CFP: Diversity in Midwestern Studies

Tuesday, January 26, 2016 - 10:29am

"The times they are a-changing," but we are still quoting an old white male to describe the situation. The Midwest has long been thought of as pretty monolithic: all white, all farms, all "average," all cold, and flat. The borders of other US regions seem to be easier to define, but the Midwest has often been white-washed by too-easy definitions of who lives there and what life is like.

Green Britain: Nationhood and the Environment 1500-1750

Tuesday, January 26, 2016 - 9:32am
Centre for Reformation and Early Modern Studies, University of Birmingham

During the early modern period, national identity was increasingly defined by the dynamic between people and the environment they populated. While many still longed for the pastoral ideal of Britain as the 'Eden of Europe', the looming threat of pollution, natural disaster, resource depletion, and urbanisation beset the thoughts of contemporary writers, theologians, and politicians. Though it had been long held that the environment had an observable influence on the fortunes of a nation and the character of its citizens, the inhabitants of early modern Britain now became gradually conscious of their impact on the natural world.

States of the Book - 23-24 September

Tuesday, January 26, 2016 - 8:21am
Department of English and Philosophy / United States Military Academy at West Point

The Department of English and Philosophy at West Point will host an interdisciplinary symposium to consider the relation of the material text to the formation and function of states and state-like structures. In particular, we seek to investigate the methods and effects of state and institutional manipulation of textual materialities to create, control, or shape responses. We welcome abstracts that consider texts from the oral ancient to the digital contemporary.

Keynote speaker: Michael F. Suarez, S.J. (University Professor and Director of the Rare Book School at the University of Virginia, Member of the National Council on the Humanities).
