Making Books, Shaping Readers

The First International Making Books, Shaping Readers Conference
University College, Cork, April 18th - 20th 2007
http://www.ucc.ie/en/mbsr

Theme: "Making an Audience"

This conference encourages a broad interpretation of the notion of an
audience in keeping with the etymology of the word. (The term audience,
which derives from the Latin audenita, "a hearing, listening", from awis,
"to perceive physically, to grasp", and from the nineteenth century
transformation of the sense of the word to "readers of a book", reflects the
way in which technologies of the word have changed throughout history, from
oral, to manuscript, to print).

The Ninth International F. Scott Fitzgerald Conference will

House, near Russell Square in Bloomsbury, will be the

We would, however, particularly welcome such subjects as
Fitzgerald’s reputation in England, the influence of British

Victorian novelists, and British writers of the 1920s whom
Fitzgerald admired.

One-paragraph proposals should be sent to Kirk Curnutt, via

CFP for Panel on Doris Lessing and Canon Formation for the Second
International Doris Lessing Conference, Leeds Metropolitan University,
U.K, to be held July 6-8, 2007.

Proposed Panel: "Putting the 'Woman of Letters' in Her Place: Canon
Formation and the Lessing Canon"

In the past 30 years, the canon of "great literature" has expanded,
shifted, and changed. No longer primarily a list of privileged, white,
male authors, the canon as we know it in the 21st century includes
writers who represent a range of identity categories. Spaces have been
carved out for women, gay, lesbian, working-class, postcolonial, and
multicultural writers.

connotations of flow and fusion, of formation, dissolution and
reformulation, FLUX reflects both the interdisciplinary spirit of this
year's conference and the current status of AHCCA within The
University of Melbourne.

The first Optika symposium, which took place in 2005, brought together
people from a variety of artistic, intellectual, and cultural
backgrounds and resulted in a wonderfully stimulating 2 day
conversation about the possibilities of visual narration. It also
resulted in a book on the subject soon to be published by the
University of Puerto Rico Press. When the symposium ended, everyone was
asking when Optika 2 would take place. So we are happy to announce the
second edition of Optika, and invite you to submit your proposals:
