Indigenous communities offer models of collective sustainability, territorial sovereignty, ecological justice, and cultural persistence keenly appealing to a world threatened by environmental rapine and ideological warfare. The Eighth Annual Charles Town International Maroon Conference aims at nothing less than building a global indigenous community without borders. Legacy of the recently deceased Colonel Frank Lumsden, leader of the Charles Town Maroons, this vision of global unity among geographically distinct yet politically allied indigenous communities advances an alternative to global woes that combines transnational commonality with cultural specificity and political purpose.
The Steering Committee of BWWC 2016 will be accepting proposals until 1/15/2016. Please find our original CFP online at https://bwwc2016.wordpress.com/call-for-papers/.

UNApocalypse: Exploring Dystopianism in Texts
We welcome proposals for our upcoming Conference 6-8 October 2016, in Salt Lake City, Utah. The proposal should focus on the artist's use of science in literature, whether physical, biological, or medical. For example, Dante utilized many aspects of medieval optical physics in the creation of his "Paradiso." William Carlos Williams, used his education as a physician to create his works of poetry. Science and Art possess a deep connection that extends through centuries. This is your opportunity to reveal this symbiotic relationship to others. Please submit your proposal to email@example.com no later than 1 March 2016. We look forward to hearing from you.
Talks on any aspect of the session topic are welcome: models, tips, strategies for teaching literature (English, American, world, other). Come share what's working in your classroom. This is a fun panel with great energy and enthusiasm.
Please send a 250 word proposal and a brief bio by March 1 to Monica Hart at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Gender, Translocality and the City Research Group at the University of Debrecen is pleased to announce its first annual workshop, which is going to explore the intersections of gender, location and emotion in post-1945 literary and visual texts. The primary aim of the workshop is to investigate the production of metropolitan spaces in a comparative theoretical framework, focusing on iconic cities such as London, New York, Budapest, Berlin, among other locations. The main theoretical questions we intend to address are the following: what is the role of literature in mapping the intersection of emotion and contemporary urban spatialities?

Conformity & Resistance
No longer limited to records, stages, and videos, popular music has widened its sphere of influence by entering the realm of museums and tourism. For the past decades, popular music themed exhibitions have multiplied as well as diversified, and have in the process gained growing visibility and cultural momentum. Be it in the form of spatially fixed museum spaces that draw international audiences, or be it in the form of traveling exhibits that transport displays across the limits of cities and nations: Exhibitions revolving around popular music participate in and contribute to the global circulation of meanings, values, and emotions ascribed to and associated with diverse genres of and eras in popular music.
