CALL FOR PAPERS
ROBERT BROWNING AMONG THE VICTORIANS – AND AFTER
Browning Bicentenary issue of Victorian Poetry
Summer 2012

Robert Browning is a quintessentially Victorian poet, deeply rooted in the period's culture, and conscious of its politics and intellectual and religious debates. At the same time, he is a significant – though not always duly acknowledged – influence on later authors. He has also lent himself well to twentieth-century critical theory, having been claimed by approaches as wide-ranging as Deconstruction, New Historicism and feminism. How do we assess him 200 years after his birth, in an age when a variety of critical theories coexists with a strong interest in broader issues of Victorian culture?

Northeast Writing Center Association

The NEWCA Steering Committee invites proposals for this year's NEWCA conference, held at Boston University on April 10-11, 2010. Proposals are due by December 31.

The conference theme, Images, explores the rhetoric of the visual world and provides us with intriguing metaphors, lenses and frameworks to explore writing center lore and research.

We encourage investigation of how writing centers' images are created: what practices need to be enlarged or cropped; what stories are told and left untold; and what needs to be re-imaged, re-imagined and re-focused.
