Conferences, Job Openings

Culled from the crwropps free e-mail list (with minimal editing on my part).

Call for Submissions for scholarly and creative submissions for a National Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference entitled “The End?” to be held at Indiana University in Bloomington from March 25th-27th, 2010. We are especially interested in creative submissions! We are looking for graduate student writers to give readings of their work that engage with the conference theme either thematically or formally (or both). Readings that challenge notions of endings, structure, or traditional formal boundaries, are all welcome, along with work that engages with the conference theme within the piece itself, through narrative or language. This conference hopes to examine how endings and limits are depicted, along with how we surpass (or are constrained by) them as writers. Other topics might include, but are not limited to: Endings as beginnings / beginnings as endings; The end of genre, crossing genre; Translation; The apocalypse and apocalyptic literature; The end of the human; Violence, death, grief, trauma; Moments of crisis; War; The ends of the earth; Fringe, margins, outlines; The future of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, etc. We encourage proposals for individual projects as well as panel proposals organized by topic/theme/form. Again, we are committed to involving as much creative work as possible in the conference and representing a wide variety of writers. Please submit an abstract of no more than 250 words describing your work and its relation to the conference theme, as well as five representative pages of creative work and as a short description of yourself, by January 15th, 2010 to iugradconference@gmail.com. Graduate Student Advisory Committee, Department of English, Indiana University.

Nonfiction Symposium Call for Entries. Center: A Journal of the Literary Arts invites submissions for a symposium on the importance of place in creative nonfiction, to appear in its next issue (spring 2010). We encourage you to consider place from a variety of perspectives. What is its role in the essay? in memoir? in literary journalism? How do concerns about conveying a sense of place affect your own work? in what ways do you see issues of place animating the work of others? How is place specific or general? Must place be physical or is it temporal as well? What role does craft play in the development of place? Submissions should be between 750 and 1000 words. Email your submission, in a .doc format with "symposium" in the header line, to cla@missouri.edu. Please include a short bio. Inquiries to barberse(at)missouri.edu. The deadline for submissions is January 15, 2010.
