Subject:        Shakespeare Festival

The Drama Teachers Association of So. California will be holding its annual
High School Shakespeare Festival on March 16, 1996.  We are seeking people with
an academic/theatrical knowledge of the works of Shakespeare to be judges for
the competition.  There is no pay involved unless you can bank the "psychic
dollars" that Jerry Brown talks of but we will give you a great lunch and an
incredible day of Shakespeare as interpreted by the diverse student population
of So. California.  If you are interested in helping judge and would like
further information, you may contact me directly through the above e-mail
address.  Thank you.  Diana Sweeney

Subject:        MLA

    MLA Session Proposalfor 1996 Convention in Washington D.C.

I'm hoping to propose a panel on geography and literature. I'd welcome
explorations of representations of place, culture, cartography, colonization,
developing notions of landscape depiction, or theories of words and pictures in
relation to map or other illustrations in early modern texts.

Abstracts or papers should be sent to me at Oriel College, Oxford, OX1 4EW,
England or

Subject:        CALLS FOR PAPERS

I apologize for the extensive cross-posting, but believe many subscribers
should find this new list useful.  Please direct queries not to this list, but
to Jack Lynch at 
 This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

                       Calls for Papers in
                  English & American Literature

For the last two years, the English Department at the University of
Pennsylvania has kept a collection of calls for papers, conference
announcements, etc., on English and American literature, on Penn's English Web
and English Gopher.

To facilitate the exchange of information on upcoming conferences and
publication opportunities, Penn English has created an electronic mailing list,

 This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
 .  We encourage conference or panel organizers and volume
editors to find the largest possible audience for their announcements by
posting them on this list.

Announcements can include upcoming conferences, panels, essay collections, and
special journal issues related to English and American literature, and can
include calls for completed papers, abstracts, and proposals.  The boundaries
are flexible: all English-language literatures, cultural studies, queer theory,
bibliography, humanities computing, and comparative literature (even when not
concerned specifically with English or American literature) are within the
pale.  Conferences or panels devoted exclusively to literature not in English,
to music or art, to history, etc., are excluded unless they are relevant to
students of English and American literature, as are lecture series, regular
meetings of small local societies, fellowship opportunities, etc.

                           SUBSCRIBING
                           -----------

To subscribe to the list, address a message to

Do NOT send subscription messages to 
 This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
 .  The subject line
can be anything, but the body of the message should read

                          subscribe cfp

There should be nothing else: no name, no E-mail address.  You should receive a
confirmation message after a few minutes.  If you have any questions, contact
Jack Lynch at the address below.

                     ARCHIVE OF ANNOUNCEMENTS
                     ------------------------

Those interested in the calls for papers need not subscribe to the list
directly.  The announcements will be archived (within a few days of their
posting) and available on the World Wide Web at

                http://www.english.upenn.edu/CFP/

and on the English Gopher at

        gopher://gopher.english.upenn.edu/11/Announce/CFP

There they'll be grouped under rubrics (such as Renaissance, American, Theory,
Gender Studies) to make browsing easier. They'll remain there until the
conference has taken place. Please check to see whether they've been posted
already before sending additional copies.

                      POSTING ANNOUNCEMENTS
                      ---------------------

All panel organizers and volume editors are encouraged to make their calls for
papers or proposals on 
 This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
 . Calls can take any format in the
body of the message.  The subject line, though, should be as informative as
possible (to enable browsers to find relevant announcements quickly), and
should take the following form:

       CFP: Topic of Conference (deadline; conference date)

Messages that don't conform to this standard may be rejected.

The subject line has to fit in 67 characters, so be both brief and clear in
describing the topic of the conference.  Some tips:

    *   Rather than a cryptic panel title like "Imagined
        Encounters," use a descriptive entry like "New World in
        16th c."

    *   Put dates in numerals, in American notation (month/day).
        Specify the year only if the conference is more than a
        year in the future.  Include both the deadline for
        submissions and the date of the conference.

    *   In the case of major conferences where the name of the
        conference will be more useful than the dates (e.g., MLA,
        ASECS, NASSR, Kalamazoo), specify that instead.

    *   If the conference takes place outside North America, or
        if it's a graduate-student conference, note that as well.

Some examples:

    CFP: Communities & Communication (10/2; 12/1-12/2)
    CFP: Inst. for Early Am. Hist. & Culture (9/30; 5/31-6/2)
    CFP: Improvisation & Virtuosity (3/1; MLA)
    CFP: 18th-c. Short Story (8/18; ASECS)
    CFP: Romanticism in Theory (Denmark) (2/1; 6/28-6/30)
    CFP: Meaning in Middle Ages & Ren (grad) (6/30; 9/29-9/30)

                            ---------
                            ETIQUETTE
                            ---------

Preface the subject lines of all announcements with "CFP," and make the
descriptions as clear as possible, to enable subscribers to sort through
incoming mail.

Please check to see whether announcements have already appeared on the list
before sending additional copies.  Remember, it may take several days for an
announcement on the list to appear on the English Web or in the English Gopher.

In order to keep traffic to a minimum, the mailing list is strictly for
announcements, not for discussions of conferences. Advertisements of commercial
products or services not directly related to the purpose of the list are
forbidden.
