The University of Glasgow's journal eSharp invites papers for the forthcoming themed issue. For Issue 16, Politics & Aesthetics , we will welcome articles which engage with issues of the politics of (re)presentation, as well as those investigating the (re)presentation of politics.

Picturing Women's Health 1750-1910
A One-Day Postgraduate Interdisciplinary Conference
University of Warwick, Saturday 22nd January, 2011
It has become increasingly difficult to conceive of our culture as following a dialectical progression from a shared past into a collective future, whether utopian or dystopian. We find ourselves instead at a point at which "The Future," a key concept in all branches of Western thought, creativity and experience, is replaced by myriad "Futures" of immediate relevance and consequence. How is our relationship to the future changing, and how do we actualise these potential futures?
The editors of antiTHESIS are seeking papers exploring the concept of futures to be published in Volume 21 of the journal. Graduate students and researchers from all disciplines within the arts, humanities and social sciences are invited to submit.
The 2011 Festival of Original Theatre conference sponsored by the Graduate Centre for the Study of Drama at the University of Toronto will focus its discussion and praxis entirely on the field of Post-Colonial theatre. The 2011 F.O.O.T. festival is designed to reflect the multi-cultural diversity of the city we inhabit, and to encourage an integrative approach between the theoretical and practical. The festival intends to promote and discuss contemporary trends in the emerging field of post-colonial performance studies as it relates to contentious issues ever-present in various cultural/multi-racial communities (such as race, marginality, migration, agency and hegemony).
Call for Book Reviewers
Limina is an online, refereed, academic journal of historical and cultural studies based in the Discipline of History at The University of Western Australia.
We are especially committed to publishing the work of postgraduate students and early career researchers, realising the importance of developing an early publication record, as well as the difficulties in doing so.
Recognising the fact that many articles get bogged down in the review process, at Limina we guarantee initial feedback on articles and the review process within 4 – 6 weeks, (ensuring your work is not buried somewhere for months on end).
While Hemingway's fiction remains a focus for many critics, not every piece of fiction Hemingway wrote engenders ample criticism. Susan Beegel, in Hemingway's Neglected Short Fiction: New Perspectives, outlines a few ways in which certain short works of Hemingway continue to be the subject of criticism ranging from sentence-length dismissals scattered throughout book length studies to full-length essays lacking meaningful contributions to the work's scholarly cache. Beegel's explanation of neglected short fiction including works featured in essays which have lacked critical stature is the starting point for this panel proposal.
