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.

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:

CFP: Cityscapes: Town and Country in the Medieval Imagination (UK) (7/31/06; Leeds, 7/9/07-7/12/07)

Malte Urban

The effect of cityscapes on the creative imagination has in recent years
become one of the countless concerns of contemporary cultural criticism, but
surprisingly little attention has been paid to the medieval roots of the
perception of urban environments. Building upon the considerable recent work
on the city in the Middle Ages, this session aims to address this critical
vacuum by bringing together papers that discuss the relationship of town and
country in the medieval imagination. Can we sustain a belief in an ultimate
and insurmountable otherness of the medieval imagination or are the medieval
and postmodern views of cityscapes in fact two sides of the same coin? I

The poetry of John Gower has experienced a renaissance of critical interest
in recent years, and scholars are beginning to realise the potential of
subjecting his works to an array of innovative approaches. This session aims
to bring together a panel assessing Gower¹s situation within 21st-century
medieval studies, and it is hoped that we can define more clearly his
position in the contemporary academy and his relation to the London culture
in which he was working, especially the relationship between his poetry and
that of his contemporaries and successors.

Possible topics include:
