BRITISH SOCIETY FOR EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY STUDIES
39th ANNUAL CONFERENCE
Tuesday 5 January-Thursday 7 January 2010
ST. HUGH'S COLLEGE, OXFORD, U.K.
CFP Deadline: Friday 25 September 2009
For its 39th annual conference, to be held in Oxford from 6-8 January 2010, the British Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies invites proposals in either English or French for papers and sessions dealing with any aspect of the long eighteenth century, not only in Britain, but also throughout Europe and the wider world. Proposals are invited for individual papers, for fully comprised panels of three papers, and for roundtable sessions of five speakers.
The nature of scholarship implies process rather than closure. The October special issue on "Closing the Gap and Rectification" aims exactly to highlight the necessity both of preceding achievement as a basis for later development and addition and the inevitability of revision and rectification of foregoing mistakes and dated arguments. Only by means of closing the gap and revising, can a next generation of new ideas announce themselves. The effort at closing the gap or rectification is less an attempt at finding faults with views of early scholars or an impassioned attack or even antics aimed at courting attention.
1st call for papers: The 16th Annual Postgraduate Symposium of the School of English, Media and Performing Arts will be held at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Thursday 15 October and Friday 16 October 2009.
Submissions of proposals are now open.
Please submit proposals of 250-300 words by 17 July 2009 to EMPASymposium@gmail.com

In Derrida's Wake
9 October 2009
La Trobe University
8 October 2009 marks the fifth anniversary of the death of French deconstructionist Jacques Derrida. Given Derrida's concern with dates and contexts, but also with notions of trying to mourn for lost friends and the responsibilities of the living towards the dead and their legacies, it seems a more than appropriate time--perhaps a day late, because we hesitate, trying to postpone the inevitable--to bring together some friends and scholars of Derrida, not to mourn a man so concerned with the impossibility of mourning, but to begin to celebrate the enduring influence of deconstruction, to survey the state of play across the disciplines, in Derrida's wake.

The Cartographical Necessity of Exile
Derek Walcott identified a cartographical necessity of exile in his 1984 collection of poetry, Midsummer, when he wrote:
So, however far you have travelled, your
steps make more holes and the mesh is multiplied –
… exiles must make their own maps
