Space Between Society: Literature and Culture 1914-1945

The 18th annual conference of the Space Between Society focuses on the concept of surveillance—watching, listening, recording—as it relates to literature, art, history, music, theatre, media, and spatial or material culture between 1914 and 1945. From the rise of totalitarianism to the dwindling borders of the British Empire, global citizens were under constant scrutiny as governments, artists, and documentarians developed new ways of listening in.

Association for Welsh Writing in English

Wales has a distinctive national culture. The 2011 Census, however, indicated that the Welsh, like other British nationals, were becoming more culturally diverse. This is not surprising: the effects of the World imposing itself on Wales – industrialisation in the nineteenth century, for example – are continuous and impact profoundly on its literature.

NEMLA, The Northeast Modern Language Association

This panel invites submissions on the subject of disability as represented and narrativized in postcolonial literatures and cinema of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. How do these texts represent, complicate, and undermine the concept of disability? How do disabled characters function in these narratives and to what effect? How does disability intersect with issues of gender, class, race, and ethnicity? How does it inform the construction of citizenship?

Papers might address but are not limited to:

- Disability and war

- Disability, gender, and/or sexuality

- Disability on screen

- Disability and care

- Disability and international aid

- Disability and prostheses

University of Debrecen, Hungary

The Hungarian Journal of English and American Studies seeks to publish the best of Hungarian and international scholarship in all the fields covered by English and American Studies, including but not limited to literature, history, art, philosophy, religion, and theory. Manuscripts are welcome and are subject to rigorous peer reviewing: the contribution is first reviewed by the editor; if judged to be potentially publishable, the contribution is sent to consultants for further review; once the contribution has been tentatively accepted, the HJEAS editors work with the author to prepare it for publication.
