'Being Non/Human' is organising a conference for 2015 on the topic of 'bodily borders' and we invite any postgraduate or early career researcher interested in this theme to submit an abstract or propose a panel. Being Non/Human is an interdisciplinary group that engages with research on interactions between the human and nonhuman, providing a forum for graduate students and early career researchers to present current research. We hope this conference will offer a similar opportunity.
Writing in 1978, founders Bill Mollison and David Holmgren coined the term permaculture—a portmanteau compounding and eliding "permanent agriculture"—to signify a design ethics suitable to an imminently low-energy future. In the intervening years, "permaculture" has become a truly global movement, inspiring home gardeners and farmers, intentional communities and design courses, and artists and activists, coming to refer more broadly to all aspects of culture, and referring as much to an ethics of life and the living as to principles of conscientious and efficient design.

As most any military conflict has shown, humanity's wars are rarely of benefit to the natural world. Our bullets maim and kill countless animals; our bombs denude and decimate entire communities of plant life. Animals are even increasingly conscripted into the military itself, in the form of fighting dogs, bomb-detecting dolphins, and spying insects. But all of this is not necessarily new: weaponized animals go back as far as the medieval and even classical worlds, and of course animals have been combatants and casualties of war since time out of mind. Yet, war is not always bad for nature.
The Chesnutt Association will sponsor two sessions at the American Literature Conference, May 21-24, 2014 at the Westin Copley Place, 10 Huntington Avenue, Boston MA 02116-5798 (800-916-4339)
Session 1: The role of supporting characters in Chesnutt's fiction. Chesnutt's protagonists are always surrounded by a cast of fascinating characters: shrewd males and females of various classes, clever children, martyrs, workers, rebels, cheats and misfits, along with perfect models of humanity. These characters are often overlooked or undervalued by critics. Think in terms of the essential value of these characters in relation to Chesnutt's purpose, aesthetic, etc.
Session 2. Open Topic.

Ethos: A Digital Review of the Arts, Humanities, and Public Ethics—a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary online journal and digital forum based at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill—invites submissions for its April 2015 issue, entitled "Contemporary Film and Public Life." For this issue of Ethos, we invite submissions of original scholarly work that consider recent films (roughly defined in terms of the past twenty years) and the weight they bring to bear on our contemporary public life. What patterns and preoccupations characterize the current generation of films? How do certain popular genres of film (the Western, the romantic comedy, etc.) differ from their predecessors?
Abstracts (200 words) requested on carnivalization and the carnivalesque in composition and literature as well as related topics. Full CFP available from firstname.lastname@example.org. Conference to be held in Clarkston, GA, just outside Atlanta.
