Poor Manuscripts...Rich Manuscripts: Early Middle English Manuscript Production (Leeds, 11-14 July 2011)

updated: 
Wednesday, August 25, 2010 - 9:54pm
Early Middle English Society

Many of the earliest Middle English texts from the twelfth and thirteenth centuries are found in relatively "shabby" manuscripts. We would like to take up the complex manuscript milieu that could often produce both "poor," or shabby, manuscripts, and "rich," or deluxe, manuscripts. We are broadly interested in papers that may consider regional differences; patronage; multilingual contents; diverse audiences; codicological concerns; etc. Methods of engagement with the topic might include, but are not limited to, comparing different "looking" early Middle English manuscripts that contain the same (i.e.

Crèvecoeur: American Paradox NEMLA April 2011

updated: 
Wednesday, August 25, 2010 - 8:52pm
Tanya Radford, Dominican College

Hector St. John de Crèvecoeur's *Letters from an American Farmer* and *Sketches of 18th-Century America* remain relevant because of their exploration of American contradictions, and the manner in which they negotiate the paradoxes of American identity. This panel will examine the tensions at the heart of Crèvecoeur's writings, and explore whether some sort of balance (or "equipoise," to use farmer James's term) is possible in our contradictory America. Please send 300-500 word abstracts to Tanya.Radford@dc.edu by Sept 30, 2010. Please include your name, title, and affiliation.

Material Culture Area

The study of material culture offers an exciting area for interdisciplinary research and conversation, as it brings together those engaged in scholarly inquiry in areas as diverse as history, art history, design, decorative arts, cultural studies, consumer studies, literature, communications, anthropology, and sociology. If your work touches on the study of designed objects and consumer goods, we would love to learn more about it at this year's conference in San Antonio. Academics, practitioners, graduate students, museum professionals, and public historians are welcome.

Wednesday, August 25, 2010 - 6:03pm
Dr Gareth Schott (Ed.) & Dr Kirstine Moffat (Ed.), University of Waikato, NZ

This edited collection will examine the cultural resurgence of the vampire. It aims to provide inter-disciplinary accounts of the reception and cultural impact of contemporary representations of the vampire evident across a broad range of mediums, including literature (e.g. Evernight, The Vampire Academy), film (e.g. Twilight saga), television (e.g. The Vampire Diaries, True Blood), graphic novels (e.g. Chibi Vampire) and games (e.g. Vampire Rain). The appeal of vampire mythology and its associated folklore for modern audiences will be examined in an age characterized by the transformative possibilities of the internet with both its low barriers to artistic expression and the erosion of the boundaries between author and audience.

"Interdisciplinary Studies and Women Modernists" Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA) 7-10 April, 2011.

updated: 
Wednesday, August 25, 2010 - 5:31pm
Laurel Harris, CUNY Graduate Center

In her recent anthology _Gender in Modernism_, Bonnie Kime Scott opens the literary field to include disciplines previously left out of the modernist frame such as dance, painting, cinema, and the sciences. In doing so, Scott broadens the scope of modernism and, in particular, provides new angles of inquiry into the work of women literary modernists. This panel will further explore this interdisciplinary move, asking how, and to what effect, we might bring the insights of other disciplines to bear on questions of gender in literary modernism. How did visual, aural, and performative art forms influence the work of modernist women writers?

Hando No Kuzushi

Hando No Kuzushi, an online literary journal, is gearing up for its third issue, tentatively scheduled to be posted at the end of September. We are seeking poetry, short works of fiction and non-fiction - and even academic essays - that pertain to the Asian American experience in 21st Century America. There is no set deadline.

For a better idea of what we are looking for, visit our website at hnkuzushi.blogspot.com. A judo term, Hando No Kuzushi denotes the unsettling of balance through reaction. That sounds about right to us...

All submissions must be emailed to Quinata.Delgado@gmail.com. We will do our best to respond within a few days.

Thanks!

[UPDATE]The Atrium: A Journal of Academic Voices.

updated:

Ivy Tech Community College of Indiana

Current Deadline: January 1, 2011. The Atrium: A Journal of Academic Voices presents a unique forum for the community of professionals engaged in post secondary education and research. We seek both creative writing (short stories and poetry) and academic articles (both narrative and research) that invite discussion across the disciplines. We also publish book and website reviews. The Atrium intends to be a passageway of ideas and practice across the disciplines. There is a murky landscape that practitioners must traverse on their way from Learning Theory to Instructional Practice: we seek papers that describe best practices and student engagement of controversial topics.

Justin Rogers-Cooper & Neil Meyer / NEMLA: Northeast Modern Language Association

Brian Massumi writes that affect is "ever on the move from situation to situation." This observation might also describe the use of affect in contemporary scholarship, and raises question around periodization and the stable categories we use in our discipline to demarcate historical boundaries.

Recent studies in corpus linguistics, varieties and typologies, dialects and Standard English, as well as pragmatics prompt examination of methods found conducive to promising results. The choice of the conference's theme stems from the widely shared view that methods of analysis involve at least the following related questions:
