Landscape studies is multidisciplinary and has far-reaching academic connections and a diverse array of approaches that give the field its strength. The goal of the Landscape, Space and Place (LSP) conference is to bring together scholars across various disciplinary backgrounds to exchange ideas and consider novel intellectual perspectives. We also hope to encourage a more integrative framework upon which to build the future of the field. As part of the 10th anniversary of this rich and diverse conference, we are inviting faculty and graduate students to contribute abstracts that will comprise workshop-type panels and foster generative discussions about the role of space and place in our research.

Charles Town International Maroon Conference

Indigenous communities offer models of collective sustainability, territorial sovereignty, ecological justice, and cultural persistence, keenly appealing to a world threatened by environmental pillage and ideological warfare. The Eighth Annual Charles Town International Maroon Conference aims to build a global indigenous community without borders. Legacy of the recently deceased Colonel Frank Lumsden, leader of the Charles Town Maroons, this vision of global unity among geographically distinct yet politically allied indigenous communities advances an alternative to global disaster that combines transnational commonality with cultural specificity and political purpose.

Old age and aging in Northern Irish and Irish theatre and drama - Seeking last contributions for an edited collection

Tuesday, December 22, 2015 - 9:08pm
dr Katarzyna Bronk

The editors of the collection of essays on old age and aging in (currently) British theatre and drama have received a few wonderful contributions on Irish playwrights and plays. We therefore decided to potentially broaden the scope of the initially planned publication and include some more essays, focused on Irish and Northern Irish dramaturgy and old age/aging.

We invite abstracts on the following topics but other notions related to age, the elderly and aging in drama across centuries are likewise encouraged:

• biological, chronological, functional, cultural definitions of old age, senescence and aging in drama but also beyond

• performativity of old age (markers of old age; the old body on stage; etc)

Spencer Tricker

Writing of the Pacific in 1870, Walt Whitman proclaimed that the U.S. was "destined to the mastership of that sea and its countless paradises of islands." While the touchstone year of U.S. Imperialism in that hemisphere remains 1898, literary representations of the Pacific and its peoples are present throughout the long nineteenth century.

Gradaute Conference: Seeking Refuge, 23-24 May, 2016

King's College London

The OED defines 'refuge' as "the state of being safe or sheltered from pursuit, danger or difficulty." As this all-encompassing definition suggests, refuge is a multifarious concept, subject to many interpretations. Conditions of economic, social and political crisis in our contemporary world have, however, rendered achieving 'refuge' an ever more elusive state.
