WRITING LIVES IN EUROPE, 1500-1700University College Dublin, 6-8 September 2018 Call for Papers This conference on life writing/self writing will address questions related to life writing across Europe between1500-1700, in particular the influence of different religious, social, cultural and national perspectives on theemergence of various forms of self-writing. We are particularly interested in relationships, connections, textualtraffic and circulation across Europe through networks such as intellectual circles/coteries, religious orders, andthe experience of exiled communities. Life writing has long historical roots, but such writings are arguably thefirst examples of demotic, vernacular writing in the period.

Imagining Life After Death: Past, Present, and Future
The Fourth Graduate Conference on Religion
Thursday and Friday, May 10-11, 2018
University of California, Los Angeles
DEADLINE EXTENDED until February 2, 2018
The 75th annual South Central Modern Language Association convention will be held in San Antonio, Texas from October 11-14 at the historic Menger Hotel on the River Walk, right next door to the Alamo. San Antonio is the perfect city for this year’s theme, “Crossroads of Cultures.” Through the art, architecture and design of the city, it is evident that there were, and are, different cultures crossing paths and influencing each other, now and over the past several centuries. San Antonio is a cultural kaleidoscope that began with the native indigenous peoples who made their home here. The arrival of the Spanish people and, later, the Anglos, resulted in a new culture that permeates almost every place in the United States: the Hispanic American culture.

Irreconcilable differences? Peace and Conflict in Irish Literature, Culture, and Politics. 10th Biennial Conference of the Nordic Irish Studies Network (Kristiansand, Norway, 3-4 May 2018)
Irish Studies is a contested field. Much of this can be construed as a healthy sign of differences of opinion or approach, but dissension can also be the source of weakening fragmentation and waste. This conference wishes to address notions of peace and conflict in a constructive manner, in a way that crosses the disciplines of Irish Studies.
