This panel invites paper proposals that deal with modernism, the Great War, and streets broadly conceived. The Great War was a pivotal event in the development of modernism, and many of our key literary works - The Waste Land, Mrs. Dalloway, Parade’s End - respond in part to the pressures of the war. This influence extends beyond the traditional English modernist canon as well, to writers such as Mulk Raj Anand and Tayeb Salih.

Presidential Theme: “Persistence”
The relationship between the sciences and the humanities is one that is currently marked by tension. Often viewed as distinct in their approaches to collecting and creating data, the two fields rarely come together to combine methodologies and form what could be a powerful symbiosis of qualitative and quantitative research. For our 18th annual conference, the English Graduate Student Organization is especially interested in exploring the past, present, and future relationships between STEM and the humanities.

Patrick Johnson suggested in his article from 2001 entitled "'Quare' Studies, or (Almost) Everything I Know About Queer Studies I Learned from My Grandmother," "'quare'...not only speaks across identities, it articulates identities as well. 'Quare' offers a way to critique stable notions of identity and, at the same time, to locate racialized and class knowledges." Twenty years later, we ask whether southern studies has yet to be fully "quare"-ed.
The 12th Annual Louisiana Studies Conference will be held September 18-19, 2020 at Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. The conference committee is now accepting presentation proposals for the upcoming conference. The 2020 conference theme, “Losing Louisiana,” is dedicated to exploring the ways in which Louisiana’s cultures, environment, languages, and peoples are facing threats to their survival on a variety of fronts. What dangers do these threats pose to people, culture, and the environment? What solutions might be implemented to counter these threats? How can Louisiana pull back from the brink of disaster?

There are two ways of defining what we mean by the precariat. One is to say it is a distinctive socio-economic group, so that by definition a person is in it or not in it. This is useful in terms of images and analyses, and it allows us to use what Max Weber called an ‘ideal type’. In this spirit, the precariat could be described as a neologism that combines an adjective ‘precarious’ and a related noun ‘proletariat’.
– Guy Standing
Over the past seventy years, neoliberal thinkers have strategically reinvented classical liberal ideals in order to privilege a sense of personal freedom over the perceived overreach of government intervention. Once considered a fringe movement, neoliberalism has steadily become the central tenet of American life. It is now nearly impossible, for example, to imagine any mainstream voice espousing tax hikes or championing the sorts of policies enacted under Franklin Delano Roosevelt or Lyndon Johnson. Promises of privatization today trump collective action in virtually every aspect of life. This epistemic shift can be felt far and wide, from politicians to postmodern theorists.

This forthcoming issue of Platform considers labour through the creation and analysis of theatre and performance. We follow Kathi Weeks’s (2011) contention that the lived experiences of work have thus far received little attention in political and cultural theory and propose that the material and aesthetic space of theatre can illuminate this daily and bodily dimension of work. In theatrical labour, aesthetic considerations link both the practice of making and the practices of performance. Yet, studies of the performance of work have also been critiqued for conflating dimensions of practice and labour (Wikström 2012). With these tensions in mind, this issue aims to examine the various theatres of labour.
