Film Locations: Cities of the Imagination, a new film series to be published by Intellect Books, seeks contributors to the Paris volume.

The term "New Media" generally refers to digital, computerized, or networked information and communication technologies in the latter part of the 20th century to the present.

Shakespeare and Early Modern Emotion
An International and Interdisciplinary Conference
29 June – 1 July 2011
The Andrew Marvell Centre, The University of Hull
This conference will explore the performance and representation of emotion in the work of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. In the last decade, scholars have been increasingly interested in the cultural history of emotions, arguing that they should be regarded as 'social phenomena' rather than inward experiences. At the same time, we have seen a resurgence of interest in the ethical and philosophical aspects of literary texts, and a return to thinking about ideas of 'human nature'.
"Poetry and Cognition" (April 15-16, 2011)
This two-day graduate student conference, to be held at Princeton University, will bring together graduate students and faculty from a range of disciplines to discuss the relationships between theories of mind developed by philosophers, cognitive scientists and linguists, and the poetry of different cultures and eras. The conference will feature a keynote address by Ian Lancashire, Professor of English at The University of Toronto.
We are currently accepting submissions for the first issue of our experimental creative writing magazine, "The Caterpillar Chronicles", scheduled to appear in January 2011.
The deadline for these submissions is DECEMBER 31.
The first issue will be built around the following theme: MIRRORS
We welcome submissions of texts and images related to our theme that can fall under the following provisional sections:
IMAGE & TEXT
Every issue will suggest a photograph. This will give the theme of the issue and will serve as a starting point for texts of fiction and poetry. We accept submissions of short poetic fiction (around 500 words) or poetry based on the proposed image.
