'When […] does occupation become possession? Who has a right to occupy what space? Who must work for whom? What happens in our society to those who can't—or simply won't—work? What obligations do we have to those who prefer not to fit into the system, or run on the hamster's wheel?' Jonathan D. Greenberg.

Our theme for the 2015 interdisciplinary SWES conference is "Transitions" and what that means to the disciplines we work in - across English, the Humanities, Arts, Business, Politics, Sciences, Social spheres, and Technology. The concept is often relevant to scholars in many fields and especially to those whose work straddles the boundaries of one or more disciplines.

Individuals from around the globe travel to Louisiana early in the year to participate in Mardi Gras celebrations. Masks, costumes and reverie encourage participants to shed certain prefigured aspects of identity in order to become something new. Much of the excitement these traditions allow is rooted in the idea that one can undergo a personal, transformative experience by relinquishing a prefigured sense of self.
This panel seeks to explore the interactions between Europe and the Arab world in the long eighteenth century. The panel is interested in papers that explore the following questions: What interactions were there between European and Arab writers? How did trade and commerce affect the literary sphere? How did European writers engage the Arabic literary tradition and vice versa? How did Arab writers present Europe in their writings and how did European authors depict the Arab world? How did texts travel across different literary traditions? What role did cross-cultural networks play in shaping the literary marketplace?

Natures 2015: Reading the Books of Nature
Authors and artists, from Galileo to Rousseau, Woolfe to Kingsolver, Attenborough to Cousteau, have been exploring how to read or record nature for thousands of years. We seek papers that continue this quest in the context of any genre, time period, or discipline within the humanities. Topics may include, but are not limited to:
• A particular character's or author's way or reading or misreading nature, speaking to or speaking against nature.
• Representations of nature as pitifully silenced victim, ominously silent threat, or speaking agent.
• Linking or de-linking nature with books, reading, or writing.
• The 'book of nature' as a parallel to, or competitor with, sacred texts.
