This year's 87th annual conference of the South Atlantic Modern Language Association (SAMLA) brings together scholars in literatures, languages, and rhetorics from all over the world. The theme this year is "In Concert: Literature and the Other Arts."
This panel will discuss representations of vignettes from Ovid's Metamorphoses, focusing on illustrated editions, graphic literary representations, and other visuals. Ovid's epic naturally lent itself to visual representation, both affected by prior artwork and affecting subsequent art depicting Roman mythology. An ethically problematic poem, the Metamorphoses was received with anxiety, particularly for the dangerous lessons it could impart to vulnerable audiences, which resulted in adaptations that transformed image and text to guide readers' interpretations.
This Rough Magic (www.thisroughmagic.org) is a journal dedicated to the art of teaching Medieval and Renaissance Literature.
We are seeking academic, teachable articles that focus on, but are not limited to, the following categories:
•Philosophy and Rhetoric

Renascence, a peer-reviewed critical and scholarly journal, is published by Marquette University as an expression of its Jesuit mission of the search for truth and the exaltation of human dignity. The journal's essays explore how literature is informed by and contributes to our understanding of fundamental questions concerning moral philosophy, theology, and spirituality. Though Renascence is an English language journal and has an emphasis on literature in English, studies on works and authors from a diversity of times, countries, and cultures are welcome. Essays should make a well-defined, original scholarly argument, run 4,000-7,000 words, and document sources using MLA style.
