Digital Defoe: Studies in Defoe & His Contemporaries is accepting submissions for its third issue, to appear in 2011. This issue will focus on how the interdisciplinary field of eighteenth-century studies, broadly researched and taught, is surviving in the academic and economic culture of the second decade of the twenty-first century. Topics may include, but need not be limited to, the following:
Gaga Stigmata – Critical Writings & Art About Lady Gaga
Special Call for Submissions: Gaga/Dada
The online journal Gaga Stigmata invites submissions of critical and creative pieces that explore Lady Gaga's relationship with Dadaism. We're looking for pieces that examine the ways in which Dadaism influences Gaga's work, and for pieces that analyze how Gaga revises and reframes Dadaist ideas for a 21st century context. That is, how does Gaga at once draw from Dadaism, and/or refigure Dadaism?

Papers in this area will draw on the conference theme "Fortunes." Proposals may conceive the conference theme broadly.
'Civilization arises and unfolds in and as play' (Johan Huizinga, Homo Ludens). In civic entertainment, 'play' constitutes the primary formative element in human culture that affords and sustains common interest and amusement. Texts produced in the classical, medieval and the Renaissance periods document how the Church, the Court, and the citizens devise their 'play' in triumphal entries, court entertainment, civic festivals, religious rituals, processions, drama, music and dance.

EIGHTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON THE BOOK
6-8 November 2010
University of St. Gallen, St. Gallen, Switzerland
The Book Conference serves as an inclusive forum for examining the past, current and future role of the book. It proceeds from recognition that although the book is an old medium of expression, it embodies thousands of years' experience of recording knowledge. The pervasive influence of this experience continues to shape newer forms of information technology, while at the same time providing a reference point for innovation.
Proposals are invited for a special issue of The Journal of Commonwealth and Postcolonial Studies on Australian literature. The editors will consider papers on any aspect of Australian literature, but papers must have a postcolonial theoretical orientation. The editors are particularly interested in papers addressing work by Indigenous and emerging authors, and papers dealing with issues such as transnationalism, settler colonialism and immigration.
