Early Native American Literature
39th convention of the Northeast Modern Language Association (NEMLA)
Dates: April 10-13, 2008
Buffalo, NY

In his recent book, The People and the Word, Robert Warrior speaks of
a "strengthening of the historical arc of Native writing" to consider how
Native American literatures of the past might be of use to us today. This
panel invites papers that focus on pre-twentieth century Native writers
(or writers on the cusp of the 20th century)examining, among other things,
how these authors negotiated their private ambitions and needs alongside
traditional concerns and the demands of print discourse.

Orphic Cinema

39th Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)

April 10-13, 2008

Buffalo, New York

Cinematic approaches to spontaneous individual creativity. How does cinema
inflect or challenge the link between artist and object? How have films
addressed the constitution of creative acts? How have they balanced the
diverse factors that make claims on the essence of creation in the western
tradition, including personal expression, aesthetics, medial specificity,
and ideology? Essays on Cocteau's Orphic Trilogy are especially encouraged,
but any essay on creation in cinema is welcome. 250-500 word abstracts by
9/15/07 as Word or .rtf attachments to sean.desilets_at_gmail.com.

CFP: [Professional] Essays on Digital Media for Upcoming Collection

Heather Urbanski

For the upcoming essay collection "Writing (and) the Digital Generation"
(under contract with McFarland), I am soliciting contributions that analyze
the many facets of participatory digital entertainment. The key assumption
of this project is that, contrary to the claim that “no one reads anymore,”
a vast “Digital Generation” actually engages in more rhetorical activity
than perhaps any before. This collection seeks essays that describe and
document these participatory activities and how they are changing how we
see writing, perhaps permanently.

CFP: [Medieval] The Uncanonized Archbishop Wulfstan and His Canon Law Collection (Kalamazoo 08)

John Peruggia

This is a call for papers for a Saint Louis University-sponsored session
on Archbishop Wulfstan and his Canon Law Collection which will take place
at the International Congress of Medieval Studies at the University of
Western Michigan in Kalamazoo, May 8-11, 2008.

Although best known for his Sermo Lupi ad Anglos, Archbishop Wulfstan
(Wulfstan II) was also Canon Law collector, political theorist, and law
writer. This session seeks to explore the Canon Law Collection of
Wulfstan in terms of its sources, application, and context in late 8th-
century and early 9th-century England. Of specific interest is the
relationship between Wulfstan’s collections and other, non Canon-Law
related texts.
