Call for papers

My apologies for the silence of late. My two Impending Latin Exams of DOOM and two English exams this week are keeping me busy (and not in the best of health). I'm going to be very good and put off watching and reviewing Rome until after the exams are finished (perhaps Thursday night if I'm not too burnt out).

Anyway, I'm taking a short break from that to bring to your attention a CFP I just saw today:

Ovid's Metamorphoses in English Poetry
(University of Salzburg)
Deadline for submissions: 31 January 2006

Ovid's Metamorphoses has had an enormous influence on English literature - from Renaissance drama to postmodern prose fiction. The aim of this volume is to concentrate on poetry and bring together essays both on the reception of Ovid's Metamorphoses in English poetry and on verse translations. Contributors may explore a specific poem, poet, or translator, compare translations, or trace the reception of a particular story in different poets, periods, or in various poems of a particular period. The volume will be edited by Sabine Coelsch-Foisner and Wolfgang Görtschacher, members of the Department of English and of the Interdisciplinary Research Centre Metamorphic Changes in the Arts (IRCM). It is scheduled to appear in 2006/07. Papers should not exceed 14 pages (approximately 7.000 words). Proposals should be submitted by 31 January 2006, together with an abstract (maximum of 350 words) and a brief cv, and the completed papers sent by 31 July 2006 to the editors:

Sabine Coelsch-Foisner : sabine.coelsch-foisner@sbg.ac.at, or Wolfgang Görtschacher : wolfgang.goertschacher@sbg.ac.at.

Postal address: Department of English, University of Salzburg, Akademiestr. 24, A-5020 Salzburg, Austria, Tel: 0043-66-8044-4422,

Fax: 0043-662-8044-167.

I know absolutely nothing about this personally, so questions should be directed at those contacts.
