The Martineau Society will be hosting its 22nd annual conference in Birmingham, England. The Martineau Society conference is an interdisciplinary conference that focuses on the lives, work, and contributions of the Martineau family, including its two most famous and influential members, Harriet Martineau (1802-1876) and James Martineau (1805-1900).
Started by Norwich Unitarians in 1994, the Martineau Society encourages scholarship on the Martineau family and their nineteenth-century context as well as their continuing influence.
Supporting the concept of mulitdisciplinary, interdisciplinary and transdiciplinarity the meeting welcomes papers in different academic disciplines. The participants will have an opportunity to discuss the newest developments in higher education. EMF 2016 will gather researchers, policy makers and company employees from all around the globe, who will have opportunity to express their attitudes towards current challenges education is facing with and suggest further steps for societal development.
"The times they are a-changing," but we are still quoting an old white male to describe the situation. The Midwest has long been thought of as pretty monolithic: all white, all farms, all "average," all cold, and flat. The borders of other US regions seem to be easier to define, but the Midwest has often been white-washed by too-easy definitions of who lives there and what life is like.
During the early modern period, national identity was increasingly defined by the dynamic between people and the environment they populated. While many still longed for the pastoral ideal of Britain as the 'Eden of Europe', the looming threat of pollution, natural disaster, resource depletion, and urbanisation beset the thoughts of contemporary writers, theologians, and politicians. Though it had been long held that the environment had an observable influence on the fortunes of a nation and the character of its citizens, the inhabitants of early modern Britain now became gradually conscious of their impact on the natural world.

What forms does religion take in the United States? I am assembling for MLA 2017 a panel of papers that take a formal approach to the study of American religions. Such approaches could include, but are not limited to, the influence of literary, cultural, political, or economic forms on theologies, practices, or spiritualities. Studies that focus on topics like race, gender, modernity, and secularism are welcome, and papers can be located in any time period or region. Ideally, the panel will include papers on Christian and other religions in the United States.
Please submit a 150-200 word proposal and a brief CV to Wilson Brissett (Wilson.firstname.lastname@example.org) by 15 March 2016.
We're looking for female writers to submit a story with the theme of "chosen" or "defeating the odds," and no more than 2,500- 5,000 words. All stories should be Young Adult or New Adult, but can be dark and ominous, humorous, or even fantastical; you decide.
Stories should be submitted in standard manuscript format as a Microsoft word document. Send the story as an email attachment (stories sent in the body of the email will not be considered). All stories must be unpublished. Although, this is an unpaid endeavor, this is for a great cause, and a great way to be published, and a great way to get reviews and press. Proceeds will go to Project READ's drop-in center in Liberia, Nedra House.

The concept of evil is age old, but the way it manifests in cultural narratives has continuously shifted. From the theological to the psychological, evil is a core theme of tales across the ages. What does the way it is portrayed tell us? Does it still hold as much significance? This one day conference at the University of Southampton will explore representations of evil in its many guises. Papers from across disciplines are welcomed. Suggestions for topics include (but by no means are limited to):
