The Georgia-Carolina College English Association (GACCEA) invites proposals for individual papers and three-person panels at its annual meeting in metropolitan Atlanta. The conference will be held on Friday, 29 January 2016, at Georgia Gwinnett College.
The topic is "Diaspora in the Digital Age: Texts of Leave-Taking to New Lands."
The plight of refugees far from their homeland has been a societal phenomenon for thousands of years. In the last two centuries alone, people have fled famine and fighting for resettlement in new lands. In the last two years, families have abandoned ancient villages for new destinations on other continents. Many families have left rural regions for urban centers during migrations within countries.

Race and Yoga Working Group

The Race and Yoga Research Working Group at the University of California, Berkeley will host its third annual conference on Friday, April 22, 2016. The theme of the conference is "Yoga Justice / Yoga Violence." Yoga can be a tool to promote social justice. Yet, it can also be used to perpetuate violence and oppression. This conference invites a diverse array of practitioners and scholars to critically examine justice and violence in yoga communities.

What is yoga justice? How is "justice" defined and by whom? How do we rethink narratives that promote justice through yoga? Conversely, what kinds of violence occur in yoga spaces? How are people responding and/or resisting forms of yoga violence?
