Through a geocritical focus, the goal of this panel is to explore the significance of spatial identity. Building on the "Familiar Spirits" theme of the conference, this panel will focus on the spirit and identity of an area and its people. Topics can vary from an ecocritical approach to a tribal community's relationship with the spirit of land, to the spatial identity of post 9/11 urban landscapes, or anywhere in between.

Please submit all proposals through the conference website: www.pamla.org

Keynote: Dr James Purdon (Jesus College, Cambridge)

Taking place during the centenary of the First World War, 'Nature at War' is an interdisciplinary one-day symposium organised by the Postgraduate Forum of the Centre for Modern Studies at the University of York, exploring the dynamic between nature (broadly-conceived) and war from the mid-nineteenth to early twenty-first centuries.

Is the dynamic of nature and war essentially one of conflict, and if so, how can that conflict itself avoid being 'unnatural'? How do ideas of naturalness and unnaturalness manifest themselves in war contexts? Can 'war' reconceptualise or reform 'nature', and can 'war' be found in 'nature' – and to what end?

TEXTUAL TRAILS - TRANSMISSIONS OF ORAL AND WRITTEN TEXTS
11th Conference of the European Society for Textual Scholarship
Helsinki, 30 October - 1 November 2014

Texts tend to travel across space and time, carried by sound waves, written on parchments and codices, sealed in envelopes and travel trunks, and streaming as bits in the internet. They pass from mouth to mouth, from singers' performances to scholars' notes, from stone engravings to printed books, or from writing desks to digital editions.

"Ours is a culture and a time immensely rich in trash as it is in treasures."
—Ray Bradbury

"[T]rash talks to us, or certainly speaks of us. However much we want to put trash and garbage and waste and rubbish out of sight, out of mind, out of smell, there is considerable evidence that we take them to be revelatory of all manner of not insignificant facts about individuals, communities, civilizations, or that tired old workhorse the 'human condition.'"
—Elizabeth V Spelman
