Your CV This Week: Sign up for a list serv
The links to CFPs we post here on the GSA website are great, but there’s a veritable ocean of CFPs out there for you to choose from. The best way to find CFPs that relate to your work is by looking at or signing up to receive a list serv.
List servs offer lists of CFPs, or Calls For Papers. List servs have CFPs for both conferences (if accepted, you would be invited to present your paper at the conference) and publications (if accepted, your paper will be published). Both conference presentations and publications are good to have on your CV.
You can sign up to receive these Calls For Papers via email, or read them in an RSS reader, or check the websites regularly.
Check out the links below, choose one or two that look like they fit your academic work, and sign up, or at least glance at them regularly.
UPenn list serve, which will allow you to sign up for categories in Literary Studies, Rhetoric, Ethic Studies, Gender Studies, Film, Interdisciplinary Studies, and others.
H-Net: This site has links to 100+ different lists in many branches of History, as well as some Gender Studies, Literary Studies and Philosophy lists.
