Dossier: 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.
Seeking abstracts for consideration on a panel at the Northeast Modern Language Association March 21-24 in Washington, D.C. Please submit abstracts and contact information by Sept. 30 using the following link: http://www.cfplist.com//nemla/Home/S/17510
This panel welcomes papers on a wide variety of religious and spiritual topics in connection to literature. Given the special conference theme of "Acting, Roles, Stages," papers that attempt to engage with this theme in relation to religious topics are particularly welcome.
The conference will take place at Western Washington University, in Bellingham, WA.
Please submit a 350-word proposal by going to the PAMLA website: http://pamla.org/2018/topic-areas

A Companion to the Prose Poem (Mary Ann Caws and Michel Delville, eds.)
We welcome proposals for a collection of essays on the prose poem we are editing.
Why, I can smile, and murder whiles I smile,
And cry 'Content' to that which grieves my heart,
And wet my cheeks with artificial tears,
And frame my face to all occasions.
I'll drown more sailors than the mermaid shall;
I'll slay more gazers than the basilisk;
I'll play the orator as well as Nestor,
Deceive more slily than Ulysses could,
And, like a Sinon, take another Troy.
I can add colours to the chameleon,
Before social welfare could exist, it needed to be imagined.
The epoch when the full establishment of the concept of the welfare state in the U.K. and other European countries occurred, 1890-1948, indeed coincides with the phenomenon of European Modernism, conceived here not just as an aesthetic, but as a socio-political phenomenon of visionary reform. The dazzling achievements of the 1890s-1940s interms of modernist arts have been minutely charted over the past decades, and the modernist context superbly brought to life. While much has been made of the interactions between Modernism / suffrage or Modernism / war, however, another epoch-making social revolution was underway, whose correlation with the arts remains more tenuous.
