On July 1, 2017, ESC: English Studies in Canada will be moving from its long-time home at the University of Alberta to its new residence at Western University. To mark this occasion, and as a parting editorial gesture, the Co-Editors will publish a special issue on the theme of “transitions.” The theme avails itself of multiple disciplinary, theoretical, methodological, cultural, political, historical, and other contextual investments. In recognizing that broad applicability, our capacious understanding of the term is designed to invite widespread and diverse interest.

Mobility and Space in Late Medieval and Early Modern Europe
Friday 23rd June 2017, University of Oxford
The application of spatial paradigms to the study of late medieval and early modern societies is now well underway. In contrast, the so-called ‘mobility turn’ has struggled to find its way from the social sciences to the humanities and, in particular, to disciplines concerned with the study of the past. This conference proposes to bring the two together by exploring how everyday mobility contributed to the shaping of late medieval and early modern spaces, and how spatial frameworks affected the movement of people in pre-modern Europe.
The 47th Annual Conference of the Society for the Study of Midwestern Literature will be held June 1- 3, 2017 at Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center at Michigan State University, East Lansing.

Deadline: no later than Dec. 31, 2016 Find the online proposal form at ssml.org/symposium.

May 12-13, 2017
The modern fact is that we no longer believe in this world. We do not even believe in the events which happen to us, love, death, as if they only half concerned us. It is not we who make cinema; it is the world which looks to us like a bad film.
