Call for Papers for École Normale Supérieure Paris International Conference, 2010
Conference Date: 20-21 February 2010
Locations: École Normale Supérieure and Centre Culturel Irlandais, Paris
This seminar will discuss the impact of globalization on anglophone cultures by focusing on the emergence of so called "global novels" and by charting the patterns of their dissemination and their inclusion as new cultural capital in literary studies worldwide. By situating such novels in the context of a series of irreversible changes currently investing the relation between literature and nationality, we aim at bringing new light on the cultural significance of novels written in English across the globe.
Call for Essays
Essays sought for the upcoming volume The Presence of Absence: Literary Missing Persons, which will examine texts in which an absent character (or characters) has a real influence upon plot or theme (Waiting for Godot, for example). Essays should be clear and jargon free, and aimed at upper-division undergraduates and above. Texts written in English will be given precedence, although European texts readily available in translation will also receive consideration. Abstracts due by 1 February (2010), full essays by June 2. Publisher anticipates book in hand by early 2011.

The next issue of Trickster will deal with language. In the attempt to break the boundaries of disciplines (an absolute necessity for both cross-cultural theory and practice) our latest editorial mission has been to create an open and collective space for the delivery and the reception of speech.
Language, we believe, is a site of self- revelation and the ownership of what we are used to labelling as someone's own language is hard to prove.
