The phenomenon of migration is well-established in the history of human societies, where individuals or groups of people have moved from one place to another, either across international borders or internally within a state, for various reasons, such as political, religious, social, or economic. The experience of migration, whether it applies to refugees, displaced persons, or economic migrants, raises a number of important questions in terms of its effects on the individual and on society. These questions relate to the negotiation of identity on the part of the migrant, the effects of personal and cultural displacement, and not least questions concerning global justice and human rights.

I seek contributors to an edited collection focused on the intersection between disability studies and literary ecology, particularly as it plays out in American literature and culture. More specifically, the collection will investigate the role that literary ecology plays in upholding what might be called the ecosomatic paradigm. As a theoretical framework, the ecosomatic paradigm underscores the dynamic and inter-relational (and thereby ecological) process wherein human mind-bodies interface with the places, both built and wild, they inhabit. That is, the ecosomatic paradigm proceeds from the assumption that nature and culture interact in an ongoing, dialectical relationship that has implications for both the human subject and the natural world.

Annual conference for GUEST (Groupe Universitaire d'Études sur les Séries Télévisées)
The Northeast Modern Language Association will meet in Toronto, Ontario, for its 46th annual convention, held April 30 to May 3 2015. Every year, this event affords NeMLA's principal opportunity to carry on a tradition of lively research and pedagogical exchange in language and literature. This year's convention will include roundtable and caucus meetings, workshops, literary readings, film screenings, and guest speakers.
This one day conference is intended to explore the role of our concept of 'transition' in literary studies. This exploration
can be phrased in a series of questions, with the foremost being whether our cultural definitions are more reflective of
critical trends than of changes in artistic practice. For example, is James Joyce's Ulysses the high point of literary
modernism and, simultaneously, the beginning of postmodernism? Or does this retroactive critical summation do artistic
violence to an open text? If we agree that there are such things as transitions, then we might ask a further set of questions:
How do changes in form reflect changing historical or technological conditions? What happens to the old category upon
This issue aims to investigate the interplay between censorship and self-censorship in a variety of domains, from literary works to audio-visual media, from criticism to cultural mediation, in order to re-examine the relationship between censorship and artistic expression. We will focus our investigation on the following themes:
