Abstracts (300 words) or completed papers (20 minutes max) are invited for a proposed panel on "Utopia and Apocalypse" at the 2017 Society for Utopian Studies conference in Memphis, November 8-12. For the panel, I will give preference to papers that explicitly explore connections between utopia and apocalypse. I invite examinations of “utopia” in any of its flavors—utopia proper, dystopia, ambiguous or critical utopia, anti-utopia, etc. Papers not chosen for the panel will be forwarded to the general conference submission pool. Please send submissions by midnight EDT on Friday, August 11 to: Gib Prettyman, cgp3@psu.edu.  Apologies for the short notice.

The Carson McCullers Society seeks abstracts on the theme of "Byways in Carson McCullers Scholarship" for the biennial Society for the Study of Southern Literature conference in Austin, TX this February 15-18, 2018. The theme is deliberately broad but especially invites papers on McCullers' literary and biographical engagements with the U.S. military, non-southern characters in her oeuvre, and how her travels and readings abroad, including in Rome and New York, influenced her work. If interested, please send a 250-word abstract and short bio to Society Vice President Isadora J. Wagner (iwagner@go.olemiss.edu) by Thursday, September 7th. Other paper topics related to McCullers will also be considered.
