Simone de Beauvoir saw old age as a category of unrecognized but radical difference, a situation of being "outside humanity." The old, Beauvoir argues, are foreigners, even to themselves. Ann Kaplan has similarly theorized old age as an experience of ideological trauma, while Kathleen Woodward shows that the old, and old women in particular, are incompatible with psychoanalytic models of the subject. For all of these theorists, old age is a troubling site of psychic violence, where our understandings of identity, subjectivity, and humanity come under pressure. This proposed panel for the 2016 conference of the Modernist Studies Association (Pasadena, 17-20 November 2016) poses the question of what old age meant to modernism.

Although migratory movements have always existed throughout history, migration is nowadays usually associated with globalization and the resulting increase in the global mobility of people and information. In contrast to other forms of movement, migration normally refers to a relatively permanent displacement of individuals or groups from one region or country to another. However, migration describes a variety of experiences, referring to different groups of individuals, such as refugees, economic or environmental migrants and cosmopolitan elites with distinct social, political and legal status.

This is a call for article-length scholarly contributions for inclusion in a proposed anthology broadly focused on the entangled relationship between poetries and ecologies.

Jonathan Skinner's edited journal, ecopoetics, published between 2001 and 2007, constituted a fertile platform of enquiry into the relationship between poetry and the environment, its meaning, possibilities, modus operandi, processes, objectives, tactics, and responses. Contributors proposed and presented writing that often opposed the traditional stance of nature poetry, which seeks to possess the natural world through the deployment of the word, casting a figurative net on a vanquished wilderness.

William Castle will likely forever be remembered first as "The Master of Gimmicks" and "The Abominable Showman": the director of exciting gimmick films like Macabre (1958), House on Haunted Hill (1959), The Tingler (1959), 13 Ghosts (1960), Homicidal (1961) and Mr. Sardonicus (1961), and the maestro behind the Emergo, Percepto and Illusion-O, the punishment poll and the life insurance policy against death by fright. But there was much more to his Hollywood career than this cycle, however innovative and indelible it may have been. He directed more than fifty films between 1944 and 1974, and produced both The Lady from Shanghai (1947) and Rosemary's Baby (1968).
