Although Eugene O'Neill wrote decades before the emergence of Ecocriticism and Eco-theater, his plays reverberate with concerns about human relationships with the environment, including apprehensions about commercialization (The Glencairn Plays, 'Ile, The Hairy Ape), connections to the sea (Anna Christie and Long Day's Journey Into Night), and to the land (Beyond the Horizon and Desire Under the Elms), and the colonial encounters with native peoples (The Moon of the Caribbees and The Emperor Jones). Having received rather little critical attention, these reverberations with Ecocriticism represent fertile areas of scholarship for both O'Neill studies and modern drama.

The College English Association, a gathering of scholar-teachers in English studies, welcomes proposals for presentations for our 46th annual conference.
Samuel Hynes identifies the Great War as "the great imaginative event": "not a falsification of reality, but […] the accepted interpretation of the war, repeated in texts written by authors who did not experience the war, but who inherited its myth." With the centenary of the outbreak of the Great War just behind us, and the bicentenary of the end of the Napoleonic Wars just ahead, this panel explores the ways in which the 'great wars' of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries are (re)interpreted and (re)imagined, both by their contemporaries and, perhaps more pressingly, by ours.

We invite paper proposals for a panel the H.D. International Society is organizing at the Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture since 1900, February 26-28, 2015, hosted each year by the University of Louisville in Louisville, KY. The focus of the panel, "New Approaches to H.D." is open-ended, and we will consider work focusing on any aspect of H.D. and/or her circle, although the interdisciplinary emphasis of the conference (which expressly embraces literature's relationship to other arts and disciplines) means that an interdisciplinary angle might be especially appropriate.
