The Arkansas Literary Review is a new online journal that seeks to provide an active voice for graduate students who wish to explore the relationship between literature and the humanities: philosophy, history, language, etc. It is our intention to create a growing community of graduate voices from which great dialogues and ideas can emerge. We look forward to the many great discussions that will follow. Submission guidelines can be found in the following .pdf file.

CFP for MAM Costume in Medieval Literature Kzoo 2010
After many years of organizing panels for Kalamazoo, Laura Hodges has passed the baton to me. I will be organizing a session, sponsored by the Medieval Association of the Midwest, on "Costume in Medieval Literature" for the Medieval Institute Congress in Kalamazoo in 2010. Any examination of medieval literary costume is welcome, including, but not limited to, fabrics used, color, dyestuffs, ornamentation, etc. As with Laura's previous sessions, papers dealing with costume in Chaucer's works are welcome, although this session, as with the past two, will be open to any medieval literatures in English or other languages.
