English: The Journal of the English Association invites contributions to a special issue on literature, landscape and the environment.

In the years since the publication of seminal texts such as Carson's Silent Spring, and with environmental concerns never more pressing, ecocriticism has become firmly established in literary studies as a way to think about the challenges facing writers and their readers. Moreover, literary critical engagement with the environment has been enriched in recent years through intersectional work with fields as diverse as disability studies, spatial studies, gender theory, and post-humanism.

Animals in Literature and Film, MMLA 2016

MMLA

This year's MMLA Animals in Literature and Film panel invites papers engaging in tensions of "human" and "animal" found within a variety of cultural textualities in the broad field of animal studies. Since "animality" has often historically been equated with "primitive," in a derogatory sense, and "human" with the rise of civilization and modernity, or the westernization of the world and globalization, this panel seeks papers that disrupt these categorizations through the examination of a wide range of perspectives on animals in diverse texts. To that end, we seek papers analyzing all types of "texts," broadly understood, from mythological sources and artistic representations to music, film, and literature.

In this panel for the 05-08 January 2017 Modern Language Association (MLA) Convention in Philadelphia, PA, the Association for Business Communication (ABC) invites interested participants to submit abstracts for a panel on "Issues in Intergenerational Business Communication in the Workplace."

Scholars have turned to intergenerational conflict as an object of study because interpersonal communication in workplaces is growing more complicated as Baby Boomers work beyond traditional retirement age and young employees enter the workforce.
