Limina is an online, refereed, academic journal of historical and cultural studies based in the Discipline of History at The University of Western Australia.

We are especially committed to publishing the work of postgraduate students and early career researchers, realising the importance of developing an early publication record, as well as the difficulties in doing so.

Recognising the fact that many articles get bogged down in the review process, at Limina we guarantee initial feedback on articles and the review process within 4 – 6 weeks, (ensuring your work is not buried somewhere for months on end).

Gender and the Dynamics of Marriage in Medieval English Literature

Debbie Killingsworth / University of Oregon

Call for papers, International Congress on Medieval Studies, Kalamazoo, MI, 5/12 – 5/11.
Panel Title: "Gender and the Dynamics of Marriage in Medieval English Literature"

Representations of marriage pervade Medieval Literature and often these literary representations differ from the religious and/or secular expectations of this sort of relationship. Papers for the proposed session could explore:
• the gendered power dynamics within marriage
• the implications of marriage within the chivalric courtly tradition
• the insinuations regarding the reality of social attitudes regarding women
• the use of marriage as a metaphor to investigate the power dynamics within the larger societal institutions.

CFP: Hemingway's Short Fiction, Louisville Conference 2011

updated: 
Monday, August 2, 2010 - 12:04am
Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture Since 1900

While Hemingway's fiction remains a focus for many critics, not every piece of fiction Hemingway wrote engenders ample criticism. Susan Beegel, in Hemingway's Neglected Short Fiction: New Perspectives, outlines a few ways in which certain short works of Hemingway continue to be the subject of criticism ranging from sentence-length dismissals scattered throughout book length studies to full-length essays lacking meaningful contributions to the work's scholarly cache. Beegel's explanation of neglected short fiction including works featured in essays which have lacked critical stature is the starting point for this panel proposal.

The Global and the Intimate - SCMS panel proposal, March 2011, New Orleans

SCMS

With a focus on the transnational marginalized subject, this panel seeks to discuss various forms of performances where the subject emerges in its global entanglement. How do we grasp the idea of social, economic and political facets of global relations through the intimate experience of individual bodies-- particularly those of women and labor? How do we grasp "the intimate" (a set of relations, kinship, sexuality, corporeality, internal thought, speech, emotions, affect) through systems connected to global forces and like trade, profit; law, citizenship, and migration; cultural exchange, social movement, tourism?
