Conference Theme--It's Only Natural(ism): Questioning and Responding to the Master Narrative of Late Modernity

April 9-11, 2015
Charleston Southern University
Charleston, South Carolina

Keynote Speaker: Roger Lundin, Wheaton College

Undergraduates thrilling to the bleak despair of Stephen Crane or Thomas Hardy are often excited to discover the existence of naturalism as a philosophy of life and a literary movement of great importance. They are quick to draw parallels to contemporary issues and controversies, for naturalism's reach is clearly not confined to the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

The University of Waterloo's Games Institute as well as the IMMERSe Research Network is proud to host a MetaFandom Unconference on Thursday, September 18th and Friday the 19th.

Attendees shouldn't prepare papers or presentations; rather, they should come to the unconference prepared to speak briefly about a specific topic as a panelist, ask informed questions of other panelists, and, most importantly, get to know other scholars, experts, and interested fans.

ASECS 2015: Things that didn't happen

updated: 
Monday, July 28, 2014 - 10:07am
American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies

Rather a lot of things happened in the long eighteenth century. However, there are also a great number of things that – importantly – didn't. This session is interested in how those things were used and represented in eighteenth-century culture, seeking to explore three (or more) kinds of non-occurrence: things that (only just) failed to happen; things that were said to have happened, but didn't; and speculative futures that failed (or are still failing) to come to pass. The conjuring or imagining of alternative histories and futures – the Jacobite threat, for instance – was central to the ways in which contemporaries oriented themselves in time and culture, shaping identities national, partisan, literary, religious, professional and even personal.

CFP: Revealing/Reveiling Shanghai: 20th and 21st Century Representations (abstracts due 9/30/14)

Editors are seeking submissions for a proposed book-length collection of essays on representations of Shanghai in film and literature of the last hundred years. Shanghai is paradoxically inclusive yet distancing; familiar yet always portrayed as "the other." Its complex history as a quasi-colonial city, both the birthplace of Communist China and the epitome of 21st-century capitalism, makes it especially interesting for study today within an international context.

50th International Medieval Congress
Kalamazoo, MI
May 15-17, 2015

From tournaments and chess to gambling and jeux-partis, medieval games were prominent in cultural imaginations across Europe. Games constituted a popular aspect of leisure in the Middle Ages, but we have only recently seen a rise in scholarly interest among medievalists.

For this session at Kalamazoo, we seek papers that explore game phenomena in the Middle Ages, including historical trends, literature, and material artifacts, as constructs with cultural significance. Papers might address any of the following topics:
