Ever since the discussion about the name and nature of the European People’s Party in the 1970s, Christian Democratic parties in Europe positioned themselves in an alliance with conservative people’s parties. Corruption scandals, monetary crises, fear for loss of (national) identity and especially concerns about immigration, globalization, and internal security increasingly caused voters to drift away from their traditional parties and from Europe. New political formations at the left and the right, including populist ones, competed for these votes. While some historians asserted that Christian Democratic parties have successfully resisted the populist trend to scale down tolerance, recent observers are not so sure anymore.

CALL FOR PAPERS
Eighteenth-Century Ireland Society/An Cumann Éire San Ochtú Céad Déag
2019 Annual Conference
Queen’s University Belfast
14-16 June 2019
Proposals are invited for twenty-minute papers (in English or Irish) on any aspect of eighteenth-century Ireland, including its history, literature, language, and culture. There is no specific conference theme, but proposals for papers and panels addressing the following topics will be particularly welcome:
Language is a crucial aspect of the Francophone world, on the threshold between French and Creole, or other indigenous languages. The decision to write in a certain language can be simply dictated by the author’s feelings, or it can become a true political statement. As well, choosing one does not always mean that the other will remain silent: whether such process is carefully crafted, or on the contrary happens on a subconscious level, languages influence one another, and such influx tend to surface in poems, novels, songs, and other forms of expression.
The Language of Truth on the Early Modern Stage
Soliciting papers for a paper session at SAMLA in Atlanta, GA, Nov 8-10, 2019. This session will respond to the conference theme of “Languages: Power, Identity, Relationships” by addressing the language of truth on the early modern stage. How do characters identify and categorize “truth”? What is “truth,” how does one identify it, and what value is ascribed to it? The panel welcomes a variety of approaches to the topic. Please send title, abstract (350 words max), and abbreviated cv by April 19, 2019 to Dr. Katie Kalpin Smith at: email@example.com.

We live in them, move through them, occupy them, gentrify them, lay claim, then
reclaim them, tame them and maim them. We build them, enrich them, define
them, consign them. They can be first or final frontiers, domestic or foreign, and
they can even encapsulate moments—curvatures in time. Given that space is the
fundamental medium through which we live our lives, how do we define spaces,
and how do spaces define us?

The Eighth Biennial Conference of the RECEPTION STUDY SOCIETY
Brigham Young University and The Provo Marriott Hotel & Conference Center
Sept. 26-28, Provo, Utah.
The Reception Study Society promotes informal and formal exchanges between scholars in several related fields: reader-response criticism and pedagogy, reception history, history of reading and the book, audience and communication studies, media studies, institutional studies, and gender, race, ethnic, sexuality, postcolonial, religious, and other studies.

In her 1977 essay “Toward a Black Feminist Criticism,” Barbara Smith says, “The use of Black women’s language and cultural experience in books by Black women about Black women results in a miraculously rich coalescing of form and content and also takes their writing far beyond the confines of white/male literary structures.” Smith uses “black women’s language” to make the case that a black feminist framework would have much in common with a rapidly expanding black women’s literary tradition. An unending source for “cultural manifestations” of black womanhood, literature from black women has a critical value outside of white/male literary structures.
