The modernist period, as the theme of this year's conference suggests, was a period marked by revolutions of various stripes: aesthetic, social, cultural, and political.

Please consider submitting a proposal (panel or paper) for next year's conference, "Translation and Transmission in the Early Americas: The Fourth Early Ibero/Anglo-Americanist Summit," which will convene in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area on 19-22 May, 2016.

•Philosophy and Rhetoric
We also seek short essays that encourage faculty to try overlooked, non-traditional texts inside the classroom and book reviews.
Submission deadline for our Summer issue is currently May 16, 2015.

Keynote Speaker: Professor Saidiya V. Hartman
Near the beginning of his breathtaking work in theological aesthetics, Hans Urs von Balthasar warns, "In a world that no longer has enough confidence in itself to affirm the beautiful, the proofs of the truth have lost their cogency."
