Animals and War, A Collection of Essays: Call for Papers
I am editing a collection of essays from any discipline and period treating the topic of animals and warfare. Dolphins in the U.S. Navy, the dogs in Vietnam, Iraq, and elsewhere, elephants, pigeons, horses, mules, and many more—millions of nonhuman animals have been subjected to and participants in human warfare. What can we learn from this often invisible history?
Proposed panel for the Modernist Studies Association Conference, in Victoria, B.C., Canada, November 11-14, 1910
This panel will examine the ways that writers and patrons negotiated the often uneasy relationship of literary patronage. Critics have often focused on the detrimental effects of patronage on the modern artist—including insularity and a galling condition of dependency. Panelists are invited to complicate critical interpretations that cast patronage as simply a fetter to free expression or aesthetic innovation. Papers exploring the racial, sexual, and gender dynamics of modern literary patronage are particularly welcome.
Submissions for Anthology: She's Pregnant, Not Crazy: A Man's Guide to Surviving Pregnancy
Submissions needed for anthology of essays, recollections, or warnings by men for other men (250 - 750 words) that tackle the journey of pregnancy from humorous, quirky, male perspectives.
A generous dose of wit is a must for what will be a groundbreaking book for fathers to be. Funny stories related to unexpected complications with conception or well meaning advice to get your boys to meet the egg (e.g. keeping her legs up after the deed), to tales of surviving the first trimester including her morning sickness, cravings, and hormonal changes are all fair game.

"Charles Chesnutt: The Past and Future."
How is the lyric social? How do poets, poetic speakers, and poetry readers use or presume an intersubjective situation? Among literary genres of the twentieth century, poetry is often taken to be the least socially inflected, a description which slights the varying ways in which verse can engage common or mutual experience. This panel would resist such neglect, and bring together "new lyric studies" and twentieth-century aesthetics, by questioning a stark division of inner and outer in accounts of poetic subjectivity. We seek papers about modernist and contemporary verse that challenge the dichotomy of self and other, as well as the related dualisms of lyric and society, person and culture, poetry and history, and aesthetics and politics.
