Despite the Civil War's lasting impact on popular culture in the U.S., the literature of the Civil War period remains an understudied area of nineteenth-century American literary studies. This proposed panel welcomes papers on literature of and about the Civil War through the end of reconstruction. Papers on individual texts or larger trends are welcome.

Please email a 250-word proposal and a 1-page c.v. to crowell2@illinois.edu by December 15, 2010.

This seminar seeks papers that consider the formal uses of humor, parody and satire as a project of "speaking" or "finding one's voice" within and against the constrictions of a colonizing language. We are especially interested in the use of various forms of humor or wit, especially in formally innovative, "experimental" works, which require a mastery of the language even as one makes it strange. Given the vexed histories of joking and the unstable line between having fun and being made fun of, we are especially interested in exploring the political questions motivated by breakdowns in or challenges to conventional literary representation.

Women of Ireland : confronting Eastern and Western perspectives (16-17 June 2011)

updated: 
Wednesday, October 20, 2010 - 12:06pm
Université Sorbonne Nouvelle - Paris 3

If contemporary research on Ireland and its relationship with the world has tended, understandably, to privilege either the United States or Great Britain, the aim of this conference is to move beyond these geographical boundaries and consider Ireland's relationship not just with its British neighbours, but also with Eastern Europe and the Middle East, and to analyse this specifically in relation to women's experiences. Ireland has undergone massive change over the last two decades, the years of economic boom and immigration having recently given way to economic disaster and the introduction of hardline immigration

Katie R. Muth

We welcome paper proposals on narrative scale in late twentieth- and early twenty-first-century fiction, film, or visual media for the 2011 International Conference on Narrative. We are specifically interested in essays exploring the relationship between narrative representation and what the selection of scale brings to view or obscures. For example, what is made legible if we imagine literary history in terms of blunt dates (like the annular study) rather than in terms of broad conceptual markers (like modernity)? Or what is the relationship between evolution as metaphor bounded by narrative and scientific evolutionary theory? Particular areas of interest might include:
