Regarding Nicolas Calas: An International Symposium
Athens School of Fine Arts, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens
21-22 October 2016
This Companion will cover the relationship between food and literature in the broadest sense. In recent years, food studies has developed into a solid and distinctly academic field of studies; the relationship between representational structures –such as literature – and the uses of food metaphors that these make has gained significant interest from the academic community, in interdisciplinary and transnational contexts. 'Literary food studies' can be viewed as a new and emerging field of enquiry, which re-evaluates, rethinks and (re-)discovers the importance of food and eating in understanding the ways we live and communicate.

We are seeking proposals for an interdisciplinary anthology, tentatively titled "Perma/Culture: Imagining Alternatives in an Age of Crisis," that will treat cultural production and practices related to "alternatives"—both critical and creative, descriptive and imaginative—that challenge the unjust and unsustainable systems that dominate at present.
Faulkner and Hemingway
A Conference Sponsored by the Center for Faulkner Studies
Southeast Missouri State University
Cape Girardeau, Missouri
October 20-22, 2016
This "Faulkner and Hemingway" conference invites proposals for twenty-minute papers on any topic related to William Faulkner and/or Ernest Hemingway. All critical approaches, including theoretical and pedagogical, are welcomed. We are particularly interested in inter-textual approaches that treat both authors. Proposals for organized panels are also encouraged.
In the post-1945 Cold War, in the post-millennial 9/11 period with Daesh-influenced ideological cultural clashes, the concept of undercover espionage and the spy has returned center-stage if in a different set of cultural markers. During the post 1945 era we had Checkpoint Charlie, moles, counter-intelligence and now one is faced with a vocabulary consisting of betrayers, Western-sponsored agents who are beheaded in the Middle East, Ukrainian counter-intelligence agents who are betrayed on both sides. How do social, filmic and literary narratives deal with such broad paradigms? What is the aesthetic of espionage and counter-espionage? Historically such issues have a long resonance, stretching back to at least the reign of the first Elizabeth in England.
