Stony Brook University and Florence University of the Arts
are pleased to announce the 7th Annual Conference that will take place in Florence on the 4th and 5th of December 2015.
The international conference is entitled:
DE RE MEDITERRANEA
How does "Mare Nostrum" shape the civilizations and societies inhabiting its geographical reach?
Despite borders shared by the diverse shores of southern Europe, North Africa, and Anatolia,
is it possible to speak of a Mediterranean identity?
The conference explores the many connections that define the Mediterranean as a symbol of tradition and modernity.

"Hybrid Identities in a Globalised World"
I am organizing a proposed panel on representations of the city within Faulkner's texts for the upcoming ALA Symposium "The City and American Literature." I'm looking for 2-4 proposals on any aspect of the city in Faulkner's works. If interested, please send a 250-500 word abstract to email@example.com by June 27, 2015.
Jefferson, Mississippi is definitely on the table, but I am especially interested in his treatments, portrayals, and uses of larger cites (Memphis, New Orleans, Chicago, Los Angeles, etc.).
The early promise of the Internet as an opportunity to enhance community, bringing people together to work together toward positive ends, long seemed a pipe dream. More recently, social media has become an undeniably powerful site of cultural influence and change. Women's issues in particular benefit from an expanded dialogue online.
The feminist movement has been categorised as a series of different waves, first, second and third, with some contemporary critics suggesting we are now on the precipice of a fourth wave. Each of these stages had their own aims and means of achieving those aims: underlying all was a quest for equality, for some or for all. Increasingly this neat categorization of the feminist movement has been questioned and challenged, especially with the internet age offering a greater platform of communication for female-identified individuals and feminists alike.

Unity and Division in the History of Art
41st Annual Cleveland Symposium
Friday, October 23, 2015
The Cleveland Museum of Art, Cleveland, Ohio
In what ways can the visual arts unite or divide humanity? How can their subjects and functions stir us to collaboration or lead to disagreement, apathy, or even war? How do objects themselves change when their relationships to one another, or to the viewer, are altered or rearranged?

In the impasse induced by crisis, being treads water; mainly, it does not drown. Even those whom you would think of as defeated are living beings figuring out how to stay attached to life from within it, and to protect what optimism they have for that, at least. - Lauren Berlant, "Cruel Optimism"
