Dante's Heart: Call for Submissions
Tricksters -- 2010

Entries Due: May 1, 2010

What We're Looking For

Tricksters live in a world of ambiguity and chaos. They know no boundaries-- with nowhere they can't go and nothing they can't do, they are oftentimes the world's ultimate creators and destroyers. At Dante's Heart, we are interested in the endless possibilities opened up for stories, art, drama, letters, mixed
media, ... when a trickster takes center stage. We invite you to explore the unruliness of the trickster and so we call for submissions featuring trickster works.

Winning entries will be published in an upcoming (summer) issue of Dante's Heart.

Call for Proposals by April 15, 2010, Permanent Section on Bibliography and Textual Studies: Mapping the Communications Circuit

updated: 
Monday, March 8, 2010 - 12:56pm
Midwest Modern Language Association

The MMLA's permanent section on bibliography and textual studies seeks proposals for papers discussing points of contact between the "history of the book" and literary studies. This year's theme, "Mapping the Communications Circuit," builds off Robert Darnton's model for the history of the book as a circuit of communications, including texts but also authorship, readership, printing/publishing and bookselling/libraries. This theme invites scholars to reexamine the literary roots of book studies and to map out new directions for the field. Papers may focus on any historical period or geographic region, but should be primarily preoccupied with the intersection of book studies and literary studies.
