Following the theme of this year’s Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences, this panel seeks to explore what the forthcoming years of scholarship might hold for early modern studies. The two papers in this panel examine topics of renewed interest that promise to have a renaissance of their own in future years. Grace Ioppolo’s forthcoming collected works of Thomas Heywood promises to usher in a renewed interest in the playwright, and the Map of Early Modern London project’s goal to produce the first complete anthology of the mayoral shows will make these texts accessible to scholars and students in an open access digital format.
Abstracts are invited for papers addressing any aspect of Charles d'Orléans’s literary influences. Topics might include Charles’s use of particular sources, his complex engagement with French and English traditions, his formalism, his multilingualism, his relationship to prison writing, and his influence on later writers. Please submit a 250-500 word abstract for a 20-minute presentation to firstname.lastname@example.org.
CFP for a Special Issue of Resilience: A Journal of the Environmental Humanities
From Afrofuturism to dystopian, apocalyptic fiction to alternate history to ecofeminism and cli-fi, authors of speculative fictions have been interrogating alternative worlds in literature, film, television, comic books, and video games. These visions give us access to alien planets as well as alternative perspectives on our own pasts, presents, and possible futures. They reflect our hopes and fears; they offer new narratives of race, class, gender, sexuality, and nationality; they suggest the magic and the horror embedded in our own realities.

Saturday April 8th, 8;30am-5:30pm, Campus
Theme: Romances in Middle-earth
Organizers of the Tolkien at UVM Conference are now accepting abstracts for the 2017 conference until the February 1st deadline.
This is a Call for Contributions for an EXHIBITION and a BOOK. The EXHIBITION is so far virtual (hosted on www.familylineups.com). All projects will initially be published on our website and will take BOOK form when we have secured a sufficient number of high-quality images.
The title of this project is FAMILY LINE-UPS. Trans-generational Encounters in Family Photography. It is part of a wider research project currently examining the role of family photography in the process of the inter-generational transmission of memory, with a focus on the manner in which exile acted on the structure of the family and the coherence of its genealogy.
The objective of this conference is to tackle new media contents and the exchanges produced. The conference also aims at analyzing the impact of this new media landscape on intercultural communication and on the economic processes. The conference will, thus, focus on the following areas:
Cultural Diversity: New Media and Contexts

▪ New media, freedom of religion, culture shock
▪ Literary and artistic productions in the digital era
New Media andPower: Intercultural Issues
▪ New media and its impact on promoting human rights
