(http://torch.ox.ac.uk/earth-sea-sky). Our central aims are 1. to examine the varied and
contested medieval and early modern approaches to the natural world, and 2. to
consider how this premodern archive resonates with environmental degradation and
global warming in our current moment. In three linked symposia we will focus on each
domain of “Earth, Sea, Sky.”
The Ohio State University’s Medieval and Renaissance Graduate Student Association (MRGSA) is currently accepting abstracts and panel proposals for its sixth annual graduate student symposium. This symposium will take place on Friday, September 13th, 2019 at OSU in Columbus, Ohio. Prospective papers will be considered by those working in subfields of Medieval and Renaissance studies, and particular attention will be paid to proposals that examine the specific theme of Bodies in Motion as outlined below. Numerous scholars in pre-modern fields have been investigating how the human body functioned during these eras, while others have been examining moving bodies in a more ambiguated sense, as in bodies of knowledge or the body politic.

Sexuality and Agency
An Inclusive Interdisciplinary Conference
Saturday 12th October 2019 - Sunday 13th October 2019
From government incentives for women to have more children and the ‘slut-shaming’ phenomenon, to the erasure of rights and legal recognition of LGBTIQ++ people, and beyond, we live in a time where political and social forces play a powerful role in regulating our sexuality and sexual behaviour. It is therefore necessary and timely to consider how sexuality is related to our agency as human beings, particularly in terms of how autonomy and self-determination shape and are shaped by sex and sexuality.
This special issue of the Journal of the Assembly for Expanded Perspectives on Learning (JAEPL) seeks to elucidate the continually undervalued and unrecognized aspects of emotional labor in education for both students and instructors. Although emphases on outcomes, skills, and cognition serve valuable purposes, they also tend to eclipse emotional processes that are taken for granted and therefore rendered invisible despite being vital aspects of the labor performed by stakeholders in all educational settings. This special issue will take as its premise the notion that we must consider emotions as work in order to obtain a fuller picture of what transpires with teachers and learners in institutional contexts and beyond.

Recent upheaval from the Trump administration’s policy-making in the United States has seen the lives of queer subjects radically altered. This has included numerous executive orders that seek to curtail the power and agency of certain groups based on race, disability, gender, and sexuality particularly. Such identity distinctions are being made through an increasingly nationalist, and therefore heteronormative, lens which lends itself to the supremacy of ideals that support hegemonic cultural discourse.
