The fifth annual British Association for Holocaust Studies Conference invites scholars, educators and practitioners to submit papers on any aspect of Holocaust studies. Papers should relate to any current debates or developments in the field, and submissions are welcome from across disciplines. The BAHS conference is an opportunity for scholars and educators to engage in dialogue, and to acknowledge their shared project of promoting understanding of the Holocaust. As such we are interested in submissions of papers or workshops from practitioners involved in any aspect of Holocaust education or representation. Submissions from PhD students and early career scholars are especially welcome.
Following the economic development of the mid-nineteenth century, writers and journalists increasingly focused on urban contexts and the experience of protagonists moving from rural to urban backgrounds. As a result, modern authors refer to the coagulating ferment of the metropolis for characters undergoing a formative change, while more numerous voices later investigated the opposite, the fragmenting if not destructive impact on both individuals and the social groups they belong to.
Literature during the years between the World Wars reflected the angst, chaos, and turmoil of modernity. Psychoanalysis gave rise to the diagnoses of "hysteria" and "Shell-shocked." Individuals struggled with political and economic instability. The Influenza pandemic spread fear as millions succumbed to the infection. Artists captured this period of turbulent historical and cultural change through their prose and poems. The Rocky Mountain Modern Language Association's panel on "English Literature since 1900" seeks papers that explore the connections of medicine, psychoanalysis, and science, in modernist texts.

CONTRIBUTE TO A MODERN LANGUAGE ASSOCIATION (MLA) APPROACHES VOLUME ON TEACHING THE WORKS OF EDITH WHARTON
The volume, Approaches to Teaching the Works of Edith Wharton, edited by Ferdâ Asya, is now in development in the MLA series Approaches to Teaching World Literature.
As with other similar books published by the MLA, this one will contain a discussion of the most important and useful materials available to teachers—in this case, of the works of Edith Wharton—and it will be composed largely of essays by instructors. A list of books published in the series can be found on the MLA Website (http://www.mla.org) under MLA Library.
“The natural object,” Pound writes, “is always the adequate symbol.” Nevertheless, Modernist literature is plotted along bodily representations that often seem far from the realities of their correlative “natural object.” This panel will consider the tension between Modernism’s representative strategies and the gendered objects that Modernist writers “graph,” focusing particularly on Modernist representations of female, queer, non-white, disabled, and otherwise marginalized bodies. How do the literary strategies of Modernist writers complicate, limit, or make space for bodies, or bodily functions, that might have been given a “Graphic Content Warning”?
