War has been one of the few constants in human history, waged by nations, tribes, and other factions for numerous reasons—some valid and noble, some questionable. This area will feature papers that explore the ways that wars—declared and undeclared, just and unjust, sacred and profane, fictional and "real"—have impacted the social, economic, technological, ideological, and other aspects of culture.

In our rapidly shifting culture, what defines the contemporary moment is fluid and impossible to pin down. This conference will look at the relations between newness, sameness, fluidity, and change in cinema and cinematic technologies from all eras. The cinematic apparatus itself is a technology of repetition and replication, and the effects of postmodern culture are marked by self-replication, simulation, and mediation. Postmodernism is about the now, and borrows from the surfaces of history while losing the history itself. Cinema and the cinematic is increasingly marked by intermediality of both culture and "text" and constant expansion of what these terms can mean.

The Illustrated Texts session welcomes papers as well as innovative or even illustrative presentations that interrogate the concept of illustration broadly construed. In addition to proposals that explore traditionally illustrated texts, this panel also invites proposals that question the illustrative nature of much of our own work. Does illustration "light up, clear up, or elucidate" our text as its etymology suggests or is it operating differently?

Now that over half a century has passed since Lionel Abel coined the term 'metatheatre' with particular reference to the drama of Shakespeare and his contemporaries and even identified a new genre, the 'metaplay', it is time for a conference that will bring together academics and theatre practitioners to re-assess the place of metatheatre in early modern drama studies. This interdisciplinary conference will invite literary scholars and theatre historians as well as actors and directors to consider metatheatre's hugely influential role in critical theories, methodologies and lexicons, exploring its conceptual significance both in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and our own historical period.
