"Writing Our Hope" is a bi-annual literary journal of creative nonfiction and poetry that publishes student work on themes of tolerance and equality. Submitted works should have a hopeful tone, focusing on solutions and possibilities in the present and future, rather than only a description or cataloguing of injustices in the past or present. In its first two years, "Writing Our Hope" has published the work of high school students, but it is now expanding to include works by college undergraduates, ages 17-24, and their professors.

Conference Theme:
Voices

"And in my voice most welcome shall you be." As You Like It 2:4.87

San Antonio. Images of the River Walk merge with the memories of its most famous location, the Alamo. Remember it, the voices from the past call out, and we do.

Those voices on opposing sides of its walls, representing Santa Anna and Sam Houston, spoke for two distinctly diverse cultures. And within those cultures were voices and texts that influenced the actions during that struggle – significant cultural markers of time, place, and being.

English Graduate Organization at University of Florida

Home/sickness: Desire, Decay, and the Seduction of Nostalgia

The University of Florida's 9th annual English Graduate Organization conference will explore nostalgia, focusing on the contradictory relations among desires for recovered pasts as well as deliberate attempts to manipulate the present through representations of the past. Of particular interest will be the extent to which both nostalgia and the desire for utopia are linked to historical trauma, as textual manifestations of an extratextual cause.

[DEADLINE] Redefining Masculinity in 20th-Century British Popular Fiction and Culture: Sep. 30, 2009.

updated: 
Sunday, September 27, 2009 - 7:16pm
NEMLA 2010

This panel will examine redefinitions of masculinity that challenge and intersect with global and national relations. Since conceptions of British masculinity had been shaped by a longstanding culture of empire and its agenda, the shift from an imperial to a decolonized Britain and the impact of the World Wars make the 20th-century a particularly ripe period for inquiries into concomitant reformulations of masculinity in popular culture and literature.Genres may include adventure tales, comics, war/espionage fiction, graphic novels, sci-fi, fantasy, and film. Please submit a 300 word abstract to mcartt@sage.edu.
