Early Modern Literary Inventories - ACLA Panel, Utrecht 2017
This is a call for The American Comparative Literature Association's 2017 Annual Meeting, which will take place at Utrecht University in Utrecht, the Netherlands July 6-9, 2017. It means to investigate the entangled relationship of modern and contemporary poetry and ecology. Referencing Rey Chow’s notion of entanglement, i.e., a “condition of overlapping recurrences,” the panel seeks to analyze the points of recursive coincidence that ensue between cultural manifestations, poetic production, and environmental thinking. Entanglement points to associations of spatial proximity, of overlaying, but also of resistance and tension between phenomena.
Call for papers for the Chaucer MetaPage session at the International Medieval Congress, Kalamazoo, in May 2017
Beyond the Portraits: Teaching Chaucer's Tales with Visuals.
For this session, we seek papers that explore the possibilities of using visual materials to teach the Canterbury Tales, going beyond the Ellesmere portraits and similar highly familiar resources. These resources could be online or off (e.g. photos, underexplored book illustrations, ephemera). The session will emphasize the pedagogical value of these materials.

Call for Papers Great Writing International Creative Writing Conference (UK)
Sat. July 1 – Sun. July 2 2017
Imperial College, London
Proposals and participants are invited for the exciting 2oth Anniversary Great Writing International Creative Writing Conference!
Proposals for presentation of critical work or for creative presentations (e.g. readings) are both very welcome. Presentations already from from all over the world!
Mantis is interested in publishing translations that will expose our readers to compelling and unfamiliar poems. All languages will be considered--we've featured work from Tamil, Italian, Danish, and Farsi--and all translations appear side-by-side with the original.
Please submit your translations (with the original) via Submittable as a single file. We'd also appreciate a brief note introducing the poet you're translating. This can appear in your cover letter or within your submission itself. This should help us contextualize the poet in question and would--we imagine--become the basis for the short introductions that we run with our translated poems.
