UPDATE Extended Deadline (Feb 15)--Herman Melville's Poetic (Dis)continuities ALA May 22-25, 2014

Friday, January 24, 2014 - 11:20am
The Melville Society / ALA

Herman Melville's poetry and poetic career can be characterized as distinctly lacking in continuity. Not only does his turn to poetry signal a dramatic shift in his life's work, his poems and collections typically defy patterns of continuum—poems embedded into prose pieces, collections strikingly departing from each other thematically and stylistically, publication ambitions and relationships to readers inconsistent and nebulous. Within individual poems, too, we witness Melville's stylistic and philosophical fissions, abrasions, and reversals.

FINAL CALL "Pushing Form: Innovation and Interconnection in Contemporary European Performance"

Friday, January 24, 2014 - 10:40am
National University of Ireland, Galway

European and Western performance discourse historically has often presumed a hegemonic and majority white field of practice despite an increasingly diverse European population. How does the present reality of European theatre and performance challenge traditional assumptions? And how specifically does formal innovation provide the space for critiques of power and hierarchy that may rework the concept of "Europe" as realized through performance? How have artists responded through form to neoliberalism and globalization in the wake of the most recent world economic crisis and how does their specifically European context set the terms of this response?

[Update] Post-9/11 Literature and Media (abstracts due January 31st)

Friday, January 24, 2014 - 8:12am
Paul Petrovic

I seek proposed chapters for a collection of essays tackling emergent post-9/11 literature and media. An academic publisher has already expressed interest in this collection.

While several books already exist that cover post-9/11 literature, they typically camp out on the usual suspects (Don DeLillo's Falling Man, Jonathan Safran Foer, Oliver Stone, Paul Greengrass). In contrast, the primary aim of this collection is to broaden that coverage by gathering together articles on newer fiction and examining how these diverse texts complicate and expand upon the initial wave of post-9/11 media.

Visualizing Fantastika: an interdisciplinary conference,
July 4, 2014

Lancaster University's department of English and Creative Writing and Lancaster Institute for the Contemporary Arts invites proposals for an interdisciplinary conference: Visualizing Fantastika.

Fantastika, coined by John Clute, is an umbrella term which incorporates the genres of fantasy, science fiction, and horror, but can also include alternative histories, steampunk, young adult fiction, or any other imaginative space. The conference wishes to consider the visual possibilities of the fantastic in a wide range of arts and media, which may include, but is not limited to: graphic novels, film, illustrations, games, and other visual media.
