‘What does marriage look like today?’ will be the crucial question in our upcoming issue on gender and marriage in the 21st century. Embedded in this are ethical and sociological deliberations on the values of contemporary forms of marriage and partnership in different cultures with ever faster-changing societies. What is the status of marriage in a world that faces demographic transitions, shifts in the composition of families, increasing divorce rates, secularisation on the one hand and religious conservatism on the other? In the discussion of such pressing questions we will cover a wide area of subjects ranging from marriage equality, arranged and forced marriages to domestic violence and plural marriages.

A Critical Companion to James Cameron
Edited by Adam Barkman and Antonio Sanna
12-14 January 2018, University of York
The UK’s decision to leave the European Union constitutes the most momentous separation of British-European political culture since the Protestant Reformation. As scholarly and public interest in ideas of British political identity continues to sharpen, this conference explores themes of division and devolution in drama written at the dawn of the British Empire. Looking to Britain’s uncertain future by learning about its past can tell us much about how literature responds to drastic political change, not least in terms of the territories (real and imagined) with which it is invested. Recent events across the Atlantic also point to the complex dis/unities of political leadership, religion, and physical spaces.
