and disrupting a multitude of borders, from the division between an
individual’s body and mind, to the boundaries of empires and nation-states.
The 2008 RMMLA panel on "Literature & Fashion" is seeking papers that

The Society for the Study of Mixed Race invites paper submissions on all
aspects of eugenics in American history and culture for a panel to take
place at the American Literature Association Annual Conference (details
below). Widely influential in early 20th century America, eugenic thought

intelligence theories, etc. Witnessing Nazi atrocities ostensibly stemmed
the eugenic tide in the U.S., but recent scholarship suggests eugenics,
in the forms of discriminatory birth control practices and technologies
introduced by the science of human genetics (cloning, screening,
engineering), remains a powerful current in contemporary American

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

We are currently soliciting essay proposals for an edited collection on
the fiction of M. R. James, tentatively titled “Medievalists Read the
Antiquary: Essays on the Fiction of M. R. James.” As the title reflects,
we are interested in proposals which engage the relationship between
James’s academic medieval studies and his ghost stories, and therefore we

"Get a Move On!": Nineteenth Century Migration and Mobility

A Graduate English Conference sponsored by the University of South
Carolina

Keynote Speaker: Ian Duncan, University of California, Berkeley

Dates: March 7-8, 2008

Abstract Deadline: January 25, 2008

Immigrants and expatriates, sailors and soldiers, travelers and
wanderers, men and women: people in the nineteenth century were moving.
Novels and new inventions such as railroads, steamships, and street cars
provided vehicles of transport for individuals and their imaginations,
while the transnational movements of ideas and populations gave rise to a
newly globalized Anglo-American literature.
