CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS : DECEMBER, 2014
More than an excellent, absurdist 2001 film set during the Bosnian War, "No Man's Land" is an idiom overused to inutility. It was a cliché long before I was born and learned what it meant or what a cliché was.

8th Global Conference: Interculturalism, Meaning and Identity

Saturday 14th March – Monday 16th March 2015, Lisbon, Portugal

Call for Presentations:
Interculturalism stands at the interface between the individual, local groups, societies and cultures. These compete, conflict, co-exist and trigger reactions and responses on a number of levels including the social, the economic, the political and the personal. These are reinforced through language, the media, cultural events, social institutions and migration policies. Amidst all these dynamic and static forms of interaction, identities are built and consolidated.

1st Global Conference: Happiness

Saturday 14th March – Monday 16th March 2015
Lisbon, Portugal

Call for Presentations:
This inter- and multi-disciplinary conference seeks to explore one of the most basic and universal human desires: happiness. Aristotle spoke of happiness as the only phenomenon which is an end in itself. The nation of Bhutan has established a system that attempts to quantify happiness: the Gross National Happiness Index. Each culture and age interprets the nature of happiness differently, and every art form of every era finds different ways to express and capture it.

7th Global Conference: Hope

Saturday 14th March – Monday 16th March 2015
Lisbon, Portugal

Call for Presentations:
When Pandora's box emptied all of its ills that would plague the world, one small winged creature still remained: HOPE. This project inquires into the nature of this gift. Is hope, in fact, a good, encouraging us to do or be good? Or is it an evil; an illusion, perhaps an impossible fantasy? How does hope manifest itself in the world, in language, literature, and the arts? How should hope be encouraged? Is hope individual or collective in nature? Or both? What does hope contribute to individual or national identity?

ASECS 2015: Minor Authors and Minor Genres: Re-examining the Creation of the Eighteenth-Century Literary Canon

By the end of the eighteenth-century, thanks to literary histories such as Samuel Johnson's Lives of the Poets and Thomas Warton's The History of English Poetry, along with the beginning of literary criticism, the framework of the eighteenth-century canon we still use today had already been created. Writers who were lauded by Johnson and Warton as the writers of the age are for the most part still anthologized and taught in undergraduate courses in today's universities. However, an entire oeuvre of white male authors of the dominant political party—such as Elkanah Settle, Colley Cibber, and Warton himself—are relatively unexplored even though they exerted influence over literary culture as City Poet and Poets Laureate, respectively.

Languages on Trial: Translation and the Law, NeMLA, 30 April - 3 May, 2014

In appealing to the law, one must appeal to language. This raises the question of what kind of appeal to language can be made before the law, and in what ways the law depends on language. Consider Socrates in Plato's "Apology" for instance, pleading to his fellow Athenians to treat him as a stranger, to act as if he were a foreigner, an outsider, one ignorant of the 'native tongue' spoken in Athens. One might highlight how this Socratic 'as if' introduces narrativity and fiction into the very core of legal thought, a narrativity and fiction that the law is both troubled by and which it nevertheless frequently utilizes.
