John.V.Nance_at_virgo.sas.upenn.edu,

This is a call for submissions that you wish to be considered for
publication in The St. John's University (Queens, NY) bi-annual literary
journal, The Humanities Review. The journal has published several notable
academics in their respective fields over the last few years such as:
Gayatri Spivak, Amy King and Peter McLaren.

The working themes of this edition are Modern Social Custom Flourishes,
Exemplary Figures, Corruption of Dialect and Post-9/11 Noir. However, we
will not discriminate if your paper fails to converse with these ideas.
Whatever you have available will certainly suffice.

CFP: [Romantic] Obliterature: The Art of Creative Destruction GEO Conference

Tamara Sack

The Graduate English Organization of Truman State University is proud to
announce the call for papers for their annual conference April 10-11,
2009!

Our speaker this year will be author extraordinaire Mary Ruefle, who has
published several books of poetry and prose as well as a comic book.
Inspired by her unique work A Little White Shadow, our conference is
entitled “Obliterature: The Art of Creative Destruction.” We are
looking for presentations, creative and scholarly, that deal with the
breaking down of culture and art, the imaginative implosions within the
written word, or simply those ideas that are not just out of the box but
crush it.

At the beginning of the 19th century, when it was common for European
countries to assert hospitableness as a defining national characteristic,
their proclamations were often accompanied by a violent countervailing
impulse. This panel will trace the dynamic of welcome and rejection over
the course of the century and across a series of thresholds (personal,
domestic, and international). Exploring the nexus where possession,
self-possession, and obligation confront each other, we will ask how and to
what extent the discourse of hospitality speaks to us with renewed force in
the twenty-first century.

CFP: Essays for Edited Collection
Tentative Title: British Sporting Culture: The Literature and Culture of
Sport in the Long Eighteenth Century
 
Sport is emerging as one of the most compelling and playful areas of
academic inquiry. In the past few decades, important studies of sport
have been written from a mostly historical or sociological perspective.
But sport has not been established as an important sub-discipline in
literary and cultural studies, particularly in the long eighteenth
century. For centuries, sports have been organized, and competition has
been viewed as both ritual and recreation. But several important aspects
