ACLA, 4-7 April 2013, Toronto "Packing and Unpacking: On Portable Belongings and Identities "(DEADLINE: NOV. 15 2012)

Sunday, November 11, 2012 - 5:23pm
American Comparative Literature Association

Packing, both literally and figuratively, marks the first ritual of any journey; to unpack, likewise, marks the last ritual of arrival. No matter why we set out, whether in search of adventure, of ourselves, or of a cure, we always carry something along with us. In fact, it will be these things which will, in great measure, define the journey. How do we "pack" our belongings and our identities? How do these transform the spaces we encounter along the way? How are these transformed by the spaces in which they are situated? What do we take with us to give us comfort when we leave our comfort zones?

CFP: "Shaw at Home" - G. B. Shaw Conference in UK, June 17-22, 2013. Deadline Feb.15, 2013.

Sunday, November 11, 2012 - 1:43pm
Richard Dietrich / International Shaw Society

"Shaw at Home," a conference of international scholars, which will take place mostly in the village of Ayot St. Lawrence north of London, reminds us that "Shaw's Corner" in Ayot was the Shaws' home longer, 44 years, than any other residence. "Shaw's Corner" is now maintained partly as a museum and as the stage for annual productions of Shaw's plays on the back lawn. The Shaws also had several residences in London, of course, and the conference will spend a day in London touring Shavian sites there, starting at the London School of Economics. The Keynote Address will be by Sir Michael Holroyd.

Supernatural Literature: an open panel

Saturday, November 10, 2012 - 11:17pm
Popular Culture Association National Meeting, Washington, DC, 3-28-4-1

I have permission to set up a session on Supernatural Literature at the 2013 Popluar Culture Association meeting in Washington, DC 3/28 to 4/01. All submissions should be sent to the Science Fiction and Fantasy Area chair on the PCA home page, citing the words "supernatural literature." This is an open panel on any aspect of the topic: apparitions, werewolves, vampires, ghosts--but do keep this as "literary" as possible. American and European ideas are particularly welcome as we look back to the dark ages and move into Stephen King. Any inquiries may be sent to me, but abstracts should go to the PCA area chair mentioned above.
