Subject: 11.0200 Lists
Comment:        RE: SHK 11.0200 Lists

With Hardy's permission, I will send my response to Abdulla al-Dabbagh's
request to the entire list, as it may be of interest to others,
especially those who trace the Bard's literary legacy.

I highly recommend the list for author (and, yes, playwright) Vladimir
Nabokov: NABOKV-L. (Nabokov's work is, of course, rich in Shakespearean
allusion. His most innovative-and arguably his best-'novel', _Pale
Fire_, derives from Shakespeare's work not only its title, but many of
its myriad levels of meaning. As a bonus, it comes complete with its own
internal authorship controversy! His other novels also abound with
references to Shakespeare.)

Like SHAKSPER, NABOKV-L is a moderated list, in the capable hands of
renowned Nabokov scholar D. Barton Johnson of the University of
California, Santa Barbara, assisted by the equally renowned and capable
Galya Diment of the University of Washington. Also like SHAKSPER, it
boasts of a wide range of erudite participants, including Nabokovian
studies' preeminent authority and VN's definitive biographer Brian Boyd,
as well as VN's son and translator Dmitri Nabokov. I think SHAKSPER-eans
will approve of the calibre of the discussion. (Needless to say, threads
arise with some regularity which would interest those intrigued by the
legitimate literature/pop culture/pornography discussion!)

To subscribe to NABOKV-L, send an email to

with message body "SUBSCRIBE NABOKV-L".

Cheers,
Neil Spence
San Francisco

PS: Those interested will also want to explore Zembla, the excellent
Nabokov website, at
http://www.libraries.psu.edu/iasweb/nabokov/zembla.htm.

Comment:        Re: SHK 11.0200 Lists

I run the Literary Calls for Papers mailing list and website at Penn,
and I have included some information about it below.  Jack Lynch, who
founded the CFP list many years ago and is now at Rutgers-Newark,
maintains a list of email mailing lists in literary studies on his
website at:

        http://andromeda.rutgers.edu/~jlynch/Lit/

Hope this helps!

Best,
Erika Lin

                      =====================

                       Calls for Papers in
                  English & American Literature

Since 1995, 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.

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

                    
 This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
 

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 Erika Lin 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
week of their posting) and available on the World Wide Web at

                http://www.english.upenn.edu/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 '99)
    CFP: 18th-c. Short Story (8/18; ASECS, 4/14-4/16)
    CFP: Romanticism in Theory (Denmark) (2/1; 6/28/01-6/30/01)
    CFP: Meaning in Middle Ages & Ren (grad) (6/30; 9/29-9/30)
    CFP: Film and Narrative (7/1; journal)

Note that with several thousand subscribers, some addresses on
the list are no longer correct, as people change addresses
without unsubscribing, or as hosts change names.  The moderator
tries to keep the list current, but you may receive error
messages from some of these bad addresses when you send a call
for papers.  You can safely ignore them.  If you want to know
whether a call for papers successfully made it to the bulk of
the subscribers, you can either check the archive on the Web or
contact the moderator.

                            ---------
                            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.

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.


                        ------------------
                        OFF-TOPIC MESSAGES
                        ------------------

The CFP mailing list is meant strictly for announcements of calls
for papers: not for discussion of them, and certainly not for
discussion of anything else, including social issues, chain
letters, virus warnings, and so on.  Please refrain from posting
such messages to the list.

If someone does post an off-topic message, please simply ignore
it.  The list owner will contact the poster privately.
Commenting publicly just increases the off-topic trafic.


                          -------------
                          OTHER MATTERS
                          -------------

If a call for papers must be updated -- to reflect a change in
the location or date of the conference or the deadlines -- please
replace the "CFP:" in the subject line with "UPDATE:" and be
explicit about exactly what has changed in the body of the
message.  Please send only actual updates to the list: refrain
from merely reiterating past calls for papers.

(don't include your name or address).

The Majordomo software on which the CFP list is run, I'm afraid,
has no facility for digests and no "nomail" option.  Those who
find the volume of mail too high should rely on the Web archive;
those who wish to stop receiving mail for a short while should
simply unsubscribe and resubscribe later.
