3rd Global Conference
Making Sense Of: Suicide

Saturday 10th November – Monday 12th November 2012
Salzburg, Austria

Call For Papers:
\Suicide, the deliberate and intentional act of ending one's life, is an assault on our ideas of what living is about. Whether we believe that we have the right to end our own life because we no longer wish to live, or that suicide is never morally permissible, the fact that people can arrange their deaths and that some do, challenges us to think about the nature of life, and of death.

Proceedings will be published. Please send your abstracts (450 words in length) by Feb 25 to Ionut Untea, Andrada Maran at registration@identitatis.org.

The rise of the ecologically-oriented approaches to literature and the development of ecocriticism as a scholarly discipline in the 1970s did not remain very long the prerogative of the Anglo-American literature and scholarship. Other national literatures and literary studies have been rapidly developing their views on the connections between literature and ecology; these are oftem based on different premises and follow their own respective literary traditions.
