The ABP (http://www.ambrosebierce.org) is a hypermedia project and peer-reviewed e-journal hosted by Penn State University. To prepare for the next issue of the journal, we are now seeking literary briefs about the writing of Ambrose Bierce.

Literary briefs typically offer a critical perspective on a *single* Bierce story or work of nonfiction prose. Briefs should not exceed 2,000 words, but should include scholarly notes. Please submit completed briefs, via email, by 9/30/10.

The journal is indexed in the MLA International Bibliography.

"From 'Restoration' to 'Eighteenth–Century'" (proposal by 15/9/10; ASECS conference 17-20/3/11)

Tuesday, June 22, 2010 - 12:32am
Claude Willan

I'm soliciting proposals for this panel, which will run next March at the 2011 ASECS in Vancouver.

The period 1680 – 1730 saw transformations in the political, religious, legal and literary structures of Britain. These transformations have been variously characterized as the rise of the Habermasian public sphere, the Republic of Letters, the development of the two-party system, of professional authorship, elective monarchy, and as the advent of a system of mercantile credit foundational to that which we employ today.

I welcome papers that interrogate the gap between "Restoration" and "Eighteenth-Century" literature in any of a variety of ways, including, but not necessarily limited to:

Monday, June 21, 2010 - 11:50am
South Atlantic Modern Language Association, session sponsored by the Society for Critical Exchange

Jung's Red Book: Confronting the Unconscious through Word and Image
In 1913, at a moment of personal and professional crisis, Jung began
recording a series of visions and fantasies in what would become an
extended "confrontation with the unconscious." The Red Book, newly
published last year after decades kept under a shroud of family secrecy,
is rife with all the chaos and horror one might expect an honest
accounting of the unplumbed depths of the human psyche to contain. The
book has another striking feature as well, however: it is visually
