[UPDATE] Interventions in English Studies: Finding Our Places

updated: 
Friday, December 13, 2013 - 10:30pm
The University of Dayton

"When I cannot see words curling like rings of smoke round me I am in darkness ­I am nothing." -Virginia Woolf, The Waves

Turn your semester's research papers into conference papers. In celebration of 50 years of graduate studies, The University of Dayton invites you to join us March 29, 2014 for a graduate conference devoted to an exploration of the space and place that words create. How does space inform our identities as writers? How do we perceive space, literally and figuratively, in literature? How does race or gender influence the space we are given, or take, in society? Where is our place in the classroom and what can we do with it?

Call for Papers: Edited Collection on Biopolitics and Utopia (due April 1, 2014)

updated: 
Friday, December 13, 2013 - 4:15pm
Andrew Byers and Patricia Stapleton

We are seeking chapters that address and explore approaches to utopia and biopolitics, both very broadly conceived. Scientific progress in "improving" the human body and experience has provoked ethical, moral, and policy considerations regarding both intent and results. This edited volume seeks to address questions of utopian drives and desires in these modern advances, as well as the idea of governmental and other institutional interventions into the human body.

Gender, Religion and the Atlantic World
Newcastle University
May 15, 2014

The relationship between religious experience and gender remains underexplored in academic scholarship. While it is largely held that the 'victims' of religion, in all its manifestations, are female, and the 'perpetrators' male, the reality is clearly less straightforward. This assumption does, however, beg further investigation into the dynamics attendant upon religious experience and/or practice, and gender.
