, interest in representing the labors of scholars spanned the length of the Middle Ages. Not only do depictions of scholarly labor such as these, whether visual or textual, shed light onto the material culture and historical practices of medieval scholarship, but they also reveal the ways in which medieval artists and writers sought to convey ideas about the work that they themselves performed and the functions they served in society.
