deadline for submissions: 
Monday, August 20, 2018

2019 marks the 300th anniversary of the publication of Love in Excess, the still-popular work of fiction that launched the print career of one of the most important authors of the entire eighteenth century. The Early Atlantic Reading Group at Purdue University therefore calls for papers and non-fatal enquiries in celebration of all aspects of Eliza Haywood’s work, career, and world (such expansive topics might include bibliography, women’s book history, theatricals, the Hillarians, or even Haywood and Crusoe—which also marks its 300th birthday in 2019). Please send abstracts of approximately 250 words to Manushag N. Powell (mnpowell@purdue.edu) on or before August 20, 2018.

Historians have long recognized the central relationship between property ownership and political participation in Britain. As many have acknowledged, throughout the nineteenth century, men’s ability to vote was based on fulfilling a property qualification; even women’s enfranchisement in 1918 still carried property requirements.

CFP: Women in Rock / Women in Romanticism

Of the 605 proposals received by Bloomsbury for their 2015 33 1/3 Series call for papers, only 18% of contributors and 11% of artists covered were women, even though the female series editor was aggressively soliciting contributions by and about women. Rock and Romanticism: Women in Rock / Women in Romanticism seeks to address a visible shortcoming in scholarship about women in both popular music and in English Romanticism by bringing the two together in this collection.

Submissions are being sought for a collection of essays tentatively titled All Things Arabia: Arabian Identity and Material Culture. The goal of this collection is twofold. First, we would like to challenge existing scholarship by Edward Said, Homi Bhabha, or Franz Fanon and, instead of looking at the other spaces of the Near Orient as the “great complementary opposite” of the West, to suggest new, more complex, and unbiased ways of understanding the cultural identity of the Arabian Peninsula through the things that stand for this place.

“Early Modern English Literature”

Early modern English authors (c. 1453-1789) wrote in a period of unprecedented national and international political, cultural, social, religious, and scientific changes. Literature in English across a range of traditional and alternative genres reflected, resisted, and redefined these developments. We invite papers that identify and analyse the many forms of evidence of the literary engagement with transformative issues, events, and axes within and outside of the British Isles.

Editors of the number: Elizabeth Sauer (Brock University, Canadá) and Luiz Fernando Ferreira Sá (UFMG)

Submission deadline: April 30th 2018.

Conference English Literature in the World: From Manuscript to Digital (May 7-10, Lisbon, Portugal)

English Literature has been able to reinvent itself along new pathways, from the age of the manuscript to the digital era. In the last decades, the digital technology has changed the paradigms involving both the reading strategies and the analysis of literary texts: among others, the relation between writer and reader; the publication in digital platforms; “distant reading”; the exploration of the image; the abundance of information; the access to the original texts. This enormous change has originated an interdisciplinary reevaluation of many of the previous paths, as well as the launching of new focuses of reflection.

Eighteenth-Century War Representation

National University of Singapore, 21-22 April 2018

Scholars have given less attention to war representation of the eighteenth-century than to that of other periods. This is probably a result of the absence of any important texts about war, and of widespread interest in the twentieth century.

However, many important ways of representing and understanding war emerged in the eighteenth century. There was, for instance, a new sense of the soldier's or civilian's experience of war, and of the infiltration of war into ordinary life.
