In The Production of Space, Henri Lefebvre describes the city as "a production and reproduction of human beings by human beings." This conference aims to explore the poetics of (non)urban spaces and the city as a catalyst for self-making and -unmaking in the various localized manifestations of the self in literature and art. We envision metropolitan, (post)industrial, rural, etc. spaces as socially inflected images with the performative self at the core of their becoming.
A brief description is about the social and political up and downs in Spain from the 15th century to the 20th century through the eyes of the great poets, Quevedo and Machado.

Connecting the Dots in a Glocalized World 2016 will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas in the four main disciplines of language, linguistics, literature and translation.

The focus thus is on the under-examined interactions that occur as globalization takes on negotiated forms in different contexts.

The interwar years represent a period of profound – if sometimes hardly perceptible – change for women in Québec. After massively entering the industrial workforce during the First World War, Québec women were enfranchised at the federal level, but had to keep battling conservative forces to gain voting rights at the provincial level. The era's press, popular music, theater, radio, as well as the French and Hollwyood films massively consumed by women introduced new ideas, and manifestations of a new vernacular modernism overlapped with traditional cultural productions.
[DEADLINE EXTENDED: FEB. 1, 2015]
The purpose of this conference is to gather scholars interested in the study of women and gender inequities in education throughout the world. We hope to stimulate discussion surrounding the social, political and economic factors that impede the progressive role of women around the world. We intend to gather scholars of gender inequities and human rights in order to provoke discussion and thought surrounding these areas.
Topics of discussion may include, but are not limited to:
-The eradication of gender-based violence and its effect on social growth
-The transformative power of education and its effect on women's social, political and economic opportunities in developing nations
The James Purdy Society invites proposals for papers to be presented at a session sponsored by the society at the 2016 American Literature Association in San Francisco, California, 26-29 May 2016.
We are planning a session titled "James Purdy in Context." We are interested in papers that situate Purdy's work in literary, cultural, historical, biographical, and other contexts. We are interested in work that investigates sexuality, representations of ethnicity, adaptations, and other topics. Papers might compare Purdy and his milieu to the work of modern and contemporary authors such as Bellow, Philip Roth, Salinger, Gertrude Stein, Hemingway, Vidal, Capote, Dorothy Parker, Flannery O'Connor, and Albee.
